Diary of My IUI Cycle #4 (Spring 2012)

My husband actually gets credit for this page. Thank you honey! He thought it would be helpful for someone who hadn’t gone through IUI yet to see what a cycle can be like. Here is the information I retrieved from my spreadsheet. I highly recommend keeping a log or diary of some sort to note the days you go in for blood work , ultrasounds, doctor’s instructions, injections sites and dosages  (if applicable), or anything worthwhile noting. You could write down how you were feeling or even insurance notes. Keep in mind, this cycle below is an IUI cycle using injectable medication for me. Not all IUI cycles use injectable medications.

Day 1         1st day of full flow, menstrual cycle

Day 2         Bloods drawn (at center), transvaginal ultrasound with Dr. W, Inject 225 units of Gonal -f ® x 3 nights, Right lat to umbilicus, return visit Monday for blood work
