6y no baby: I would say after 6y of trying that you should have IVF. IUI can be tried, but less likely to work. You state you have been pregnant before, but if you can't sustain pregnancy pregnancy due to uterine factors, then your only option may be surrogate. See a fertility specialist regarding all these possibilities. ...Read more

I have pcos but ovulate on clomid (clomiphene). My hubby's 1st semen anal cme as 92% abnormal sperm count. Is it diff to conceive by natural intercourse?

I have pcos but ovulate on clomid (clomiphene). My hubby's 1st semen anal cme as 92% abnormal sperm count. Is it diff to conceive by natural intercourse?

Maximum of 3 IUI's: Since your husband may have severe mfi, you may not be able to conceive naturally. If you have been ttc for over one year, see a specialist for evaluation and do no more than 3-4 iuis. After that, you may need to consider either donor sperm or the possibility of ivf with icsi (where normal sperm are selected to be injected into the egg). ...Read more

Sure: I had a patient once whose husband had a count of 400, 000 per cc with motility similar to this. She achieved four pregnancies using IUI with me. It only takes one sperm to achieve a pregnancy. Don't give up. Ever. ...Read more

Period back after 89days. Ttc for 2 years worried about my fertility. Hev a few polycytes in ovaries not pcos. What can I take to be fertile? Clomid (clomiphene)?

PCOS treatment: I doesn't seem that you are ovulating so using clomid, (clomiphene) may help to make your cycles more consistent. If necessary, you can increase the dose to 150 mg x 5 days until you ovulate. You may also benefit from using metformin if your condition warrants its use. ...Read more

How to maximize my chance of conceiving twins my next pregnancy? Does medicaid pay for clomid (clomiphene)?

No: Medicaid does not pay for Clomid (clomiphene), (clomiphene) or (to my knowledge) any form of fertility treatment. Clomid (clomiphene) cost roughly $30-50 for a cycle if you pay out of pocket. Most doctors will not prescribe Clomid (clomiphene) just to increase the chance of a multiple. Sorry. ...Read more

27yrs old. FSH 4.5 LH 5.5 but AMH 0.5 All tests done on CD3. Follicle 16mm on CD10 vaginal ultrasound. Can I concieve natrurally? What are my chances?

27yrs old. FSH 4.5 LH 5.5 but AMH 0.5 All tests done on CD3. Follicle 16mm on CD10 vaginal ultrasound. Can I concieve natrurally? What are my chances?

Still possible: There is more to achieving pregnancy than those numbers that you listed. AMH and day 3 FSH reflect ovarian reserve, how hard your body has to work to ovulate, but they are not predictive of whether or not you can become pregnant. ...Read more

Ovulating on Clomid (clomiphene) but not conceiving. Sperm count is good. Wat else cud b problem. Hw long i can be on clomid (clomiphene)?

Well: Though ovulating the rate of pregnancy is still about 15%. The Clomid can cause some cervical mucus thickening creating an issue with sperm entering the uterus. There is some evidence that Mucinex (guaifenesin) may thin the mucus. It won't hurt. Typically 3 months is about the time frame but discuss with your physician, look up risks and benefits and the doc may go an extra few months. Tubes open? ...Read more
