Yes: Sounds like adequate sperm count and two nice mature follicles were seen on ultrasound. This points to a good chance. Try not to worry too much about the situation, which creates unneeded stress. Best of luck!

Yes and good luck: typically the pregnancy rates depending on what ovulation induction medications were used will range between 8 to 18%. Once there are at least 5 million motile sperm in the inseminate The chances are very good; best of luck to you
