Hi, im on my second month of 50g clomid hoping it works this time, i have been trying to become pregnant for 2 years now i already have a 3 year old daughter and they are not sure why im struggling to become pregnant again. I would love to hear some good news about clomid i dont think i can take anymore negative tests sad The hospital have only given me 3 months of 50g and said if it does not work they wont give me anymore! so i dont no what they do next. i havent really had many side effects from it just headaches. If anyone can let me know there experience that would be great thanks

Well starting my next 6 months soon as I missed the window this month, feeling really down atm everyone seems to be pregnant on my fb and at work, trying not to think about it just doesn't work and today my friend brought he 11day old baby to work it took all I had not to burst into tears when she asked how I was getting on on the baby front. I'm going back to GPs to see what they can suggest if anything, thanks for the reply cm201085, just nice to know people feel the same as me x

Hi Sarah,

Sorry you are feeling down. Im confused when reading as some ladies get scanned throughout their clomid to check eggs and egg size etc, did they do that for you?? Are they putting you on 100mg for your second roound?

Really hope it all kicks in for you and you feel a bit better soon.

Its the whole waiting game drives me mad - grrrrrr

Sending lots of love and big hug xxx

I hope we all get some great news soon. There are a lot of ladies around me that are pregnant or got new borns. I work in a supermarket and they are all over the place. It hurts a lot to see them, I am prying that clomid works for me as I'm not sure how much longer I can keep this up. Xx

SarahJ23 Wed 06-Feb-13 22:34:24

They haven't scanned me at all since I've had clomid the only test I have been given is a blood test on day 21 to see if I ovulated and that was only on my first round ( now 7 months ago ) I start my next round of 50mg on my next period as haven't taken it for two months. I don't personal know anyone that has had clomid and am very confused as everyone seems to have been seen and had more tests than I have had, I have only seen my futility specialist three times since I was given clomid including the first time I agent there and like I said it's been 7 months now. My next option is IVF as they told me when I went at the begining of this month and they don't want to increase my dose as "I responded well to the treatment" I'm just frustrated and very confused!!! sad

SarahJ23 Wed 06-Feb-13 22:53:19

They did check to see if I had any blockages but I don't luckily and my hubby's sperm has been tested also fine but this was middle of last year and since then I've only had the one blood test, my periods was also all over the place for about a year so had meds to induse a period so I could start the clomid but since then I have a period around day 32 every month, I don't have PCOS and they couldn't find any reason why I wasn't ovulating every month or why I had random bleeds. So all in all they haven been very helpfull and like I said in above message since I've been on 50mg clomid they haven really done anything. Thanks for the replys is helping xxx

leanne1405 Thu 07-Feb-13 00:15:41

I am the same as you Sarah all my tubes are fine the fella is fine I'm just not ovulating. I also have underactive thyroid so that could be a problem too. I really hope this clomid works as I can't take much more disappointment. I know it's hard Sarah but you just have to relax a little and let nature do her thing. That's what I'm now thinking anyway xx

Littlemissworrier Fri 08-Feb-13 16:50:39

Hi Sarah, I really feel for you.
Cant you ask again for the higher dosage? reading these posts allot of ladies seem to get caught on 100ml, know they said you responded well but they only tested you once - bless you, seems so unfair on you! keep pushing them hunny, sometimes they just need it.

They really tried to push me into going away and coming back in 6 months as they thought my body would just 'click click in' and start ovulating. I just couldnt wait another 6 months!!

I really hope my period comes soon, I need another 2 before i can even start clomid, one for the scan and one to start clomid. Im giving it one more week then I am going to ask them to induce my period ike you did.

Fingers crossed for us all,

lots love xx

Hi Littlemiss

Sorry I took so long to reply...
Once I had had my laperoscopy he had agreed to give me provera as my periods were so irregular so I wasnt waiting another 2-3months before I could start it.
I took the provera whenever I wanted for 7 days i think it was and then after 10 days Im sure I got a period and on 2nd day of period I was to start the clomid.
The next week I got an internal scan which should the folical at 11mm and the next week it was 18mm and the 3rd week it was gone which meant I had ovulated, and I also gota blood test to double check.


cm201085 Fri 08-Feb-13 20:34:17

Im also rather confused myself to be honest as when I got the scans and blood tests they had said I ovulated round about the 21st day of my cycle.
And last month when I did my tests everyday on the 21st day it was positive as they said!

Although this month my periods started funny andmy ovulation sticks said i was ovulating last night which is only the 14th day of my cycle and It was positive again this morn too!!
So I am confused with whats happening - you do only ovulate once a month dont u?
Anyone help?


Oh n PS: Littlemissworrier...I would just ask dr about provera - cant see why hey'd say no. plus I took that once for 7-10days. And I think the clomid regulates ur period too as I get one every month now but thats cause of the clomid I think.


