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

cm201085 Tue 12-Feb-13 20:02:56

Well I haveonly done the ov tests for 2 months and yes last month on day 21 i ovulated and thi month i obulated on day 14.god knows and i'll do it again on 21st day just to check im not ovulating.

I think the 5th month I wont use the tests at all and see what happens.

Chatty thats brill news. Hate scans! My day 10 scan is next week so fingers crossed. Lets hope this is a lucky month for us all! Cm, I ovulated day 14 first month and day 19 this month. I stopped testing once I got a positive though. Who would've thought this ttc malarkey would be so difficult! [Confused]

Hello everyone,

I have been reading this for the last few weeks but not got round to signing up!! It is great to read everyone stories and not feel so alone and know that not only one that letting this consume me!

We have been ttc for over two years now and are on our third round of 50g clomid. I am also getting married in a month but did not want to turn down the clomid as had so much trouble getting it as overweight. I am just seeing my GP and only got day 21 blood tests on my first cycle.

We are lucky enough to have a beautiful little boy who is nearly 3, I am desperate for him to have a sibling as he would make a great big brother.

Sorry this has turned into a novel! I am getting positive opk now for first time and using pre seed and robittison (think how you spell it!) Anyone using anything else?

Hi mummy. Congrats on your wedding, I got married last summer & loved every minute! I only started clomid after the wedding but wish I'd started sooner. Fingers crossed for you! smile

I've also got some preseed to try this month, third round of clomid for me too. What is robittison could I ask? I also take metformin (diabetic), folic acid, vit C & conception multi-vits. Phew! grin

Ah, apologies ladies as it appears I have indeed missed 2 pages worth of news (stupid mobile phone! ).

LittleMiss day 21 bloods are done on that day cos ur meant to test for progesterone 7 days post ovulation, but if u ovulated on day 9 then 7 days later would be day 16 so maybe u did ovulate but the test was done too late? Also the clear blue opk's say that Clomid doesn't interfere with the tests so we should be fine using them. Anyway, hopefully Monday u can take that nxt step and bring on ur period....bully ur doctor if u have to grin

Hello and welcome to all u other ladies! Looks like we're getting a nice community going here. Baby dust to all xx

Ps yep smiley face = ovulation (or about to at least).... managed to do the ironing, more washing, watch Eastenders and Holby City and get jiggy! It's never quite like that in porn tho is it?! wink

Littlemissworrier Wed 13-Feb-13 08:26:29

Ha Ha Perkins you are funny!!! All very positive! thanks for explaining the ovulation that makes total sence smile

Littlemissworrier Wed 13-Feb-13 08:33:44

little question ladies, had anyone given up that friday night glass of wine??? was speaking to a friend who had teribble conception problems, took them over 6 years and 4 lots of IVF bless them, they both had problems (tubes and sperm) but amazing news is they now have a little girl and she is perfect smile

Only reason I ask is they both cut out alchol all togther and improved their diets(he lost weight and she had to gain a little) the specialist I am under hasnt mentioned alchol or weight but his receptionist checked my bmi and said if it drops any lower they wont treat me. Its currently 19.5 whoch I thought was heailthy? apparently they wont treat fertility to bmi under 19. im so desperate to get pregnant has anyonne else had similar advice, if so I think putting a few pounds on may help maybe?? dont know what to do for best as I thought I was really healthy confused


chattynatty82 Wed 13-Feb-13 17:01:56

day 13 today and getting few pains in my left side which is side of big follicle so im thinking im starting to ovulate i been told not to buy the ov tests so im trying with out them month fingers crossed im right nice to see other ppl on here that have such kind words wishing you all buddles of joy soon x

cm201085 Wed 13-Feb-13 21:18:28

Hi folks...
Lepordspots I also use pre-seed and I had tried concieve plus but went back to pre-seed and on folic on it for 3years also.
What is ur conception multi v'sand can u just get them in chemist?
Tell me about it!! lol

Also mummyurs what is robbitison? And congrats on wedding... smile

Littlemiss I have tried changing my diet, eating more veg and fruit and trying to have more milk well at least in my cereal as I dont like milk to drink anyway.
Also trying to stop drinking so much fizzy juice...

My stomachs been funny this week, i get shooting pains from middle that spreads across and then other times its like a butterflies or as if your nervous.

