Hi, I have been trying to conceive for a year now. I had a suspected miscarriage a year and a half ago afetr which i was on pill for 2 months.When we first went to the doctor after trying on our own for 4 months, she started me on 50 mg clomid from day 2 of my periods. Simultaneously she tested me for LH, FSH and prolactin. She said my prolactin was too high. So she gave me a prolactin inhibitor afte which in the next cycle she said it was normal. She also said my progesterone levels were not ok, so she started me on Duphaston from day 16 to day 21 for every cycle.
I had HSG done on me and my tubes were found to be patent. I have been on clomid for total 4 cycles now. Second and third cycles was on 100 mg when she gave me ovitrelle to induce ovulation. nothing happened.in 4th cycle she said she saw 8 follicles (4 on each ovary) i dont know why but she told me its is PCOS. she started me on glucophage (2 times a day) for the next 2 cycles i was just asked to take duphaston on day 16 -25.
Now i am on my 5 th month of clomid. this time i am going for ultrasound and she says if the response is good, she will try 2 more cycles after which she said would like to do a laproscopy. i really do not know what to do.
She has never mentioned IUI so far. Also i dont know if i have PCOS or not, but glucophage has helped me shed excess flabs on my tummy and body. I usually have a 30 day period and it has been regular all my life varying may be a 2-3 days. I used to havea very heavy bleeding on day 2 and 3 which has surprisingly reduced now since i started glucophage. however other than that no complains (even the cramps have reduced).
i have been reading a lot on internet and it seems laproscopy is not that necessary with the advent of better IUI and IVF techniques so i want to avoid it at all costs.
can anyone tell me if it would be wise to go for a laproscopy? Also should i tell my gynae to do an IUI on me this cycle?(expenditure is not a concern for us right now)
also if i have a 30 day cycle what are the days am i expected to ovulate? is it ok to take Duphaston from day 16 and is it ok to do an ultrasound on 11 th day. My gynae prefers to do an ultrasound uptill maximum 13th day and no more. Is that right??
i am asking this because i read soemwhere that with clomid ovulation is delayed and can happen even after 16 th day.
