Trying to have baby, tried several fertility drugs like Clomid, Norethisterone, no help. Can I conceive somehow ?

Hi, my husband and I have been trying to start a family for nearly 5 years now but my periods are very irregular . We have tried several fertility drugs such as clomid but with no joy. I recently had a hysteroscopy to remove some polyps but the lining of my womb is just too thick (averaging between 38-43mm because I rarely bleed ) i went to the docs and he perscribed me norethisterone 5mg one to be taken 3 times daily for 21 days and then to take a break for a week, for a total of 4cycles (4 months). I am under the impression that at this dosage i am unable to conceive even though they will be regulating my periods. im at a loss of what to to, im unsure if my periods will go back to the way they were when i come off the tabs and if they do were do i go from there?? any advice or experiance would be much appreciated!

Thanks for your query.

I read your query and I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply:

1) You have taken the preliminary medicines. But what about investigations.

2) Please get HSG test to check patency of fallopian tubes.

3) Also get semen analysis of husband before going ahead with treatment.

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