    just had an injection of chorionic gonadotropin
    An_261304 posted:
    Hello, I am 35 years old and my husband and I have been trying to conceive for over 1.5 years now. I am currently living in India and last week decided to start investigating this issue....

    Here's a little history.
    - was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian disease 2 yrs ago in Canada.
    -do not have any children.
    -have had miscarriages in past
    -currently married to a very healthy 25 year old male
    -blood type O with - RH factor

    This week I had a transvaginal ultrasound and it was determined that there is very minimal PCOD and I have a very healthy egg. the doctor then ran tests on my husband and we found out his sperm quality and count was not optimal. The doctor prescribed a few supplements for my husband and said she wants to inject me with the medicine to induce ovulation because the egg was ideal. She gave me 10000iu and said she feels confident we will conceive this cycle.

    I have been reading up on this medicine (chorionic gonadotropin) and wonder if anyone else has received this treatment and if so if they were successful and have become pregnant.

    I have also read about the side effects. Has anyone conceived multiples from one injection of this medicine?

    Thank you for sharing your advice and experiences with me.
    have a wonderful day.

    Hi An. I hope you are doing well and this injection helped you. How are you? I would love to hear from you as I am in a bit of a similar situation. I am 34 years old, we are trying to conceive since a bit more than an year and my partner is a healthy 29 young guy with apparently not optimum sperm counts.
    We did not go yet to the hospital but we do have an appointment at the end of April. I would like to talk with somebody. Warm greetings! m.

    Hi M,

    A lot has happened since I posted the first time. A few days after that injection my doctor prescribed progesterone for 2 weeks. I took it but unfortunately we did not conceive that cycle. The doctor then said we need to investigate my husband's sperm quality and also my fallopian tubes. i ended up having laproscopic surgery to remove a blockage in my right fallopian tube, clear a small blockage in the left, and they also removed the ovarian cysts that were present from the pcos. They told us not to try this month but that i should be strong enough and my body ready next month. I have an appointment to go back in next week. In the end the doctor was very confident that this blockage was the reason we were not able to conceive and that we will be successful in the near future. I hope so...we would absolutely love a family. that's my update. please feel free to send me a note if you have any questions after your appointment. Thank you for is nice to connect with someone who is experiencing a similar situation. I wish you and your husband all the very best. S
