Hello! I have been TTC since September 2017, but I didn't get diagnosed with PCOS until later. I am currently on my second cycle with Clomid. My period has been longer than usual this time around. I'm worried that perhaps I did get pregnant last cycle and am now miscarrying. Normally I take progesterone for 10 days each month to begin my next cycle. My OB/GYN told me that I should keep taking the progesterone like I normally do even though I'm using Clomid and TTC, but I'm wondering if the drop in progesterone that normally signals AF to begin is now causing me to lose any baby that may have been conceived.

Anyone in a similar situation? Can anyone tell me whether they think this treatment sounds like it will work, or if I should pursue other treatments?


Thanks for any help or reassurance you can give!

Heya, I am a mother of two and i also had the same situationafter taking clomid for PCOS. But i was not on any progesterone pills. I wasdiagnosed with PCOS 4 years back and was also put on medications like clomid.This is usually given for females who do not ovulate regularly or in case ofthe irregular menstrual cycles especially in cases of poly cystic ovariandiseases. I was also given HCG injections along with these tablets to conceive.After taking this medicine, my periods were prolonged and some times had heavybleeding too. My doctor here in KIEV said i may take few days to adjust to thedose. Then after two months, i started getting regular periods on time andnormal for 5 days. As she also had put me on HCG injections once in a month, iconceived after 6 months of the regular treatment. I delivered twins through Csection. So you do not worry, your doc is in the right way.
Follow your doctor advice without doubting theircapabilities or success. Each female differs from the other, so are thetreatment and the success rates. I have also see the females conceiving within3 months of the treatment and some after a year of treatment. So do not losehope and keep faith in them. They will do the best possible treatment for you.Longer periods can be due to PCOS also. It is the irregularity between thechanges which is quite common in PCOS cases. So take the medicines as per theiradvice. Even though you go to a new doctor, they may again start from thebeginning which again may delay the treatment duration.

The good news is that the chance of getting pregnant with PCOS using fertility treatments is quite good. You should take proper check-up before pursuing any treatment. Good Luck.
