Hi, I wondered if anyone could give me feedback on whether they've had much success on clomid. I have pcos and am on metformin, my gyny has put me on clomid, 50mg days 2-6 (I'm now on cd 12 and using opk twice a day). Firstly has anyone had success like this and secondly I'm a little worried as my gyny isn't giving me a follicle scan or anything, just said have a progesterone blood test day 21. Alot of my friends had scans and injections and I'm worried my gyny isn't being thorough..any advice would be great pls.

Also if this month doesn't work should I see a specialist before going up to 100mg a day (as doc said that's the next move)...so I have a scan etc on thst round??

Zebs - I could practically write your post! I'm on 1st course of clomid and have also perhaps had too high hopes for the "magic pills". My DH also has low sperm morphology. The doc said not to worry about it but its hard not to. When do you find out about your progesterone test? Did it go ok?

I had a shock diagnosis of pcos in 2008. I tried clomid which didn't work for me but then did hair analysis and vitamin supplements through foresight preconception and conceived after two months on the program. Might be worth a try in conjunction with the clomid?

I get my test results today but now all I'm worried about are his results, he has another test Friday. How are you doing?

Zebs Thu 24-Jan-13 08:33:23

Francescarose Thankyou for your answer, so what is the hair analysis etc? Never heard of it??

I got my progesterone test back, clomid worked, I ovulated!! Level was 80.7 anyone know what that reading means?

Soph80 Thu 24-Jan-13 21:42:36

i don't blame you. I'm feeling the same, probably as I'd put so much on clomid working. Think maybe this month I have further to fall as actually thought Id get pregnant once I started clomid. I am worried about DHs morphology (was 3%) although the doc said its nothing to worry about x

just re-read your post zebs, great news that the clomid worked! x

Zebs Sun 27-Jan-13 08:12:34

Hey soph80 any news on your clomid? X

Soph80 Sun 27-Jan-13 08:33:37

Well had my day 23 test but don't get results until 12th Feb. Im not worried though as I was ovulating before clomid. Got a BFN yesterday. Really annoying as not sure what day AF due (its some time next week) as had my phone nicked with all my info in it grrrr.

I have three kids from clomid, highest dose was 200mg. I know high but I was on it for two months and got pregnant!! I was gradually moved up also. Don't be scared to increase the dose, some people need more than others! Good luck!!!

Soph80 it's not unusual for clomid to make your cycle longer.
