IUI experience
As you all know, I'm starting my IUI cycle from Monday. I just wanted to make this post to ask you, people, some things. How many of you have previously had the experience of undergoing an IUI cycle? What should I expect? What things should I be prepared for? I'd love any kind of help I can get. Thank you so much!

That's fantastic news, Mindy! I'm delighted for you. This is a good decision on your part. I'm sure this is the answer to your struggles. I had a similar journey. The only difference was that I opted for IVF. Sending you lots of love and baby dust. You can do this, honey!

This is so exciting! Look I can give you the advice which I was given. But, after my own experience, I think you just need to remember that it's okay to be anxious and to worry a little. It's only natural, you know? Good luck to you! Just try and be patient, a little bit. I hope this happens for you, as early as possible. So, that you don't have to wait a lot!

I had a good experience with IUI. I needed like four cycles of IUI. The good thing is, that they only increase your fertility. So, that's an amazing thing, as your attempt doesn't exactly go to waste. I hope you don't have to wait that long. The wait is excruciatingly difficult. You'll have to be brave to get through it. Distract yourself, or find something to go. Good luck!

Thank you so much for the sweet messages, everyone. It means an awful lot! I don't know what I would do without your help. It's so important to have someone experienced, around. I'm all alone, in this regard. However, these messages change that. It feels that I can get all the support that I need from you. It's really nice of you. It's a bit scary going on this journey. I hope things run along smoothly. I did not expect TTC to take this much time. But, hopefully, this is the beginning of the end! As you all know, new things can be a little difficult to try. I'll try to keep you all updated. This is really valuable advice!

Don't mention it, Mindy. You are right, though. It was quite tough for me. I wasn't this lucky! I never came across this forum before. I wish I had, it could've been quite a bit of help! It's full of lovely women. Everyone is so nice to each other. Trying to help each other all the time. It's nice to see that. Either way, we're going to be here to help you out! Don't worry about it! I'm sure the procedure will be just fine. Good luck and keep your hopes high! Lots of baby dust and prayers for you. Plus, Merry Christmas, honey, I hope it brings you a BFP!

Hey, Mindy, I hope you're well. I am glad that things are finally taking a positive turn in your life. It is pretty hard to go through such a situation. You are right it is very important to ask others for advice. It's really hard to determine who is right and wrong on this journey. Therefore, asking for a second opinion is important. I am learned this with experience as well. The clinic I am visiting now things with them are going really well. However, this wasn't always the case. We had to struggle a lot! All my previous cycles with another clinic failed. I was really about to quit. However, decided to give this clinic one last chance. Now things are going way better. Really excited about everything.

Hi Mindy! I am glad that you are going for IUI. IUI is a great treatment for infertile people. It's always better to keep your expectations low on this journey. I have tried IUI myself but it didn't work out for me. The success rate of this treatment is not that high. But it also depends on the clinic you are opting for. If the clinic's success rate is high then your chances are also high. I think it's always better to skip IUI and go for IVF. IVF has a very high success rate compared to IUI. But I hope this works out for you. Good luck. Stay blessed! Bye!
