    So I think it was del that mentioned clomid thins your lining? Is that right? I'm sitting here in a desperately wanting a baby mood and considering taking clomid next cycle but part of me really doesn't want to because of the side effects and the fact it hasn't worked very well for me when I've taken it in the past.

    I hear all these stories of clomid making people really regular and it's not at all how it works for me! Is there anything that can help the lining while taking clomid?

    Yes it does thin the lining. BUT it's only after lots of consecutive cycles. I did 3 months of 50mg, cycle 4 & 5 of 100mg, then cycle 6 of 50 again, which I fell on and lost.

    It only takes one cycle to regenerate. I've just done 3 months and plan to have a cycle off if this month is unsuccessful. Now I know for sure it's not me, and I'm ovulating strongly on clomid, I plan to do 3 month blocks with a month off. (I have 9 months worth of scripts)

    As long as you are having a cycle off every 3 months, you'll be fine. And interestingly, I knew my lining last year was thin as by the 6th cycle my periods were very scant, even after 3 they were getting that way. But after doing 3 cycles this time, my period is the same as it always was. So unsure if my body is used to the clomid now and maintaining the lining?

    I say go for it, just have breaks

    Hey Star, have you ever tried Letrozole? I was on it this cycle and ovulated on day 14 for the first time ever!! It worked heaps better than clomid on me personally and doesn't thin your lining. Clomid i had some cycles with no ovulation and when i did ovulate it was usually day 19 or 20. I think the commercial name of letrozole is Femara?
    Having tried both, the letrozole for me was much more effective.

    I agree with del, go for it, just take a month off every few cycles to help the lining.

    Yep. Letrozole doesn't thin the lining. Unfortunately for me, when I suggested it to my gyno I got a blank stare and he said "I haven't heard of that drug so don't feel comfortable prescribing it"

    I would not be leaving an stones unturned. You have a 50% success rate from clomid from memory? That really isn't that bad! Talk to your GP (or whoever will do the clomid) and ask for letrozole.

    No I haven't tried femara, it wasn't suggested to me. I haven't seen a fs, just a gp and gyno. I'm just not too sure on whether I bother with clomid again? My first cycle I used 50mg, ovulated on cd27, second cycle used 50mg and didn't ovulate at all, had a 67 day cycle. 3rd time I used 100mg and ovulated cd13 and I used 100mg my 4th cycle, didn't ovulate, had a 81 day cycle and then had af for 16 days :/

    My gp told me to take 50mg when I start again but I kind of feel like it's pointless? I dunno. She also told me to only have sex every 4 days but I was under the impression that if dhs sperm was fine (which it is) that sex every day/every second day would be fine?

    I just saw a gyno today for an abscess and he doesn't prescribe letrozole. He gave a really weird answer as to they don't do the monitoring required for it, but then followed up with all the negatives on clomid regarding multiples, over stimulation and lining issues.

    Maybe it's an FS thing only?

    Letrozole has worked for me with making me O each cycle. Easy on the body as well.

    I feel weird about not being monitored for an induction cycle anyway, so happy to be doing it through the FS.

    Good luck!

    Hi Ladies
    Hoping I can join here, I've been actively TTC since January 2013, not as long as many but it feels like forever.
    I'm just hoping for some opinions on today's opk, it looks positive to me :-)

    By the photo it looks neg to me. It needs to be as dark or darker than the control. Mine is usually darker when I'm set to ovulate.

    It won't be long though. Test twice a day, I suspect the pos is no more than 24hours away. Once you get the pos it's usually 12-36 hours later you ovulate.

    Isn't this positive as the test line is darker than control?
    I would say a definite surge with ovulation likely in 12-48hrs
