How to increase LH level naturally without going through Clomid (clomiphene) and IUI in order to conceve?

How to increase LH level naturally without going through Clomid (clomiphene) and IUI in order to conceve?

What is Question?: Lh is the hormone that triggers ovulation and starts the genetic process called meiosis to make the egg have half the chromosomes. We usually use lh treatment to trigger ovulation as in nature (we usually use hcg, a similar hormone). If you do not ovulate then you do not have lh for ovulation with other hormone imbalance. I suggest you see your doc and review your situation for options. Best. ...Read more

Diminished ovarian reserve with low egg supply. Would u rec Clomid (clomiphene) with IUI or injectable with iui. I am 35 years old?

Yes, IVF is better: At age 39 with DOR, you may try few cycles Clomid (clomiphene) IUI, but IVF is a better option. The reason is with DOR, you don't have many embryos to work with. On the other hand, if you do IVF, you may bank embryos and do FET later. At age 39, I strongly recommend to do Pre-implantation genetic screening (PGS) of your embryos prior to transfer. It will increase your change of pregnancy and reduce miscarriage ...Read more

I have pcos my hubby has low sperm count, is monitered cycle with Clomid (clomiphene) hCG & IUI enough or would injectable meds work better/faster to get pregnant?

Depends: If you are ovulating with the Clomid (clomiphene) then the other meds would not likely offer any benefit. If you are not ovulating, then there may be a better chance for ovulating and conceiving with the more aggressive medications. Good luck. ...Read more

I have pcos and my husbands semen analysis was low but motility was good I am in my first monitered cycle of Clomid (clomiphene) w/hgc & IUI what are our chances?

I have pcos and my husbands semen analysis was low but motility was good I am in my first monitered cycle of Clomid (clomiphene) w/hgc & IUI what are our chances?

Depends: Ideally we like to see 5 million total motile sperm after the wash for an IUI specimen. If you have a good IUI specimen and you respond well to Clomid (clomiphene) then your chance of conception should be about the same as a fertile couple: about 15% per cycle, about 60% after 6 cycles. ...Read more

How many inseminations per cycle will be given to a women using Clomid (clomiphene) (or injectables) with iui?

How many inseminations per cycle will be given to a women using Clomid (clomiphene) (or injectables) with iui?

One or two per cycle: One to two per cycle - if one insemination (iui) per cycle we schedule it on the day of expected ovulation (egg release), if two we do one IUI the day before ovulation as well. Two IUI is a slightly higher pregnancy rate than one, but not double. Have intercourse 2-3 times a week as well. Your wife should see a rei (infertility specialist) if not pregnant after three cycles of clomid (clomiphene). ...Read more

Should Clomid (clomiphene) be combined with IUI in couples with unexplained infertility? Or is it okay to initiallly go with Clomid (clomiphene) on its own?

Studies suggest...: Clomid (clomiphene) ovulation induction is combined with IUI based on evidence from older studies showing statistical improvement in success unexplained infertility.

IUI only: Peak fertility is usually a few days after finishing clomid (clomiphene). You should test for ovulation. Iui alone can result in pregnancy, so sex is not necessary. Sex before providing a semen sample for IUI may result in a lower quality sperm count. ...Read more

It's common using Clomid (clomiphene) to have decreased mucus prior to ovulation, and an IUI may be needed, how can I detect this?

Cervical mucus: Usually around the time of ovulation cervical mucus is very apparent. It is usually long and stringy. But sometimes on Clomid (clomiphene) the mucus is decreased somewhat. Usually the mucus is thicker and less penetrable. Sometimes I recommend patient's to use Robitussin or guaifenesin to thin mucus. ...Read more
