    After washing, your Husband sperm motility should improved greatly.

    Before washed 2.5ml, grade A 7%, B 25%, C 4%, after washed, left 0.5ml for 80% grade A and 20% grade B for iui

    I know if you have more than 4 big follicles they will ask u to proceed for ivf instead. It’s weird that you have 10 mature eggs and still let you do SO-IUI. What’s the size of your mature eggs?
    It must be really crampy for you but bear with it, your chances are very high!!

    hi, anyone seeing prof pc wong at NUH? i just switched doctor, was at KKH with Jessie Phoon and did SOIUI once in Jan 2018. And didn't want to continue as i was not emotionally well. Prof Wong advised that we do more rounds of IUI and he doesn't think we need so-iui or IVF for now. So-IUI is as cumbersome as IVF so he said might as well do IVF if we are gonna do SO-IUI. Anyone has any success stories doing IUI with Prof PC Wong so far? Love the nurses there.. they are all so kind and gentle.

    Hi Gemini why and how did u transfer to NUH? Did u go as private patient to see Prof Wong or u went to polyclinic to get referral?

    i went as private, so just called prof pc wong directly. went to prof pc wong cuz he seemed to have pretty good reviews and heard that hes a fertility expert. Jessie Phoon didn't really offer much solution and she wasn't even the one who did the procedure for me. i even tried TCM (acupuncture & drinking herbal stuff) with dr tan kian seng in clementi but i ended up with fever for a month and he didn't even know how to treat my fever. had pretty bad experience with his nurses also who openly shared when we should try etc. i was thoroughly embarrassed by them.

    Sigh. U know on Monday, they told me I got 7 eggs.
    They gave me a worried look which was making me stressed as also. They said they only need 3. So Tues I went back to scan.

    On Tuesday they said ok 9 eggs, 4 from left 5 from right ovary, about 7 to 13 in size. E group of MO made me felt rather worried n they suggested me to give up this round of iui or e other alternative was to proceed for IVF. So I say I need to discuss with husband n come back on Wednesday tgt as it's a diff set of consent forms to sign. Advised to stop jab.

    Wed was my 9th jab day. I overheard nurse was saying wow I got 10 eggs now, from 7 to 14.5 :/ but then this group of MO say cannot anyhow change to IVF... cos e drugs r different. N I dint jab e day b4, yet my eggs grew.

    So this MO say proceed for iui on Thursday.

    N today I went to o&g clinic for very bad cramps... Doc says its e Ohss... 1 week post iui n I'm still ovulating?? -.-

    Today is 11 dpo, i am having a very bloated stomach now, my bbt temperature today is 36.6, by today I feel cold since afternoon, and took measurement just now and got 36.2, losing hope currently.

    I don’t want to face reality to do the pregnancy test tomorrow.

    Hi Wynn, same here i dont want to face reality too. Either wait for period to visit or test once u have the courage

    What medi ur gynae gave u? Is this ur 2nd iui?
     
  15. WynnTay

    WynnTay New Member

    Duphaston x1 after every dinner

    Last night 3am, I got 36.2 too, but 8am my usual time for bbt got 36.6

    Praying for a 36.6 bbt result tomorrow morning

    Hmm I don’t tik it’s still ovulating, it’s more of the side effect of the drugs..so did the doc give u anything to reduce the cramps? Per my understanding for mature follicles have to be ard 17-24. If out of 10 eggs, mostly less than 14mm, it’s still not consider optimal. I have only 2 eggs at 17mm and 20mm, doc scan & continues to jab me another 2 days, results : 20mm and 21mm, then I see the smile on his face

    The nurses told me to either drink milk or eat 2-4 egg whites to reduce bloatedness and cramps. I ate 4 egg whites daily as i don’t take milk..not so bloated and crampy. Maybe partly bcos i have only 2 eggs. There again I don’t feel much symptoms nor feel any rise in body temp. Only mild headache and slight cramps on off. I can’t expect too much now but I tell myself at least I tried and no regrets in future.

    Started to feel cold in the afternoon, so when I came back from work at 9pm, I measure and got 36.2. Went out for dinner and had mutton soup, got 36.6 at around 11pm, before I sleep at 12am last night, I got 36.1, wake up by a phone call at 4am, and heart beat fast due to work and got 36.0, I went back to sleep after 30 min and turn off the aircon

    And 730am, my usual bbt chart measure at 36.71?? What is going on? I am still having bloating stomach and today it is 12 dpo.

    Yesterday, it was also the same, my bbt was only much higher at 730am, my usual temp time, and bbt will just drift lower

    So if transfer do U need to do all the test again? Or they will just proceed wit iui? As the tests are quite costly under private

    The whole week post iui I was experiencing very bad bloatedness...which means to me I can't wear my pants, n e sides of my lower ab can feel pain n possibly swelling.

    Tho MO told me something similar like more than 17 then it's of optimum size la. They also say some may burst if they r too big... Oh well. I just listen with a pinch of salt...

