Would you do IUI in this situation?

@nhoh:  Yes I would! If your insurance covers it, why not give every chance you can get for a bfp? : ) I mean of course you can still have your normal BD’ing too to add good measure! Good luck!!!

If insurance covers 100% of the cost of it then why not. You won’t be out of pocket if it doesn’t work and if it does work then you’ll get your baby! Good luck! :)

I would definitely go for it b/c 1) it’s covered by your insurance and 2) it increases your chances.  I did it 5 times with my ex-H and although they tell you that you can’t BD 36 hours BEFORE the IUI (builds up the spermies) they DO tell you to BD that night and the next couple of days so….who’s to say which time it actually worked, you know?  Good luck!!!!

I agree, why not?  It’s not like anyone will ask you when you actually conceived, or at least I hope not!!  Good luck!

Being pregnant with an IUI baby myself,(not covered by insurance) I’d say go for it!!!!!!  We did several rounds of meds (injections for me) and timed intercourse that didn’t work.  If you can increase your chances and not pay out of pocket – why the heck not?!  Good luck!

@nhoh:  I would so do it if I were you!  I’m a little overzealous though, I would do it next cycle if my insurance would cover it and we’ve only been TTC for 4 months.

@nhoh:  I would do IUI in this situation, too. I was in the same boat as you, I think (took Femara/Ovidrel, DH’s SA was good), but we opted for the IUI because I just wanted to give us the best possible shot of convceiving. Each cycle with the RE takes so much effort (all those monitoring appointments!), and you have to take so many drugs/hormones, that I just wanted to do my best to limit the number of times I’d have to go through this. My husband was kind of wary of the idea, at first — he wanted to do it the old-fashioned way — but he came around. :) Good luck to you!

@texasbee: That’s what we did, too — BD right after the IUI, so that we don’t really 100% know whether it was the IUI or the actual funky dance that did it! This made my husband feel better about it.
