Multivitamin with folic acid supplementation is recomended for women attempting pregnancy.

Like your doctor, I advise my patients to start to try right away after surgery. Four days seems ambitious but the surgery is often done in the first two weeks of a cycle, so four days after may be just the right time.

Try not to look at each cycle as a failure. You are going through a phase of treatment that is the hardest, waiting to see if it works. Think of it as a four or six cycle "experiment". You aren't ready to move on until the trial is complete.

Clomid or other ovulation inducing medications may increase your chance of pregnancy by increasing the number of eggs that you produce, it may also increase your chance of twins. Make sure that you have discussed the risks and benefits of colomid completely with your doctor.

If you are less than 37 years old, you owe it to yourself to try for at least a few cycles before going on to IVF. If you are over 37 you should think about moving on to IVF sooner.

Good Luck,

: I want to thank Dr. Barad for all the great info you've given me. I was unsure whether to consider another surgery again, since 2 in 6 months have been hard on my body. I start clomid today for the first time and I'm not sure what to expect. What vitamins and etc should I avoid? I want to keep myself healthy, a multi and folic acid everyday. I am scared. We were sure that this cycle after surgery would've worked. It started 4 days after the lap, was it too soon to hope for pregnancy? I was told that the sooner the better. If this cycle of clomid doesn't work, what suggestions do you have? thank you so much for your support. Sincerely, Tiffany
