How long should I take duphaston and clomid?

User Profile
Hi Doctor, how are you? I’m 33 years old and trying to get pregnant for the past 5 years. I have a daughter she is 8 years old now. My diagnosis is polycystic ovarian disease (pcod). I went to doctor three months ago he gave me clomid 200 mg and duphaston. I’m taking clomid from day 5 of periods for 5 days and duphaston 10mg from day 16 for 10 days for the past 3 months, is this effective? How long should I take duphaston and clomid? I took my last clomid dose on 14th march. Till now I did not have my periods and my pregnancy test is negative. I really wanted to get pregnant. Would you please help me? Thanks

Thank you for asking

I read your question and i understand your concern. Polycistic ovaries are a challenge to get pregnant and clomid and duphestone alone are not enough. You need to consider losing weight and ADA diet as these two diet and lifestyle modifications are baseline and with out these medications wont suffice. Also take vitamin supplements and and have your hormonal profile assessed. Stay in touch with a fertility expert for further guidance.

I hope it helps . Consult your doctor as our advice is just for education purposes only.
