Slightly Worried re: IUI

TWisebaker's picture

I was just reading that IUI only works 10-22% of the time. That's less than a 1-in-4 chance!
It's upsetting to me.
We did our first round if IUI a week ago - no additional drugs were involved - so now I'm kind of freaking out.
WHAT if it doesn't work?
WHAT are we going to do?

My DH said that he's wanting to try IUI again - in a couple of months. But every week that I'm spending not being pregnant is making me upset.

We have no children. We've been trying for over 6 years.

I'm definitely having problems right now...

Introducing Myself

Hi, everyone.
Just thought I'd introduce myself.
I didn't think I'd sign up so early for an account on Pregnancy.org (or Pregnancy.anywhere, for that matter) but I figured I would. Who else would know so well what I'm going through?

My husband and I have been TTC for 6.5 years. A very long time.
About 7 weeks ago, we started on the fertility-help journey fir the first time.
Thankfully we've found out that we're both so normal it's amazing we even needed the help at all!

That's the good news.

More good news is this past Monday we did a round of IUI.
