Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
There are lots of reasons of infertility and treatment options are different.Some women conceive with the above combination but some do not,even having PCOS.So, everything depends on the basic problem and response of treatment depends on that.I suggest you to meet an infertility specialist for an opinion regarding this.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counseling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care

I'm sorry, you're facing trouble conceiving..
I cannot be of much help with those very medications usage..Just wanted to send you a huge supportive hug. Also try these strategies to help manage emotional stress during treatment:
Express yourself.Reach out to others rather than repressing guilt or anger.
Stay in touch with loved ones.Talking to your partner, family and friends can be very beneficial. The best support often comes from loved ones and those closest to you.
Reduce stress.Some studies have shown that couples experiencing psychological stress had poorer results with infertility treatment. Try to reduce stress in your life before trying to become pregnant.
Exercise and eat a healthy diet.Keeping up a moderate exercise routine and a healthy diet can improve your outlook and keep you focused on living your life.
Also the treatment option I've read a lot about - mitochondrial replacement therapy is one of the innovative methods to treat infertility. This option is relevant to women over forty years old who have treated infertility with no luck. In the most of cases women have a low functional activity of mitochondria. And those in their turn are the most important components of any cell. Mitochondria are often called “cellular power plants”. It's so because of their ability to convert nutrient molecules into energy. Mitochondria provide eggs with the necessary energy for normal functioning. A woman facing the constant failure, needs to restore the mitochondria of oocytes..Just for general outlook, I've got interested in this option myself.
Hope my message finds you well.
