Hi Anita
Next time you can use clomiphene citrate 100 mg from day 2 of menses for 5 days with estrogen support and then start her on Inj.FSH 150 IU alternate day ( 3 times).Letrozole is banned nowadays.
Also start her on recent preparations containing myoinositol for better ovulation. if the size of follicle not increasing then consider surgical option like ovarian drilling.
best regards
