Hi girls I'd love to join the group.
After almost 2 years of trying and lots of tests I have found out I'm not ovulating. So my gyno has given me a script for clomid for next month as I'm too far along in this cycle.
So I hope you don't mind my questions..... how does clomid actually work? I know it's meant to stimulate the follies but by my bloods, OPK's and u/s I have lots of follies and my LH is getting nice and high, I'm just not releasing the egg. Does it just grow the follies or help the release too? All my hormones are fine by CD21 bloods showed a progest count of 6 which the gyno said means I didn't ovulate.
Do you all only take it 5 days? He told me CD2-7?
What is the cost and is it PBS?

Bc I'm seeing a gyno, not a FS it won't be monitored cycles. He gave me a script for 3 cycles and said see you in 3 months. I'm feeling less confident now, that my follies are developing and my LH is nice and high, and that the clomid isn't going to work.

The u/s showed "multiple" (he didn't say how many) follies on my left ovary. he says bc I'm not ovulating by still growing the follies I have lots from previous months but bloods don't show PCOS.
I got my 2nd OPK surge on CD19 last month, how long does it take for progesterone to increase after o? FF showed I ovulated, so maybe considering it was only 2 days later that why? either way I believe I need to be on it as most months I get surges that last for a week, or a week of almost but no surge, or multiple surges. So clearly there is something going on with ovulation.
At lease I know my tubes are clear, nothing structurally wrong, no endo, no fibroids. A normal lining.
I'm feeling so much more upbeat now. I had come to the point of being on the verge of giving up....

Hi ladies, today I am CD 32 and still no AF, my last home preg test yesterday was still negative. Dr has given me a form for a blood test if AF hasn't arrived by tomorrow...it's so frustrating!!!!! I just want a positive test OR AF to show...I hate limbo land ...maybe I just ovulated late that's why no AF yet.

i usually take clomid from day 1-5 or days 2-6. I got confused with clomid because I read the leaflet but then I left it as I figured my specialist knows what he's doing.
Just recently I had my clomid cycle with a trigger shot to release my egg. Then I had IUI.
Everyone is different some are successful just on clomid and others aren't.
MU don't think I ovulated in my own either. 50mg of clomid didn't work on me so I went to 100mg which blood tests showed that I ovulated. But for some reason I still wasn't falling pregnant and I think it was my acidity level killing off the sperm before it could even make it to the egg.

Hope it's okay if I join in. I just got my script for clomid today and after 17 months trying I hope this works. My doc prescribed 50mg twice a day.... Does this sound right?? Would that mean I am starting at 100mg?? Good luck everyone
