Hi all, looking for IUI-cycle buddy! I did my IUI at SGH on 5 November, and looking for TWW-buddy!
Hi. Who's your doctor?
I'm currently not seeing SGH, so can't be Tww-buddy, but I can still be SGH-buddy. I went to Sgh for ivf last year twice. This year, nope. I'm planning for next year

Hi everyone, need some enlightening. Going for my first iui at KKH as i have high AMH, all other tests for both hubby and myself are good except my AMH level as such i don't usually ovulate. Letrozole did make me ovulate so dr has prescribed me letrozole again before my iui. Just wanted an understanding to know what are my chances of having a successful iui.
 
Hi everyone need some advice I’m really confused with my iui in kkh. So they asked me to test for LH using urine strip and it’s not really positive on fri ( the line is fainter than the control line) then they asked me to come back on sat for another scan. This time round my LH test is more faint than fri so should be negative and I was worried could fri be the positive but after the scan they mentioned follicles are still growing and the biggest one is 20 and lining ready already. So the doc told me I need to do iui immediately on the day itself (sat). And I’m not sure why the paper put my LH as positive even though it’s negative and the doc say because I have two lines she will considered it as positive even though it’s fainter or faint than the control line. So I had my trigger shot + iui done 2 hours after on the same day. I’m confused she say my ovulation is likely to be tml which they are closed and my follicles + lining + LH is positive. The only doubt I have is the LH test which is so hard to determine worst still sat is fainter than fri making me think that I have ovulated. Anybody in the same shoes? Got people do iui early before ovulation? Cos i uds that once trigger u will only ovulate 36 hours later I did ask if I can do iui on mon but the doc mention I will miss the boat if I do on mon. Why they can’t give me blocker shot on sat and prolong to mon?

I also thought IUI pointless.

But first time if not too old below 35 they usually ask you try. Easier and cheaper.

To my surprise , success after first try. Now got a toddler running around

Hi looking at your progress, it looks like the optimal day is Sun/Mon. But kkh is closed that day.. I think it's okay to do it earlier bcos sperm can live up to 5 days in a women's body. I had my iui insemination done on 7th Dec. On 3rd dec my 2 biggest follicles are 20mm and 15.5mm. Doctors wanted me to have more than 2 follicles, so I continued with puregon & blocker. My trigger was 5th dec. 6th dec was just chill, no puregon. My iui was done on 7th dec.

Wow so good yea I have other follicles but the size is 14mm and so I think only got two follicles ar the right size even thought doc wanted 7. U done yours at kkh too? They didn’t give me blocker on sat and sun to wait for iui on mon they say it will be too late. Do u have any symptoms right now

Yep kkh. 2 follicles is good! :) Don't think you can proceed with iui with 7 follicles.. will have to cancel the whole iui/ convert to ivf. I only had 1 follicle for my 1st iui, this is my 2nd. Doctors were aiming for 3 follicles for me actually. But the 3rd one is growing too slowly.. so far no symptoms. How about you?

Hi All, I'm new to the IUI process too, just had my appointment with Dr after the 5 days of puregon injections. Dr did a scan and said the eggs are growing quite slow. He prescribe me with more medicines and will review again in 3 days time. Just curious, is it pretty common to initially have the eggs growing slow and does anyone have the same experience before?

Hi Mul, yes it does take time to grow. Expected follicle size during CD 13-15 is about 17-22cm. So dont worry, just relax. I did alot of remedy like eating sunflower seeds, Salmon, Pomegranate and etc. Not sure how much they help but no harm also. I m also in the midst of my procedure. All the best to you dear

You're most welcome! I think we need all the positivity at this point. Remember don't overthink and over expect. Sending you tons of positive energy, wish you the best. Take care

Hihi thanks all :) I ate 2 brazil nuts tgt with folic acid and progesterone pills first thing every morning (while I prep breakfast). I included pomegranates and avocados in my breakfast on alternate days. I love carbs so I can't completely cut off. I cut off about 50%, replacing it with wholemeal bread/ brown rice/ brown pasta. I think positivity is very important... I ate a lot of sashimi, raw oysters and even raw crabs (which I heard I'm not supposed to eat too much) during my tww to "compensate" my mental health for going through so many injections and trips to do scans..... Hope all of you succeed in time! <3

Niceeee, and it all has paid off and i m very happy for you. Pomegranate is a very good fruit to have actually. Good choices of food options you had. I had the almost similar but not having too much expectations so lets just hope for the best.

I experienced light tugging at the left side of my cervix one night (which was where my 2 dominant follicles are located), but I told myself to not overthink. I didn’t have any cramps but I had spotting (brown discharge) at the end of my tww which led me to think that my menses is coming..

Because it's day 14th for me and last Sunday i had some small spottings and Monday and today (tuesday) i m having like dark brown period like but this is not how my normal AF is because this kind of dark discharge is only on my last day of period. I did a home test in the evening it was Negative. I m lost

My spotting was brown discharge. It’s not heavy flow, but also not considered light. Somewhat in the middle. It stopped after abt 3 days where I increased progesterone dosage to thrice a day. When is your blood test with the doc? I think blood test is the most accurate..

Hi everyone I did my first IUI today at NUH so here's the start of my tww. Any recommendations on things to do to allow implantation to happen smoothly? Also my doc didn't prescribe progesterone which seems commonly prescribed in iui but I forgot to ask why :(
