There after no pregnancy achieved. We went for 4-5 cycles of IUI and 2 cycles of IVF. Age for husband-43 yrs and Wife-37 yrs. What to do now? Thanks
Doctor :   Hi Dr XXX here
Doctor :   let me read your query?
User :   hello Doctor...Good evening
Doctor :   good evening
Doctor :   can you tell me the findings of Ultrasound or any other investigation done ?
Doctor :   any tests done ?

User :   Preganancy of 2007 was on medical support. Syphen was given to her and she concived in 3rd cycle after that
Doctor :   ok

User :   in 2008, lyproscopy was done and it was observed that right side tubes has mingled and that was corrected
Doctor :   Is the semen analysis normal ?
User :   no problem was there
User :   yes Doc semen is OK
Doctor :   ok,
Doctor :   how is the first child doing ?
User :   HSG was done in 2008 after 4-5 months from lyproscopy and it was also ok
Doctor :   To be frank, even after so many attempts, and failure seems abnormal
Doctor :   if everything was ok, why was IUI & IVF done ?
User :   becaz pregnancy was not getting through and age was going up doctor decided to go for it
Doctor :   ok
User :   when IUI doesnt succeeded, we were left with option of IVF,
User :   2 cycles of IVf was done with good embro but did not succeeded
Doctor :   TO be frank, i think any further attempts, to have a child should not be done based on any further procedures like IVF and IUI
Doctor :   try to achieve pregnancy normally
User :   I could not get it
Doctor :   and dont be discouraged by not having another child
User :   but we tried in normal way also for years together but could not succeed thats why we are unable to undestand what to do now
Doctor :   i meant , dont try hard to get another child as the rate of success will be low considering so many failures even after such procedures
Doctor :   Do you really want to have a child at this stage ?
Doctor :   you are 43 and 37 yrs, old
User :   yes becaz my daughter feels lonely and secondly I am only child of my parent so i dont want my daughter also to suffer the same
Doctor :   oh ok
Doctor :   i understand your situation
User :   i dont know why but i feel whether her Uteras have any problem? how to know this?
Doctor :   but, in that case, i wouls suggest you, to just enjoy with your family, and dont go trying harder
Doctor :   when you may get lucky, and have a child normally
User :   is there any other way to diagnose the problem
Doctor :   when you try harder and fail it leads to stress and discomforet
User :   or find whether there is any problem
Doctor :   the other alternative is ADOPTION
User :   ya
Doctor :   the basic issue is due to age
Doctor :   i would consider hormone def to be the cause of pregnancy failute in the last cases
User :   But medical tech has also improved lot
Doctor :   i understand, but technology has its limitations and may not be useful to all
User :   Doctor, you are from where and what is your specilisation area, I am satisfied chat
