Hi all, i'm new to this forum and i've just done my first IUI at Thomson Medical Center, been experiencing cramps since then, cant stand for long or sleep well. its like menstrual cramps but worse...dont know how long its gonna last....anyone with same experience can advise...
Hello Ladies, can I join you?
A quick intro on myself:
trying to concieve: 2 yrs plus
1st IUI on 20 Aug...
I'm in my 2ww also.
I have some light brown spotting today...think it is AF? So worried.
Hi Babylicious, could it be implatation spotting?
I just had my 2nd IUI done last Wed 25th Aug. Till now I have cramps on and off but no symptoms whatsoever. So am pretty worried myself
Trying to conceive is really a lonely journey at times So I was hopping to know some close friends here to encourage and help one another
Hi Noop & minakochang, so sad...my af came today. 1st IUI failed...feel like i'm a let down to my dear husband.
minakochang, i'm on natural IUI...my gynae did not give me any support at all...am I suppose to have any support? pls advice.
Now really at a lose. dont know what should be my next step...another IUI or IVF????
Pls advise sistas....thks.
Noop, I totally agree with you that trying to concieve is really a lonely journey...that's y I came to this forum to look for some budds who are on the same journey as me. Think nobody understands us better than those on the same 'BOAT'.

Hi minakochang, I've been TTCing for 2yrs already. Went for removal of endometriosis on one of my ovaries in oct last yr. Cont with TTCing but still no news and my gynae requested for a hsg done in Jul this yr which found one side of my tube to be partly blocked. Thus she suggested IUI. My hormone levels are fine and I've been ovulating regularly after clearing my endo. dear husband SA turns out to be fine also except for morphology which doc said is just slight below the norm.
Where should I go from here? Cont with IUI or opt for IVF?
It all depends on both of you, if you still have time and age is not a factor. Since you failed natural iui, you want to try so-iui first (medicated iui - either with oral pills (clomid) or injection (puregon). I would suggest you to try other non-invasive treatment first. Because IVF is very tedious, costly and mental draining.
minakochang, you really are a woman of strength...think i should learn from you...not to be so dishearten by just a failure...as the chinese saying goes...failure is the mother of success...i''m sure you n all ladies trying to concieve will get their well deserved BFP...hehe...not forgetting me too
minakochang, right now, i'm with NUH under dr Anulpriya...every heard of her??? when I had my IUI, i had already ovulated the prev day. Is that the standard protocol for IUI? Any idea?

minakochang, on D13 of my cycle, doc did you/s. I had 1 mature follicle at 16mm and womb lining was about 9mm. I was told to jab ovidrel on D14. On D16, the day of my IUI, doc did another you/s and told me I have already ovulated as the follicle had shrunk to 14mm. Told me I could have ovulated on D15. My dear husband's sperm count was around 30mil also. After the IUI, I was not given any support at all. Was told to just go home and go back to NUH for BT 3 wks later.
sigh....however, AF came on D29. That's y I thought of checking with you the protocol of IUI.
yup, think i'll do just that. Thks a million....hehe...think I'll also ask my gynae about SO-IUI.
hi gal! just discovered that my hubby suffers from servered teratozoospermia and the test was 2.5yrs ago! i felt so stupid to believe that gynae's words which says is normal... hated myself for not done the research online earlier on...
now was hoping that hubby will agree to do another test 2 mths later to see if there's any improvement... for the time being, think i'll go to see traditional chinese medicine for both of us..
anyone can advise what might caused this prob and what can be done to improve? as i saw websites that they said there's nothing to cure for this prob...
Hi, just to share...
i've asked a traditional chinese medicine thru email on teratozoospermia.. his reply was, this was due to kidney function with the lact of yin/yang, etc... saying acupunture might be able to help to improve...
if not, can go to thong chai medical institute whereby they have this similar case also... or can do ICSI....
i was thinking to bring my hubby down for acupuncture to see how first... for his case, the traditional chinese medicine say will try to help my hubby and first treatment session is 5 weeks and need to do acupunture twice a week during this period and see how...
not really cheap but hope that he can help to improve his condition...
hope that i did help some of you here with the same probs...
