I have a 5 year old daughter that took a year to conceive, and a 2 1/2 year old son who took three months to conceive.
I was officially diagnosed with PCOS 2 years ago with bloodwork and excess follicles on two different ultrasounds (years apart).
I just had a D&C to remove 2 polpys in my endometrial lining and now my OB/GYN gave me the go-ahead to start Clomid!!! I just have to wait for my period now and my physician told me to call on Day 1 of my period and then she will call the prescription in and she wants me to take it on days 5-9 and then start babydancing every other day from day 12 to 22. She didn't say she wanted to follow up or anything, just that I should call on Cycle day 34 if no period came, or if I get my period after the month, to make an appointment with what to do next. She didn't tell me what dosage she is going to start me out on either. I'm so excited!! I know it is a really small chance, but I am hoping for twins so it can potentially be my last pregnancy since it isn't easy for me to get pregnant. Any success stories or advice???View Thread
I am 23 years old, and last August I became pregnant for the first time in my life. My fiance and I had been trying for three years, and after going to the doctor many times, we figured out that I did not ovulate. My periods are so irregular, that I had to take medicine to induce my period. I had a misscairage at 5 and a half weeks. We decided it was time to concieve again, and I took medicine to induce my period. I started clomid on June 7th, and finished it on June 11th. It has now been about a week, and I think I am ovulating. I am having the stings and the discharge, and I have been having sex every day. They started me on 50 mgs, even though the last time I got pregnant it was on 100mg. I definitely think that I am ovulating... is it too soon? and do you think I can get pregnant off of 50mg even though last time it took 100mgs?View Thread
Is clomid making anyone else crazy?? I am very moody, insecure, and jealous since 2 rounds! I'm angry both when I'm around my as well as when we aren't, then I just send mean texts. When does this go away??View Thread
I've just completed my first round of clomid (50 mg) I called to inform my doctor that I had completed days 5-9 and what happens next, blood work when next menstrual cycle comes around to see if would ovulate? She said no come back in a year, "everything is fine". How does she know that "everything is fine" WITHOUT doing blood work & follow up appointments? The whole purpose of me starting clomid is due to the fact that I found not ovulate therefore not able to conceive I feel like my doctor/Gyn gives me the run around. I'm currently looking for a new Doctor that will help me and answer my questions honestly. What usually happens AFTER first round of clomid, ladies what has been your experience?View Thread
I am on my first round of clomid. I never ovulated after going off of birth control pills and blood tests confirmed annovulation. I took 50 mg of clomid on days 5-9. I went in for my day 12 ultrasound and I had numerous follicles but they were all under 1mm. Has anyone else experienced such small follicles? I'd had an ultrasound previously before even starting clomid and I had a lot of small follicles at that time. They tested my testosterone levels to see if I had PCOS and potentially needed metaforin. My testosterone levels were normal so they did not prescribe metaforin. I'm hoping my follicles were so smal simply because my dosgae was low but I'm also worried I could be clomid resistant. Has anyone else had follicles under 1 mm their first round with success later? I'm pretty bummed. I really thought clomid was going to help me ovulate.View Thread
We have been ttc for over 3 yrs now. I decided to go see a endo. I never have periods and my endo prescribed me to take clomid 3x a week and 1500 mg of metformin daily. Everywhere I read online I dont see anyone else taking it this way. anywho since I never have periods I asked my dr to call in provera and he did. I was given provera may 4th-14th. I got af on may 20th and (instead of taking the clomid 3x a week every week like my doctor said) just took it on the 23rd-27th, this is my first try and im praying it works as i am hoping to conceive. I also have PCOS My question is has anyone else been given it this way. it seemed strange and since its so difficult to get him on the phone and i dont have an appt for a while i decided to take it the way everyone else is. Also is it safe to take provera for months at a time i read somewhere of a women doing this and i didnt think it was safe.View Thread
Hello ttc ladies, I'm 26yrs.old..
I'm going for my second rund of clomid tomorrow..it's the third day of my cycle..
I took clomid and pregnyl last month.. I ovulated and the doctor found 3mature eggs, but I don't know why af shows yesterday.. I literally cried for two days.. So frustrating.. I thought I was pregnant because I felt every symptoms but I guess my body or the meds just tricked me that I was.. I was diagnosed with mild pcos years ago..
Anyone inspiring advice pls???View Thread
I frequented these boards in 2011-12. I don't know if there's anyone here anymore from that time. I hope not. I hope they've all moved on and are holding their babies by now.
I've been through the infertility gamut. S/A, HSG, U/S are all good. I was diagnosed with PCOS. I'm on 2000mg of Metformin and am currently on the pill. Clomid is not effective. We successfully got pregnant in 2012 and miscarried shortly after. After 2 1/2 years of TTC, the blow of a m/c and with the pending adoption of DS (almost 4 now), we decided to take a break.
The baby bug is back in full force. I plan on starting TTC again in the next month or two. The plan was originally to start in August, but I don't know if I can hold out that long. I'm putting in a call to my RE today to see what they need to get us going again.
This board and the support of the ladies here last time around was the only thing that kept me sane. I look forward to chatting with you all.View Thread
