I am currently ttc #2 and have just started my first round of Clomid. Im getting lots of help and advice of the conception threads but just wondered if anyone had any success stories they could share with me to make me more positive.
Thanks ladies, it really helps to hear it has worked for so many, the doc seems to think it is all we need as DH is fine and im ok apart from the fact of not ovulating very often so fingers crossesd! x
I'm currently 22 wks pregnant with identical twins conceived on cycle 1 of clomid (despite being told not to expect anything in the first few months as I wasn't ovulating at all). We had been trying for nearly 2 years. I fell pregnant with DS (now 3) first month unassisted so I had secondary infertility.
I'm 17 weeks pregnant with our little Clomid baby (just the one though!). Was really down about our chances beforehand as had been trying for ages (and I have PCOS, with cycles up to 7 months long) but the Clomid worked first cycle, on the lowest dose - 50mg.
These stories are great thankyou, feel much more positive now!
Thanks for the luck donandpea, and good luck for your pregnancy!
Weegle - Oh my God!! Your story is freakily similar to mine! I had my DS (3 in a month) the 1st month me and my DP were together, without even trying and with no help so I too have secondary infertility, been ttc for nearly 2 years too and not ovulating so hopefully I will be just as successful
Pinkypanther - Congrats with the pg! Im on 50mg so fingers crossed!
Can i ask a personal question.. how often did you DTD whilst on the clomid, the doc said not every day but didnt really say how often?
The leaflet the Hospital gave us with the Clomid said to DTD every 2 days, from Cycle Day (CD) 10 until CD 20 - so that's pretty much what we did! I think I caught nearer CD 20 than CD 10 though, and if I was doing it again I'd keep going until maybe CD 28 just to make sure.
I had absolutely no side effects whatsoever which was why I was sure it hadn't worked. A lot of people recommend taking it at night though, so any side effects take place whilst you're asleep...
I had stormer headaches - gee, thinking back they were awful. And I felt angry a lot . Oh and hot sweats in the night. I was so grateful to only be on one cycle of 50mg!
It was literally like my body just needed a helping hand getting kick started. And we too were advised every other day around the middle of the cycle but due to life events we managed it Day 8, Day 10 and then not till Day 17 - so technically we messed up. I thought there was no way I could be pregnant - so I was a little shocked to say the least! I think it was the Day 10 'event' that led to conception as we are expecting girls, but who knows?
Lol you defo sound like me Weegle! I have had a killer headache the last 2 days and I am so angry for no reason but the hot flushes have been my personal favourite (NOT) i now sympathise with my menopausal mum!
Wow you were very good to do it at the right time, think we will prob do it every other day for most of the cycle in the hope that we will catch it and that we are not too tired lol! x
