In the past year, I have had 7 IUI's, all unmedicated. My Dr is more conservative but should I be pushing to be put on clomid?

To be honest, seven IUIs

To be honest, seven IUIs without any form of medication is pretty unusual. IUIs are not cheap and can run hundreds of dollars, if not thousands, depending on the number of ultrasounds you are having done.

I have two recommendations for you. First, sit down with your physician and ask for a game plan. What is the next step? Are there tests that should be done? Are your tubes clear? Is your partner's sperm ok?

Second, get a second opinion. Getting a second opinion may be free, but even if it isn't, the few hundred dollars may well be worth the investment. Research online - many docs do free or low-cost consultations.

Don't do one more IUI until you have a plan.
