Bumping for you.

SusieR Thu 29-Jan-09 20:41:32

Hi, I have a success story on Clomid. A lovely four year old girl. I used it for 2 months after 18 mths of not conceiving. So i does work. Fingers crossed for you.

BrandyBaby Thu 29-Jan-09 20:50:39


Thank you! what dose were you on? and how soon were you able to tell that you were pregnant?

BrandyBaby Thu 29-Jan-09 20:51:39


Why every thread i start do you always say ...."Bumping for you" ??????? What does that mean?

NaturalBornThreadKiller Thu 29-Jan-09 20:52:41

no experience of clomid brandy but wishing you all the luck in the world, i had a hard time getting/staying pg too

Lulumama Thu 29-Jan-09 20:52:56

she has 'bumped' your thread because no-one has replied, and bumping moves it back to the top of the active conversation boards so hopefully it will be seen

may i offer you a bit of advice? don';t use capitals, it is shouting, and don't post multiple threads asking the same question, jsut post it once and keep bumping


NaturalBornThreadKiller Thu 29-Jan-09 20:54:24

bumping for you means 'help this thread back to the top of active convos'

puzzlerocks is a fab poster who notices when an thread has gone unanswered and 'bumps' it back to the top again,

she does it for lots of posts/threads smile

I am mum to two clomid babies. I find that the key to clomid success is to take it on days 2-6 and also to use Robitussin cough medicine or any cough medicine where the active ingredient is Guinafesin(sp). Clomid can dry up your mucous and make it harder for sperm to reach their destination. The Guinafesis medicine loosens up mucous in coughs and has the same effect down below.

I took it from CD1 and used between 2 and three bottles of the stuff up to ovulation. Doesn't taste great but I got a BFP first month each time on 50mg.

I am hoping to try for a 3rd clomid baby in the autumn. Good luck to you

BrandyBaby Sun 08-Feb-09 03:20:49


Sorry it has taking me awhile to respond. I pay for clomid out of pocket. And I do have health insurance but it does not include and anything dealing with fertility. I did get several blood tests done and there is nothing wrong with me-everything came back normal and good. Even my husband went and had his sperm count & mobility checked... he is in the normal range and everything looks good for him as well. My doctor said that perhaps I am putting to much pressure on myself. Plus, the fact that I was on birth control pills for 6 years straight... my doctor said because of that it could take for 12-18 months to conceive. But thank for all of your information. And if you can remember anything else that might help me, please let me know. Thanks!

BrandyBaby Sun 08-Feb-09 03:30:02


What do you think of taking clomid on days 1-5? This is the first time hearing about Robitussin. How much should I take? And on what days should I take it? So foe each child you tried and on the first month you got pregnant both times?? That’s great! Both times did you take 50mg?

I took 4 months of clomid 50mg on days 5-9... Two months off... then last month clomid 100mg on days 3-7…. this month I am trying clomid 100mg on days 1-5. What do you think? And please keep me updated on your 3rd baby. Thank you!

5 years ago I took clomid (called ickaclomin here) and it stimulated me to have 2 eggs. I was REALLY lucky and got pregnant the first treatment, with twins and today the twins are 4.5 years old and bloody gorgeous!

It works by stimulating your brain and getting you to release FSH (Follicle stimulating hormone).

I'm trying to get pregnant again now and thought it would be that easy again. Twice I had 2 eggs (the successful one and the first try now), but twice I only had one egg. My doctor said that clomid can be unpredictable (as to how many eggs you get) and so after having had 3 unsuccessful treatments on the clomid, we have now upgraded to FSH shots (I am impatient, I have spent years not getting pregnant naturally and for me the disappointment depression isn't worth going through).

As for how soon can you tell you're's different for every woman. I know some women who claim to know from conception. For me, I was pregnant with twins and really sick with morning sickness but I still had no other way of knowing I was pregnant. My dr told me to wait for 2 weeks before doing a blood test because I took ovitrelle to force the ovulation and that stays in your system for 2 weeks.
