ok that didnt seem to work so I guess I will just have to keep posting in here.. I am 'Julianne Clark - London' on facebook if you want to find me on there..

Rainbowmum - we went to LWC and had 1 try at a medicated IUI.. I thought they were great.. any thoughts on which clinic you might go to? I hear guys hospital are very good too..

mer01 - tried to put you in my contacts so we could chat but it keeps saying I cannot use that function as yet..

MTPA - You will need to let me know how you get on with your delivery! I think given you are in the US it might be different to here in any case but any info you could give me would be great!!

(strange, the rules state that you can start sending PMs once you reach 5 posts)

We might try MFS(Manchester), will compare prices again closer to treatment start, but don't really feel like coming down to London for every appointment.
Like London they have their own sperm bank and no waiting lists.

My cycle is really, really regular (28 days) so hopefully I'll be able to do it unmedicated, but I guess we'll see all that in about 6 months

My clinic gives the choice:

Quote:
In women with regular menstrual cycles we usually recommend insemination in an unstimulated cycle and time the insemination by reference to the woman's mid cycle ovulatory surge.

In women with irregular or infrequent cycles, the ovaries are stimulated with clomiphene or low dose gonadotrophins.

My partner and me went the home route - it worked the first month and now we have a beautiful little girl who is almost one. We did try 3 times in that first month though, night before O, night of O and night after. One tip is to lay with your legs in the air.

Good luck to everyone, feel free to PM me x

do you mind me asking if you got your swimmers from a clinic? if yes what did they look like ? sorry I know an odd question but need to get some clarity so hopefully we can go down that route..

MTPA - you can go unmedicated and just ovulate normally or you can have daily injections which increase your chances of having more than one egg and they say increase the quality of your egg.. I did medicated adn still ended up with 1 egg as they had to reduce my dosage as I was growing 4 large follicles whcih would have produced four eggs and they are not comfortable with that many, 2 is ideal, 3 is a push, 4 means cancelling the procedure so we backed off and I got one egg.. Alas it didnt work but I dont think that was because I was medicated or not... Hope that helps!

No, our swimmers were donated by a friend who made a fresh delivery to our bedroom door every night It was the most disgusting thing I have EVER experienced but it was worth it But the fresh stuff well basically it was white. I have read that it can be anywhere from white to slightly yellow? That was my only experience with it so... TBH the best piece of advice I read was to make sure you enjoy it and not be too uptight about it, yeah its gross but whats the point of just shoving it up there and hoping for the best? Might aswell enjoy it.. And thats all I'm gonna say, since this part of the forum is open to the public PM me if you want to talk about it more, when we were ttc - even though it was just for that one month - I felt like I was stuck on some random island with no one to talk to who really knew what it was like.
