Hi, definitely you can conceive. Especially since you had conceived naturally before.
IUI is an initial step in infertility treatment. But before i suggest you any specific treatment i would like to know the detailed history. My advise is to meet an infertility specialist and get evaluated thoroughly, if required even an hysterolaproscopy. Be positive. Good luck.

Welcome to HealthCareMagic,

It is not ovum, but it is Graafian follicle, which is not attaining full size. If ovulation doesn't occur, intra uterine insemination will be of no use.

Follimon contains urofollitropin. It is given to you to stimulate graafian follicle to attain full size. Once adequate size (18-20mm) is achieved, it is followed by a single injection of chorionic gonadotropin to stimulate ovulation.

If follimon is not working, you might be suffering with insulin resistance and your serum insulin level might be high. In addition to it, you should get following test done and consult your Gynecologist with reports.:- Serum levels of LH, FSH (on 3rd day), Thyroid hormones, Androgen hormone, Prolactin, Estradiol (E-2), Progesterone (21st day) and Anti Mullerian Hormone.

Hope you found my response to your query informative and helpful.

With good wishes,

Dr.Chandra Shekhar Sharma
