Brief Answer:
IUI will not get affected

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
welcome to healthcare magic.
I am Dr.Srilatha gynaecologist.
I understand your concern.

The ponstel 500mg is mefenamic acid.

It belongs to NSAID group which are mainly used as pain killers.

It is routinely used in case of period pain and in cases of excessive bleeding sometimes.

So the amount of bleeding might have decreased.

But nothing to worry. That will not at all effect your infertility treatment.

The success of IUI depends on the correct timing of insemination around or during the predicted ovulation.

So relax. Avoid stress.

That will absolutely doesn't effect the IUI .

Hope this satisfies your query
Feel free to discuss further.

Brief Answer:
The success rate is variable

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
I got your query.

In my opinion the success rate of IUI depends on many factors and is variable.

The success rate varies between 4-20%.

The success rate can be increased by simultaneous use of fertility drugs.

IUI can be tried for upto 3-4 cycles under the age of 40 years.

If there is no result even after 3 cycles IVF can be tried.

Avoid stress and anxiety regarding pregnancy as they cause hormonal imbalance and delay fertility further.

Relax.

Hope this satisfies your query.

Feel free to discuss further.

Brief Answer:
It does not affect your pregnancy

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
I have gone through your query.
I understand your concern.

In my opinion the artificial nails does not affect the infertiliy treatment or pregnancy.

But you need to take proper care as there is chance of nail infection with artificial nails.

And the adhesive might be allergic so try them on one nail first .

Otherwise they don't cause any harm in relation to pregnancy.

Hope this satisfies your query.
Feel free to discuss further.