    But anyway I have been eating eggs daily... N finally today my bloat seems to be better, yay after 1week post iui... N the o&g clinic prescript me normal Panadol n nothing else. Lol so next time anywhere pain pls take normal panadol n don't waste ur money go to e urgent clinic ~ felt so silly lo.

    Hi Tirimisu183

    I’m also 36 this year :) for me, i’m trying natural cycle iui meaning wait for natural ovulation to take place, no medication just 1 trigger injection to make sure ovulation takes place and the iui procedure will be done.

    If this round fails, I will continue SO-IUI with the hormone pills & injections. Overall iui procedures are less taxing on our bodies & minds as compared to ivf.. so perhaps u might want to consider asking your gynae what is the best option for u?

    Hope this helps!

    On the day my AF was due, 14 dpo, I experience brown discharged, but AF came last night, after a delay of 2 days, sad

    Should I go for second cycle of iui immediately?
     
  25. Sandy.n

    Sandy.n Member


    Hi Wynn, i feel you too. My AF delayed 3days. Now abit lost, should be going for 2nd round of IUI.

    Let’s share our experience, during this cycle of failed iui, on 7 dpo, I felt my womb was very cold, like menses coming the next day, so I cooked pork rib soup to make it warm, it did become warmer for a few days and the dip happened a few days later

    Attached is my bbt chart, iui done on 13th day of the cycle, ovulation strip the darkest on 14th day

    So the more iui we do, the more chance we have? Any scientific research?

    My iui failed, went back to book a second iui, and doctor recommend my Husband to do a more complete and detailed sperm test that cost $500+.

    Hi. I am a new member here. I had an iui last month and it failed. Before we did the iui, the gyne asked me if i did an hsg before. I said yes but that was 4 years ago. After the iui we did an hsg and he said that my tubes were blocked and there are mucus. Do you guys think he should have done the hsg first? He is a private doctor and i have spent a lot already with the first iui. I am so down and frustrated now.

    Hi Mum725,

    Not too sure why your doctor forgo the HSG scan before your IUI. Did you check with him? I did a HSG scan 2 yrs ago when i had a endometriosis op. Recently went for my fertility check as i'm ttc this year. My doctor scheduled me for a HSG scan again to see if any of my tubes are block before going back for another round of consultation.

    Mum725 New Member

    I am so sad as I felt that the iui was a waste of time, money and emotions. I think I already spent about 6k for the iui and lab tests. I have been TTC for 8 years already. I did not talk to him yet about this because I don't want to sound like I am complaining.

    Hi mum725,

    Recommend you go KKH or NUH for details check before start the iui or ivf.
    The cost would be cheaper and can pay via medisave.
    If u are consider IVF, there is subsidiary as well from govt.

    For HSG test,is that result okay for 4 years ago? Just this time HSG checking have blocked tube problem? If blocked tube for one side only, mean still able to conceive naturally.

    Be more positive, as luck will coming.

    Catherine1211 New Member

    Actually only registration fee need to pay by cash which is $133.75. We decided to pay all by cash in case I need to go for IVF. I didn’t bingo.
    My next Doc review will be May 2019. Then decide whether go for 2nd so iui or ivf.

    Me too =/

    But i thinking upgrade see Dr TanHh. N i still thinking if to go ivf straight or not. I felt me under subsidized clinic, e MOs seems like clueless n sometimes dunno what to do... imagine they called consultant to ask,how u feel at that instance...
     
  37. Catherine1211

    Catherine1211 New Member

    Initially I wanted to go in
    If upgrade to see Dr TanHh, will it also need to wait for very long to see him.

    I did encountered doc said she confirmed with her boss when she suggest to me to do so iui first instead of ivf.

    My case being subsidised patient, I was only offered iui first. The MO said if fail then we will discuss about ivf...

    Anyway. My colleague who met him says long wait too. Even as pte patient there’s tons of ppl waiting to see him, and the norm was about 1 hour. N sometimes he need to go off during clinic hours for some emergencies...

    Which type of iui - natural or SO-iui u did? I did natural iui and when it failed, the next cycle ovulation is still quite the usual timing. If it’s SO-iui, maybe is the hormonal adjustments?

    Hi.. I’m seeing Dr THH as private and might be starting my ivf cycle in June. I haven’t decide whether to really kickstart this ivf journey cos it’s like quite stressful :(
    I tried twice natural iui and failed.. thinking should try so-iui before embarking on ivf.
     
  43. Sandy.n

    Sandy.n Member

    Normal IUI.. Quite usual but still ovulating for that month?
     
  44. Catherine1211

    Catherine1211 New Member

    I think wasn’t offered iui because previously I already given few cycles of clomid with high dosage by private gynae. She was the one who told me to go public hospital to go towards ivf path.

    Omg. It might be even longer than 1hrs. I might not have enough annual leave.
