Can I have sex as a low responder in ovulation induction?

By Dr. María Arqué.
Last Update: 06/25/2020

In the event that ovarian stimulation has been performed to perform an in vitro fertilization treatment and that, due to the low ovarian response, the treatment has been canceled, there is the possibility of converting it back into artificial insemination or scheduled reports, provided the following requirements are met:

  1. Sufficient semen quality for the possibility of pregnancy
  2. Having one fallopian tube
  3. monofollicular ovarian response or a maximum of 2 follicles: if there are more than two follicles that have grown (> 15 mm) and have unprotected sexual intercourse, there is a risk that all these oocytes will be fertilized and that there will be multiple gestation. For this reason, if more than two follicles have grown, it is recommended to avoid unprotected sexual intercourse.
