I did it backwards - IUI question

Soooo, I'm converting an IVF cycle to IUI. I never did IUI, so this is all a little bit confusing. But the most important question is:

Can I have a drink now??? :D

  • LOL! Seems like that's a yes? This may seem like a stupid question, but I don't even know if IUI ladies usually avoid alcohol during IUI! They tell you not to drink during IVF.....

    My RE didn't say anything about not drinking. I'm not drinking to the point of intoxication but for real if I had to be sober for this shit I would lose my mind. I'm enjoying my second glass of red wine now! Drink until it's pink but everything in moderation?

  • My RE didn't say anything about the 2WW but not to drink during injections. I'm riding in a Mardi Gras parade Saturday, I'm triggering in the morning. They lock us on the float at 10am and we get off usually at 6pm. I'm normally so drunk I have to be carried off. This year I'm allowing myself 2 glasses of wine the whole day and I'm saying NO to all the Jell-O shots.

    I LOVE my red wine, I just think it's all about moderation. Red wine is so good for you anyway.
    Fucking bump!!!!

  • My doctor didn't say anything to me about alcohol intake. I think you deserve it and 2 glasses of wine is better for you than a Xanax!
