I got pregnant on my first round of clomid 50 mg days 5-9.  I miscarried at 6 weeks though.

I took clomid but with no success.  My doc told me that probability of success is about 10% per cycle.  So, it's not a magic pill.  Simply, it ensures that you ovulate.  Most people who become pregnant with clomid do so during their first 3 cycles.  Also, your doc should explain on which cycle days to take clomid since that may depend on the reasons for clomid.  Good luck!!!!

I'm still waiting to find out if it worked for me this first round.

I was on 50mn days 3-7.  Then I took Estradiol (estrogen) days 8-12, and progesterone suppositories day 17 on.

I'm on CD 28 today.  I had a trigger shot on CD 15 and I'm not supposed to test until day 30.  But, I started testing to see when the trigger was out of my system (I'd get a negative test when the hcg from the trigger was gone).  But, I havent gotten a negative yet!

I dont know if it's still the shot or if it's early pregnancy, but I'll let you know as soon as I do!

The was my first cycle of clomid 50 mg.  I took it days 5-9.  I have some pretty good pregnancy symptoms so I guess we will see.  I will find out on Sat.

Im really scared now to start Clomid cause I see a cycle of using it getting pg and m/c... very scared now and I dont know what to do... I dont think I could mentally handle a m/c... God, tell me what to do...


SO SCARED!!!!
237300 tn?1231454718
I would start it...according to all the info. it doesn't increase your chances of m/c.  My friend took it and she is 20 weeks preg...her friend took it and is also 20 weeks preg.  I also know another woman who took it and has a 7 year old.  There are good stories out their don't worry.

I have no idea how clomid work, I will start my first clomid 50mg tomorrow 3 - 7 and start Estradiol 8-12 then inject novarel when my dr. find mature follicle.  hopefully this time work.

I read something that said 80% of women who take clomid will get pregnant while on it...but something like 50% of those will end in miscarriage.  I don't think the clomid increases your risk of miscarriage, I just think it's whatever is going on with your body.  I took prometrium for 7 days to start my period, and then I took the clomid days 5-9 of my cycle.  As soon as my period stopped I BD every other day.  I went for progesterone check on CD21.  They called and said that my progesterone level showed that I had definately ovulated.  I also used OPK's and I did the whole BBT thing.
294043 tn?1354207946
Clomid does not increase your chances of a m/c.  It simply helps ovulation.  There is nothing scary about clomid; it's a very safe drug.  the only serious side-effect is possible ovarian cysts but if your doc monitors you it should not be a problem.

I did three rounds of clomid ranging from 50mg to 150 mg.  Unfortunately i was not successful on clomid but I did get all of the wonderful side effects.  Watch out for the hot flashes, headaches, and my personal favorites - the mood swings.  These side effects lasted alll cycle for me.  Also beware that many of the other side effects of clomid nausea, tender breasts, some cramping are also signs of early pregnancy.  Good luck and SSBD to you!

I started Clomid this past Saturday, started in day 5 of menses. But I'm also combining it with the Metformin 500mg, 3 * a day. I wish you luck! Me too! I know it can be very emotional, I tend to think about it all the time, and worry, but the truth is, you really need to focus, and get on with everyday activites. I tend to think about it, and get real upset, that gets you no where. I'm really praying that the Clomid works as well. Keep us up to date girl! ! ! !

Hello!

I took clomid, days 3-7, 50 mg, and got pregnant on round #2.  I had twins, one of which didn't develop, but the other baby did and now I have a beautiful 3.5 year old boy.

I think when people see miscarriages with clomid, it's because they are being watched so carefully that they find out they are pregnant much earlier than they normally would, so they are aware of miscarriages very early in the cycle that if ttc naturally without doctor intervention, they probably wouldn't know about. I would have never known about that twin if I hadn't been being scrutinized with an ultrasound probe every week from very early on!  Most pregnancies do result in miscarriage, naturally, so women going through fertility treatments just are more informed about when that happens.

Are you doing IUI in combination with clomid, or just clomid alone?

Good Luck!  I just started my first cycle of clomid 2 days ago so we are on the same page pretty much I guess.  I will keep you posted with my success.  By the way my aunt got pg on cycle 2 and her daughter is now 8.
