    Pregnancy Test 5 days after IUI?


    Hello everyone,

    I am another newbie to these boards and am on my first cycle of Gonal F with IUI. I have been trying to conceive for more than 10 years between 2 marriages, and doctors that have told me that maybe I just need to accept that I am not going to be a mother. This is now cycle day17 and I am a little perplexed... My fertility dr gave me the b/w papers for a Progesterone test 7 days after IUI and Pregnancy test 16 days after. From what I have read here this all sounds like the norm.

    Yesterday, I went to my regular physcian to obtain prescription refills and filled him in on our progress through the fertility maze. When I mentioned that we went through our first IUI procedure 5 days before, he suggested he give me a pregnancy test and would have results for me today. Does this seem strange to anyone? My results were a BFN, but I didn't really expect that the HCG would be strong enought to be detected if indeed I am pregnant.

    I realize that all of my symptoms... extremely sore breasts, cramping, moodyness, can all be from the meds, pending AF, or Pg. I figure that if sperm can survive 72 hrs... it seems too soon to do any testing.

    Can anyone comment on this experience. I am not really convinced that these results are valid so soon after the IUI.

    Thanks for reading and sharing!

    Yes this does sound very strange considering the embryo doesnt usually implant until 7-10 days after ovulation so I really wouldnt worry about that BFN at all in fact I would totally ignore those results. I hope to see you posting your BFN very soon though and please keep us posted.

    Ignore it ! My sister was almost 4 months pregnant before it showed up on a blood test. Time will tell, just relax and think positive.
