Yes, it can be quite frustrating when ovulation cannot be induced even with medical help. However you’re Doctor knows best. A reassessment of the problem should be done. Rule out factors like PCOS wherein the thickened ovary can cause problems with ovulation. Increasing the doses of gonadotropin injections and using the HCG trigger will help. Hope this helps.

hello Doc,
thank you so much for the advice. it really is a morale boost for me.
this time my doc changed the brand of hmg and increased the dose to 225IU for 5 more days. today in TVS, I got 2 follicles of 16-17mm and many smaller follies as well of about 10-11 mm. now my IUI is due a day after.
how much are chances of getting pregnant with IUI?
I hope we can get a positive news soon.
thank you
