Ive got a couple questions for you ladies! Im trying to get my hopes back up after another :bfn: Clomid cycle!

On what Cycle did you get your BFP?

What where you taking besides the Clomid the month you got your BFP? (including supplements, vitamins, otc's, and prescriptions)

What did you do different the month you finally got your BFP? (please tell even if it was funny or weird, we are desperate and will try anything, and at the very least we will get a good laugh and we all know we need it when TTC) lol :D

Congratulations to you all and to those of us still TTC good luck and baby dust to all!

Fingers crossed we get our :bfp: soon!!!!!

TTC our first child since August 2011 but havent used any BC since July 2009

First round of Clomid August 2011
Started Prometrium (to thicken my lining) w/ Clomid November 2011

I ovulate on my own but my OB/GYN wanted to try Clomid before he sent me off to an RE since insurance wont cover it.
And DH's SA was way above the norm! So everything is good there! lol

Unpatiently waiting for that BFP!!!! lol :D

Firstly, Congratulations on all your BFPs - you are living proof that Clomid works! I will you all a healthy and happy 9 months and a beautiful bouncing baby at the end of it all.

I am starting my 1st round of Clomid this cycle, I am on the 3rd pill today and have been having bloating/gas, tender boobies and ovary twinges since pill 1...should I be concerned about any of these side effects as seems not many of you have experienced any side effects?

My background is, I have been TTC for 7 months, I have PCOS and a short LP or about 8-9 days, also my lining is too thin.

I am currently on Metformin 1500mg and Clomid 50mg (days 2-6). Just wondered if anyone had any success stories of Clomid lengthening their LP or will I need to Prometrium as well?

did you get a 7 dpo / cd 21 progesterone draw ? what was your number ? No, but using progesterone suppositories

when did you get your bfp ? 10DPO/didn't believe it til 11DPO...the number of tests I have taken in the last 24 hours is shameful.

side effects from the clomid ? Hot flashes, anxiety

do you have a chart we can look at ? No, sorry.

The only thing different we did this month was use Preseed both times we BDed. I honestly was convinced we didn't get it this month, and was preparing myself for a 3 month break from TTC!

Congratulations! I am so pleased for you!

You have given me hope that Clomid works, I am on my second cycle now and hoping it works like it did for you.

Did you have the trigger to make you O or do you O on your own? I had my blood done to check prog last cycle and the doctor said it was too low to have O'd...

I did do the Ovidrel trigger on CD14. I do not have progesterone draws because I do monitoring through my fertility clinic with transvaginal ultrasounds and lab work.

Thanks for this hun, I am going to ask for the trigger this cycle too - see if that helps me.

So so pleased for you - congratulations!

I don't think the trigger is an option unless you're having monitoring. It's pretty dangerous to do if you're not 100% sure its the right time to use it.

I am being monitored with u/s and blood tests by a private RE and he has mentioned he may use the Pregnyl trigger this cycle, but you saying it worked for you - have pushed me to get him to use it if the time is right.

Did you have follie size check and lining check? Do you remember what the results were at all pls?

Thanks for this, really helpful! Last time my follicle was 24mm but my lining was only 7.3mm - he said that was fine but I think it should be thicker really.
