Then these veginal insert should be the progesterone which supposed to help in lining..
U can have some red bean soup which also helps in lining..
My lining was 11mm and follicles at 20mm,17mm before trigger shot, but still did not succeed.
Ok will try red bean. Thanks for sharing!

Don’t give up too! The tww is already killing me though it’s only been 3dpiui. But nothing compared to a few months back where I thought I was going to go into depression. Been trying for almost a year and every failure (or even the thought of failure) started to make me cry. It really affected my sleep and appetite. Must have really driven my hubby nuts but he’s been most supportive. It also helps to be in forums like this.

Been trying to keep busy since. Reading, binge tving, cooking and meal planning all helps a little. Let’s jiayou !
 
Does progestron pills delay menses?

I am on Day 16, negative HPTs, no sign of period or spotting as of now...IUI was 16 days ago, did not take any HCG shot this time around

Last IUI, i started spotting on 12 DPIUI

This time around, lots of cramps and white discharge which could be due to progestron...i have actually reduced the progestron pill to 1 pill a day and skipped some days hoping this is not delaying my period if im not pregnant...

Hi, had my iui done on the 26th September 2019 and finally i have got the courage to check yesterday. i got a positive hpt.

Rest more and dont think too much everyone. Baby dust to all of you.
 
Well mine confirm no...just waiting for period to start, otherwise need some meds to induce that...
All these attempts with letrozole, clomid, gonal F and menopur resulted in nothing but a messed up cycle now...feel like just giving up this entire thing since ive wasted tons of $$$ and time the past 5 months for nothing...

I have tried SO-IUI twice but failed. The doc suspect there is something wrong with my egg quality becos the eggs react to the medications poorer than expected.

First iui- I was given letrozole for 5 days. After scanning, there is not much growth in follicles. So I was given gonal-f jab for another few days and one follicle grew ideally. So ended up doing 1 follicle

2nd iui- I was given gonal-f injection 100 units and 75 units alternate days. 2 follicles grew ideally.

Both Iui, husband sperms quality are within standards.

Is there any way to improve egg quality? I read an article tat egg quality cannot be improved.

Is there anyone facing the same issue? For my age 29, I should have 75% normal follicles. Hence, it is really weird why I have this issue.

Hello everyone!

I am new to this forum! Just wanted to check - anyone of you heard of Dr Ben Neo whose clinic is in Novena? Is he good/recommended for SO-IUI? Also, how about Dr Joycelyn Wong from ACJ Clinic?

Thank you!!

I’m 8dpiui now. Anyone has had yellow/brown discharge after IUI? I’ve had it on and off for a couple of days (like once or twice a day). Also tingling / pulling pricks of pain below my belly button area. I thought it’s infection but just called my doc he says usually infections are accompanied by fever, foul smelling discharge and itching, which I don’t have. I feel constantly bloated tho, like the air in my tummy kinda sits on my uterus (?).
Anyone has the same experience post IUI?

Hi all,

I am 41 years old. My Dr recommened me to do IVF due to my age and having low ovarian reserve. However, I want to do SO IUI first and therefore my Dr allowed me try once. I had done my procedure in October but unfortunately my AF comes on 13 dpiui. Spotting start on 12 dpiui. Today 14 dpiui I went to do blood test though AF comes already. The nurse said sometimes people still pregnant even mensus come. So it is mandatory to do blood test. Anyhow I already prepare the result to the worst. Tomorrow shall see Dr to discuss the next plan. I feel sad and under depress why people get pregnant so easy at my age and why not me :(

Dont think IVF is that bad apart from the cost issue... I have not tried it but will be doing so this month once I get my menses...

I am 30, no issues with reserve and ovulating every month...Did hormone checks, HSG and so on, all clear...Husband is 33 with no issues (was low of motility though that has increased in the past 2 months, almost doubled)...failed 2X medicated cycles, 2 SO-IUI and now moving on to IVF...

I have friends who are 34/35 who have no issues getting pregnant within 2 months of trying...

While it is something natural, some of us just lack the luck and need additional help...

