Took Clomid (clomiphene) 50 mg, 5 gonal injection, pregnyl injection. Did sex in ovulation days . Why i may not be pregnant?

Common: The in general the chance of not being pregnant is much higher than the chance of being pregnant. You may have a 10% chance of being pregnant and a 90% chance of not being pregnant. That is because the treatment does not affect fertilization, take into account egg quality, help the sperm, or deal with the tubes. So the vast majority of women will not get pregnant at any given treatment. ...Read more

How many inseminations per cycle will be given to a women using Clomid (clomiphene) (or injectables) with iui?

How many inseminations per cycle will be given to a women using Clomid (clomiphene) (or injectables) with iui?

One or two per cycle: One to two per cycle - if one insemination (iui) per cycle we schedule it on the day of expected ovulation (egg release), if two we do one IUI the day before ovulation as well. Two IUI is a slightly higher pregnancy rate than one, but not double. Have intercourse 2-3 times a week as well.

TTC,in fertility treatment for 3yrs- did 8 cycles of IUI.Doc say IVF is next.i m worried abt hormones used.want true opinon on cons of IVF n cancer ?

Long discussion: The decision to proceed with IVF is a hard one and should involve a detailed conversation with you fertility specialist. The risks should be discussed and weighed against your desire to have a child. The hormonal exposure during treatment is lower than the hormonal elevation you will experience during pregnancy Pregnancy causes a HUGE surge in hormones way beyond fertility medication. ...Read more

Hi, I am on decapeptyl mthly injections about to take my 3rd one, can you get pregnant on these? Also can I start IVF right away? Thanks!

Hi, I am on decapeptyl mthly injections about to take my  3rd one, can you get pregnant on these? Also can I start IVF right away? Thanks!

Unlikely: Decapeptyl injections are very similar to Lupron (leuprolide) and both turn off the reproductive cycle resulting in no periods, no ovulation and low estrogen levels. Low estrogen levels make patients feel menopausal so often we use add back therapy to decrease the side effects. The first cycle you could ovulate or may have already ovulated so could be pregnant. After that month pregnancy is very unlikely. ...Read more

Hello, I am starting ivf gonal-f injections from tomorrow. Do i have to take injections out before 30 mins? does injecting on the same place helps?

Gonal F (follitropin alfa): It does not matter at all where you inject; I suggest rotating spots to avoid bruising and soreness. "Take injections out?" Do you mean of the refrigerator? Or? It helps if they are warmed to room temperature before sue, if that's what you are asking. Best wishes with your IVF! ...Read more

Can I drink wine to stay relaxed while IVF? Started injections 4 days ago and anxiety is super high!

Risky: In an article by Rossi and others in the journal Obstetrics and Gynecology of January 2011 they looked at more than 4700 IVF cycles/2500 couples, looking at live birth rate after IVF. In women or men with 4+ drinks/week prior to IVF cycle there was a 48 % higher risk for failure of fertilization and a 21% lower chance for a live birth. You have to use your own judgement but you may be gambling. ...Read more

Took BCP for 32days before starting Triptorelin for IVF . On day 9 of the injection my menstruation started . Is this normal?

Probably yes: This sounds like you are describing a "down-regulation" cycle, in which case this would be approximately correct. I'm having to guess that you are down-regulating, if your doctor had a different protocol in mind, this might not be as intended. Check with your doctor or feel free to resubmit here with more information about your intended stimulation plan. Good wishes. ...Read more

Ekg results were sinus bracardyia with short pr syndrome. I am currently on ivf injections and suffer from aniexty. Can aniexty and meds make ekg abnormal?

Short pr: Sinus bradycardia is very common in young adults. Accelerated AV conduction(short pr interval) can make you prone to episodes or supraventricular tachycardia. I don't believe that anxiety or your treatment caused these EKG findings. I would avoid caffeine,alcohol,nicotine and other stimulants all of which can initiate tachycardia by making the heart more irritable. A Cardiologist can advise you. ...Read more
