Starting Clomid next week

Postby Danae921 » Sun Jun 08, 2014 7:52 am

I'm starting my first round of Clomid next week. I'm extremely excited and nervous. My doc is having me start the pills on CD 2. I was wondering if there is a schedule of sorts as to what happens once you start taking. Doc said start taking and then take it til cd 10. Just looking for a little extra insight. THANKS!!

What dose are you starting on? I had three months on 50mg and now this is my second cycle on the 100mg. You are taking it from CD 2-10? I thought usually they only order it for 5 days. I take mine CD 5-9 and was told to BD every other day for at least two weeks. The 50mg dose didn't change anything with my cycle, had my normal CD 28. The first month with 100mg though extended my cycle to 39 days and I ovulated a lot later than normal as well. So far it looks as though it will be the same with this cycle as I should be ovulating CD towards the end of the weekened/beginning of next week. I have read you ovulate about 10 days after the last dose taken. I didn't have any side effects of the Clomid though and take mine in the mornings. Goodluck to you!

Alright. Started my clomid this morning! Days 2-7 (I don't know where I got 10) so from the 14th-18th. Then on July 3rd I go for the 21 day progesterone test. Fingers crossed that come July 11th I don't have a visit from AF!

KMFX for ya! AF should be expected to arrive for me that week as well if it extends my cycle to 39days again. Which I am thinking it will be a longer cycle again since I think I should ovulate within the next 2-3days. I've read on Clomid you will usually ovulate about 9-10 days after the last pill so should be here soon! Hoping Clomid/Progesterone works its magic for you this cycle!

Hey ladies. Do you mind if I join your thread please? I started clomid yesterday (18th June) so not far behind. I'm starting without knowing cycle day due to a lack of AF but dr is hopeful it will kick start things and from next cycle I'll start on cd2. Any side affects for you ladies so far? x

I started on 3 cycles with 50mg, no side effects and I took it in the morning. I have now taken 2 cycles on 100mg, again taken in the mornings and still no side effects. Last cycle with the 100mg it extended my cycle from its normal 28 days to 39 days. And I think this cycle will be at least 32 days based on ovulation day. Goodluck with starting clomid!

Hey ladies how are you doing?? I had a terrible night, yesterday was day 5 on clomid and I woke up in the night a few times with serious hot sweats, it was awful! I now know what my mum means when she says she has a tropical moment!! Up til now I have been having amazing sleeps so it's thrown me off. Last pill tonight then it's just a wait and hope for a period (then next cycle hopefully I'll ovulate!) :babydustg: xx
