We are looking at IUI for January or February. My husband is in the military and may be deployed any day. We are freezing some sperm to do IUI on the 19th December. If my husband doesn't get deployed then we will look at IUI in a few months. Good luck to you.

This is my first post ever actually, but I am also supposed to get an IUI for now/January! Also my first cycle on femara.... but it looks like I am taking a couple days longer to get a positive OPK this cycle ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ .

If it's not too late I'd love to be your buddy I hope this month works and you can avoid that IVF!

We have unexplained, except my husband has a morphology issue and our RE doesn't think its responsible because his count is high to compensate.

Anyways, I have an ultrasound scheduled Sunday to look for fibroids/polyps, if I don't ovulate by then they will see whats happening (I ovulate on my own though). I am hoping to convince them to trigger if I have not a positive OPK by then.

This post is kind of rambling, but I guess I'm just excited to finally be posting instead of just googling! haha

Hello all! Thank you for following this post, sorry I haven't been on in a while. Good luck to you reginald, I'm praying for your sticky bean!

Swimming, sounds like you're in the same boat i am! I would love to be buddies! Took my first OPK this morning, and am scheduled for ultrasound/bloodwork for tuesday if nothing by then. I really hope you get a positive soon, good luck on your ultrasound today!

In regards to the OPK, it says to test after 11am (first urine not the greatest blah blah) but We have a 45 minute drive just to get to the clinic and the process of washing and inseminating can take two hours which means we're gonna be gone for about 4 and that leaves no notice for my day job so I need to be testing at like 6 am! Do you think I will get the same results as if testing later?

CONGRATULATIONS Sarah! I am so excited for you!

Hi mrsbertrand.... i asked the clinic what kind of washing they will do because one of the methods takes only 45 mins so i think it might help if you confirmed details with your clinic before going.
also, i had to travel by train for the iui so i took the clearblue digital opks, since they can be tested with fmu. not sure if you know how they work, but you can test for a longer window, and once i knew my time was approaching, i took the test morning and late afternoon to make sure i can plan. it turned positive one afternoon and the clinic said the best time is next day afternoon or evening (unless you are getting 2 iuis in one cycle, 36 hours is what many clinics aim for). then i could plan to travel early the next morning, dh went to the clinic before me so they could wash and be ready when i arrived. idk about the outcome yet so this doesnt have to be the best way to do it, but hopefully it helps you plan better. you are only 40 mins away so actually once you know when to go dh can go before and deposit and you can leave your job for a shorted time if you cant get time off.
i was really worried about the actual planning etc rather than the procedire itself, but it all went smoothly as im sure it will for you. fx and lots of to you.... keep us updated and hope this is your lucky month

Thank you Reg! All very good suggestions, hard to accomplish with only one vehicle though. Took my OPK first thing this morning, Seems positive for a surge. Will hear this afternoon about blood work and whether or not i need to take ovidrel. went for blood work and ultrasound, Two follicles over 2, with possibility of multiples. IUI scheduled for tomorrow!
