I got spotting for one and half day before periods but I got 2 small blood clot too. Still I didn't get periods. M I pregnt??

Maybe not, but...: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period, or 1 week after getting a "weird" period.

Most likely you did not ovulate. Your doctor will likely want to increase the clomid, (clomiphene) and if it is not working at higher doses, refer you to a fertility doctor. ...Read more
