Please somebody help. I'm 30 yo, I've been diagnosed with low t (3.86 ng/ml), low normal LH & FSH (0.97 & 3.15 miu). Is there a permanent cure?

Please somebody help. I'm 30 yo, I've been diagnosed with low t (3.86 ng/ml), low normal LH & FSH (0.97 & 3.15 miu). Is there a permanent cure?

No cure, but help: Not knowing what your diagnosis is, I can't say for sure. Men your age with low testosterone may have any of a number of medical reasons for that. In medicine, we speak of "cure" meaning that the illness is permanently gone with no further treatment. Most illnesses cannot be cured, but well treated. Go to your physician and get a thorough evaluation, which will then lead to treatment. ...Read more

Fsh (Definition)

Fsh is a peptide hormone synthesized in the anterior (forward) pituitary gland in both males and females. The name 'follicle stimulating hormone' refers to its role in females, namely to recruit and prepare an oocyte (egg) in the first half of the menstrual cycle leading up to ovulation. Fsh is often measured in blood to test a woman's ovarian ...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

What is success of IVF with amh. 45, fsh 7.8, LH 5.6, and 7-9 follicles total at age 28?

What is success of IVF with amh. 45, fsh 7.8, LH 5.6, and 7-9 follicles total at age 28?

Pregnancy: It is difficult to put a number for what your success may be. These tests also are not predictive of pregnancy rather your response to fertility treatment medications during ivf. Your chances may not be as high as someone your same age with normal ovarian reserve. However, your age places you at a high chance in general. Good luck. ...Read more

Hello, I am 38. My FSH is 13 nd my AMH is 1.3. My follicle size is 16-17mm (9 th day). Can I get success through IVF nd with my own egg?

Tip: Unfortunately, I can't answer the question for you. However, I do have a suggestion. If you lab values in your inquiry, it's always helpful to also include normal ranges, whenever possible and relevant. ...Read more

My husband has cbavd. Could we have success with iui? Fsh is normal. Test. Is 228, but he is taking Clomid (clomiphene) for 3 months before extraction.

IVF / ICSI is better: Congenital bilateral absence of the vas deferens means that he'll need a surgical sperm retrieval, usually pesa or percutaneous epididymal sperm aspiration, done by a urologist. Pesa is simpler than testicular retrieval but still carries some risk of scarring/ damage. 1 pesa may yield enough sperm for 1-2 IUI attempts; ivf with icsi has a much better success rate with surgically retrieved sperm. ...Read more

36y/o in ivf#1 w/o prior iui. Fsh=7.7, e2=33, amh=4.54, afc=19. Should I be happy about my follicle count or concerned for ohss? What's my success %?

36y/o in ivf#1 w/o prior iui. Fsh=7.7, e2=33, amh=4.54, afc=19. Should I be happy about my follicle count or concerned for ohss? What's my success %?

Why OHSS?: The only risk significantly linked to ohss is peak Estradiol (e2) level at the time of HCG or ovulation. Even this is not a reliable indicator for ohss, but any e2 over 3000 should be considered carefully. None of the numbers you list have any bearing on ohss risk. ...Read more

Will using pure FSH injections be a better choice if the response on hmg is not very good. Body LH/FSH levels were tested normal.?

Will using pure FSH injections be a better choice if the response on hmg is not very good. Body LH/FSH levels were tested normal.?

FFSH vs. HMG: I'm assuming you mean recombinant FSH (e.g. Gonal-f or Follistim) when you say pure (vs. Bravelle). It would help to know what a "not very good" response is, but switching from one formulation to another potentially helps. Other tactics could include increasing the dose of medication daily, giving it intramuscularly or combining FSH with other meds (e.g. Clomid) to improve stimulation. ...Read more

Does increasing FSH (puregon) doesage increase the rate follicles grow/make you ovulate earlier or only increase number of follicles produced?

Does increasing FSH (puregon) doesage increase the rate follicles grow/make you ovulate earlier or only increase number of follicles produced?

Both: Increasing the dose of puregon can increase the number of follicles growing as well as the rate of growth and can induce an early ovulation. The dose should be tailored to your age and underlying diagnosis and an a high dose is not always beneficial. ...Read more

Will both ovaries be stimulated during ov induction (fsh injections)? I've had a R side salpingectomy and being treated for LPD and late ov cd 22

Generally yes: Injectable gonadotropins (FSH, FSH/LH combo) almost always stimulate both ovaries. Any ovulations on the side with the salpingectomy are likely wasted, but you should have multiple ovulations on the side with the remaining tube. Good luck. ...Read more

Lh 16; FSH 11; progesterone 5.5; prolactine 22 comment annovatory : low progesterone level. I have taken progesterone injection feb, no result yet.

Your question is???: This is a good laboratory snapshot of anovulation, which could be from pcos, obesity, adrenal gland dysfunction, among others. As your Progesterone level falls from the Progesterone shot you just received, you can expect a withdrawal bleed (a period). ...Read more

Taking puregon/fsh injections daily & have noticed egg white like CM on cd7 & cd9 (day 10 now). Does FSH cause early onset of CM but not ovulating?

Taking puregon/fsh injections daily & have noticed egg white like CM on cd7 & cd9 (day 10 now). Does FSH cause early onset of CM but not ovulating?

Cm: Cervical mucus varies from moth to month and from one person to another. It is also related to your estrogen levels. It is not surprising with your ovarian stimulation that you are producing cm, you may also notice it be more copious. All normal. Don't worry about cervical mucus your doctor will monitor your progress with estrogen levels and ultrasound. ...Read more

Does repeated treatment with gonadotropin to induce ovulation increase serum FSH exactly 2 weeks after the last injection?

Does repeated treatment with gonadotropin to induce ovulation increase serum FSH exactly 2 weeks after the last injection?

Elevated FSH: No, the gonadotropins that you take for ovulation induction only increase the fsh level for a short period (that is why you have to take them daily). If you have not taken medication for 2 weeks then the serum fsh value reflects what your pituitary gland is producing. ...Read more
