Evening smile

So today I officially joined the Clomid club. Day 21 blood came back as progesterone 30 which our dr Says is a little too low.
I’m been put on 50mg of Clomid from day 2-6 of my cycle. Iv got 3 months worth then going back for a review.

Has anyone has any success on a similar dose? And also, what progesterone level should I be aiming for on day 21?

Thanks smile

Yes I was also put on Clomid 50mg, I conceived on month 3 and now have a lovely DD. I believe my progesterone level was 62 or thereabouts.

Thanks for your reply NC.

Firstly congratulations smile

Was the 62 level before you went on the Clomid or afterwards?

Thanks smile the 62 was my level the first month I was on clomid.

Do you kinda me asking what it was before the Clomid?

I don’t know ‘above what number’ I’m aiming for! hmm

Emily I had the same conversation with my gp today. My d23 progesterone was only 12 which is definitely low. It's too late to start Clomid this cycle so I'll start it next cycle but I think she mentioned a dose of 150 which is higher than you. Apparently it works in approx 80% of people

I took 50mg of clo mid for 6 months. The result is now a wonderful 12 year old . It was my last cycle that worked, just as I was giving up.

Good luck

Good luck Dolwar, hopefully BFP for both of us!

I have had no side effects so far so it seems way enough to take. Just had my last tablet for this round today smile
Hopefully my day 21 result will be higher now.

I’ve been on clomid twice. First time I conceived at 50mcg and the second took over 7 months and finally 150mcg before I could get a viable egg.

It all depends!

How long did it take on the 50 Horton?

I’m on CD 9 so finished my first round. My hormones are CRAZY! I cried four times yesterday. Ha ha.

Do you remember your progesterone numbers by any chance?

Last round of 150mg is 9 weeks old

I was prescribed Clomid 50mg and got pregnant on my second round, I am now 32 weeks pregnant. I never had my progesterone level measured though so cant help you there! x

Aabida, congrats on falling pregnant so early on using Clomid! were you ovulating before you took the Clomid? I already sometimes ovulate but apparently Clomid will make this more consistent x

So here's the long story...

I have PCOS and got diagnosed at 17 (I'm 31 now) I've never ever had regular periods in my life - maybe one or two a year at best. I was taking metformin 3x a day for a few years from 2015 until I got pregnant, which really helped with weight loss and managing PCOS symptoms but didn't make my cycles regular.

In April/May 2016 I started Clomid and took two rounds but didn't get pregnant and decided to stop trying as I was in a bit of a transition at work.

I had to take norethisterone to prompt a bleed prior to taking Clomid day 2 of AF. HOWEVER, because of some medical wizadry the Clomid somehow "kick started" my ovaries and I began to have regular periods literally 28-32 day cycles for a whole year until I decided to take Clomid again April 2017 this year. By May I was pregnant.

I'm not sure if I was ovulating during the year I had regular periods as my hubs and I were having unprotected sex and I didn't get pregnant - however we were long-distance due to my work so only seeing each other one weekend a month. (hence why I stopped the clomid as didn't want to waste it!) So not sure if I was ovulating or not.

I am currently on metformin 3x a day. Nothings happened, nothing at all has changed scince I started taking it in October. Meant to be using it for 6 months then going back to GP but tempted to back earlier and ask for clomid!! What had you all done up to the point you was offered clomid? Had you tried metformin or something else before or did you just go straight in for the clomid? It was never suggested for me, I had been back and forth to GP for a while for lots of blood tests, and a transvaginal scan at the hospital which finally confirmed PCOS... GP mentioned a few things, one being metformin, another to take the pill and then stop taking it to trick a period into coming, and the other was laser on the ovaries!!! What!!! So I took the metformin option but it's doing nothing and it's making me sad sad
