Failed IUI cycle

Hi everyone. I am new to this so please bear with me. I have just experienced the most stressful 2ww and tested this morning following iui. It was negative. I feel totally crushed I just don't know what to do. My husband is trying to say all the right things but inside I know he is very sad too. How do you get over this and pick yourself up again? I feel sick and very tired. My husband said that we can try I feel next time but I don't know how anyone survives this roller coaster. Any help and a big hug would be really appreciated right now. Thank you. Kate

So sorry to hear this news, all i can say is lean on each other for support and treat yourselfs. After our ivf failed we went away nothing flash just some time in the lakes we had.

Must important talk to each other 😊.

This is such a roller coaster of a journey but hopefully worth it in the end.

Sending u hugsxx


Hi Kate I am so sorry I totally understand how you feel. I have had two failed iui's this year and thought that it was going to work. I am now moving on to ivf. Treat yourself today and do something that will make you happy even if it short lived. It's a horrible feeling of failure. I cried for almost a week after and keep thinking why didn't it work!!!! X


Bfn are rubbish, look after yourself X


Are you sure it's def a negative? If you haven't had your period you should wait a few days and try again x


I was like this with my first failed icsi last Dec it was heart breaking and I felt like giving up I nearly considered counselling, u will get through it I didn't think I would but I did it's very hard, I took nearly a year out and I am just starting injections to start my first frozen cycle, try not to think to much and don't give up people have lots of failed cycles before a positive, nothin anybody will say will make u feel better but all us ladies can hold onto is hope xxx thoughts r with u


I'm so sorry to hear that the treatment - such a bitter pill to take. Allow yourself to grieve this disappointment. A day at a time. This journey can really take it out of you. Maybe give yourself a breather. Do what feels right for you. We are all here for you. I hope you feel better soon. Take care X
