Post subject: Clomid
Hi, I am very new to this forum thing. But I just was wondering if anyone had any experience with taking Clomid? I took my fist round of clomid day 3-7 starting on May 13th. OPK said i peeked on May 23rd. Today is CD 27. When should I take a test? Now you also must know that I was diagnosed with PCOS so my cycles are not normal at all. I actually had to take progesterone to get my cycle back on track this time because I had an 83 day cycle! So I dont know what my average cycle lengths actually are. The one before my 83 day cycle was 35 days.

Hi - I am also taking clomid at the moment - i take it from day 2-6, I normally ovulate about day 13 to 14 but dont always get signs which is why most months I do a day 21 blood test to see if I am ovulating. I am not sure when to suggest testing but I would have thought the clomid would regulate you a bit. I too have PCO but not PCOS as I have veryregular 28 day cycles and dont have weight issues or excess hair etc. Clomid worked for me when I had my first daughter. Good luck x

I've just started going for all the blood tests etc after not conceiving after a year of trying. I also now have a really irregular cycle - last one was 70 days. How many tests and things did you have to go through before you were prescribed with clomid? At the moment I'm just playing a waiting game and it is so frustrating!

Post subject: Hello
I took clomid last month on day 2 to 5 of my cycle, scan was on day 10 of cycle but showed 3 follicles so treatment abandoned as the hospital thought it could result in a multiple pregnancy! We were really disappointed...now just waiting for AF to arrive, was supposed to arrive yesterday and don't want to do a test incase its a BFN! Has anyone else on clomid experienced AF being late due to being on clomid?

Hi Redbunny, we hae been TTC No 2 for 3 years now and I am now taking my 3rd lot of clomid. (4th month) I fell with my first daughter after just 2 months of clomid, I have PCO but do ovulate with the clomid. It was 7 years ago so things can change but according to all my tests and my lap and dye I am okay. Clomid makes me feel like [*@!#%*] - bloated, moody pains in my stomach, the list goes on however I am persevering because I want another child. My cycles are normally spot on 28 days although last month was 26 and the time before 30? May be something to do with the clomid. I am sorry IUI didnt work - we were going to have that but were advised not to and go straight for IVF which we are doing in Sept. Good luck xx

Hi Terina, thanks for your reply. AF arrived today on day 30 when I, like you, always have a 28 day cycle so it must have been the clomid...DH and I are very disappointed, yet another long month of waiting......consultant advised not to take clomid this time as last time resulted in too many follicles so lets see what shows up on my 10 day scan next Friday, fingers crossed they can go ahead with the treatment and more importantly it works, feels like we have been waiting a lifetime to get pregnant and at 31 I am getting very concerned! How come you were advised to go straight for IVF? DH and I are thinkng of giving clomid one more shot this month then asking consultant to let us have IVF...hope you're IVF goes well in September and you don't have to wait too long for BFP xx

Hi Redbunny. In answer to your question (and I didnt want to say this so I so hope you dont mind) but we were told IUI has [*@!#%*] results and that 5 or 6 attempts at that would cost the same as having a go at IVF where the results were better. I am still taking clomid, I have another 3 months left so I am hoping and praying that we get lucky before we have to go down the IVF route. I wish you all the luck with your next try xx
