Dear Embryologist

I hope you can help - if not who might I ask?

I've completed 2 cycles of IUI (both failures) and I rang the clinic (NHS) for a 3rd prescription for Clomid yesterday and the Dr wants to see us for a review.

We want to try IUI again before considering IVF. When we saw the doctor at first when he recommended IUI he said they would normally try IUI 4 times, and when I pushed it they said yes - they would in some cases allow 6 in total, but would usually review after 4.

Is it normal to have a review after 2 IUIs? Or could there be another reason?

You should try at least 3 IUI before worrying about a review.

There amy be other rreasons as I do not have your notes but overall it seems a bit early for a review to me.

Good luck!!
