I have ready a lot of mixed posts about how long after ovidrel they get IUI and whether they have one IUI or back to back IUIs.
For example, at RMA in NYC I had 2 failed IUI/Clomid cycles.
There policy is that you go in for your day 12 scan between 7-8:30 to check your follicles, and if you are ready they will give you the ovidrel in the office. Husband goes in early the next morning and IUI is at around 9-10 am. They only do one IUI. They claim, the husbands sperm count needs time to build back up, and it's a waste, but I hear of so many people doing it, 2 people I personally know had success.
So my new doctor does 2 IUIs. One at 36 hours after ovidrel and a second at 48 hours. My husband also has a very large sperm count.
I have read about people having the IUI's 36-48 hours after ovidrel and what I had was about 24 hours after. I know they say sperm can live in you for up to a few days, but I also heard their vitality once washed for iui is much lower maybe only 12-24 hrs.
I would love to hear BFN and BFP stories from people on the timing after IUI
and whether or not they had a single iui or back to back. I know there are so many other factors, but am just curious on these specific factors.
I would like to know too. My clinic does 2 back to back IUI's. One 24 hours after the ovidrel and the other one 48 hours after the ovidrel. I'm not sure if this sounds right or not. I always thought it would be 12 and 36 hours later. I'm also afraid of ovulating before the IUI.
My doc's office would only do back to back IUIs if the sperm count was low. I was both scanned and had blood tests drawn to see if I was about to ovulate, trigger shot and then 36 hours was when my appt was.
First IUI was 100mg Clomid, 10,000 trigger, 2 follies, 65 million sperm post wash. Failed
Took a break for 3 months while we got our house ready to be put up for sale and pack up a lot of the house.
Round 2 IUI. 150mg Clomid, 10,000 trigger, 4-5 follies, 35 million post wash. Success.
I have infertility due to 2 LEEPs I had so the scar tissue is too much for the lil guys, and it also removed a lot of my CM glands. I also have PCOS w/o insulin resistance, which causes my LP defect (low progesterone).
Clomid was the thing that seemed to work. Upped the dosage and I got bigger, better and more eggs. And had less sperm this time around. But everyone is different.. Good luck to you
