hi Anugraha,
siphene help by inducing ovulation,
in first cycle there is around 30% chance of getting pregnancy.
you can take up to 6 cycles of siphene,
follicle will grow for adequate size by 13th to 14th day and at that time you can visualize it,
as first time you got ovulation but not conceived, may be because of that your doctor suspected some problem within your fallopian tubes and suggested patency test,
you can go for it to rule out that problem.
take care.

Thanks for writing to us.
As you are having PCOS, which is a hormonal imbalance leading to anovulation.
Siphene tablet helps in inducing the growth of the follicles.But, It is preferrable to start it on Day 2/3 of the period,though it can be started upto day 5.
As, you are having PCOS, ovulation inducing medicines have been prescibed to you. Generally these are to be taken for about 3-6 cycles with doctor's advise.
Along with this, You need to get other investigations done, including husband's semen analysis, to find out any other additional cause for infertility.
Hope to have cleared your doubts.
Take care.
