Clomid and Progesterone Levels

Hey!  This is my first time to be on this site as well as my first month to take Clomid.  I had my period on June 11, 2007 and began taking 50mg of Clomid the next day for days 2-6 of my cycle.  I tested for ovulation on days 11-17 of my cycle and never had a positive test.  A few days after day 17 I developed a cyst on my right ovary, and then a few days later a cyst on my left ovary.  On day 22 I had my progesterone level taken and it was 22.8.  My Dr. was very excited and said that I did ovulate, just probably later in the month than when I was testing.  I took a Home Preg. Test on Day 30 and it was negative.  Now, I am taking Prometrium to try and get my period...I am on day 32 of my cycle, still with no period.  I have been cramping for about a week, have sore breasts, and have been running to the bathroom all the time.  I know that those could be side effects from the Clomid though.  Anyway, I am wondering, could I be pregnant?  When should I take another HPT?  Also, I don't understand all the abbreviations yet...sorry for the long message!  I would appreciate any insight from people who have or are taking Clomid with irregular periods!  Thanks!

Thank you for your response.  It is so hard not to get so bogged down in all the details of this.  I have never thought about one thing so much!  How long do you think I should wait before I take another HPT?

Thank you for praying for me!  That is the thing that is so confusing for me...I don't have a regular cycle.  My Dr. told me to base everything on a 28 day cycle because I have to take progesterone to be able to start my period each month.  I usually wait a few days after 30 days, then take a HPT, then start taking progesterone...but this is my first month to take the clomid and get my progesterone level taken!!  I KNOW that this will all come together for good, but it can be so nerve racking!
