hi XXXXXX,
Thanks for the query.

according to the reports given by you your hormonal levels are almost in normal range, except estradiol which is on lower side, usually it will be around 50, but reference ranges of labs may differ,
so discuss this with your doctor whether there is any effect on your ovulation because of this, as that may cause problems in ovulation and implantation,
to get success of IUI procedure following measures can help,
-IUI to be done on the same day of ovulation,
-at least 1 million of motile sperms to be inseminated,
-ovulation to be confirmed by ultrasound,
-there should not be any blockade of fallopian tubes, better to go for hysterosalpingogram in case of repeated failure which will rule out tubal blockade and uterine adhesions,
-possibility of pelvic adhesions to be ruled out by ultrasound, diagnostic laparoscopy may be needed sometimes.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.

hi XXXXXX,

according to your laparoscopic report,
your tubes are normal,
you had PCOD and endometriosis, and underwent treatment for them,
then the possible causes for your IUI failure could be,
-not following any one of the measures I told previously,
-recurrence of PCOD or endometriosis, leading to difficulties in ovulation or implantation,

so what you can do is,
-undergo ultrasound once to rule out the possibility of recurrence of the problems,
-this time follow ovulation with follicular study and go for IUI on the same day of ovulation with sufficient sperm count, if needed you can go for more than one attempts,
-after ovulation continue undercover of progesterones and also with other tablets you are taking,
with these measures possibly you can have successful pregnancy,
if not better to go for other artificial reproductive measures.

Wish you Good Health, If you are satisfied with my response please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.
