IUI success rates-superov vs clomid
Posted 20 October 2010 - 09:03 AM
Married almost 10 years
After Testicular Biopsy testing for husband figured out very low count/mobility
TTC using 3 donor IUI's in 2006 Not sucessful, treated in Saskatchewan
Adopted our SON born Sept/07!!! Our little Prince.
Adopted our DAUGHTER born Jan 7/09!!! Our little Princess.
Who knew we'd have children 15 mths apart?! Grateful to have both of them in our lives.
Info session attended in Calgary Nov/09 for ivf.
Decided to persue IVF (with ICSI). Hopeful to start in April/May 2010. We're excited and scared. Decided to start blogging our journey.
One of the most valuable quotes I've ever heard to deal with heartache and to remember: It's ok to cry- "Tears are the safetly valve of the heart when there is too much pressure on it"
Had the horrifying HSG repeated again Mar 17/10-it hurt like hell and I sure didn't have "the luck of the Irish" today. lol.
Hopeful to accept/be offered treatment in May/June 2010 and get this process going. Scared and Excited.
May 20th/10 Got the call! Super excited, nervous and scared!Take it one day at a time.
Tentative Schedule : Start Suprefact nasal May 30th, Ultrasound June 14th, Start Stims June 15th, ER June 28th, ET July 3rd.
May 26th/10 Made payment to the clinic-no turning back now lol.
Converted to IUI June 30/10 as my follicles are inaccessable and it would be too dangerous to attempt ER therefore IVF not an option for us. Very Disappointed.
Very shocked to have a BFP!!! Betas July 15th(28), July 19th (152), July 23rd (173) July 25th (178)
Bleeding/cramping started July 21st. Not sure If we'll make it, so scary.
Due date Mar 24/11.
Very painful miscarriage. Heartbroken.

When doing IUI's is the success rate better using superovulation or clomid?
Most IUI's recieve clomid which is a type of superovulation drug. Very few clinics do natural cycle IUI. Treatment with clomid does require careful monitoring to avoid multiple pregnancies.
What is the reasoning behind this? Thankyou.
