Clomid issue

Postby skarrlette » Sun Jul 24, 2016 1:54 pm

Hi I'm ttc a new baby with clomid. I have periods but I have been trying for over a year. No luck. The doctor says that clomid will not work for me since I am having periods. However i am confused. I am over 40 so my hormones are lower than normal. I may be getting periods but I have heard that just because you are getting your periods does not mean you are ovulating. I seem to be finding a lot of resistance to given me the drug (not sure if its ageism because I'm an older mom) I don't want to jump gun but I can try to have a baby at any age I want if my body is healthy but thats another issue.

I know Clomid is well tolerated because I talked to a pharmacist. i am healthy no medical disorders. Doc told me to get my partners sperm tested first. Which I get. Although it makes it harder for me to orchestrate a sperm test when my husband works like a horse. Anyway..... my question is...did anyone on here take clomid successfully even though they were still getting their periods throughout??? Were you able to conceive after trying while getting periods and not getting pregnant???

TIA!!! Very frustrated and nervous

Hi Skarrlette,
I get my period and ovulate on my own. My doc just prescribed me clomid this cycle after trying for 4 years. My DH has sperm issues and he still have it to me. I guess the clomid can make you ovulate a stronger healthier egg(s), so more of a chance. It made me O exactly cd 14, I had ewcm for the first time and just felt over all more fertile. I used to O cd 11 and I think it was too early and my egg wasn't ripe enough. I'll know in a few days if I end up getting a BFP or not. I hope you're doc ends up prescribing it to you to atleast try for a couple of cycles. Wishing you lots of luck!

I had regular cycles that were getting shorter before clomid. Took me 7 cycles and going from 50-100mg to finally get preggers. I'm 33 weeks. That sounds weird. Have they tested your cd 21 progesterone either to see if you're ovulating?
