Trying to conceive

just want to share my journey and try get a bit of advice or hear some success stories.
Have had 3 laproscopy surgeries within the last 6 years for endometriosis, first was in 2009 and last one being 2-3 weeks ago And results showed that my endo was very minimal (yay). differnce beteeen these 3 surgerys is that at the same time (during last op) I also had the dye test, my surgeon said she had to try 3 times until the dye eventually had a spill. So safe to say my tubes were blocked and now are open and flushed out. When i left the hospital i was given a prescription for clomid, i am now on cycle day 4 and have just taken my 3rd tablet. Surgeon showed me the photos on my insides so show me how much endo I had, I questioned her about somethung that looked like a pimple on my ovarie (closest thing i can compare it to looking like sorry) and she said that was my egg.
Earlier this year I had an HSG test and ultra sound, HSG showed my tubes were "irregular" but did have a little spill after few attempts to get dye through (this procedure was very very uncomfortable and painful). ultra sound showed that my right ovarie was extremely high But they were both in 'good condirion'.
My periods are very regular and bang on 28 days each month. Partner is a heavy smoker and is having trouble trying to cut down, hes been tester and sperm count is good, but the amount of 'fast swimmers' is not as high as it should be. Gyno has insited that he take 3 months of menevit pills to boost his sperm.
I am hoping I will fall preg within the next couple months!
Can anybody tell me if clomid has helped them get pregnant and how long did it take?
Thanks ladies look forward to hearing your stories
