Hi Mulligan, I have done both IUI (4 times) & IVF ICSI (1 time). All BFN. My 2 cents is very similar to everyone else's- There is no reason why you can't go from IVF to IUI.

Dexter & Gori, Your point is well taken, and I don't mean for my comments to sound negative. I've just seen this on many message boards, and from people in general.

One Failed IVF - but now how to afford adoption?

What in the world are people supposed to do? I c...
