My partner and I have been referred to our local hospital for IUI however after our consultation I am feeling really down and confused. The consultant basically told us to try artificial insemination at home (which I don't want to do as I think it will affect our already crappy sex life due to the clinicalness of it all), the reason for this is that she says the drugs used for IUI to promote ovulation and increase fertility chances make Endo really bed...she says that I will be in so much pain having these drugs for 4 cycles (that's all we can have) that I will not be able to cope, wont be able to work and she said "why would you put your body though that?" (ermmmm....to have a baby?!)
I really don't want to go straight to IVF as then we only have that 1 chance.
Has anyone with continual endo pain (mines is daily and I am on Morphine, Fentanyl, diclofenac and tramadol) had any experience of these drugs and were they positive or negative...I just don't fully believe her saying that I will DEFINATELY be in all that pain so looking for some real life experiences.
Sorry if I have rambled just wanted to get this question out there before I changed my mind as part of me doesn't want to know in case it is bad news...but I really want to hear the truth.
Thank you ladies.
