BFP with Clomid 50mg, cd 5-9 & PCOS

My name is Cheryl and my husband and I had been trying to get pregnant for about a year. We had tried to conceive naturally for while and then my husband suggested we get tested. My husband’s tests came back normal whereas mine came back with hormone level issues, possible PCOS. Tested to see if I was ovulating and it looked like I wasn’t.

I was put on Clomid 50mg, days 5-9, for the first time this cycle. I used fertilityfriend.com to chart my temps and it looked like I ovulated cd18. I had tried the OPKs but they never showed a surge. Blood work done at cd23 showed that I did indeed ovulate. As the month went along I had ovulation type pains and cramps that were off and on for about a week, then it went away. I started feeling little changes in my body such as the enlarged breasts and the frequent urination but it was too soon to test, so I kept being optimistic and waited. I finally took and HPT on cd29 and it was positive, faint but positive. I was scared because I thought that it was just too much to hope for on the first try.

I tested a couple more times the following day and finally went in for a blood test on cd30. It came back the next day as POSITIVE!! This also happened to be a day before our anniversary so it was an awesome present to say the least. I am now 6 weeks pregnant and so thankful for my little miracle. As for the Clomid I had very little side effects, mainly hot flashes in the night. It did the trick for ovulation. The only other thing we did differently is use Preseed for the first time. Thanks again to all the ladies who contributed their stories. It was very encouraging to read them all. Good luck and baby dust to all!!!

BFP the Break Cycle before IVF

My husband and I have a beautiful daughter, born July 1997, for the last 6 years we have been TTC #2, with no luck. I have polycystic ovaries and had put a lot of weight on. Last February 2004. I was given Metformin in order to help me lose a lot of excess weight I had. To date I have lost 3 stone (42llb).

So after 6 years, 3 years of Clomid (on & off), we decided to embark on IVF. Our 1st consultation was on 8th June 2005. BUT GUESS WHAT:- WE FOUND OUT WERE PREGNANT ON 6th JUNE 2005. (2 days BEFORE our IVF consult!!!!)

We still cant believe it, I have done 8 pregnancy tests and had it confirmed by the doctor, we are still in shock at the moment. My fertility doctor has asked us to come in for a scan on 27th June 2005, to check that things are alright. (I pray they are).

I think the reason that this has happened is because the last month before IVF, I decided that there was no way we would get pregnant on the last month before IVF. Also trying for 6 years, there was just no way it would happen.

Well I couldnt have been more wrong.

I hope that I can give hope to the many other women like me out there.

Good luck to you all.

BFP with 150mg Clomid, cd 3-7 & PCOS

Still in shock after testing BFP this morning on 13DPO.

Came off BCP after 3 years in August 2004, and had 3 or 4 normal periods, which then stopped entirely. After many blood tests and eventually having to pay to see a private consultant, i was diagnosed with PCOS due to abnormal hormone levels (high FSH:LH ratio, high testosterone and high prolactin).
Was given Clomid and told to take 50mg days 3-7. I also had bloods taken on days 21 and 28 to check progesterone levels to see if the Clomid had made me O.
After round 1, there was no O at all.
Round 2 was 100mg on days 3-7. Again, O.

I was absolutely devastated as I had such high hopes for Clomid after hearing of all the BFPs on this site. My doc told me that I was probably Clomid resistant and said i could do one more round at 150mg days 3-7, and then switch to Tamoxifen.
Round 3 showed no ) by day 21 with a progesterone of less than 1, so I assumed that my day 28 would be the same.
I phoned for the results last week, and was astounded when the nurse said that the levels were over 30.
I was thrilled to even O, but had no hope of a BFP since my DH was out of town for 5 days around this time and so thought that our timing was well off. Because i was so sure that Clomid was not working, I even stopped taking my temp and so have no idea when I actually O although it must have been somewhere between day 21 and day 28 based on bloods. This morning, I found a HPT in my bathroom which I forgot I had, and even though I have been trying to wait until after 14DPO, I thought I would just take it for a laugh.
I nearly fainted when it came up BFP!
I wrote 'BABY' on my stomach with an arrow pointing downwards and went in to DH who was still in bed, and asked him to lift up my Tshirt. He was over the moon.

So, signs and symptoms over the last week.....
- For the last 4 or 5 days, I have been having weird cramping pains in my uterus? and ovaries?, sort of quite sharp and stabbing.
- Last night, I did think my labia (TMI) looked a bit darker and swollen.
- CP has been low and firm and closed for days.
- Not much CM to speak of but the stuff i have had is yellowish and thick.
- Boobs a tiny bit sore but probably wouldn't have noticed it if I had not been looking for this. Nipples also a bit sensitive.
- I am a vet nurse, and at work, was cleaning out a poopy dog kennel and started to gag at the smell even though I am usually not phased at all by poo, blood or anything else. Also started to gag at the smell of cat food and when cleaning out my own cats litter boxes.
- One incident of pins and needles in my right wrist and fingers which lasted about 2 minutes.
- Achy feeling in my groin and area where my legs join on to body, kind of dull and crampy.

That's all I can think of just now.
Still in shock.
Thank you God.
