  • I had success early on but sadly lost my first. It took 6 months for my body to heal enough to be ready for the IUI that stuck. The one that worked is the one I put my whole effort into, I even asked for the HCG shot to force ovulation. But I knew in my heart that a5 th IUI without anything different want going to work. Adding the shot (and going on vacation the next day) is what worked for me.
  • Got triplets from my 3rd IUI with Femara and Gonal-F. Only had 2 follicles tho.
