If you have not had any other procedures done after your last HSG, and if the results are not older than three years, you do not need to redo the procedure. Normally hysteroscopy is the more preferred procedure to evaluate the endometrium.
This method requires a highly trained staff and latest technology in equipment. The equipment and materials used in an IVF lab are all imported and costly. Also most of the materials used are disposable and in single use format. In the United States the cost of one cycle is $6,500 excluding the cost of the drugs used to stimulate the ovaries.

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) or more commonly known as Artificial Insemination is the term used when semen is washed to increase the concentration of progressive motile sperm and injected into the uterus on ovulation day. This is done to increase the couple’s chances of getting pregnant.
Infertility is the term used when a couple fails to conceive after 1 year of regular intercourse. Infertility is seen among 10-15% of the couples throughout the world.
A couple can try as many times as they wish provided they can handle the costs.
The duration of the procedure depends on the number of follicles that need to be aspirated. Normally it takes about 5-10 minutes. You should assume that the preparations, procedure and recovery time will take roughly 2 hours total.
In addition to poor quality eggs or blocked tubes, endometriosis is also attributed to causing infertility in females. Poor sperm quality or count is usually the cause of male fertility.
We usually recommend a three month break after an IVF attempt. In the donor egg program if there are suitable donors available, a recipient can try every month. A natural IVF cycle can also be done every month.
The procedure is not painful but can cause mild discomfort. At our clinic, we use mild anesthesia administered through an IV line which relieves the discomfort. A patient rarely will need a heavy dose of anesthetic drugs.
There are no limits to the number of attempts of Artificial Insemination. It is recommended however, that patients consider more advanced methods of ART after 2-3 failed attempts.
Women are evaluated for infertility on the second or third day of menstruation and semen analysis is done after 3-5 days of sexual abstinence. During this period, various tests like hormone levels, pelvic exam, ultrasonography, semen analysis and for infectious diseases can be done. If required, inside of the uterus is best examined after menstruation. Doctors can decide the best form of treatment after the consulting the results of these tests.
Microinjection or IVF process; Fertilization is detected after 16-20 hours (1st day). · After 48 hours (day 2), 3-4 cell embryos are observed. After 72 hours (day 3), embryos containing 6 to 8 or more cells are observed and intercellular fusion begins. In the morning of the 4th day, the number of cells cannot be clearly counted, and embryos that reach the morula period are formed. The embryo on the 5th or 6th day is called a blastocyst and the number of cells is more than 60. Embryos that meet these criteria in the IVF laboratory are considered as normally developing embryos.
Embryo quality is the most important factor affecting success in IVF treatment. Although there are many studies investigating the relationship between stress and reproduction, it has not been proven that stress directly affects reproduction. Notifying the couples that their embryos are of good quality may have a stress-reducing and relaxing effect in this regard. However, while choosing the IVF center to be treated, it may be more appropriate to turn to centers that also provide psychological support. Our site does a detailed research on IVF centers and we aim to provide you with extensive information on this subject when our research is completed.
