  1. I love hearing IUI stories, I swear every cycle is so drastically different!!! I’ve done 5 so far, and I’m taking a break this month. Super aggressive hormones last month and I just had to tap out and regroup! Baby dust to you!!

    1. Unfortunately for us, IUI was a bust. We did a total of five, and after the fifth failed we stopped. Because of my endometriosis we determined that IUI and our mere 12% odds of success was more like a .01% chance. We will me moving on to IVF in the fall/winter if we can secure a loan. I’m glad you are giving yourself a chance to regroup. I had surgery after our second failed IUI. We did three more after survey. I hope IUI works for you, I certainly wish it ha me worked for us.

      1. Wow!! It’s so crazy to me how we are all so different and each experience is complete unique!!! Truly, I hope IVF works for you. We’ve always agreed we wouldn’t move on to IVF merely because of the price…. however by the time all’s said and done we will probably have spent that much over time anyway! 🙄

      2. For us, it came down to the heartbreak involved. Each failed IUI hurt a little bit more. We want children. We can’t just keep doing the same thing and expecting different results. I hope IVF works quickly, because we can’t take too much more heartbreak. I also think setting limits is good. Once we start IVF, we have to decide how much we can take. With IUI, I think we both knew five or six was our limit. With IVF, we will need to set similar rules. Obviously we will use every embryo we manage to create, but what happens if we have no viable embryos from the start? We will determine how many times we will try. Then we at least know when to stop, and move on…

      3. Yes… I can see that and I totally agree- this the break in my own schedule. I’ve really tried to set boundaries and limits but all of this is uncharted and you just kind of have to wing it to some extent, and allow yourself to feel how you feel… I guess!

  2. Love reading this! It is so hard to go through month after month of trying so hard. I myself have the “who cares” months where I do everything I shouldn’t do fertility wise. The consistent negative tests are so exhausting. You will be in my thoughts!
