  • Not, sure I'm on my second round so it didn't work for me the first round... it could take several rounds of it before you finally get pregnant....

  • I took two rounds and still nothing. I'm going for another HSG test and maybe a third round of chlomid! Not sure what the doc has in mind for me

  • Clomid never worked for me. I don't have PCOS, I have a severe case of endometriosis. If nothing else works, you might consider contacting Dr. Thomas Hilgers at the Pope Paul VI Institute. He takes patients from all over the country, or he may be able to refer you to someone in your area. He does ovarian wedge resection surgery for PCOS patients. It is not done a lot anymore because most doctors just go from drugs to IVF. The surgery creates fresh, healthy ovarian tissue and is very successful.
