Iui Ovulation Symtoms
No, it's still OK: See my other answer as well. If we are monitoring a treatment cycle with ultrasound, and you have a decent-sized follicle and then get a positive lh surge I would do an IUI on the day of your surge. The egg has up to 24 hours after ovulation when fertilization could occur. Best wishes. ...Read more
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
OPK or ultrasounds: If you have regular periods you can use an ovulation predictor kit (opk). Iui can be timed according to when your OPK goes positive. You can also have ultrasound scans to measure the size and number of follicles developing in your ovaries, which may be combined with blood tests to check your estrogen levels. If you have irregular cycles see a rei specialist. ...Read more

I had my HTC shot sat at 5 pm and the following Monday at 11 am I has my first IUI and another sat at same time. Is this when I should of ovulated.
Unclear: I think you mean HCG shot. IUI would typically follow that and not be repeated five days later. Clarify with your doctor the schedule and plan ...Read more

What is the sucess of IUI for boy gender. Modified ericsson method was used. Insemination happened on ovulation day. I do not want what it is claimed?
See below: There's a slight predominance of males.Get a more detailed answer ›
Yes, it's a good day: There is a window where the egg could be fertilized, from around 3-5 days before ovulation until the day of ovulation (and maybe one day after ovulation). The day of ovulation might be the best day to do an IUI - if you choose one IUI per month we time it for the day of expected ovulation, for 2 IUI a month we choose the day before ovulation and the day of ovulation. Best wishes. ...Read more
I just had an iui from 100mgclomid trigger. Had 3 mature 1 smaller folliclegreat lining but 7day progestrone result is only 4.6.Did I ovulate?
Definitely: That is definitely an ovulatory progesterone level. With clomiphene I wouldn't get too hung up on "how many, " it is really only supposed to give you one or two follicles. It improves you chances of conceiving significantly anyway. Drugs such as hMG ("shots") will increase follicle number, but that's a whole 'other approach. Good wishes and good luck. ...Read more
Does advanced ericsson method using IUI on ovulation day makes probability of boy 90 percent. My gyn said that and he s sure. Shall I doubt him?
Yes please doubt him:
A recent study showed that there is no difference in male sperm vs female sperm, there is no difference in speed of swimming, size, morphology. Study after study has shown that these methods do not work. Well at least they work 50% of the time. If you want a real world non-research proof.
The world is 50% male, and 50% female. ...Read more
After IUI what all should I take care of to get pregnant? My ovulation was not with in 48 hrs, took 70 hrs. Is there a chance for me to get pregnant
Nothing.: After IUI you do not really have to anything; although, some clinicians like to put their patients on some form of Progesterone supplements. As far as timing iui, if you received a HCG trigger shot, than IUI should be done around 42+ hours later. If you timed IUI with odk than IUI should be done shortly after the odk turns positive. Odk are less accurate for timing than HCG trigger shots. ...Read more

My wife took ovidrel 36 hrs before an IUI procedure. We came home after IUI and took ovulation kit, results were negative for ovulation. Thoughts?
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
My IUI was done on Saturday, 36hrs after trigger shot. I've been tracking my ovulation and rec'd a positive today. Does this mean my IUI was mistimed?
Not at all: Research studies have shown that insemination PRIOR to ovulation provides the best chances for success rather than after ovulation. Spermatozoa need to swim from the IUI intrauterine placement to the fallopian tubes for conception and can viably await the egg for up to 3 to 5 days when in place. ...Read more

It's common using Clomid (clomiphene) to have decreased mucus prior to ovulation, and an IUI may be needed, how can I detect this?
Cervical mucus: Usually around the time of ovulation cervical mucus is very apparent. It is usually long and stringy. But sometimes on Clomid (clomiphene) the mucus is decreased somewhat. Usually the mucus is thicker and less penetrable. Sometimes I recommend patient's to use Robitussin or guaifenesin to thin mucus. ...Read more
I am taking susten200mg progesterone capsules. Did iui. Only if I stop that capsule will periods start or will it start after 14days ovulation?
I have had IUI three times already and every 8th day after ovulation and IUI I get bleeding which eventually becomes a period, a week before period?
Bad Prognosis: That means your body is not supporting the pregnancy. Usually, even if you are not pregnant, you will not bleed for about 2 weeks. So that means your hormones after ovulation are very low. It indicates a "poor quality" ovulation. Unfortunately, that can mean that there is a problem with the egg quality or the genetics of the eggs. There is a good chance you will need ivf. ...Read more
What is the lifespan of freshly washed sperm after IUI? I did IUI 24 hrs Post Ovidrel shot and I felt ovulation 38 hrs Post shot. Any Success Chances?
Here are some. ..: In real life, sperms may survive up to 3-7 days inside female genital tract after ejaculation. So, we may expect the washed sperms will not live longer than the natural ones. But, it would be easier and practical to address this question to your attending doc of the event - IUI. For now, just sit tight, watch for pregnancy-related symptoms, and do pregnancy test timely. Best wish. .. ...Read more
