Though in the past it was considered significant, retroverted position of uterus is not much of a problem. Do not worry about that.
I presume you have Polycystic ovarian disease, which is a derangement of hormonal/ovarian function and in most situations readily correctable. 'Clomid' is one first line drug for the condition used to 'kick start' the ovaries. It is not clear from your query whether you started with 150mg or gradually increased to that level. Usual initial dose is 50mg and only if your ovary fail to respond to that dose, higher doses are used. With higher doses, though there is a higher chance of ovarian stimulation, the fertility rates actually fall.
Another thing to remember here is that, though everything is right, the chance to get fertilized is around 35-40% only. So dont get disheartened. Your chances of pregnancy sure increases with further cycles. Good Luck.
