After my DIUI in July 2003, I was convinced it hadnt worked. I think about 9 days after IUI, we had sex (yes, I am sad enough to remember everyday of my 2ww!! ) Anyway, got a BFN 13dpIUI, but then 15dpIUI, I got 2 very dark lines!
I was so shocked I threw the test in the bin, convinced that it was negative- in the end, I rooted it out, and went on the clearblue website, just to check!
Best of luck,
I remember reading years ago whilst ttc naturally that the woman having an orgasm after the man actually helped the sperm to get to the right place ......in my case it would have been like a suction tank .......so i guess the contractions that an orgasm causes could help with implantation
Good luck to everyone....if you try it or not
Only time I had one in 2ww was when I didn't do txt and we were going for adoption. To be truthful - always too anxious and tense in txt 2ww. Maybe I should rethink!!!!! Hadn't thought about it until Hollie posed the question!!
When I asked my clinic why they said to avoid sex during the 2ww, I was told it's because contractions during orgasm can interfere with implantation. They're good for the time around ovulation, but not while you're waiting. I know it stinks, but I plan to abstain for my first IVF cycle. At least I won't think 'what if?'.
OMG - It seems that it is better to have orgasms than not if the poll results are anything to go by.
I haven't had tx yet but had already decided not to have sex in the 2ww just in case it caused a problem for embryos but reading the results in here it seems that it certainly wouldn't be a problem and could even help !!!!!
