Any positive stories?

I am so ready to be a Mum!

My first DD was a product of donor sperm and IUI. We had 5 cycles - 2 abandoned and 3 inseminations before the final cycle worked. The final insemination was different to the others.

my grand daughter was conceived using donor sperm as my son is infertile. the little one is 6 weeks old.
it took my daughter in law 3 tries, she had few irregular cycles. lots of bloodwork is all I know.

positive thoughts coming your way.

Well, I did medicated IUI and it worked first time for me. Does happen. The odds depend on whether you have any known fertility problems, I think. Plus luck and how you respond to the drugs...

Just felt different from the beginning. Lots of medication tweaking initially

My DD was conceived using donor sperm and IUI. Third time lucky. I had acupuncture which I'd always been quite sceptical of previously, but that was the one which worked!

i had 6 rounds of IUI before switching to IVF ( DS is now 5) but it turned out I had fertility challenges as well as no partner!!

My daughter was conceived by donor IUI - 5th attempt. Lots of tweaking medication. My experience is only n=1 but on attempt 5 I had acupuncture, if nothing else I felt much calmer. Good luck.

I got pregnant my first natural IUI with donor sperm. Sadly it ended in miscarriage but i guess that's just unrelated bad luck. If you don't have known fertility problems (same sex couple, single women etc) the odds are good. The published success rates include everyone with fertility problems as well.

I have 2 DC both conceived by donor sperm using IUI. I took clomid each time, got pregnant first time with DC1, took a few more attempts with DC2 - conceived on about the 4th time if I remember right.
