Customer Question

Hi I am concerned there is something wrong. I have been taking clomide and am now 5 days Kate on my period, I have had unexplained infertility for the past 3 years. I have very sore nipples that are nearly always erect, and have had large deposits of clear jelly like discharge with a small amount dark blood and have been spotting for the past 2 days. This is the first time this has ever happened but I have 3 negative pregnancy tests. Pro you think there could be something wrong with me?

Dr Owen :

hello

Dr Owen :

Well given what you have said - I think you might have what is known as PCOS - Polycystic ovarian syndrome - and beside using clomid - another medication to start using would be Metformin (also known as glucophage).

Dr Owen :

hi

JACUSTOMER-c19zoanc- : What is this it's driving me stir crazy
JACUSTOMER-c19zoanc- : I really though I might be pregnant
Dr Owen :

PCOS - it is essentially where your body produces too much estrogen then this gets converted to estrone which then turns to Testosterone which then increases your Insulin levels (but your Sugar / glucose is NORMAL) and hence this causes you to Not ovulate without some help

Dr Owen :

so hence to help you ovulate besides the USE of clomid - we use Metformin 1500mg per day

JACUSTOMER-c19zoanc- : Ok. So you don't think in this instance I could be pregnant. I have had ovulation tests that have come back all normal and they just put me on clomide 50mg days 5-9 to see if it changed anything
Dr Owen :

if the pregnancy test is negative - it is unlikely you are pregnant - but do recheck the test in 4 to 5 days and if still not positive, then you are definitely not pregnant at that point.

Dr Owen :

Clomid of 50mg is really not going to help anything either

Dr Owen :

you should be using Metformin PLUS clomid - but the clomid dose is 100mg, not 50mg to see any good results

JACUSTOMER-c19zoanc- : Really? This is my first cycle and I have never been late in my life and everything just seems so abnormal
Dr Owen :

okay - but you STATED you have 3 years of infertility

Dr Owen :

so hence this is why I am stating what I have

JACUSTOMER-c19zoanc- : Yes I do but doctors just keep saying there is nothing wrong. They only put me on clomide to shut me up. I'll try the meteor min and will double my dose
Dr Owen :

okay -

Dr Owen :

I wish you well - and really discuss the Metformin too - that should also be helpful

Dr Owen :

I wish you well

Dr Owen :

Dr Owen :

JACUSTOMER-c19zoanc- : Thank you

Dr Owen :

Dr Owen :

Dr Owen :
