Sick during IVF transfer

KKrebs - February 18

Hello,

What has your experience been with patients who have been sick during the IVF transfer (before/during/after). Of all weeks, I ended up with bronchitis and was being treated with zithromax. Do you have any empirical data that suggests it affects the outcome of achieving pregnancy? I was coughing quite a bit.
Secondarily, the antibiotic caused great intestinal woes and found myself frequenting the bathroom for the three days of transfer and forward. Would this affect any outcome as well?

Thank you for your generosity in answering our questions!

I am sorry, but I have no data or experience to help you. You are probably OK. I do not think your coughing or antibiotic issues have caused a problem.
Good luck.

am doing iui using tamoxifen cd3-7 and gonal-f 7-10. after 3days on injectable i had very small follicles and dosage increased. my question is how many days does it take for follicles to mature? is there a thing like follicles maturing to fast while on injectables like gonal-f or follistim?

I have no experience using tamoxifen as pasrt of an ovulation iduction protocol. Tamoxifen is a drug like Clomid, with a very similar mechanism of action. I assume it will behave much the same way. You should reach maximum follicle size about 5 to 7 days after your last tamoxifen pill.
Good luck.
