My 1st IUI experience with Dr Adilah, this post was long overdue to published...I am sorry though and I am trying to relax and think some HAPPY thoughts everyday.
The details of my IUI as follows:
Date: 23 Jan 2013
Time: 8.15am /11.15am
Venue: IVF Clinic & Dr Adilah's Clinic
As usual, we arrived at hospital around 8am, then straight away walk to IVF clinic for hubby to donate his sperm for "washing" process. The process will take about 2 hours, so we decided to register at Dr's clinic, the later went for breakfast. I was told to keep a full bladder for the procedure.
By 11, we were back at the clinic and we were called for the procedure. the nurse showed us a semen container labelled with my name to confirm that the sperm belongs to us. Dr Adilah shared the result of the semen analysis and explained the necessary info before proceed to the procedure.By the way, I injected Ovidrel 2 days i.e. 36 hours before the procedure.
After that, Dr began the procedure by inserting a speculum into me...felt slightly discomfort but painless. Next, she showed us a very thin and flexible catheter to be inserted into the cervix and explained that the washed sperm then will injected through it. She had some difficulties to insert the catheter into me...then she asked me to relax and think something happy. And tried again, but this time, she asked the nurse to do ultrasound and she will insert the catheter by viewing on the screen.
Thanks to Allah, this time she managed to insert the catherer and she prayed "Bismillah"and inject the sperm into my cervix. I also recite few "Doa" that moment.
Done!! Alhamdulillah....the procedure just took about 15 minutes. Really, I couldnt believe that everything was over. We were directed to another room for me to lay for half an hour before Dr releases me to go home.
I was precribed a supply of Uterogeston (to be inserted via vagina) and Dr asked to do the BetaHCG blood test after 2 weeks.
the result, i write in the next entry Part 2: My 1st IUI Journey.
