I posted this on the trying to conceive board but I thought I would try over here too.
My luteal phase is really short 6-8 days. I called my doctor and left a message for him to call me. The nurse said he would probably prescribe Clomid. I know this drug is prescribed for many different fertility reasons. I saw on line that it is recommended that you have a complete fertilty work up before starting this drug, etc. Anyone here on Clomid that just had it prescribed without a workup? The nurse didn't mention any of that to me, of course I haven't talked to the doctor yet...........I just want to be prepared with all my questions. I know I am ovulating, I just have a short luteal phase............do you still need a complete work-up when that is reason for starting the drug? Anything else I need to know? Thanks!
I didn't have a workup done before I started Clomid. I knew that my ovulation varied widely, and I only had cycles every few months if not on the Pill. My OB started me on Clomid to regulate cycles and induce ovulation. Hope that helps!
I am on my 2nd of Clomid. I went through the "work up" before I got mine. I had bloodwork, u/s's, and exams. I was perscribed it because I was having AF but maybe a few times a year and sometimes less. I was dxed with PCOS and anovulation. I am going to move onto cycle #3 as soon as AF comes. It looks like its going to be the higher doses for me. So, yes I had the work up. Also it is recommended that you have regular monitoring done while on Clomid. I am sure that your doctor will do what is best for you. GOOD LUCK! Keep us posted on what he says!!
