On our way to IUI #1

AF showed this morning so we have now been through 24 cycles of TTC. Last week my new RE found what he believes to be the problem. He performed a post coital test and come to find out my cervical fluid is too acidic and killing the sperm once they come in contact with it. Other than that, my DH and I have been through so several tests, blood work, etc. all with normal results. As weird as it may sound, I'm happy we found something wrong and can move forward with IUI this cycle. I will go in on CD14 for an ultrasound to see when I will be ovulating and go from there. I am hoping this is the best way to bypass my cervix (since that is where the problem lies) and get those guys where they need to go!

    It is always a relief to know what is wrong, then you can do something to fix it.  Hope this IUI is the ticket for you!

    Good luck with your IUI. Are you checking with OPKs before day 14? My re has me use OPKs starting day 10/11 and if no positive I monitor day 14 with ultrasound. If positive I go in for ultrasound that day and blood work. This cycle I has a positive cd13 and did IUI day 14. If you monitor on day 14 you could miss it.

    This! 

    OP- are you taking any meds at all?  On my IUI + injects cycle, I had monitoring on CD 8 and the IUI on CD 11.  You might want to ask about earlier monitoring so you don't miss it!  I totally understand how it feels to understand what is wrong and be able to come up with a plan to fix it.  Good luck!
