    Hi ladies,

    I got to know that I have PCO last Aug when I tried to conceive and it was unsuccessful. Went to a clinic to seek for doc's advice. He put me on metformin for 30 days. After day 15 of taking metformin, I really got stressed out as I don't feel any changes in my body. I don't even experienced any cramps which I used to have sometime right before my period starts. This time I went to see a obgyn specialist doc. He told me the metformin dosage that the other doctor advised is very low and its not gonna help in any way. Then the obgyn, put me on Duphaston for 5 days for period to come. And after getting my period, starting from day 2 of period, he asked me to take clomid for 5 days from period day 2 to induce ovulation and production of egg. The obgyn told me to visit him on day 10 from the day I started to take Clomid for scanning to see if there's an egg. There was one egg seen but it was not matured enough to be released. The obgyn doc told me to come back in another 6 days to scan again to see if the egg is big enough to be released. When visiting the obgyn doc 6 days later, there was one huge matured egg which is ready for ovulation. Then the doc induced Ovidrel to ensure the egg to release from follicles. He also told me to have sex on the same day and the next day. It's been 8 days since I had tried to conceive. I know it's too early to test for pregnancy. Im having cramps lately but not sure if its implantation cramps or menstruation cramps. Just thought of, what if im not pregnant. Do I need to repeat doing what doctor has advised me (take duphaston for period to come and take clomid for 5 days starting from day 2 of period) and try it out again? Please someone help me.....

    Hiya and welcome.

    I also have pcos. If you have ovulated and not fallen pregnant then you will have a bleed by yourself without it being induced. They will probably then let you take more clomid for another try. I did 7 rounds of clomid before getting my positive pregnancy test. I had loads of cramps with my 7th cycle which I think must have been implantation so yours could be too! Good luck and let us know how you get on. If you go in the long term section there is a clomid thread running with all the ladies who are currently taking clomid on if you would like to join :)
