Your Questions About Follistim

Susan asks…

huge Cyst after IUI and Follistim?

Hi,
I am so disappointed.I did an IUI with follistim last cycle.My periods came 2 days before my scheduled day for blood pregnancy test.I had to start a new cycle with follistim and iui but unfortunately i got to know i have a huge cyct measuring 44 mm when i went for CD 3 sonogram and i would not be able to continue iui+follistim this cycle.
My RE told me to have desogen(birth control pill) this cycle.She told me that would help the cyst to shrink.Have you ever heard of having birth control pill to shrink cyst?
I really don’t want to have birth control pills as i have heard the cyct will disappear on it own.Pls advice.
P.S.I never had any cyst before so it happened because of follistim.

Pregnancy Tips answers:

Hey

Yes the BC does shrink the cysts! I had no idea i had pcos until after 2/3 months after i stopped taking the bc pills. The doctor later also explained to me how bc bills help pcos. YOu should google it to find the detail.

I had gotten pregnant right after leaving my bc pills .. But because doctor or myself didn’t know about the pcos .. I miscarried at 9 weeks.. After my d&c the doctor found out about my pcos (scan) i started bc again for three months and also was on glucophage, now when i got my scan i had no cysts.. So i stopped the bc pill and am just on glucophage (metformin)

Trust your doctor. The readers here all haven’t been through what we hae so they don’t know what they are talking about. Do as your Doctor says. If you need any help you can email me :)

Good luck hun!

Ken asks…

Does anyone know the statistics/chances of getting pregnant with Fostimon? I have PCOS?

My Dr. wants to give me Fostimon 75 IU for 10 days (approx. he will monitor me closely through the process). But I was wondering if anyone knows the statistics for this med. I’m wondering what the chances of it actually working are, and also what the chances of having multiples are? Thanks for your help1

Pregnancy Tips answers:

I didn’t use fostimon but I used follistim which I believe is similar (did some online searching and found that follistim is what is usually given in US and Fostimon in UK. Don’t know if that applies here or not.
I can tell you that using follistim (which if I am understanding correctly does the same basic thins as fostimon) you have a good chance of concieving on PCOS. I have it and I did. I also got pregnant with twins but chance of multiples depends on your response and the lvls doc allows. If you really don’t want mulitiples your doc will probably keep you on a lower lvl of the meds. Will take longer to get pregnant. If multiples are not an issue that is also something to tell your doc. More eggs equal more chances of conception (most docs won’t allow more then about 3 though in case all fertalize unless you have already discussed reduction).

Betty asks…

about the medicine name of FOLISTIM 50?

i looking forward to be a pregnant and doctor given me above tablet

Pregnancy Tips answers:

Follistim contains follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), a naturally occurring hormone. FSH is important in the development of follicles (eggs) produced by the ovaries.

Follistim is used to stimulate a follicle to develop and mature. It is used when a woman desires pregnancy and her ovaries can produce a follicle but hormonal stimulation is not sufficient to make the follicle mature. Follistim is also used to stimulate the development of multiple eggs for in vitro fertilization.

Treatment with Follistim increases the likelihood of multiple births. Multiple births carry additional risk both for the mother and for fetuses. Discuss the risk of multiple births with your healthcare provider.

Mark asks…

Anyone ever tried Menopur injections to conceive?

any luck or reactions to it?? Is it more effective than the oral meds, because none of them worked for me (Chlomid like meds).

Pregnancy Tips answers:

I did Follistim and Menopur injections for my IVF cycles. I did conceive on IVF #2 but unfortunately it was ectopic and I lost it. My RE started me on those meds because of my FSH level and he felt that they would be much stronger than oral meds. I responded very well the the meds and made lots of eggs. I’ve met several women who tried oral meds and didn’t conceive until they started injections. I never had any side effects to Menopur but have heard that some women do experience them. I was able to resume normal activities. I did feel some bloating (It makes your ovaries huge) and had to keep my pants unbuttoned or wear loose clothing. The only bad thing about the Menopur (and this was just my response) is that it burned a little while going in, just for a minute. I had to have my husband do the injection or it would have taken my all evening! I’m due to start cycle #3 and will continue with the Menopur because I’ve responded to well to it.

Sandy asks…

low progesterone levels and trying to conieve?

I have been on clomid for 6mths now, this being my last month at 150mg, before i start IUI, I have only ovulated twice but not coneived, so this month is my last chance! I do not use opk’s but have day 18 and 21 blood tests to determine if i ovulated or not, last month i did not! i had FSH tests done day 2 of my cycle came back normal, my HSG was clear! so my problem is my progesterone levels, is their anything else i can take to boost them levels, clomid does not seem to help! any simialr stories!

Pregnancy Tips answers:

I’m taking clomid too

ask your doctor if it will help for you, and google it yourself

Richard asks…

Can someone let me see their chart that ended in a pregnancy?

This is my first month charting and have no clue what to look for. I am still waiting on ovulation this month. My temps have been 97.5-98.00 so far for 11 days. Does that sound right? Thanks!

Pregnancy Tips answers:

Go onto fertilityfriend.com and there is a link to see other people’s charts. You can search by those who got pregnant (among many other things) and see a ton of people’s charts. Your temps seem fine. Good luck!

Laura asks…

triphasic chart and pregnancy question?

Has anyone ever gotten pregnant without having a triphasic chart? If you don’t chart at the same time everyday and your temperature fluctuates, does that have an affect on actual ovulation or does it just make it harder for you to pin point the day that you ovulate? One more question, my bbt has been 97.00-97.97 degrees this whole cycle (not temping at the same time everyday) does this mean it was an anovulatory cycle? SORRY. this is my first time bbt’ng

Pregnancy Tips answers:

Many pregnant charts are not triphasic, so it’s totally possible. If you don’t chart at the same time every day and your temp fluctuates, this will not affect ovulation. It only affects the ease with which ovulation can be detected. If your temps are very variable, it could be that you ovulated and just wasn’t able to detect it because you weren’t taking it at the same time. My first time charting, my temps were also very variable. The more you get used to doing it the better (less fluctuating) it gets.

Hang in there! Good luck and lots of baby dust!!!

Daniel asks…

I want to chart my temps for pregnany & ovulation, NEED HELP PLEASE?

I got a digital thermometer
do i put the thermometer in the front of the mouth or at the back?
do i sit up in bed or lay down?
what should the temps be for pregnancy and ovulation
i never done this before

Pregnancy Tips answers:

Put it under your tongue. Keep the thermometer with arm’s reach so you don’t have to move a lot to get it in the morning- do it lying down cos sitting up is movement.

Temperatures vary between woman. However they will become higher AFTER ovulation (it doesn’t show you when you’re ovulating, only afterwards) due to the progesterone. If you’re pregnant the temps remain higher cos the progesterone continues to be produced- if you’re not pregnant then the temperature will drop the day before or the day of your period as progesterone levels fall.

I suggest joining (free) http://www.fertilityfriend.com and use this to help plot your temperatures. They also have loads of information about what they show and how to take them.

Ruth asks…

could my chart show pregnancy? ?

http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/21fd40

could my chart show pregnancy? my temp never really went up. i am not late for period yet. but i noticed one day of egg white CM and there was a drop in temp was that implantation or did i just not ovulate this month. this is the first month i have charted i am new to all this. i am very confused i had a couple days of fertile cm but my temp never went high. now i saw one day of egg white and thought that might actually be my ovulation but it stiopped so now i have kida sticky but sort of creamy and i have been sleeping like crazy i have actually turged down sex cause i am so tired

Pregnancy Tips answers:

This looks like an anovulatory chart to me.

Joseph asks…

When did you test and get a positive?

