Describe the protocols John Isaacs used in your cycles at University of Mississippi and their degree of success.
We had already been trying on our own for a few years. We went to doctor Isaac and found out there was a low sperm count. So he decided IUI would be best for us. So I was put on letrozole low dose and for cycle day 3-7 went back on cycle day 12 to do vaginal ultrasound and there was one egg on the left ovary i think a size 11 and one on right side leading a size 10. He up my dosage of letrozole and we came back a week later and the egg was a 18 we took trigger shot home and it was administered around 6am the next morning and that following day we were in for IUI at 8:30am with 12,000,000 sperm. Was told to wait 2 weeks take a test and we did as told it was negative. So we started the cycle over again this time using letrozole 7.5mg 3-7 day of cycle. We went in on day 12 and egg on left side was a 11 so he changed meds to clomid 100mg and we were told to come back in a week. Ultrasound was done egg was a 18 were took trigger shot home and got it that next morning. Following day IUI was done with 13,000,000 sperm. Two week wait test was negative. We wait a few months went back this year in Feb he started me on clomid 150mg cycle day 3-5 went in on a Monday egg was a 13 he told us to trigger that Saturday night and we went in for IUI that Monday morning with 400,000 sperm. Ended up negative. We have been back in for another consultant and we are either going to do 3 more rounds of IUI or IVF

I think when a person doesn't have any kids at all If they wanted two embryos transferred, they should do it. I do understand the risk.
