Hormone therapy: HCG is human chorionic gonadotropin, which is made by the human placenta and is the basis of the pregnancy test; when it is present it is detected and gives a positive test.

Well: Though ovulating the rate of pregnancy is still about 15%. The Clomid can cause some cervical mucus thickening creating an issue with sperm entering the uterus.

Typically 3 months is about the time frame but discuss with your physician, look up risks and benefits and the doc may go an extra few months. Tubes open? ...Read more
