My partner and I (same sex couple) are about to start our first round of stimulated IUI. I’m going for my baseline scan tomorrow and will start medication I think over the next few days too. Absolutely dreading injecting myself!
I’ve been doing everything I’ve read about like no booze, no caffeine, eating well, exercising and also the other stuff like acupuncture and hot baths etc. Any other tips?!
I’m also struggling to find a happy medium between positivity and pragmatism... I want to be positive and tell myself it will work but equally not set myself up for a fall (the success rate is only 29%!).
Is anyone else going through the same thing?
On the Mumsnet Donor Conception forum, you can discuss sperm and egg donation with people in the same situation.
IUI - buddies, tips or words of wisdom?
