I do have pcos and my husband severe oligoathrnszoospermia my gyn want us to use insemenation iui.can that work for us? Help
Its a good option:
IUI is a good option for you. Your husband's sperm from several donations can be concentrated. Then, at just the right moment, your doctor can put it right were it needs to be. Sometimes nature needs a little help.
PCOS can prevent you from ovulating. If your doctor does IUI, he will know how to make sure you are ovulating on your own or give you medicine to help you ovulate.
How long should DH abstain before IUI procedure? SA is normal. I have PCOS. We are on Femara (letrozole) Day 5-9 and doing Ovidrel IUI 36 hours later.

I have mild pcos, I have done 2iui s with three chemical pregnancies.I want to try another iui, how can I prevevent another chemical pregnancy?
Early miscarriages: Biochemical pregnancy (positive HCG hormone but too low to see a pregnancy on ultrasound) is either very early miscarriage or early tubal pregnancy. You need to be checked for tubal problems and polyps/fibroids in the uterus with an hsg, as well as tests for diminished ovarian reserve (low egg supply). After 2 + losses you should be checked for thrombophilias and autoimmune causes of miscarriage. ...Read more
Age:23,16 months married life.Diagonsed with PCOS.1st IUI failed.What is the chance of pregnancy on further cycles of IUI? Is it advisable to try now?
PCOS: Before you plan another IUI I would suggest that you find out if your ovulatory. It doesn't make sense to schedule an IUI if you're not ovulating. If you aren't ovulatory then I would suggest medication to get you to ovulate and then plan the IUI. ...Read more

I am 29 yrs old & hv pcos.Aftr 1 yr of trying I got pregnant in 2nd iui. But it end up in miscarriage whn i was 3 weeks pregnant.whn shud i try again?
This is a question: that you need to direct to your treating physician. Not knowing the specific details of the amount of blood lost and the specifics surrounding your fertility and metabolic disorder, giving specific information is not possible, and probably unsafe. Clearly you will want to try again as soon a it is safe to do so. Call your doc and ask them what they suggest and when you need to follow up. good luck ...Read more
I have pcos and my husbands semen analysis was low but motility was good I am in my first monitered cycle of Clomid (clomiphene) w/hgc & IUI what are our chances?
Depends: Ideally we like to see 5 million total motile sperm after the wash for an IUI specimen. If you have a good IUI specimen and you respond well to Clomid (clomiphene) then your chance of conception should be about the same as a fertile couple: about 15% per cycle, about 60% after 6 cycles. ...Read more

How successful is IUI if have PCOS and have done Clomid (clomiphene) and meds over year and ovulated twice with no pregnancy? Think mucus not what should be!
PCOS: Pregancy even with clomiphene citrate is not easy to achieve, and ovulation "twice" in a year is also not helping your chances. Ask your healthcare professional to consider increasing your dose of clomid, or perhaps move to FSH analogues to help you ovulate. You also at 35 may consider in vitro fertilization if the preceding does not produce pregnancy in another six months or so. ...Read more

Before pregnancy!: Make sure that both you ; your hubby (if + for the mthfr 677 or 1298 genotypes), are first being treated with l-methylfolate, p5p, and methylcobalamin (at the minimum), to give any pregnancy a best chance for success. Also, do not take a prenatal vitamin that has regular fa if you are a known mthfr+ person. The regular Folic Acid blocks the receptors that need to let l-mthf through. Pm me! ...Read more
Hi im 29 with PCOS. Had 4 failed IUI cycles, 1 with Clomid 50mg, 1 with Clomid 100mg + Femera 5mg + estradiol 0.5 mg 7 days. 2 cycles Puregon 75ml with porgesterone 200mg. Sperm 6-11 Mill post wash. Need help on next steps i.e diff Meds or IVF? Thx.
This is complicated!: Try a Virtual Consult with one of our gyno specialists? Also, ask YOUR fertility specialist what point(s) in the process they think this failed and what's the next step. Also, if they're monitoring your natural progesterone levels, are they consistent with ovulation? External progesterone helps maintain pregnancy but won't help trigger ovulation. IVF requires healthy ova for success. ...Read more

I have pcos and irregular periods - 14 days ago i had IUI - had a brownish discharge yesterday - no period - blood test neg - could i still be pg?
Post-IUI : There are 2 possibilities here: either you're pregnant or you are staring on your period. Very early on in pregnancy when the embyro implants into the uterus, a little bleeding can occur, most often described by women as "spotting". However, spotting also occurs early in pregnancy. Follow the guidance of the doctor that did your IUI regarding steps to take next. ...Read more

Have pcos & trying to conceive (on 150 mg Clomid (clomiphene) cd5-9, hcg) with iui. How can I be certain that I ovulated? Can you have a period without ovulation?
Check progesterone: You can not have a menstrual period spontaneously with ovulating. You could have breakthrough bleeding, but that is not a real menstrual period. If you do ovulate, your Progesterone level will rise, it is common to check this level around cycle day 24 to 26 of Clomid (clomiphene) stimulated cycles, to confim ovulation. ...Read more

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
