Default Update (sperm)


Hello everyone just thought I would give you all an update on my doctors
appointment. DH sperm count was normal, but he has low mobility. She has
suggested we try IUI next cycle as long as DH sperm wash has good mobility
numbers if not we have to do IVF. Has anyone here done IUI or IVF and if so
how was it. I am scared of pain so am a little scared about doing IUI or
IVF.

Thanks

Suzy, IUI is pretty painless. IVF is not bad either. The egg retrieval
can be a little painful so be sure that you ask to be sedated enough where
you won't remember ANY pain. The transfer of the embryos doesn't hurt any
more than an IUI does. Good luck! Jazzi

Suzy,

I think the pain in an IUI is individual. I have a tilted uterus and always
thought they hurt. I was given anesthesia for the egg retrieval so I don't
remember that pain and the transfer of embryos was less painful than an IUI.

I know that probably doesn't help, but I wish you luck.

Default Update (ovulation)


i have a tilted uterus too but haven't experienced any pain directly
associated with the iui's. its been more the ovulation. and, i think the
most painful thing during the procedure is not being able to relieve
yourself when you've been forced to drink 6 glasses of water an hour prior
to it.

Thanks for the advice. I also have a tilted uterus so am I a little afraid
that it will hurt like hell. I am a chicken when it comes to dealing with
pain. Any other comments and advice would be great.

I have a tilted uterus and never had a problem in 14 cycles of IUI.
Also my 3 IVFs were not that painful, but I was never a good responder
to the stims (most I got was 6 eggs), so if you respond really well you
may hurt more after the retrieval. A good RE will monitor you really
carefully though to be sure you don't *over* stimulate. Tons more eggs
is
not necessarily a good thing!!

Good luck to you,

I never had to drink water prior to having an IUI, and I had 14 of them!
Different strokes for different doctors, I guess.

Default Update (bladder ultrasound)


yep, guess so. mine requires 6 glasses of water prior to each one so that
its done on a full bladder. something about better being able to see my
uterus on the ultrasound to make sure they get the catheter close enough to
my tubes without jabbing the sides or going up inside one of them. at the
last one, because i couldn't hold it any longer they let me go - told me to
count to 5 and stop, which isn't easy when you are that full - and made me
drink another 2 cups of water without checking to see if my bladder was full
enough. then i had to empty a little again 'cause it was too full.

after 2 days of that, it took a while before i could make myself drink 1
glass of water.
