Correct diagnosis?: Not all ovulatory problems are appropriately treated with clomid (clomiphene), (clomiphene) so best be sure it's the right drug for the problem. Many women are also "clomid (clomiphene) resistant" and may need even higher doses; in some cases of Insulin resistance treating with metformin simultaneously may improve response to clomid (clomiphene).
