Help please, have some concerns
Dear GynaeDoc,

I had a MC and D&C in June '04. I was 8 weeks pregnant and my HCG levels were very low (528 i think). After the MC my periods were very irregular (cycles of 43 days and 52 days, etc) for 3 months. I went to see my Dr and he prescribed Clomid in October '04. I went for a scan on day 12 and there was one egg. However, i did not fall pregnant in Oct. In Nov '04 i went on Clomid again and he did a scan on day 13. Once again there was only one big egg. He gave me an injection (Profasie injection). I did a Blood test on 21 Dec and it was negative. The Dr did say that if i'm not pregnant this month, we must get my husband tested.

My concern is that i'm still waiting for my period to arrive. I'm having cramps and i'm on day 47 already. I did a HPT test this morning which was negative. Please tell me what you think of this. Thanks.

It sounds like you are not ovulating. If the Clomid has not succeded in getting you to ovulate, then you may need a higher dose or a different medication.
