Hi, I think you can try 3 cycles of ovulation induction with timed intercourse. You can take some medicines like clomiphene for growth of follicles. Track your follicles growth by repeated ultrasound and when follicle is more than 17 to 18 mmm, take injection for rupture. Be in contact with your husband for 2 to 3 days after injection. Take progesterone for next 2 weeks. Do a urine pregnancy test after that. If it doesn't work, then you can go for HSG. HSG is a test to see if tubes are patent or not. If tubes are blocked, you may need to undergo a laparoscopy to confirm that.
