  • I took it for one cycle then found out that my husband had some fertility issues as well so I didn't take it again. Did you ask your doctor about how well it would work with an abnormal cycle? My doctor also had me get some ovulation tests are start taking them at a certain date in my cycle, I can't remember when though.

  • I was told to take it on day 5 of my period to make sure that I ovulated on day 14. I was on clomid for 2 cycles and now have 5 yr old twins.

  • Oh, I forgot my doc put me on Provera. At the time since I have PCOS my cycles were irregular. I dropped 25 lbs and my cycle became regular again thank goodness. But yes, those sound like the instructions I was given as well.

  • As far as I know I don't have PCOS, but I've ALWAYS had CRAZY cycles. Some being 14 day cycles, some 60+, and one time where I bled for 3 months non-stop.

    Anyway. I've taken clomid for two cycles. The first cycle I wasn't tracking temp or anything, and ovulated later than expected, so sex didn't end up timed right. The second cycle I was BBT charting, so was able to identify the late ovulation, and ended up pregnant. I now have a 19 month old.

    About 3 months after I got pregnant, I managed to talk my sister into going to see her doc (she had been "trying" for like 10 years with crazy cycles, but was too scared to even go in for an annual exam). First cycle of clomid and she's now got a 15 month old.

    If you've not already read it, I HIGHLY recommend Taking Charge of Your Fertility also.

    Good luck!

  • Ladies this is helping me out a lot and I thank you all... My worry is that I wont know if im preg b/c of my abnormal af and plus im scared to keep POAS i cry every time it says neg. So since my af is expected to come on or around the 23rd what do you all think i should do? I already have my script for the clomid 100mg.
