First day of cycle

Postby MMartyK » Sat Jul 16, 2016 8:15 pm

Hi,
I have a history of PCOS and am getting ready to start a round of 250mg of Clomid before moving to hyperstim and IUI. Today I started having bleeding that is dark brown. It's enough for use of a tampon. Do I consider this day 1? Thanks.

Hi! Wow 250mg, that's pretty high! I used clomid 50mg for the first time this cycle. I'm 2 dpo now. My doc said the day you see red blood is cd1. Idk, I personally think the day you need a tampon or maxi pad is day 1. I'm not a doctor though. What day did he tell you to start your pills? I did 3-7, and I ovulated a couple days later, which is good because I was ovulating way too early. I hope they work for you! I had some pretty bad side effects, and I can imagine you probably will too on a high dose. Take them at night to sleep through it. Best of luck to you!!

Yeah, I'm a little nervous. I've had a pretty extensive fertility history and trying for #3. I've done Clomid 50-150 long ago and nothing worked :( I didn't even know you could do a dose that high lol. I'm a little nervous. My first day was Saturday and it was definitely brown but I had a full tampon (sorry that's gross). The next am it was bright red. I would think that Saturday would be day#1. I will take them tonight before bed. Hopefully it works!!!

Yes fx it works for both of us!!! In sorry to hear about your fertility troubles, I can def relate! Clomid really did help me so far. I did notice some mid cycle spotting which I've never in my life had around cd 11. I've noticed I'm more emotional, having headaches, and having hot flashes. My temp is looking pretty good so far. I really hope that high dose gets the job done for you. Do you normally not O? I O too early, and we have MFI. So I'm hoping this works, even though the MFI is outta my hands.
