Our expert says:
A progesterone level of a 120 indicates that ovulation has taken place, this is a reasonably high level and this is often seen when multiple follicles are developing and this usually occurs with the use of Clomid. If you have ovulated first time on clomid this usually indicates that you are responding well to it and that in your particular case would increase your chances of conceiving, as you are not ovulating naturally too well. Patients with a problem of insulin resistance and polycystic ovarian syndrome do have a higher chance of miscarriage but this is not exceptionally high. Your chances of falling pregnant providing your fallopian tubes are patent and there are no other problems such as endometriosis then your chances of falling pregnant within 6 months is in excess of 50%. If your doctor has ruled out the condition of polycystic ovarian syndrome then in your particular case you do not run a higher than normal risk of miscarriage. I think your doctor is taking a very wise and prudent approach as he is first trying to correct the problem of ovulation and giving you a chance to see if you can conceive naturally with Clomid, and at a later stage if nothing happens then further investigations would be required.
