PCOS, Duphaston & Clomid
I was diagnosed with PCOS. Haven't had a period in 3 months. Gynae prescribed Duphaston for 4 months from day 1 to 10 and Clomid in the 4th month & 10-day scan.

I've taken Duphaston for 7 days now. Apparantly period will start 3 - 5 days after the 10 pills. I would like to know if my periods will return to normal by itself or will I have to start taking the Duphaston on a certain time to regulate my periods for the next 3 months?

Hope someone can help? I'm a bit worried about PCOS and related problems & would love to be pregnant! At least I know why I can't loose weight! I am a frequesnt reader but not a frequest writer & it is an excellent forum! Thank you!

If the Clomid gets you to ovulate, you should have a normal period. Otherwise, you will have to use the Duphaston again.
