Day 3 estradiol 123.54 FSH 6.46 LH 4.38 prolactin 23.13 is this okey to conceive or iui?

Day 3 estradiol 123.54 FSH 6.46 LH 4.38 prolactin 23.13 is this okey to conceive or iui?

Hard to say, because: First, no blood testing for females tells you yes/no on iui, that is determined by the male sperm numbers. Second, although your numbers are all in a normal range, the Estradiol at 123 is much too high for day 3 - which means the fsh might be suppressed (and therefore look 'better.' ) sorry if this sounds complicated! ...Read more

If you even spot one day during the proper time, it is considered a period. You have nothing to worry about. If you would like to have a period your dr. May prescribe some other hormones to take with your Mircette (ethinyl estradiol and desogestrel) and induce a cycle. ...Read more

Does anyone take ovcon 35?

Yes: Quite a few patients do. Standard estrogen dosage for oral contraceptive pills (ocp aka birth control pills) is about 35 micrograms (mcg). Low-dose pills can have as low as 20 mcg.

It's a balance that physicians are looking for. ...Read more

I took the contraceptive Diane 35 for 5 yrs,I decided to take a 60 day break.Will influence the risks of thrombosis and adverse reactions when i back?

Not likely: If you tolerated the medication for 5 years, taking a break will not put you at greater risk for thrombosis. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more
