Ovulation will automatically get your cycles back...so yes, if you ovulate on clomid, you will get your period about two weeks after ovulation. Unless you're pregnant, of course ;-) Best of luck this month!
Msteri is right in that you will need to get your period started before you can start the clomid pills, but once your cycle starts, and is you ovulate, you will automatically get your period after that...or even better, get pregnant!
What happens is that after ovulation, your progesterone levels go up...and if you get pregnant, they stay high throughout the pregnancy...but if you don't, they will go back down about two weeks after ovulation and you will get your period. That is why many women take provera (a progesterone supplement) to start their period, since it "tricks" your body into thinking you ovulated and therefore brings on your period when you stop the pills.
If you don't get your period, how are you going to start the Clomid on days 5-9 of your cycle? It doesn't seem likely that your period will just start up on its own since you haven't had it in over six months. Were you prescribed another medication to induce it? Clomid can only help you ovulate. It doesn't make your period start at all.
No she didn't give me any other meds. She just said that the clomid would help me get back on track. She said that since i haven't had a cycle or ovulated that i could just go ahead and take the clomid. I go back on the 19th for the blood work they do after clomid. She said if it doesn't work to get me preg. this time that we would just up the dose.
Now i'm a little confused. I took the clomid for supposed 5-9, was supposed to be ovulating soon, but instead I started af. Not sure what this means, does it mean that the clomid worked? Does that mean I won't ovulate again since i've taken the clomid before i had a period? help please i have no idea
You should call ur doctor and let her know you took clomid days 5-9 but AF has started now. You may have to take it on days 5-9 of current AF to ensure that you'll ovulate or she may want you to use OPKs with this AF to see if you ovulate on your own this cycle. She really should have had you wait for AF to start clomid instead of taking it and not knowing where you actually were in your cycle. I know this is very frustrating for you but if everything works out you'll be very happy in a few weeks :)
well i called my doc and they said to just come in on the day we already scheduled for the progesterone labs. They aren't going to do another cycle of clomid yet??? just a question can u ovulate twice in one month, could that be what happened
Well, that wouldn't be what happened because the Clomid would not have made you ovulate yet, but you could have ovulated on your own a few weeks ago and that's why your cycle started. After you ovulate, there's about 14-16 days (luteal phase) until you period. So you could still ovulate for this cycle but it's kind of tricky because you don't know if the Clomid would have any effect on your current cycle or not but you can always take OPKs to track your ovulation and then BD if you get a positive OPK. I hope that made sense lol.
well the docs office called. I tried to tell them that it wasn't my cd21 bcuz i had a cycle right after the clomid, they called today and said i have to go back in on Apr. 5 for more blood work bcuz they did it the wrong day. It wouldn't b so bad except I have to pay everytime they draw blood so I have to pay even after I told them it was the wrong day. Kinda frustrated about it all.
YES, af started on it's own this month which made me happy and sad at the same time. I'm going to start my 2nd round of clomid on the 15th. and hopefully it works this month. I don't know if it matters that af only lasted 2 1/2 days this time. My normal before all the probs was 7 days. Hopefully I won't have to worry about it for 9 more months.
Well, I don't know what normal levels of progestin are, but I know 2.4 is low. That's what mine was last time. So they gave me progesterone to induce af then they are upping my dosage of clomid from 50 to 100. I am worried about this though, because we already have children and she mentioned that raising the dose raises the chance for multiples. Does anyone know about this? Either way I will be happy, it's just a little worrisome.
I go in the 8th of June for my 21 day progesterone , then i should b able to take a hpt by the 15th. Does that sound right to you, I'm not sure? I'm just so excited that i finally did O after trying without meds for almost a year, and with meds the last 4 months. I'm not really sure how to add that all up, I say the 15th cuz that's around the time my next cycle should start.
Yay! My levels last month were 2.4 and this month, even checking 2 days late, my level was 34.2. I am so excited! Just a few more days and I can take a hpt. I really hope this is my last month of all the meds. That would be a really good Father's day present.
Well, no af as of yet, but I'm starting to cramp, so I'm thinking maybe this wasn't the month. Still not out of the running yet though. I plan on testing in the morning if af doesn't show. That will put me 14 dpo. I o'd on cd 15 and my cyles are normally 28 days apart so I was supposed to start today. Hopefully af doesn't show and I get a bfp tomorrow! If it doesn't show by Monday, I'm going to call and see if I can get a blood test done. Monday would put me at 19 dpo, it would show on a blood test by then wouldn't it? Well here's hoping! Good luck to all BFP's to all!
