How Many Follicles Are Too Many For Iui
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
Can't say: Without specifics: what type of medicine used? Insemination with how many total motile sperm? Monitored how? Hcg trigger injection? Other female diagnosis (endometriosis, tubal problems, etc., ...)? In general # of follicles is not a predictor of pregnancy. Prognosis for a 41-year old is always guarded; you really want to talk with your fertility doctor about this question. Good luck! ...Read more
I had my IUI 2 days ago. After wash my husband had 6million count. I had 2 follicle eggs. And now I'm taking endometrin 100mg 2x day. ?
Correct!: Hopefully... 1. You have recruited follicles on the "open-patent" side 2. The blocked side doesn't have fluid accumulated in it as this can drain into the uterus and be toxic to embryos from the good side 3. Iui does increase the odds two fold compared to "timed intercourse". Good luck! ...Read more
Preparing for IUI and taking menopur daily. Is intercourse advisable at anytime during the stimulation of follicles?
Yes, unless advised: Most couples doing IUI cycles with ovulation induction medications should have intercourse 2-3 x a week to cover you if you ovulate early, and to 'keep his sperm specimen fresh'. With injectable medicines like Menopur you have more potential to make too many eggs than with Clomid (clomiphene) / Letrozole tablets, so your clinic will monitor you and tell you not to have intercourse if you over-respond to shots. ...Read more
We had IUI today with 29 million washed sperm count and 2 good follicles. Wife is 34 years old. Good chance for success?
I am on follistim for IUI. Does the dose have to change each cycle if 1-3 follicles are produced and estradiol is increasing appropriately. ?
No it doesn't have t: but it definitely could, if you see the difference. you might go through 3-4 cycles without ever changing a dose (if the US and E2 support that,) or you might change doses several times in each cycle. A woman's body is not a machine so monitoring is critical to doing gonadotropins safely and well. Good wishes. ...Read more
On IUI with inj. 1st cycle 125/225IU Follistim-3 follicles, 2nd cycle 200IU Follistim-1 follicle. 3rd IUI MD wants 450IU, is that dose too high?
In your opinion, for the best chance of a successful IUI how many mature follicles should you have at trigger? I'm 41 years old with an FSH of 7.7
5 to 6: Although we usually aim for 2-4 follicles in patients int their 30 s, i would aim for more in a patient that is 41. The data from pgs in patients doing ivf shows that 90% of embryos can be abnormal. This explains the 50% moscarriage rate in women over 40. Ultimately more eggs is better in a 41 year old so ivf may be best choice as the rate of multiples can be controlled by # for et. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

1) How long does swim-up washed sperm live inside a women after IUI?
2) I had 2 mature follicles and hubby's sperm count was 82milion. Will i succeed
Gonal-F since CD2 and today CD11,scanned and the follicles are hyperatimulated. Got 11 follies around 13-17mm..iui cancelled. Can i ovulate by my own?
Not usually: Ovarian hyperstimulation is a know risk of fertility medications. If your doctor thinks that ovarian hyper stimulation syndrome is occurring then close monitoring is warranted. Most cases resolve on their own. If leakage of fluid is in the abdominal cavity (ascites) is present then often hospital admission is needed. ...Read more
I had IUI sun morn with my trigger sat morning. my lining was around 5-6 and i had 2 follicles that were around 18 by sun. is that lining too thin to hope for conception? we had no sex other than iui
On the thin side: An endometrial lining of 5-6 mm is on the thin side but apparently it was sufficient to meet your doctor's criteria to proceed with the IVF protocol. This would mean he/she thought the chance of conception was reasonable, not "zero." There are other favorable features of endometrium potentially present. I would certainly continue to hope that this cycle will result in pregnancy. Best wishes:) ...Read more
Found 2 follicles but not the same size 2.0 and 1.64, does it have any chances to have twins with iui?
Yes: Both of those follicles have a chance of having a mature egg inside. You do have a chance of twins, probably around 10% or so. Both will release the egg when you ovulate. ...Read more
I had 2 good follicles on day12 of LMP. Trigger shot was given on day13 at 9.00pm and IUI was done on day15 at 10am. whats my chance to conceive?
So far so good: It sounds like your treatment plan is going well. Now you are in the emotionally challenging “2 week wait.” This is the time between the treatment and when you can take a pregnancy test to see if it worked. Try and focus on other things. The time will pass faster than you think. Worrying does not make fertility treatments work better. Best of luck ...Read more
