50mg clomid didn't work for me last month, and I found out today at my follicle tracking scan that 100mg clomid hasn't worked either I didn't have ANY side effects whatsoever, so I did see this coming but it has still really upset me.
My dose has now been increased to 150mg for my next cycle, but I have also been told that if 150mg doesn't work then there is nothing else the NHS can do for us . Apparently our next step is IVF but because DH has 2DDs we are not eligible for NHS-funded IVF.
I'm feeling so sad and could really do with some 150mg clomid success stories to give me just a little glimmer of hope! Anyone want to share?
Hi New I had the follicle tracking scan on cd11 which I know is very early on the sonographer said that because there is no growth in follicles at all, it means it hasn't worked. I don't have cycles naturally and have always had to take progesterone to induce a bleed since coming off BC.
You're right though, late ov is still a (very small) possibility so we will continue to DTD regularly anyway, but feel so demotivated now!
I think don't give up hope, CD11 is quite early for a scan.
I think I ovulated late because my cycles were always longer than "average", ovarian pain and suuuuuper positive OPK (never had this before). I have had cycles of 60/70 days before but i'm happy with 35-40 days.
I have heard that ovulating late is not ideal, poor egg/endometrial lining quality (i think?), but its better than not at all I guess.
I am NO doctor, but would suggest to you to try 150mg as they told you to, but try to arrange your follicle scan around CD16 or later, especially since you have long cycles normally. I was told by my sonographer nurse to try 100mg next time, and come later in my cycle, not CD14 because of the fact of my longer cycles.
and most importantly of course make sure you try BD every second day... you never know!!