I was looking through pregnancy charts on fertilityfriend’s website and I notices that several got positive pregnancy tests at 9 days past ovulation and a few were even as early at 8 dpo. I was just wondering if any of you have got a positive hpt that early? I am now 5 dpo and my temp spiked higher even more so today and I normally do not ovulate so I am very excited. However, I will probably wait until I miss my period to test. Just wondering what your experiences were.

Here is my chart if you want to look

http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/honeyb1

Thanks for all your advice, opinions and prayers. Best of luck to all those ttc!

Pregnancy Tips answers:

I really hope that you are pregnant. I know you have been trying for some time. I am 13 dpo and don’t have a positive yet. It could be that my symptoms are me thinking I am. I hope we both are. Baby dust to you and send it back. LOL. Keep me posted. I have been praying for you and everything. I have seen you on here answering a lot of questions and I know you have waited long enough. Good Luck

Betty asks…

If my temperature has only risen to 98.06 Farenheit max post-ovulation does that mean I cant be pregnant?

I am on fertility friend and I have only just started charting, I am not sure when I ovulated but I have taken 5 temps every morning so far which I know for a fact they are post-ov temps (just not sure WHEN I ovulated).
On the 1st and 2nd of feb my temp was 97.52 farenheit, on the 3rd feb my temp was 98.06 farenheit, on the 4th feb it went back down to 97.52 farenheit, and today it went down to 97.32 farenheit.

Does this mean since my temp is so low and is in the low 97s I cannot be pregnant? I’ve looked at most pregnancy charts and most of their temps are in the 98s and 99s.

I have been having cramps which got worse last night (was awake most of the night) since the 2nd feb, I’ve been extremely tired recently and falling asleep in the late afternoon/early evening (I never ever fall asleep), I got up twice to go to the toilet last night which I never have to do, I have been having bad headaches since the 3rd/4th, overnight last night when I went to bed I’ve developed a bad cold, and I feel really hot but I haven’t got a fever.
My period is not due until between the 9th-11th Feb, but I noticed I started having slight cramps as early as the 2nd Feb which is unusual for me.

This is my chart, it’s not very good since I’ve only just started charting LOL!.
http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/35b548/

Pregnancy Tips answers:

You can still be pregnant without your temperature raising.

The charting and etc can only be done with a pinch of salt and needs to be done a couple of cycles to work out your usual pattern.

Take a test on your due date. It’s the only way to really tell

Ken asks…

Husband cheated on me, got another girl pregnant… Is divorce the best choice?

My husband and I have been together for 7 years. When we were 18 (or been together for 1 year) he cheated on me. He confessed and told me that he felt horrible about it. I believed him and I loved him a lot, so I decided to get over that and hoped it would never happen again. We’ve been married for 2 years now and I’m 29 weeks pregnant with our first baby, and I thought that we were very happy together, but a week ago he told me that he got another girl pregnant. I was obviously furious, but he told me that the girl wasn’t going to let him go easily (I assumed as much) and wanted financial help. At this point I’m so pissed I can’t even think about the other girl and the baby, and before we even discuss what we want to do with our relationship, he starts telling me he wants to use our JOINT BANK ACCOUNT to pay for the girl‘s hospital bills and everything… I told him he was f*cking crazy and I wasn’t going to pay for anything of hers. I told him that I wanted him to move out and he turned it around on me, saying he only slept with her because I made him “insecure”, but that he loved me and wanted me to forgive him. This is the second freaking time this has happened, and now we have an unborn daughter we need to think about.

At this point I’m debating on whether or not I want a divorce. I know this is obviously a personal decision and I can’t rely on other people to make it for me, but.. I don’t know, although he has put me through a lot of sh*t, I know that he’s the father of our baby and I don’t want our child to be raised with seperated parents. At the same time though, I don’t know if he’ll really stop (didn’t stop before, don’t know if that will change now). The fact he wants me to PAY for this other kid of his is what drives me over the edge, like I need to pay for his mistakes, too. I do love him, but now I don’t know if he loves me enough to quit making stupid decisions. I feel so stupid for letting this happen, so I don’t know if MY love is enough to keep us together anymore.

Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.

Pregnancy Tips answers:

This is how they came up with the say, “Once a cheater, always a cheater!” It’s bad enough that he cheated on you not once, but twice (that you know about), but then he has the nerve to blamed YOU for what HE did.

Don’t let love and the fact that you’re pregnant, blind you to what’s going on here. First thing you do is protect your self and your baby financially. Without saying a word to your husband, immediately remove all the money from your joint bank account and put it in another bank in your name only. Have your bank statements sent to a post office box or to a trusted relative’s house, so he can’t get a hold of them.

Your husband is responsible for supporting this illegitimate child, but it’s not your problem and you and your child shouldn’t have to suffer, because your husband can’t keep his pants zipped.

No one can tell you to stay or leave your husband. But you have to realize that if your husband truly loved you, he would never have cheated on you. He’s selfish and only thinks of him self. If you stay with him, you will have to accept that he will cheat on you again and his illegitimate child will be apart of your life. He will go to this woman’s house to visit the child, take money out of your joint account to support the child and eventually the child will start having week-end visits at your house.

Ask your self, do you love this man so much that you’re willing to deal with this? You don’t want to raise your child in a home with divorced parents, but do you really want to raise your daughter to believe that she must put up with a man cheating on her. That she doesn’t deserve to be treated with respect and have a husband who will be faithful to her?

Sharon asks…

My best friends little girl is out of control, how do i handle it?

My best friend got pregnant with a beautiful little girl when she was 17. Her little girl is 3 yrs old now. dont get me wrong I love that little girl, I really do. But sometimes,on weekends I almost dread going out with my best friend when she takes her. She has learned that to get what she wants, (no matter what that may be) she has to cry or scream, and it almost never fails, shes even started throwin & hitting. Im 10 wks preg. now and I think my nerves are a little on edge. I havent said anything to her, I dont want to upset her but I just dont know what to do. My wedding was last weekend and she screamed (very loudly) through part of it. And now my friend and I are going to start walking together, she will most def. take her w/ us. But we never get very far. Shes not always that bad, just most of the time. I dont know if theres anything I can do about this or not just wondering what other people would do, or if maybe I am letting it get to me too much since im pregnant. Any advice?

Pregnancy Tips answers:

It is likely that your nerves are extra sensitive since you are pregnant. I was very emotional in the beginning of my pregnancy. I was never moody before I got pregnant but WOW did I get a taste of what it was like. My husband is very greatful that I am back to myself. If your friends daughter is doing things to bother you I would tell her daughter….look thats not nice to act like that and I wont come see you anymore if you keep throwing a fit. Explain to her that you are pregnant and that there is a little baby inside your tummy that hates it whenever she screams and gets mad and cries in your tummy!! Depending on how much of a brat she is this may work to some degree. Make little comments to her when she is out of line about what she is doing wrong and that it makes you sad whenever she acts that way and that she needs to act like a big girl. Tell her mother to stand by you whenever you are sideline scolding her daughter and maybe both of you can work together to get this little girl back to being that little angel that you both wanted whenever her lil momma had her!! Good luck and hang in there!

Sandy asks…

what are the best ways of having a sexual intercourse, without getting a girl pregnant?

i just want to know the best tips of having a sexual intercourse with a girl, without getting the girl pregnant. i want to know the tips for guys and girls. like what are the best types of condoms? should the girl use birth control? give me any information that you have. anything will help.

oh is it true if a man masturbates before having sexual intercourse this will not make the girl pregnant?

please tell me everything that you know. i am very curious and when my time comes for my 1st time i just want to be safe from everything.

thank you.

Pregnancy Tips answers:

Using two forms of birth control. Condoms and her getting on some form of prescription birth control. Lifestyles(condoms) is a good brand. Keep them in a safe place such as a drawer of your night stand. Keeping them in your wallet isn’t a good idea. Make sure they aren’t expired. Check for holes,rips.

