Hi Ladies,

I thought id join as I was prescribed clomid to start next cycle.

A bit of info- Im 26 and DP is 30 we have been TTC 1 for 18 cycles with no success.

We started tests at the 12 month mark and found out I wasn't ovulating even though my periods are a regular 28 days.

I had my second gynae app yesterday after HSG (clear), internal scan (clear) and more blood tests which came back equivocal.

I have in the last few months started to get positive opks which id never had before but my blood test still came back equivocal so I dont really understand. I also get ovulation pains and EWCM at the right time.

Im in my tww at the mo but I very much doubt anything will come of it considering my results, so I will start my clomid around the 7th October.

Hi ago! I'm new here to and like you went through all the tests amds they came back normal, but have been TTC for 19 long months with 2 mc along the way. So I just started my first round of clomid and I'm on day 3 of clomid prescribed 5 days then on the 12th day of my cycle if it looks like I have healthy eggs I have an injection to take to force ovulation and fingers crossed. That is 7 days away ands I'm a mess just hoping that it works not ready for another let down right now. So trying to stay positive and non stresses. The side effects from clomid haven't been bad except they make my feel pregnant, physically not to bad but I think feeling pregnant Is doing a number on my mental state, hard to try not to think and worry about

yeah it worked on me but I didn't take it for the full 7 days I forgot lol

feels lile ages away till I see the dr. im on day 9 and no smily face as yet hoping ill ovulate today x

Sorry to hear you've had such a rough time of it ridgeway...hopefully seeing a new doc will open up more options and bring you some positivity. My current gynae has said clomid 50mg...if it fails then clomid 100mg, if that fails a stronger tablet (dont know the name sorry), if that fails then injections...and finally ivf. I admit it seems like a crazy long process but he assured me there ARE lots of options before IVF.

Did provera cause AF with you? My doc was surprised it didn't with me and I find it worrying...anyone have any ideas why it may have failed if all my bloods etc were normal? I just hope BCP induces AF so I can try clomid.

ridgway28 Sat 20-Sep-14 20:29:57

hi ago welcome. before clomdi all my results were normal just not ovulating hence no af. I was put on those tablets to start af I forgot to take on day 4 and on day 5 she came!! I was on 50mg for 7 moths had an eptopic. and misscarriage abd clomid gave me OHSS im waiting to see a new dr at a new clinic on 5.5.14 to get a second opinion. as my old dr said ivf or nothing.

good luck x

smile Hi everyone, im new here (been reading while undergoing tests). All my scans/blood tests/HSG tests are all normal, just haven't had AF since coming off BCP 15 months ago. Also I failed provera challenge.

Yesturday my Gynae prescribed 10 days BCP to hopefully cause AF (pleeeaaase work), followed by first round of clomid (50mg per day). If that fails, then we will try a higher dose. Soooo nervous it won't work, currently I just feel like my body is asleep, and having AF/O feels like such a pipe dream right now as it's been about 15 yrs since my last natural cycle (on BCP for aaages).

Anyone else here also had normal tests etc? Did clomid work for you? What dose?

KJM is there a nurses line at the clinic that you can call? That is what I do if any questions pop up. Your clinic regime doesn't sound normal to me - you should be monitored at least for the first month.

kurama Tue 09-Sep-14 09:53:31

Sorry about af and shit hospitals photo x hugs
I'm not sure if she's trying this month or not hmm

photographerlady Tue 09-Sep-14 09:50:09

AF arrived here yesterday. Didn't ovulate this month. I am in Mumbai for work next week so decided to take a month off clomid. Fertilty referral wants to run a series of scans and tests anyway again seeing my last catchment area was London and they were awful. My specialist here was even appalled by the notes as hammersmith hospital lost my DH test results 3 times. And they diagnosed me with cysts 9 months after the fact.

So most likely pick up another round of clomid again in mid October

sharond101 Tue 09-Sep-14 09:40:35

Is she trying again? She said she thought she needed a break.

kurama Tue 09-Sep-14 09:38:26

she was fine. she got told not to dtd due to amount of folicals after they already had then got a letter saying everything was fine from hosp. that pissed her off but shes ok.

sharond101 Tue 09-Sep-14 08:36:18

Thanks Kurama I was worried about her medically after she had had so many follicles.

kurama Mon 08-Sep-14 23:08:28

Ridgway is doing ok. She's joined me on my FB group.

sharond101 Mon 08-Sep-14 17:56:36

KJM2013 it's first day of full flow.

LondonSuperTrooper Mon 08-Sep-14 16:43:18

Thank you Annie, Kurama & Photographer. I am having a re-scan on Wednesday so hopefully I can find out for sure one way or another. Sorry about AF turning up sad

KJM2013 Really sorry but I am not on clomid. I'm sure that one of these lovely ladies will be along shortly with some advice.

And yes, we haven't heard from Ridgeway for a while - I hope that she is OK.

sharond101 Mon 08-Sep-14 14:15:40
