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
Azoospermia with 40 million count & 25% motility. Plng to for ivf with donor eggs. Which is the best? Is ivf or icsi? Which has highest success rate
Mild Azoospermia with 40 million/ml prgress-A grade, 25% motility & 12% morphology Plng to for ivf with donor eggs. Which is the best? Is ivf or icsi?
Unclear...: Your reported findings of semen analysis is reasonable; azoospermia denotes no sperm in semen at all. Have you & sex partner been evaluated for contributing factors for infertility yet? Generally speaking, some 50% of infertility result from female factors, some 30% from male factors, and 20% from both sides. So, ask treating doctors more before considering IVF or ICSI. ...Read more
I'm 32 with no problems, male factor is 2% morph trying to conceive for 14 months. Had our 2nd IUI with 50 Clomid (clomiphene) neg. What's next step? Iui or ivf?
Depends: There are many different factors that goes into account when deciding about the best fertility treatment and it can't and should not be answered by simply advising yes or no ivf. I would suggest however to look into the possible underlying causes for the low morphology and try to improve it (if at all possible )before your next fertility treatment . Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Pregnancy: It is difficult to put a number for what your success may be. These tests also are not predictive of pregnancy rather your response to fertility treatment medications during ivf. Your chances may not be as high as someone your same age with normal ovarian reserve. However, your age places you at a high chance in general. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Will stop smoking improve sperm quality for 36yo male with noa due to y chromosome azfc microdeletion? Plan for 2nd icsi.
Not my table: This is a highly complex question, and should be best posed to both the geneticists and the reproductive endocrinologists who are likely already involved in your care. However, in general, cigarette smoke impairs sperm motiity and function, and stopping improves it. Whether it makes a difference with your genetic abnormality, I have no clue. ...Read more

3 failed ivf. Blocked tube. Reports ok. Age factor so donor egg. Et cancelled - poor lining. Suggested cryocautery before FET in same cycle?Is it ok?
Cervical cryo?: In the same cycle as an fet? That would not be acceptable in the United States is all i can say. Or are you asking about another form of cryo? ...Read more
40yrs.Old, pcos, 1st IVF cycle w/genetic testing. Four day 5 embryos - all chromosomally abnormal. Worth another try? 39 eggs were retrieved, 19 fert.
Talk to the prenatal: Genetic counselor at the fertility clinic. Age-related odds are greater than 50% that each of your embryos has aneuploidy, an abnormal number of chromosomes, many of which either won't implant or wion't be carried to term. Age-related risk of having a child with autistic spectrum disorder is also high. Discuss options with your tac doctor to make an informed decision. It's a personal choice. ...Read more
Frozen sperm. Fresh eggs. Both proven donors. Nulligravid 42 yo woman. Odds of conception after et with 3?
Very good: The odds are excellent as long as all other aspects of your workup have been negative. Pregnancy rate with 2 embryos can give a 70% chance. Replacing 3 embryos in this situation would not be suggested as long as the egg donor was 21-28. Most donors are not accepted over 30. The risk of triplets is quite high and would cause significant obstetrical issues such as prematurity, decreased fetal size.. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes: Generally with iui, after the sperm sample is washed (where you separate sperm from semen), you should have at least 5 million total motile normal sperm to inseminate into the uterus (iui). Statistics show that less than that result in much lower pregnancy rates. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can patient undergo ovulation induction using gonal f (follitropin alfa) while using HRT mainly femoston 2/10 mg?
Doesn't make sense: In most cases this would not make much sense, although it could depend on 'why' and 'how' the hrt was being used. Estrogens such as in hrt are sometimes used in stimulation protocols with gonadotropins (such as gonal f, (follitropin alfa) ) an oral progestin would be an unlikely element of most protocols. ...Read more

How many eggs can be retrieved (average) on 150ml gonal f (follitropin alfa) per day for mid ovarian reserve woman age 32 with endometriosis?
Very difficult to : Say exactly. Not knowing anything about your history makes this difficult but in general we start with 225 total units of gonadotropins and in a 32 year old with endometriosis the range is wide: 0-15. I am not a fan of giving a precise number becuase there are so many variables involved... ...Read more
Gm my sperm count is 4m rapid speed is 2% morphology 6%.24 sperm survival test is nil.can I go for Icsi.we had 2previous failed Icsi.
Recommend more testi: Very important to get tested for DAZ genetic test that looks at the areas of the Y chromosome that is important for sperm production and fertilization. Also would get chromosome tested if previously not done so. Other test for males include the DNA defragmentation assay and evaluation of free reactive oxygen species in the Soren sample. And in the blood for male, thyroid and prolactin hormones. ...Read more
