Dr. Allison Rodgers is board certified in both Obstetrics and Gynecology and Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, and has been practicing medicine since 2004. She currently practices at the Fertility Centers of Illinois. Dr. Rodgers’ personal experiences with both secondary infertility and pregnancy loss have given her a unique insight into reproductive medicine in order to help you BEAT INFERTILITY.
After Dr. Rodgers answers listener questions, she and Heather explore everything you need to know about timed intercourse:
- What is timed intercourse, and what is the average success rate?
- What infertility diagnoses are best initially treated with timed intercourse?
- Timed intercourse, when you’re seeing a reproductive endocrinologist, is typically medicated. What are the different medication options, and when is one better than the other?
- Is timed intercourse often monitored, or do couples typically track ovulation on their own?
- What does the intercourse schedule of a timed intercourse cycle typically look like?
- Do timed intercourse cycles ever get cancelled? If so, why?
- Are progesterone suppositories typically prescribed during timed intercourse cycles?
- Are there any special “rules” such as limited exercise that women should follow during the two week wait?
- Is there anything else you’d like to add that we haven’t already discussed?
