Brief Answer:
IVF cycle can be started later

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

I have read you query and I understand your concerns about delayed periods.

Following is my reply:

1) Though you have taken duphaston, that may not have been enough for you.

2) Your hormonal profile may be different from others. You are likely to need an estrogen tablet along with duphaston.

3) Please wait for cycle to start spontaneously and IVF can be started after cycle starts as taking more medicines at this stage is going to add to confusion.

4) If no periods in next 15 days, request your doctor for combination of estradiol and progesterone tablets for periods to start on time.

I hope I answered you query and addressed your concerns.

Let me know if you wish to ask any further questions. I will be glad to help you.

Thanks doc for the reply ..
Currently I have breast tenderness,swollen and pain and feel discomfort in my abdomen sometimes .All these symptoms are because of duphaston or pre periods symptoms...due to which I bit worried ..please suggest

Brief Answer:
Pre periods more likely

Detailed Answer:

These symptoms are likely to be pre periods. But even Duphaston causes these symptoms and is difficult to differentiate both.

Hi, I am 33 yrs, I have PCOS, hypothyroid and with just one fallopian tube ( Unicornuate uterus on right), and have had 2 miscarriages. I have recently started taking M2tone syrup, but on Clomiphene as per doctor s prescription. Is it safe to take M2tone syrup along with Clomiphene? I live in UK, and here, doctors do not prescribe Progesterone Tablets. While in India, I was given progesterone from Day 20 of my cycle for 5 days. Can I take that, as I suspect, both my 2 miscarriages were due to low progesterone level.
