How many IUIs before BFP
I'm just curious how many IUIs it usually takes to get a BFP, or did you give up and try something else?I'm asking this question for a friend who is waiting to see if her 2nd IUI worked. She is feeling very discouraged and has lots of questions.

Thanks for sharing your experiences.

Re: How many IUDs before BFP
I'm thinking you mean IUI? :)
If so, I was lucky and have gotten pregnant on the first try both times I have had one. I think 3-4 is the average though...and of course for some women they just don't have any luck and need to move onto IVF.

Re: How many IUDs before BFP
I got pregnant on every IUI I had, just miscarried all of those pregnancies or had them end in chemicals.
Most doctors recommend trying 3 IUI's at least before moving on to IVF, but it's a personal choice. It also changes things if they are dealing just MFI, just female factor, both, etc.

Re: How many IUIs before BFP
Thanks for your quick response and correcting me,lol. It's been a long morning, and I'm not sure what I was thinking.

Her doctor is wanting her to try at least 3 too, but the BFNs are hard.

Re: How many IUIs before BFP
I understand how your friend feels. I just talked to my doctor yesterday about how many IUI's we should try before moving on and her recommendation was to try 3-4 for our specific situation, but having AF show up again yesterday just gets me down to keep trying IUI's sometimes. We are pushing forward and trying another IUI in 2 weeks and adding in Clomid, so perhaps your friend can ask her doctor what else she can try with the IUI to give her a better chance? It is hard to get the BFN's but I hope her next IUI gives her the BFP she is looking for! Good luck to her with whatever she chooses to do!

Re: How many IUIs before BFP
We did 3 unmedicated IUIs and 3 medicated IUIs over the course of a year; all were unsuccessful. We could have done more with different meds but decided to move on to IVF.

Re: How many IUIs before BFP
My Dr suggested 6 IUIs before moving on to IVF.We never got pg with them and moved on after 5 medicated IUIs w clomid or femara.

A friend from hs had luck on her 5th injectible cycle.

Re: How many IUIs before BFP
4 IUI's with Clomid, 2 IUI's with injectible meds. The 2nd injectible cycle worked for my first baby. So.... In total, 6 IUIs

Re: How many IUIs before BFP
Thanks guys. I have no experience with IUIs. We went straight into IVF.
