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

I have endometriosis w/ 1 failed IVF and 3 frozen embryos left. Would another laparoscopy to remove endo help implantation with an fet? Last lap 2/13
Not likely: I think for years we were more concerned about things like that. Now we known in the absence of specific problems with the uterus lining or cavity, that most ivf cycles fail because the embryos were genetically abnormal. So at age 31 likely half of all good day 5 embryos are genetically abnormal. Hopefully on of the frozen ones is good quality and genetically normal! ...Read more
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

I have 11mm endometrium & FET is after 7days.It will grow further.What is the maximum endometrium thickness for frozen embryo transfer in IVF ?
Perfect lining: I assume you will start Progesterone replacement soon as part of your protocol before your fet. Once Progesterone begins you will not see much growth (and possibly some thining) of the endometrial lining. Ideally you want the lining above 8 mm and triple line in appearance before start of the progesterone. There is no hard data on maximum thickness but some feel its around 18 mm. ...Read more
