How many medicated cycles generally before you have to take a break?

thanks for the responses....i'll have to talk further with my RE about what he's thinking if this next cycle doesn't work.
Even if he doesn't recommend a break I may take one for a cycle or two...one of my worries (and I want to go talk with my PCP) is that on one hand I'm being told with the newly diagnosed blood clotting disorder (and an abnormal additional result for anticardiolipins) that I'll never be put on birth control or estrogen replacement b/c of the clotting risk. But then the meds they're now prescribing me carry an enhanced clotting risk (esp the progesterone) so I'm not necessarily comfortable doing endless medicated cycles without a break even if my ovaries held up for them.
IDK, need to think about it some more and maybe get a less pregnancy/TTC-focused opinion from my PCP, since to date the only doctors involved in the clotting issues have been OBs/REs.
