I have a 2 year old son, and needed help to conceive due to polycystic ovaries - i was given Clomifene.

I don't have a cycle but have been prescribed Provigil for Narcolepsy and was also taking the hormone pill.

I discovered at 19 weeks that I was pregnant.

Due to my earlier problems I did not even consider that I would be pregnant.

When we looked into things after, the pill combined with Provigil makes it easier to conceive whick certainly seems to be the case with me.

I would advise other forms of contraception if this is an issue.
