My fertility nurse said they had a 33% success rate for IUI (which I assumed was a general IUI stat but obviously not). Maybe it depends on the country or PCT (if you live in the UK)?

xxxxxxxxxx

Bebecake- Good luck with you IUI! What is a day 12 scan? I'm on my second IUI, but our count was only .2 million. I really do think sperm are stupid because they just swim around in there aimlessly and just bump into each other, and hopefully the egg! It takes a woman to help a man have any sense whatsoever! Ha!

And you say chances are low with IUI? How low? My dr. said about 30%, but I'm wondering if you've heard differently.
It is about 30% for people who do not have issues... Most of us in LTTC have issues, so our chances are lower. For example... I have stage 2 endo and unexplained infertility, so my chances to conceive without help is about 8%... Yeah, that low... With IUI they go up to about 15-20%, so not really good... Normal people with regular fertility have about a 20-25% chance every month... so even with the IUI I am not normal. It could be different for everyone depending on your challenges.

This is my third and last time to throw away money... but there is always hope, so I think that is why we do it...?

Unfortunately I think I am out. My only hope is that I had a strange and sharp pain today that lasted about 20 seconds but it was like a huge gas bubble or cramp on my left side and low. I am hoping by some miracle it is implantation. Wish I had more to report! Keep us posted too! 2 girls on another message board I am on got pregnant this month from IUI so it definitely happens! Good luck

Thank you so much! I am a bit worried as my tests aren't darkening but I go into today for a blood test then they check again Wednesday to make sure the amount is doubling... I will let you know. FX for a sticky bean for me.

I do hope it is a good omen for all you first time IUIers like myself!

Congratulations readyforbaby!! What fantastic news to start the new year!

I hope you ladies don't mind me joining your thread...a quick backgound on me, I have problem ovulating (after being on the pill for 10 years). I was on clomid 2 cycles, and just started Gonal-F this cycle, and will be doing IUI for the first time. DH did 2 spermy tests - first one was fine except for super low motility, second test showed great motility, but only 4% morphology! So we make a right pair! haha I'm not sure what our chances of success are, but with his spermys not great, I think the FS said today our chances were about 10%. We'll try for 3 cycles, and if it doesn't work, we'll have to move on to IVF. Fx'd it works!!

Smurfette - you must be testing soon??
