Medicated Iui

Is there more chance of falling pregnant using a medicated cycle than a natural one?

Im not due for a medicated one until my 7th and 8th cycles on the NHS, so would i be able to either get the drugs from my G.P or pay for them privately if theres more chance of getting a :BFP:?

It all depends on your ovulation, are you having scans to confirm ovulation during your IUI at the moment? Have previous tests shown problems with ovulation?

Nope i have'nt had any scans or tests yet, just day 11 bloods every month, On my first cycle i got a blood test a week after basting to confirm ovulation, im due to get a lap after the 4th cycle though. So far its been diagnosed as male infertility.

mmmmmm

Ok, so what type of 'male fertility' have they diagnosed? What is the issue with hubby?

If you have a blood test on day 11, how do they know what day you have ovulated and what day to book you in for your IUI? Do you have one 'baste' per cycle?

We havent been told what type of male infertility it is just that there's no sperm.

Basicaly when dh was a baby he had a double and single hernia which resulted in heaps of ops, then when he was 16 one of his testicles dropped and twisted which resulted in more op's to take it up and somewhere in between all his ops the surgeon whilst stitching him back up caught his testilcle and tubes resulting in him only being left with one testicle and infertile.

After my day 11 bloods which is for my LH surge, I go in the next day for basting and i only have one insem per cycle.

sorry to ask, only it wasn't clear

The last two bloods that you have had, have they shown ovulation - do you have a short cycle?

That's all good then!

As you are ovulating without medication, I assume that is the reason why your consultant is happy to carry on this way. It may be an idea to mention it to him/her though and ask if they would then do scans so that your basting is done within a very short window of ovulation

Hi, Milner
According to my clinic using drugs does not increase the chances of pregnancy in an IUI cycle if you are already ovulating regularly. It is handy (and advised) for those who do not ovulate at all or who do not ovulate predictably to assist them to grow a follicle and ovulate at the correct time in oder to have IUI. Some clinics will also give drugs to over 30's or over 35's even if they do ovulate regularly.

If you are ovulating regularly then the only benefit to using drugs is that you may produce more than one egg. This is also a problem with using drugs as most clinics will then cancel your cycle if you produce 3 or more follicles. If you produce a larger number they may convert to IVF but few clinics will offer this option.

Good luck with your treatment.
