I'm clomid dumb

soimpatient - January 19

My husband and I have been ttc for only 5 months now but we're having a hard time because I have such irregular cycles...I haven't had a period in 2 months so I don't think I'm ovulating. I am wondering if I should ask my doctor for clomid...I've been reading a little bit about it on these boards and I'm wondering what kind of experiences others have had with this reproductive aid.

Since you're so irregular you probably won't have to wait the full year they recommend for women TTC. I saw my dr after 7 months b/c of my increasingly longer cycles, & she ran blood work first to check my thryoid, test for PCOS, etc. I'd say that's the first step for you. I was also prescribed Clomid, been on it for 6 cycles now & I do ovulate every month. But I'm still waiting for my BFP! So, yes, I'd definitely suggest making an appt. with your dr & discussing Clomid. They could also prescribe you Provera to induce your AF. Good luck! Baby dust.

Hey there. I have only been ttc for that long and will be starting clomid this cycle. I had 60+ day cycles and 75+ day cycles-and I NEVER got my period until it was induced by provera or prometrium. So, I agree with Mega about the blood work, just to make sure. I was going to wait longer to ask, but I was getting so frustrated!! I know how you feel. I basically wasted 6 months, but I couldn't have really known that before.....Were you on the pill ever? I think that is what screwed me up.
