Anyone took bcp before going on clomid?

My ob wants me to take 2 months of bcp before trying clomid because she thinks this will reset my ovaries and regulate my period since my period cycle is pretty long and irregular; ranging from like maybe 55 days and 90 days. I was wondering if anyone have similar experience and was able to get BFP. And also how long after coming off of bcp would I be able to start clomid? Would I be able to use the period that was induced from bcp on the second month and start clomid on CD5-9?

Any advice or answers would be great!

Thank you!! Razz Razz kiss kiss

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Your doctor is right. Getting pregnant is at least 6 to 8 months away if you start compliance today both with pills and diet lifestyle and lose weight. So yes delay taking clomid in a first few cycles and start after a few months use of oral contraceptives.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
