    Clomid first timer....help

    After my D&C this summer I never got a period?which was no shocker because I never really got one all year to begin with. So early Oct. I had another procedure done and some leftover stuff was found and removed.... and the doc put me on estrogen and progesterone to thicken my lining?.then last week when I finished the 30 day regimen I got the "induced" period and today is day 10 of that cycle?.

    I doubt a real period will ever come so my doc told me to start clomid tonight and we will see what happens.


    So I take 5 days of the clomid then he gave me estrogen to take after the 5th day. Then on day 10 of this new regimen I have an appt with him on Dec 9th so he can take a look at my follicles via ultrasound.
    I am calling my doc tomorrow because I am confused on what to do and when he explained the first time I was overwhelmed...?.so I thought hearing first hand from someone who has been there would be best.



    Do we start "trying" after the doc sees me or right after the clomid pills?

    When I went through that type of Chlomid/Estrogen cycle my doc just told me to have sex every other day. Good luck.
