on to Clomid cycle #3....I think!

I'm on 14 DPO today and took a HPT....it was a clear negative.  Yesterday, I had a little spotting (pinkish creamy CM) one time.  Today I have had nothing so far.  I feel a little crampy but not like AF is coming.  It will probably hit me all at once.


I felt so much better throughout this cycle.  I was definitely more relaxed from not temping and obessing over IPS.  We did everything we were told to do... from all the bloodwork and u/s everything was always normal....so why have we hit the year mark with no success? 


Yesterday I had my breakdown...another failed month....what's wrong with me?  What can we do differently next cycle?  Do we move onto IUI?  Are there other tests my RE should be doing on us?  ahhhhh! 


I just needed to vent.  I'll KYP, I know it's not over until AF shows up!

Hang in there. Clomid didn't work for me but injectibles did. There is always another treatment, you are not at the end of

Ohh, I'm so sorry Lori.

Hey Lori,


I'm sorry this wasn't the cycle.


Are you being monitored during your cycle? Do you know if clomid is working for you and helping to grow follicles? Just asking bc clomid didn't work for me and I didn't know until I starated with my RE and the monitored me at cd12. We tried 50mg, 100mg and 150mg and none worked for me. I hope your next cycle is the cycle. Sorry about this one not working.


I'm thinking of you! Hugs!!
