Hi moody pebble.. My dh and I tried for over 3 years before we succeeded on our 2nd round of clomid. we had unexplained fertility. it sounds cliche but you just have to believe that it will happen when it is suppose to.. I found reading these threads of clomid success stories really helped on days when my heart was breaking. I took comfort in knowing it wasn't just us. Just keep healthy and don't best yourself up if you have a night off. Also( hope not tmi!) but I used an ovulation machine.. ( not sure if would work with pco) but once had ovulation we just.... but covered the 2 days when ovulating and 3 days after! hope you get your miracle baby really soon. x

I have PCOS and conceived on my first round of clomid 50mg CD 2-6 after a year of actively TTC. I read so many success stories and never thought it would happen for me. I now have an adorable little boy and I'm thankful for him everyday. Hang in there!

Hi MoodyPebble

I was diagnosed with POS when I was 19/20 without being overweight etc but after suffering from terrible period pains throughout my teenage years and irreular periods (sometime not having them for 8 months at a time) I went on the pill which helped with the pain and regulate my body. I got married in June at 25 and came off my pill 5 days after the wedding and fell pregnant straight away which was amazing, My miricle little girl was perfect and is now 2 1/2. We started trying for another baby in May last year and I fell pregnant in Aug, I had a missmiscarriage at 11wks. I had a period in Dec but didnt have another. I got put on Chlomid in July 50mg - got bloods taken on day 21 but hadnt ovulated. I had cramps and hot flushes. I am now on 100gm and having really bad headaches but no cramps. I am hoping so much that it will work this month.

Its hard to stay positive but I have read so many stories of women like us and lots of happy ever after endings!

I know it feels like everywhere you go there are pregnant people - thats how I feel anyway and I work with 2 pregnant ladies at the moment and although I am so happy for them it hurts inside. I think its good to have something to look forward to like a holiday - it takes your mind off it (a little anyway).

Hello ladies, it's my first time on mumsnet but after reading some of your comments on the way home I thought I would join in. I am also on 50 clomid. Took my first lot last month however came on at lunch time today. Really upset sad. We have been ttc for 18 months now and I'm not sure how much more of this emotional roller coaster I can take. If I explain my background I'm 35 hus 36 we have had all the tests and everything came back fine. Which is great but doesn't explain why I'm not preggers. We fall into the unexplained infertility group. My doc has put me on clomid for 3 months. I think in the back of mind I thought I had a real chance this month. I was hoping clomid might give my body the boost. Sadly yet again I feel like I'm back to the start again, have to start the next batch of tablets tomorrow.

Hi yellowcat and Welcome, Sorry to hear about your BFN, hopefully next month will be your month if you're anything like me well then I'm sure you've read plenty of 2nd and 3rd month clomid success stories so we have to remain positive. I'm in a very similar situation although a bit older I'm 37 every time I say it, it makes me think "tick, tock, tick tock" lol. All my tests and my partners tests have come back fine so just like you I don't understand! I too believe that clomid is whats needed for an extra boost and I'm also sure that some months it gives a better boost than others! I'm on CD23 at the moment on my first month of clomid fingers still crossed for a BFP but if not it's onwards and upwards to the next cycle! All this business of living in cycles sure does mess with the head sometimes but hopefully it will be all worth it in the end! Good Luck on your second Clomid adventure smile

Hi Yellow cat, Are you having cylce monitoring as well as Clomid?

I was TCC for 2 years with no luck and at 28 I couldn't undertsand why all my friends/family were falling pregnant so easily and for me it seemed like the most difficult deed in the world. I have had 4 cycles of Clomid but only had monitoring on the first and the forth. They discovered that I had a low egg reserve (of someone that was approaching menopause). I don't qualify for IVF either as my husband has 2 children from a previous relationship. I was all for giving up, as I was getting so stressed and upset each month but last month a mircale happen and i'm now 6 weeks. Don't give up and listen to what the doc recommends, i also had the ovulation injection which i think helped. Look into herbal remedies as I had reflexology, which really helps with the stress of TCC. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. stay strong and keep positive, nature can suprise us. x

Congratulations on your BFP! Wishing you a healthy & happy 9 months! I've just finished my second round of clomid on Sunday...so fingers crossed again for this cycle! smile

Hi, I'm new to clomid too. I have a daughter who is 31/2 yrs old. Fell naturally with her first time of trying, came off pill in march started trying and conceived in September. I didn't want a huge age gap between my children started trying this April and going by previous exp would fall straight away, but instead found out I had PCO. What a killer been trying 8months had Accupuncture for 3months, been on metformin for 2months and had 1 cycle on clomid with no success. I'm getting so down every month when no confirmed pregnancy. We have friends and family saying oh it's time you have another our daughter needs a sibling not knowing the pain and upset were going through. We have had a referall to fertility specialist so hoping for some success soon x

Hi,
I am new to this and really find the above comments useful. I would really like to know more about clomid and hear if it really does work or not. I will tell you a bit about myself, I am 26 and my hubby is 28, I have a blocked right tube, I have had lots of tests done and have found out that I will still be able to have children, I still ovulate but I clearly need some help. I am only on a low dose, taking 50g days 2-6 of my period but every other month. I started last month, I did ovulation tests and ovulated and was really hopefull but then came on this morning, totally gutted sad
We have been trying for babies for a few years now and I really want this to work but feeling really negative now. Is anyone in a similar situation? x

Perkins1 Sat 05-Jan-13 00:01:28

Hi guys, I am new too! This is the first thread I have read that has made me want to join up....it is so encouraging!

