My first IUI was a no go — The Bump
TTC after 35

My first IUI was a no go

Very bad news. Got my LH surge yesterday morning so scheduled my first IUI this morning after taking Clomid for 5 days. My husband gave his sample this morning. Went into the office and was told there was no sperm. It appears his body has adjusted to the dosage change with his testosterone medication. The only way this will ever happen is if he goes off the medication completely so it's back to the urologist for my husband. One step forward and two steps back. I've taken the afternoon off and am having a glass of wine! Why does it come so easy for some and others have to struggle so?

Re: My first IUI was a no go

  • Geez - I am so sorry. This TTC process is really tough, and it's especially hard when you've done all the right things and had it all planned out, to have something like this occur and change your plans completely.

    It sounds like you are doing something nice and relaxing for yourself which is good for you.  

    Take care of yourself while waiting for the urologist appointment. I hope that they can get your DH back on track quickly.

    It does come so easily for some - I had another friend get pregnant by accident at 38 the other day. I am on cycle 14. I hear your frustration.
