Hello NIcole,
Okay, here is what I do as an ob/gyn.
I recommend taking Metformin 1500mg per day.
Take Clomid 100mg on day 5 through day 9 (so 5 days total).
Have sex on day 12 through day 16 of your cycle.
I hope this helps, if you have additional quesitons, please ask and Please click on ACCEPT, thank you.

Hello Brad,
Well I dont know when to take it. cause i dont know if this is my period or not. i dont want to take this is not my period.and if it is then its early. I have been TTC for a year now. the doctor at the OB/GYN ( i live on a military post) said that he think i should start on 50mg and see how it works. but I am just so lost with this whole thing. i get what your saying but the metformin make me run to the bathroom every few min and right after i eat on a 1000 mg and he told me to try and keep taking it at 1000mg and if i could not handle it then to go back to 500mg... i mean i think this is my period but i never had a period like this cause its early and i spotted for friday and saturday and nothing at all on sunday and now i am blooding...
and he told me that i should take it on the 3rd day cause the 3rd day is your real peiod and then to go to the lab for blood work i guess on day 20 dose this sound right or should i go and see someone other then him.
thanks nicole

Hello,
If you are not having regular periods, then you might need provera 10 mg per day for 7 days to start your period. And, when you start your bleeding - count this as the FIRST day, and then start the Clomid 100mg on day 5 until day 9 - (50mg of clomid will not do anything - I have never seen 50mg work). Also, many obgyn use different days to use the clomid - but where I work, all 44 ob/gyns that I work with ALL use the day 5 through 9 cycle).
If you have additional questions, please ask and please click on ACCEPT, thank you.

I just talk to my OB/GYN doctor and he told me that i could start the clomid today but he would like me to start tomorrow. but today i was on the web to see when i was ovulating. and i did a few date from the time i started my period to see if i was ovulating. and from yesterday but i took a OPK and the line was a little pink. really light. do you think i should take the clomid today.
when is the best time to take it?
Health Professional: Dr. Owen, Doctor replied 7 years ago
Well, the best time to start clomid is day 5 through day 9 at 100 mg per day - NOT when you are about to ovulate - you need to give clomid about a week prior to ovulation.

Hello,

Can taking Clomid make your period come late?

cause i have yet to get a period and i am now on 18 days late.

i took a at home test and it was neg. and had blood work on the 30th of march my period should have been here on the 26th of march. and the blood worked came back neg. but he told me to come back this friday for blood work. should have ask him to do a ultasound?

Health Professional: Dr. Owen, Doctor replied 7 years ago
Hello,
Clomid really does not have an affect on your period, but if you have a persistant ovarian cyst caused by clomid, this can delay your period.

Hello,
You should only need an ultrasound if you are having pain.
But, with other symptoms that you are having I would recommend an exam by your doctor.

i had cramping for two week and now it only when i am doing things.
Health Professional: Dr. Owen, Doctor replied 7 years ago
Hello,
Given you say you have PCOS - I would recommend having this evaluated by an ob/gyn for ovarian cysts.

my ob/gyn said that i did not have PCOS when he read my ultrasound
Health Professional: Dr. Owen, Doctor replied 7 years ago
I understand that - but an ultrasound can not definitively rule out PCOS, so what I am saying is that you 'might' have this -

And feel like I could be getting sick. I don't know why it is a good thing or could this be cause of the clomid
Thanks
Nicole
Health Professional: Dr. Owen, Doctor replied 7 years ago

I usually prescribe clomid 100mg days 5 through 9.

It is hard to tell - but getting sick could be from ovulation (ovarian cysts), but too early for a pregnancy.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
