Trueimagev2014: I got one period following a cycle where I didn’t ovulate at all, but generally, if there’s no ovulation, there’s usually no period. My cycle after that annovulatory cycle ended up being almost 3 months long, so I didn’t get a period between October and January – I think I ovulated on cycle day 67 and then got my period on cycle day 80. That ended up being cycle day 1 of the cycle I did Clomid and got pregnant on my first shot.
I definitely recommend charting to see where your body’s at before you start Clomid, but if you’re not getting a period, it’s probably safe to say you’re not ovulating.

AIBHLINSHANA: I have PCOS and had irregular cycles and wasn’t ovulating. We tried for about 6 months before going to Clomid. We were successful on the 2nd round taking 50mg cycle days 3-7. I’m 12 weeks along and everything looks great and only 1 baby in there even though twins do run in my family. The first round they did monitored so I got an ultrasound at cycle day 14 to make sure it was working and it was so they kept me on the day dosage for the second month too.
I didn’t read the other comments so someone else may have mentioned this already, but I think the 10% risk of multiples is really high. I only remember reading that it was somewhere around 3 or 4%. Make sure you look at multiple sources if that is going to be a deal breaker for you.

AIBHLINSHANA: Lucky me got all the side effects and no pregnancy while on Clomid. I was a total cow as well. BUT 3 cycles after (we’d given up on the idea of falling pregnant since Clomid failed) I got my BFP! So at the very least Clomid kick-started my cycle. I probably wouldn’t go there if I was ovulating unless I wanted twins though.
