    Default IUI & sperm check up - how long have you been ttc?

    Quick question:

    1. How long before you got hubby's swimmers checked did you ttc for?
    2. How long before you started iui have you been ttc for?

    I only just started ttc but have had lap surgery to remove endometriosis and therefore wish to exhaust all options to conceive as fast as possible as soon as possible.

    Hubby reckons we should wait 4 months but I don't think there is any harm to test before at least and I beliebd iui would enhance our chances too.

    Default IUI & sperm check up - how long have you been ttc?

    Have been TTC for 19 months now. Got DHs swimmers checked around the 12 month mark at the same time we got our referral to the FS. Saw the FS the next week (but I was lucky as there was a cancellation). We did one or two cycles of ovulation monitoring/other testing (HSG to check patency of tubes) before starting on Clomid. On the 4th round of Clomid we did IUI, which was unsuccessful. Hoping to do another cycle with IUI next month if I'm not pg this month. Have had 2 cycles off over Christmas/NY as my FS has been away, but DH and I have still been actively trying in that time.

    We unfortunately waited 3 years before getting everything checked out. We got a referral to our fertility specialist and was about a 3 week wait before we got in to see her.
    The first things we did once we met with her was me I had blood tests to check levels of everything along with a HSG and hubby had a SA.
    From there we have done 3 months of clomid and have just done our first clomid with IUI cycle... still yet to find out if I get my BFP
    Hope that helps and good luck.
