    Default Clomid + IUI and endo

    Hey guys I'm needing insights... we have been TTC for 12mths and after no luck I seen the gyno who suspects possible endo as I have an adhesion on my ovary to my bladder. I have seen a fertility clinic who have suggested using clomid with IUI. I track my ovulation every month and get the LH levels so I know I'm ovulating. I also am regular with my periods. I'm worried that using clomid I won't fall pregnant the first cycle and will have to result in ivf anyway. How many eggs did you release on clomid and did u used it when you had no issues with ovulation and was that successful? Is it better to do natural intercourse iui on clomid? Thanks

    Hi, Im sort of in the same boat as you but I have been using clomid since March this year but no IUI, just clomid, trigger/booster shots and progesterone tablets as well as what seems like hundreds of ultrasounds and blood tests.
    Trying to make this a long story short...started trying in 6/15 by 11/15 we knew something was wrong and went to see a doctor who referred us to a fertility doctor. Our first appointment was 3/16 and was put on clomid straight away. After two months of trying she suspected I either had cysts or endo, turned out I have endo (who knew!). I had my procedure in May and started treatment again which inc clomid and trigger/booster shots and also constant ultrasounds. After only two short months I got pregnant... 13 months after starting our journey we were pregnant. Unfortunately I suffered a missed/silent miscarriage at 6.3weeks but did not find out until 8.5 weeks when we had our first OB appointment.
    This is our first month of TTC after the procedure. I am currently 11dpo but this month we tried something different, no more clomid and instead had daily injections for 8 days followed by an ultrasound and then the booster shot. I am now on daily progesterone tablets up until my blood test next week.
    Feel free to ask any questions about clomid or any other fertility treatment ive been going through

    Ultrasound reports say thay i have small ovaries and less follicle activity. We are trying for 5 months now. I am really worried, does this come in the way of getting pregnant?

    Hi, that's where the clomid come into it or puregon injections which is what i did last month. I'm 33 and have been told my egg count is quite low for someone my age. I don't ovulate naturally and can't produce large enough follicles (if any) and that's why I took clomid and puregon. The clomid helps you produce big enough follicles to be able to ovulate. I don't produce anywhere big enough in my left ovary and in my right if I'm lucky I get 1 or 2 follicles that are the right size for me to be able to get my trigger shot and then I ovulate anywhere from 24-36 hours later.
    I currently take the injections for about 6-8 days, go in for an ultrasound to see the size of the follicles and then get a trigger shot and lastly go through the dreaded TWW. My husband and I have been TTC for 17 months

    i think it's worth it but that's my personal opinion because i need to take it to be able to get large enough follicles. i noticed a huge difference after taking it and did get pregnant but it will work differently for some people and the side effects would be different too. Do some more research if you need to and make sure you're 100% comfortable before taking clomid

    @Lillybugg1 I highly recommend having your endo treated if at all possible. We literally tried on and off for 9 years (both naturally and a lot of IVF cycles). I had a laparoscopy in August, and miraculously fell pregnant naturally in September!! I can't say 100% that it was due to laparoscopy but I have a strong feeling it helped. Good luck!!

    Hey guys,
    Thanks for your replies. I haven't logged in for a while so sorry I haven't responded.

    Since writing my post I had a hycosy test done and my tubes weren't blocked so that's great news.

    They aren't convinced I have endo so for now we are going to keep trying for a few more months.

    I've started clomid this. Cycle and will have a ultrasound to check the follicle. Hopefully we have some good luck this month.

    I ovulate monthly and my periods are regular so I think the fertility clinic is trying to pinpoint it exactly for me so we can better our chances.

    Has anyone done the same thing?
