Comments :

2. Teratozoospermia– is a condition characterized by the presence of sperm with abnormal morphology that affects fertility in males.


Ovulation

It is important to have a basic understanding of normal ovulation.

Normally, a woman’s ovaries produce one egg every 24 to 35 days.

Ovulation usually occurs about 12 to 14 days before the next menstrual period

A woman’s best chances for becoming pregnant occurs around the day of ovulation and one to two days before ovulation.

This would be approximately 12 to 14 days after the first day of a 28 day menstrual cycle.


The Call

Im not ovulating.

😦


24th

Before heading to work, went to KKIVF Centre in the morning.

I had my blood drawn out from my fat veins.YES, they have difficulty trying to find the right veins…LOL

The test took me less than 30minutes.

Total charges $37 for Progesterone test.

I’ve to call KKIVF Centre 2 working days later for my results. They will then instruct me throught the phone for the next treatment.

If the Serum Progesterone level is adequate, it means that I have ovulated. Either I will be asked to maintain the same dose of Clomiphene and not required to have any more blood test.

However, if the  Serum Progesterone level is low, it means that I have not ovulated with my last dose of Clomiphene. I will be adviced to increase to 2 tablets and come again on my 24th day of my mentrual cycle to have a blood test again.

Yesterday was spotting, and today Im having my menses….weird right!

😦


23rd

I had spotting.

Abdominal cramp….

Too early for my menses???

I’m going KKH on Saturday for my blood test, Serum Progesterone for the 24th day of my menstrual cycle.

The test is to measure the level of serum progesterone whether Im ovulating.

Wish me LUCK!!
