I just wanted to post my journey with unexplained infertility and IUI treatment. I also wanted to tell you what I did in this successful cycle
I have been trying for nearly 3 years and during this time I suffered 2 miscarriages (conceived naturally) one very early on and the second at 5 weeks.
The first IUI failed. My clinic's normal procedure is to trigger 24 hours before which I thought was too early. So I decided to trigger sooner I triggered 31 hours before the procedure. Triggered at 7am on Thursday, procedure was Friday at 2pm
I also bd Wednesday night and Saturday around noon.

I did not take any hormones during any of the cycles. I did however take maca powder and another supplement for stress. Made my hubby take those plus creatine, l cartamine and tribulus.
I also did fertility yoga at home twice per week.

I tested this weekend and I got a positive result! After two miscarriages I am being very reserved and not overly happy. Fingers crossed all goes well.

Please try this and let me know if this has worked for you!

Sending you all the luck!!!

Congratulations and good luck!

Could you perhaps share about more about fertility yoga? Sounds interesting.

I did one for fertility and stress as I have been suffering from anxiety for the past year. So this cycle I tried really hard to manage it as I read that it can impact fertility. There was loads on you tube but I did this one https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=wabBWg2MSQw&t=1678s and i also been listening to headspace. My anxiety has really improve since.
