June's Story
posted July 11, 2005

As I am reading these stories I am more scared than ever to begin our IUI (intra-uterine insemination) journey.

My husband and I have been married for a little over four years we "immediately started trying to conceive". We did not go all crazy with the ovulation tests or doctor's appointments until four years into our marriage. I finally made a doctor's appointment assuming that our problem was with me -- my husband has a seven year old daughter. From the tests performed, we discovered that I am ovulating and all my tests are normal.

We then went to the next step we had my husband do a sperm count -- to "rule it out". We were very surprised to discover that it actually was him --he has a low sperm count and low motility (not strong enough to reach my cervix).

Our next step was to start seeing a fertility doctor for both of us, but before we could get into the doctor's appointment I ended up pregnant! Unfortunately, we lost the baby four days later. We then had to wait two long normal periods before the doctor would even see us.

We had our first appointment on monday June 20th and were told that we would be going through the IUI procedure but first have to have a blockage test done to see if my tubes are blocked. I am crossing my fingers that they are not. We should be going through our first procedure on or around the 2nd of August.
