Hello all. Hope I post in the correct place. My wife was on the standard pill for several years. She is now 33 almost 34 and I am 38. After the first 18 months with no luck, her OBGYN put her on Clomid which she has done 4 cycles. I was also tested and my count was like 23 million and my Urologist said all looked good with me.
Wife’s blood work, ovulation, hormones etc all check good when they have been tested. Still no luck. Anyhow we check her ovulation each month with a test kit and now have it down to pretty much what day it will be.
So I have been reading through some of the posts and have some questions. Hope you can help.
I see a lot of folks on Clomid get something checked called Follicles? And that their size should be like 20cm? This has never been mentioned to us, just that she takes the Clomid. When on this Clomid, it also makes her very dry and if I had to say, I would say she pretty much does not produce any noticeable cervical fluid described as sticky eggwhites. We have also tried to use the preseed lube to help. Is that normal when on Clomid?
We were thinking about the IUI option but just down know. She we pretty much drop the OB for this and look for an RE??? We were trying to use the OB because he was able to file some on Insurance but if she should be having other checks done, maybe its time to move on?
We also do not know anyone that has been to an RE to even give us a recommendation and from the searching I have done we will need to go the New Orleans and surrounding areas to find one. How the heck do we choose someone out of them all???
Do you all have any other suggestions on where we are and what we have tried so far? Im not getting any younger! LOL
