Talk to the prenatal: Genetic counselor at the fertility clinic. Age-related odds are greater than 50% that each of your embryos has aneuploidy, an abnormal number of chromosomes, many of which either won't implant or wion't be carried to term. Age-related risk of having a child with autistic spectrum disorder is also high. Discuss options with your tac doctor to make an informed decision. It's a personal choice. ...Read more

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

30yrs female infertile for 3yr.Amh14.9pmol/l.Everything else ok.1 previous 8wks miscariage.One iuicycle cancelled due to premature ovulation.Best tx ?

Poor Signs: Everything you state means there is a higher chanec of a problem with the eggs: longstanding infertility, relatively low amh, and premature ovulation. There are all signs of the ovaries aging quicker than normal. My guess is ivf may be needed and you will likely find out there is a quality issue with the eggs. ...Read more

Long discussion: The decision to proceed with IVF is a hard one and should involve a detailed conversation with you fertility specialist. The risks should be discussed and weighed against your desire to have a child. The hormonal exposure during treatment is lower than the hormonal elevation you will experience during pregnancy Pregnancy causes a HUGE surge in hormones way beyond fertility medication. ...Read more

MTHFR?: Have they tested for the mthfr 677 ; 1298 genotypes yet? It is a very common cause of infertility and neural tube defects leading to miscarriages. The more abnormal genes you have, the worse the problems can be. Can treat with bellevue pharmacy "s8"supplement (msg for details).Also check her for antibodies to sperm. Would need ivf if +.

At this point: you do not need a trigger shot: the progesterone of 8 indicates you already ovulated a few days ago, so the trigger will not do anything useful at this point. Congratulations. ...Read more

Will stop smoking improve sperm quality for 36yo male with noa due to y chromosome azfc microdeletion? Plan for 2nd icsi.

Not my table: This is a highly complex question, and should be best posed to both the geneticists and the reproductive endocrinologists who are likely already involved in your care. However, in general, cigarette smoke impairs sperm motiity and function, and stopping improves it. Whether it makes a difference with your genetic abnormality, I have no clue. ...Read more
