I saw in your blog you wrote about determining the success rates for couples on a more case-by-case basis, rather than just everyone going off the 15%/natural cycle or 18%/Clomid cycle (or that is what I gathered from it anyways). I was wondering how exactly this is done? If I knew I had a higher chance of success due to certain factors, I would be more willing to make the leap. Even though MS has said "the majority of couples become pregnant after a few cycles," when I figure the 18% x 3 = 54% that's only a little over half, and of course a small % will miscarry, leaving it to about half in my opinion, after 3 cycles.
My husband & I are young (27), healthy, the only issue is I have irregular cycles which was easily remedied with Clomid as I got pregnant my 2nd cycle of it for my last child. I have never had a miscarriage, and my 1st pregnancy was also a suspected vanishing twin pregnancy, so obviously I ovulated more than 1 egg WITHOUT the Clomid. But I know no one can tell you for sure exactly what % success rate you may have, but perhaps there is a way to know if a given couple has a higher or lower chance?
P.S. I know you have a lot of ?'s to answer already!
