What are the success rates for vasectomy reversal?

What are the success rates for vasectomy reversal?

Excellent: Excellent in the right hands. The expertise of the surgeon is a very important determinant of the ultimate success. Time out from the vasectomy is also important but there is no strict cut-off - the "10 year mark" is a fallacy - just not true. So, find a Urological Surgeon like my self who specializes in Vasectomy Reversal (microsurgical). My practice at Boston Medical Center keeps costs low. ...Read more

On average what is the success rate over 3 cycles of IUI for couples with unexplained infertility?

On average what is the success rate over 3 cycles of IUI for couples with unexplained infertility?

Average is 3-4 trys: 6 cycles of IUI on injectable medications costs around the same as one cycle of ivf. One takes 6+ months and ivf takes 6 weeks. Here is the "rub". 6 cycles of IUI is not as successful as 1 cycle of ivf. So it is a choice. By doing iui, you "gamble" that it works in 2-3 attempts and save money; but if not, than ultimately it costs more because when IUI does not work, you have to go to ivf. ...Read more

What are the ovulation success rates on low (50iu) FSH injections in Clomid (clomiphene) resistance patients?

What are the ovulation success rates on low (50iu) FSH injections in Clomid (clomiphene) resistance patients?

Good rates, long tim: Fsh will usually stimulate the ovaries very well. The concern is that too many eggs will stimulate and that is why we use a low dose protocol when not doing ivf. The key is patience. It may take 3-4 weeks of injections before the ovulation will occur. If little effect the dose is increased. Sometimes too many eggs will become mature anyway and the cycle will need to be cancelled. ...Read more

What is success of IVF with amh .45, fsh 7.8, LH 5.6, and 7-9 follicles total at age 28?

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 more

5 failed IUI with letrozole, mild endo removed by laparoscopy, one miscarriage but conceived naturally after 2 yrs. IVF next or Iui with injectables?

No more IUI: Since you've failed 5 IUIs, it is no longer a good option for you, especially for someone with endometriosis. One reason patients with endometriosis not able to conceive naturally, is because the endometriosis will cause pelvic adhesion and tubal dysfunction. IVF is a much better option. If you are afraid of using drugs, you may choose natural cycle IVF or mild stimulation IVF. ...Read more
