I am wondering whether anyone out there has been in this situation, and could offer some advice.
I am 40. Myself and my partner have been trying for a baby for 1 year without success.
My doctor examined me and said my ovaries and cervix were fine. My periods are every 30 days (not heavy but painful).
My doctor referred me to a gynecologist and I underwent a laparoscopy on 20 December. The gynecologist said there were some signs of endometriosis (more around the bowel), and any present near the uterus he moved to one side, away from the uterus (!). Other than that, he said everything was fine.
My partner has had his sperm analysed, all ok. I have had the day 21 blood test and thyroid test, all OK.
The gynecologist prescribed 50mg of clomid, as a first course of treatment, to take on day 2 to day 6 of my cycle. I took them and had no side effects, although my period only lasted 2.5 days (normally 4- 5 days). Today is cycle day 11 and I have been for a scan. I am quite confused.
The nurse said I had 3 cysts on my right side and none on my left. The uterus lining was fine. She believed these to be cysts due to their shape and appearance - they had septum running between each one. She said they could be removed with another laparoscopy(!),or as part of the scan procedure.
I still have to go for a day 21 blood test to check for progesterone levels. She advised that days 14 to 16 would be right for intercourse, but did not say whether or not to bother this month due to the cysts. I also have to stop taking clomid and go for a day 5 scan next month.
Can anyone advise on the following:
Are these cysts likely to be due to the clomid (I would have thought they would be evident from the laparoscopy/doctors exam if I had them already)?
Why have I been asked to stop taking clomid, are the cysts an effect of hyperstimulation?
Why do I have to return for a day 5 scan? What will this show?
Can I still get pregnant this month?
I know I should have asked, but I seemed to have so many questions that I never thought of these until I left the hospital!
i am trying for a baby for last 4 years.but cant due to Dr. missguiding us.PCOS is my main problem.But the Dr. gave me only vitamine and norethisterone which will not going to help me for infertility.
should i start to take a comination of clomephene citrate 100 mg and metformine 500mg.
