My menses last month was on 18 October 2012, the gynae fed me on clomid from day 2 to 6, my 1st IUI was done on 1 November 2012. My menses came for this month was on 19 November 2012 (is a delay of two days from last month). If I have an irregular menses? how I know when I ovulate, even I used the ovulation kits? When is my ovulation since is so irregular? Ive tried all ways to be pregnant since the month of April 2012, yet not sucessful till now :( Blood test, sperm motility check, IUI done, check womb, ovulation and scan etc. My husband sperm motility is low and now I am 41 will there be miracles to be pregnant again?

At the age of 41, chances of pregnancy with milder treatments are very low. Plus if your husband's sperm count is low & you are not ovulating regularly, its better to go for IVF/ICSI(Test tube baby) for better chance of pregnancy.
Wish you good luck.

Thanks for the query.

Two days delay in onset of periods can be taken as normal only. You can track the ovulation by follicular study and can plan intercourse or IUI around that time.
You can try one more IUI, possibly this time you may succeed.
If not better to go for IVF (In vitro fertilization), which is having comparatively high success rate.
Take care