I just count myself lucky since I can still afford both the financial and emotional value of all the treatments for now...

Your friends tried 2 IVF? If so, have to spend $30k for both cycles.
The successful rate of IVF for 30 years of age is very high. For my case my hubby has 2% morphology only, plus my low ovarian reserve issue, the chance to succeed is quite low. The ivf cost is 15k to 20k. I am very afraid if it failed, I do not know how much can I take it and how cycles of IVF we can afford. Sometimes I felt I am very useless. Everytime think what went wrong with my body. Why I couldn't conceive? I am very afraid I may end up for adoption.

Anonymousjane, wish you will succeed in your ivf. Do share with us your journey of IVF. For me, I am still thinking my next plan, whether is soiui / ivf.

No i tried 2 SO-IUI...yet to start my first IVF

Dont think lowly of yourself. Everyone of us have different ups and downs. Maybe we are lucky in something else...

I used to be so afraid of failure but now I am just planning ahead for a few rounds if it fails. I am going with JB option given the cost which is 1/3rd of Sg. You can also do PGS over there which may increase the success rate.

Worse case if it comes to a point we have exhausted our financial means, will just save up again for a few months and try again. At some point, it might work? :)

I used to have plan to do the procedure in jb, but it would be very troublesome if you don't have own transport, right? Without self drive car, how do you transport up down jb and SG especially when frequent visit is needed for scannings like ivf.

Well the train is d best and fastest option.
Less queue in immigration, 5 minutes and you are in JB. Grab is plenty and cheap in JB

Based on my consultation with a centre in JB, you need 4-5 visits till retrieval. I bought my train tickets in advance for two and fro...it cost less than $15 for 2 pax two ways.
 
It is pretty much like SO IUI, with maybe 2 extra visits and retrieval...i am taking half day for the normal visits and might stay overnight in a hotel after retrieval.

Wow... does your company accept hospitalisation leave issued by Msia?

Also, which hospital do you go to? How much is their ivf cost?

I may opt for it when I have tight financial issue.

I will be starting my first SO IUI at KKH this mth, estimated next week according to past menses dates. I’m on Puregon protocol.

May I know for those on this protocol previously, around which cycle day is the IUI procedure?

My menstrual cycle is usually 37 days long. Will IUI follow the usual ovulation date or will it be earlier than normal ovulation date? Thanks in advance.

My experience, it is always earlier than normal unmedicated ovulation date...

Hi ladies,

Just thought to give everyone some update to you guys. So in my earlier post a few months back I told my story of having my first son via iui , with A natural Mc last year. then trying second one via iui again this year. I did 3 iui and failed and went on the forth time. Thinking I would failed once again as I m not getting any symptoms like my first pregnancy instead all the symptoms I got was the same as my first 3 failed iui ( just like pre Menses symptom). I even told my husband that this is the last try and If no result then we are just fated to have one kid and not opting for ivf or so. But I SUCCEDED! :)

The only thing I did different was that in all my previous iui I would have taken a day Medical Leave to rest my body on the day of iui but on this succeeded try, I decided to just take it as a normal day and head back office to work so I keep my mind away from thinking on my iui that I just done. Not sure if it helps as it didn’t stress me as much mentally on that day itself.


So good luck to you ladies here, I m 18w2d now!

Hi all! I am 35 and have been TTC-ing for 3 years. I have PCOS, only 1 ovary and cleared HSG for the other ovary, taking euthyrox for hypothyroid to achieve ideal range. Hubby’s SA is normal good, just that his morphology is 2% which has nothing to worry about.
We went to JB to do SO IUI last month but did not do IUI as Dr says my egg quality is lousy so we aborted IUI. This month I am in the midst of preparing my ovary to grow follicles. I was given 100mg clomid on 2-6 DP and menopur 75IU jab on 8-10DP. I am scheduled to go back this Friday which is DP12 to check on my follicle size.
May I ask if 8mm follicle size on DP8 is normal given that I took clomid?
I am currently quite worried about the size of my follicle this coming Friday. Anyway has experience with regards to what is next if my follicle still does not grow on DP12?
