I conceived twins on my third iui (had one follicle that ovulated from each side). I was extremely frustrated when the first two iuis didnt work…I had issues ovulating and my husband had amazing sperm so I just couldnt understand why it didn’t work the first or second time since they successfully made me ovulate with meds and that was my only issue. Sometimes it just doesnt work I guess! But thankfully it worked the third time (times 2!!). Best of luck and hang in there…I seriously cried so much when I was going through this process so I know how stressful it is.

It took us 3 iui’s with injectables to get our bfp (I’m 36 weeks with our first right now). We basically did the 3rd because we’d said we’d try it 3 times before moving to adoption but both of us expected it to fail. Darling Husband and I both had issues and it had taken us a little over two years to get to that point, we were both emotionally done. Since then, I’ve heard lots of multiple IUI success stories! It can totally happen. I hope this one works for you and you don’t have to worry about a 3rd though. Good luck!

On our 6th IUI we got a positive! (Typically our rE only does 4, but we pushed for more….) However, miscarried at 7 weeks. Our RE is now giving us the option of trying IUI again because it DID work, or moving to a ‘mini’ IVF (we’ve been hesitant to do IVF for a number of reasons, including cost, decisions about unused embryos, and my needle phobia😔).

Hope you find peace in whatever you decide!
