We just found out that our IUI #3 did not work. I was late this month and planning on testing today, and then BAM! It's like some cruel sick joke my body likes to play on me...wait till I get a little bit excited, but anyways.
This was my first cycle on Femara and the original plan was to take September off but we decided not to and keep going, especially since my Dr likes to try new drugs/procedures in groups of 3. They like the stats over 3 cycles compared to just one and then move on to the next thing.
So I wanted to ask you ladies what else you do during your IUI cycles? I'm on a prescription pre-natal right now, but is there anything else you all take? What about your husbands? Mine takes folic acid and zinc but I plan on researching what else he can take. (he has good everything but morphology is borderline...still considered good, but in the lower good range if that makes sense)
What about progesterone? And I also heard baby aspirin? I feel like there is so much out there that I get overwhelmed researching sometimes!
