Well, went for monitoring today-it's official. We are no longer doing an IVF cycle, we have been converted to IUI due to not the response RE was looking for. We will have IUI on Thursday and then again on Friday. Can someone please explain to me where they put the sperm, and how is it better than TI? IUI stands for intrauterine insemination right? Aren't eggs released from ovaries and take days to swim down into uterus? Not understanding completely, as I've never had this before.
I'm having a really sucky day today. Don't feel very confident about this cycle and I'm feeling very down in the dumps about this change in plans. Also, feel like RE doesn't ask about my input into things. Have changed REs multiple times this year, and not sure where to go from here. Just want a RE who understands and respects that we want to cycle-but, only with my eggs and DH sperm. Not interested in donor eggs or donor embryos. Why do REs hate to cycle older women? Feel like their success rates are more important than what we've said that we want as a couple. Anyone else getting these vibes?