And also 2 more pp lI know are preg too and one of thems at work sad
Im extatic for the person of course but always get that little pang of when will it be me...
Espec when you know they've not been trying and its just happened, you know.

Good luck all smile

I know what you mean perkins, what with a toddler and my partner doing shift work we have to book it and set alarms. The pre seed only makes the whole thing even more sexy!

Robitussin is a cough medicine, I know sounds wierd but apparently clomid can thicken your CM so this thins it out. Has to be one that only contains guaifenesin and 10ml 3 times a day, five days before (you think) ovulation will start.

I have just cut out caffine and trying to eat more sensibly but cant bring myself to stop the wine yet! This is all stressful enough I need some vices to get through it all!

Had my positive opk at the weekend so now I am on lovely two week count down. For some reason cant stop watching One born every minute just to torture myself!

mummyurs Wed 13-Feb-13 22:07:12

Sorry cm201085 could you be ovulating with the stomach pain. The pain I have since being on clomid is worse than period.

I know what you mean about pregnant people but then I also hate when people dont tell me. As worried will offend!

cm201085 Thu 14-Feb-13 08:07:57


I ov'd on the 14th day this month but it is meant to be the 21st day according to Dr's so I will test again today.

Only my close friends and family know how long I have been trying for but my work doesnt know. I think they have an incline as im at the gyn suite alot lol.

I have done a years temp contract and I also got it renewed until november this year so by then that will mean I have been there 2years all in.

Although I am scared to tell them what is going on as it is a temp contract as I dont know how it will all work...will they just terminate my contract, they might not re-new my contract, do i even get maternity leave. I dont know and I dont know who to ask...
And i think i am going to have to eventually tell them once I start IUI and def when (if) it comes to IVF.
I work with the NHS.

Hi all,

Thanks for the info on the cough medicine, might give that one a go!

The multi-vits I normally take are the pregnacare conception. I've got boot's own this month to try.

Thats tough about your job situation cm and I'm afraid I don't have much advice for you. I'm a teacher in a secure job but got a promotion to senior leadership this year but it's only temporary too and they'll be interviewing for it again soon. I'll then have the tell them/not tell them dilemma confused only a couple of my close work friends are in the know - it's not something you want to broadcast is it! grin

Hi Sarah, I was just checking in on this thread and noticed that your story is quite similar to my own! I too was on 50mg of clomid for 3 months, my day 21 bloods on the first month came back up over 100 so doc told me to continue for next 5 months on 50mg. When it was time to start my 3rd month I made a very bold but conscious decision to take 100mg and also change the baby making method by changing I mean I just had sex more often and when possible had sex in the morning, afternoon and night compared to first 3 months when it was just at night time to my surprise last week I got a BFP after ttc for 20 months. I know you're feeling down at the moment and I'm hoping this might give u a little lift and also some food for thought! Best of Luck!

SarahJ23 Fri 15-Feb-13 00:11:03

Thanks for the advice, was thinking I may do something along them lines glad to here I'm not the only one. I'm gonna try and see my GP tomorrow as she is lovely and at the start of all this was very helpful so hoping she may be able to put a fire up the bums of the hospital for me. My husband is coming with me as I'm not very good at being pushy. Thanks for all the support and advice, wishing everyone luck xxx

chattynatty82 Fri 15-Feb-13 15:01:46

Hi, I'm starting clomid tomorrow (have PCOS and don't think I ovulate normally), I'm feeling quite anxious and excited! Don't want to get my hopes up but...come on clomid, get me knocked up! wink Saw this thread and wondered how everyone here has got on? Have there been any success stories on here?

lilmissinpatient Sat 16-Feb-13 11:03:15

A good GP can go a long way! I didn't have the nerve to inform my GP but did admit it to him the other day...he didn't seem surprised and just said well whatever you did you got what you needed! Good luck smile

SarahJ23 Sat 16-Feb-13 22:35:24

So myself and my hubby have seen my GP yesterday and she has sent an email to my the futility department ( she wasnt very inpressed at how we have been treated so far) so should get another appointment soon so they can explain properly what our options are and poss up my dose of clomid but if not I'm just going to do it myself. So glad to here your good news 😊 hope I have some luck soon. Thanks again for the advise xxx

chattynatty82 Sun 17-Feb-13 00:04:32