I am 31 and my o/half is approaching 32. I think so far we fall into the unexplained infertility category confused Sperm test came back all fine, I get positive OPK's so assume I am ovulating (I had day 21 bloods done about 6 months ago which confirmed this) and I had a lap & dye to rule out any blocked tubes - they too were fine. Doc did say I had small patches of endo but he wasn't concerned. I am currently on CD6 of my first round of 50mg Clomid to be taken on days 2-6. We have been trying for a year so far with one positive HPT, which unfortunately resulted in a non-sticky bean sad

Hi all, first time using a mums net forum. Have been ttc for 17 months. Am 36 in feb, husband 32. Have had all the tests and the most recent series of bloods suggest that I'm not always oving (first couple in march showed perfectly fine ov so glad i went back for second series) so doctor has prescribed clomid which I should start Tuesday. I've been totally obsessed with all things clomid since it was prescribed Thursday. So so excited and have found this thread a great support. I have been pretty obsessive throughout the ttc course and relieved that I can touch base with women going thro same thing. Baby dust to us all xxx

Perkins1 Sat 05-Jan-13 19:36:37

Hi Mury

I too am obsessed with everything Clomid and TTC, unless someone is in the same boat though they just don't get it do they? Would be nice to get a few of us on here to regularly update/encourage/have a good moan to help us through these seemingly never ending 2 week waits! Fingers crossed for our first round xx

Mury Sun 06-Jan-13 10:50:40

Hi Perkins,
Yep, you can definitely feel a bit estranged when on this ttc road so a network of support would do us all the power of good. Just waiting for af to arrive tomorrow then can give this supposed wonder drug a good bash! When do u expect to start? X

Perkins1 Sun 06-Jan-13 13:19:35

I have just finished my first set of 5 tablets....I am currently on CD 8. I'm only on 50mg and haven't had any unpleasant side effects - hope that's not a sign it isn't working?! I am due to see my doctor after the 1st 3 months but he isn't monitoring me in the meantime. Will you be monitored? I will be going for day 21 bloods this cycle but that's it x

Mury Sun 06-Jan-13 16:51:12

I'll be on 50mg too. Dr wants to see me cd 12 to see how many follicles i produce on 50mg and then alter the dose if necessary. I'm really lucky with her actually, she's v supportive. Great that u escaped the side effects - don't worry about what that means - I read that se only affect 30% of clomid takers. Good odds - hope I'm as lucky as u. X

LittleBo80 Mon 07-Jan-13 14:24:30

Hi all - saw this thread and could not resist joining in. I have just finished my second round of Clomid (50mg) after finding out (on Christmas Eve no less!) that the first round was not successful, I did not ovulate it would seem as my progesterone level was only 4.0. I was devastated as I had really felt like the clomid was getting things going...I had loads of swinges and pulling feelings on my left side and just felt different. The clomid seems to give me horrific cold sweats at night and I sleep terribly, I also felt incredibly low and fed up...but that could just be the New Year and grotty weather!

Should also add that I have a completely perfect 19 month old DS, but am still finding this so difficult as I always dreamt of a big family. I have never had regular periods due to stupidity with eating and exercise when I was younger - but with DS I fell pregnant literally days after having my Mirena coil removed...this must have caused some kind of strange hormonal surge that did the trick!

So, that's me - looking forward to hopefully keeping in touch x

Mury Mon 07-Jan-13 17:01:54

Hi littlebo80,

Bad luck on Xmas eve news - terrible timing. Take heart that its early days and keep the faith. Easier said than done. Statistically speaking, it does take months for most of us. Hope ur se were just the result of the weather etc! Could def do without all that extra grief at this point! Xx

GrimmaTheNome Mon 07-Jan-13 17:08:22

My DD (now nearly 14) is the result of clomid...I have PCOS, don't really do much natural ovulating as far as I can tell, but 2nd try with 50mg clomid did the trick for me. One thing I found helpful - because my 'cycle' such as it was even on clomid is long - was ovulation prediction kit (very new back then). I also give some credit to us going off for a nice walking holiday in Exmoor so we were enjoying ourselves not just grimly TTC!

Can't remember any side effects at all.

Good luck all!

88happy Mon 07-Jan-13 17:50:34

Hi Every1, I have read most of ur questions and answers, but i havent come acros anythn wat am going thru at the moment, i have started clomid tabs its my second day today, i dont have periods so the doc said take them after doin a preg test, but from what iv read here ur meant to take them on the second day of ur periods! i feel weird.

Am really confused, am havin these stupid symtoms that are making me feel dizzy and i feel like vomiting, am feeling tired and sleepy. What do i do? plz sum1 help.

Perkins1 Mon 07-Jan-13 19:48:35

Hi LittleBo, the feeling when dreaded AF turns up is horrible and although not easy to get our minds back on track, we pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and try again! How many rounds of Clomid does your doc intend to give you? I have to see mine after 3 to discuss what happens next.

88Happy I would double check with your doc and explain your concerns. I have to say on all the sights I've been browsing, those who don't have periods naturally have all seemed to have taken drugs to bring them on first.....but I'm not a doctor so couldn't say for sure. I can't imagine he/she would say to take them if it wasn't ok to do so. Double checking is the only way to put your mind at rest.

Hi Grimma, I too like to use the OPKs......seeing a smiley face (on the clear blue digi ones) doesn't half give you a boost!

Baby dust to all! Xxx
