    Hi ladies! Had my post clomid ultrasound this morning (cd13) and as I expected I had already ovulated as recently as early this morning. I had a positive opk yesterday and also some twinges this morning. Mother Nature was too quick this cycle so no need for the trigger. Back on progesterone for 12 days starting Monday and then wait and see again.

    FS would like me to go to IVF in the new year if this is a bust. Hoping this last attempt works.

    I think I'll just keep testing every day until it gets darker- I still don't feel confident about it.

    That's great your body ovulated without the trigger! Yay I have a good feeling about that. Sending lots of baby dust and luck your way xx

    It may or you could get over stimulated considering you already ovulate in your own. If you don't want to do 50, maybe try 50,50,50,75,75?

    Yeah this is what I'm worried about. I'll stick with 50mg and see how i go, hopefully I won't need to use it long.

    Morning lovely ladies! Thought I'd just update on my situation. Sadly af has arrived for me as I expected. Cycle 3 of clomid was a fail. Looks like it's IVF for me now. Wishing you all the best of luck this year x

    Hi everyone... I'm now on my FOURTH round of clomid and getting a bit desperate. I tried days 2-8, then days 3-7, then days 5-9 and this month I am on days 1-5. Clomid appears on my fertility friend chart to make me ovulate fine, about 8 days after the last pill regardless of which days I take it, but now Im getting concerned about uterine lining, due to AF getting shorter and shorter. Google can be a blessing and a curse... I have discovered from reading medical journal articles regarding clomid and uterine lining that taking it early in the cycle is better, hence days 1-5.
    I am unmonitored on clomid, I live in the country and my GP doesnt seem to know much other than is happy prescribing it, and the nearest specialist is 5 hours away.. so not really an option.

    I've learnt
    - the earlier in the cycle the better for uterine lining
    - there are 2 main ingredients in clomid, both inhibit oestrogen, one stays in your system for 6 weeks, the other doesnt, the one that does can build up and cause lining and mucous problems if you take clomid for more than 6 cycles without a break.
    - If you take it for more than the 5 days, it causes uterine lining problems because your lining needs oestrogen to thicken pre ovulation (and clomid inhibits oestrogen)
    -Those who took clomid days 5-9 were least likely to get pregnant.

    Has anyone learnt anything about clomid they can share?

    Hi Rachel, just a thought but I tried both and found Femara/Letrazole much more gentle on my body and no side effects and better at regulating my ovulation than clomid. My history is PCOS. Perhaps you could discuss with your GP whether Femara may be suitable for you? Good luck

    Thanks, I have heard of Femara. I will look into it. I have been successful on clomid before, I have 2 clomid babies. But thinking maybe this time, age is not on my side...
