I'm doing my 4th IUI this month. Here is my chart
So far I've done only Clomid + IUI or natural + IUI. DH has low count and volume. I plan to do another next month if this month doesn't work and then head on over to another doctor for possibly a few IUI's with trigger or injectibles and monitoring, but first we'll see what dh's counts are at now. If they're super low, I may save myself the trouble and start planning on IVF. (This current IUI we weren't able to get a count because I O'd on a weekend and for whatever reason, the lab doesn't do counts on weekends.)
Anyway, I have a very limited IF benefit with my insurance. The actual IUI is 400 something, the wash is 100 something, and then you have the Clomid or Femara or whatever drugs you may take. My insurance does some sort of 'discount adjustment' with the clinic (don't understand it - it's an HMO) and I actually in the end only pay like $150 for each IUI and wash together. My lifetime max is $2,000 for my insurance and it won't cover ANY IVF. And with DH's low count, we'll need to do ICSI if we do IVF, so the cost will be upper teens (of thousands). Paying that much for a pregnancy doesn't bother me - it's the fear of paying that much for a BFN that scares me!
