High estrodial/low progesterone TCC on clomid

I am new here - this is my first post. I'm a mess.  I went for my first fertility appt. about a week ago and had the ultrasound on my uterus and ovaries where everything looked fine.  My labs were normal except for very high estrodial (116) and low estrogen (4.6 I think it was) for my last months cycle. FSH was normal.  I have an irregular cycle and the doc says I am most likely not ovulating.  My dr. is having me take Clomid on days 5-9 of my cycle for the challenge test.  I am so worried about my lab results and what it might mean if they don't come out normal after this test, and really freaking out about the thought that my eggs aren't healthy enough, which she said might be the problem if the challenge test doesn't come out with normal results.  I am 33 yrs old and have been TCC for over a year now.  Has anyone or does anyone know about high estrodial levels and how they react to the clomid?  Is this something that is typically resolved with Clomid or is this more a step I need to go through in order to get to "level 2" of infertility (my hospital has levels - right now im level 1 and level 3 is IVF).  Any advice/support would help so much!
