    You ladies can't give up hope. Even 'normal' couples can take up to 12 months to conceive. We just have a little added pressure that's all, it makes us stronger and more patient. I know that I'm pregnant so should be a little more sensitive but I have to tell you, the road was long and hard. 3 1/2 years TTC, 3 miscarriages and so many tears but if you want something bad enough, you'll keep on going. Don't give up and don't let it beat you - you've got this!

    Oh hub I hear you *hugs*... I ask myself the same question all the time. It's been so long for us as well.

    My cycles could be between 32-60 days which is very annoying. I have an elevated LH so likely my eggs are pretty crap.

    I have been given clomid to help with ovulation and egg quality but my bloods came back pretty crap and my cycle was cancelled. Unless my hormone levels go down within a week I will be put on provera to induce a period and then start over again with a higher dose of clomid. I am not very hopeful.

    I know I ovulate on my own eventually every 30-60 days or so but they want to bring ovulation forward I assume due to the effect constantly elevated LH would have to the egg(s).

    Has anyone heard about the LH - bad egg quality link before and has some input?

    Anyway I know it is very hard Hun and you should see a FS but don't put to much hope into first treatment. That was my mistake. I was all excited starting clomid, starting something new that will improve things and tried to convince myself to keep my mind off ttc as I am doing everything I can and I ended up with yet another anovulatory cycle. I know FS started me off on the lowest dose and so he should but I put my expectations too high. I thought I will just ovulate every cycle now.

    I know it's not good advice...

    I have my fingers crossed for all of you.

    Really sorry to hear you're struggling bub077. Am I right in thinking you haven't been to see a FS yet? HonestlyI'd ask for a referral to a FS, apart from anything else you'll get the mental boost of feeling proactive and taking control of your own destiny (inasmuch as anything can be 'controlled') rather than having your hopes raised and dashed every much. It really needn't be that expensive, think we paid $150 out of pocket for initial and follow up consultation, full range of bloodworm for both of us and SA for him, which in the grand scheme of things is trivial.

    Ok I have taken the next step. I am going to see Dr David Lingard next week at the Queensland fertility group QFG
    Any experiences with Dr Lingard?? I have a fertility appointment with him and he will test hubby too.

    I've no experiences with that clinic bub077, but really good news that you've made an appointment, it's a great first step.

    As for me, well I needn't have worried about OH missing O this week, I went back for blood test and ultrasound on Monday (CD17) and it was confirmed that absolutely nothing was happening. So FS has told me to take 100mg of Clomid (I was on 50mg before) for 5 days (CD17-21) and I will go back in on Friday. I was a bit unsure about having another dose of clomid in the same cycle rather than having a bleed first, but apparently it's known as the step up protocol so I guess I'll just wait and see.

    You can start the higher dose immediately so long as your estrogen is below 150. Unfortunately I am sitting at CD20 with estrogen of 250 so I need to wait for a bleed and a blood test or take provera in order to start with the increased dose. I am very frustrated by this. It just feels like I am getting nowhere while everyone around me has babies or is pregnant.

    Yesterday I went to acupuncture and they will give me Chinese herbs to take with clomid. Although they specialise in fertility I am not sure if I should take Chinese herbs with clomid. I don't want it to interfere with clomid. Any suggestions?

    I'd be hesitant to take herbs with clomid as you just don't know how they'll interact. I am also doing acupuncture (with electro acupuncture or whatever it's called) but no herbs. If in 3 months the clomid hasn't worked then I might reconsider, but for the time being I'm happy to rely on just clomid.

    omg so frustrated I have a second opinion booked with a new FS but I just went to try and book with my GP to get the referral and the amazing GP I found has left! GRRRR so frustrating when you finally find some one and then they leave! argh, I will try and call them tomorrow and see if I can find out were she went..

    Did any one else get a second opinion? I dont know if its a waste of time and energy or just stick with the FS I have who is very good...

    I'm going through a crazy period of confusion, and was wondering your thoughts currently I have not ovulated or had a proper AF in 6 months since stopping the pill. The current FS has already offered me clomid and I am in two minds as to take it now or in wait another 6months? Anythoughts of whether it is worth taking now or waiting a bit longer? I feel very confused because I know if with the clomid this could be long process?
