Describe the protocols Joseph Garza used in your cycles at The Advanced Fertility Center of San Antonio and their degree of success.
Dr Garza put me on Clomid days 5-10 for the first cycle to induce ovulation and instructed us to have timed intercourse during our ovulation week. The result was that the medication made me ovulate, but in the end we received a negative pregnancy test. I am currently on my second round of Clomid, cycle day 8 and will be taking my fourth day of Clomid today. Will have an IUI this coming week with Ovidrel as a trigger shot before the procedure.
