What are my chances with IUI and having problems and one blocked tube?

What are my chances with IUI and having problems and one blocked tube?

Statistically 1 /2: One blocked tube cuts the statistical chance of conceiving roughly in half, because only in cycles where ovulation matches the open tube do you have a realistic chance of conception. Iui will not help with this problem at all because it does nothing to change the tubal condition. ...Read more

Intrauterine Insemination (Definition)

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

I have right tube blocked.had stimulated cycle two eggs on the right and one on the left. Can IUI work for me.

Yes, it can: a blocked tube reduces chances for a woman to become pregnant by maybe 20 %, not 50 %. And if in a stimulated cycle both ovaries show good follicles that is certainly a better scenario than having the follicles on the side of the blocked tube. But even so, there is a chance. ...Read more

All my tubes are blocked and doctor suggested iui. Do you think it will work for me?

No: If your tubes are blocked, the only choices are ivf or repair of the tubes. Iui only works when when at least one tube is open. ...Read more

42WF,just had M/C at 9wks.FSH19,AM1.2.HSGshowed left tube is blocked.REwants to do superovulation/IUI.Should I first clear my left FT?Last midcycle US showed 9 follicles on my left ovary and 3 on my right.Am i cutting my chances using right FTonly?

Problem: A blocked tube can rarely be unblocked. If the hsg didn't unblock it, then most likely you will have to try with only your one tube. Your RE can monitor your ovulation and give you an idea as to how likely you are to conceive at each IUI attempt. Good luck. ...Read more

Hello doc i m suffering from both tube blocked at cornual end now plan for hysterolaproscopy so can I do associated IUI a t the same time?

Hello doc i m suffering from both  tube blocked  at cornual end  now plan for hysterolaproscopy so can  I do associated IUI a t the same time?

IUI won't work: If both your tubes are really blocked at the cornual ends (where they join the uterus) the IUI won't work as the egg and sperm can't get together. If one or both tubes was in spasm and not truly blocked then you still have a chance. Talk to your doctor - it's probably best to wait to see how your tubes look at the time of surgery before doing iuis. ...Read more

Had IUI done march 19th had us done today and found no sac or blastocyst or anything in tubes. Should i be worried my beta is 578 monday.

With a beta of 578: Would expect it to be a bit higher but hard to drawn any conclusions without having another value to compare to. In the absence of pain/ bleeding and risk factors for ectopic the odds are in your favor that this will could be a normal pregnancy. You should know that the baseline rate of miscarriage is 15% but again too early to drawn conclusions...Follwo up with ur obgyn. ...Read more

I have done tube wash in June and on 3 rd July I have IUI without conceiving. Why??

Nobody knows: Unfortunately nobody knows. In every normal cycle, in a woman with no infertility issues, there is only a 20% chance of getting pregnant if everything goes right. This number is far less in women with fertility issues. IUI does improve your chances but nothing, not even IVF is 100%. Don't lose hope though because just like life, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. ...Read more
