thanks thanks. I am not too sure my HCG level for today. But when I tested on Monday, nurse told me HCG is 3 that's wht they want me to do another blood test today. this afternoon they called me to congra that I am preggie but didn't mention about HCG?
How about you?
Seems like your level and my level r totally measurement... I will ask doc again this Fri.
So how soon did you know positive result after IUI? And did you get spotting? This afternoon I still got brown spotting through... Worry though....
The nurse asked me to test on day 18 ( count on IUI day ) but I tested on day 17 and it shown positive .
My IUI done on 14/10/2011, eggs released on 16/10/2011, tested positive on 30/10/2011.
No brown spotting so far but yellow n white mucus came out.
I am new here.
Just had my first IUI done on 20th Oct 2011. Was on Puregon injections, had the trigger shot 2 days before the procedure n when I had the scan on the day during my iui, doc said I have ovulated.
Tested this morning at hm but was negative, I feel very disappointed n puzzled why menses is not here yet. I had cramping since my IUI, but these 2-3 days seems like not so much cramping, more like slight tighness in the abdomen. Had sore swollen breasts since about one wk ago but these 2 days breasts like softening not painful anymore. I also started feeling like no appetite n feel like vomitting these few days.
Do you think there is still a chance I may be preg? Are there people who have their menses more than 14days after they have ovulated? When shld I test again? I am scared to test again as worried result may still be the same n had to deal w the disappointment again. But on the other hand, I think each day when my menses didn't come, I wld wish to test again. sigh...
Need your advice! Thks!
Oh I also keep getting translucent/white discharge throughout these 2wks...
Just keep testing every day once...
Nowadays I get very stress and in order not for my stress to affect my menses cycle, I have to test when my menses are about to come - else my body will make sure that my menses are delayed. Testing negative seems to make me accept the truth, so usually after testing, my menses will come next day.
For me, it is better to know the truth earlier - who knows, perhaps you will see it positive, since HCG will take time to multiply and show on the HPT. Good Luck!
Hi Pototo Lover
I am also done my IUI on 21 Oct. 10days after IUI, I went to do blood test, and D12 went to do another blood test, result is positive.
I believe blood test is faster and accurate pregnancy test. Did your doc ask you to o back and check?
We r about the same time did the IUI, so I believe by now you should be able to know the result.
do you go back for blood test on d6/7, any idea for what?
Thks for your prompt reply. Yes you are right, think it does make me accept the truth. I tested a few times during my 3.5 yrs of trying n decided that i will only test when i am very very sure i shld be preg like when my menses is at least one wk late, so as not to waste money on the HPT kits. My menses also always comes the day after I have tested negative, maybe i was feeling very stressed n didnt realize it. Now I think I shld just test on 14dpiui onwards so that expectations do not escalate n thus the disappointments.
I tested again this morning n still negative, but was expecting a negative, so I dont feel as bad as yest morning. Now just wait for my menses to come or if a positive sign appears miraculously. Maybe cos I was on Puregon so menses coming abit later. Fingers crossed!
Congrats! Is this your first IUI? And y you need to go for 2 blood tests on Day 10 n 12 after IUI?
Nope, my doc asked me to do HPT 2wks after IUI if menses didn't come, and if neg n menses still doesn't come, test again 2 days later. But I can't rem what he said if 2 days later still neg n menses doesnt come then what I shld do, haha.
I think I shall just continue to test at home these few days. And if menses still doesn't come by Tue, think I will call the clinic on Tue n see what they say.
As long as menses are not here, everyday is a new hope... For me, I got the HPT from website that cost very cheap, $0.70 each... so can afford to test from DPO14 onwards. Today is my DPO13, and i tested negative. I did my 1st IUI last month and it is not successful. This month we try natural... and I was hoping for miracle as usual. Anyway, I do not want my menses to get delayed, as I am scheduled to do SO-IUI this dec - afraid that it may clash with Kandang Kerbau Hospital Closure from christmas to new year...
Guess in this road, there is a lot of hurdles for us to clear.. we can only wish for short term growth every now and then...
Happy that Carol n BBdream strike this month - makes me hopeful again about famous-for-low-success-rate IUI.
Cheers Ladies.. It will happen to us someday
How about you?How is your result?

I guess that 2 times blood test is to check m HCG level. 1st Tim came out HCG 3, 2nd times HCG 34. and I also think that my blood test was too soon, usually D14 will be more accurate. Today is my D14 another blood test again, just now the clinic called me to tell me that HCG become 328. Usually the no. will double each day, but my no. is jumped like 10 times. They suspect it's twin or triplet....
When is your menses for this cycle?
Thks for your encouragement.
Ya a lot of hurdles, n sometimes it's frustrating hearing others just got preg like right after wedding or people who dont know what we are going thru just say things like if you want baby you must count the days n try on those days, mostly can conceive, or like use ovulation kit sure can strike, blah blah blah... -_-
Sprinkle dust for you!! Hope to hear good news.
Btw, can recommend me the website? How long does it take to deliver?
Alamak I just bot 3 boxes frm Guardian last night, 5 HPTs costs me $40.
Wow! Double congrats! You must be so excited! It does make me feel more hopeful hearing your good news!
My menses came on 6th Oct, so shld come on 6th Nov, but usually late, sometimes as late as 1wk. But this time when. Did the IUI, my gynae said I have ovulated, so I didn't expect it to come later than 2wks. Anyway, had bait of brown discharge just now n think most likely my menses will come full-blown tml. Will start my Puregon jabs soon once confirm menses come n try IUI again next month.
I think your brown discharge may be the implantation bleeding which is common in the pregnancy symptom. I also have brown to dark chocolate spotting on D11 till now getting lesser. Maybe it would be the implantation bleeding? These symptom is similar like menus is coming....
And today already 4 nov, so your chance is pretty high. Coz my oc said if not succeed, m menus will come straight away. ( my next cycle is due on 9 nov, so doc said if I am not preggie, I would have mensus by now).
Thanks for your wishes...
BB Shop - ovulation and pregnancy tests strips: Pregnancy Strips
Got to know this shop from here as well actually... If you order from US, maybe will be cheaper, but to me, anything less than $1 for 1 is good enough... But for ovulation kit, perhaps need to get the better reputation ones esp when going through IUI, since we need to pinpoint exactly the 1st date of ovulation.
