Thread: Not getting ovulated naturally

  1. #1

    Default Not getting ovulated naturally

    Hello,

    we've been trying since 4 months and consulted a gynecologist and found that my wife is not ovulating and prescribe Clomiphene and Metformin. Her periods are regular and my wife starting taking those pills from day 9. Yesterday when we went to doctor for Ultrasound scan, she said that she can see the very small eggs being developed and not sure and asked us to wait for 2-3 days and she told that we came late as normally Clomiphene/Metformin has to be started from day 3.

    My concern is that



    1) Will not getting ovulated is a problem?
    2) Will all women ovulate naturally even without using these pills.
    3) How many months do we need to undergo to get pregnant.

    Please help me out in answering my questions.

    it's not abnormal to not ovulate on clomiphene - it happens that some people will not ovulate naturally, and even with clomiphene added in there. given that the pills were not taken until day 9, IF your wife is going to ovulate this cycle, it WILL be late - the norm for taking clomid/clomiphene is days 2-6, 3-7 or 5-9. i have never heard of someone taking them from day 9 before.

    if your wife doesn't ovulate, she will not be able to conceive. she will need to be ovulating to fall pregnant. i would suggest you follow up as the doctor has recommended. it can take a couple 12 months or more to fall pregnant when ovulating every cycle - when not ovulating, it can take significantly longer.

    we went late to the doctor ie., on day 9. she only told that we're late where in actually clomid/clomiphene is to be taken from day 3.

    What might be the cause of not getting ovulated. Is it really a problem?

    there are many problems that can lead to lack of ovulation - and if the doctor is suggesting you try clomid then i would assume that they have agreed your wife is having anovulatory cycles. any cycle in which your wife doesn't ovulate is a cycle in which you cannot conceive - so from that perspective, yes, it's a big problem.

    Oh you're making me tensed . so they can be cured right?? like treatment with clomid/metformin in the next cycle so that my wife can ovulate.

    for some people, clomid and metformin will help, but for others (like me) they don't work, and you need to move to other forms of treatment

    given that your wife has been put on metformin, i would assume that your wife has polycystic ovaries - and for a lot of people with PCOS, it can be hard to conceive.

    trust in your doctor to guide you. there is no guarantee any of it will work - but try everything that they suggest to optimise your chances of having a baby

    When read somewhere about PCOS, it has been mentioned that symptoms of PCOS include
    ~ irregular or non-existent periods

    which is not in case of my wife. She has regular periods. and also from the reports I didn't see any of these words. If i remember, doctor wrote one word called 'No DF'. please tell me what exactly does this mean. Do this mean that she is not ovulating properly?

    unfortunately, i've not come across "no DF" so can't answer that one

    PCOS often has irregular or non=existent periods - but not always. it would depend on the severity of the problem. if i were you, i'd go back to your doctor and ask why your wife has been prescribed the meds she is on - there has to be a reason - i doubt they'd put her on metformin without a reason. it's very hard for us to comment about specifics, only in general - and harder still without your partners medical history

    I am no expert like these ladies are.....but i guess there would have to be a good and major reason as to why the DR has put her on those meds so it may help settle you're mind if you ask

    Yesterday, we went to doctor for ultrasound scan and she told that tablets have stimulated and made to develop follicles. It was the 14th day of her cycle and my doubt is when will the ovulation takes place? Will the ovulation depends for women to women. I mean may be it can happen on 16th or 17th day.

    it could be any time now - i would suggest you have sex every second day for the next 10 days or more (or until your wife is sure she has ovulated) - and hope for the best

    this baby making game is far from an exact science!

    Briggy,

    When can ovulation happen ( I'm just curious)?

    we're making love every day, so far I'm in thinking that ovulation can happen anytime so I dont want to miss that chance. Are there chances if we make love yesterday and ovulation happens today or tomorrow, will the sperms sustain inside to meet the egg.

    sperm can last for up to five days in the reproductive tract of your wife, so yes, if you've had sex today, and she ovulates tomorrow, you're on track

    it is usually suggested to ejaculate every second day to give a chance for a decent supply to build up again

    Last day (on 17th day of menstrual cycle) i went to the doc and with ultra sound scan, she found out that my wife's follicles are not growing rapidly though she found follicles on day 15th. She suggested to do some tests like FSH etc on day 3 of her next cycle.

    we want to become parents but don't know I'm worried now, of what is happening here.
    Her TSH is around 1.6.

    please guide me

    you'll need to take guidance from your specialist - they will track your wifes cycle and help you with what needs to be done to help you to become parents. i'm not a doctor - just another poor sap that has trouble getting pregnant - so what i know i've gained from my own experiences.

    put your trust in your doctor - do everything they ask in terms of testing - and believe that they'll give you the information you need to fall pregnant

    Yes, I've trust in my doc.

    Quick question: Will my wife be able to ovulate naturally even if she wont be on medications. I trust my doc and her tests and follow her if tests reveal some problem in her hormones.

    some women (myself included) don't ovulate naturally - or if they do, it's very irregular. you might need some medication to help

    Just curious in asking so many questions, please try to understand me unless otherwise.

    I've checked my wife's medical history sheet and 6 times in past 1 year, doc has written that there is "no dominant follicle".

    1) Why there is no follicle present for the past few months. Does that mean that she is having any hormone problems.
    2) Isn't she not ovulating properly (though she is getting periods regularly and acne gets worse during the last few days before next menstrual cycle begins)

    What is the treatment to overcome these problems and get pregnant.

    Note: doc has written to test FSH,LH levels on day 3 of next menstrual cycle.
