IUI at Olive
Posted 16 September 2015 - 12:43 PM
After seeing my Dr a couple times, she made some suggestions and we tended to choose iui to try first. We are going to see Dr to let her know our decision . Since we have been seeing her in Surrey location and she has said it will be done in surrey by a nurse ( unless on the weekend or nurse is on vacation, then it will be in vancouver) . Anyone has experience in Surrey location? I am kind of hesitate as the location is quite new and sounds like there is only one person (nurse) to perform iui. How is the experience in Vancouver location? Is it done by nurses or doctors? Is it the nurse to wash the sperm or other lab staff?

i believe IUIs are typically done by nurses at Genesis, so I wouldnt be surprised if they are done by nurses at Olive as well. I wouldnt worry too much about the facilities or the fact that there is only one nurse, IUIs are very simple.

Yes my IUI was done by a nurse in Vancouver. My husband gave his sample, the lab processed it and two hours later we came back for the insemination. I have only ever had a consult at the Surrey office, but I'm certain that the drs wouldn't provide service that wasn't top notch. I wouldn't be worried about it all. Good luck with everything!

I haven't used the Surrey location, but I had 9 IUI's before my IVF cycle & all were performed by a nurse. I don't believe the dr's do any of the IUI's only IVF. I've never had a problem with the nurses doing them. Good luck!
