Hey Bitbit,

My answers are based on the tx I had last year.

1) Cycle cost £895 inc drugs

2) I injected Gonal F and a HCG.

3) Success rates as with all tx vary.

4) Yes you do need scans to know when the IUI will take place.

Why not take a look on the www.hfea.co.uk website (I think the address is correct) for more info. on statistics.

Good luck

^wave^ Hello

Wishing you lots of luck and babydust with whatever you decide ^fairydust^

As for me, heres my answers to your questions;

1. Our IUI now costs £495 (Just gone up by £100) plus £7 prescription for drugs

2. I have to inject menopaur to stimulate my follicles to grow, I know that there are some ladies on here who have natural cycles of IUI.

3. At our clinic the success rate is about 15%, its doesn't sound much but its still just over 1 in 10 (heaps better than no odds)

4. Personally at my clinic we have a scan on day 8, then if we need further scans every couple of days

I think thats about it really apart from, I know murtle did a good post the otherday so have a read of if you haven't already

Lots of love Candy x

Anything else just ask

Hello ;D

Me and dh are just beginning IUI and will be paying in the region of £900 per cycle and that is without DI, so I guess clinics vary a great deal in price. I know my clinic offers around 16% chance of success and dont suggest more than 3 attempts because of this.

My clinic suggests drugs to stimulate you to produce up to 3 eggs but I know it can be done without but I dont know if this lowers the chances. They start scanning on day 7, which varies from Candy's and then a further scan every 3 days.

The best thing for you to do is contact you local clinic(s) and check out their pricing and success rates, they usually have an information pack they can send you.

I hope this helps, there really is no definitive answer, everywhere seems to be different which means you will end up with a lot of reading to do and a lot of info to take in before you make thi shuge decision.

Good luck with whatever you decide.

hi BitBit ;D I have just had my 2nd att at iui :) dh and i were lucky because we dont have to pay ! we live in the bedfordshire area and been ttc fo five years , but I think you can get it on the NHS, if you ttc for 4 years (it could be less) it all depends on were you live, which is very unfair. We get 6 go,s altogether ..I had arouned 5 inj but not everyone has them .I was given tamoxifen first, but my follies did not grow big enough but with the fsh inj they did ;D ;D.I had about 3 scans but it can be different each time!! I dont no the success rate but anything is better than the 1% rate they gave us :( GOODLUCK to you both ^bye^ sharon
