When should I start to test ovulatiin if I did not ovulate on day12 after an IVF failure.?

Depends on ur cycle: Your infertility doctor can advise you. You usually will ovulate 14 days before your next period. Subtract 14 from the length of your cycle and you can predict ovulation. If you have 30 day cycles (30-14= 16) you will ovulate approx day 16. Continue to use the ovulation sticks until you get a +.

I'm 29 yrs old. Fsh-4.7  LH -5.9 and AMH 7.3 ... 
Are these values ok? 
Most ovulation drugs didn't work for me so can I consider ivf?

Problem ovulating: Cause for anovulation should be determined as this directs treatment. Some forms respond to meds like clomiphene (i.e. Clomid) or Letrozole, and others need daily injectable medications. Your AMH is great (FSH/LH fine, but need to know estradiol level too) so please speak with your REI about tx options (and risks) short of IVF first. Risks may make IVF safest tx in some cases. Good luck! ...Read more

After failure ivf, I checked to see my ovulation but on da 12 after period I didn't do ovulation.Is it normal maybe due to stress.When ovulation occur?

Normal: After an ivf cycle it is common for the next month's ovulation to be delayed. All the medications that are given for the ivf cycle can take a few extra days to get out of your system before a new ovulation will start up. Ivf is also very stressful so that can play a part as well. I have had patients who conceived on their own the month after a failed ivf cycle. It can happen. ...Read more

I have pcos but tubes & uterus is okay .I am 29 years. Have 6 cycles of Clomid (clomiphene) & the last 3 cycles FSH was added but never ovulated. Will IVF be okay ?

I have pcos but tubes & uterus is okay .I am 29 years. Have 6 cycles of Clomid (clomiphene) & the last 3 cycles FSH was added but never ovulated. Will IVF be okay ?

PCOS: Clomid (clomiphene) and FSH can be used in PCOS to assist with ovulation, but using these sometimes requires injections of HCG to produce ovulation. Providers will follow follicle development and give HCG when the size of the growing follicle(s) is/are appropriate. IVF methods are much more expensive, but are more certain to achieve pregnancy. Suggest more attempts using present medications, ultrasound/HCG. ...Read more

Very probably so.: You are probably ovulating but at a less frequent or regular fashion. See your gynecologist for testing and management. An over the counter ovulation predictor test can answer your question but does not explain your oligomenorrhea. Thyroid dysfunction must be ruled out asap! ...Read more
