Prometrium and hcg question
1 Replies
natyskef - August 14

Hi, how are you?
I had my second iui on Saturday 08/05/06. I had no cervical mucus. My husband's sperm count was 109 million with 89 % motility if I am not mistaken. My progesterone was too low so my doctor put me on prometrium 2 capsules of 200 mg 4 times a day. I just sleep all they long. Also, this was a natural cycle, I had no medication besides the hcg shot (10000 iu). I have two questions.
Q1: Do you think the prometrium will help? What I mean is that if it will really increase my prog level?
Q2: Does the HCG shot works always? It makes you ovulate always?
Do you think this will be a succesful cycle?
Thanks for your time, Natalia

There are data published indacating that IUI, without first stimulating ovaries with an FSH produst does not produce better pregnancy rates than no treatment, at all. When we tried triggering ovulation with hCG in Clomid and unstimulated cycles, we did not improve pregnancy rates. Oral progesterone absorbtion is very unpredictable. I do not use oral progesterone prepeartions. You may be getting significan absorbton. One of the things high progesterone does is cause fatigue abd lethargy.
Good luck.
