Oh my, that was quite detailed. I’m afraid I don’t have accurate answers for you. We started with IVF yrs ago. Passed 4 rounds with OE and DE. Last unsuccessful one in June resulted in the early mc. Our final shot with donor egg brought success. I’m currently prego with a LO. Waiting for the 7wks scan. So from personal experience, he initial step in the IVF process is to undertake an advanced ultrasound scan. This scan is vital. Dr explained it is a key part in deciding on the treatment protocol. The imaging of the ovaries allows them to assess ovarian reserve by counting the small growing follicles. In addition they measure blood flow in the ovaries which also checks fertility status. Well, I’m not sure IUI is going to be the your another step. You’ve had them just enough. So probably it’s time to opt for IVF. Not insisting though…

Do you suggest any lab works I need check apart from above information before IVF or we need to improve in any other areas ?
We are so concerned because when ever we are visiting doctor she says the health conditions of both are good but we are ending up with no success in every step.
