Normally to induce ovulation Clomid(Clomifene) will be kept by the doctors.
Upto 6 cycles it can be tried. But with larger doses and long periods complications like over-stimulation can occur.
You didn't mentioned your height and weight, what was the reason diagnosed for your irregular periods?
One possible cause may be having 'poly cystic ovarian syndrome'.
In this case periods will become irregular and an-ovulation can be there.
Even with the usage of clomifene these people will not respond properly until the hyperinsulinaemia is treated with insulin sensitizers like metformin.
If you post the complete details of your periods and previous treatment, I can suggest you.
take care

welcome to healthcaremagic,

i can understand that you have recently started treatment for conception.

clomid is the first line treatment for ovulation induction.

there is a wide array of treatment options available and followed in a particular order by different gynecologist.

Clomid, Metformin, Femera, or Follicle Stimulating Hormones which either administered individually or in combinations can help induce ovulation.

Invasive procedure such as intra uterine insemination (IUI), in vitro fertilization (IVF) may follow. However, this is generally regarded as a last resort.

may god bless you
take care.