And no,even if you masturbate before having sex. You can certainly still get a girl pregnant.

Charles asks…

Dating a girl who is pregnant/has a child by my best friend,should I try it?

She and I get along very well. We’ve been friends since middle school and we’re in our 20′s now. Her and I have always had a bond but it was more of the best friend/she’s my sister bond because she was dating my best friend. Well he really did do her wrong. He cheated on her with numerous other women and then when she found out she was pregnant by him,he left her(he also has two other kids on the way so three at one time from three different women). I didn’t know my ‘friend’ was that much of a a**hole,if I had known I would’ve tried to help her out before things got this bad.

I guess the feelings I was trying to…ignore just came out completely. She came to me when he broke up with her and I comforted her and things from there just got super complicated(in my mind anyway). I REALLY do want to be with her but I don’t know about dealing with my ‘friend’ and him being the father of the child. I know if I do get with her…let’s just say he’s one of those people who doesn’t want a girl but when somebody else gets her he makes their life a living hell. And there’s no way of telling him he can’t come around because that’s his baby. But at the same time,I know he’s not going to be a good father and influence(he has 2 kids already here plus three on the way and hasn’t seen the two in about 6 months—see my point?) and I’d be a better one,plus I want to take care of his ex also,she deserves better.

Should I try it? Should I wait until the child is older? What do you think?

Pregnancy Tips answers:

Well, casually talk to him about her if he wants a future with her or if he is done. The way you talk makes it seems he is a womanizer and is done or he wouldn’t have cheated and ditched her. Ask him if he has a problem with you getting closer to her. Since he’s your friend, its better you say something than surprise him and put him in defensive. Maybe he’ll be upset anyways but at least you went about it the right way, no sneaking around. Even if he says no, you can say you care a lot about her and want to be there for her, but in the end, its her choice to go. Wish him luck and move on.

I don’t think she wants to go back to him so since you really dig her, go for it.
Yes, immature & selfish men sometimes throw something away and only want it when someone else wants it, but that shouldn’t stop you. If he gets out of hand, file harassment charges or get a restraining order. He can’t be that bad if he was a good friend of yours, besides the cheating on his gf etc?

You have a lot of fear/reservations, some is natural, and some is just speculation. Live for now but just take things slow and cautiously. I don’t think you need to wait years for the child to get older.

Pregnancy Tips answers:

Just be there for her. If you were her best friend but you love her now then you are in a perfect position to help her. She needs someone to help her out in making a decision. Do not try to force anything on her tho what she decides will ultimately be here choice. If you love her like you say you do then stay with her and be her support no matter what

Your Questions About Femoral Vein

Susan asks…

What is the largest size catheter that can be inserted into typical human femoral veins?

French size or mm outer diameter

Pregnancy Tips answers:

“French” units are just mm in circumfrence… This is interchangeable with diameter.

The issue with femoral cannulation isn’t “what is the largest cannula that you can insert”, the question should be what size is needed, and how big the patient is.

Cardiopulmonary bypass can be performed from the femoral artery and vein using 8mm diameter cannulas in adults. The entire flow to the body can be routed through this.

Introducer sheaths for angiographic catheters and instruments can be 10 fr., and introducer sheaths for things like Swan Ganz catheters can be up to the 9 fr. Range.

For fluid infusion, high volume high rate optimization requires the shortest fattest tubing available. The MAC catheter which doubles for Swan Ganz introduction has the best flow at 9 french. There are larger tools available but these are for dialysis and have 2 large lumens, neither of which are as big as the MAC. The overall size of these large dual lumen dialysis catheters is in the 14 fr. Range.

The question isn’t “what is the largest size”… Because you can cannulate with whatever will fit. The question is what size do you need, and why.

Maria asks…

diagram of the artery vein and nerve in the groin needed?

I have looked everywhere for a diagram of the nerve,artery and femoral vein in the groin and how to inject safely into the vein every where for my studys but carnt find one,if anyone knows a link i would be very greatful.
thankyou

Pregnancy Tips answers:

The vein is always medial to the artery in the groin. The nerve is lateral to the artery.
A simple way to remember this is to use the pneumonic NAVEL –
going from lateral to medial (outside to inside) it is

Nerve
Artery
VEin
Lymphatics

Just palpate the artery and keeping your finger on the femoral pulse, inject or draw blood just medially into/from the vein

Carol asks…

What is the path blood circulates through the body?

I need to know the exact step that blood travels through the body. I know how blood circulates through the heart but I am confused where it goes after that. More precisely I need to know what comes after each of the vessel listed below.

Common carotid artery
Internal jugular vein
Subclavian vein
Renal vein
Femoral vein
Common iliac vein
Brachial artery
Subclavian artery
Cardiac vein
Brachiocephalic vein
Brachiocephalic artery
Axillary artery

Pregnancy Tips answers:

CCA gives off Internal C. A. & External C.A. (lots of branches from both)
Internal Jugular Vein drains to (–>) Subclavian Vein
Subclavian Vein –> Superior Vena Cava
Renal Vein –> Inferior Vena Cava (IVC)
Femoral Vein —> External iliac Vein
Common Iliac Vein –> IVC
Brachial art. Gives off radial art & ulnar art.
Subclavian artery–> Axillary art
There are several cardiac veins and they drain into the coronary sinus and into the heart.
Brachiocephalic vein—> Superior vena cava
Brachiocephalic art–> Subclavian art & common carotid
Axillary art –>lots of branches but it continues as brachial art.

Blood goes: Heart, Aorta, Big Arteries, Arteries, Arterioles, Capillaries, Venules, Veins, Big Veins, Vena Cava and back to the heart.

Donna asks…

Provide the name of the missing vein…?

1. Right subclavian, —-, superior vena cava

4. Radial vein,—, axillary vein
5. Great saphenous vein,—, external iliac vein
6. Lungs,—, left atrium
7. Kidney,—, inferior vena cava

Pregnancy Tips answers:

1. Brachiocephalic vein
2. Popliteal vein
3. Common iliac vein
4. Brachial vein
5. Femoral vein
6. Left pulmonary vein
7. Renal vein

Lizzie asks…

Whats the main deep vein of the leg?

So confused :S
Its such a simple question but I cant find the answer anywhere. Looked in my Atlas and Anatomy book, but they just emphasize on the arteries, ignoring the veins -.-

What I dont understand is, when the femoral vein extends into the popliteal fossa, it becomes the popliteal vein right?

After that what does it become lower down in the leg?
Is it the Posterior Tibial vein? (because of the accompanying artery?)

So far, I understand there are only two main veins in the lower limb. which are:
1. Superficial- Saphenous and its tributaries
2. Deep- femoral and its tributaries

now are there any other veins besides these?

Thanks

Pregnancy Tips answers:

Common femoral vein in groin divides into saphenous (superficial vein) and superficial femoral vein (which is actually deeper than saphenous). SFV will then continue down the thigh into the back of the knee where the name become popliteal. Popliteal then becomes anterior tibial veins, posterior tibial veins, peroneal veins.

Your Questions About Pregnyl

Michael asks…

Ovulation after the pill?

How long did it take you to ovulate after coming off the pill? I came off the pill in November after a year and I am still not ovulating. Is there anything I can do to get my eggs going?

