    Sorry for my delayed response. If none of the pregnancies had a heartbeat, it would seem there is an early developmental issue.
    I suggest when next pregnant, report early to your Gynaecologist and he can place you on a cocktail of medications followed by an early ultrasound scan at about 6 weeks gestation.

    • All pregnancies were through IUI since I had tried a year without success, I was always put on progesterone and I have PCOS.thanks

  • Dear Nicole, thank you for your question.
    I’m sorry to hear about your recurrent miscarriages. How many weeks pregnant were you when you miscarried? Was a heartbeat seen before the miscarriages?
    I don’t think we have enough evidence to suggest that the male factor is predominant because a morphology of 5% is within normal limits.
    You mention that…[Read more]

    • Thanks so much, doctor. We appreciate the response.

    Thank you for your enquiry. Asherman’s can be very difficult to treat depending of the severity.
    One would have to review your previous test results like HSG and Hysteroscopy before commenting further

    IVF

  • Georges Memorial posted a new activity comment 1 year, 8 months ago

    There are a number of issues here. If you’ve had sub mucous fibroids removed, you need to have a Hysteroscopy to rule out adhesions or scarring.
    I hope you’ve had an HSG to confirm the patency of your fallopian tubes and your husband has done a Semen Analysis.
    If yes to both, you can have 3-5 stimulated cycles monitored by serial ultrasound scans…[Read more]

    • Ok. Thank you sir. I have had Hsg done and seen analysis too for my husband. Both are ok. Tubes are patent. However am a wee bit confused here sir. Pls how will my eggs be harvested when the follicles won’t rupture, even with Hcg treatment?

    • IVF

  • Georges Memorial posted a new activity comment 1 year, 8 months ago

    Thank you for your question. You didn’t mention your age as this can have some bearing on ovulation. As a general rule of thumb, if you’ve been trying to conceive for 3 years without success, it’s time to move to IVF.

    • @georgesmemorial) thanks for the response. Am 32. Been trying for 3 years. First year, I had fibroids, submucosal, subserol etc. I was bleeding like hell during my periods, severely anaemic, the doctor didn’t want to remove them initially but when it kept on escalating he had to remove them. I waited like six months after surgery to start trying…[Read more]

    Dear Ma Iyaram, I’m really sorry to hear about your IVF experiences so far particularly the most recent failure.
    One cannot put a cause to this particular failure until you have undergone some investigations.
    I suggest you do a Hysteroscopy, and Thyroid Function tests.
    Age can also be a factor particularly if your over 40 years old

  • Georges Memorial posted a new activity comment 2 years, 1 month ago

    Thank you for your question.
    Endometriosis can damage the ovaries and surgery for endometriomas should be performed with care.
    I suggest you do a blood test called AMH to check your Ovarian Reserve before any further surgery.
    Laparoscopy is the approach of choice but you must ensure you go to a good laparoscopic Gynaecological Surgeon

    Thank you for your questions.
    Success rates are linked to age. For women under 35years old we achieve success rates of 35-40%. Our Donor cycles achieve success rates in excess of 45%
    We do not transfer more the 3 Blastocysts in any treatment cycle

    Dear Ivuoma,
    Thank you for your question.
    I think you should go straight to IVF at this stage, particularly as you’ve been trying unsuccessfully for 4 years and there is a possibility of your Husband having a low sperm count. IVF is certainly the next step

    :nope:

    • Thank you, Doctor Faye! :good:

    • Thank you @nicole and Dr. Faye. I have more questions please,

      1. Does having a retroverted uterus affect ivf success.
      2. I am looking at doing an ICSI instead, what do you think please?
      3. Also for the fundal uterine synechiae which the radiologist said was insignificant, what do you also advice? Thanks Doctor. Pardon my plenty questions.

      • Sorry I didn’t mention @georgesmemorial in my previous question. I repeated it below:

  • Dear Isi, thank you for your enquiry. You state that you have peritubal adhesions on your left tube. Was this diagnosed by HSG or Laparoscopy?
    If haven’t had either, I suggest you have an HSG done to establish whether or not the left tube is patent. This will determine how soon you should progress to IVF or IUI. Thanks

    • Thank you so much Doctor for your response. I had an HSG abt 3months ago which showed patent left fallopian tube with mild/moderate peri-tubal adhesions.

    Thank you Linda for your query.
    After 3 years of trying unsuccessfully to conceive, your best option is IVF.
    This is particularly applicable in your case where there is now a male factor.
