Condition Diagnosed :
Infertility with a history of endometriosis
Intrauterine Insemination – IUI
Detailed Description :
Infertility is a condition in which you are unable to conceive after a year of trying. Infertility in females can be caused by endometriosis, uterine fibroids, or thyroid problems. Men who have difficulty impregnating their female partners may have a low sperm count or testosterone levels. As you become older, your chances of being infertile increase.
Infertility doesn’t always imply that you will never be able to have a baby. Half of all couples seeking treatment can conceive a child, either on their own or with medical assistance.
Some couples require additional assistance in conceiving. To improve the chances of pregnancy, a woman may take medications to induce ovulation before attempting one of these procedures, such as IUI, IVF, or ICSI.
An Overview of the Case :
A 34-year-old woman came to Nisha IVF, one of the famous IVF centre of Ahmedabad, after experiencing infertility for five years. She had endometriosis and low progesterone in the past. Her husband’s sperm motility had been a problem in the past. She had never been pregnant before and was worried.
Multiple medicated cycles with Clomid and letrozole and two earlier IUI cycles were part of her past reproductive treatment. Her endometriosis had been treated with two laparoscopies. Before moving to Ahmedabad, she underwent reproductive treatment in another state.
For her third IUI cycle, she came to the Nisha IVF Clinic. Dr Himali Maniar and Dr Nisarg Patel, two of the best IVF specialists in Ahmedabad, attended her three times throughout her IUI round. In preparation for the IUI, the doctor prescribed her 150mg of Clomid to boost follicle growth.
The first treatment was performed on cycle day 6 to promote follicle growth and prevent side effects of Clomid. The cycle’s second treatment was performed on the morning of the IUI procedure. This treatment aided in the onset of ovulation. Six days after the IUI, the third treatment of the cycle was administered to promote implantation, lessen uterine contractions, reduce stress, and maintain healthy progesterone levels.
A week later, the patient obtained a positive pregnancy test. Between her tests, her HCG levels increased by a reasonable amount. The pregnancy had been verified by ultrasound, and mom and baby were doing well.
Patient’s Feedback :
This is what the patient said, ” I am thankful to Dr. Himali and Dr. Nisarg because of their knowledge and expertise I achieved pregnancy with the help of IUI. Both doctors are courteous and helpful. Their staff is very supportive and kind. So, I recommend Nisha IVF Centre in Ahmedabad for infertility problems.
