IUI

20 posts in this topic

I did a few rounds of IUI and IVF too but to no result. So i took up self-hormone tracking monthly. Within a year time, i slowly increased intake of tyroxine to push up my TSH to around 0.9 - 1.5. Guess what? After 5 years of trying everything and anything - IUI, Clomid, basal tracking, IVF, western medications, chinese medication, bomoh, adopting new religions, yoga, Rhoda Burne's law of atttraction theory, you named it - i finally conceived naturally!!!!! Yes, i mentioned 'naturally'. Exactly on the month my Thyroid Stimulation Hormone blood tests tested around 1.1

Unfortunately, that pregnancy was an ectopic. I had a laporoscopic surgery after doctor admitted me emergency to hospital. However, i didn't give up though i was depressed over the ectopic. So i immediately started tracking my TSH on the third months onwards, and slowly adjusting my level back to 0.9-1.5. True enough, nine months later, when my TSH level stabilized between 0.- - 1.5, i got pregnant naturally 2nd time!!!!!!

Most doctor, or even specialists would tell you your TSH is fine so long they don't exceed 6.0, but they are deadly wrong, because by the time your TSH peaked passed 3.0 you will start to feel sloggish, lack sexual drive, your cervical muscous drying up plus you'd be constipating and bloating like something died inside the stomach. How to have appetite for sex when one is feeling so depressing?? How are sperms to survive pass the cervix when the cervical mucous itself is all-time lacking fertility?? If you happen to be one of those lucky women who birth children like eating muffins, no one would need you to look macro into hormones tracking. But for unexplained susah pregnant women like us, we just need to go the extra miles to achieve pregnancy.

Good luck to you.

Hi Maggi, ykswong

Just to share. I had 3 iui before I had my baby girl, 4 yr. My 1st was unsuccessful 2nd was chemical pregnancy and beta was up to 56 iu. Doctor normally ask patient to do ivf after 2 failed iui, but for me I was advised to do 3rd iui because my age is below 35 and I had one chemical pregnancy. He said that with chemical pregnancy there is a high chance of another successful pregnancy. I m lucky my 3rd iui was successful.....and save cost

How old are u? Do you have any chemical pregnancy in your previous pregnancy. I understand that pregnancy after iui is low so better do ivf as advice by your doctor unless you are still young

Many babydust to all

I think so. I also had 6 cycles of clomid before my 2x iui and had waited too long, 7 years. I m happy for you and hope can be as lucky too. Metroivf is in klang, right? I m from Segamat and so I will be doing my ivf in johor. Klang is too far.

Are you planning for your 2nd. will it be iui or ivf?

yah loh. May be its also right to go straight to ivf. My doctor in muar also told me so. Once 40 will be very difficult to get pregnant.

I spoke to my cousin in klang and she told me metroivf is the most famous and successful ivf center in klang and had help a lot of people there got pregnant. You had one successful iui. So you are one of them. Haha

Wish you a lot of baby dust on your coming ivf

Hi scoopydoo,

I tried 3rd iui but din complete. My eggs were not growing and doctor added FSH injection and then my eggs grew too well and I got 6 matured eggs. Doctor said I had too many eggs and refused to do iui because risk of many pregnancy.

So I did normal S cycle. Also negative.

Waited 5 months and then did IVF in at metroivf last month. I am so surprise and happy to see 3 sacs, 2 with heart beating and one still without. Doctor said if next week scan also cannot see the third heart beating means I have twin. Twins also good.

Are you doing iui or ivf?

Hi duri,

Congrat! U r lucky to have pregnancy on your 2nd IUI.

I also had IUI X 3 and was blessed....... to be pregnant on my 3rd IUI. My baby girl is now 11 months.

I was given proluton injection wkly until 12 wks. Its supposed to prevent miscarriage. I was told after my UPT was pos that I still have a 20% chance of miscarriage. My pregnancy went on smoothly.

Its best for u is to follow your doctor's advice. Also don't stressed yourself too much physically and mentally. And at 12 wk, u can asked to do baby neck NT test to see your baby's ok or not. How old r u?

Happy pregnancy journey

Hi Duri,

Welcome.

U should be 12 wk now. Did u do neck NT test? U r not above 35 yr and so at low risk for down baby. If above 35, doctor will advised amnio test. I understand can also do another blood test at 15wk to check for risk. Its called triple test. Then at 20wk u can do another scan test called detail scan where doctor will scan your baby from head to toe to check for risk for down baby and also other abnormal baby.

Where r u checking your baby?