Pregnancy Tips answers:

May b u need to see the reproductive endocrinologist, she can perform some tests and may be can find out the reason why u r not ovulating. Sometimes we need to take a jump start.. Like
Clomiphene citrate (Clomid) stimulates the release of hormones that trigger ovulation. Clomiphene is typically the first choice of treatment for unexplained lack of ovulation because of its ease of use-it’s taken orally rather than injected, doesn’t usually cause severe side effects, and doesn’t usually require daily monitoring.
If clomiphene does not work, your doctor might try hormone shots. These shots, called gonadotropins. Include Pregnyl, Pergonal, Gonal F, and rFSH. They directly stimulate the ovaries to produce mature eggs.
If you have polycystic ovary syndrome, your doctor may try a medication called metformin in combination with clomiphene. It can help correct insulin resistance and elevated male hormone levels, often starting egg production and regular menstrual cycles.
But 1st u need to know the actual reason behind not ovulating.

you cant get a false positive can you??

so i took the test last night and found out that i was pregnant… and i’ve heard of getting a negative and it being wrong… but you cant get a false positive can you?

just wondering… needed to ease my mind…

Pregnancy Tips answers:

What Affects the Test

Reasons you may not be able to have the test or why the results may not be helpful include:

Taking the test very early in your pregnancy. HCG may not be found. In this case, the test kit may show that you are not pregnant when you really are pregnant. This is called a false-negative result.

If you have drunk a lot of fluid, your urine may be diluted and this may also cause a false-negative result.

Having soap in the urine collection cup. This may cause the test results to show that you are pregnant when you are not pregnant. This is called a false-positive result.

False-positive results may also be caused by reading the test at the wrong time, letting the test equipment get warm, having protein or blood in the urine, or having hCG hormone in the urine from some other cause.

Taking certain medicines, such as chlorpromazine hydrochloride (Thorazine) and methadone hydrochloride (Dolophine, Methadose).

Taking fertility medicines that contain human chorionic gonadotropin, such as Profasi or Pregnyl.

Not reading the result at the right time as shown on the instructions. If you read the result too early or too late, the color change may not be accurate and you will need to retest.

Steven asks…

does progyluton help to get pregnant?

Pregnancy Tips answers:

Since progyluton works in a way that is similar to the pill without serving as an actual contraceptive, it may be given to women with PCOS who are trying to conceive. In other words, the drug will lessen the symptoms of PCOS by regulating the menstrual cycle and though it won’t help you ovulate, it won’t cause a complete nullification of your fertility since, unlike the Pill, progyluton does not inhibit ovulation.

Some doctors will prescribe other drugs for specific times during your cycle, such as Clomid or Pregnyl once menstrual cycles are under control with progyluton, if you wish to conceive.

Thomas asks…

what are the regular stages of iui treatment?is it b painful?

Pregnancy Tips answers:

Maria asks…

Starting Clomid on day 6?

I have irregular periods. My Dr. put me on Clomid. I started taking Clomid a day late. I started on day 6. Will this hurt my chances of ovulating? Also will Clomid make my cycle regular?
Thanks for your help!
~Esme

Pregnancy Tips answers:

I am a sufferer of PCOS. I also have irregular periods or miss them all together. My first line of attack was Metformin- which seemed to bring on regular periods, however did not ovuate. I was then put on clomid, but take it from day 2- 6. I am ovualating with the clomid, but am also being given the pregnyl shot the help trigger the egg to release. Your best way of knowing if you have ovulated is get blood tests done.

Donna asks…

Fertility Pills?

I’m 24 years old and i’m ready to have a baby. Me and my husband have been trying for about a year and a half now but we get nothing. I recently thought i could’ve been but the pregnancy tests say differently. We’re now wanting to try fertility pills, which ones do you guys recommend.
I know that i have to consult with my doctor first but i would just like to know what has worked best for some other people. Thanks

Pregnancy Tips answers:

According to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, about 25 percent of infertility cases are due to problems with ovulation. Therefore, ovulation-inducing fertility drugs are often chosen as a first course of treatment. Fertility drugs that induce ovulation include:

• Heparin – An anticoagulant that thins the blood to prevent clotting. Chosen for women who have a hard time carrying a pregnancy to term.
• Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) – A hormone that increases the number of eggs released each month, thereby increasing the chances of becoming pregnant. Brand names include Profasi and Pregnyl. Often chosen for women suffering from polycystic ovarian syndrome, irregular periods and anovulation.
• Human Menopausal Gonadotropins (hMG) – A combination of luteinizing hormone and follicle stimulating hormone that triggers ovulation. Often chosen for women with polycystic ovarian syndrome or endometriosis.
• Recombinant FSH – Chosen for women suffering from amenorrhea, polycystic ovarian syndrome, irregular menstruation, or anovulation.
• Urofollitropin – A purified form of follicle stimulating hormone. Chosen for women suffering from polycystic ovarian syndrome, anovulation, high levels of luteinizing hormone or low levels of FSH.

Betty asks…

What is the right sleeping position if your pregnant?

Before i can sleep any position, but last not it makes me feel uncomfortable..! I can’t sleep left and right, i feel that my stomach is getting hard and pain..! I try to sleep with my back but i cant sleep good with that..! Something wrong with this?

Pregnancy Tips answers:

I am a belly sleeper and the whole time I was pregnant (with twins) I tried every position. They tell you to sleep on your side. I found if I had enough pillows I could still sleep on my stomach for a while at least. I put pillows under my hips and my breast that way you create a gap for your stomach. I saw a pillow with a belly cut out in it after I had my kids. Look around. I also used my boppy pillow.

Ken asks…

What are effective positions to get pregnant?

me and my husband has been trying to have a baby for about 5 months but i cant get pregnant! we’ve tried many positions, and some of them that people have recommended have been very uncomfortable and not very sastisfactory.
does anyone know some great positions in sex to get pregnant and have an enjoyable time!?

Pregnancy Tips answers:

Actually being comfortable, having no worries, relaxing and just having fun increases your chances.

Anyways, from behind (because it goes in deeper) and man on top (less chance of coming back out) is the best positions.

Also, when your done try putting a pillow under your butt and laying there 30 minutes to an hour (watch a movie together and just have fun spending time together afterwards) and that helps the sperm from coming back out.

You can also try ovulation test & take them every other day after your period. And the best time to have sex is about 2 weeks after your period (but everyone is a little different)

Try having sex every other day to let the sperm build back up and be strong and so you don’t miss the 3 days out of the month where you ovulate.

You can also go to the doctor and get checked out and ask about fertility medicines. Clomid is popular and usually taken days 3-7 of your period and it helps you ovulate. It’s also not expensive (50mg is about $10 for 5 pills and $100 was $15 I think)

Hope this helps and good luck :)

Nancy asks…

How can pregnant wife avoid alcohol during the holidays without suspicion?

My wife and I just found out we’re pregnant yesterday with our 2nd child. Our families keep a close eye on my wife’s drinking habits, and whenever she doesn’t drink at a family get together, they assume she’s pregnant. It’s way too early for us to be telling people. Any tips to make it through the holidays without letting everyone find out we’re pregnant? Everyone knows my wife does not refuse alcohol when she’s not pregnant.

Pregnancy Tips answers:

Im in the same position as your wife, i drink vodka and 7 so i just remove the vodka. Oh oh it just came to me. They sell non alcoholic wine, just tell everyone you got it for a gift and bring a few bottles ( change or buy new labels if need be) and drink away. Happy holidays.

Helen asks…

What should I tell my pregnant girlfriend in my letters while I am in marines bootcamp?

What does a girlfriend or a pregnant girlfriend like to hear from a boyfriend who is at bootcamp? She gets sad and lonely without me and I just want to keep her happy. Ladies, any advice would be great.

Pregnancy Tips answers:

That’s really thoughtful of you. She is going to want to hear that you’re doing well- if you’re not, then don’t be too honest about the tough stuff you’re going through. Ask her how she’s feeling, tell her about how excited you are about her and the baby. If I were in her position, I’d love for you to bring up memories from our past together- like you could say, “Remember our first date when I…” and vividly talk about your memories and how happy she makes you feel and always gush about how much you love her and how you can’t wait to see her again.
You can also spray some of your cologne so she can smell you- that’s a huge comfort for girls to be able to smell our guy. Thanks so much for serving and I hope you get home to see her soon.

