Brief answer....explained below
Detailed answer.....
Thanks for the query.
I have read your query and understand your concern.
There is no reason to get despair now.
You should wait for another 4 days to get a blood test called as Serum BETA HCG done provided you are not taking any injectable HCG for luteal support.
This will clear the position of your pregnancy.
Any negative test at the moment doesn't mean that pregnancy is absent because it is only 10 days since IUI which is quite early to decide about the pregnancy.
I hope it helps,however you are most welcome to revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck

Hello doctor
I am basically a pcod patient. I was given clomipure 100mg..(day 10)
After which I was given humog 75iu for 8 days (day 14 to day 21) where I developed one follicle of 2.0x 1.95.. After that I was given ovipure(day 23)..
Iui on day day24 and day25 which is 5 and 6 oct.. Asked to do a pregnancy test on 21 Oct.. As I got a negative test today at home which is my day 10.. I am a bit worried.. As I have heard that people get at least faint positive after day 10 if its positive..
Thank you

There is nothing to get worried about it.
It is not necessary to have a faint line on 10th day even if you are pregnant.
Get the blood BETA HCG estimation done on 21st oct.
You can also do a urine test for pregnancy on around 24 or 25th.

I have been diagnosed with azoospermia. I underwent testis biopsy and the doctors found no sperm. They told me I had hypospermatogenesis. Then I underwent testicular FNAC in epidydymis and doctors found occasional mature sperm along with spermatids and others. Then the doctors advised me to undertake HUCOG & HUMOG injections for about a month and a half (total of 15 injections) and again took semen test. There was no sperm in semen test. Now, the doctors have told me that I am suffering from obstructive azoospermia and that I should undergo ICSI.

Please let me know if ICSI is the only option for me (OR) is there any treatment for hypospermatogenesis (and) obstructive azoospermia.

Hi Doc, i an TTC and was on Siphene 100mg twice a day and took Humog injections from Day 3 to Day 5 of my periods. Now on day 8, i have 5 follicles in my right ovary and 1 in my left. My endometrium thickness is 5mm on day 8. Will the endoterium thickness increase by the time i ovulate (maybe day 12 or 14) since the follicles are already of good size and my radiologist said that they can rupture earlier.
