We used preseed on the outside of the condom and it was no problem. Post wash sperm count was 15.7 million and they like to see 5-10 million.

How's everything doing? I am going for my 4th IUI tomorrow morning. Hopefully 4th time is the charm.

Hi Dani. I am doing my 3rd IUI tomorrow morning! Good luck to you! Have you decided how many IUI's you will do? I am going to try doing mine tomorrow with a full bladder since it could lead to better results. I didn't do that the first two times. Maybe that is something to try if you haven't already?

We had our IUI on the same day again! I have two more vials of donor sperm left, so 6 tries total and then we will go from there and decide what to do next. Good luck!!

Hey Dani, I didn't realize we did the IUI on the same day last cycle too! I must have forgotten. How did it go today? Did you get a trigger shot? Do you know when you are testing? I am thinking I might test out my trigger this time. I haven't decided if that will help me with my nerves or make them worse.

So last month I did the trigger shot 36 hours before my scheduled IUI at 8am and I went up for an ultrasound right before and my dominant follicle was 28mm. Since they still saw it on the ultrasound, that meant I hadn’t ovulated and they wanted me to come back later on. I ended up having my IUI at 6pm that night – so 46 hours after my trigger. This time, they scheduled my trigger shot for 24 hours before my scheduled IUI and I went up for an ultrasound right before and my dominant follicles was 21mm and still there. They told me I was good to go and I did my IUI 24 hours after trigger… I used frozen donor sperm, which isn’t supposed to last as long as fresh sperm. I am really concerned that by the time my egg dropped (I think I felt ovulation pain last night at about 37 hours after trigger – 13 hours after IUI), that the sperm will have already died. I’m so confused as to why they said I was good to go, when last time I wasn’t. I guess I should just trust they know what they are doing. I really want this to work asap and I feel like I am already out this time.

I'm sorry Dani, that's frustrating. Do you temp to confirm O? Did you ask why the protocol was different from last cycle?

How long do washed sperm live? I've read frozen don't live as long...but anyone know how long fresh washed live?

When I asked the nurse about it she said they wouldn't recommend for me to do it then if they didn't think it was going to work. The nurse said the reason why they made me trigger 24 hours before IUI instead was because my LH was 15 on CD 13 (2 days before IUI). The nurse told me that washed sperm live for 48-72 hours and that frozen sperm live for at least 48 hours and not to worry... everything I found online says that frozen sperm are only really good for the first 12 hours.

That sounds super frustrating Dani! I have trouble trusting the REs and nurses sometimes too, especially when they switch things up on me like that. I hope the timing wasn't off for you. Or if it was an off cycle for you, I hope next cycle will do the trick since it will be your last IUI!

I has the exact same experience!!! This is my 2nd IUI. I test tomorrow. I got my iui only 30 hrs after my trigger, then didn't feel my Ovulation pains untill 28 hrs after iui. I got to thinking is the sperm still alive in there??? So I went to "Dr Google". There is a lot of mixed info and my Dr office didn't respond to my email about my concerns. I'm just crossing my fingers my Dr knows what they are doing... next cycle I will be sure they wait untill 36 hrs after trigger!
