Fertility After Ivf
Genrally not: There is always the chance that if you received HCG trigger shot and you released some eggs, there is the possibility that pregnancy could occur. However, that would probably be unlikely since you are doing ivf since you are having trouble conceiving. No harm in trying. Hope this helps. ...Read more
In vitro fertilization is an assisted reproductive technology. Ivf is a procedure used to treat fertility problems and assist with the conception of a child. During ivf mature eggs are retrieved from the ovaries and fertilized by sperm in a lab. A few days later, the fertilized egg (embryo) or eggs are implanted into the uterus. One cycle of in vitro fertilization ...Read more
Talk to surgeon: You need to ask your myomectomy surgeon as he/she will know how deeply into the uterine musculature the cuts were done to remove the fibroid(s). The repair of the uterine defect(s) determines how long it takes to heal based upon the extensiveness of the surgery and how soon you can get pregnant and carry a child without uterine rupture. ...Read more
Take Clomid (clomiphene) befor1year.test result-Prolacting18.99ng/ml,TSH3.24ulU/ml,T41.30ng/dl & husband sperm test normal(6yers try4baby)IUI or IVF suit for me?
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
IVF: An unusual question at your age. Surely if you are seeing an obstetrician for IVF, that doctor would be explaining that to you? If you are asking on behalf of someone else, she too must discuss this with her obstetrician. There should be little, if anything, to be concerned about. ...Read more
Depends: Sorry to hear this. Most common reason for cancellation, if you are otherwise healthy, is non response/inadequate response to stimulation.

5 failed IUI with letrozole, mild endo removed by laparoscopy, one miscarriage but conceived naturally after 2 yrs. IVF next or Iui with injectables?
No more IUI: Since you've failed 5 IUIs, it is no longer a good option for you, especially for someone with endometriosis. One reason patients with endometriosis not able to conceive naturally, is because the endometriosis will cause pelvic adhesion and tubal dysfunction. IVF is a much better option. If you are afraid of using drugs, you may choose natural cycle IVF or mild stimulation IVF. ...Read more
Yes: Many women will conceive on their own after failing ivf other treatments. ...Read more
Yes: Fertilization is conception. Therefore, a woman whose egg has finished being fertilized has finished conceiving. She has a one-celled "baby" which is just a fertilized egg. It splits into 2 cells, then 4 cells, then 8 cells, etc... No woman knows exactly when she conceives, in a natural pregnancy. How would she know? She can neither see it or feel it. Conception dates are therefore only estimates. ...Read more
Yes: If you still have frozen embryo, you may do fet immediately in the following cycle. If you do not have frozen embryo, you may also do mini ivf or natural cycle ivf immediately without break. ...Read more
IVF egg removal. 32 follicles only 7 eggs retrieved. Did Lupron (leuprolide) trigger and Hcg. Why so few?
Ask your doc: Many possibilities: incorrect timing (too early OR too late) or administration of hCG, bad batch of hCG, surgeon had difficulty with TVA, maybe only 7 mature follicles and the others were mid-to-small...your doctor and your embryology team are only ones who can answer what happened. Good luck with the 7, sounds good! ...Read more

Hormones: Fertility medicines are hormones that are either injected into the muscle, tablets taken by mouth, or creams/gels that are inserted into the vagina, many times a combination of them. The medication needs to be administered/taken according to a tight schedule that cannot be modified while being administered. Undergoing this type of therapy is a big commitment on the side of the patient. ...Read more
Wait: Call your md, most likely closer when you are expected to start ivf. ...Read more
Avoid stress.: During ivf cycles, generally solid advice is to follow your specialist's recommendations, minimize stress (physical and emotional), rest as long as you like, maintain hydration and balanced diet and take your Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily. Avoid saunas, all alcohol/smoking/illicit drugs and maintain a positive attitude. Best of luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

iam having addision disease from past 10yrs trying for fertility from past 4yrs.Pls suggest me what to do for baby dust.Tried 1 IVF also.
Outside body: In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) means that fertilization occurs "outside the body" (in vitro). We stimulate the woman's ovaries to mature multiple eggs. We retrieve them in the office with the woman under anesthesia to allow us to suction the eggs with a needle. We combine the sperm with the eggs and culture the embryos. We transfer 1-3 embryos based on woman's age and embryo quality. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Went to a fertility spec.he said that he will do a hyestoscopy test to see what's going on and that he dont suggest IVF because he feel like I'm om?
Possible blocked tub: A hysteroscopy tells whether the fallopian tubes which travel from the uterus to the ovaries are open. You have had 3 prior pregnancies. So at least in the past they were open. A sometime consequence of Pelvic Inflammatory Disease is that it can scar the tubes and the eggs cannot travel from the ovary down to the womb and implant and grow. It is OK to check if that is the case. If your tubes ...Read more
My husband and I visited a fertility center, after series of test, we were told he had low spem count (10 m) and that treatment recommended is IVF ?
Sorry, no: The fertilized egg must either completely separate during cell division ("identical") or the ovary must happen to release multiple oocytes which get fertilized in same time proximity ("fraternal"). Neither of these phenomena are able to be externally encouraged via natural methods. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

OHSS: OHSS does happen more often in women with PCOS undergoing stimulation with gonadotropins, like for IVF. It is still not at all common. Your actual risk depends more on your doctor and his/her protocols than on your PCOS. You need to have a talk with YOUR doctor about this, this is always a part of an informed consent. ...Read more
What is the best fertility option for a normal 20 year old female and a 21 year old male with 77% abnormal forms? Iui, IVF or icsi?
Intercourse.: For a young couple in their 20s, unless you have some kind of pathology you should be able to get pregnant fairly easily with regular intercourse. Those procedures should be reserved for people who have been unable to get pregnant for a full year and who have had a fertility work up. Are her tubes open, does she ovulate? ...Read more
