How Many Cycles Of Iui Before Ivf
See your doctor: Many women at age 33 should be able to conceive with ivf. Please sit down with your doctor to understand why your last 2 cycles did not work and what your doctor thinks about your overall chances for success. Are there things that you can do to help? Lose weight? Quit smoking? Manage stress? It may also be reasonable to consider a second opinion. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Intrauterine insemination (iui) is where fresh or frozen partner or donor sperm is prepared or 'washed' to increase the sperm quality then gently injected through your cervix after a speculum exam, like a pap smear exam. It should be painless or cause mild cramping only. Iui helps with mild to moderate sperm problems. Iui preparations should have at least 2 million moving ...Read more
Ask ur ReproEndo doc: Whether someone should have repeat IUI or undergo ivf is a question best addressed by your reproductive endocrinologist who knows you best as there are too many variables to consider for an unknown physician to answer w/o access to your medical records or ability to examine you. Get a local 2nd opinion if you want but should be from someone who examines you & has access to all your information. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm 45, just had 1st failed ivf. Previously had 2 fld iui's and 2 cxld. Will try IVF again in jan. Are more iui's a waste? Insurance will cover them
Donor egg: Are you using a donor egg? That would be most rei doctors recommendation at this point. At 45 after failed iui's and failed ivf, nearly every rei doctor would likely recommend donor egg. Not to do so would be somewhat insincere, as promising a pregnancy at 45 with your own eggs is highly unlikely. I'm not an rei specialist, though, you might consider asking this question directly to one on ht. ...Read more
Hi. If my wife and I do IUI or IVF for our first child, will we have to do IUI or IVF if we decide to have a second child? My wife is 32 and i'm 34.
It's a choice?: 6 cycles of IUI on injectable medications costs around the same as one cycle of ivf. One takes 6+ months and ivf takes 6 weeks. Here is the "rub". 6 cycles of IUI is not as successful as 1 cycle of ivf. So it is a choice. By doing iui, you "gamble" that it works in 2-3 attempts and save money; but if not, than ultimately it costs more because when IUI does not work, you have to go to ivf. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Trying for child #2. 1st one conceived naturally after trying 4 yrs. Two yrs in this time, 3unsuccessful IUIs. 36yrs old/healthy. Can't afford IVF. ?
Be patient: Just because it took you longer to conceive the natural way first time, doesn't necessary mean it needs to take that long the second time. There are no set rules. There are check lists for trying to conceive in the blog for which a link has been provided for your review. Good luck:) ...Read more
Depends why IUI, IVF: Agree with dr reaves' answer, unless both your tubes are 100% blocked in which case ivf is needed again. Almost all other causes of infertility have a chance of natural conception, even some men with 'zero sperm' (azoospermia) may get some sperm in their ejaculate. If you are diagnosed with diminished ovarian reserve (low egg supply) it makes sense to try to have your kids close together though. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
