Im about to start clomid today and there is so many different ways to take it cd 3-7 or 5-9 if 100mg one in the morning and one at night, or together. just curious how all of you ladies take your clomid thanks
Congrats! how many cycles did it take you? I was supposed to take 100mg 3-7 but did not get it in time so im taking it 4-8 I dont know anyone who has taken clomid on those days, its always 3-7 or 5-9. Im not expecting a BFP my first cycle but it would be a nice surprise.
The day of the cycle on which to take clomid depends on why you are taking it. To make you ovulate you are more likely to start cd5. But if you O w/o clomid and just take it to produce better quality egg or to produce more follicles you typically start cd 3. Your ob or RE (whoever prescribed you clomid) should let you know when to start and how much to take.
My side effects that I got on 50 mg were
But they go away after the last pill or so It didnt last long.
And I suffer from bad migraines so I think thats why I had them worst when I was on clomid. So that is the reason I take them right before bed so I dont have to deal with them. Now I took 100mg last night and I woke up a few times confused and hallucinations I had to fight it off and just go back to sleep I also had chills not hot flashes which was crazy. And rem that not everyone is the same so dont think this will happend to you. That was just my frist night I hope tonight is better I get so worried on what will happen next. But It is just for a short time thats how I look at it anyways.
I hope that it works this time around for me too I have been on and off for 5 cycles now and this will be my 6 so I hope it works. and I hope it works for you this time around too.
I wanted to let you know that the hallucinations was due to me being really exhausted last night I was out late and my husband and I were up late watching tv So I dont want you to think it was because of the Clomid because it was not it was due to me being really tried. But everything else that I said are my side effect not everyone else has the same some show none at all and that I great. I hope that helps. What have you had since you been taking clomid any side effects. If you had none most likey you will have none.
Wow you get all the side effets im so sorry it must be miserable but it will all be worth it in the end. Does your doc say that you are o'ing? I took clomid six years ago and i didnt get pg with my son untill the 6th cycle, that doc put me on cd 5-9. When i was ttc my second child i had to go to another doc and he put me on cd 3-7 and i did get pg my 2nd cycle but it was a chemical pg, that happend 2 more times so i needed a break and i got pg with my 2nd son on that break he is now 2 and i would like one more but wasnt really sure when to take the clomid cd 5-9 or 3-7 so i took it cd 4-8 my doc doesnt really care one way or another, im kinda on my own. My side effects from clomid are I get super emotional but thats it. What cd are you on?
Yeah I was on clomid 50mg 5-9 and was on it off and on because I had other things in my life to take care of frist and I never O on those times and so this time I started seening and RE and he put me on 50mg from 3-7 and did cd21 test to see if I O but i O late so the test came back - and he said I dont O so we went back on Provera and he put me on 100mg this time and 3-7 days, last night I started. I am on Cd 4. I am sorry to hear about all the heartache I hope this time it works for us I dont like taking these meds. You and I are only a day apart you start the 16 I started the 17 so cool. Have you taken 100mg before or just 50mg? I hope that we get our blessings here soon.. SSBD
Yes I've always taken 100mg. I'm going to try for three mo. I really hope it works if not I think im done and i will just be happy with the two wonderful boys that i have, but i would really loooove to have a girl. Cool we can be cycle buddies and hopefully get our BFP at the same time.. SSBD your way
Yes this is my frist time on 100mg I hope I O because I am on my last round I dont have the funs for injectables and I am not going to be able to even do them so that is out of the question. But I hope we do get our BFP soon. I have an 11 year old daughter and would love to have a boy this time. I pray and hope...Keep me posted on whats going on.SSBD*******
Hey cherri yep I'm ttc my first time!but im nervous because I never know when im ovulating..my periods are really abnormal and I cant find ovulation sticks anywhere!(i am overseas in pakistan) so im very nervous :/ Good luck with everything :)
Well clomid shoould make you have a period every mo. just Bd every other day, I think when on clomid we should O 5 to 10 days after we take our last pill. You can buy ovulation kits on line, did you try that? keep me posted on how your doing.SSBD
I am taking my last one today too was on 3-7 days. To answer your question, The day you O is all depends on the person I my self O on CD22-23 Some O CD14 or Cd19 it all depends and with that you will count from that time to the time your AF. Now when to take a pregnancy test to get the right answer not a - one you would have to wait to miss your mess. You might take it early and get a - but might be a + so I would wait I know I hate the waiting too but we have to to make sure. Some girls test a week or two after they O but not always does it show. I hope it help and I SSBD your way best of luck.
thank you so much for the advise..I cant wait to see the results.My doctor also has me on metformin 500mg so he said more than likely I will be pregnant,But I think hes just telling me that so I will get my hopes up and feel better about it all.Im on the metformin because my bloodwork came back and my insulin and glucose ratios were mixed up.its a type 2 diabetes medicine but he said Im no where near diabetic..but he said that medicine will also increase my chances of getting pregnant. Has anyone else's doctor told them this?!?
Yeah I hear that metformin is good and yes it helps more with getting a + my doctor wanted to put me on just that but I told him no I will take clomid. and it all depends on when you O the doctor give you that number because it for normal girls..lol.. but like me I O late like on CD22-23, and I have not heared having to much sex mess everything up I hear that it helps more to have it every other day after your Cd12 just to make sure you dont miss O. I do all the way till after two three days after I O just to cover all my bases I am on a mission girl... Well I hope you get your BFP and stay stress free that dont help much when you stress... Good luck and keep me posted.. SSBD
okay thanks so much for the help. I will definitly keep everyone updated...does it matter if I take the clomid the same time everyday or not? I wasnt sure. On my medicine bottle it says before bedtime, but I usually dont go to bed until around 3 or 4 anyways. So since tonight was the 1st night taking it i just took it at 10...should i take it at 10 for the next 4 days?