Donna asks…

How important is your sleep position during pregnancy when you are only in your first trimester?

I am only 10 weeks pregnant and I often end up sleeping on my back and right side. Does it really matter now?

Pregnancy Tips answers:

Your sleep position is actually a non-problem unless you are sleeping on a hard surface or if there is reason to believe there is a problem with the baby (particularly placenta not working right). Some doctors will recommend the special sleep position if you have multiples as well, but it’s not really an issue for some time.

Sharon asks…

When you make a whelping box for your pregnant dog, will she automatically use it?

My german shepherd is pregnant and I am going to build a whelping box for her. Will she automatically use it or do I need to do something to get her interested in it? Any tips?

Pregnancy Tips answers:

If it is going to be positioned somwhere different from where her bed usually is, you should take away her bed at about 6-7 weeks into the pregnancy and put the blankets from her bed into the whelping box to encourage her to acceot it as a comfortable, safe place in which to nest.

At about 8 1/2 weeks, remove her blankets, line it with newspaper, and give her some vet bed or a new blanket to lay on just incase she goes in to labour.

Good luck with the new puppies!

Your Questions About Ovidrel Trigger Shot

Ruth asks…

Trigger shot and Timed intercourse?

I injected two Ovidrel shots yesterday Dec. 15 at 4:15 pm. My RE told us to BD Thursday night and Saturday night. I know I will ovulate between 24-36 hours. Should we also BD early Saturday morning because I will most like ovulate around 4 am. I just thought Saturday night was too late. Thanks in advance for your opinions!

Pregnancy Tips answers:

If you do Saturday morning then the sperm count will be lower on Saturday night and Saturday morning.

Sharon asks…

Does Ovidrel make you ovulate more eggs?

I am doing clomid combined with an ovidrel trigger shot and then an IUI. I know with clomid alone there is a 10% chance of twins. My RE said once we do injectables the chance of multiples goes up. He didn’t say if Ovidrel itself causes that.

I know in a natural cycle you may mature more than one egg but usually only the largest one releases. If I use Ovidrel could that cause multiple eggs to be released from the ovaries potentially causing multiples?

Pregnancy Tips answers:

Ovidrel does not increase your chances of multiples. Yes, it will potentially cause more follicles to release the egg but if the egg is not mature, it will not fertilize.

Injectibles (not hcg like ovidrel) usually stimulate more follicle growth. More mature follicles, more eggs, more chance of pregnancy and more chance of multiples.

Good luck & baby dust!

Sandra asks…

Could I be pregnant? TTC, did Follistim & Ovidrel, please help!?

This was my 1st month doing Follistim (250 a night first 4 nights, then went up to 400 for 4 nights). I had 3 viable eggs. I did the Ovidrel trigger shot on Monday 5/31 and did my IUI Wed – it is now Sunday and I got 2 faint positives on HPT (in the evening now) – I know Ovidrel can “stay in your system” and sometimes give a false positive, but I took a preg test on Thur. and it was negative, no faint line….could I be pregnant??? I really really want to be and would love your comments on your experiences like this – so I am now 4-6 dpo.

Pregnancy Tips answers:

It’s the Ovidrel. There’s no way you could get a BFP at 4DPO. Implantation takes at least 7 days (and up to 10) and you don’t make hCG until you’ve implanted. If you triggered Monday night, you are 4DPO today.

I can’t explain your negative test Thursday. Perhaps your urine was diluted.

But if you’re asking for OPINIONS, that’s mine.

What you’re seeing right now is the trigger shot.

You’re ovbiously anxious and have lots of time on your hands, so what you could do is test every day for the next week. If the lines are DARKER when you get to 12DPO then you have a real BFP on your hands.

Good luck.

Joseph asks…

How soon after conceiving can you take a pregnancy test?

My partner and I are trying to get pregnant we have sex 11 days after my last period… Is it possible that i am pregnant and how soon can a pregnancy test be done.

Pregnancy Tips answers:

Dear Monique, Happy New Year and I truly wish you a very Happy and healthy New Year, and hopefully with a Bundle of joy. All symptom’s seems there, all said, Pregnancy tests are designed to tell if your urine or blood contains a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). This hormone is produced right after a fertilized egg attaches to the wall of a woman’s uterus. This usually happens but not always about six days after fertilization. If you’re pregnant, levels of hCG continue to rise rapidly, doubling every two to three days. You should know that waiting at least a week after a missed period may give you the most accurate result. Results may also be more accurate if you do the test first thing in the morning, when your urine is more concentrated. Follow instructions.B4 you decide when to take a pregnancy test, it helps to understand how they work. The tests detect pregnancy hormone, human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), in your urine. Some tests also detect a variation of this hormone, known as hCG (H-hCG). The regular hCG is produced only after an embryo implants in to the endometrium, while H-hCG begins to be released earlier, some time after fertilization.When pregnancy tests tell you how much hormone they detect, they usually tell you how much hCG the test requires. A woman’s level of H-hCG, though, is typically higher than hCG. The majority of pregnancy tests are not sensitive to the hormone H-hCG. If a pregnancy test does detect H-hCG, you’re more likely to get a positive result early. If a pregnancy test is not sensitive to H-hCG, and only detects regular hCG, getting an early positive result is less likely. The great majority of pregnancy tests on the market, unfortunately, are not great at detecting H-hCG. It’s important to know that these tests assume a 14-day luteal phase. (That’s the time between ovulation and when you get your period.) If your luteal phase is usually 12 days, four days before your missed period would be 9 days after ovulation. Way too early to test.If you have a luteal phase of 15 days, though, 4 days before your missed period is 12 days after ovulation. You still may not have enough hormone that early, but you’ve got a much better chance than someone with a shorter luteal phase. If you read the instructions carefully, they are promising 99% accuracy on the day of your missed period & not for early results. If U expect your period on Wednesday, Thursday would be the day of UR missed period. Something else to consider is whether you know if your period is even late. If you chart your basal body temperature and you know how long your average luteal phase is and you see that you’re two days past your longest luteal phase, then you can be pretty darn sure your period is late. If you don’t chart your cycles, though, how can you know if your period is late? What if your cycles are irregular? If you want to avoid false negatives, or “false positives”, the best time to take a pregnancy test is after your period’s late. If your cycles are irregular or you don’t chart your cycles, I wouldn’t take a test until you’ve past the longest menstrual cycle you usually have. If your cycles range from 30 to 36 days, the best time to take a test would be day 37 or later. Also, if you’ve have had an hCG trigger shot like Ovidrel, then you should not take an early pregnancy test. An early test may detect the remains of the fertility medication. If you feel as if you just can’t resist, carefully consider how you’ll feel if the results are negative. If a negative test doesn’t bother you, and you have cash to spend on pregnancy tests, go ahead. If a negative result is going to make your heart ache or if you’d rather not waste money on extra tests, though, then wait until you’re late. If your test was negative after your first or even second try at a particular treatment like Clomid, don’t be so quick to think this is a sign of future failure. Three to four trials of a given treatment are commonly needed before you know if the treatment will work for you or not. Even if this is your fourth trial, this doesn’t mean changing treatment or tweaking certain aspects of the treatment won’t help. You should take your test on you 28th day or later. At least two weeks (or maybe more) after ovulation. I hope your doctor is monitoring you closely. So DEAR I WOULD WAIT AS LONG AS POSSIBLE SENDING YOU A LOT’S OF BABY DUST TOWARDS YOU. SOME INFORMATION ARE “FY”I ONLY LIKE CLOMID & OTHERS SO YOU WILL HAVE FULL IDEA ABOUT ALL. IF U NEED MORE INFO TO INCREASE UR CHANCES OF PREGNACY I WILL BE GLAD TO HELP YOU.. Good Luck Best wishes Have a Happy Healthy successful New Year.

