Am I taking the right treatment to conceive ?

Hi I’m a 27 year old female. I was diagnosed with PCOS in May 2009. My Dr gave me birth control to help me regulate my period and she said that would also help dissolve the cyst in my ovaries. I was supposed to take the b/c for 6 months but decided on my own to take them longer. I stop b/c in an began TTC in June 2010 and started taking metformin 500mg 2x/day as well. I’ve had periods every month after stopping the b/c, some months just spotting others a full force period. My Dr has had me do blood work, progesterone cd21 these past two months, the last month was very low at .5 both months showing no ovulation . How accurate are the 21 day progesterone test since I’m not on a regular 28 Day cycle? Also I have begun my first round of clomid 50mg cd 5-9. I am being guided on the right track to conceive?
