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

Took Clomid (clomiphene) 50 mg, 5 gonal injection, pregnyl injection. Did sex in ovulation days . Why i may not be pregnant?

Took Clomid (clomiphene) 50 mg, 5 gonal injection, pregnyl injection. Did sex in ovulation days . Why i may not be pregnant?

Common: The in general the chance of not being pregnant is much higher than the chance of being pregnant. You may have a 10% chance of being pregnant and a 90% chance of not being pregnant. That is because the treatment does not affect fertilization, take into account egg quality, help the sperm, or deal with the tubes. So the vast majority of women will not get pregnant at any given treatment. ...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

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

What are the ovulation success rates on low (50iu) FSH injections in Clomid (clomiphene) resistance patients?

What are the ovulation success rates on low (50iu) FSH injections in Clomid (clomiphene) resistance patients?

Good rates, long tim: Fsh will usually stimulate the ovaries very well. The concern is that too many eggs will stimulate and that is why we use a low dose protocol when not doing ivf. The key is patience. It may take 3-4 weeks of injections before the ovulation will occur. If little effect the dose is increased. Sometimes too many eggs will become mature anyway and the cycle will need to be cancelled. ...Read more

No big difference: Studies show pregnancy rates are identical starting cc on cd 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5. The main difference is starting later its less likely to have a persistent cyst from the past cycle. For patients not monitored by ultrasound cd 5 may be a better choice, with monitoring it makes little-to- no difference. ...Read more

Clomid (clomiphene) help to increase FSH and LH to trigger ovulation, FSH and LH produce estrogen for lining , but why some drs say Clomid (clomiphene) will thin lining?

Antiestrogen: Clomid (clomiphene) works by blocking estrogen in your brain and pituitary gland. This makes the hormones rise which stimulate your eggs to grow. Unfortunately, it also blocks estrogen at the cervix and at your uterine lining. This can harm cervical mucus and make your uterus less receptive. ...Read more
