PCOD is definitely a vary tricky problem but a patient approach definitely bears fruit to the patient.
The most important treatment apart from ovulation induction medicine like FERTOMID is,shedding your weight and being in your normal BMI range and other treatment is to take care of your insulin resistance by taking regular METFORMIN under the guidance of your doctor.
Your doctor is giving you the right treatment.Just follow the treatment and trust your doctor.
You shall definitely get pregnant.
Best of luck

As you have not made follicle with Fertomid 100mg, you can either increase it's dose in consultation with your doctor OR go for inj Menopur again OR go for laparoscopic ovarian drilling for ovulation induction. Your treating doctor will decide which one is best for you.
Wish you good health.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic

On 13th day (after taking Fertomid 100mg) follicle size of only 7-8 mm suggests severity of PCO and poor growth of follicles. At this stage you should get patency of your tubes evaluated by HSG or laparohysteroscopy. At laparohysteroscopy other contributing factors can be treated( ovarian drilling for PCO if LH and testosterone are high) at the same time. To induce ovulation you will need gonadotropin injections. IUI ( Intrauterine insemination ) will be better option rather than trying naturally. There are high chances of miscarriages in PCOD due hormonal imbalance which needs to be taken care of before conceiving. There are other factors also which may lead to miscarriages.

Take care

Thanks for your query.

I read your query and understand your concerns.

Following is my reply:

Clomid helps in developing follicles. 8 mm follicle is small. it needs to reach 18mm.

Menopur is an HMG which might again be needed. Please ask your infertility specialist to provide you HMG if needed.

You need regular follicular growth scans. See an infertility specialist for the same

I hope I answered your query. I will be available for any follow up queries you have.
