i'm trying for my second, i have irregular period and prolly not ovulating properly that's why i would like to take clomid. can i take clomid even i have irregular period? if i get my period for this month, can i start taking clomid? then stop and wait for my next period? or clomid should be taken regularly every month? pls help. advise. thank you.
I had irregular periods and took clomid for one month and got pg the first try. They usually let you take it for 3-4 months. I have a friend that took it for 3 months and stopped because RE recommended and got pg the first month without it.
Actually, you do not need to get a period in order to start clomid. When I first started taking it I hadn't had a period in 7 months....It worked fine. Just a little FYI for ya! :-) Where are you in your cycle?
Since I don't get regular periods - off the pill - I was put on Clomid this month while TTC.
I ovulated very late this month and my period still hasn't come == I am on day 36 now. Dr. put me on progesterone to bring on a period - after my blood test showed negative. If I don't get it again, then I have to take another PT.
You take Clomid for 5 days, starting the 3rd day of your period. You might need progesterone to get a period first. That's usually a 5-day pill, as well. You need to get your hormones checked, b/c even if you get pregnant - you need progesterone to keep it attached and it sounds like you are lacking that hormone. Good luck and keep me posted.
