I need to find out what kind of dr would I need to get as I am unable to carry a baby and my niece wants to carry for my husband an I. As I have had a lot of medical issues, she has offered an egg of her own as well. When I called a fertility doctor here to see if he could do it he said that they couldn't.

All important semen parameters are abnormal in your case so chances of natural conception are quite low . But in rare circumstances pregnancy can occur with such low counts and motility . Consider yourself very lucky if pregnancy occurs naturally. All the best....

doctor1 MD

Hello
Thanks for writing to us with your health concern.
THis could be a mild bit of spotting.
It often occurs due to the drugs / injections which are given for stimulation of the egg follicles in the ovaries.
So do not worry, it is due to their hormonal effect.
It could also be due to stress,...

doctor1 MD

Hi,
If everything is normal, its better to go for two cycles of IUI with inj. HMG & then laparoscopy if you don't conceive. Laparoscopy is invasive operation & you can avoid it if you conceive with IUI. If you don't conceive in 2-3 cycles, then you can go for laparoscopy.
Wish you good...

Hi, I am 33 years now . I am married for the last 11 years got a kid after 5yrs with treatment in 2006 ..No IUI and No IVF . after that got ecotopic pregenency in 2007 and left tube removed. Now for the last one year i am trying for second kid.All my blood reports ,AMH, HSG reports are normal.Still i am not seeing the positive result. We decided to go for IUI from now onwards.Can somebody suggest this would help or not and what could be my problem.

doctor1 MD

Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

I think that you should still be concerned about the remaining tube. For the same reasons that you had the ectopic in 2007, your other tube might be diseased as well in a way that was not detectable on HSG. There should be consideration of a...

Hi, I had an ultrasound done yesterday 4/17. There was just one 20mm follicle. They gave me my Ovidril shot at 4pm yesterday. Today at 12:30pm ( only 20 hrs post ovidril ) I had my IUI done. Today on ultrasound my follicle had still not ruptured. What does this mean ? Was it too early for the IUI since the follicle had not yet ruptured ? Will the washed sperm die before the follicle has a chance to rupture ? What are the chances that the follicle may not even rupture ? I m scared the IUI wasn t timed properly as the egg hasn t even been released yet there are sperm waiting that may die at any moment :((
