clomid and progesterone

I will be starting my 2nd round of clomid 50mg in a few days the doctor wants to see me back for blood work in 21 days. What is he trying to determine? I went off of depo in Feb. Before starting clomid my periods were 13 days apart. 3 of them were like that. Now after clomid it has been 25 days, and I am supposed to start my clomid tomorrow. Will he be able to tell if I am pregnant then.

I have not prescribed Clomid in over 15 years. It is a very old drug, and we have much better products on the market, today. For more information, I invite you to see our web page, <www.texasfertility.com>. He may want bloood on your cycle day 21 to see if your progesterone is elevated. That does not assure ovulation. On Clomid it is fairly common to go through all the hormonal changes of ovulation without releasing the egg.
Good luck.

Letrozol (Femara) blocks the enzyme in the final production of estrogens. It is cleared from the body quickly, unlike Clomid. Clomid blocks estrogen effect at the cellular level, and hangs around for a while. The result, among others, is a thin endometrium.
