Our expert says:
If you have polycystic ovarian syndrome or even if you do not have it, the more important thing is that it sounds as if you are ovulating. I am unsure as to why your doctor suggested IVF. Are there any other problems that are present that is causing your difficulty in falling pregnant? You need to check that your husband’s sperm count is normal and you also need to check if your fallopian tubes are patent. If your husband’s semen analysis is normal and your fallopian tubes are patent then you do not need to go straight for IVF, you may try intrauterine insemination first. This procedure costs much less than IVF but it does have a lower success rate.
