    Default Starting Clomid

    DH and I have been TTC for around 5 years now (already has 6 yo DS). Last week I had hysteroscopy and laparoscopy where GYN removed loads of adhesions and a large cyst and I am going for an HSG this friday to make sure tubes are still open, sorry if tmi. I have PCOS and take metformin and aldactone and will be taking clomid next cycle (have no idea when that will be but hopefully in about 3 weeks). Has anyone got a similar history and can let me know how clomid has affected you - I have heard some horror stories about side effects and it is making me nervous about taking it but GYN said the next 3 months will be the best time for me to conceive so we are doing everything we can to optimise that 3 months!!

    Hi HappyKat,
    Welcome to the wonderful world of clomid.
    The procedures you've had and the HSG can help increase fertility so fingers crossed this is the case for you.
    I have pcos and am on high dose clomid 200mg per day and metformin 1500mg ttc #4. My signature is a testament to the miracle of clomid. With DD1 clomid didn't work so had to go onto injectable hormones but the rest were clomid pg's. I've had 2 hsg's and I've lost count how many dildo cams I've had over the years. DH reckons I have more intimacy with it than him.....lol

    There is a clomid support thread that you may be interested in. There are a lovely bunch of ladies going thru the same probs and medications.

    Hello this is my first time on here. So im totally new but thought I would share my story and would love to hear anybodys opinion. I am 29 and TTC TO concieve for 10 months. I was diagnosed with PCOS 7 months ago after failing to have regular periods after coming off the pill. Anywho, I have just started my first round of Provera (to induce a bleed) and Clomid days 2-6. On day 12 I went for US and it showed a 20mm follicle! I was happy about this, but I have failed to have a + opk since then. Now CD 25. Does this mean this month is highly unlikely to work if I am not ovulating? Is this common to produce follicle but not ovulate? Thanks would appreciate any help!

    TTC -DEC12
    FEB 13 - Dx PCOS/COMMENCED METFORMING 3000MG DAILY
    JULY - HSG, SEMEN ANALYSIS - both fine
    AUG - COMMENCED PROVERA/CLOMID 50MG 2-6
    21 day - 20MM FOLLICLE. .... still to get a +opk



    Babydust to everyone trying out there
