LAST CLOMID PILL TODAY - ANYONE ELSE?

Postby jshopeful » Tue May 26, 2015 9:44 am

Hey Ladies!

Today is day 7 of my cycle so I'm taking my last clomid pill tonight. Wondering if anyone else is around the same cycle as me? I would LOVE to have some to share the journey with :D

YES!! me!! I am on my first round of clomid 50mg, cd 5-9 today was my list pill. No major side effects except a few hot flashes, slightly sore boobs and minor abdominal pain...HOWEVER...I caved and took an OPK though I'm not supposed to start testing till tomorrow..and it was a very clear positive...which I've read can be a false positive on clomid...HOWEVER...I am also religiously checking my CM and I saw huge globs of EWCM...but it was also tinged with brown which is really concerning to me since that's NEVER happened mid cycle for me. I always spot brown 3-4 days before AF but never near or around ovulation...WEIRD...but going to BD tonight and then wait till the doc says it's really time...

How are things going for you?

I took my last pill on the 25th, so i'm just one day ahead of you! I didn't have any side effects from the Clomid so far, so thats nice. This is my first cycle taking it, I did it 3-7. Only thing different i've noticed is that my temps are pretty high for being pre-ovulation. Maybe thats from the clomid?

Yay!! A cycle buddy :) I didn't have any side effect either, except hot flashes....well I think that's what it was but it's also very hot outside so it's probably all together.
I have an RE appointment tomorrow to check for follicle growth and count - I will let you know how it goes.
fingers crossed :)

Yay good luck!! What days do you normally ovulate? The last two cycles I ovulated CD20/21 so i'm hoping that Clomid will make me ovulate sooner! I plan on starting my OPK's in a few days.

I don't ovulate lol - that's the problem. I do live in Canada though, so starting Friday, and every day next week, I have to go in the morning for blood work and an ultrasound and they will tell me what day I ovulate. I think it's usually around CD14-16 but I will have a better idea after tomorrow.

Oh I see. Well I feel your pain! I have PCOS and when I went off bcp in 2014 I wasn't ovulating either. In January of 2015 I started Metformin and started ovulating on my own! I was so happy! So, this is only my 4th cycle ovulating, and first cycle trying out the Clomid. FX for both of us that the Clomid works! I see you have had one baby with clomid a few years ago? How many months did it take to conceive her?

I actually conceived her my very first month so I was super lucky.
I'm hoping that the second one is just as successful but I have a bad feeling this time around ....

Wow, super lucky! Awe, don't have such a bad feeling about it. Keep your spirits up! Is this your first cycle trying for #2? Hopefully your u/s tomorrow will show nice size follicles! Are you doing IUI too, or just monitoring ovulation then time BD right?

Yes this is my first cycle for baby #2.
They will do clomid for 3 months before switching to IUI.
What about you? How long have you been TTC?

I went off the pill in Feb of 2014 and DH and I were just NTNP at first, but I had a gut feeling something was wrong as I wasn't having any periods. That was when I finally started TTC per say, when I knew it wasn't going to be a NTNP kind of situation. In October I finally got in to the doctors and in November I was diagnosed with PCOS. In January of this year I started Metformin and luckily it has helped me ovulate on my own. I'm currently on my 4th cycle now ovulating, so i'm crossing my fingers that the Clomid helps this month!

Hey ladies!

I'm jumping in here as I could use some Clomid buddies! I am a couple weeks ahead of y'all though! I took mine (50mg) CD3-7 on May 11-15, so currently in the TWW! Arrrrr

I had an ultrasound on CD13 and my doctor saw one follicle on my left ovary, 14mm. He said the clomid is working...but then said he wasn't sure if the egg had already been released or was still maturing. I then told him I'd gotten +OPKs the morning prior and evening prior to that...and he seemed even more confused. Awesome. Not.

We ended up BDing every other day that cycle (including before and after my +OPKs, so hopefully we covered our bases. We have been TTC for 7 months and I'm REALLY ready for this to happen!

Over the weekend my aunt told me she took it for 3 cycles - the 3rd cycle the dr doubled her dosage and she had twins (who are now graduating high school!). So...who knows!

I hope you both have great results from it! I like that jshopeful got preggers 1st (clomid) try last time, that's awesome! Good luck & have a great weekend!

So I had my CD10. Ultrasound today and there were no follicles so sad! Dr said since I'm three years older then my first time my body may not respond so well. He wants me to go back in on CD13 for another check and said if there's still no action he'll start me on double dose of clomid from CD13-18 even though I just took it CD3-7. Has anyone heard of this?
