Success Rates-ICU with clomid and trigger shot

Hi Ladies!
As I posted this week, I got my devastating BFN on Thursday after my first natural IUI.  I am now back on the horse!  My AF started yesterday-I start clomid tomorrow, go for my ultrasound and trigger shot on 3-10 with IUI to follow on 3-11, as long as my follicles are good.

Anyone had success with this or any words of wisdom??  I was feeling so down this week after my BFN but am now trying to be positive starting my new cylce.

Thanks girls!

My dr told me that success rates are around 8% with injectibles (like Follistim) and iui. I would think Clomid would have about the same success rate.  If you notice, clinics publish their ivf success rates, but not their iui success rates...
That said, I do know someone who got pregnant with iuis twice (on the second try each time).  She was on pretty high doses of injectibles (225 follistim).
I would ask your dr about his or her success rates.
Good luck!

Hi there-
thanks for your response.  Unfortunately we did 4 IUIs and none of them were successful so we moved to IVF.  That did work for us on the 1st try!  

Are you starting IUI"s?  I know they are very successful for many people-my issue ended up being the quality of my eggs, which my RE would have never been able to know without doing IVF. So I am wishing you the best of luck!!!
