Trying to conceive. Prescribed Clomid, Fertomid and folic acid. Chances of conceiving?

Hi am 24years and my husband and I have been trying to conceive our first child for a year and a half now without any success. I went to the doctor a month before and he prescribed clomid for 5 days, I lost one tablet and took 4 tablets 1 a day and it didn t work, he said i should take it from day 5-9. I went back and he gave me another cycle for fertomid he says I should take it from day 3-7 and he put me on folic acid too 1 tablet a day. I am afraid it won t work second time around, what are the chances of me conceiving this time around?

Thanks for your query.

I read your query and understand your concerns.

Following is my reply:

Clomid is given to increase the follicular size. It doesnot guarantee the pregnancy.

Folic acid is to support pregnancy in case if it occurs.

I suggest you do following test:

1) HSG to check your tubal patency.
2) semen analysis of your husband.
3) Regular follicular growth scan to see follicular growth.

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