I have a very long 40+ days cycle that is also very irregular, currently at 46 days and am trying to conceive second baby. this is longest cycle this year but have no pregnancy symptoms so don't want to get my hopes up - any advice on how to manage this? Is clomid the answer?

I would pay a visit to the doctor and talk to this person about your irregular periods. This is often caused by hormonal problems. Your GP may want to do a blood test to see what your hormone levels are like. A common cause of such problems is a condition called polycystic ovaries, your thyroid function should be tested as well to make sure this is not the cause. That can also be done through bloods.

Clomid may or may not be helpful; it is not suitable for all patients to take.

I would also look into getting a gynae referral - you need a diagnosis first and foremost. Treatment ideally should be done under gynae superivistion as such problems are often outside a GPs remit and they don't also have enough time to monitor you properly.
