    Default Clomid did not work years ago...will it work now?

    Over 6 years ago, I was on Clomid 50 and then 100mg for 3 cycles. (Also, metformin 500mg XR, provera & progesterone) Nothing happened. I got a period, but I never ovulated.

    Recently, my doctor moved my Metformin up to 1700mg to try and bring periods back naturally. I'm wondering if my periods do come back on their own..does Clomid at a higher dose have a chance of working? My GYN says no, if it didn't work before it won't now..but if my hormones were still out of whack enough to not give me a period w/o provera..isn't there a chance if my period comes back on it's own that they were back in line?

    Just wondering if anyone had lukc on Clomid after being off it for a while.

    With years going by and a change in meds (with the met) then yeah it might work. There's no way to know until you try. How did they monitor before? U/s until cd20? How did they confirm no O? Labwork on cd35?

    Met works synergystically, it gives you a better chance of responding to clomid. That's why they're prescribed together so often. If you don't ovulate naturally ever, it's not likely that met alone will make you start, but your chances of ovulating are better on both than on clomid alone.

    I suggest you consult an RE, since your OB appears pretty much clueless about fertility.
