You get bloodwork and you’re given instructions on what to do. But you’re also reading online about the different drugs different dosages and you’re wondering if the drugs you’re given or the dosage is going to work. And then there’s the procedure itself, doctors throw out these numbers out at you, and there’s something about “washing the sperm.” It seems so overwhelming and so confusing.
So in this episode, we’re going to talk about:
the different types of drugs that are used and why a doctor will use each one
Then, we’re going to talk about step by step the IUI procedure itself and what you should expect.
I hope to offer some clarity so that it doesn’t seem like a huge mystery. And the next time you’re in a doctor’s office, you’ll know exactly what they’re talking about.
