Doctor :   Are you planning for kids ?
User :   my wife is taking treatment for PCOD and doctor advised Litrozole for inducing ovulution
User :   this month after 3 month treatment
Doctor :   ok, How was the induction in her for last two months ?
User :   last 2 months she was put thru 2 cycles of tablets to regularise her period.only this month she is taking ovalution tablets and scan report says that she has good follicles this time
Doctor :   good , there are only nutritional ways to increase your sperm count but that take vary long time with uncertain results
Doctor :   the best technique you can successfully employ would be Artificial insemination of your concentrated semen
User :   weather 42 million enough for it
User :   can i go for a second semen analysis
Doctor :   its enough there are chances of conception but the chances are less and may need more attempts
Doctor :   yes, its always a better option to rule out lab differences , get it repeated in another better lab

User :   how long doesit take is it a surgical procedure
Doctor :   yes, you can try that this cycle
