Dear Polly

Before any treatment is commenced it would be important to find out why are you not ovulating, is it because of a high Prolactin level, is it because of an abnormal Thyroid level or is it because of conditions such as Polycystic ovarian syndrome. It would therefore be better to treat those medical conditions first to see if ovulation would then return or not. Generally Clomiphene Citrate is a tablet that is used for anovulation and if despite Clomiphene Citrate ovulation still does not occur then you would require injectable forms of medication that contain the hormone FSH. These drugs however should be taken with advise and control by a medical personnel.
