1st Clomid Cylce!

Postby JessiBo » Thu Mar 12, 2015 12:32 pm

Hey!

I've been stalking these forums for quite some time (especially as I slog through the TWW). After being diagnosed with low AMH and starting Clomid this month, I figured it was time to start participating.

Everything went great at the initial u/s and blood work gave me the green light to start taking Clomid. I'm currently on day three (CD5) and no side effects! Hopefully that remains true.

It's always great to hear Clomid success stories, and any advice would be very welcome.

Thanks!

ah...stick with us! There are a lot of women on this board with great success stories. We just started this new thread, so I'm sure they'll be coming.
Do you chart at all? I'm just a bit of a chart stalker :)

Welcome Jessie! While have not had much luck ttc #2 with Clomid, I did get my DS that way. I don't usually feel the effects of Clomid until o and then have some discomfort all the way to af which this month I was sure the symptoms meant a bfp and was greatly disappointed when the witch showed. Good luck to you!

Speaking of charting. I keep saying I am going to do that but then don't. Partly because I never,wake up at the same time everyday and lately I have not been sleeping well which I think messes up my temps. Advice?

Thanks for the welcome!

Lisa - I do OPKs, CM and symptoms (for which I have five years of data) but not temp. I'm too much of a night owl so mornings are pretty rough.

I've been fortunate as I have regular cycles and with OPKs I know my LP is almost always 11 days. I also can usually feel when I ovulate. Now it's just a matter of getting those quality eggs out and about!

I am also going to be doing a trigger shot and progesterone with this cycle but no IUI. Praying it only takes once!

I'm here ladies and still stalking! I can't wait for you to all get your BFP!!

Lisa- your temps are still above the cover line so I am really praying that this is your month!!

Jess- Welcome! This is a great group of ladies! Although I am on the other side now I still like to check in and see how everyone is doing. I just LOVE this group of ladies and they have helped me so much! As for the clomid, really the only side effect that I had was that I became really mean (It seems to be common for most). So try to look out for that. But I was pretty lucky and conceived my second time using Clomid. I wasn't ovulating at all and my cycles were nonexistent so I am happy that it worked with only 50mg. I was also relieved to find out that there was only one in there! Twins would have been fun but just so much work with us possibly moving away from all of our families. Good Luck! I really hope you get your BFP soon!!

Oh, and Jessie...I am one of the lucky ones with no side effects to the clomid. Some people get a lot...some get none. It varies sooo much!

Hi Jessie - the only side effects I get is being very tearful for a couple of days and really bad period pain. Other than that I don't notice any side effects.

Thanks for the warm welcome ladies! I'm on day 4 of clomid and the side effects have unfortunately started. I was up all night with hot flashes. A few times it was bad enough to wake me up. Poor husband probably got really annoyed with all the tossing and turning!

Of course I'm exhausted today but hopefully I can bounce back for the weekend.
