Hello Mama and welcome.

How were your daughter's periods before she skipped the 2 months?

Has she ever had a D&C?

Does she have hot flashes? Thank you.

When a woman doesn't get her period, and she's not pregnant, that generally means that she didn't ovulate. So it's common to try to bring on a period with provera or norethindrone and then use clomid to get her to ovulate.

It's a little unusual that her period didn't come after 5 days of provera. Hopefully it will come after the norethindrone. If not, that would suggest that her estrogen levels are low. In that case the clomid may not work well.

The best thing to do now is to wait to see whether she gets a period after the norethindrone. Since she doesn't have hot flashes, she most likely will. Then the clomid will be appropriate. Best wishes to you both.
