Thanks for writing in.
The treatment given to you is fine. There is nothing wrong with the endometrial thickness and this is fine.
The success of an IUI cycle is between 10 - 14% per cycle
The success of 3 cycles goes upto 60%. Its understandable that you are upset after the 1st cycle. Please be patient and most importantly, do not get stressed. The IUI should help about 70 to 80% of the couples to achieve a pregnancy
Hope to have answered your query
