Hello I am new to this board. I jus finally found out I have PCOS. Me an my husband have been ttc for 4 years an nothing has happened I finally found a doc that would help rather then pass me on to the next doc with no explanation. We are both 24 an both generally healthy. My doc put me on progestrone pills for 14 days to force a period and then clomid on cd5 for 5 days. So my question to u ladys is, I am now on day 6 with my progestrone pills I started spotting wednesday an then again on thursday and then yesterday it was more an threw rhe morning so I called the doc he wasn't concerned only cause it was spotting but today it has gone full force an I am now using tampons for it. So can I stop the progestrone early and start my clomid in 4 days? Or do I have to finish the progestrone even tho I am now on a period?

hi TTC
i just went thru that last cycle dr. told me to confirm i was not preg. and then stop progestrone and let your period come.
i orignally took progestrone low dose so my period just came normal in september i was on 100mg supository and dr thought i ws gonna have to stop taking if not preg to get a period but this time my luteal phase hit 15 days and i started least the good news my luteal phase is getting normal orignally it was 12-13 days long.
