No big difference: Studies show pregnancy rates are identical starting cc on cd 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5. The main difference is starting later its less likely to have a persistent cyst from the past cycle. For patients not monitored by ultrasound cd 5 may be a better choice, with monitoring it makes little-to- no difference. ...Read more

Femara (letrozole): Femara seems to be better at ovulation induction than clomid (clomiphene). It has a shorter half life therefore it is not in the body very long. Clomid (clomiphene) has a long half life thus after repeated Clomid (clomiphene) cycles the chance of pregnancy decreases due to the estrogen blockage at the uterus. ...Read more

Yes, IVF is better: At age 39 with DOR, you may try few cycles Clomid (clomiphene) IUI, but IVF is a better option. The reason is with DOR, you don't have many embryos to work with. On the other hand, if you do IVF, you may bank embryos and do FET later. At age 39, I strongly recommend to do Pre-implantation genetic screening (PGS) of your embryos prior to transfer. It will increase your change of pregnancy and reduce miscarriage ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
