medication along side stimulated IUI

hi. Just curious . am in middle of making decision to go for IUI or IVF. i have one tube blocked and husband semen analysis is on boader line. all my harmone tests are fine. but i never had my estradiol level checked as doctor never asked for it.

doctor said of i wish to go for IUI i will have to take cerophene 4 tablets daily 2 in morning and 2 in evening. (i had shown good response on clomid as well took 2 courses and had eggs on both sides got injection on day 10 but still no pregnancy)  my doctor has not shared any other mediation for me for IUI. on net many are given pregestrone vaginally, is this for only those patients who have problems with their progestrone level? can you kindly tell which medications are generally given during IUI before and after so that if i decide to go for IUI i can discuss in detail with my doctor.

also if God forbid i go for IUI and it fails can i go for IVF the very next month. the month IUI fails i start taking birth control pills and then go ahead with IVF. or should i wait a month or so for effect of stimulation drug to wear off. should i give rest to my ovaries for a while instead of first stimulating them then using birth control pills and then again IVF medication. what is general practice in medicine.

lastly can IVF cycle be started on 21st day of period , provided the patient is not on birthcontrol pills.

Many doctor do not use such high doses of Clomid unless you have to because it can thin out the endometrial lining  however if it takes that high of a dose to get you to ovulate then fine.  Some use Progesterone suppositories after insemination but it may not be that crucial but it certainly can be added.  Some other doctors try injectable medications like gonadotropins like Follistim or Gonal F or Menopur and IUI before going on to IVF. But since your husband semen analysis is so poor IVF/ICSI may be the best chances for you to get pregnant.
The last question, I already answered in your previous posts.
