Hello! My wife and I are starting the process of IUI and I am curious if anyone has: 1. Gone through Oregon Reproductive Medicine? 2. Used NW CryoBank or OHSU sperm bank? 3. Used Clomid? 4. The IUI process...how long did it take you? Thank you everyone who is willing to share your experiences. We are so excited to start our family. Mrs. Selfridge :)
If you're doing clomid, you'll take pills for 5 days on probably days 3-7 of your cycle, then you'll probably go in to the docs office around day 9 and they'll do a transvaginal ultrasound and look to see how the follicles are growing. You'll probably go back around day 11 or 12 and then get a shot of medication to make you ovulate and they'll do the IUI 36 hours later. Your mileage may vary.
The IUI itself is straight forward. Find cervix, insert sperm.
Have you done any testing yet? When do you start?

But wait, could it really be true?

Thank you for sharing! We are at the very early stages, getting ready for our consult. I have asked different clinics what the average process was like and they do not give much info- so thank you! This is what I was hoping to hear about. Really looking forward to getting started :-D
Hi Mrs. S! Congrats on starting your family! I'm also in the IUI process in Oregon. We're going through OHSU, but I've heard great things about ORM, too. We looked at the OHSU sperm bank, but since it's pretty small we didn't find a donor who matched my hubby's background, so we went with a larger national bank. Dealing with the OHSU team (who prepares the sample when we come in) has been smooth and easy, though, in case you do use their bank. We've only gone through one cycle, which didn't work- the second will probably be sometime this week. My doc wants me to try 3 natural cycles (since they're regular), then move on to Clomid. Please feel free to send me a personal message if you want to talk about it more! Good luck! :)
