Ladies,

When I first started clomid it was on 1994. I have tried through out the years. In 2004 I got pregnant on clomid and green tea but it was an ectopic. Earlier this year my Doctor up my dosage to 100 mg. To make a long story short I started the beginning of the year stop and start back in July and now I'm expecting.

Keep the Faith!!!

Hi Everyone,

I am back from the long weekend and have access to the computer. AF arrived on schedule on Sunday. I got my new prescription for Femara on Friday i am starting that tomorrow. Summer-Maybe we will be starting the meds at the same time this month have you started AF yet? I am doing cd 3-7. Jnt -What cycle days did you take clomid? Last month i took it cd 2-6 and got my surge day 14 ovulated day sixteen so keep peeing on that stick :) your time is almost here. Mahogany heart thanks for the inspiration it is so nice to hear success stories on clomid it gets scary when i read all of the posts from people who are doing IVF. I will talk to you guys later i have to do some research on Femara. Summer wb if you can to let me know when you start meds...

Alison- so sorry that the witch AF decided to rear its ugly head. anyway we will keep the faith for the next cycle. I have finished my provera and am just waiting for AF to show up and then start my clom. I was told to take clom from days 2-6. it is just the same as the first round. You were on clom for how long.I hope we will be cycle buddies, you on your femara and me on my clom that wud be cool.
Jnt- how are u doing gal.
guys my CM is so dry or at times ther is nothing there at all. is there anything i can take to have lots of cm.

P/S Alison- does Femara work the same as clom? i dont think i have heard of it.

Anyway here is to wishing us lots of baby dust.

Hey Summer,

I was on clomid 2 months she had me take it the first month cd 5-9 and i didn't ovulate until day 19 so that cycle was a bust. I took it day 2-6 last month and o on 16 so taking it early seems like it works best. CM should be kind of dry until a few days before you ovulate then it gets slippery ew. One of the documented side effects of clomid however is drying up the CM. I think the best way to combat this is by taking Robitussein without DM the DM part is the decongestant so that drys things up (seems like a pretty dumb combination of meds to me). Drink a lot of water too. I have heard of people drinking grapefruit juice too around o time but i am not sure if this is an old wives tale or not. There is also preseed (18$ for 6 tubes though) and also some women use eggwhites as lubricant there is a whole website on how to do that (momma kat or something like that you just key word search it is pretty easy to find something like:conceiving using eggwhites should pull it up) be careful if you try that to follow directions they suggest I haven't tried that yet though seems a little scary but much cheaper than preseed. Femara does kind of the same thing as clomid blocking estrogen somehow to trick your body into producing more of the follicle stimulation hormones. I am trying this for two months then going to the specialist for the big guns or more testing. DH is scared of multiple births because oneof our friends had one deformed twin so is not so hot on the injection idea but in my opinion most people with problems are lucky to get one egg to stick and so would
we :) I personally will welcome any miracle. Did you get your surge yet JNT??... I started my meds today Summer so I guess we aren't cycle buddies but close. Take care let me know how the clomid at 150 mg is treating you.

Hello ladies
I forgot to take this morning I am trying to wait four hour to take it later, but as of yesterday no surge. Today is cd14 but I didn't started clomid until cd6. I don't know if that makes a difference. Thanks for the support. Good luck.

Hi ladies!

I just finished my first round of Clomid (50mg) this month. My progesterone level was 30 on day 22. Is that about what it should be after taking Clomid?

Thanks! ;D

 

alison29 - November 17

Hi Wl102,
I hate for you to get ignored but i am not sure what your progesterone should be after finishing clomid. My doctor is not very good at monitoring these things or maybe she is just trying to save me money. I bet you could do a key word search and figure it out but it sounds like it is high enough to indicate that you have ovulated.

 

WI102 - November 17

Hi Alison,

Thanks for responding! After not hearing from anyone I did look it up, and I found a site that said anything over 15 indicated ovulation. I'm assuming mine was a little higher becasue of the Clomid. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

 

alison29 - November 17

Hello,

So that sounds really great. How long do you have until AF or testing? The tww is the worst. Have you felt any symptoms yet? I can always tell af is on her way at least a week ahead of time. Well lots of Baby dust your way...Have a good weekend and keep us posted

 

summer - November 18

WI102- will keep our fingers crossed for you espcially if u have ovulated. I didnt ovulate on my first cycle of clom.

Alison- after finishing my provera i am still waiting for AF to turn up and she hasnt done that, although i can feel some pains. She may not be too far away. i hope so ;)

jnt- how are you doing chickie ;)

i hope u guys have a great weekend

 

WI102 - November 19

Hi Alison,

AF is due tomorrow and so far I seem to have my normal symptoms indicating her pending arrival >:( So I guess we'll be trying another cycle of Clomid next month. I agree, the tww is the worst, I'm glad its almost over.

Thanks for the well wishes Summer! Good luck to you too!
