Laurie,

I would definitely ask for ultrasounds - it's the only way to know for sure what's going on. I am 42 and he said even though they don't do it for everyone he thought it was important because time is not on my side. By doing u/s and progesterone test, they knew I was developing an egg and triggering with an HCG shot, but progesterone was still low (not a good 'egg' so to speak). If they don't do that, they don't know if you are producing egg follicles or not, it could be you're not, or like me, just not getting good ones.

Another tidbit - if you can afford it - my advice is to be as aggressive as you are comfortable quickly. We took the normal route and now I am not ovulating at all and I wish we had just gone right to a round of injectibles, then IVF after the 1st or 2nd failed clomid cycle. Instead I'm now 9 months into this and may not even be able to do IVF now - they are recommending donor eggs.

Anyway, don't want to scare you - I just wish I knew more at the beginning of this journey

They are giving me one last attempt with both clomid and injectibles (that should be fun!) if they can get AF to start. So I'm still hoping. Plus I'm looking to begin acupuncture. Other TTC'ers have found it helpful.

Hope my info was helpful and not depressing - I didn't intend it to be - just trying to be informative [img]http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif[/img]
Good luck!!
