    Default 2 periods back to back - just started clomid

    Can anyone help?
    I have just started My first round of clomid and have finished 5 days of taking it. My doctor told me to start it on day 1 and finish it on day 5. My period was fairly light for first 5 days ( light for me anyway). I thought it was coming to an end on day 5 as hardly anything but today day 6 it seems to have started again and is now heavy plus the usual cramp.

    It is like I have a whole new period.
    i am due to have day 21 progesterone blood test this month and now am not sure whether this will affect when I should have that??? Can anyone give me any advice? Is this normal when starting clomid ?
    I guess I need to speak to my doctor about it but wondered if anyone else had experienced something similar.

    Not sure that would be because of the Clomid - were the first 5 days heavy enough to require some sort of protection (tampon, pad)?

    Also, be wary about a CD21 blood test. If you don't ovulate on CD14, your doctor will likely tell you that the cycle is a bust. That test needs to be drawn 7dpo, and many women here ovulate later on Clomid, somewhere in the CD18-24 range. What many of us do is BBT temp/chart, and then call the doctor when we ovulate to schedule the "CD21" test - even if it ends up being on CD35.

    I'm not sure what it is you're looking for but I think you want to know why you still have cysts? Are you sure that you do? If you're cycling regularly, those are probably follicles and are healthy. It's normal for your body to grow follicles each month because that's what causes you to ovulate. Follicles and cysts look exactly the same on an ultrasound. If you want to confirm that you're ovulating, please search around the board for threads about BBT or "temping". That's the best way to find out if ovulation is occurring.
