Ohhhhh it is so nice to be able to talk to other women who have a similar situation ... when I tell my girlfriends they are in disbelief. I am 35 yrs old and have been trying to conceive for the last three years. It was durning this process they discovered my UD. After running several test it appeared that I was only having intercousre on my left side ( as my right side was tucked further up and basically inexessable) but my fallopian tube on my left side was blocked at the end. All this to say my husbands sperm never gets to my right side b/c he can only acess my left side. I am getting ready to go in for an IUI and I am confused about which when to start taking the medicine they have perscribed if I am trying to acheive pregnancy in my right side ( we have not run any tests on that uterus and I am hoping that the fallopian tubes attatched to my right uterus are functioning ) I am wondering if anyone has experience with this. It is now August first and I will be getting my period from my left side this month. My question is do I start with the medicine for IUI this month during the cycle on my left side to prepare for getting prgnant on my rightside ??? Or do I wait and start on my right side next month - this option seems less likely to me. If anyone has any insight please advise.

Hello, I just completed my second IUI last Friday and am currently in the 2WW.  It really depends what medication they are having you take. I have been through all of this alot so if I am telling you something you nkow I appologize!  Normally you will take clomid or letrozole to make you produce a follicle (this holds the egg) Usually your doctor has you start this on day 3 or 4 of your cycle. On day 10-14 they usually have you come in for a follicle check to see if you have any that are mature. If you have a mature one (14mm-21mm) [[note: when it is at 21mm that is when your body produces LH surge to make you ovulate on your own with out medication]] .. but if your follicle is between 14-21mm they will usually have you take an injection called ovidryl which forces you to ovulate between 36-40 hours after the injection that is when they schedule your IUI. For instance I had the injection at 11pm on July 24th and had the IUI on the 26th at 10 am. After this is over they usually have you wait a couple of days (different doctors have had me wait different amounts of time) until you start taking progesterone (sustains pregnancy if there is one) NOTE about specific meds: OVIDRYL is the pregnancy hormone so a pregnancy test will show positive for almost 10-12 days after injection. I wouldnt read a pregnancy test as positive until day 14. However you could take tests everyday to "test it out" of your system so you know if a positive is a true positive. if you want to email me to talk go ahead, I dont checkon here often:( Id love to know how it goes for you!

Also are you certain you have your period every other month for each side? I have never heard of this, I have it every month on both at the same time. My worry is your endometrium is not new and fresh if it stays a whole month without mensturating? I would really have a fertility specialist track your cycle with follicle tracking. That way they can measure your endometrium to be sure it is healthy and at least 6mm so an egg can implant
