That's brilliant news Dannii21. You must be very pleased
I've got pretty sharp pains in my side since I've been taking it (on the side where I have an ovary) has anyone else had discomfort while taking it - what does it mean?
Fingers crossed! Looking forward to doing an OPK this month and hopefully getting a positive result! I am going in for a scan on Thursday (day 12) to look for ripening folicles, worried/frightened/excited!
Oh Dudders, really sorry you have not had good news.Can I ask why you have to go private? I looked back to your first post in this thread and you don't mention the reason why.
Thinking good thoughts and wishing you luck for Friday
That's really unfair Dannii21, so sorry for you. Wishing you luck for the next cycle
Absolutely understand the wait is so frustrating.My GP sent me away and she said "You have age on your side" - I'm 25. I have always been worried I would have problems as I had an ovary removed for an enormous cyst several years ago and it very likely left scarring on the remaining ovary. I paid for me and the hubby to have our first tests - SA and day 21 done privately and then the GP made the referral with those as my day 21 showed absolutely zero activity but without our private tests we would have needed to wait another year for a referral (shocking).
I think it is really strange that your GP is making such a huge leap straight to IVF. In any case the GP would need to refer you to your local fertility clinic and they would make the decision about IVF or other options not the GP. I think to go straight in and say "Oh It'll need to be IVF" is jumping to conclusions. In my limited experience GPs really don't know very much about this and you need to speak to the experts. I get very frustrated when GPs seem unable to recognise their own limitations, the money to meet with a consultant quickly is a small price to pay for answers and expertise.
I hope your hubby's results are nothing to worry about. If he has good motility and good numbers that is a positive thing and hopefully there'll be some strong swimmers in there who'll make it! I used the World Health Organisation's "reference values for human semen document" to decipher hubby's results and it was different to that of the NHS (But I reckon the WHO is the most accurate).
Luckilly for us hubby is fine - it's just me who has the problem.
Hoping you have some good news soon and get the answers you need.
I have my day 12 follicle tracking scan tomorrow and feeling very anxious. Fingers crossed.
Thinking positive thoughts for you
One ripened follicle and one half cooked but with potential. Negative result on OPK though... Not sure what to think
aww thanks hun and good luck xx
We are going to start on our Clomid this month. I am 39 and have pcos which has just been diagnosed. I have regular periods but just don't ovulate. Am keeping everything crossed that the scan after I've started taking the Clomid, shows that everything is reacting as it should and that I will ovulate. The hospital have been brilliant but I just get frustrated about waiting.......
This thread has been really helpful as it's good to hear about other people's experiences.
Def ov on Friday as I had really terrible pain much worse than I was expecting. Think it's because clomid causes biggers follicles with more fluid in them than normal so it causes more discomfort when they rupture. I went to the gym on Friday morning and did lots of twisting and turning and that seemed to encourage ov so will be doing that every month lol. Got a positive on my OPK so now just in the 2ww to see if it's worked.
Thanks Andi30xx, I really hope it is too. Fingers crossed for you too.
Dudders, how are you getting on? Have you got your appt with the consultant booked in yet?
Danii, I really hope this is the round for the you and you get your BFP, fingers crossed for you
Hi Ekjsmith, glad you've found the thread useful. I've not been following it for very long either but I've found it really reassuring and very useful. When do you start your clomid?
Rosapenny, good luck and hope this is your lucky cycle
