Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) Thread 4
« on: January 09, 2012, 10:41:24 PM »
hi mga sis, gumawa na ko ng thread 4 kasi hindi na makapag post dun sa thread 3.  Ano na balita sa inyo mga sis?  pa share naman ng mga experience nyo? 

Ako, we had our IUI this cycle.  3 consecutive days na OB visit.

1st day - Follicle monitoring maliit lang ang follicle sa right but sa left ok ang sizes may 2 dominant
              isang 22cm at 26cm then nag inject kami ng pregnyl 5000iu.

2nd day - FM ulit lumaki lalo yung follicles naging 32cm and 36cm then nag proceed na kami
               ng IUI + another shot og 5000iu pregnyl

3rd day - FM ulit, nakita na nagrupture na yung follies.  Ngayon 2WW kami.
In God's perfect time!!!

hi sis jhoanne!  ayan dito hindi na tayo OT...

So yun nga, ako this is my 4th IUI total, but my first one since after my LIT sessions. 

days 2 to 5, i took Clomid 50mg.

Follicle monitoring on days 8 and 10.  Buti na lang my OB prefers to do the follicle monitoring herself para she can make decisions on the spot if needed.  Mas mura pa sa kanya kasi nakapackage.  :)

I had my pregnyl shot on day 11, IUI on day 12.

got my faint positive on day 28.  day 34 had my first ultrasound, and saw the gestational sac.  :)

right now, were still closely monitoring the development kasi medyo mabagal ata.  i'm supposed to be almost 7 weeks na by now if i go by my last menstrual period, but latest ultrasound shows that i'm at 5 weeks and 3 days pa lang.  My OB is still optimistic, will have an ultrasound ulit in 1 week to make sure that a baby has developed.

Pray with me mga sis ha!

Hi mga sis,                                                                                                                                                                                 

I'll have my first try to iui This month.  I'm praying na the result will be positive kasi super disappointing talaga when you see the negative result, super draining..  Right now I'm on clomid for 5 days and nakaka 4 shots of gonal-f na ko.  On Friday be back to my ob for an ultrasound and I think another 2 shots of gonal.  Did prolactine, fsh and oh on Monday.  The results are ok naman daw according to my ob. 

Before transferring to my new ob medyo Nama Abakan na us hubby for work up treatments. Almost 4 years ago kasi every cycle ko for 6 mos around 30-40k Bastia naming hubby for fertility mess and shots and fm.  Now grabe, kakalula the expenses, mukhang abut in us 60-70k but with iui na.  But still super expensive pa din. 

Sana talaga the iui will work for us kasi we wanted to have a new baby na din, 3 years old na din kasi 1st born namin.  PCOS din pala kasi ko that's why having a hard time to conceive.

nakalimutan ko pala ilagay yung cycle days yung 1st day ng FM namin is Day 14, yung 2nd day is 15 same day ng IUI namin and lastly day 16 nakita sa ultrasound na nagrupture na ang follicles.  CD 20 ko na ngayon.


sis mizizlim - may nabasa ako dito din sa GT na pag may APAS late nga daw ang development ni baby, APAS ka din ba?  baka need mo mag IVIG or Intralipid Infusion para makahabol si baby sa gestational week nya.  Yung last pregnancy ko 2 weeks din delayed si baby kaya hinintay din namin ang development nya but unfortunately wala na talaga. 

Dont worry sis everything will be alright, wag ka mastress makakasama kay baby yan.  Will pray for both of you.  Be safe and healthy  :)

In God's perfect time!!!

sis jhoanne, yes apas din ako. i've had LiT na treatment na and hindi naman nirecommend sakin ng dr. ang ivig ang intralipids.

ganun pala yun pag apas? di ko alam yun. thanks for the info. :)

btw, can you share with us yung experience mo nga pala with iui in the LIT thread? you mentioned that you didnt have sperm washing and that you did the IUI sa clinic ng OB right?

magkano inabot yung procedure sayo?

sakin kasi sa Victory ART lab ginawa, and may sperm washing. 

sa ibang mga sis, saan nyo pinagawa IUI and how much inabot?

hi sis, about sa IVIG and intralipids depende siguro sa situation ng patient kasi sa amin nabanggit nya aside sa tinanong ko talaga sya if need namin magpa ganon.  Magpapa ganito daw kami if mataas talaga ang NKC ko so baka depende talaga sa patient.

about naman dun sa late development ng baby, dito ko nabasa yun eh sa APAS thread.

sa victory art pala IUI mo sis kala ko sa clinic lang ni OB, gusto ko din mag try ng IUI sa ibang OB pag namiss namin this month eh.

about naman dun sa IUI ko, sa clinic lang kami nag IUI kahit before dun lang din namin ginawa (naka 2 IUI na kami kasama yung ngayon).  Ang protocol is take Ovamit day 3 to 7 3 x  dy then FM ng day 14 tapos ok naman sila follies ininjectkan ako ng Pregnyl (pinabili pa namin sa Saudi) tapos kinabukasan FM ulit lumaki lalo sila follies and we decided na magproceed na to IUI. Ang procedure naman is hihiga ka sa bed then insert speculum tapos insert ng catheter then iinject na yung sperm (we did not do sperm washing kasi wala services yung hospital for that) pero inassure naman ni OB na safe yun.  Then after that naghintay pa ako ng 1hour saka pa lang tinanggal yung catheter.  For me na mababa ang pain threshold sobrang sakit talaga from opening ng cervix para makaaccess sa uterus yung catheter tapos i have to wait 1 hour pa sobra yung contraction iyak talaga ako ng iyak sabi ko nga sa husband ko kinabukasan nag eskandalo ako sa clinic eh.

