Successful IUI, PCOS, GDM

You have to have faith on yourselves.

This couple came to us in early 2017. The woman was having PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome).

After reviewing all reports we advised Ovulation Induction (OI) with different medicines and injections. However all failed to give pregnancy.

We are thankful to this couple as they bore with us when we had problems with TVS monitoring (machine disturbance, change of place and emergency problem from our part).

Finally they decided for 2 cycles of IUI, failing which they would go for IVF.

IUI 1st cycle done at December 2017 but it failed. They did not give up. They opted for 2nd cycle IUI in January 2018 and it becomes positive.

Like before, they kept trust on us throughout the pregnancy. The woman developed Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM) which was controlled with medicine and dietary restrictions. GDM was diagnosed according to DIPSI Guidelines using 75 gram glucose tolerance test. Retinal check up, kidney function test, HbA1c testing, Regular monitoring of blood sugar, Echocardiography of the baby and Growth scan were all done, apart from routinely advised first trimester screening and Anomaly Scan..After discussion with them, decision for delivery was taken. Steroid injection was given for lung maturity of the baby. 

Delivery was done at 38 weeks at NICU Set up. Healthy baby cried at birth, weighing 2.74 Kg and did not require NICU Admission.

The family is ready to welcome their new member with great pride.