Mark asks…

Wife given trigger shot 9 days ago. Faint positive test this morning? Pregnant or residual from Trigger?

My wife was given a 250 mg Ovidrel trigger shot 9 days ago after finishing her first cycle with Femara. This past weekend she had been complaining that she was not feeling well. This morning she figured she would try and take a pregnancy test, I told her it would probably be too early. The test came out positive but the line was very faint. My question is… Because the shot is pure HCG, would that still register after nine days in her system, or is she pregnant?

Pregnancy Tips answers:

Because she’ll have been given the shot around 24 hours before ovulation by rights it’s far too early to test.
She needs to test again in 3-4 days time, the very best of luck to you both for a positive,

Donald asks…

Clomid success story or Clomid with Hcg Trigger success stories out there?

I am on Clomid 50mg and on cd 14 had 3 follies (one 18mm and 2 16mm) the nurse gave me the Ovidrel trigger shot and dr’s orders to bd mon, tues, and wed night. So I’m hoping for the best :) Anyone have success on clomid alone &/or with a Trigger shot?? Thank you all!
my lining wasn’t the greatest only 4.5mm, but they triggered me. So I could really use some prayers :)
thanks for the advice, but I don’t ovulate on my own so I had to have the nurse trigger me. I have pcos.

Pregnancy Tips answers:

There was a couple of studies done on clomid and trigger shots. The highest pregnancy rates can from patients who were allowed tou have a natural lh surge before receiving a trigger shot. I personally would have waited a day to get the 16mm up to 18mm (minimum size follie must be to have an egg capable of fertilizing. The worse that may have happened from waiting a day is that the 18mm (which would have grown to 20mm in a day would ovulate before a trigger but according to the study that would have been fine. Most eggs ovulated on their own around 21-23mm.
I conceived once with clomid (50 mg starting cd5).

Your Questions About Get Pregnant Fast Spells

Mandy asks…

Could I Be Pregnant/Do I Look It?

My boyfriend and I have sex about 1 – 6 times a week. I’m on the pill (Been on it for a very long time now and has always acted the same) and we don’t use condoms as often as we should (We’re Also both STD/STI clean). Well, my last “period” was a week late and I had bleeding for 4 days (my period is usually longer, and it didn’t feel like a usual period). It seems like I might have some symptoms, more frequent trips to the bathroom, frequent headaches, backache, dizzy spells here and there, and I’ve been feeling nauseous on and off, mood swings here and there (From extremely happy/energetic to crying/being sad, very sleepy, etc) , and I get cold and warm really fast, and get exhausted easily (Sometimes ges tired out from going up/down stairs), and it seems like the area around my nipple has gotten a little darker. I also I might look like it a little. . . might be too early, not really sure but here’s a picture of how my stomach looks normally:

Carol asks…

Has anyone else had any heart issues just while pregnant?

I have been having little spells that I feel like I am going to have a heart attack. Even sometimes just when I am sitting or walking at a slow pace so it’s not like when I over work myself or anything. I just brought it up to my doc and she said something about it possibly being an Arrhythmia or something. This is just kind of worrying me. I am hoping whatever is wrong does not affect my son. I am 30 weeks preggo now. Does anyone have any idea what this is?? Has anyone else experienced this heart attack like feeling. My heart beats like so fast sometimes I feel like I am going to pass out and I get like out of breath. I don’t know why!!! Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance!!! :)

Pregnancy Tips answers:

I have and I’m 30 weeks also. I mostly experience it if I’m in a rush and I don’t take my time going up stairs. Even if it’s 5 stairs and I’m not conciously taking it easy, I feel like my heart is about to explode. I’ll experience it if I do sustained walking at someone else’s pace. My husband often doesn’t realize I can’t walk at a speedwalkers pace anymore.

Sometimes I’ll experience it randomly for no particular reason. Last week I had a wisdom tooth removed and while my dentist was numbing me up I thought my heart was going to explode out of my chest and I felt like I was having some sort of panic attack. I had to ask him to stop so I could breathe for a minute. I’ve never had this problem and I’ve never had a phobia of any dentist.

I’ve chalked it up to the 50% extra blood flowing through my body and my heart needing to work harder to sustain myself and my little guy. If it worries you, please do not hesitate to contact your GP about it. Don’t put it off because I or anyone else chalks it up to anything else.

Good luck

James asks…

Can you lose a lot of weight fast from low iron?

I am having a little problem lately. I just had a baby 5 months ago. After I gave birth, my iron was low, and then back to normal. I’ve had issues with low iron my whole life on and off where I usually just took a multivitamin and it helped a little. Always had dark circles under my eyes, and recently after getting up off the couch sitting or laying down, i start walking and my vision gets blurry and almost like spots before my eyes. Anyone else experience that? I’ve always had irregular periods and lately, after giving birth, my ‘gestational diabetes’ stuck around. turns out I was pre-diabetic when i was pregnant. Both of m parents have type 2 diabetes.
In short, I was wondering if low iron can cause fast weight loss, affect your blood sugars at all, cause vision impairments/dizzy spells? Thank you in advance.
ok, obviously a lot of people think i’m trying to lose weight. i was just wondering if the fast weight loss was another symptom of low iron?
ok, so no one is reading the actual question. I weigh 110 pounds, i don’t need to lose any weight..just wondering why i’m losing it so fast and out of no where on top of getting dizzy and fatigue all the time..

Robert asks…

my boyfriends changing now that im pregnant?

We decided together to try to have a baby. because we were sooo in love and I was everything to him. He talked to me 24/7 and loved to see me. But when I got pregnant we had both lost our jobs. I had two so i only have 1 now. But He stopped talking to me as much. He will forget to say I love you when getting off the phone. He will talk to me about 25 mins a day now if that. And he says hes always busy. In the beginning I had a rough pregnancy and was fainting and hed be with his friends and he didnt seem like he cared I was lying on the floor at home alone. He saw hes busy and trying. But Im sick of im trying and im sorry. I love this man more than anything and anyone (other than my baby). Im trying to make it work because I dont want to give up easy. he has a best friend whose a girl and I didnt have a problem with her until she started being rude and saying he should break up with me and date her again and she called me a *****. I will call him after school and ask to talk to him for 5 minutes and 3 minutes later he will be like you bothered me while I was doing something and Im just like sorry. He makes me feel like **** for wanting to talk to him. He hardly answers my text and when he does talk to me at 9pm hes tired and talks to me for 10 minutes if Im lucky. He use to say he wanted to marry me and he proposed so we had ordered rings then when they came he said lets just be engaged for a while. When we are suppose to be getting married in August. He wants to wait longer. Oh and he asked to take a break once and we broke up for about 2 days. He said its cuz I talk to him to much which clearly we dont talk at all. Oh yeah we see each other ONE day a week beccause he lives far. And he says we have to much sex. Ive told him I wanted my old boyfriend baack (meaning him) The man who use to care and love me more. About a day later it went back to normal. I just want to be happy again not dissapoointed getting off the phone with him. And when he does have the option to see me more he makes up excuses. Please someone tell me what to do and how to do it! (sorry for spelling errors Im typing fast) Thanks Oh yeah now he says he kinda wanted a baby and he really only did so Id be happy. But when we were talking about before I got pregnant he seemed like he really wanted it…
we saw each other more when we decided but when we lost our jobs we worked together it went to once a week.
He says even if we break up Im not taking his kid from him. He wants to be apart of the babys life I just tell him how lonely I am because theres no one home anymore and being pregnant alot of friends are mad because I cant drink or party so they dont want to hang out. And he says well call me and Ill stop what Im doing to talk to you but I do and he gets mad… But he wants his kid.

