Hi all I'm looking for a bit of encouragement,me and my partner been ttc for over 2 years now after going for all the test I've been told I do not ovulate and have been started on clomid, the consultant has put me straight onto 2 50mg tablets a day on days 2-6. Would be grateful if people could share stories of success please x

Hi no personal experience, but worked for an Nct friend. Another had IUI which was successful 1st time.
Best of luck

Kellie91 Wed 26-Sep-12 18:20:09

Hi thank you, my consultant has mentioned IUI but thought this was the best way to go

Hi Kellie, not a story of success as such but am currently on day 19 of my first cycle of clomid, going for bloods this Friday to see if I ovulated.
We've been ttc for a little over a year and I don't ovulate either; I was only on 50mg a day this cycle though (will go up to 100mg if 50 doesn't work for me).

Are you taking progesterone to bring on a bleed or do you have to wait for one to come naturally to get started?

Pregnant with twins after first cycle smile))
Good luck!

Same story as nevercan. Pregnant on third round of Clomid (first time I ovulated in years) and am now pregnant naturally with DC2. smile

Oh yes, forgot that bit. Got pregnant with beautiful B/G twins on then fell naturally just before their second birthday with gorgeous DS2.

Hi Kellie. Just wanted to say lots of luck with your treatment smile I'm in a very similar position - haven't ovulated in ages and am starting 3rd cycle of clomid (150mg) on Monday with help from progesterone. These forums help no end and there seems to be lots of happy stories recently which really helps on low days smile
Good luck keep us posted x

Hii kellie91, my husband & I had unexplained infertility. My periods were irregular too. on second dose of clomid we got our BFP! our dd is now 10 months. we really thought we would be going down the I've route! as another poster said these forums really help!
oddly enough my periods are now really regular!
Hope you get your BFP really soon. X

HappyHalloweenMotherFucker Sat 13-Oct-12 23:43:55

Both my DC were conceived with the aid of clomid

Good luck x

leon1234 Sun 14-Oct-12 11:04:57

kellie91, I have been in ur shoes. I have used clomid . u can use for up to 6 months. in the mean time u can take zinc and
co enzyme which is needed for all enzyme activity. I did all of this . it worked for me. all the best.

BustyStClaire Sun 14-Oct-12 11:07:59

Clomid worked for me first cycle, and was able to concieve third without it!

raspberrytipple Sun 14-Oct-12 11:22:49

Hi, hope you don't mind me jumping on this thread but I have my next appointment on Tuesday and clomid or IVF are likely to be suggested. We have unexplained fertility. My periods are slightly irregular (between 29-35 days) but I do ovulate so I'm just wondering if its worth trying clomid or going straight to IVF? I really don't know which way to go. We have been trying just over three years

leon1234 Sun 14-Oct-12 12:01:21

raspberrytipple ,remember one step at a time, clomid will be tried for 6 months before ivf

AttilaTheMeerkat Sun 14-Oct-12 14:20:42


If you have been ttc for three years without success it is possible that the fertility problem could equally lie with both of you.

Unexplained is actually no diagnosis at all; it means that they have basically failed to find out what is wrong. It is also sometimes given to couples when they have not been adequately investigated in terms of fertility investigations.

What tests have both of you have had done to date (some tests get missed off), any test result over 6 months old should be discounted.

I would ask them lots of questions, its a huge leap from clomid to IVF.

I would also consider seeking a second opinion, it is fair to say that some fertility units are far better than others.
