Our expert says:
It is best to stop the use of the pill when you see your menstrual period and start a fertility pill from day 4 or day 5 of your cycle. The common fertility pill used is Clomiphene citrate (Clomid, Fertomid, Serophene, etc) which is a 5 day course and the usual starting dose is 50mg per day. You should use an ovulation monitoring kit such as Clearplan or Ovuplan, commencing from day-10 of your cycle as to predict when ovulation is likely to occur and if ovulation is indeed occurring. This will not only increase your chances of conception through timed intercourse but will also benefit you in knowing that you are ovulating or not. Should you not see any changes on the ovulation kit suggesting ovulation then an internal ultrasound scan maybe of great assistance to determine what the response of the ovaries has been and whether future ovulation induction requires a stronger approach.
