Brief Answer:
No the bleeding is very unlikely to through off the ovulation

Detailed Answer:
HI and Welcome to "Ask a Doctor" service question. Thank you for using this app.I have read your question and here is my advice.
The bleeding may be your normal cycle or a side effect of clomophine, but it's not going to effect your ovulation. Because the ovulation genraly occur 1 to 2 weeks after the start of clomophine.
Infact we generally start clomophine on day 2 of bleeding, ( normal. Menstrual bleeding) so bleeding occurs anyhow dirrunh the few days of taking clomophine. Its very likely that it might be your cycle.
However, if it was even not your cycle, bleeding do some times occur with clomophine, but it is not going to effect your ovulation or its desired effect. You should not XXXXXXX if bleeding is settling. You may consult your doctor if bleeding is too much or not stopping.
Hope this helps you understand the problem, please feel free to ask if you have any further questions or concerns about this.
