So my Doc. is starting me on colmid next month and he said he would start me a 50mg twice a day so 100mg a day, it that too high to start off at?? I always get an LH surge but we have been ttc for 2 years now.  I know there are draw backs to clomid.  So I don't know if i should start lower or just do what he says.

We all need to hope that the Doctors know what they are doing.... I was only on 50mgs my first cycle and now he put me on 100mg... I have read that some drs dont put you on 100 until atleast the 3rd cycle, But every case is different, he automatically told me he knew that I needed more since I did not ovulate at all last month.... I dont think starting at that dose will hurt you... Who knows you maybe one of the ones that gets pregnant on the first round... Baby Dust to you.... Just stay calm and know that the mood swings are sometimes terrible but they pass....

Good Luck......

Oh thats good to kow I thought that every one that is on clomid didn't have an LH surge.  I wasn't quite sure if there was a point to going on it, if I had an LH surge.  Now I feel better about going on it. How do you tell if your ovulating? the doc told me you could get an LH surge but still not be ovulating like letting off an egg.

Godd luck to you girls!!

Are you doing any charting.. and taking your temps?  How I know I have ovulated is by my temp spiking.. and staying up for at least three days... along with Opk's showing up positive a few days before... Also if you are good at checking you CM and cervical position.. then those two things would also line up around the same time.  I don't do the cervical position.. but I started trying to monitor my cm this month so we will see how it goes.

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.I am doing better.The bleeding has stopped but I am still cramping.The Dr told me that sometimes this happens if you get really constipated.(sorry tmi) He wants to run a test called a colonoscopy to are any see if there are polyps or cysts. I am going to wait a litle bit before getting the test done. Thank you all for your concern.
   Well, I am still going to TTC this month but "au naturale" no clomid. Acording to my bbt chart,I ovulate between cd14-18.So I am going to BD every other day starting cd 13.We'll see what happens.
  How is everyone else doing?
   If you are posting on a different post let me know so that we can continue to be cycle buddies.

Glad to hear your are doing better I am very happy to hear that.... Sometimes we just need to relax and take a break and try naturally and see what happens. Regardless its the Big Guys choice when it happens. Get some rest and regroup, once again Im glad your better.  Well im on cd2 and tomorrow I start my 100mg of clomid... Yikes, talk about needing prayer... Ive gained more weight then ever on this stuff and the mood swings last month were terrible.. So hopefully this month the mood swings will be less and with prayer will also get pregnant..... I used the OV watch last night for the first time to begin this cycle and I hope that also helps me through this....

Good luck to you and doing all natural..... Have you've tried the OV watch??? Since you know more or less when you ovulate it may help you since it tells you the 4 fertile days before ovulation... Little expensive but if it works its will be worth every dime.

hi

Selaiwa - Glad to hear you are getting better. You will get there. Positive thoughts!!!! I will be thinking of you.

I am posting on the thread: Summer IVF buddies aswell but I will be posting here too. I know you are all strangers  but after writing with you and following your journey I have to see where it ends up. Offcourse BFP for all!!!

I have been taking my IVF Gonal F meds for 4 days now and the headaches are really bad and constant. No bad moodswings yet but I know they will come. First time I burst out crying for no reason one day and just couldn't stop. I hope it happens at home and not out shopping or something. :)


Good luck everyone!!!!!!!! BFP for everyone this month!!!

i got put on clomid as my eggs (folicles) dont mature by the time their released as they only get to 14 mm (should be at least 16 mm for a healthy mature egg).
and clomid did work as i had 2 on my left and 1 messuring 22 mm on the right (would of been about 24 mm when i o) but unfortanetly it didn't end in pregnancy so am on my 3rd day of my 2nd cycle today.
when do you start clomid?

hi welcome to the group,
i haven't heard of femara, i take clomid days 2 to 6 and last month (which was my first cycle) i had no side effects and this cycle i've had really bad hot flushes and a  really bad migrain that lasted 2 days and was making me feel sick every time i ate or drank, and today i got like pulling pains in both ovaries. but you might be lucky not to get any side effects.
what cycle are you on now?

