hi Hemant;
The problem with your wife is that there is no ovulation as you mentioned in your report that the follicle is only 15 mm .It should go up to 20-22 mm & rupture to release the egg.Egg formation is very important because egg & sperm have to meet together to have a baby.If there is egg then only IUI is possible if it becomes necessary.Polycystic ovary can be a cause why there is no egg formation as she is on medicines but still there is no egg formed.So first the polycystic ovaries need to be treated please consult your Gynaec doctor for further management/treatment.
All the Best

Hi Hemant
Welcome to HealthcareMagic
First of all you need to repeat LH:FSH test and transvaginal sonography (TVS) on 3rd day of cycle to reach at correct diagnosis. It appears like an ovarian factor infertility . Treatment what your wife is going on is ideal for this situation that is ovulation induction with drugs like clomiphene or letrozol and then intrauterine insemination (IUI) once ovulation occurs. IUI is tried when one fails to conceive naturally. In IUI your best quality sperms will be used so there ll be high chances of conception compared with natural method. IUI is a simple procedure. so dont worry let the drug act and you ll be successful soon . All the best . Take care.
