Clomid Advice

Postby lwdunn » Thu May 14, 2015 12:39 pm

Hello ladies! My name is Lauren. I'm currently taking my second round of Clomid right now, (round 1 = BFN). I'm just curious if anyone had success on rounds 2 or 3? I was only prescribed 3 rounds so I'm really hoping it works. Does anyone take anything to supplement the Clomid to help? Thank you so much for your input! Baby dust to all!

Hi, girls. I just ended my second cycle using Clomid 50 mg. My first round in December I took it CD 5-9. I ovulated on CD14. That cycle, I saw my first pair of pink lines ever, but that ended up being a chemical pregnancy. This time, I decided to try 3-7 and noticed a huge difference in ovulation. Oh man, it was painful and my O pains lasted 2 days. I ovulated on CD 16 that time. For about 3 days after that my ovaries felt tender. I got a BFN on 12 and 14DPO and AF came today, 15DPO. I'm taking a break next cycle due to DH going out of town for 2 weeks. When he returns I plan to take it CD 5-9 again. Good luck to you both!

Hi Priscilla!

I took it days 3-7 again with my last pill on May 17th. I'm going to start testing soon with opk's. Last cycle, I didn't ovulate until CD18, so we shall see what happens this time! What about you? Did you complete your second round already?

I'm on my second round and had my follicle check up yesterday CD11. I had 2 large ones- 23.5 and 21 so I did my trigger shot right away so I should ovulate tonight. Praying we all get BFP soon! It's part science, but God plays a roll too and all great gifts come from above :-)

@bcl30 - those are great follies... What type of trigger did you do? Ovidrel / HCG?

I am doing HCG tonight.

What time did you do your shot?
How many hours after shot do you O?

Is this your first shot?

Yes, great gifts come from above... I believe God put great doctors and nurses in this world to aid in his work.. :-)

@pmayer77 I did the ovidrel. This is my second month doing the trigger. Last month was busy and crazy as I was meeting up w my husband and I'm not so sure we got the timing just right. For example, I took the shot two days after the told me to. I think you ovulate about 36 hours later- so not within 36 but right around the 36 hour mark. That's my understanding. I did mine yesterday morning about 945. So tonight around then should be official ovulation. Clomid dries up my mucus so it's hard for me to know if I'm ovulating for sure. We are using pre seed this month. Oh and I was told sex the day of trigger and the day after. Is this your first trigger?

@bcl30 - I did my trigger last night at 10pm. (instructed to do between 8-10) this time it was HCG, but last month I did Ovidrel.

So, the o should happen Sunday morning.

Baby dust and prayers for you..

@pmayer77 good luck! I'll be praying it works out for you.

Why did you switch from ovidrel to hcg? Just curious :-)

Bcl30,

My doctor prescribed me originally HCG last month but it was sold out and Walgreens said the manufacturer had a backlog of orders.

So at the last minute, my doctor prescribed the Ovidrel.

This month I was prescribed the HCG again and I was finally able to get it.

I believe they are relatively the same thing.
