I’ll be continuing clomid the next month if no good news happens. My appointment with my gyn is on may. I really hope clomid works this month. I have a regular cycle of 29-31 days.
I was told by one of the specialist of medhelp that if I am sure I am ovulating the next step is to check to be sure that the fallopian tubes are open. I am so scared to hear this.. i don understand why my gyn not upping my clomid dose as it didn't work the last three month.

I'm 5 9 and 340 pounds now, i lost 40 pounds since sep/08 I am on 850mg of metformin twice a day and now my ovulations seem strong. took almost 6 months and 40 pounds.

I think you might need stronger clomid or move on to injectables.

How tall are you? has your doctor suggested losing weight to help getting pregnant? Sometimes by losing 10% of body weight will help ovulation. Maybe you need a stronger dose of clomid?
