Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My menstrual cycle is of 25 days. I am trying to conceive and went for a follicular study on the second day of the period. I was prescribed Clomiphene Citrate from the third day for five days later on the 16th day when the size of the follicle was 19 mm. I was given a trigger shot and suggested timed intercourse. When should I get my pregnancy test? I missed my period and when I took the pregnancy test it was negative. Please suggest when to take the pregnancy test. Does Clomiphene Citrate lengthen the cycle length?

Thank you.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through your query and understand your concern.

No Clomiphene Citrate would not affect the menstrual cycle it increases ovulation (egg formation). Earlier kits might show false results. You should do a urine pregnancy test after a week before your due date. Wait for one more week and repeat the test. You can also confirm it by checking blood hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) levels.

I hope your query got resolved.

Please feel free to reach me again, in case of further queries.

Thank you.
