I have been trying to fall pregnant for 8 months now. I have been prescribed some fertility tablets and of late I was prescribed some clomid tablets the past two months. Having taken those tables my period length shifted from 28 days to 38 days of which in that period I did not ovulate and even after stoping the tablet. Can this be normal or not? What best can you advise. One thing is I have tried researching on all the tablets I have been taking. They have some side effects like cyst oand so forth. Please help

Dear Worried
It is generally not normal for your period to change from 28 days to 38 days on Clomid tablets. Clomid should generally only be used if you need to time a cycle using artificial insemination or if you generally have an ovulatory problem. If you have regular periods and have been ovulating before without the use of clomid then it is unusual that the clomid will prevent you from ovulating. My advice is that you use clomid under a gynaecologist care were he can assess under serial ultrasound whether a follicle is developing and whether ovulation is taking place.

Hi there,

What is the normal size of an ovary before ovulating?
