Brief Answer:
Can be successful when done properly.

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for posting your query.

Progynova is given to prepare the endometrium prior to the expected implantation of the fertilized egg. This is done when there is improper endometrial preparation naturally due to hormone deficiency.

First time IUI can be successful when all other factors causing infertility have been taken care of. This includes using drugs to induce ovulation, correction of associated hormonal defects, establishing tubal patency and a near normal male fertility. The success rate is between 5-20 percent in each cycle, improving with better precautions.

Please mention the values like progressive motility, abnormal forms and liquefaction. Deviation from the normal in these parameters is of high significance in determining the success rate of the procedure. If these values are normal, slightly low sperm count has almost no affect on the outcome.

Hope your query has been answered. Please feel free to contact for further clarifications. I will be happy to help.

my sister is 14 years old and she has a hormone deficiency that stunts her growth and halted puberty. the doctors took her in for an MRI and they told my mom that they found a mass on her brain. they dont know what it is and my sister doesnt know that they even have any results. when she finds out she is going to want to know whats going to happen and be comforted by family so i need to know what do you think that this mass could be, is it harmful and how YOU would proceed from just finding the mass.
