I am TTC, my wife and I have tried inseminating 3 times at home using frozen washed sperm from the sperm bank with anonymous donor (two ICI, one IUI - two inseminations per cycle) with no success. I just went to see the doctor at Kaiser and was left with more questions than answers. The doctor immediately prescribed Clomid (without even asking about my cycle or looking at my charts) and is all set to get me going on HCG shots and follicle scans, etc.
Problem is, my insurance doesn't cover any of it, so cost is definitely an issue. But also I am not sure if/when it's time to start going through all that. I am 36, my cycle is generally pretty normal (except since we've started TTC it's gotten a little more irregular and I'm not feeling confident anymore in my ability to know when I am ovulating). I've been taking Vitex, going to acupuncture, drinking fertility tea. The doctor did say I have low progesterone, so I am going to start taking a natural supplement. But other than that everything seems to look normal, says Dr.
Any of you have experience with this decision point? Advice about what to try next?
