hello... can anyone shed any light? i have pco and have been ttc for 5 years. i am in my first cycle of clomid (day 14) and had a scan today. They said i have 3 big folicles on one ov and one big one on the other....so triplets would be likely! i dont understand fully tho....i thought i ovulated 2 days ago (day 12)...clear, stretchy stuff in pants and pain in ov but the scan showed the folicles so i couldnt have ovulated yet, which is really disappointing as my hubby is away now so no more getting busy! we got busy from day 11, 12 and 13 but am now thinking i may not ovulate as today is 9 days after taking clomid....oh how confusing...i'm giving myself a head ache....oh no...thats clomid!!! anyone have a suggestions for me?! ps have had an ache on the left ov since day 12.....

Hi Attagirl79

I was put on 50gm of Clomid for the first month - had my day 21 blood tests and they said I hadnt ovulated. They have increased my does to 100gm for second month, i'm on day 18 now, had headaches and feeling sickly. But wouldnt say the side affects were any worse that when I was on the 50gm. I'm just hoping it works this time, but havent had any cramps so dont think iv ovulated again?

Hi all, I was wondering whether anyone else has been prescribed 100mg per day of clomid from the offset and what issues it is intended to address. I have a very low amh (4.39 first test; 8.12 second test) but otherwise should be fine. I am little nervous of my consultant and from what I have read this is quite a high dose for the first time round. Any thoughts much appreciated! Thanks

Hi I have started a 6 month course of clomid 50mg days 2 - 6. I have had blurry vision, mood swings, tears, paranoia and even the headaches! I will stick with it and with the support of my husband get through it with hopefully success at the end of it or sooner! I'm am 42 and we have a 6 year old little boy. We would love a brother or sister for him. We had a miscarriage at 8.5 weeks back in Oct 2010 and have been trying ever since. I've tried Fertilaid and Zita West Vitafem but still no pregnancy. Specialist said all is normal with us both ie. tubes clear, bloods normal, sperm count normal so giving clomid a go now. Would love to hear your stories...

I was told that if I got blurry vision when I started taking Clomid I should stop it immediately as it was one of the very severe side-effects.

I have had clomid on three occasions and suffered with side effects each time. I have started clomid yesterday after 4 years (I have been trying on and off for 9 years!!) and spent the whole night with blurry vision and throwing up!! I am hoping that this time clomid will be successful and thought I could meet some great people on here in the same situation as me. Lotsofbabiesplease how did the acupuncture go?? I am thinking of going down that route to help alongside the clomid but was unsure as to go for acupuncture or reflexology as I have heard they are both good.

Hi ladies, I'm new to this forum. I started my first round of chlomid this month days 2-6. I'm currently cd 14 and have tummy pains and a headache. Could this be ovulation. I also had accupuncture today and my therapist said I had a low blood pressure (as I've been feeling dizzy when I stand up) does anyone know if this is one of the ( oh so many) wonderful side effects of chlomid? Me and my partner have been trying for a year in march after tragically losing our baby at 20 weeks. I also have pcos (smallest form) which has only just been noticed. Can anyone give me answers to the above? X

hello this is my first time on this chat and iv never really spoke about this type of thing before but im starting to get really down and was wondering if anyone can shed some light on my problem.
I have pos and have been trying for a baby for nearly 5 years now, i was put on clomid and went for my scans where the nurse said everything was going fantastic (got my hopes up a lil) after finishing first month i kept patient thinking it will happen but now still no baby i ended up getting depression due to the fact i am feeling so down and everyone around me seems to be having babys is it just me should i give up or should i try again? i would be very grateful if anyone could help. thank-you x smile

hi all
This is the first time I have posted a message on any chat page but reading everyone's messages is so comforting. You know you are not alone. Don't know fancy abreviations yet so soz.
I have 1 child. Conceived after 6 months. Have been ttc a second child for 2 years but nothing. Have had NHS checks and all fine except when ovaries scanned there were few follicles. Had AMH test done and results were 17 so according to fertility hospital I am within the 'low ovarian fertility potential' range. This is apparently normal for my age. I am 39.
I wanted to try Clomid but hospital not very keen for me to do this as already ovulating so concultant said not much point. Need to have yet another immunisation injection for Rubella as despite vaccination last year I am still not immune. So frustrating as now have to wait until after xmas to try any treatments. Going to go for IUI i think. Wish IUI was more successful. Don't know why I can't get preggars and feeling really desperate, especially when i see my friends with their second babies. I should be grateful I have 1 child and believe me I am but can't help the same desire for a baby i had befor 1st.

