I am currently waiting to see if i am allowed clomid as i am only 23, was wondering if anyone else my age was on it through the NHS.
Guess i will have to go private if they say no so if anyone knows how much it costs and what the procedure is i would also like to hear from them.

Just waiting is doing my head in, just so desperate to get clomid and hope it works.

Good luck to everyone else trying.x

My sister in law was prescribed clomid on NHS when she was 22. She conceived within 3 months of taking it.
I myself have just started on clomid last month although I am 29. However I am 3 days late, so fingers crossed!!!

Good luck to you.

Thanks for the support Milesysgirl and Zoey29, nice to hear success stories.

Zoey29 - when will you do a test? Are you normally regular on the clomid?

Let me know how you get on

am due to take it next month, am 40 and got it on nhs, only waited 6 weeks for gyny

Natty1806 · 25/04/2006 08:23


that was not too long then, i was told by GP to chase him if i have not heard anything after 4 so i will keep 6 weeks in my mind now, as i am starting to stress about it.

Good luck -let me know how it goes.

I am 35, on clomid ( 4th month). Gyne app took 6 weeks to first app, that app was just a nurse taking down all my history, weight, blood, and of course, sperm sample from DH. (that was august 2005) Next app was Dec 2005 saw the Mr Cheif !! told me i need a Lapperoscopy, but take clomid in the meantime.... 6 months wait for op... (Still waiting -40 people ahead of me )

So Good Luck, and keep chasing the hospital for app... xXx

hi, how long were you all trying before you were refer for treatment? also do any of you have problems that you already knew about which makes ttc more difficult? x

Natty1806 · 29/04/2006 16:52


I have been trying since July 05 did not know of any problems, doctor had mentioned that if i did not have a period 6 months after finishing the pill then i should go and see him. I have had a few periods but they are so far apart i went to see him and he started some inital tests, now just waiting to get the okay to start clomid from the local fertility clinic.
How long have you been trying? Any problems that you know of?
