IUI success rate

Hello Ladies I have feeling that it's going to come to IUI for hubby & I to get pregnant, so I was wondering  what the success rate is??  Have any of you heard of a successful pregnancy after 1 IUI??  

As far as I know there are no issues with me but my hubby had a really low sperm count.  We see a urologist at the end of next month (Nov).  

If anyone has any suggestions to help it would be appreciated!

Thanks ladies!

there is about a 25% chance to get pregnant with each attempt.  So yes, it may occur in the first attempt.

I got pregnant on my second IUI, but lost it.  Got pregnant again after the 4th IUI and again lost it.  Am 4 months pregnant now after the 6th IUI, and looks like this one is just fine.

I would say if all is timed right (and assuming hubby does ok) you should be successful within 4 or so tries.

I think they say give it 6 tries for success but it really depends on your age and situation and also hubby's sperm. If he has a low count, it could take longer... but really at the end of the day, it's all a crap shoot.  IUI definitely will increase your chances vs trying naturally tho especially if you're using medication to grow more than 1 follicle.  good luck!