Pregnancy Tips answers:

Okay, I’m sorry but this guy is such a jerk! He’s not treating you right at all, you need to tell him everything you said here. List to him that he needs to change all the negative things if he wants to be with you. I understand you love him and that you’ll want the baby to have a father but you shouldn’t be with someone that doesn’t care about your feelings and all in all treats you like crap. The female friend that he has that was being rude and saying to be with her and not you-that’s bs. He shouldn’t be friends with her and if he really loved you, he would have told her off for saying that crap, that’s not a real friend-that’s a girl who has feelings for him. He needs to grow up and see that he has a wonderful woman in his life and a baby on the way. He also shouldn’t want a baby just so you’d be happy, that’s not right. So talk to him about this and let him know that if he doesn’t change, you’re done with him. If he really truly loves you and is a man, he’ll change for the better and get his life straight. If he doesn’t change or make the effort, leave him, don’t even think about looking back and hesitating about it because how he is right now is horrible. You need a man in your life and not someone who will make you feel like dirt. You don’t deserve that.

Best of luck

Sandy asks…

How accurate was my ultrasound?

After talking to the midwife and having one sono tech date my pregnancy when i was almost 6 weeks, I returned two weeks later and had been given to the Dr. and had a different sono tech. They did a sono for a due date but in two weeks time the conception date had already changed by 5 days. Ive heard that 5-6 week sonos are the most accurate but Ive also heard that they can be off by 3 weeks in either direction. I could have sworn I was already pregnant because I was having the same dizzy spells I have now, nausea from smells, food aversion, head aches and sleeping alot before I was with my new boyfriend. Is it possible the sono is inaccurate and its saying I conceived on May 25th but I could have been pregnant longer?

It seemed to fast for me to get a positive test two weeks after conception, to be showing a gestational sac on a sonogram three weeks after conception and to hear a heartbeat at 5 weeks after conception… I really need advice. I really want to know :(

Pregnancy Tips answers:

You are right, 5-6 week sonos are the most accurate with variation of one week -/+.
Positive test two weeks after conception is possible.
So, don’t worry about this. Further follow up bu Ultrasound should confirm the date of expected delivery, that’s what you need.
Good Luck!

Jenny asks…

Can you plz tell me what could be causing this?

My BIL’s wife is 32/33 weeks pregnant. She has had a lot of trouble throughout her pregnancy so far. She hasn’t been able to take any type of vitamin because they seem to want to come back up. She has these spells where she would get really hot, sick, throw up, and then pass out. Her OB hasn’t been able to tell her what the cause is and I seriously think she needs to be put on bed rest because she also has these spells while she is DRIVING! She has been fainting a lot out of nowhere. Her doctor told her it was lack of protein, but I don’t know. I do not know what her diet consist of so I am not sure what the cause could be. I do know that she started out a bit careless about what she ate, drank, and so forth. Her hubby is quite picky about food and I know they ate a lot of fast food during her 1st and 2nd trimester. She actually got put in the hospital twice over her spells. Since her first time being put in the hospital, she claims to be doing everything she is supposed to be doing. Has any of this ever happened to you all?? If so, what was the cause?

Would it be possible for her to switch OBs this late in pregnancy because her’s seems to be a bit careless on the whole thing. They do not check her urine everytime she goes for her appts =/. It really ticks me off because I know my OB would be so much better for her. He isn’t the best there is, but the best in my area at least. TIA.
She is supposed to be taking iron supplements, but she claims that make her too sick.

She wants to change doctors because she doesn’t feel like she is getting the care she needs

Pregnancy Tips answers:

This happened to me but not as severe, the symptoms you are describing can mean a variety of things but for me it was because I am anemic. That means I am not getting as much iron as I need because the baby is taking it all from me. It would make me shaky, tired, feel like passing out, and sometimes I got the hot/cold flashes. I do agree that she is probably also lacking the amount of protein she needs. I would tell her to have her doctor check her blood to see if she is anemic and if she is get on an iron supplement and eat plenty of iron rich foods like baby spinach. Iron pills are very harsh on the stomach though and the only pill I would say to try is called SloFee. You can get it at Wal-Mart. I would also say that if her doctor hasn’t already checked for this then she should get a different doctor. It’s never to late to switch doctors especially when you and your babies health is at risk.

Your Questions About Clomid For Men

William asks…

What would happen if I took Clomid?

We have been TTC for 4yrs (I have a child, my husband doesnt)

He has slightly slower mobility sperm than normal & I assume that I am ok.. but who knows!

My friend has PCOS…. & has now been added to the IUI waiting list, so no longer needs her Clomid.

What would happen if I took the clomid? Would I ovulate with more than 1 egg release? (2 or 3 eggs, means 2 or 3 more chances for my husbands slow sperm to hit the target?)

I read somewhere that MEN taking clomid help with sperm production.. is this true?

I dont know if I would seriously take someone elses medication, but I am interested in it.. since I am 38 & slowly running out of time!!

Pregnancy Tips answers:

Don’t take it without medical supervision !!!!!
I was on clomid for 3 months and it was not pleasant…………… I was very very emotional ( in an unhealthy way) and was taken off it because of this. It has different reactions for different people so i would stay clear if you don’t have the professionals watching over you.

P.S………. I now have a 5 year old daughter who was conceived without the help of clomid. I was 35 when i had her and i had been trying for years too………………… Don’t lose hope, it can happen.
You could both go and get some help and advice from your GP…… Just don’t use your pals clomid.
Good Luck xxx

Paul asks…

Should I take Clomid without prescription?

I’ve been on the waiting list to see a fertilty consultant for over a year, I’m getting fed up of waiting. I have blocked fallopian tubes and don’t know yet whether I am ovulating or not. I’m so confused and so desperate I have considered buying Clomid under the counter off someone I know as men use it as a steroid. I have researched how and when to take it but will it make a difference if I have blocked tubes?

Pregnancy Tips answers:

I agree with some of the answers above. If your tubes are blocked, taking clomid will not resolve the problem. Instead it will just add to the danger of a possible ectopic pregnancy.

If your tubes are blocked, I’ve heard there is a dye test that can be performed to check for this, once the dye test is done, it has been known to unblock the tubes. I’ve heard several women have become pregnant within 2-3 months of having the dye test done. I can’t say that this will be the case for you, but would recommend that you have it checked out.

Good Luck I hope the stork comes soon!

Carol asks…

Could Nolvadex or Clomid be used as a performance enhancing drug?

I understand that these drugs are used for post cycle therapy but would using them alone, without first having done a cycle of steroids, enhance strenght, muscle gains, testosterone, or lower estrogen thus resulting in gains? I am just wondering. I don’t use steroids (I am not against them and I wonder why it is ok for women to use steroids for birth control/menopause but it is criminalized for men) but I just think the whole thing is very interesting. Any informative answers would be great!

Pregnancy Tips answers:

Actually quite an interesting question.

Despite the raise in Testosterone caused by clomid though the answer is not really, no.

“Clomid stimulates the hypothalamus to, in turn stimulant the anterior pituitary gland (aka hypophysis) to release gonadotrophic hormones. The gonadotrophic hormones are follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH – aka interstitial cell stimulating hormone (ICSH)). FSH stimulates the testes to produce more testosterone, and LH stimulates them to secrete more testosterone. This feedback mechanism is known as the hypothalamic-pituitary-testes axis (HPTA), and results in an increase of the body’s own testosterone production and blood levels rise, to, in part, compensate for the diminishing levels of exogenous steroids. This is vital to minimise post cycle muscle losses.”

So, there may be a slight increase in Testosterone production in males caused by taking this drug however the body would even it out after a few days. As you obviously already know, clomids main use in the performance enhancing stakes is when used as part of Post Cycle Therapy.

Nolvadex (Tamoxifen) works by flooding eostrogen receptors in the body with itself, effectively clogging them up before any free aromatase can bind to them. Again a raise in T levels may be noted but not for long enough to be considered performance enhancing.

