Our expert says:
The answer lies in the degree severity of the PCOS and whether there is associated androgen related problems or other hormonal imbalances such as prolactin and thyroid functions. Additional the question of ovarian resistance might pose a problem to the level of ovulation induction and it may sometimes require not only Clomid but also a combination of Clomid and injections to get the desired response from the ovary. In my experience Clomid is only of value in mild cases of polycystic ovary syndrome whereas in moderate to severe cases we have swung exclusively to the used of injectables with great results. The decision usually is based on very careful ultrasound findings as well as the level of hormonal imbalance. The fact that you do not ovulate or menstruate may suggest significant ovarian resistance and perhaps the Clomid treatment may not be sufficient in your case.
