Please speak with your doctor about the pros and cons of these options in your situation. Good luck! ...Read more

I have used Clomid (clomiphene) for 6 cycles 3 years ago and did not get pregnant, am i able to try it again now?

Maybe: Most pregnancies with Clomid (clomiphene) happen in the first 3-4 cycles, and it's less likely to succeed after 6 failed cycles. If you had timed intercourse before, Clomid (clomiphene) with inseminations (iui) is better. If ultrasound monitoring showed a thin endometrial lining on clomid, (clomiphene) Letrozole is a better choice. If you have significant tubal issues or your partner has severe sperm problems ivf is the best option. ...Read more
