Trouble TTC

How many IUI's before IVF?

We've done two Clomid cycles without IUI and two with IUI.  I know two IUI's isn't that many but I am so ready to move on to IVF. I just don't believe that IUI is going to work for us.  How many cycles have people done before moving on to IVF.  I am thinking one more... is 3 too few?

    I suggest trying injects/IUI before moving to IVF - injects have slightly higher success rates than clomid, good luck.
    Me: 32, DH: 34.
    Trying since Jan 2011. Unexplained IF.
    2 IUIs = BFN.
    1 IVF (Dec 2013) = BFN.
    FET, 2 frosties (June 13, 2014)

    14dp5dt-June 27 -BFP, beta 2061. 2nd beta >5000, 3rd beta >5000, 2 sacs 06/30.
    2 Heartbeats, HCG increasing as should..
  • I'll be doing 3, or at the most 4 IUIs before we switch to another option.

  • I plan to do 3 IUI's. My RE recommends 3 before regrouping to make a new plan. I am not sure if that means switching to injects or to IVF. I have read if you haven't become pregnant after 6 that your chance of success is diminished.
  • My Re's plan is to do 3 before moving to Ivf. Hopfully the first one in July works, but it seems it never works on the first try!

  • After my 4th IUI my dr discussed IVF but we decided to try one more IUI with injects first. I think it is a decision between you your husband and doctor about what the correct next step is for you.

  • My insurance required 3 IUI's before covering one IVF. (Remember after age 40 there is no coverage.) Talk to your dr though about your specific diagnosis. Think also about a lifetime use of clomid being only for 6 cycles and with strict monitoring so it doesn't thin your lining and create other issues. Good luck!

    Like others have said, it depends on your diagnosis.  We are MFI.  He was going to do a couple natural IUIs, then a couple medicated IUIs before moving to IVF.  However, that all depended on his post-wash counts. 

    When we are ready to go back to the RE in a couple months, I'm going to suggest skipping the natural IUIs and trying a lightly medicated IUI to hopefully increase our chances.  We will probably do three before moving on.

    This.  We only did two due to MFI, but my RE said he always likes to do an injects IUI before moving on to IVF as it also gives him a good idea of how you are going to respond to injects before going all in with IVF so that he can best anticipate the right protocol and starting doses for you.  I don't think it is coincidental that he has the lowest IVF cycle cancellation rate in a 10+ RE practice!

    I start my first round of clomid on Saturday too! My doc is combining clomid with injectables and IUI. Again its probably based on your specific problems as other ladies have said. My problem is that my eggs don't mature before ovulation so DH's little swimmers can't fertilize them. Im hoping that this treatment works out. I wish you all the best of luck and plenty of baby dust! Lets go July...ladies lookin' for a BFP!
  • My RE said 2 or 3 IUI attempts.  We are dealing with MFI.  However, I'm not sure if I could should call it "mild MFI" because even though his morph is low, his count and motility are pretty high...count at 75 mil and mot at 60%.  We will probably do the 3 attempts.

  • Our RE recommended that we do 3 rounds of IUI before moving to IVF.....but he said that we can do as many as we want. We are on our 3rd now, but if it works, it sure is a lot less money then IVF.

    We are using Femara and consistently have at least 2 follies each time.  Our RE said that using injectables wouldn't help our odds enough considering it's an extra $800 per month.  Since we have 2 follies every time, adding injectables would just mean that that we might have 1 or 2 more....but that is just a maybe.  So if we can be on meds that cost $9 a month and still produce 2 follies each time, then no need for injectables.

  • With our mild MFI and my LPD my RE recommended doing four IUIs because he said 80% of people that are candidates for IUI (ie can be brought fully to ovulation and have enough sperm for IUI) get PG within the first four.  And those 20% that don't get PG in that first four don't seem to have better chances by doing more.  

    That said, we did land in that percentage since we got PG on our fourth IUI but had a c/p m/c.  So instead of moving on to IVF after our fourth he said he was fine with continuing a few more IUIs since we'd shown that everything happened as it was supposed to (sperm met egg, I was able to implant, etc) but that I just came down on the side of the odds for my age of 35, that 30% of pregnancies will end in m/c.  We finished our fifth IUI a few weeks ago and agreed that while we could do another one or two, we'd rather move on to IVF due to success rate and money concerns.

    With our mild MFI and my LPD my RE recommended doing four IUIs because he said 80% of people that are candidates for IUI (ie can be brought fully to ovulation and have enough sperm for IUI) get PG within the first four.  And those 20% that don't get PG in that first four don't seem to have better chances by doing more.  


    We were lucky on IUI # 4....twice but unlucky in that they didn't stick.  Since we got a bfp on a IUI cycle, we knew we could connect and implant so we were willing to go more.  We have done a total of 8 IUIs but hopefully we are moving on to IVF after my next AF.

  • My RE reccomends 3 IUI's and then IVF. I would say whatever your insurance will cover if you're not 100% OOP. We are doing 3 then looking into IVF, I will discuss another IUI with injects.

  • We're jumping straight into injects. Since we're unexplained, my RE doesn't see any point in wasting time and money on lesser treatments when there are certain barriers that "could be" the issue. He recommends 3 before moving on, but I think we'd try one extra, then talk about IVF. I'm praying we don't have to go there.
