Question
I am trying to conceive. My doctor prescribed Duphaston to force a menstrual cycle, and so I could start taking Clomid for ovulation. I am about to start day 4 of Duphaston but woke up this morning with severe cramps. I had some very light spotting last night and this morning, and passed a small amount of fibrous blood. In the past hour since that there hasn't been a menstrual flow as such. Should I keep taking the Duphaston until the end of the 7 day course and then wait for a period before starting the clomid, or can I assume that today is day 1 of my period and therefore I should stop taking Duphaston today and start taking Clomid from day 2 (ie tomorrow)? My doctor told me I should start clomid on day 2 of menses, whenever that occurs. Thank you for your help. I don't know what to do and my doctor isn't contactable on weekends...

Thank you. Is that the case even if i didnt and dont have a proper menstrual flow? What happens if all i get is the spotting and one single time of having a tiny amount of fibrous bloody tissue pass? Is this really still counted as a "cycle"? Enough to start Clomid?

Brief Answer: yes Detailed Answer: Hi Since you are on duphaston still you might have scanty bleeding. But it was fibrous and fleshy which means majority of endometrial tissue has come out with bleeding. So you can start tablets as per doctor's advice on day 2. Regards

Many thanks. I'm sorry to keep asking more questions, as I just wanted to be very sure. Ive been on Duphaston and clomid for four cycles now. and never had these symptoms before. I got pregnant in July 2013 but had a miscarriage in August 2013. It was only about a teaspoon of fibrous blood that came out (at most) this morning. Is that really enough to call it a cycle? There must still be a lot of lining left in my uterous as i hardly bledat all
