Will Fertomid and Duphaston help me conceive?

Q: I am 30 years old and married for 7 years. I have a daughter who is 6 years old. I had got pregnant a second time when she was 8 months old, but got it aborted. Now, it’s been 8 months that I have trying to get pregnant again. I went to meet the doctor and she told me to get some blood tests and HSG, semen analysis of husband. All tests were normal and she prescribed me Fertomid and Duphaston for 2-3 months. We had sex every other day from day 11th to 18th of my cycle. Now, what should I do? Should I go for follicular study? Will it improve my chances of getting pregnant? Or I should go for other options like artificial insemination. Please advice.

A:In normal populations, most women who wish to have a baby conceive within 12 months. Hence 8 months is not that long when every thing is normal in both partners. I do not know the reasons for prescribing clomiphene (Fertomid) and progesterone (Duphaston). Fertomid is indicated in cases where there is inability to conceive due to ovulatory failure. It must not be used when there is no diagnosis. Duphaston (progesterone) is indicated only when there is deficiency of this hormone. If your blood level of progesterone (during luteal phase) is normal, then consumption of this medicine will do little good and lot of harm. You can wait for another few months (say, 4 months) and then take next step, if at all required.
