Hi Jacqueline

and welcome to this world of clomiphene. The ladies here are very supportive of each other and lend a shoulder to cry on. My 1st round of clom didnt work for me. i did not ovulate at all. i was on 100mg. how many doses are u on?

this time round my doser has been increased to 150mg and i am also praying that it works for me this time.

i wish you much luck and hope it works for u in this round. if it doesnt just remeber that there will be other rounds to follow.

much babydust and love.

Hi Summer,
Thanks for checking in. I haven't tested or anything but I did detect my mood shift on monday that means af is on her way i can always tell. Boobs are sore too just like always. Well at least next month I am trying something different and hopefully moving on to a specialist. Some sad unrelated news a pitbull and mix breed we were watching mauled my belove kitty we found him today. He was very lovely with fluffy white fur and big blue eyes i miss him and hate to think how he died. Say a prayer for him in kitty heaven so sad :(...I will let you know what happens at my appointment a week from friday. Let me know when you start the clomid if you get a chance

I started using Clomid last month and the doctor confirmed by my blood test that I ovulated. My progesterone level was 25. He was excited about that. But unfortunately I wasn't pregnant this month. I ovulated late this time. Maybe this month will be better. I have noticed i am having some wierd side effects with clomid. I was increased to 100mg of Clomid. I really just want some results FASTs!!!

Hi Krissy,
When do you start your next round of clomid? I know what you mean about wanting results fast because by the time they will start treating it has already been FOREVER. Then they tell you to be patient ugh! How long have you guys been trying? I try to be strong like the others on this site who have beeb ttc for over 2 years but it is so difficult. Baby dust ...keep us updated.

allison29,

My husband and I have been trying since Sept 04. I have been pregnant three times and lost my girls to Autoimune disorder. So I have to take aspirin everyday and then take Heparin my next pregnancy. The aspirin has effected my ovulation. They just finished doing a lot of tests and confirmed that I have luteal phase defect. So this last month was my first month to be on clomid. The clomid really made my body produce more progesterone. With the other pregnancies I had to take progesterone shots weekly. So it has been a rollar coaster ride for the past two years. I am really trying to be patient. But it is so hard. I still cry about the girls that I lost. But I also didnt mention that I have two other children. I have a 11 year old and a 9 year old.
baby dust!!!!

Hi jnt
Hey we are here for each other, if u feel like venting do that if it makes it any easier. I will pray for you that this cycle works. I have heard about the robotussin, which one do you take. do you have to take it everyday or just particular days please tell me more , i want to try it as well.
we have been trying for 2ys now and its been an emotional journey. i am filled with pple who have babies around me or who are heavily pregnant, gosh its not fair. i will keep my faith and know hat one day it will be my turn. they will all come to see me and my baby coz most of them have got 2 or 3 already.

lots of luck and babdydust your way :)

Hey Summer
I read that you take 2 teaspoons 3 times a day during the expect ovulation period. I started the day I started Clomid. It is suppose to help thin out the harsh cervical mucus that sometimes comes as a side effect to clomid. I total understand about what you are going though. I have babys all around me. I hope the best of luck to you and try the robotussin. Also drink lots of water.Send babydust you way.

 

alison29 - November 9

Hi Summer,
Thanks for thinking of me in these last couple of days till af. Hope springs eternal i guess. I have been doing the robitussin too. Last cycle i switched to muccinex it seems a little more expensive (because it is name brand) but i think it is worth it. You take two pills a day which are time released the liquid is nasty. I started taking it 3 days before expected ovulation and yes drink lots of water like jnt said. What does Metformin do? A while back a read a success story due to metformin. My doctor is going to try an aromatase inhibitor they achieve same goal as clomid but by different mechanism so less effect on the lining (this is my take on it anyway). oh related to cm some people use egg whites while on clomid haven't tried that yet though. I hope your af shows this weekend so you guys get your next try :) lots of baby dust your way too. take care

 

jnt010 - November 9

Hey Allison29,

Does the muccinex work better or is it just more convenient? I did the metformin and it was horrible. I never want to see that stuff again. I started Clomid tuesday are you on clomid? Oh I heard about the egg white it kinda sound gross but I heard that you can also use Preseed and Olive oil. It's gotten to be that I know some much about trying to have a baby it's crazy!
Well lots of babydust to you. Good Luck.

 

alison29 - November 9

Hi jnt,
Its just more convenient it has the same ingredient guafesein (however you spell it) I have been on clomid the past two cycles it helped me to ovulate earlier (without it my luteal phase was only 9 days). Right now i am waiting on AF saddly enough then back to the obgyn to try something else. We used preseed last month I never heard of the olive oil thing i will have to look it up. I know what you mean about learning everything possible I have been a little obsessed with it too. I might have to cut my self off for a little while to relax about things (that is what they say right) like that is possible :) have a nice weekend we have a three day one whoo hoo!

Could ya'll tell me how long it takes for the side effcts to kick in after starting Clomid?
thanks
