FSH Injections, IVF : If Clomid (clomiphene) alone does not work, adding IUI (intrauterine insemination) can improve Clomid (clomiphene) pregnancy rates. The next step after that would be to take fsh or injectable fertility drugs. Using these drugs in an ivf cycle is safest, but injections can also be combined with iui. Please speak with your doctor about the pros and cons of these options in your situation. Good luck! ...Read more

Ttc 100 mg Clomid (clomiphene) day 3-7, bleeding day 22, worsening into day 23.. Not spotting, like a light period. Cramping. Normal 27-29 day cycle. What's wrong?

Unsure: Not sure but that is not normal. Clomid (clomiphene) has a side effect of making the lining of the uterus thinner. So i always follow with ultrasound to make sure that is not happening. If it does bleeding can occur earlier from the lining being thin. Clomid (clomiphene) does not work nearly as well in women with regular periods so there may be something else entirely causing the problem like a polyp or fibroid. ...Read more

On 2nd round of Clomid (clomiphene) 100 mg( 3-7) along with injection merional for 5 days ( cd 8-12). Why this injection for 5 days?What are the chances of success

Depends: It depends on the causes of your infertility. However, I have concern about your Clomid (clomiphene) dose. It is too high, and it will have detrimental effect on your endometrium. I am afraid that you may ovulate well, but embryo may not able to implant due to thin lining. In terms of5 days injection, it is ok , but i don't think it will change the outcome that much. ...Read more

No, change but...: You could do days 3-7 as the better choice. However, you should think about considering a consultation about other therapies. We usually talk with patients if they failed to achieve pregnancy after 3 Clomid (clomiphene) cycles. You should also get an amh level to see what your ovarian reserve is to assist you in making decisions about your choices of the next options for treatment. Your age is a factor as wel. ...Read more
