IUI fourth try tomorrow

Postby jan33 » Sat Feb 04, 2006 9:09 am

Hi..I'm new to the site, and been reading through some of the messages...I was feeling supported even before I signed up!
About me...please excuse 'cause I can't remember all the short forms yet!
I'm soon to be 33, DH 39, married almost 13 yrs (we started early!). We found out about 10 yrs ago that we were infertile...male factor...no sperm at all...nothing in history to indicate why. Devastating. We were still young, establishing careers, etc, so just decided maybe we'd never have kids.
Then, the neices, nephews, started coming on both sides, and...long story short, the biological clock started ticking (LOUD!) about 2 yrs ago.
I'm Ok, so we're using donor IUI. We've had 3 tries so far with no luck. OV test was positive this morn, so go tomorrow for 4th try...
It's such a roller coaster...yrs ago when we first started trying, I'd convince myself I was preg, take test, negative. Went though this numerous times, then when we found out we were infertile...crushed! Got over it (I thought) and accepted it would never happen 'naturally', so I'd never get my hopes up again.
Now...I'm right back there. Thinking about it all the time, sneaking peeks at the baby section in the stores...getting disappointed every month!
I'm keeping my fingers crossed this time...we're not sure what to do if no success....how long should we try? Financial is a concern, but so is age...
Hopefully tomorrow will be my lucky day! Keeping my fingers crossed....

You sound like us, reading your post....
We have had 3 iui's now, using donor. it's upsetting I know as like me, I have no issues, so why 3 failed attemps???

We are taking time out right now, as stress was high, so we are moving house sorting our jobs out then onc settled will try either iui, or ivf???

Not sure which yet, consultation in march to dissuss then, whats better, so later I could be doing 4th iui, or 1st ivf......

I wish u all the best, 2moro. Fingers crossed for ya.

Don't give up

When the home pregnancy tests all read + you'll be glad you paid the money. Keep trying and give it time. 20,000,000-100,000,000 + to one odds eventually work in your favor.

Be patient.