godil,

I also used 100 mg clomid from cd3-cd7. I had side effect. I heard some doc will give clomid and some femara. No Idea about femara personally but I m sure you doc have plan for you. But if u have anything in mind just ask them that will be good.
Take care and Good Luck

my 2 boys were concived easy to (i got told i would never have children in my teens as i have server endometrosis) with my 1st i was on the pill as i was on that to keep my hormones down after being on prostrap treatment.
with my 2nd i got rushed in with  a massive chocolate cysit on my ovary and got told i wasn't o'ing any more then later found out i was nearly 5 months pregnant, i've been trying for nearly 2 and half years now and i ovulate on my own there just not mature enough when i ovulate.
i finished my 2nd cycle today so will be doing opk in 3 days.
good luck in your 1st cycle :0)

I am really confused.. maybe someone can help me figure this out... This is the first month.. I seriously started using.. OPK's and I have test 2x a day since day 10... I could of sweared it looked positived in the pm on the 12... till the am on the 14th... but I wasn't sure so of course I kept testing... and switched to digi's since day 15.. and I got a SMILEY FACE a big positve.. this afternoon at 1pm.. so should I go with the digi over the others... And one other disaster I woke about before my alarm at like 6am.. took temp.. but I didn't go to bed till 2am.. and tossed and turned.. and didn't sleep soundly so at 6am.. I wasn't completely rested... but I fell back asleep and slept like a log till 11am.. and took temp then also.. Which temp should I go with... cause they are quite different... aggghhhh!!! Just when you think you have it figured out.. in comes a curve ball.

I would always get lots of CM sometimes 2 days  before I would get a +LH so I would just b'd both times to be sure.

Not sure about temps but I would still go by that temp as you had been in bed for more than 3 hrs. Maybe I am wrong. I only did temp tracking for 1 mht.

Good luck.

I think I will have my egg retrieval on monday so wish me luck that we get lots of good quality eggs. I feel so full at the moment, The thought of walking around until Monday like this freaks me out. Feel like I am going to burst.

Hope for the best for everyone. We need some BFP's this month.

hi i will have to look at that site. i was having scans everytime around ovulation and they were messuring 14 mm and under which isn't good, plus i had a m/c last june (i was nearly 4 months) and they reakon because i dont produce mature eggs that the on going pregnancy couldn't cope as it went on. but i must of been producing good eggs at some point cos i have 2 healthy boys so am worried that all the endo treatment i've had has effected them (as they make your body go through fake menopulse) and i've been having hormone tratment since i was 12.
i took my last pill for this cycle yesterday, then am doing next cycle and if that dont work am taking 2 months break then just going to take months 4 and 5 together (thats what my mum done when she fell pregnant with me and my twin.(we were triplets to beging with).
hope you get your bfp this month

Hello ladies,
   I feel great! I can't tell you what a relief it is just ttc natural. I have no stress!!!  It feels as if a huge weight has been lifted off me and I can enjoy life again! I haven't had any cramping or headaches since taking a break from clomid. YAY!!
   I am not using OPK's this month either. Yeah,I know it is pretty scary but I am sick of POAS .I am just going to BD every other day starting today till cd 20.
I am still checking my bbt and cervix so I pretty much have a good idea what to look for. My cervix is still too hard so I have a while to go before I O. I usually O on cd15 naturally but who knows what will happen this month off clomid.When my cervix is soft I know that I will O soon. Good luck!!!

hi there,
i am thankful i found this group. i started my first cycle of clomid last week on day 2-6.
i am only on 50mgs though. i have a long cycle normally so i am wandering what day i will be ovulating.... 10 days after the tablets seems to be the feeling of folkes out there.  will of course be doing opk and the temps .
i felt very wierd on the meds... very fuzzy headed. did anyone else feel like the living dead? very tired and emotional too.
anyway, my period only lasted 3 days and was so light! i usually suffer badly. that was nice!
so i hope it works. good luck to you all. i am gratefull for any advice out there:)

Hi everyone...I would like to join the group. My husband and I have been trying to conceive for 13 months. I started my first round of clomid Aug. 29-Sept. 2 cd 3-7. I had hot flashes, pretty substantial cramps, and fatigue. I got a positive OPK Sept. 14 cd 19...I was using 1st response and had clear blue easy digital OPK to confirm results from 1st response and both were positive so my husband and I did what we were supposed to. I am now cd 30 and have been experiencing severe nausea with dry heaving last night, fatigue, cramps, breast tenderness, and mild irritability. We took HPT cd 28 which was early according to O date but tested due to symptoms and got BFN. I am very hopeful that this is our month but scared to get my hopes up since it could lead to disappointment. Has anyone else experienced vommiting close to AF with clomid? I have never been sick or nauseous with AF. If AF does not come soon we will test again. Good Luck everyone!