GL excited. As you'll have seen I only started yesterday (50mg) so no successes (or failures grin) yet!

Fingers crossed!

IMEXCITEDN2010 Tue 03-Aug-10 21:20:19

Congratulations on your twins millymolly83. I can't to see if I'm pregnant. I took my first 100mg of clomid on July 21st @ 9 AM. I'm due to start my period on the 8th.... I look forward 2 taking my pg test on Aug 5th. I pray clomis worked for me the 1st time... Because my body is playing some cruel tricks on me if I'm not pg. (confused)

IMEXCITEDN2010 Tue 03-Aug-10 21:11:12

I see that some of these messages are from 2008 & 2009... Do any of you have any updated success stories?

IMEXCITEDN2010 Tue 03-Aug-10 21:09:35

Keep your head up ladies

Just swallowed tablet number 1....!

Hi ladies, sooo pleased I've found this thread! I'm currently on month 3 of Clomid ttc no. 2 with no success so far so it's great to find like minded ladies- fingers crossed for all of us.

I'm currently taking 50mg and my GP said it's my choice whether I want to up the dose next month to 75mg confused I've only had one blood test since starting Clomid which showed my progesterone had gone from 2 to 16 (on day 23 of a 31 day cycle so I may have missed my peak level). GP says I must therefore be ovulating.

Has anyone else been left to make that decision on their own? I'm scared of taking 50mg for the full 6 months with no monitoring and not make the most of our chances, so would really appreciate any advice or experience. Thanks.

Evening ladies,

Been lurking and have decided to post as off to fertility doc on Tuesday to be jump started on Clomid.

Came off the pill in March and haven't had a period since my withdrawal bleed. Blood tests normal. Weight, body hair etc, normal but scan showed I have PCO.

Fingers crossed. Interesting hearing the experiences on here. Just desperate to get started productively!

Hi,

I just had an ultrasound on CD 11 after 50mg of Clomiphene. I discovered I had PCOS. At CD 11 I have a follicle of 8mm on one and 10mm on the other. Any chance that the 10mm might mature? I should ovulate on Day 17 if I do. Just wondering if anyone has any good news stories about Clomid and PCOS.

Thanks

Dolly99 Tue 29-Jun-10 22:51:17

i wish you all the luck! just get busy lots, stay chilled, and be happy! x

confu3ed Tue 29-Jun-10 19:13:46

I am not surprised you must be in a complete state if shock but so happy, all those months of hell over at last!!! And will keep you posted got a few weeks before I can start them, so hope I have the luck you have had!

Dolly99 Tue 29-Jun-10 17:24:12

thats what we had - them for 3 months and to get busy!

well keep me posted, im very excited to hear how things go for you! remember the side effects are for a good reason!

must admit im freaking out now!

confu3ed Tue 29-Jun-10 15:45:11

Dolly99 that is amazing congratulations!!! I hope I am that lucky got put on the same dose as you for three months the doc told us to go away get busy and good luck!

My periods are fine generally regular so not been given anything else, just want to get period now so I can start especially now I have heard a great success story!!!

laurielou Tue 29-Jun-10 14:45:06

Dolly Thats fantastic news!!! Many congratulations!

Dolly99 Tue 29-Jun-10 12:57:59

confu3ed the test was positive!!!! first go on 50 and it worked! any advise shout! but the drug is a wonder! before it i ovuilated at 16.5 - day 21 blood tests shows i ovulated at 110!!!!! twins are a posibility with levels that high. what days are you taking this? we literally had sex everyday after i stopped bleeding! or at least every other. enjoy!

are you taking provera to induce bleed or are you periods pretty regular?

confu3ed Mon 28-Jun-10 22:25:38

Hi dolly99 how did the test go?

I had my appointment today and got clomid, just hope it works and the side effects don't put my partner off! I feel so relieved that I might actually be getting somewhere!

Roastie - how are the side effects?

Dolly99 Fri 18-Jun-10 12:51:12

confu3ed - i find it good to talk on here to people who understand, it really helps, as your right noone understands and as millymolly83 rightly says its harder when everyone around you has babies or is pregnant! my sis told me she is excpecting, after the excitement i cried, not thourugh resent for my own sister, but as i thought 'why not me?!' - she was only trying one month too and then got pregnant!

roastie try be positive! its no good for yor body getting stressed so much! clomid is bot as bad as you think - and it gets things on track! which is great! i take a test a week on sat to see if i am pregnant.... eeeeekkk!
