Clomid during IVF protocol

Post by mcpb » Mon Nov 09, 2015 9:09 pm

Can you explain why clomid would be added to an IVF protocol? My next IVF protocol will include estrogen and testosterone priming along with menopur, clomid and saizen. I had a successful IVF/ICSI pregnancy 3 years ago with a similar protocol but with follistim instead of the clomid. I am 36 years old with FSH of 7 but AMH of .7. My husband has some morphology issues. I'm just curious what the clomid will do. I thought it was used to help with ovulation? Thanks in advance.

In some women expecting a low response adding Clomid may be helpful in increasing the response.

You can ask your doctor why he/she felt Clomid would be useful specifically for you.
