We're just about to start back onto clomid after having 4 pregnancies conceived naturally after our first was a clomid baby (6th 100mg dose, 2nd phase). We lost the last two and it was not possible to tell if their loss was from the PCOS or the blood clotting disorder (no chromosomal abnormalities). I read somewhere today that elevated LH can contribute to m/c for PCOS. Is there a way to combat this or any other hormone problems that people have encountered when trying to carry and having PCOS? I also have a particularly large cyst on my r.ovary atm that has been causing pain for a few months - will this hinder TTC or will the clomid take care of it?

Hi lovely ladies,
just wondering if any of you has some experience or advice about anxiety. I feel like mine is getting a bit out of control lately. I don't know if its just a normal response to the tough last 12 months I've had or something more. Is this just part of the TTC journey and/or the clomid talking ? I don't want to go overreacting but also would like to somehow get a better handle on it. TIA, Bel
Definitely have to try to develop new techniques of coping with the anxiety attacks. I personally am 24 with PCOS and TTC #1 and I have been on a round of 50mg of clomid and finished my second round of clomid so fingers crossed this round. During the first round of clomid I was stressing too much about getting pregnant and nothing happened. This time round, I made myself believe that nothing was happening again because my estrogen wasn't rising. Then went back in for another blood test on Thursday and woah!! 20mm follicle! So fingers crossed something exciting happens! But I am also ready if nothing happens. I guess what I am trying to say is to remain positive and if you feel like you can't, then surround yourself with people you love. You are not alone in this journey! 😊
Also 100mg clomid was nuts!!! I had the hot flashes and the sweats and emotional roller coaster, but definitely had to find a new coping mechanism! So when I felt as though u was going to pop- I would do some deep breathing and remember why I am here today and I would speak to my husband. You can't carry everything by yourself, have a good support base! 😊
I just want to make sure I'm not going crazy. First month of clomid I had so my side effects. This month I've been pretty good. Anyone else been the same? I don't do my bbt so I just wait for AF to turn up. I tell myself they are going to turn up then its not to upsetting when it arrives. I have my progesterone test Thursday so hopefully it's good like last month..
