My husband and I have been trying to conceive for a while and started metformin and clomid last month. It may be wishful thinking but I feel different and am expecting my cycle to start soon. How soon could I take a pregnancy test!? This waiting game is torture!! Anyone been in this situation? How soon did you test with positive results?

I was wondering if anyone else has this problem too. I am about to start my second round of chlomid on saturday and the docs have given me my day 21 blood test results back and i did not ovulate on 1st round! I have been ttc for 1 and half years. I was wondering as i have very irregular periods some not at all, if i could still take my tablets as advised even with no period! And they will still take effect? has anybody got pregnant by doing this? thanks
