Thanks for writing to us.

If the follicles do not rupture even after giving inj. HCG then it is suggestive of adverse effects of endometriosis on your ovary. Still there is no need to be disheartened. All the infertility treatments have a success rate of around 17-20% per cycle in spite of best efforts.

So, my advise would be that you should at least give a six months continuous trial to the fertility medicines strictly according to your gynaecologist. If still there is no success, then you can think of planning for IVF.

Right now with only two normal cycles it is too early to think that medicines are not helping you. After such a long amenorrhoea it is normal to have few anovulatory cycles.

I hope you have found my answer and recommendations to be both adequate and helpful. Should you have additional questions I am available to address them.
