Clomid TWW Buddies** September 2015 Baby Hopefuls!

Postby Tinleykayewash » Mon Nov 17, 2014 6:24 am

Hey ladies! Getting ready to start Clomid next week on days 5-9. AF should be here tomorrow, so I'll start Clomid by the end of the week. Any buddies who want to wait with me feel free to join here! My first round of Clomid did result in pregnancy but low progesterone led to miscarriage, so as soon as I get a BFP I'll be starting progesterone. Which means I'll be testing REALLY early!!

Hi... if you are on Clomid, that also thins your lining. I started Clomid for the first time this cycle and as soon as it is confirm that I O, my doctor wants me to start taking progesterone 2 days after. My last pregnancy ended due to low progesterone and I started taking progesterone after I got the BFP. My recommendation is to talk to your doctor about prior to your BFP.

I see what you're saying. I took a year off since my miscarriage, but that was the plan that was made at the time, guess I had better call before I start, so I can take it after ovulation. :) thanks!

Hi Tinley,

I’m on my Clomid cycle 1 as well after TTC for 5 cycles with no success.
I just took it CD 3-7 and today is my last day. I go in this Friday for an ultrasound.

How long have you been TTC and how many mg of Clomid are you on ? Do you ovulate on your own.

I ovulate on my own but maybe we need more targets and stronger eggs so hopefully it works for me. I’m trying to find some success stories from people that already ovulate but are taking Clomid.
Me & DH- 27
TTC for #1 since July, 2014

Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.

I ovulate on my own, I'm getting some faint tests right now on a natural cycle, so still waiting it out, but until this cycle, my temps were low and hovered around my coverline (low progesterone). So clomid helps me have a stronger ovulation and therefore more progesterone. If AF comes, I'll be starting back on 50mg, days 5-9. Last year, did the same strength and days, ovulated on day 14 and got a +hpt on 13dpo, miscarried at 8 weeks, my progesterone was a 9.4. We've NTNP for 7 years, actively tried for 1.5 years before I started Clomid, then took a year off, and now I'm ready to get back to it. I hope this is your cycle!! Just hang in there!! My first time was good for me, just wish I had gone in earlier and gotten my levels checked out as soon as I got my BFP and started Progesterone immediately. Keep me updated here on any symptoms or anything please!!

Thanks for the info Tinley!

Did you also get trigger shots or no, they just gave you a progesterone shots or suppositories?

When you got your BFP on Clomid before, how many eggs did you have?

I'm nervous because I have had a pain in my right ovary since CD 4, did you have anything like that?

Hi girls,

I just did my first round of IUI with Clomid this month. So last month i took 50mg of clomid days 3-7 and tried naturally. Nothing, but I wasn't expecting much as my dh has a low count.
Last week we did a double IUI shot and I also took 100mg of clomid. I ovulate on my own and produce decent follicles (despite being 39 3/4!).
I'm 3 days from expected AF, I'm gonna do an HPT in 2 days time.

I would like to hear some success stories too with similar situations. So far I'm only 7dpo, but have a short cycle. I've been feeling tired and sometimes achy, today I was overwhelmingly hot, which is completely unlike me. Don't wanna get my hopes up as it's only the first try, but I will keep you girls up to date. Here's hoping.

Oh ps.... I didn't have any shots, suppositories or the like.

Fingers crossed!!!

SOO7 - were you monitored last cycle when you just tried Clomid on your own to see how many follicles you produced ?

Also IUI will be in the books for us if Clomid doesn't work after 3 cycles. For the double shot. Do you go on two separate days ?

Good luck on testing. I hope the IUI is what did the trick !!

ADV- no triggers, I did an unmonitored cycle, assuming only one egg, since that was what was on my u/s. S007- The only symptoms I remember were sore nipples 4dpo-12dpo and creamy cm the whole time. I remember my ovaries were almost sore by the time we got to O.

Hey everyone

I'm new to this and hope to find someone who I can go through this journey with!!

A little bit about me. I have just finished taking provera and am waiting for my period to start my 1st lot of clomid. My husband and I started trying in November 2012 and after finishing the pill I didn't have a period for 6 months. So went on to have tests which told me I had PCOS, my husband also got tested which he found out he didnt have any live sperm and he had to go back 6 months later after being told what to do to see if it would reverse. Well we got the amazing news that it did and that he was now above average with his sperm count. So all focus went back onto me which is amazing and now we have started out journey!!!

To be totally honest I am slightly scared it won't work. I keep trying to read success stories to boost my confidence. Would love to have someone to chat to about problems or how we're feeling on this journey!!

Thanks for reading :)

Welcome MrsP! Hey I thought I'd share that I took robitussin through ovulation too girls!! It helps thin your mucus since clomid tends to dry it up. I think pre-seed does the same thing. Seemed to work for me!

Welcome MrsP3! Happy to share this journey with you, I just finished days 3-7 on Clomid so I go in Friday CD 11 to check my follicles.

Tinley - When did you start taking Robitussin and for how long? I'm on CD 8...should I start?

Adv2014:

I was monitored during the the first cycle of clomid, but I'm also almost 40. Plus, I live in canada, so I'm not paying out of pocket for every visit. I've had to pay only for additional testing (HIS tests, pct, amh etc), I paid for the clomid and the IUI itself.
With the clomid and iui round, I had blood work and ultrasounds every day cd 12-17, did the double shot on cd 16 & 17, so yes you have to go twice. The actual procedure took 5 mins, what took time was waiting for Dh to give specimen, then 45 mins for the wash. The dr told me to come back in 12 days for bloodwork to see if I'm pregnant! That's this Sunday!!!

I believe I had 3 follicles both times, I was producing on my own, the Clomid just beefed them up. At the IUI I had 3 at 21,19, 18mm

I'm under the impression from my dr that things have moved quickly for me due to dh low count and my age.

Testing 2mrw!!!!! Ahhhh!!

Well, I think this natural cycle is coming to an end. But man I had a nice looking chart this round. Hoping clomid and some better timing on BD will do the trick!
