They say that frozen sperm lives only 12-24 hrs. Knowing my luck it will probably only live for 12 hrs. Would it be safe to have the IUI at 24 hrs??

Thanks

Nicole

Hi---
I know your frustration all too well. Science can only get us so far. But the advice on the timing from the experts above sounds great to me...

Hang in there...it will happen. (I hate it when people say that but it is true).

Both my IUI's were at 36 hours post hcg trigger.

Even fresh prepared sperm only live for an average of 6-12 hours up to a maximum of 24 hours (inside the body they can live in ewcm for 2-3 days, so there's a big difference)

If you'd tried altering the timings, have ruled out some of the other possible causes and made lifestyle changes then I guess you have no choice but to keep trying for a bit longer.

Statistically most people will become PG within 12 cycles, I know that's not very reassuring, but you still have good chances of it working.

The only thing that you might want to consider asking about is doing 2 insems, some clinics have reported a 6% increase in success rates. I don't know how much of an option this is for you though.

You're in my thoughts Nicki (((hugz)))

Also, yes, even being perfectly healthy, it does take time to conceive - especially the first one. I WORKED for 9 cycles to get pg with my first son and I have no fertility issues (or didn't then at least!). It WILL happen - just try to be patient.

I agree with the 24hrs recomendation, my successful IUI was done at 26 hrs post trigger.
Good Luck!
