late on clomid

I was 6 days late on clomid, my periods use to be regular from january. does this mean its going back to being irregular? As per my previous mail about secondary infertility. My gynae checked my tubes, its all clear, all seems in order. He has now doubled my clomid and i am going for a progesterone blood test in 20 days time.?He wants to put me on clomid 100mg for six more months, all in all that would be 9 months on clomid? Is this advisable?

Dear Tash

At this point it is reasonable to increase the clomid dosage, but I would recommend that ovulation monitoring by means of ultrasound scanning should be now considered. The use of high dose clomid is associated with multiple cyst formation and may prove to be hazardous if used repeatedly. Also the ultrasound scanning may assist in timing ovulation more accurately and also perhaps be coupled with intra-uterine insemination procedures.
