very low progestrone and not ovulating

Hello and thanks for this opportunity,
I am 32 years old and from 14 years of age had irregular periods(missing for 6 months/a year)for 10moths ive been on clomid the first 5 months my Doc. didnt increase the doze so i was on 50mg then i changed my obgyn and he tried 50 mg 100mg(ovulated but didnt get pregnant)100mg again/150mg and didnt ovulate during this 10 months i gained 20 pounds and I cant tollerate clomid anymore.how else can my low progestrone level 1.24 be rised?will i have any luck with injectables?or in general is by hormonal imbalance curable or i have to take medecation to end of my life?
I forgot to tell that i had laparoscopy done on my right overy 7 years ago because it was swallen and i had so much pain could it be that my tubes are blocked?i have so many questions in my head but the most important one is that if i can use something that really works.
thanks a lot

Let's try to focus a bit! Yes, the injectable medications will help you to ovulate. You should see an infertility specialist at this point, because the injectable medications require more expertise than clomid to manage. Also, even without the past history of pain and the laparoscopy I would recommend that your partner have a sperm count and testing be done to determine if you fallopian tubes are open before starting the injections.

You should see a specialist.  There are many tests you can have done to answer questions.  Also, research PCOS, I have the same symptoms as you and was diagnosed with PCOS.  I am 35 years and still have no children.  Looking into trying again.
