Miscarriage after successful IUI

Been a while again. Since last message posted I've had 2 gos at IUI and I became pregnant after 2nd attempt. Sadly I miscarried at 7 weeks just 2 weeks ago (whilst on holiday)

I'm still pretty gutted to be honest despite being back at work and trying to just 'get on with things'. We have 1 more go at IUI on the NHS then have the option of moving straight to IVF (been on the waiting list for this due to my gynae history).

Just wondered if any of you have any inspiring stories to pick up my rather miserable mood. It's hard being a woman eh?

I can only imagine how you are feeling, I'm so sorry.I pretty much skipped IUIs (first was cancelled due to over-response, I thought fuck this and moved on to IVF). It's just so bloody miserable to have a miscarriage regardless, but particularly cruel given what you've been through.

I got pregnant on my second IVF, miscarried at 8 weeks. Then another failed IVF, then got pregnant on a frozen cycle, miscarried again. Got pregnant spontaneously the cycle immediately after that miscarriage, carried my gorgeous daughter to term despite terrifying bleeding at 12 weeks.

Am now pregnant (only 5 w so not counting any chickens) on my second IVF since having my daughter. Dunno what will happen, but you are a long way from done, my friend. I know it feels like the end, but it just isn't. As I'm sure your doc will tell you, much more encouraging to have gotten pregnant than to keep on getting negatives.

Thinking of you.

THALIABLOGS, sounds like you've been through some crap. Glad you have your little girl to show for and and I wish you all the best for your current pregnancy. Take care.

We've decided to take advantage of our last ditch at IUI on the NHS after our recent miscarriage (5 weeks ago). Am very nervous but think I'm ready. I so desperately want to be pregnant again and have a healthy pregnancy. Just finished my first period after m/c and it lasted 2 weeks. Hopefully my body is now regulating itself. Anyone had a sucessful pregnancy with IUI following an IUI miscarriage?

Hi, I had a successful IUI in March, had a m/c at 6 weeks, the fertility clinic then shut for refurbishment and re-opened last month. Second go of IUI last month failed and it's now our last go on NHS this month. Got my first scan on Friday...would be great to hear some success stories, it's so hard to stay positive

Hi - so sorry for your loss sad
I had acupuncture to support our second round of IUI - no herbs, just needles (didn't want any conflicts with the drug regime). It worked and she's nearly 4 now. Make sure you pick someone who is registered with the British Acupuncture Council and ideally specialises in fertility issues.
Good luck smile

Hopingforbabyno2 - good luck this cycle...I hope it goes well. Keep us posted.

We've decided to wait until after the festivities smile til we use our last IUI on the NHS.

I too tried accupuncture but was exploited by the guy that did it. He asked me to bring along my other half so that he could be involved 'no treatment', then went on to suggest 'a couple of needles' for him so that he understood how it feels...we just went along with it and were shocked when we had to stump up for 2 the price of consultations (we were in the same room having 1 appt and my other half just came along as he was asked to) ... all for a delightful £80!

I like the idea of accupuncture, but this really disheartened me unfortunately.

Any more positive IUI stories?

I know this is an old thread, but I thought I may as well post in case anyone is going through this too.. I became pregnant after my second IUI and have just miscarried, just short of 6 weeks. Found out today and am absolutely devastated. Dont qualify for NHS so been having to do it privately. Trying to decide if to stop or have another go. I used accupuncture and am convinced this helped me with conception. I just wondered if anyone else can relate to this. It is such a terrible and horribly isolating experience. I am at that awful stage where I don't know what to do with myself.

@ Snowdrop9 totally get what your feeling. I just turned 40 in January and we are planning to start the IUI process again after nearly 2 years of taking a break. I have done a total of 3 first with clomid and neg. 2nd was with Gonal F and got pregnant. On my 7th week saw the heart beat and a week later had a miscarriage. We did another and it was negative so I took a long break. We basically have unexplained infertility. I am going to try at least one more time, but I think I will be done after that. For one it's a very stressful process and another we have to pay out of pocket for it all. No way we can do IVf so it will be this or nothing. So I totally get it, but at the same time it will be well worth it when you succeed.
