Undergoing assisted iui, what can I do to increase my chances of successful impantation, both n, I am 43 we are fertile, 1st IUI failed, try again?

Undergoing assisted iui, what can I do to increase my chances of successful impantation, both n, I am 43 we are fertile, 1st IUI failed, try again?

In vitro fertilization (ivf) may be a better option than IUI treatment if you are a good candidate for this type of treatment. Some 43 year olds need to use an egg donor instead of trying with their own eggs. Talk to your doctor about options and success rates. ...Read more

Can Femara b used after 6 lifetime clomid (clomiphene) cycles are used up (clomid (clomiphene)=successful but I want more kids) or are injectables or IVF the only options left?

Could be, sometimes: but is it a good idea? Clomid (clomiphene) does not need to be limited to 6 cycles lifetime, but 6 unsuccessful cycles (not lifetime) is usually reason to change up. The question would be why is the CC not working? Femara is very similar to CC in performance, so no reason to expect it would be more/ less successful. Often updating or expanding diagnosis to understand the CC failure is a better next step. ...Read more
