    I don't think GPs are supposed to prescribe clomid? What doses have you been taking?

    Completely agree - I tried Clomid for 5 months and was unsuccessful and I have a feeling it was to do with the side effects... I was incredibly dry around the time of O and pre seed didn't seem to help...

    Doctor prescribed me Femara and explained it was much more gentler. Admittedly I never got a chance to try it as the month I planned to start I found out I was pregnant...

    Clomid has worked for me fine twice before... but I am a few years older now, so guess there is no guarantee it will still work the same way. I think I just took it for granted that it would.
    Because we already have children DH is not keen on anything else, so unless clomid works, that is it for me. I still feel like I want another baby though... but am very grateful for the ones I have.
    I do ovulate on my own but not every month, and without clomid, my cycles are crazy and irregular, with clomid they are predictable and it is so much easier to time.

    @Rachel3072 a GP isn't actually allowed to prescribe clomid only an FS can unfortunately.

    Actually a GP who has obstetric privileges CAN prescribe clomid. Mine can and does. He is a GP but delivers babies, but he is not an obstetrician or a specialist.

    Okay that makes sense but most GPS can't thats all. I've never heard of a gp with ob privileges so you find out something new everyday

    I live in country victoria... maybe it is some sort of exemption, who knows. But he definitely is the local GP and he also delivers babies, nearly all the babies in my town.

    These are the letters after his name, I copied and pasted... not sure what they mean though. M. B., C.H.B., M.R.C.G.P., D.R.C.O.G. (UK), Family Planning Certificate.

    Hey peeps,
    I'm on day 2 of my first cycle of clomid and I just started bleeding but now it looks like brown spotting? Is this like a normal side effect?
    I haven't had my period since Monday.
    I figure if it's still happening tomorrow I'll call my doctor

    I'm a bit confused. When did your period actually start?