Actually, before pa ako magpa IUI nag search na ako sa net and i find out na tama naman yung procedure aside sa sperm washing.  Yung 1 hour na waiting time is to make sure na nakalangoy na ang sperm is OB's way of assurance na lang.  Yung catheter used for me is tama naman according sa readings ko nagtataka lang talaga ako bakit sya masakit maybe because hindi na wash ang sperm kasi sabi sa nabasa ko important daw ma wash ang sperm to make sure na healthy ang makakapasok sa uterus and para walang contractions.  Pero all in all kinaya ko naman yung procedure he he he.  Kinabukasan ang FM ulit kasi sabi pag hindi pa nag burst ang follies mag IUI ulit luckily nagburst na sila sabi ng OB nadinig daw yung iyak ko ng follies the other night ha ha ha.

about sa expenses naman, wala kami binayad sa OB kasi family friend sya (ninang ni hubby sa binyag and ninang namin sa kasal) but may expenses din kami kasi nag take ako ng Ovamit and nag pregnyl kami plus yung syringe and catheter.  Ito yung breakdown:

Ovamit (3xaday) 15pcs                  1,500.00
pregnyl shot  (2 ampules x 275.00)    552.00
Ultrasounds                                   1,315.00
catheter and syringe                        130.00
total                                             3,497.00

Hi sis, yes si OB ang ngsuggests kasi paalis narin si hubby and sabi niya try lang namin. Knkwentuhan nga rin  niya ako about her sister in law who went to dr.lim for LIT & got successful IVF in taichung.

Breakdown of expenses
Victory Art: 6000 (sperm washing)
Dr's fee: 13000 (ob in makati med)
If kasama ang others:
Follicle monitoring: 3100++ (makati med) mas mura sa iba i think
Duphaston: 20pcs (i forgot the price sa mercury)
Clostil: 10 pcs (nakalimutan as well)
Pregnyl shot: 1600 (day before IUI)

Wala ng HSG which is pabor sa akin to cut the  cost. I have my last monitoring bukas, bigyan daw ako meds tomorrow. Will update bukas mga sisses

ako din sa Victory ART.  Sabi kasi ng OB ko, factor din daw yung facilities sa successful IUI/IVF.  Kasi minsan daw depende din sa mga tao na humahawak ng specimens e.  Sabi nya mataas na daw ang success rate ng Victory kaya dun nya din gusto pinapagawa.  Specially daw kung IVF, magagaling na daw kasi yung mga embryologist sa Victory.

Meron na din center for Infertility sa Fort Global daw e.  Pero mas prefer pa din daw nya Victory kasi nga may napatunayan na kung baga.  Ang founder pala nito is Dr. Pastorfide.

total ko for IUI procedure is 16k.  6k sa Victory, 10k kay dra.

thanks sis pink_blush01!  sana nga magtuloy tuloy itong pregnancy ko.  :)

after IUI, ang naramdaman ko lang na kakaiba is nagugutom ako agad.  :)  and i distinctly remember that this started 11 days after IUI.  kasi nasa labas ako nun, 10am pa lang bigla akong nagutom na as in nagiingay yung tyan ko.  :)  since that day upto now, nagkakaron ako ng hunger pangs sa umaga.  e hindi ako ganyan before e.  usually nga ako, i have mini breakfast lang tapos late lunch. 

pero the 10 days prior that, wala akong naramdaman na kakaiba.  pati boobs ko that day lang nagstart sumakit.

yung sa pagkaantukin, nafifeel ko din yan ngayon.  may PM nap na ako, tapos ang aga ko pa natutulog sa gabi!  pero, nagiging super maaga din ako nagigising, like mga 5:30AM.  tapos makakatulog pa ulit ako after nun.  haha ang batugan ko.  :)

good luck sayo sis!  malay mo yang antok na yan naman yung sign for you.  how many days ago did you have your IUI?

go visit an immuno sis, sa tulad na tin may m/c history dapat lage tayo namomonitor. Sana nga good sign. Masyado pang maaga to tell masyado lang akong exagg at masyado ako nag f-feeling na preggy hahaha. January 14 lang ako ng IUI. hopefully magandang timings, had my 3rd follicle monitoring and i have corpus luteum na 3 sa left ovary ko. sabi ni ob good signs and pray hard na may na meet siyang sperm cell at ma fertilize siya. Good thing lang, ob is so supportive and napaka positive niya sa lahat ng aspect. kaya ang gaan niyang ka work-up.
