Clomid vs Clomid with IUI

So, I have been TTC for 2 years. All of mine and my husbands labs and procedures have checked out normal. I’m type 1 diabetic and Aside from my A1C being slightly elevated for REI (7.5 - they want me under 7) they are giving me the option to either do just Clomid or Clomid and <a href="">IUI</a>.

My gyn didn’t want to start me on Clomid because I ovulate and have a period every month. She was worried about me being high risk and having multiples. So, obviously, I’m frustrated because it’s been 2 years but I’ve never tried Clomid so I’m wondering if I should just go with the cheaper option first... or would it just be better to go ahead and do it with the <a href="">IUI</a>?
