Do you have any health issues? I personally find IUI a waste of time and money and would go straight to IVF. But it also depends on how old you are. If time is not a factor then yes, do try IUI first.Hi , I’m TTC and isn’t successful for the longest time . Gyne suggested IUi . Very taboo topic amidst my peers so hoping to get some insights here .
I just started my first iui cycle. Decided to do this first before resorting to ivf as I don’t think i’ll be able to go through all the injections before I fall apart mentally.Hi , I’m TTC and isn’t successful for the longest time .

But everyone has a different reason behind why they have been unsuccessful when ttc. So i’m not sure if our opinions matter as much.
If you are able to bd comfortably but yet still unsuccessful, then maybe ivf is more suitable.
Best to investigate root cause.
In that case, should try IUI first since you are young. If time is a factor I'd suggest IVF but in this case, it's not.Full blood test done , no existing health issue . I’m gg 30 this year .
I'm doing at Mount E Dr Teoh SH Clinic , he's the doctor that deliver me ! Very passionate and fatherly figure doctor . Gentle during test. Going for a review next week due to low SA resultshave been trying for 4 months too.. been taking blackmores conceive well 4 months as well.
may i know where you guys go for the gynae checkup? and how to start the iui process? my period used to be irregular when i was in my teens but i started taking evening primrose oil in my 20s and it became more regular (+/- 1 week)
Any updates?I be done my full check with gyne , no prob till date . Still waiting for dh Sa result . Gyne suggestion was to try iui before ivf. I too might not be able to go thru the whole ivf jab process )=
Hi, I am also 4dpiui.Anyone in the TWW now? Im 4dpiui today, no symptoms and going crazy with the long wait~~~~~ so hard to not think abt it!
Oh how come u got antibiotics to take? I only taking duphaston.. i dont feel v different today 5dpiui T_THi, I am also 4dpiui.
Symptoms after iui:
- light cramping for first few days. Cramp gets a little stronger today. This seems to be the same as the past after intercourse. Guess this cramp to expel sperms out?
- have diarrhoea every day after almost every meal. The nurse said is due to antibiotics. True enough, diarrhoea stops right after I finished the antibiotics
-my tongue is feeling bitter. Not sure if it is due the medications given by doc. I don't know how to swallow pills hence I always bite or grind them first.
It is so hard to differentiate If it is pregnancy symptoms or not
Antibiotic is given cos washed sperm may still contain some harmful chemicals.Oh how come u got antibiotics to take? I only taking duphaston.. i dont feel v different today 5dpiui T_T

Consider TCM to regulate your menses and also to strengthen your wombHi All, I'm new here. I had been ttc for no results. As i have irregular menses, gynae say chances are very low. My longest period length is about 5 months. Recently it had improved to 3 months. Any way to help?

I'm going to try tian yu xiang chicken essence hopefully it will help..
I'm keen to setup the group chat.. do pm if anyone wants to join.
Hi hi I faced the same rejection initially when I asked my hubby about going for fertility check. I guess not everyone (esp men) are receptive to do such test, feeling shy, or brushing their ego, thinking that we are doubting their "ability".Hi Ladies,
I am new here and i have been ttc #2 with my husband for 3.5 years. Recently I have raised out my concern and i told him that why not we do a fertility test at KKH but he refused too. He replied to me is: if have is good, if don't have also nvm and he doesnt want to have stress on these issue. But I can feel his disappointment every month whenever my menses came. Anyone of you have encounter these issue before? Whereas the husband refused to do the fertility test.
Anyway, I have give birth my #1 but that was 7 years ago with my ex. Never thought that I will look into this thread today as I was easily pregnant for my #1.
Hihi Hazelnut, I was just bring up this topic to him this morning and he was still rejected me. He told me that we can be good without kid too. Haiz... I was so upset and being hurt. My friend suggested me to go TCM to tiao my body first or go for fertility check without him. I guess these are the only things I can do now. =(Hi hi I faced the same rejection initially when I asked my hubby about going for fertility check. I guess not everyone (esp men) are receptive to do such test, feeling shy, or brushing their ego, thinking that we are doubting their "ability".
I took some time to convince him and I just done mine last week at TMC. I shown him articles about why fertility check is good, at least we know our problems (if any) and can treat it accordingly. Slowly. Talk to him during casual chat then slowly bring in this topic.
Actually for guys, they do not need to do much if there is an issue to them unless their sperm count is zero. The most they will eat 1 type of medicine and some supplements. Natural remedy will be to eat more seafood.I was telling him that the fertility check is like doing a body check up and so we could know our problem and we can treat it by medicine or any treatment. He didn't buy that idea of taking medicine would help and saying that taking these medicine will have side effect. Going for treatment like iui & ivf is definitely a NO to him. Hais... I don't know what can I do to convince him and also change his mind
Also to add on, its actually quite a common thing now. When I was at the clinic last week, its pack with many couples.Agreed with Valerie33. It's not easy to do alone. The fertility check for men is only the sperm analysis. Blood test and scan is on the woman. At least from the test, the doc can advise whether is the sperm issue or its woman's issue to recommend what's need to improve to resolve.
Is he a ego man? I think give him some time. Find a good timing that u both are more relax to talk about the topic on having kids, start the topic lightly on how nice to have your own kids then slowly bring toward the topic of having kids. Then share with him how much u wanted to bear him a child, his own child. Talk nicely. I hope that will helps.
I also took few months to convince my hubby. Jia you!
Hi Wantabb, thank you for your kind words! I used a long time to slowly convince him. This is just the beginning. I also hope all will be well.Hi Ladies, thank you for the encouragement. My husband indeed pride and ego as he is a successful business men. He had heard his friend or colleague told him the procedure before, it was an awkward experience. We have always ended up this topic unhappily. I also asked him before, are you serious about it and do you really want a kid, his replied is always don't have also nvm or if I too stress then don't try it.
Hais...guess I will just leave it to fate or go for tcm to tiao my body first.
@hazelnut_80 I am so glad your husband willing to give way and do the test with you. This is a very good start, jiayou on your tcc journey =)
Thanks for the suggestion. We asked the TCM Dr Tan. He mentioned maybe try another month before seeking fertility check, eg Fallopian tube test all these.Has your wife gone for fertility tests too? I would say there is no harm in seeking opinion from fertility specialist , whether public hospital or private. Cos when it comes to fertility, time and age matters a lot. Not to rush you guys or anything. But fertility doc can also give you an assessment on how much longer to TTC naturally or when to try assisted methods.
Did the doc gives u any medicine to boost morphology? Doc said there are cases whereby morphology of 1% or 0% also can conceive naturally.Hi,
I’m new to the thread. Me and my wife have been TTC for the past 8 months, but unable to do so. Initially, I went for sperm test and apparently, my morphology is less than 2%. and Started “Self Medicating”, eating more anti-oxident, blah blah. But still no results.
We went to Dr Tan Kien Sing @ Clementi for 3 months, every single time, there’s always acupuncture or medication prescribed. As a male, I was given some pills, 冬虫夏草，ginseng all these.
I not sure how do we track progress. Like mentioned, most of the time, me and my wife are spending ~$200/visit. Excluding those checkup that doctor require my wife to return, we’ve spent close to $900 in 3 months.
just like to understand, at what point do we seek alternative? Or are we getting impatient?
