IUI Question — The Bump
Secondary IF

IUI Question

so we are experiencing secondary unexplained infertility....I'm currently in the TWW after IUI #2. Does anyone have any stats on if having conceived naturally the first time around would the chances be higher for an IUI to work?

Re: IUI Question

  • It all depends on what ends up being the cause of your IF. IUIs give you a better possibility than conceiving naturally, but it might not. What tests have they done to determine the cause of your 2IF?

    Kid #1 - 09/03/12
    Kid #2 - maybe???
    Diagnosed with Severe Ashermans 
    Hysteroscopy #10 - scar tissue grew back reblocking my right tube
    #11 or IVF with scarring still inside?
    1 lone embryo from September 2016 retreival, dx with Trisomy 16, starting fresh
  • I'm unexplained...both of us are all good  :#

  • Yes, I understand you are unexplained. What I was trying to say, is there is always a reason, they just haven't found it yet. So...not sure your IUI increases or keeps your odds the same. 

    This whole process sucks and I hope IUI works for you.
