Lars - my wife is upset that I'm upset, but she's pretty ok with not having any more kids. I thought I would be, but I'm REALLY having a hard time. Where we live, options for getting donor sperm are extremely limited due to legislation - highly regulated, etc etc - so it would be $620 + $400/IUI cycle. That's really our biggest barrier, is the $1000 price tag off the bat for one cycle, and then more for each cycle... it all depends on what happens with her job in the next month, really. She's open to it if a) we can afford it and b) we get it done fairly quickly - she's going to be 43 in July and she doesn't want to be in her mid-60s at her kids' high school grad. I'll be 35 in October, so my clock is slightly against us as well.

Hello everyone! I'm new to this thread, but I've been watching it for a couple weeks now. I'm hoping to have my first IUI sometime within the next week or so. My DH and I have been diagnosed with secondary unexplained infertility. We were able to have our first child after only four months of trying. He was born in 2012. We started trying for our second in 2014, so it's been about 3 years with no luck. I'm 36 so I'm really hoping for baby dust. I know this doesn't get easier with age. Also, there is already a large gap in age between my DS and any future siblings so I'm really hoping for him that it happens soon as well. Thanks for reading.

We're going to shoot for IUI this fall. DH completed treatment for prostate cancer and sperm banked before starting. We knew that post-treatment, he would pretty much be infertile. I'm 33 and will be 34 before starting, so I know my IUI stats will be a little iffy. Just praying for

Best wishes, Lar Praying for a sticky bean for you!!

Hopefully 1-2 rounds of IUI. We have 4 chances with the remaining sperm, so we want to save a little just in case we need to use IVF. IVF would be a last resort, of course. We have two little boys, so our family is definitely blessed. Would love a shot at a little girl though

We're doing our first unmedicated IUI next week w/donor. I'm hopeful, we're going to try 3 unmedicated before moving on to light medication (I have high med sensitivity and the doctor wanted to reduce my risk for multiples or OHSS).

Fingers crossed!

Hi Parabola we will be starting our first IUI next week as well, I'm guessing the IUI will be completed on either saturday or sunday (may 20-21). We are using a low dose of femara. Sending lots of luck to everyone this month!
