Our expert says:
The symptoms that you describe may not necessarily be specific to pregnancy but also may occur in case of significant hormone imbalance. The excessive use of Clomid, as in this case, may be related to the formation of a number of ovarian cysts and abnormal hormone environment as a result of this. The possibility of follicular cysts producing estrogen in the absence of ovulation is a serious consideration. Alternately the entity called persistent luteal function may also be associated with such symptoms and often very high progesterone levels may be noted if a blood test were to be done. My advice would be to have a pelvic ultrasound scan done at this stage to assist in the diagnosis and to confirm the presence or absence of such cysts. I would also advise for the next 2 to 3 months at least, no Clomid or equivalent preparations should be used and a more detailed investigation as to the cause of your fertility problem should be undertaken before embarking on any further ovulation induction.