SarahJ23 Fri 08-Feb-13 22:33:54

Hello, yes you only ovulate once a month, I hope u have better luck than I have so far, I'm not working much next week so gonna go to my GPs for a chat if anyone has any suggestions on what I should ask? Can my GP even help? Or will they just tell me to get in touch with the hospital, I suppose anything is worth a try at this point. Wishing u all the best of luck and keep posting please it's so nice to talk to people that understand xxx

cm201085 Sat 09-Feb-13 00:21:55

Thanks Sarah I thought so, oh well I dont know whats going on Maybe this will be the month then since its been different instead of 21st day its 14th this time. hm wellfingers xd lol.

I tried to speak to Dr at hospital last week and I just got told that there was nothing else I could do apartfrom wait. And that it is luck and his swimmers need to swim the right way!! lol

Hi Ladies
cm thank you so mcuh for your responces, you are helping me so much!

When I had my first perod after the awful 6 months with nothing after the pill, i did the clear blue ovulation sticks and i got a positive smiley face on day 9!! i was over the moon thinking i was ovulating as at this point i didnt know anything was wrong other than id had no periods after coming off the pill. Anyway on day 21 i went to docs so they coudl double chcek with a blood test, thats when they told me i hadnt ovulated and my hormones were inbalanced - was so confused and upset and thats when our journey began.

My doc wasnt much help, just said go away and come back in year!!! he said it should all kick start itself??? i really coulnt wait a year knowing my hormones were inbalanced etc so I called the hospital and asked for a quote to see the specialist privately - they have been amazing!!

that first period was November and i didnt have one in Dec but i did again in Jan. Now just waiting on the next one (hopfully this month) for the scan and then clomid!!!

cm I did ask my doc why it showed on the ovulation kit as a positive if they said the blood one showed i never ovulated?? They kind of fobbed me off telling me its a different hormone that shws on the ovulation kits and not 100% im so connfuned so not used one after my Jnauary period but now have no clue if I am ovulating or when ?? suppose they will track that when i start clomid??? never wanted a period so badly to start everything - im definatey going to call the clinic with your advise. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

Sarah I woudl definately ask them how they know the 50ml had worked if they had scanned you, bless you, will keep everything crossed for you. Hope they giv you 100ml xxxxxxx

Hi Littlemissworrier/Rachel

Yeah I had heard that before about ovulation tests not working properly as of clomid.
When I started it all I had said to dr should I use tests and check temp etc and they said not too and just have loads of sex!

So for the 1st 2months of the clomid I didnt use tests or check temp as I thought it would be pointless.

And then I read on forums that ppl were using them and checking there temp, so I ended up checking and using them...but now im beginning to wonder if i will keep using them...dnt know if its worth it, you know...

chattynatty82 Sun 10-Feb-13 21:20:30

hi im new to this group and looking for other ppl useing clomid im on my first lot of treatment me and my husband have been trying for about 4 and a half years but i have pcos any advice on clomid and metformin im useing both together and praying this is much better out come then just the clomid on its own

Littlemissworrier Mon 11-Feb-13 08:45:15

CM when you use the ovulaion sticks, do you still get a positive reading every month? if so it must be picking somthing up?? gosh its so confusing isnt it? im not even started on my clomid yet and they said it gave me a wrong reading? grrrrrrrr

Day 36 today and still no period of sighn of it so I acn get started with the scan :O(

Chatty Natty, hello and good luck with everything. Im not sure what metformin is? is that taken alongside clomid?

Littlemissworrier Mon 11-Feb-13 08:48:51

SarahJ good look with docs this week. Big hugs xxx

chattynatty82 Mon 11-Feb-13 11:07:14

yes it is i was told it helps with the clomid i was put on metformin in october while i lost weight as was told i was to big to go on clomid by jan i had lost 2 and half stone and given clomid which i only got to start it on the first of this month so its all still new to me but i have looked it up on the net and its meant to work really well together so im keeping fingers crossed dont know how much longer i can keep getting let down every month with no pregnancy xx

Leopardspots Mon 11-Feb-13 11:47:16

Hi all, hope you don't mind me joing. I'm starting my 3rd round of clomid today after no bfp's so far. I had 21 day blood test round 1 which showed I'd ovulated on 50mg so stayed on that dose for 2nd cycle (wasn't monitored for that one). Now I'm having a day 10 scan, still on lowest dose. I also take metformin as I'm diabetic (type 2) and have pcos. Been ttc 2 years so far and no bfp's so I know how you feel sad fingers crossed for this month for us all! smile oh and well done on your weight loss!

chattynatty82 Mon 11-Feb-13 12:56:14

Littlemissworrier Mon 11-Feb-13 17:17:21

CM thank you for your advise, I called the clinic today as on day 36 of cycle and still no period grin( I mentioned to them about 'bringing on my period' so I can have the scans and start clomid. They said to call back next monday, if no period by then they will speal to my specialist and see if he will prescribe it - fingers crossed!!!
