Very Low sperm count situation Can I take clomid (clomiphene) and proxeed plus together

Very Low sperm count situation 
Can I take clomid (clomiphene) and proxeed plus together

Yes: Yes, you can take those together. If your sperm count has not improved after 3 months on Clomid (clomiphene) then I would see a urologist for an evaluation. Sometimes medications just do not work and you have to rely on medical techniques to improve your chances for conception. Intrauterine insemination (IUI) and IVF may be your best options. ...Read more

What other drugs besides Clomid (clomiphene) are used to get a woman pregnant?  My wife is on 100 mg of Clomid (clomiphene) and she ovulates normally.  If Clomid (clomiphene) doesn't work, will she be given a different fertility drug?

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

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