Well, No af yet. So I'm still in the running for another day at least! This may be TMI, but normally when dh and I bd and af is due, it makes me start. Not just once in awhile but everytime, and it didn't this time. So I'm taking that as a good sign. I did test this morning and it was bfn. I'm just hoping it was too soon, gonna take another on Sunday. I did the q tip test, and there is no signs of starting af at all. So that's a really good sign. Until af shows, I will stay positive, if it does show, then it'll just happen next month. Good luck to all who are TTC
Still no af !!!!! I have heard that the clomid can cause af to come late, just wondering if this is true? I had af symptoms like the day before or the day af was due, but none since then, They didn't even last 4 hours. I'm not sure if I should be excited that she hasn't shown or worried!!!! I am trying to hold out until Sunday to test which is harder than I thought, if af hasn't shown and its bfn, I'm going to call for a blood test. I'm still hopeful, but so unsure at the moment. However, I don't know if it's preggo symptoms or not, but I get nausous every night between 11pm and 12 am, I've had heartburn the past week everyday, and I have had a lot of cm. Plus I feel like I have to pee every hour. I don't know if I'm just psyching myself out, or if this is preggo symptoms. Just have to wait until Sunday or later. I do know with my last pregnancies, I had to have blood tests, cuz hpt wouldn't show at all so I'm still hoping and praying that this was our month. Sorry this is so long and thanks for listening(reading)!!!!
Well, af showed late Sat. I was really bummed. I'm kinda feeling better now, at least we're not wondering and we can start another month off right. Hopefully this will b all our months. Good Luck to all of u. SSBD to all
This is going to be the month(June/July), I won't let it not be. That is how I'm going to look at it from now on. If it isn't, then there's always another month to try. I am too determined now too let the little stuff get in my way. I just have a feeling that this will be the month, and we're going to try extra hard to make it that way.
Started the new round of clomid today! I'm actually excited about it this month. Does anyone know how many rounds they normally let u go through? I did 4 rounds of 50's and this is 2 rounds of 100's. Just wondering! Hope to see lots of BFP's for everyone this month. Good luck and SSBD to all.
I think I got a positive opk!! I'm not absolutely sure, the line is as dark as the control, but some is faded. It's 1/2 really dark and 1/2 faded. Not sure what it means! I'm kind of excited, but I'm not getting my hopes up until my 21 day check which is the 9th. I hope I hope! Good luck to all, I'm hoping this will be my last month ttc.
Hello all! Well today for me is 4dpo. I o'd on the 4th. Wasn't much fun either, it was a very painful O. Just my body's way of saying the clomid worked. I am very excited, but I'm not getting my hopes up until I see a BFP. How is everyone else doing?
Well I've been trying to get pregnant over a year now! I'm 22 and I heared about the clomid but I wasn't sure if it was really true it can help with getting pregnant! Where and who should I go to , will my primary care doctor procribe me clomid or my obgyn!???
Hi there. My cycles aren't regular at all. My gynae also told me to start clomide on any day and consider that day as day 5 of my cycle. He also told me to have progesterone tests done 18 days later (day 23). He said we must "get it on" days 11 - 19... I have cycts though and wondering how long it will take for me to get pregnant. Can anyone say?
Hello all, I wanted to add my bit on clomid-YOU dont have to have a period or bleed to start clomid -I havnt had a regular cycle or even a cycle for years due to an eating problem and lowish body weight. But my dr told me to start clomid on a particular day for 5 days-i had a test 21 days later and showed my eostrogen levels were high and progesterone over 30, i had ovulated!!! I also though i may have a had mucus stuff, anyway r told m to expect a period and if one didnt come to take a hpt, anyway got period, so clomid worked, helped me ovulate and the lower dose 50mg. We have tried it a few times inbetween ivfs and sometimes it works but also i know not to go on it for more than 2-3 cycles as it gave me a cyst last year.am 42 and know chances are low, but have been on clomid agaiin, has given me a period so know i ovulated last month, taking clomid again this cycle now i have the period, will take on day 2-5, and try again. my best wishes to all, i hope everyone gets their dreams to come true, melissa in u.k
