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.

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.
