IUI
Hi guys. So I have been doing some research about IUI. I have just started it so I don't really know much about it. Does anyone here know anything about it? I would love to hear about your IUI experiences too. A friend of mine is facing some infertility issues. She went to see a doctor recently. He ran some tests on the couple. her test results came out today. It turns out everything is fine with them. There is literally nothing wrong. But still, she can't seem to get pregnant. It is really worrying her. I thought maybe IUI would be an answer for her. I'm really looking forward to reading the comments here. Thank you.

Hi Blake. Well, yes! Stuff happens! I mean yeah. But, clearly, you should get consulted with a doctor. You can decide on your own...I mean yes! Well, as I've PCOS. I heard it before that IVF would be an answer for it. But, clearly, since years I didn't go for it. Until this year my obstetrician recommended me for it. So, yeah. Get your obs recommendation before heading somewhere. Anyway! Stay blessed. I hope she gets what she wants. My best wishes are with her. xx

Hey. I am so sorry for your friend. It is a hard time for her. I am so sad for her. I know how much this hurt. My friend was infertile. She visited many clinics for treatment but nothing worked. She decided to go for IVF. It was really a painful procedure. It failed in the second cycle too. She then went for IUI. It also failed with no luck. She was left with an option of surrogacy. She went for it to Europe. There she was given a surrogate. She was so happy because her dream was becoming true. She then went for it and the surrogate gave birth to a healthy baby. She is a mother now.

I don't think that IUI is the answer to that. It's really not. It happened tone of my relative as well and she really faced much trouble while going through this problem. It's really not that easy. There every test was alright. Everything was fine. There was nothing wrong. Still, they were unable to conceive. In the end, after trying everything. They end up with the adoption. Now my cousin is 16 years old and he doesn't have any idea that he is adopted. They are really happy. I recommend her to go for either surrogacy or adoption. This could save you a time as well as resources.

Hi Rachel. I suggested the same. But I feel like one should try and carry the baby themselves when they can do it. Unexplained infertility s not that hard to cure. Sometimes IUI or IVF does work. People who have this kind of issues should try IUI and IVF first if IUI doesn't work. It's better to choose the easier options first.

Hey, I hope you're doing well. Unexplained infertility can be frustrating because you are unaware of the reason behind infertility. However, unfortunately, it is the most common type of infertility. IUI only has 20% chance of success. It is just like naturally conceiving they just insert sperm directly in to help with the whole procedure. I have seen people opt for it more than 5 times for it to work. However, usually, everyone after this opts for IVF because it has 60% chance of success. It all depends on your condition really.

I don't know much about IUI. I guess you should consult some good doctor for her. As no one can decide on his own which treatment to chose. Choice of the treatment completely depends on the condition. You have to know what exactly is the issue. There are many clinics out there to help her. You just have to find out the best one for her. I have been through all this situation. But then I was diagnosed with unexplained infertility. So, there must be a name of the thing getting in their way of conceiving. You have to find that first. Then you can decide which way to go. Sending love and wishes to her. I hope they will find the real reason soon. More power and strength to them. Meanwhile, you keep supporting her. Stay by her side. And try to keep her happy. Lots of love to you.

Hi Blake. How are you doing? Hope your friend is fine. Knowing your friend's situation, I suggest her surrogacy. It is the best option. Your child will have your own genes. It is my suggestion. It is you who can choose the best option for you. May your friend's dream of becoming mother come true. Good luck.

Hey guys. So this friend of mine is really confused. I suggested she tries assisted conception. I even tried helping her out in finding a good clinic. But she is very confused. IUI is simpler than IVF. She wants to go for IUI because she doesn't want to complicate things And I have a feeling it might work for her. Since her results showed no problem whatsoever. I think she just needs a little assistance to conceive. But I can't let her do anything without having full knowledge about it. So I was hoping to find people who have babies through IUI. It would've helped a lot. And thanks for trying to help. It means a lot to us. You guys are amazing.

IUI wasn't successful for me. I went for some cycles of IUI but it didn't work out for me. Then I went for a few rounds of IVF. But it also didn't work for me. Then I went for another solution to have a baby. The solution worked like a charm for us. We live in a country where infertility treatments are prohibited. So we went to Europe for infertility treatment. In Europe, there were a number of clinics for infertility treatments. We chose one clinic. And we consulted with them. With the proper consultation with the clinic, we decided on the best solution. The clinic staff was very much cooperative. They guided us in a proper way through every step. The treatment resulted for us in twin daughters. And we are much satisfied with the services of the clinic.

Hi, lovely! I hope you're alright. I'm so sorry to hear about your friend. She must be feeling awful. IUI is actually a fertility treatment that involves placing sperm inside a woman's uterus to facilitate fertilization. The basic goal is to increase the chances of pregnancy by increasing the number of sperms that reach the fallopian tubes. There's about a 10-20% chance of success with IUI in the first cycle. It increases with every cycle. It's a pretty effective method. It's not really that expensive, either. I'd suggest your friend go for it. A bit of luck is definitely needed. Patience is also required, to be fair. Good luck to her! I hope it works!

IUI is a really good technique. It's quite often used, nowadays. It boosts the chances of conceiving. My friend underwent this treatment and it was very beneficial to her. I'm glad people are talking about such things! Keep up the good work. It's so important to spread information about this.

I'm sorry to hear this. If it's any consolation, let me explain how IUI is actually good. The good thing is, her fertility will increase. It increases with every cycle. So, no need to worry! Good luck to her! You should tell her to keep trying. Initial cycles almost never work!
