Hi nightchild and Ijjies. I'm 3rd round too.....50mg after 2 rounds of 25mg.
When I first started my FS said I'd be pregnant in 6 months....I'm slowly losing hope. I have to get my tubes tested if this month doesn't work. And hubby has to get re-tested even though his results were fine first test.
It's just all so stressful and I often think 'why me'.
I'm also trying pre-seed this month, just for a change!
Are you two getting scanned? How many follicles are you getting?
for everyone on this thread!
Results 21 to 30 of 835

I had my second month with u/s at CD 11 with bloods at CD 21 this month (clomid 50mg), i get my results early next week, i've been at the point this month where it's all the end. DH and i had a massive fight and broke up and then got back together and everything feels like hell. I've been really tired the last few days and feeling ill and ofcourse in the back of my mind the ''what if'' have sprung up!
We have made a descision that we are going to keep TTC with clomid until i see my FS again in november and then talk to him about our options, if they are IUI/IVF then we're going to have a break for a while.

Your FS really shouldn't have been making promises like that. I'm also surprised they didn't get you to do a hysterosalpingography (HSG) as one of the initial steps to assess your uterus and fallopian tubes. It's uncomfortable, but nothing particularly stressful when I had mine.
My clinic isn't scanning me for follicles. Just prescribing me with clomid and getting me to do the progesterone blood tests. The tests confirm I am ovulating... just rather late.

Well I'm surprised your clinic isn't doing scans. Far more irresponsible than mine not ordering invasive tests after being off the pill for 3 months.

I have been getting scaned, I thought they all did that? I take the clomid day 5-9 and then scan around day 12. Depending on how follicle is looking i either come back in a day or two or get a trigger injection then and there. Then I have the BT a week later to check if i O'd. I have been getting only one follicle each time.
I'm starting my third cycle now. But I'm only counting the successful ones. When I first went they started me on half a tablet (25mg) then when that showed after a couple of u/s no results they put me straight up to 50mg and then 75mg. I didn't have to wait out the whole cycle thankfully- they just kept track with the u/s. Then they put me up to 100mg and I've completed two full cycles on that.
My DH hasn't had any tests done yet, because we knew I had the problems we were told with the kickstart to my cycle that should be all we need. They asked DH lots of questions and weren't concerned about his side. BUT after this last cycle I'm thinking of asking if he can be. I would hate to have gone through all this and then find out there is an issue on his side as well.
Hope everyone is going well. I've been a bit down the last few days. There are babies all around me and I have AF. All very depressing. But my DH bought me some beautiful flowers on Friday to cheer me up.

I'm suprised you have to wait so long to see your specialist?? I see mine every cycle on around day 12 to check the follicle with u/s and then again a couple of days later if need be and in the meantime if something happens or I''m unsure about something I call and leave a msg and he calls me back.
November would seem like a lifetime!
Good luck! Hope it works out.

Yay! Congrats silentrockfaery! That is fantastic news! I wasn't quick enough to see your chart. You have given me hope that a BFP can happen first go on clomid. All the best for a healthy pregnancy!
Ainsleyp - I have had no side effects on 100mg of clomid. I am CD 12 today. We had the option to have an us on day12/13 and the ovidrel injection but we opted not to this cycle. So we are dtd every 2nd day until cd20 (ideally should be up to cd24 but DH is going away). Can I ask how long you have been TTC? I think we all go through the 'why me' stage. Fingers crossed your BFP is not too far away.
Ijjies - it would be a good idea to get DH checked out too just for peace of mind. I know how you feel with being down when AF arrives and it seems like there is pregnant women everywhere. Fingers crossed its our turn very soon!
C2p08 - sorry you are having a hard time lately, I hope everything works out for the best for you and dh
I am curious as to why we all start on different doses... does anyone know?
