Dear Evie, thank you for your quiery which I am more than happy to answer. According to the details you have given me, you are eligible for IUI in our centre regarding your age and special features. On the other hand I have to underline some facts and bring to your attention further choices you can make. You are 44 years and this is interpreted in a 2-3% of getting pregnant on your own even with IUI. This is because , even if you have a regular ovulation (which we dont know, as menstruation is not a reliable marker), the quality of the egg produced every month is highly possible to hold an impaired function. Therefore there is great chance of difficult fertilisation, leading to low pregnancy rates or evenmore to early pregnancy lost if a pregnancy at last occurs. We have a way to overcome these drawbacks, using egg donation treatment which I recon is the most appropriate method for your needs. In constrast, if you insist on using your own eggs then ICSI on repeated natural cycles can increase your chances for achieving a viable pregnancy. During this procedure, using mild (modified natural cycle), or no stimulation at all (natural cycle), we follow up follicle growth with ultrasound examinations. Then just before ovulation occurs, we aspire the egg, which then we attempt to fertilize in laboratory with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). If a blastocyst occurs, then we either proceed to embryo transfer or else to cryopreservation and attempt another cycle, in order througth this repeated procedure to assemply 2-3 blastocysts and then proceed to embryo transfer. This method increases our chances for pregnancy but it is time consuming, without secure results and it does not reduce the risk of early pregnancy lost due to possible impaired egg-embryo function. On the other hand, egg donation is not time consuming and can provide us with 50% pregnancy rates leading to increased life birth rates. So, if using a donated egg is not a most determining factor for your decision, then I believe that egg donation is the most appropriate choice to make. Once more, thank you for your question. We are at your disposal for any further details.
