Anyway just wanted to wish you all well with TTC on clomid, i have 2 beautiful babies through Clomid, 1x boy who is 2.5yr old, and 1x girl who is almost 14 months. My first concieved on 2nd cycle and my girl on the first, we were ttc for 2 yrs before falling preg.
It does happen, stay stong and dont give up xxx
Hi Elo09, try to stay positive, you still have another couple of months before hubby goes away I think don't you? I'm on my first cycle of clomid this time and while I am desperately hoping this is the month I'm not expecting to conceive on the first go. A BFN will always make you feel rubbish, stay strong and try not to give up.
I know how you feel. My sister keeps saying things like "when you have a baby you'll this and you'll that". I know she is trying to be positive for me but I just want to scream "what baby and when am I having it!!!". People who are not experiencing it just have no idea what it's like!
Went for a day 19 scan today and it showed the two follicles still there so no ovulation this month. But I got a positive OPK on day 13...confused.com - anyone have any experience with that?
Nurse said that one of the follicles looked like it was deflating today so I might be ovulating today/tomorrow but my cycle is normally 28 days so I am totally confused...

Hi - noticed this thread when found this site when searching for something else and felt had to post - I have two children 7 and nearly 4. I was diagnosed 2002 with PCOS when came off pill and no periods gave cause for alarm and had ultrasound. I did have 6 cycles of clomid which did give me some of the side effects mentioned including bad dreams - it did not work for me initially tho who knows why. For those of you with PCOS you wil prob know that it is linked with diabetes and insulin resistance. For that reason a drug called metformin is also often used to induce ovulation as it can have a postiive effect on insulin/glucose balance and therefore ovulation - i conceived within a few months after trying for a baby for 18months and this was once had finished 6 months cycle of clomid ! I took it with no clomid when I wanted to get pregnant again with my daughter and was preg in 3 months!!! None of you have mentioned this on here particularly those with PCOS, whilst the drug isnt "licenced" for fertility it is used widely and there are plenty of studies about it - one exert is as below from the following website - just do some other googling to get more info - there is a lot of evidence and if your docs are not discussing this option with you then raise it with them xxxx
A large metaanalysis concluded that monotherapy with metformin is significantly more effective than placebo at improving the ovulation rate in women with PCOS. More recently, a Cochrane review concluded that although clomifene is more effective at improving ovulation rates than metformin, adding metformin to clomifene therapy significantly improves ovulation rates, particularly in clomifene-resistant patients.
Very low day 21 progesterone results (even lower than the month when I wasn't taking anything). So, dose is upped to 100mg now and started to take it yesterday.
The thing I am really struggling with is the time out of work to attend scans, my boss isn't fully aware of what's going on - she knows it's a gynae problem. I am trying for promotion so I don't want to be announcing my intention to get pregnant.
How does everyone else cope with the time out from work? What are you telling your bosses?
Elo09, did you have side effects the first time?
Good luck and lots of babydust. Stay positive everyone - maybe this will be our month!
I'm due tomorrow to start my first cycle of clomid, feeling slightly nervous about it and I'm not sure why! I am going to take it just before I go to bed and see if I can avoid the worst of the side effects.
Good Luck everybody xxxxx
Good luck Rosapenny!
Elo09 they will check my levels and do three or so ultrasounds for each cycle until they have proved that ovulation took place. When they're happy it's working I'll be off on my own for a couple of months.
I didn't ovulate on 50mg so the dose is increased this time
Can you get your day 21 bloods done somewhere different from your normal hospital so you know if it worked?
