if 3rd day FSH level is17,5,is it possible to become pregnant with clomiphene?if a doctor do this test to the patient and tell the patient that she will become pregnant with 18% possiblity,is it true or the doctor just wants to get money of this couple?!

I am not going to make any

I am not going to make any judgments about your physician and he or she may well have very good reasons for making such a prediction. But, here's what I do know about FSH levels - yours is high.

To understand FSH, it is the main hormone that is responsible for producing mature eggs. So it is important. However, in this case, lower is better. Physicians like to see the FSH be under 9, which suggests a good response to ovarian stimulation.

If the numbers are 9-11, the chances are still fair, but reduced.

12-15 indicates lower response, and poorer embryo quality with lower live birth rate.

16-19, where yours falls, indicate a greater reduction in embryo quality and in the response to stimulation, as well as a lower live birth rate.

Anything over 20 often means they are not a viable candidate for IVF with their own eggs.

What does that mean for you? I don't know. It depends on your age, on your other hormone levels, your partner's sperm and other factors.

If you are concerned that your health care provider may be offering you false hope, then perhaps the next best option is to get a second opinion.

Well, some are really

Well, some are really money-maker from this kind of instance. Just dont let them explore your embryo stem cell. I hope you can get pregnant soon.The U.S. Court of Appeals has ruled that embryonic stem cell exploration can be financed by federal grants. The appellate court reversed a federal court ruling last year that prevented any embryonic stem cells research from receiving federal financing. The controversy is over that human embryos could be wrecked in harvesting stem cells. Several individuals are still up in arms about research involving embryonic stem cells.
