User :   Hi, may I answer your health queries right n
Doctor :   Hi,
User :   I am on my first cycle of Clomid as my husband and I have been trying for a baby for several years now. The doctor had mentioned when I had the test I had not ovulated and now I have a late/missed period its 5 days late and I have no spotting only a thin almost clear discharge. I have taken a pregnancy test today and it was negative. Has clomid had a negative effect I thought it was to assist with ovulation and fertility
User :   Are you online Dr as I only have 15 minutes
Doctor :   no , the clomid has no such negative effects
Doctor :   but yes, some times the periods may be delayed by it
User :   Okay this will be confusing, how will I know if I dont yet get pregnant when to expect the next period or when the next ovulation will be to plan for pregnancy
Doctor :   the onset of bleeding is the start of the next cycle
Doctor :   i said it may delayed but not missed
User :   okay understand I will wait for the next few days and observe. From your knowledge if one is on more than one cycle of clomid and there is a delay is that a pattern or can the next cycle be 28 days or 32 in my case
Doctor :   the next will be of your routine average duration
User :   okay thanks
Doctor :   you are wel come
Doctor :   Is there anything i can help you with
User :   Not at present just anxious as I am not sure what is happening at present. I plan to return to the doctor this week if period does not start
Doctor :   yes, that would be advisable
Doctor :   and the delay should be not more than a week
User :   What is the norm with delays with clomid takers
Doctor :   5 to 6 days
User :   okay thanks will log off now and keep checking
Doctor :   you are welcome
Doctor :   Thanks for consulting me
Doctor :   Bye for now
Doctor :   take care
