This is our first month using Ferma,Menopr and the Trigger shot along with an IUI, what are our chances of concieving?

An IUI (otherwise known as an

An IUI (otherwise known as an interuterine insemination) is where a very thin flexible catheter is inserted through the cervix and injects washed sperm directly into the uterus. The average success rate runs about 20% per month, but the numbers run 2-26%. Your odds are better with injectibles, but, no one knows exactly how much better. The reason you are doing IUI plays a factor, too. Do you usually ovulate or do you have sperm issues?

You may want to consider moving to a natural stim IVF if sperm factor plays a role. Injectibles are so expensive, I wouldn't do more than 3 IUI cycles at most. If your insurance covers IVF, I would consider moving to IVF sooner rather than later because of the higher risk of multiples.
