Clomid and Multiples

Postby It's Me Puddles! » Sat Feb 06, 2016 3:25 pm

Hey everyone.
My doc has planted the seed in my brain about taking clomid once I've passed the (rapidly approaching) 1 year TTC mark. For whatever reason, as I've started coming around to the idea it's like there's a tiny voice in my head saying "Clomid will work...and you'll have twins" :shock:
Super weird, I know.
We have all heard the statistics on clomid (slightly) raising the chance of twins to roughly a 10% chance...but how many people ON HERE have conceived multiples while on clomid? What about clomid + other treatments (ex IVF)?
And, just in general, what was your experience (multiples or not!) with clomid and do you have any input for someone who may be starting their first round in the near future?

I took clomid for seven cycles. On the plus side I found it pretty easy to tolerate, but unfortunately it didn't work for me. Though my story has a happy ending: my first cycle of injectables (Menopur + Ovidrel) and IUI worked. I was petrified about the chances of higher order multiples, but I'm pretty happy to have ended up with twins. Anyway, I add my story just to say that while I hope clomid works (or that you don't end up needing it at all) there's life after clomid, too! In the meantime, good luck!

My scan is still two weeks away, but I'll let you know if it's twins. I have a "feeling" that it is. 50mg clomid ended in MC with one. This pregnancy is 100mg and my progesterone test was high. We'll see:)

Thanks so much for your responses!
It's intimidating to start to think about taking the next step and "adding" pharmaceutical intervention into our TTC journey. But at this point, I'm just so tunnel vision to a BFP, a full term pregnancy and a healthy baby (or babies?!) that my reservations are negated.
It makes it so much easier to know you aren't alone!
