In Need of Advice :)

I got my lh surge at around 11pm Wednesday(testing every 6 hours). Should I do the IUI on Friday morning? Thurs. morning would only be about 11hrs or so and Fri. morning would be about 33 hours or so (but I have about a 6hr room for error because of my testing time...so it could be up to 38hrs). I really appreciate and value your opinions...thank you so much for taking the time to share ideas with me!!!!

    You should test when you come home from work every day until you get a positive. The IUI is done the morning after the surge and if you want back to back IUIs you can have a second IUI the following morning.

    For you the first IUI should have been 01/29 with a second IUI 01/30 if you want back to back. You probably missed the ovulation this cycle.

    I ended up doing my IUI today (Friday). My numbers looked good. I had 38m spermies with 84 motility. Hopefully this is the one. I have my fingers crossed. Thanks for the advice. :)

    I am on my 4th round but first round with menopur (clomid in the past). I had the same questions about ovulation so I am doining a monitored and am confused about the donor purchase. I have never had 3million. My RE services included washing so I purchased ICI and had him do the washing. What type did you purchase to get 38 mil? I have never had that great of a number. I am considering switching donors but took a lot of time and careful thought to select the one I did. I am so confused and need to make my decision this weekend. Good luck to you. the 2WW seems like forever so try and stay busy.

    Hi hillnetnitco,

    I used the IUI premium vials. CCB will guarantee at least 10M spermies. The vials are already washed.. they just have to be defrosted. My donor is retired.. I only have one more vial after this. So I'm hoping this will be the "one." I wish you the best of luck.
