    Very Frustrated
    An_241766 posted:
    My wife and I have been trying since January 2011. She's been off birth control since July 2010. We are both getting very frustrated as her OB has found nothing wrong yet. Her next step is the HSG which I doubt will find nothing wrong (she has no STDs or PID). My semen analysis results were normal and her day 3 bloodwork results were normal. Her OB will prescribe Clomid next, but I'm not hopeful that will help since the OB told us she is ovulating normally. Is there any way we can bypass the Clomid? I just want to get a referral to a fertility clinic. I'm sick of trying!

    My boyfriend and I tried for 1.5 years before I got pregnant. Unfortunately the pregnancy was not viable, but I have now gotten a positive pregnancy test again 2.5 months after the MC. The doctor said that some times it just takes time before it "sticks"..

    We were both tested before this, and everything was normal. I asked if I should take clomid, but the doctor said this would make no difference since I am ovulating normally. I do not understand why this should be different for your wife. Wish you both the best of luck.

    Thanks. Congrats to you. I agree...I don't think the Clomid will make a difference. It seems like the docs have different viewpoints on the effectiveness of Clomid for women that ovulate normally.
