Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

In patients with irregular cycles that is related to either absent or irregular ovulation, it is not uncommon to have to use progesterone to induce a cycle, and clomid to induce ovulation. The usual method is as follows:

1. The start of your cycle is day#1
2. You take clomid on days 5-9
3. You time intercourse on days 10-16
4. You can track if and when you ovulate with over-the-counter ovulation kits

As far as I can tell, the Folgel is a supplement that has little effect on your cycle. The use of the ultrasound to assess your ovaries and follicles is useful, but not necessary during the first three months on clomid.

I hope that this helps. If you have more questions, please click on "ASK ME A QUESTION" link above to directly ask me a question!
