Some clearance on the issue

Hi Gynae Doc / Fertility Specialist

I need some advice and imput with this one.
I had my first baby on the 23rd May 2006. I went onto the Petogen injection 11 June 2007. I was supposed to go again the 12th May 2008 but we want to try for a second one.
I saw my gynae on the 21st of May 2008 and he gave me Postoval to drink to bring on my period.
He gave me a repeat script so that If I did not get my period within 28 days that I can start with the second pack.
On the evening of the 17th June my period started (the day I drank my last Postoval pill from the first pack).
I then saw my Gynae (as instructed) the 2nd July 2008 for a Sonar.
He said that my Follicle was 18cm in diameter and that Hubby and I do our thing that night and the next day as well (which we did).
He also gave me a scrip for Clomed so that if I did get my period by the 17th July that I must drink it it from Day 5 to 9 and see him on day 12. He said that If I did not start by the 17th that I go for a blood test the 18th July 2008.
On the afternoon of the 17th July I did a HPT as nothing had happened. It showed a faint positive. I also did one the morning of the 18th July but it showed negative. I went for the blood test and it was also negative. I phoned my Gynae and he said that if there is nothing by Monday that I must phone him again and he will give me a pill to bring it on.
I phoned him on Monday and he gave me a script for Duphaston (hope I spelt it correctly).
I have been drinking the pills since Monday and they should be finished by Friday.
What is worrying me is:
Should I have not started already
What happens if I don'  t when the pills are finished.
I am confused at this stage as I don'  t quite know what is happening as I did ovulate according to the sonar done of the 2 July.
Please advise as I am very concerned as to what if I am pregnant and the pills are maybe doing more damage.
Sorry for the long story but I would rather give you all the info then only half of it.
Kind Regards

Dear Trace

The cause of events and advice given by your gynaecologist is perfectly correct. In addition it may have been a very early pregnancy with a very early spontaneous miscarriage and this has in turn postponed the onset of your menses. It is unlikely even if you are still pregnant that the medication prescribed will cause any harm to your pregnancy or to your baby and therefore I would suggest that you just continue with the expert advice you are getting from your gynaecologist.
