So I actually have several questions. I am 37, and have tried and failed at 4 IUI's. I was on clomid 100mg and was only having about 2-3 follicles each cycle. My FSH is 8.6, but my Gynecologist doesn't know what an AMH test is. Could my failed IUI's possibly be the clomid thinning out my uterus? I have been on it for about 8 months.
Also, my friend recently had a successful mini IVF, first try. She had poor egg reserve, AMH was .28, and male factor. They put her on 200mg of Clomid for 7 days, did the egg retrieval and then froze the embryos for one month. They put her on estrogen and something else to build up her uterus lining, and then did the transfer after one month. They had 4 healthy embryos, and transferred two. One stuck. Was wondering if that is a protocol you use? That package deal was about $5000 (included bloodwork, ultrasounds, egg retrieval, hatching, sperm washing/spinning, ICSI, one month of freezing embryos, embryo transfer, and monitoring). Only thing it didn't include was genetic testing, clomid costs and a
$250 anesthesia charge. Do you have a package rate for this type of mini IVF?

I cannot assess why any particular treatment does not work here. In general, success rates with Clomid are relatively low. We would need to evaluate your situation to assess if Clomid was appropriate treatment for you and what else needs to be done for you.

We do offer mini-IVF packages that are similarly priced to the one you mentioned. However, we feel that mini-IVF is most helpful for women that absolutely need IVF (like blocked tubes), bot do not respond well to stimulation drugs. Success rates with mini-IVF are much lower than conventional IVF. Your FSH level does not suggest you will have a problem responding to stimulation. AMH is just one mroe test to estimate your response. It does not predict pregnancy rates with nature or IUI.

Please call 818-788-7288 if you would like to arrange a consultation where we can discuss your case in more detail to see what is your next best step.
