Will clomid help me conceiving?
Q: I am a 29 years old female suffering from irregular periods for the last one year. I am undergoing fertility treatment. The doctor has prescribed me Ovral G for four months to get periods. I have been trying to conceive with IVF (in vitro fertilisation). In the next cycle, the doctor plans for clomid induction. Am I on the right mode of treatment?
A:The clomid is for egg formation and along with that the size of the follicle to see egg formation by transvaginal scanning needs to be done from the 9th day of your cycle, every alternate day so that coitus.IUI can be timed with the egg formation, at midcycle. The tubes must be patent before this medicine is started- This is done either by sonosalpingography/HSG. If cycles have been irregular- the cause too must be established- is it infection/ PCOD, or hormone imbalance/thyroid problem- that needs treatment before egg formation is begun.
