Well I started spotting yesterday - 11 DPIUI. and it's still happening today! UGH UGH UGH! I seriously don't know what causes the early spotting?! Like I want to know if this is an issue - will this prevent me from getting pregnant? Is it normal?! I always thought it was due to low progesterone, but I started progesterone cream, my level was 26 this month (the highest it's ever been!) yet I still started spotting same time I have the past few months.
I know I shouldn't get discouraged, we technically are only on our 3rd IUI (we can't get pregnant on our own) so really we are like a "normal" couple, so I know that it can take several months to get pregnant...it's just that we have been trying for 2.5 years (before we realized there was a problem, then all the testing, waiting, and now IUI) so it just seems like so much longer!!! I don't want to give up hope, but sometimes I feel like it's never going to happen
Does your doctor not prescribe progesterone after the IUI. Mine said it is par for the course in his clinic to prescribe it after iui as they mess with your cycle a little with the trigger shot and that it may not be needed but very few want to give it that chance.
well went to the doc today. he said that last cycle was follicle was so large at CD 13, before trigger, that perhaps we missed the egg, and that I'm not reacting well to clomid. He wants to start me on injectables this cycle. and NO he does NOT give me progesterone after the IUI. however now that I'll be doing injectables, I will be prescribed progesterone suppositories after the next IUI.
If I still have early spotting, then I'll prob have to do some more testing.
