Anyone used Oxford Online Pharmacy for Clomid?

Hey all. Been trying ttc #2 for 18 months, had an MC (Oct 14) and MMC (Aug 15). I'm almost 39 years old and been told by my GP that I can't get any fertility treatment on the NHS.

I've come across the Oxford Online Pharmacy and have read reputable reviews for it. I'm thinking of using it to buy Clomid to help strengthen my ovulation. Has anyone used this service before? Can't afford to go private for consultations etc so feel this would be a more affordable way to help me get pregnant.

Any experiences that anyone would be happy to share with me please?

I've nc for this thread as I'm a fairly frequent poster to these boards.

I personally wouldn't buy prescription stuff online.
Have you looked into soy isoflavones? It's a chlomid alternative apparently and you can buy it in Tesco, boots etc. I've tried it this cycle, not sure if it's worked or not yet!

Yeah I tried Soy Isoflavones for 6 months, maybe more. I didn't see any joy and not sure they did my cycle any good sad Plus my Tescos stopped selling it so couldn't get hold of it anymore!

Has your GP refused to prescribe Clomid? in my experience, fertility treatment was defined by the NHS as IUI or IVF (although was 12 years ago, when they had only just begun to even offer it on the NHS). My GP was prepared to prescribe Clomid, but decided to refer me to a consultant instead. We only hit a brick wall on the NHS after 2 laparoscopies / ovarian drilling and many, many cycles of Clomid.

Interesting TattyCat thank you so much for that. I just assumed that when they said the NHS wouldn't fund treatment, that it included Clomid too. I shall have to clarify that, thank you! smile

Hey coffee - we have really similar stories - I'm also nearly 39 and been ttc #2 for 18 months - but I've not had any mc just nothing. I'd looked at that too and was considering it as I've run out of options and nearly out of hope. My GP was diabolical- totally uninterested as already have one child and completely dismissive apart from to give me leaflets for private consultations. Let me know how you get on - I too thought clomid wouldn't be considered for me

Hi coffee

I have read of many ladies on here who have been given clomid by NHS for 2nd pregnancies as it isn't actually that expensive.

See if you can see a different dr and see what they say.

P.s. To those discussing soy isoflathoms, I told my fertility specialist I had taken them and he went nuts. He said that if anything that will stop you ovulating, not encourage it. So perhaps don't mention you've been taking them as my dr refused to give me any clomid because I had been "so stupid" taking the soy.

vap - really? I was seriously considering trying soy isoflavones next cycle. In that case I won't then. It did concern me a little when I was reading the reviews on Amazon and everyone was saying they reduced hot flushes from the menopause - confusing!
I may go to a different doctor and beg for some clomid.

Thanks Vap0 for that advice!! I've either heard someone else mention about SI and being "told off" about it or perhaps you've mentioned that before on the threads here?

I'll let you know kittenpie x

CoffeeCait Sun 10-Jan-16 19:51:26

It depends on the concentration of SI kittenpie. I believe that you can take upto 200mg for 5 days for fertility but anything over 750mg for menopausal relief!

Hi, could have been me again on another thread? Not sure. By all means give them a try and see what happens just don't tell your Dr. The month I took them I ovulated for the 1st time in about 2 years I think, so have no idea what to think about it. Never took them again after that and binned them.
