2nd round Clomid 50 mg

Postby Rach61414 » Tue Mar 24, 2015 2:59 pm

Hi everyone. This is my first time posting here. I guess I'm just looking for women in similar situations as me and for some guidance/advice.

A little about me: I'm 29 just got married June 2014. I've had 2 miscarriages one that ended with a d&c the other I found out I was pregnant super early, started bleeding and ended in the ER with negative pregnancy tests. Both of those were in a previous relationship. Nothing since hubby & I have been together since 2012.

I have normal but heavy periods, multiple drs have tested me for just about everything fertility related, all coming back normal.

Finally went to a specialist who tested hubby, his test came back normal. Dr prescribed me 50 mg Clomid which I started in February so this is now my second month. Both months I have ovulated cycle day 18. Is that too late to get pregnant? Ive been taking the Clomid days 3-7 as recommended by Dr.

Any advise, tips, opinions ladies? Its so hard to stay positive!

Hi Rach, welcome to the boards! I'm sorry to hear about your previous miscarriages but I hope you'll get your baby very soon! It's so frustrating when everything is "normal" yet it doesn't seem to be working. Hopefully Clomid will work.

I'm on my 3rd round. I started with 50, went to 100 and I'm still on 100. I take it days 5-9. Last cycle I ovulated on cd 21, this cycle I ovulated on cd 23. Although I haven't conceived yet on Clomid with ovulation this late, there are several ladies on here that have with ovulation as late as cd 27. Don't give up hope! Are you being monitored or are you using opks and temping?

I wish I could give you some advice but since I'm still trying myself it's hard to know what to say! I'll definitrly be your Clomid buddy though! Keep me updated on how things are going!

I am doing opks so at least I know I am in fact ovulating. It's so hard to stay calm and not stress over it I'm so tired of hearing just dont think about it, etc.

It's a little more assuring knowing other women ovulate much later than us and are still successful, I've been worried that I'm oing too late in my cycle for success.

I opted out of the ultrasounds because of insurance reasons

Ovulating late is definitely difficult! I always start off bding every day in hopes to catch the egg and then when I still haven't ovulated my husband and my sex drive has really decreased so we maybe bd every other day or every 2 days and I feel like that's when we miss the egg. In the future we need to just start out later in the cycle.

I took clomid in the middle of a cycle. It was my first round. I started clomid on cd 21, I took it cd 21-25 and ovulated cd 34 and had a faiiiiiiint BFP at 8dpo and a test that I considered my for sure no doubt about it BFP at 10dpo on cd44. I am now 22 weeks pregnant with one healthy baby boy. I just thought I would share my story about ovulating late with clomid and it still resulted in a BFP. Good luck ladies!

Thanks hun!! That is definitely reassuring & congrats on your bfp!!!

I didn't know you could take Clomid so late in a cycle. If you don't mind me asking: why did you decide to start it so late?

I ovulate cycle day 20-22 and I got a BFP, sadly it ended early, but I'm hopeful it will happen again. I don't think there is a wrong time to ovulate. as long as you time everything right, I think that matters more. Good luck to you.

What a positive story mermaid! Thanks for sharing. I wish you a happy and healthy rest of your pregnancy!

I've heard that Clomid is supposed to make you ovulate 7-10 days after your last pill and I ovulated 14 days after the last pill. I wonder if that means my dosage needs to be increased.

I don't know, I think my doctor was just happy that it made me ovulate and felt no need to adjust dosage, even though it occurred so late. It could just take your body longer to build up hormones to cause ovulation to occur. I'm curious to know more about the science behind it all.

I am new to this board so HI all! I too have started my second round of Clomid 50mg this month. I take it on days 3-7 and today is CD7 so I will be taking my last one tonight. I was on the same schedule last month which was unsuccessful but I did O on CD15. Prior to clomid my cycles were very long (70 or 80+ days) so I was so super excited to O as early as I did. I will start OPKs on CD 10 and will keep you posted when I receive a positive this month (hopefully I will!) Good luck ladies!!

Rach- Thank you!!
To be honest, my doctor had said for me to wait until the start of my next cycle to take it, but I had just come off of a cycle that was 70 days long and then was already on cd 21 of a new cycle with no sign of ovulation, no positive opk, nothing. So I figured if it was just supposed to make me ovulate that i would take it to make me ovulate and at least have an idea of when my next cycle was supposed to start, and if it didn't get me pregnant i was okay with it, i was just tired of having very long irregular cycles and figured if i could make my period come faster that i could try again faster. I did end up getting pregnant though, so somehow it worked!

Jz-Thank you! And im not sure about the dosage thing. I took 50 mg and i ovulated 9 days later, that 9 days felt like an eternity though.

Mermaid, I'm glad you've had a positive outcome with taking clomid so late. I see you're having a boy! That's so exciting :) I would love a boy.

Hi Errt! Your cycles sound exactly like mine. It's not fun waiting for months to finally start your period and knowing that you probably didn't ovulate.
I hope clomid helps you ovulate and much sooner! I ovulated 14 days after my last pill (cd 23).
