Clomid.

Hi folks.

Just started round one of Clomid last night. Apart from a pretty bad head this morning I'm feeling ok. It's a weird feeling when you really want to be pregnant but your period comes, insult to injury really, but then taking the Clomid I feel as though I've got a slightly better chance of conceiving this month. Hospital said if I do catch I have to phone them straight away and go for a scan and start Progesterone injections.

Have any of you lovely ladies gotten pregnant on Clomid?

This is our last ditch attempt before trying egg donation. Praying this will work.

No experience of clomid. In fact I didn't really know how it worked until you just posted. But wanted to say good luck! xx

I'm sorry to hear that. My problem is holding on to them once I get pregnant but I think my egg quality is poor. I'm old! Lol.

I hope you get your perfect dream this cycle. X

A friend of a friend was on clomid. She fell pregnant first month taking it but sadly baby had no heart beat at 12 week scan, they said they think it stopped around 8 weeks. She's now 6 weeks pregnant after using clomid again for around 5 months so it definitely does work. Good luck xxx

So sad to lose the first cycle but fantastic that she is pregnant again. X

Hi!

I'm waiting for AF to start my first round of clomid. I have a blood test form to have bloods done at day 21. My consultant mentioned another scan (looking at follicles I think?) again around day 21 but I haven't had that appointment through or even an invitation to the appointment like they can do. I'm thinking I'll need to call them to see if/when I need to be scanned. Do you have some further tests seeing as it's your first time? And do you have any follow up treatment considered if you do fall pregnant?

I'm so glad to have something to start on but now I'm getting closer to taking clomid my mind keeps thinking up questions! Good luck! Xxx

Hi.

This is my second day of my first cycle of Clomid. The consultant has said if I catch pregnant I have to phone the hospital straight away and go for a scan and then they will give me progesterone injections. I seem to have trouble keeping them when I catch. He thinks my best chance is egg donation but I'm giving the Clomid three cycles.

I was a little nervous taking the Clomid but bit the bullet and so far so good! Like you though I have lots of questions.

Ahh good luck! I'm glad they're ready and waiting for you if successful to try and help a pregnancy along. Unfortunately I don't have regular periods so I'm waiting for something to just happen! I'm hoping then clomid will either help with regularity if not successful on the conception front. Are you on 50mg? How soon will you test after taking clomid xxx

Hi

Yes 50mg.

I will wait until I finish the five days then start the ovulation tests and go from there.

Ahh that makes sense, let me know how you get on. I'm feeling start of some lady cramps today so I'm hoping I'll be taking my first clomid tablet soon! Xxx

I hope everything goes well for you. I did a LH test this morning out of interest and it was a positive but not as dark as the control line. Someone mentioned the tests aren't always accurate when using Clomid. I'm not sure when to start TTC then. I'm thinking frequently is a good start! Lol. X

It's funny you've just said that, I've just arrived home having driven to Boots to work and pondered over the ovulation kits. I couldn't decide on whether or not to buy any having heard mixed reviews. Please let me know how you get on! I think frequently is a good idea, but as my doctor said to me at least 1 day of rest in between to allow the sperm stock to replenish the high quality swimmers! Good luck xxx

I've tested every day the last few months and discovered I don't ovulateas early in the month as I previously though.

I agree about the day of rest, my poor Hubby!Lol. X

Yes check out my other posts! 3 years of unexplained infertility 2nd round of clomid bam twins 🙈🙈. Think it also depends on any other issues going on too. Got a good feeling for you xx

Wow! Fantastic! Congratulations.

Hubby had twin siblings and his father was a twin so with that in his genes plus the Clomid we would be more than happy with multiples! X

How did you get on with Clomid, I'm starting my first cycle every tomorrow's very nervous

Hi

I just started my second cycle tonight. Obviously I didn't manage to get pregnant last month sadly.

I was very nervous too but it's really ok. I had a few side effects but nowhere near as bad as I had imagined. I hope it goes really well for you.
