Hi,thanks for query.You should take second opinion.You have got all right to know about your test results and planning of treatment.You should discuss this with your doctor.Clomid is given to induce ovulation in cases where there is no ovulation.Once you are already pregnant in past your chances of pregnancy are good as major things are ruled out.Please take a opinion,you should become pregnant.Bye.

Hi,I’m 31 yrs old.My height is 5’5’ and my weight is 83 kgs.I’ve been married fr 9 years now and has not been able to conceive till date.had 3 failed IUIs and 1 failed IVF.Reason for my failed IVF was poor egg and sperm quality. Recently I’ve started visiting my infertility expert again and she again took my TSH,AMH and Insulin tests my reports are as followed: AMH: 6.49 (my Doc said they are high due to PCOD) TSH: 3.817 ulU/mL Insulin(fast):11.80 Insulin( PP): 63.10 μU/mL After seeing the reports and doing the ultrasound she told me that I suffer from PCOD and is on higher side of thyroid and insulin.She then prescribed me with Thyronorm 12.5 mcg and metmorfin 500mg along with folic acid. And paternia and some other tablets to my husband. I want to know what are my chances of getting pregnant this time by an IVF?Is her treatment correct?

I saw my physician on Thursday of last week. From Monday, my beta had only gone from 385 to 556, and my progesterone went down from 10.1 to 8.8. I have been having severe cramps but no bleeding. According to my calculations/ovulation I should be no less than 5 weeks 5 days right now, but the transvaginal u/s they did on Thursday put me at 4 weeks 3 days...we re 5-7 days off. He made me cancel a road trip, because he didn t want me on the road when things went south . Does anyone have any experience with this? I miscarried with a blighted ovum around 9 months ago, and am concerned it s happening again.
