I am about to embark down the IUI road. I need to get all the information possible, please. I will be paying out of pocket, there is no insurance, unfortunately .
Please enlighten me as to everything I will be facing as far as costs, the steps, medication. Etc.....

I will be so grateful....

Hi Marlene
I wish you the best on your IUI journey. As far as the costs are concerned, every place is different. I know that my clinic was $2000 for the procedure. I've heard of other clinics being less expensive also. The medication protocol you are on will determine the costs associated with the medications. I know the cost can be very overwhelming but just think of what you hopefully get in return :D

All the best!

Hi! I have done 4 IUI's. Don't let my 4 times make you nervous. There are lots of women that it has worked for them the first time. It's always a good place to start. As far as cost...it depends on the clinic. Mine were about $2000. I didn't do meds at all with 2 of them....they were natural cycle. The other 2 were IVF cycles that were cancelled and we did IUI's because I had only produced one egg.

An IUI is no big deal. It's like a normal pap....maybe a little uncomfortable....but quick. I'm sure that your RE will tell you, but be sure to have intercourse the next couple of days after....just to be sure.

Good luck! I hope it works for you! :D
