Anything else you would have wanted to know before you started this process:
I FEEL THAT IUI WAS A WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY. WE HAVE TO PAY OUT OF POCKET FOR EVERYTHING, SINCE OUR INSURANCE DOES NOT COVER A DIME. IUI COST ABOUT $2000 EACH. ALSO, I SPOTTED BRIGHT RED BLOOD EVERY OTHER DAY STARTING 8 DAYS POST TRANSFER. DOCTOR SAYS ITS NORMAL. I WOULD USE AN EXTRA SUPPOSITORY TO STOP THE BLEEDING. THEN 2 DAYS LATER, IT WILL BLEED AGAIN, THEN USE EXTRA SUPPOSITORY. DOCTOR SAYS IT OK TO USE AN EXTRA ONE HERE AND THERE, BUT IT SHOULDN'T MATTER. I JUST FREAK OUT EVERY TIME I SEE BLOOD. THE ENDOMETRIUM SUPPOSITORY LEAKS OUT ALL THE TIME AND I FEEL THAT IT DOESNT GET ABSORBED ENOUGH.