Yes you will dont worry. You will O as long as is in your body yes.. :)
I started taking mucinex today since I am suppose to O sometime this week end. I read about how to take mucinex with the Clomid to help with the CM make it better . I was going to use pre-seed but I dont need no infections I am way sen to those thing. SO I am using mucinex to make CM better for lil swimmers.. SSBD your way..
you can but I take the baby kind lol... I hate pills so I take the liquid one. the pill is better because you only have to take one a day. I have to take mine 3 times a day. But make sure its the that only has guaitenesin (expectorant) nothing else if you get the pill it last 12 hours and that great. I am seeing change in my CM already I make thick CM so they told me to try guaitenesin that it maks it better for swimmers and anything I can do to help them I will. This is the frist time I am trying this and it seams to be working.
FYI: If you take Robitussin: You will want to find a cough syrup with has the ONLY active ingredient as guaifenesin. Any other ingredients can limit the effect you are looking for.
Recommended dosage is two teaspoons (200 mg) taken orally three times per day. If mucus still appears thick, you can take as the maximum dosage as listed on the label of the cough medicine. Water intake should be increased to encourage cervical mucus production and a full glass should take with each dose of guaifenesin. Most doctors suggest taking Robitussin five days before and including the day of ovulation for a total of 6 days during your cycle.This helps provide the optimal environment to help the sperm survive and get to where they need to go. If you take Clomid, waiting until the day after the last Clomid pill is taken before starting Robitussin is suggested.
If you take Mucinex: Until recently, Guaifenesin in pill format, had usually required a doctor's prescription but you can now buy Mucinex over the counter. Take 200mg of Mucinex with a full glass of water, three times per day. If cervical mucus does not become thinner, increase dosage to maximum allowed on the label. Take during the 5 days before ovulation, and the day of ovulation. There is no advantage in taking guaifenesin during the rest of your cycle, because the quality of your cervical mucus is only important at the time of intercourse. In fact, your cervical mucus is supposed to be thick and sticky during the rest of your cycle (when you're not ovulating), as a defense against any organisms that may find their way into the vagina.
so can I still get pregnant without taking robitussan or muxinex? because Im on enough medicine lol I dont wanna take anymore that I have to...and I was 24 minutes late from taking my clomid last night..shouldnt that be okay?
Yes you can start now I did for the same reason I want to make sure I do everything right this time. all it does is make it EWCM and that is what you want. So go for it girl...
To savannah You dont have to take it if you dont want to. I know I hate taking meds but since I think my CM is the problem I will kerp taking mine I have seen a change will keep checking and see tom if its any better. I am on the liquid kind. It dont hurt to take it it helps just to break up CM to EWCM thats all.
SSBD and Good luck girls.. we have to get BFP this month....
I havent had my period in 2 days but I still took the clomid. tonight will be my last pill.. will i still ovulate at the same time as the doctor told me or will it come sooner? Im so confused because I thought I would have a period for atleast 6 days but I only had one for 4 days.
Yeah I had mine short too I guess its the meds. But I hear that it all depends on the person if they O early or not I O late But the doctor said that I should O earlyer this time since I took 100mg 3-7 days. So I dont really know but I do know it maybe early this time beacause I started testing 3 days ago and got a lil lite line and I dont ever get that on till day 12 or 13 when I see a lil change and I got some lil cramping today on my left side so maybe early who knows will let you know if I O early. then you know if you will too?? I always O late on 21-23cd but doc told me he wants it early. SO will see if he is right..lol.. I wish you the best keep me posted.
OH and Girls the muxinex is my new best friend my DH LOVES IT!!!! I dont need lube but man this just makes things a whole lot more fun better when its your own lube. I have the most CM ever with muxinex that the lil swimmers stay where they need to like glue... lol..
Well girls SSBD your way and I will keep you posted.... I hope to all your BFP soon...

well I took an ovulation test yesterday and today and both days I only got one line:( so I hope you all are having better luck then me. Dr told me that I should ovualte tomorrow but from the looks of it I think Im gonna have to be put on a higher miligram. Bc I dont think the 50mg did any good. Good luck to all you ladies. I wish you guys luck
I was on 50mg 3x a day 5-10 I was taking 1 in the morn 1 evening and 1 night this is my second round. Then I started reading on the forum where some ladies was taking there's all at one time so I called and ask dr they said all at one time so on my last day I took them all. Even though I took it like that I still ovulated.
I wish you luck
Im not giving up girl its just so depressing. Im sure you know that lol. But Im callin the dr tomorrow and Im gonna see if he cant start me on the 100mg asap. Im hoping he will...Im so impatient when it comes to this. I just want a positive pregnancy test then I'll be okay lol... good luck to all of u...keep us informed.
Hi i was reading all your advise and what you was all doing, then it just stop :( i was told i have pco and was looking into clomid just would me nice to here some success story's please give some hope.
Can you change which day you take it on? My doctor told me to take it on days 2-6 but it gives me terrible abdominal pains around day 14 which is obviously my most fertile time meaning my partner and I can't... You know, as it's too painful. So I'm hoping I can change the days so maybe the pains come after my most fertile time. This would be my 3rd month on clomid.
