This is a discussion on IVF/ICSI/IUI general support and Discussion groups 2010 within the Trying To Conceive forum, part of the You and Your Family category; Originally Posted by KirstenQ Hi viv, I will be going for my first round of iui this week. Wishing you ...
*sigh*...2nd cycle is a failure....dont't know whether to go on trying. Really disappointed and feel like giving up.
Pls dont't give up & think positive. Did you consider IVF since you have been trying sometimes? I felt that IUI doesn't help much where putting hope then get nothing end up disappointed(2ww is nervous).
Govt Grant - $3,000 max 3 times
CPF - $6k (1st attempt), $5k (2nd attempt) and $4k (3rd attempt)
In my case, I am on long cycle, with extended suppression (ie 3 weeks of Lucrin injection) followed by 13 days of 450iu of puregon (I think its the max 1 person can take)
And if you include all the blood tests, scans etc me n hubby need to do, I paid cash of about $4k.
I have a feeling that my cycle is should be close to the max already. So, if you do not have as much hormone issues than me, it should be cheaper. I have heard of pple paying around $1k+ cash only..
I failed 3 iuis before, thats y m attempting IVF now.. Age is caatching up. No choice.. =) But all the best to you!!
If you are thinking of govt grant, then your choices will most prob be either KK, singapore general hospital or NUH. Just bear in mind that you will need to go to the clinic quite often during the IVF program. So you should consider the location of the clinic as well.
All the best!!
Dr Yu is head if dept in singapore general hospital. The head of KK is Dr Loh. He is also a very popular choice. However, if I m not wrong the waiting list for KK is is longer than singapore general hospital. So plan ahead
Hi mummy to be..
I had my first iui. My baby is currently 6 weeks old. There will be miracles.
Please continue to have hopes (I finally have mine after 4 yrs of marriage)
I have been married for more than 10 year, no luck on natural.
Unfortunately i did 6x of IUI all failed.. (i have blocked L tude & Hubby sperms are low too) *Feeling so depress*
Finally I am being brave and hubby agreed and now we are starting our IVF process at KK. Today (25th Aug) is my day 10 of injecting. Hope everything goes smooth for us...
Really hope MIRACLE.
Are your joining this following seminar? No harm to spend our time sitting there. Cheer!
I am on KKIVF, start in Sep, would llike to know more ppl who start the same period
Anyone has went through the process, appreciate your update on the flow from Day 1
NUH provide ART services...IUI, IVF, ICSI etc. Hope to reduce super long 'Q' on KK & singapore general hospital.

I'm going for my very first IUI procedure soon and am keeping my fingers crossed. Just suffered a (natural) chemical pregnancy last month so am a little bumped... Hopefully this procedure will be successful and the little one will stick!
But from what i read on this thread, IUI success rate does not seem to be high.... But I'm a little scared of the whole IVF process / procedure hence I told my doc I wanted to try IUI first. She limited me to 2 IUI cycles only though because I have rather bad endometriosis.
Keeping fingers crossed and lotsa sticky baby dust to everyone!
