Thanks for the info. Doctor told me no nursing while taking Clomid but this wouldnt be the first time she misled me :| Good to know I wont have to stock up so much EBM just to TTC in the fall. :D

She might have been thinking during the first couple months. Once your supply is established it's no longer a concern. Not much affects my supply these days.

Do it. Even if you're just having late o, clomid can help you O early which can drastically increase your chances.

I saw this was a sticky now... wanted to say that my first cycle taking clomid while BFing I got a BFP! :) It totally straightened out my crazy cycles. I've been BFing all through the pregnancy so far and it's been fine.

I'm rooting for you Susy!

Thanks! 100mgs of clomid did the trick again!

Sweet! I got my first PPAF last week and I think I'm going to start the Metformin again... and then stop preventing from now on, with the intention to go on Clomid again, if needed, after the first of the year. Hope the Met+Clomid combo does the trick for me again, too!
