Sneaking over from SAIF for advice (IUI and endo)

Has anyone here had success with endo (advanced) and an IUI?  I have excessive scar tissue and my RE said an IUI probably wouldn't help, but we need to exhaust all of our options because we are OOP and can't afford IVF.  Thanks!

Re: Sneaking over from SAIF for advice (IUI and endo)

  • I have a different dx, but had IUI success. I hope that someone on here can help!

    Good luck!

  • I have stage IV endo and currently see an endo specialist (uses excision) and he also specializes in infertility. I think it also depends where your endo is. For me, I have one blocked tube, my inside of my uterus is good, and I have had four endometriomas on my ovaries so with all them removed my poor ovaries aren't so good. Sperm are ok.

    And he said to do IUI + clomid to start. He said we want to move aggressivley because the endo can grow back pretty fast. Am thinking that IUI + injectables would be next depending how I respond (he doesn't think femara would be a good choice since it only produces one). 

    He seems to think it's possible to get pg this way, so here's hoping!! We are also 100% OOP. Good luck to you :)

  • I have stage III-IV endo and my RE was set to go Clomid & IUI until we got the SA results back.  I say go for it!

    Were your SA results good and that's why he didn't do it?  Cause when DH had his done 3 years ago, they were perfect.  We are waiting for his latest results today.

  • If SA had been good, we would have done IUI.  DH was low all around with a total pre-wash count of 1.5-3 million depending on the sample and 1/2 that post-wash.  We did IVF w/ ICSI in Oct/Nov, but it failed.

    How frustrating! I'm so sorry it didn't work. How was your first conceived?

  • She was our miracle baby that was not supposed to happen naturally :).  We were waiting on insurance for IF when I conceived her after 17 months of trying.
