What to expect from IUI

Hi there, just as the title says I would like to know a bit more about IUI and what sort of things to ask my consultant.
I have been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, urgh! Been ttc for over 2 years, had a miscarriage in February at 8 weeks and a chemical pregnancy last week.
Next step is IUI. I am waiting on my letter coming in telling me I'm next in line. What I am wondering is should I ask to have IUI with meds or injections? I ovulate on my own so not sure if consultant would agree to meds. I was last at my consultant in April and she said waiting list could be 4 months but hoping it's a lot sooner than that.

Yeah he can make the initial appointment and the insemination obviously lol. Just hope his work understand that he will need the time off no matter what. I am just so desperate to get an appointment through and talk everything over. The injections are my worst fear, I have a needle phobia ๐Ÿ˜•.

I was worried about the needles too but they are so tiny you honestly can hardly feel them. They also come in a pen which you push in and then press a button so it's not like giving yourself a proper injection. I did them in my stomach as I had a good amount of fat there lol.

That's where I'll be doing my injections lol, plenty fat there too. Aw the things you need to do to get a baby eh ๐Ÿ˜•

I am 6dpiui first one after a natural conception 5 years ago. Iui due to my partner left infertile after cancer treatment. I had many 12/13 follicles without medication. Anyone else waiting on taking that long awaited pregnancy test? I'm anxious and looking out for every single little sign. I've been waiting for this moment for so long now I just don't think I could cope with a negative result ๐Ÿ˜ฉ Xx
