Question: I had undergone follicular study from 9th day period.. On 14 th day of follicular test Dr. has remarked that "recently ruptured follicle seen (8mm Trilaminar) Evacuated Follicular Fluid seen in all-de-sac". After seen the Follicular study Dr. has prescribed HSG injection 5000IU. Please clarify me at this stage this injection is useful or otherwise.

The path of treatment taken is absolutely taken. Although normally the Inj HCG 5000IU is usually given just before the follicle ruptures.But of you have multiple follicles which are yet to rupture then this injection would help in rupturing the follicles and hence,ovulation.This is the best time to have intercourse. In case this cycle is not fruitful,then stay on the same treatment plan. Continue follicular monitoring day 9,11,13,14,15 etc.Then if the largest follicle is at least 18-22 mm in size, Inj HCG can be given again.

Hi,I am a 31 y/o currently seeing an infertility doctor for my husbands low sperm count. We know we have to do ivf/icsi and we've already paid for it. I went to my clinic for day 2 and 3 testing and they cancelled our cycle b/c they said that I have elevated FSH levels. They said it happens sometimes and that I could just be stressed. They told me to come back next cycle and try again. Could this mean I could be going through early menopause or premature ovarian failure? Are there other tests they could do before getting a definitive answer?

I am 46 and my last 4 periods have been a day long. Mostly heavy spotting. Hot flashes are getting worse also. Does it sound like I am close to menopause? Another factor is my mother was 48 when she had her last period and so was her mother 48.