Your points about women using steroids is a valid one to some degree although I doubt you’d get any argument about birth control/menopause and linking them to performance enhancement to stick! Many males now are prescribed TRT (Testosterone replacement therapy) in the same way as women get HRT. Despite all the media hyped rumours about anabolic steroids (there are many types of steroids – anyone reading this use an inhaler for asthma? Then you are using a steroid), low testosterone in a male can cause lethargy, mood swings, even cancer.

Anyhow, we live in a world were the likes of Tiger Woods can have laser corrective surgery on his eyes (despite having good eyesight in the first place) so that he can see the contours of the ground even better and yet this is not considered cheating! The governor of California is a walking advertisement for steroids and yet it is illegal to even purchase a syringe there. The mind boggles.

Take a look at ‘Bigger, Stronger, Faster’ to have your eyes opened a little more. I’d strongly suggest anybody who is against the use of steroids do so too so as to have a little factual knowledge before regurgitating media fed rubbish.

Personally I’m very much for steroid use if done with good knowledge and planning. I’m over 40 years old and have used anabolic steroids very successfully and safely for many years now. I’m also 265lbs at 7% body fat and in better shape than anyone I know outside the sports and fitness game. Of course I could put it all down to good nutrition, training and rest but it’s not. Sensible use of anabolics and other so called performance enhancing drugs have aided in making me what I am today.

Helen asks…

Where would my hubby get a sperm analysis? Do men usually go to the same fertility specialist that I’m seeing?

My hubby and I are ttc and I’ve been seeing a fertility specialist who put me on clomid. It’s been a few months and we’re still not getting pregnant so my hubby and I are wondering if he should get a sperm analysis. I was going to call my fertility specialist that I see tomorrow to make an appt for him, but then I started wondering do most fertility specialists do this or would he go to a different doctor?

Pregnancy Tips answers:

When my husband had to have his done, my specialists is the one who oredered the sperm analysis.
All we had to do was go to the lab down stairs to turn it in, and that is how it got tested. He didnt have to go to another doctor or anything!
Good luck, and i hope this helps!

Susan asks…

Clomid Question pls – how man cycles . . .?

Hiya lovely ladies!
Just wondering, how mny cycles of Clomid it took you to conceive?
Im on 50mg, it has worked every mth -very well, i even over ovulated so it was reduced (but still worked!)
We have no known fertility issues – took Cloimid to shorten cycles from 42days.
Im on Cycle 5 and due AF tomo, which will no doubt come as i took an early detection Clear Bue digital Sunday and it was BFN.
if im honest, i kinda thought it might have been my mth, used pre-seed for first time, had HSG (all okay) but thought its still a nice little clear out and took an extra Clomid (took 4 instead of 3 tablets, 5 is too many!)
Just wondered what cycle you fell on Clomid if you did?
Thanks ladies!
Im gettting fed up now :-(
Been TTC for 15mths (hubby missed a small few when working away!) and if i come on Tomo, will take 6th ccle of Clomid
Inspire me pls! xxx

Pregnancy Tips answers:

I got bfn’s until the day of my missed period!!! You may get a bfp tomorrow hon!! Test tomorrow!

I got preg on my 11th cycle of clomid.

Things i did differently was exercise, eat healthily, take vitamins, made sure hubby didnt drink excessively or smoke cos he smokes occassionally when drinking and also i did a handstand when we were away after sex, lol.

FINGERS CROSSED TOMORROW!! Exciting!

Linda asks…

2 positive ovulation tests. 1 week apart. Has this happened to anyone else?

I ovulated on Aug 6th (during my high fertile week, est ovulation date Aug 9th according to calendar). I then received another positive ovulation test on Aug 13th. Was due to get my period on Aug 23rd but missed period. I took 2 tests, 1 on Aug 22 (1 day before missed period in morning) and 2nd on day of missed period mid day. Both were negative. I don’t know what to think? If I did ovulate on the 13th that would mean I tested on days 9 & 10 dpo.

They would have been positive if I were pregnant right? Has anyone had this happen before with a positive test?

Pregnancy Tips answers:

Okay. You can look on peeonastick.com.. Sometimes opks can pick up the pregnancy hormone and you will get a positive. I hope that is the case. Good luck

Thomas asks…

Who is the dad is the question?

My gf last period was on may 4th. I been having sex with her in that whole month with the pull out method. She had sex with her ex on may 17th. He mentioned he thinks he ejaculated a bit in her ( i assume he is in shocked and in panic cus he mentioned it 3 months after it happened or else i think he should of said so at the moment it happened) her due date is february 8th. I looked into ovulation calendars, i saw all woman are different, i saw others sources and are not accurate. What are my chances

Pregnancy Tips answers:

So, here is the information we have: We do not know when she ovulated. She was engaging in sexual intercourse with both of you around her time of conception. You were using the pull-out method (which is accepted as a very unreliable form of contraception) and he ‘thinks’ he ejaculated ‘a bit’ in her.
If you are certain that you and this one other man are the only people she was having intercourse with at that time, I am inclined to say that you have a 50/50 chance of being the biological father.

Jenny asks…

TTC…what are your thoughts on having a baby at the end of December?

So I was looking at the ovulation calendar and it said that if I was to get pregnant this month then my due date would be December 22 (period is today.) I was hoping to have gotten pregnant last month but it just did not happen for us :( So, since I am ttc I was just wondering what other peoples thoughts were about having a baby so close to Christmas. Would you continue to try this month or would you chose to skip a month? Thanks, Just wondering is all!!!

Pregnancy Tips answers:

If you want a baby it won’t matter when the baby is due. At least that’s how I feel

Mary asks…

Pregnancy calendar … is it accurate?

For some reason, I thought it would be cool to have my next kid’s birthday to be 7/7/07.

I tried the pregnancy calculator and it said that we had to conceive on October 14,2006 to have the birthdate I mentioned.

Unfortunately, I forcasted that my wife will have her peak ovulation day on October 8 which is 6 days off of the target conception date.

Which leads me to the original question .. for those of you who did this pregnancy calendar (which is about 266 days i think of birth after conception) is it pin point accurate? Or could I have a possible margin of error of +6 more days that I need. Please note that my wife will deliver though caesarian method so I could have the birthdate more or less around the target date I want.

I guess the folow up question is could you tell me if you gave actual birth after projected due date?Or before.

Thank you (p.s. I hope you don’t find me selfish with this exact date thing … when I know others may even have a hard time conceiving)

Pregnancy Tips answers:

I think its +7or-7 days after due date…there can be instances when a pregnancyis longer than 40 weeks!

Susan asks…

how many weeks am I ??

ok so my last period was 2nd of december!!!
My nurse who gave me my BFP on wednesday said i am about 8 weeks and due on the 8th september!

But when i looked at the calendar and counted back 40 weeks from my due date it means nurse is counting my period date as the date i concieved and i no thats not possible as i didnt have sex the day i started my period or while on my period over the next week!!!

my ovulation calendar says i should have had my fertile date on the 16th so that would only make me 6 weeks

Totaly confused!!!!

Pregnancy Tips answers:

They always add that extra 2 wks on there. It confused me my 1st go around too. They do that to make it an even 40 wk pregnancy. A norm pregnancy is actually around 38 weeks, if they do not add the other 2 weeks. Not sure exactly why they do that. I will Google it tho.

EDIT:
Okay, try this site…It goes more intodetail on Wk1 and Wk2 of pregnancy

Laura asks…

Implantation cramps? please help?

I had intercourse about 5 or 6 days ago, my ovulation calendar predicted that was my ovulation date. This morning I had severe cramps and couldn’t get out of bed. It lasted about 20 mins. My period isn’t due for about 10 more days. I have a 28 day cycle. I’m wondering if it could be implantation cramps w/o the bleeding?
