  • I have pcos too and have never had to start my clomid. I seem to get pregnant right before I start it...LOL.

    Anyway, the doc told me you start it on day 5, take it for 5 and have sex every other day for 5 after that or something similar. I just remember his instructions were 5-5-5.

    BTW...i hope it works for you. I only had a period in Jan. and Aug. this year and found out recently I am pregnant. So there is hope!

  • No, you count the CD1 as the first day you start your period....when you actually need to wear a pad, and it's red blood. That is considered cycle day 1. And I took clomid days 3-7 also. Some people take it 5-9, but if your doctor said 3-7 then do that. Good luck to you :)
