Dear Dr. Smith,

How many time can you do IVF and/or IUI?

When do you call it quits?

I am asking this question, mainly from a point
of long term safety for the woman from the exposure of
these drug.

Thank you.

There is no evidence to suggest that FSH/LH medications cause problems. You do not use up your eggs faster by using them and you do not put yourself at risk by using them. After all, these are the same homones that circulate in your body every month - just more of them.

As to when do you call it quits - 3 unsucessful IUI's, then move on to IVF. After 3 unsucessful IVF's, quit or move on to donor egg/sperm or both.

Your question is more of a clinical nature. I will forward your question to Dr. Jane Miller, the RE I work with. She will answer your question.
