I started taking Clomid 50g a day about 3 weeks ago. I have PCOS and havent menstuated in about 8 years. Now im almost 30, id really like my boyfriend and i to be able to have a family.. But since my family GP doesn't even know I am taking Clomid i can't ask him questions like;
>how long is a typical clomid cycle?
>how long should i take a break from it? (and should i have a period in this time?
>should i be taking more than a 50g tablet a day?
You need to be monitored while on clomid. If you were to take it while you had a cyst from the pcos you could need emergent surgery possibly resulting in the loss of one or both ovaries. Plus you do need to be taking something like provera to bring on a period or the clomid is pointless. A simple ultrasound on day 2 of your period is done to determine if you have cysts or not.
