I am 30 years and 3 months old. I have endometriosis and PCOS. I have tried 2 clomid/IUI cycles and 1 pergonal/IUI cycle that resulted
in a chemical pregnancy. Here is my dilema

My FSH tends to be on the high side my RE says from my endometriosis. The cut off at my clinic is a 9. I have had FSH's of 9.7 and 9
where I responded just OK to clomid and pergonal. After my chemical pregnancy, I came back to do another pergonal/IUI cycle and my
FSH was 10.4. My RE put me on bcp's for 42 days. I went back yesterday to start my cycle, and my FSH actually went up. It was a 12.
NOW she wants me to change the pill I was on and do this for ANOTHER 42 days!! The nurse said that the pill just didn't supress me.

IVF isn't going to be an option for me. My RE is pushing for IVF. I am currently taking metformin and my RE was going to have me take
dexamethasone with my next cycle. I am supposed to make another appointment with my RE to discuss the "next step". As far as I am
concerned, I am not sure that I want there to be a "next step." What are my chances anyway? And isn't IVF really not a good idea to do
anyway when a person has an elevated FSH? How would you treat someone with this problem? Thanks. Leslie
