    hello I'm Patty

    Hi I'm Patty 30yrs old and have just completed Clomid cycle 3 . I take a preganancy test on 3-5-2011. I have no kids and been married for a year. I started provera for irregular menstral periods and clomid in Oct 2010. All my lab testing was normal. I just don't ovulate. Cycle 2 I believe I had ovulated because i had cramping and my cervical mucous was white, however pregnancy test was a negative
    Susannah D Copland, MD, MS responded:
    Your instincts are right on track. The first goal is ovulation, and cramping and cervical mucus changes can be signs of ovulation. If you do not usually get periods, a spontaneous period after signs of ovulation is another sign that clomid is likely working to achieve ovulation. Other ways to monitor include ovulation predictor kits, or a blood progesterone level one week after you believe you ovulated. If you confirm ovulation but do not conceive, see your doctor to consider additional testing such as a semen analysis and a hysterosalpingogram. Good Luck!
