Hi Dr Sterling,
I have been on clomid for about 4 months now. Last month I ovulated for the first time however conception did not occur. My periods also haven't really come back properly - during the clomid all I get is a dark chocolate discharge although last week I had a proper period. I don't have a great health history as I suffered anorexia in 2002 and relapsed again about 3 years ago however I have been good now for about 2 years. I find it quite stressful not having been able to conceive yet - been off the pill for about 2 1/2 years. My gynaecologist has diagnosed me with PCOS also. I have read a bit lately on acupuncture being good in helping some people conceive - do you have any advice on this? Also how long should I persist with the clomid before going down the road of IVF? I am 25 and my husband is 28. Haven't had hubby's swimmers tested yet.
I exercise regularly (weights 2-3 times per wk & walk 2-3 times per week) and eat well
I would be really greatful to hear your advice.
Thanks for your time.
