I was on clomid for 7 months, I only had bloods the first month and it showed I o'd so my fs just let it takes it course. After 5 months of bfn's I decided to take to bull by the horns and head back to the fs to request I do cycle monitoring. One of my other friends did the cycle monitoring and fell the second month. The only problem for me is I had to go through a fertility clinic and it cost us $400 per cycle for them to monitor me, that didn't include any meds! We gave ourselves a max of 3 monitoring cycles and then decided we would look at Ivf. Luckily we only had to do one month of monitoring (which was unsuccessful) but it gave us an indicator of when I was O'Ing which was almost 5 days before I thought I was (I have a bit longer cycle than normal) The next month we decided to try ourselves with the information we gained from the monitoring while still on the clomid. We dtd every second day from cycle day 9, I also did 2 rounds of acupuncture and wouldn't you know it it worked! I found the opk's weren't very clear/effective for me and the problem also was that I never have any o symptoms and apparently clomid dries your cm up! Good luck to all you ladies. I know how stressful trying to conceive is, hoping you all get your bfn's real soon!!!

I had FS app today for cd14 ultrasound and there are no eggies. So increasing from 25-100 Clomid and starting Provera pending today's blood test as my lining is too thick already so she wants me to start again. If nothing then I start injections.
So far haven't cried but feel a big reality check. I think the naive part of me thought I was imagining having fertility issues and Clomid was a sure thing. But not out of options so not giving up yet but boy is the a ****ty ride.
Hope everyone else is traveling ok xo
AF due tomorrow & I'm not feeling positive.... Think I might take a break. Next step is most probably IVF, not happy Jan bit over it ATM
