Hi, I have been trying to conceive for about two years now. I went to a gynecologist who gave me Clomid 50mg for 3 months, which didn't help so he raised the dose to 100mg. I have taken 100mg last month but it still didn't work.. I am wondering if it could be progesterone deficiency or hormonal imbalance rather than an ovulation problem. I have very regular cycles (28-29 days) but I also have very painful menstruation for the first 2-3 days and my period usually lasts for 5 days. I always have some brown discharge for 1 or 2 days before the actual "bleeding" starts. I read somewhere that this brown discharge before the bleeding could be linked to progesterone deficiency. However, my gynecologist says it's unlikely because I have regular cycles.. I would like to have a second opinion on this and would really appreciate your feedback. Thanks in advance!View Thread
