As above really. I finished 5 days of Provera on Saturday to induce a bleed to start Clomid. When should I expect a period? Just wondering if anyone has any experiences. Google is telling me lots of different times. Getting impatient blush

Bump for the lunchtime browsers...

With me it took 14 days both times! I was not a happy bunny but it did work eventually

I've taken progesterone pills around 5-6 times to induce bleeds as I don't have cycles or periods. Each time it's arrived exactly 6 days after I've taken the final pill, so I have 5 days of nothing and it arrives on the 6th day, like clockwork.

Hope this helps. x

I'm on day 7 of waiting.

Thank you smile

14 days!! I had about 3 in my head. I'll try and be more patient...

Helpful thread - I'm waiting for my Provera prescription to arrive. So after waiting I can expect more waiting. Who'd have thought it!

Oops sorry sarcasm not aimed at anyone!! Just having one of those days grin

EllaMenoPea Tue 06-Oct-15 18:03:59

Ha moomin, waiting around whilst TTC, who'd have thought it!

TMI: just went to the toilet and there's brown blood, do I count this as day 1?

I've taken it WAY too many times. It always takes 4 days for AF to arrive after the last tablet for me!

RoseBud2015 Tue 06-Oct-15 19:15:23

You only count it as day 1 when you have enough red blood to need a pad or tampon. I think you will start AF properly tomorrow x

Another good question Ella smileWhen I started Clomid I was told the second day of 'full flow', but not sure if it's the same with Provera. No doubt someone else will be along shortly with the answer. Good luck with the Clomid and do come and join us on the Bumsnet bus if you fancy it smile

Thanks again!

I guess I'll see what happens in the morning and give the clinic a call.

Started yesterday evening and counting today as day 1. Tomorrow I start 5 days of Clomid. Wish me luck!

EllaMenoPea Wed 07-Oct-15 14:37:53

Good luck! We conceived DD on Clomid 3 years ago so I'm praying it goes as well this time. I phoned the clinic and they told me to count today as day one and I've booked my follicle tracking.

Hoping this is a lucky thread.....

My period is really light....freaking out it means the clomid won't work....any ideas wise people?

Moomin37 Thu 08-Oct-15 19:26:44

Good luck in the Clomid ladies smile

EllaMenoPea Thu 08-Oct-15 20:19:35

Thank you Moomin smile

Took my first does of clomid last night. No side effects so far! Any Update EllaMenoPea? xxx

EllaMenoPea Fri 09-Oct-15 11:17:58

Took my first one last night too! No side effects so far, I don't remember having any last time though so hopefully won't feel too bad. Have you booked your scans?

YouBoggleMyMind Fri 09-Oct-15 13:57:07

Ah we can be Clomid buddies!

Yes, i've got a scan on the 19th to check i'm on the right dose and things are working. xxx

EllaMenoPea Fri 09-Oct-15 14:03:20

Yes! I've got one on the 16th...let me know how it goes! X

YouBoggleMyMind Fri 09-Oct-15 14:55:05

How exciting! I will be thinking of you! Am I right in thinking this is bambino number 2 for you? Xx

EllaMenoPea Fri 09-Oct-15 15:17:18

Yes, used Clomid last time too so am desperately trying not to get my hopes up too much!

How about you? X
