Hi everyone & happy Friday!!!
Well we have officially started our cycle for DIUI #1. Started Clomid yesterday and I go in next Sat for our first monitoring appointment. It seems there are quite a few of you with DE experience but I am hoping for any input on DIUI.
1. Did you get a BFP?
2. How many cycles did you do?
3. What Cryobank did you use?
4. Medicated or unmedicated cycles?
Just trying to pass some time and gain some hope! This is our last shot at achieving a pregnancy (RE said he'll give it up to 5 tries). I know I am getting ahead of myself but of course due to past disappointment I can't help but be afraid that this doesn't work! Our staff is hopeful but then again they were hopeful for our IVF...So just hoping for some info and success stories to keep me sane! TIA!!
