    Hi all,

    I am really devasted cos i went thru 5 times of IUI with stages of taking clomid, (maximum) injections to induce ovulation. The biggest egg size i manage to get is only 23mm which is considered the most desirable this time round, thus pinning high hope for this month since my hubby would like to have a rabbit baby to be.. But, i encountered spotting few days ago until today, my menses came... ~haiz.. tats bad news.. i really dun know how to break this bad news to him. He will definitely feel very dissappointed...

    No rabbit baby to be, fine! But what have i done wrong to deserve THIS?! What is the next step i should take? To continue IUI? Or proceed with IVF ?(which is least preferred due to the tremondous pressure cum $$) Change gynae? Change to TCM? Or any other choices? Please advise...

    i second shanna's suggestion. Try TCM to tio your womb first. My SIL had 3 failed IVF... After which she visited Eu Yan Seng's fertility specialist at Paragon before trying for the 4th time... Her baby is now 6 month old...

    Normally if you have a number of failed IUIs, the next step would be IVF.

    hey patricia,

    I took clomid in 2006 and it only took two cycles to become pregnant with my first daughter.
    Second daughter came two years later by surprise and we are currently trying for a third! [​IMG]
    Taking my first round of clomid this month
    hoping it works as quickly as last time! :D

    hope I was helpfull

    maybe you should proceed with IVF

    We are extremely lucky that we found this good doctor, Ann Tan, so maybe you should also change your gynae. . We cannot imagine getting a healthier level of care anywhere else. My wife was afraid of needles and clinics before, but then she was treated with so much care from the blood work to the IVF procedures.

    the clinic has managed to comfort her throughout the process. I feel that we were well taken care of.

    IVF will give you hope and help you to bear a child into this world. try the clinic Women Fertility & Fetal Centre and look for a specialist in Obstetrician & Gynaecologist. hope i was of help to you!
