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
Depends: First that depends on the diagnosis. If the problem is lack of ovulation, then it also depends on whether you take Clomid (clomiphene) and ovulate or dont ovulate. Usually i recommend if you ovulate 3-4 times on Clomid (clomiphene) and are not pregnant to either have more evaluation or change treatment. ...Read more
Unknown: There are no good long term studies looking at the safety of testosterone or clomiphene in men. However, clomiphene works in a more "natural" way to increase testosterone levels, and therefore may be safer. You should always do multiple baseline tests for testosterone, and have clear cut symptoms associated with testosterone deficiency before starting either medication. ...Read more
Testosterone: Testosterone is higher in AM than PM. 317 in the afternoon is probably normal. In the AM, a value of 317 is borderline. Low T can be from obesity, many medications, elevated prolactin, etc. See your doctor, but do not jump into testosterone treatment without a thorough workup. There are many side effects from testosterone overtreatment. ...Read more

Ttc for a year. Been prescribed clomid (clomiphene). Ovulate every month so what benefits will i gain trying this drug? Partner has low sperm count.
More Importantly...: Most surveys suggest that the practice of masturbation is quite common, especially (not surprisingly) amongst men. There are stress relieving benefits to orgasm, and some studies have shown improved sleep. There are no scientific concerns regarding ill effects from it; you must consider your own beliefs first. ...Read more
What are chances for getting std/ HIV from one and only unprotected sex ( men with women vaginal)?
Unprotected sex: Chances of getting std/hiv from just one episode of unprotected sex are much greater than if you never had unprotected sex. Plus, it places your future partners at greater risk, too. Of course, this assumes that you know nothing about your partner's status. You can't catch something that your partner doesn't have but that implies an element of trust. Just in case, wear a condom each/every time. ...Read more
Hi question for fertility doctors if women don't ovulate on day 14, do most ovulate later or earlier, what is most common?
Varies: If your cycles are regular, i.e. Every 28-30 days, then you most likely are ovulating around day 14. If your cycles are longer or shorter this can vary when you ovulate. Take the length of your cycle and subtract 14 days and that's probably when you are ovulating. If your cycles are very irregular, and approach 40 days apart or more then you probably aren't ovulating and you should see your md. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Clomid (clomiphene) and men: Clomid (clomiphene) use in men, as in women, produces an increase in the gonadotropins lh ; fsh (the hormones which stimulate the gonads). If a man has poor testicular function due to low lh ; fsh (as characterized by low sperm count and/or low testosterone), prolonged daily use of high doses of Clomid (clomiphene) (or its twin, tamoxifen) may correct this. ...Read more

Yes, it can work.: Just as Clomiphene can stimulate the inadequately functioning ovary, it can stimulate the inadequately functioning testicle in some men. The reason for the inadequate function is key as not every male will be able to respond. An evaluation of the male is important. The other difference is that if Clomiphene is going to work for a woman, you'll know within 2 weeks. For men, it will take 3-6 months. ...Read more
Clomifene: Clomifene citrate has been found very effective in the treatment of secondary male hypogonadism in many cases this has shown to be a much more attractive option than testosterone replacement therapy (trt) in many cases because of the reduced cost and convenience of taking a pill as opposed to testosterone injections or gels. Unlike traditional trt it also does not shrink the testes. Res. ...Read more
None for most men: Clomiphene citrate is an estrogen antagonist. For women who are estrogen dominant, this can cause multiple side effects as the Clomiphene shifts the estrogen to androgen (male hormone) balance away from the estrogen. In men, shifting that same balance away from estrogen and toward the androgens is not a problem as men are naturally androgen dominant. Most men have virtually no side effects. ...Read more
Male infertility: Clomid (clomiphene) is a selective estrogen receptor modulator. In certain males it can increase the production of lh and fsh by the pituitary gland which then stimulates the testicle to produce more testosterone. The testosterone produced by the testicle can then increase male secondary sexual characteristics such as facial hair. Clomid (clomiphene) is not used very often to treat male infertiilty. ...Read more
