Starting cycle #5 of Clomid feeling discouraged :(

Postby Rukkola » Fri Feb 19, 2016 7:51 am

Hi everyone,

I'm new here, just registered myself. I'm about to start round #5 of Clomid and I feel so sad and lonely, like I can't handle this anymore. I'd like to reach out and connect to others who are in similar situations...

I'm 29 and my Husband is 27, we've been trying for our first baby for 14 month. My cycles were very long and irregular after I stopped the pill (37 - 63 days) so my gynaecologist has put me on Clomid for 6 cycles. I felt like Clomid will be my answer but even though I've ovulated each time (for these 4 cycles) my period would come on time each month...

I still have two more months of Clomid but I'm losing hope :(

Has anyone been there and got pregnant on later cycles of Clomid or naturally?

Thanks in advance for your replies!

Yes, 8 cycles here. MC from my first BFP cycle. Finally went to 100 mg and BD'D for four straight days after my OPK was positive and finally got a BFP on cycle 8. I was feeling the same way that you are. Have they changed your milligrams? Could it be timing??

Hey, thanks for replying! Congratulations on your good news! Wow I'm glad to hear people get pregnant on later cycles of Clomid because internet is full of posts about how it works within first three months if it works... My doctor says she won't change my dose because I ovulate well on 50 mg. Timing-wise we tried every other day for the whole cycle and also tried concentrating only on fertile week days... The most annoying thing is that I go for ultrasounds each month and they tell me my follicule looks perfect and lining too... And they also tell me when I'll ovulate, so I feel like we're doing everything possible :( Did you do anything special / different on your 8th cycle when you conceived? x

Have you considered clomid with trigger and IUI? Maybe the little soldiers need an uber ride that's all! My hubby's motility is baseline 10%. But with IUI, they wash the sample and motility went up to >70%!!!! They have a hard time swimming in the semen. Prolly too thick for them. My April cycle was a bust but gearing up for #2 I pray it works!! Don't be discouraged. As long as both of you have been tested and u know what you are dealing with, it makes the game plan easier to plan.
