Clomid...

Hi ladies,

I went to the doctor today and she started me back on the progesterone, and gave me Clomid.  I'm very hopeful that this will work, and so is my husband.  However, he's a bit nervous about the slight chance of multiples.  I know that whatever we are given, we can handle.  I was also told by my doctor that the Clomid has been known to make people feel really crappy.  But, it's only for a few days, right?  Do any of you have any words of wisdom about taking Clomid?  I've had a hard time these last few weeks because I've seen faint positives on tests, and they ended up being nothing.  I'm hoping I'll get a strong positive after this cycle!  Thanks for your continued support!

Hi Casey,

 

I have just finished my second cycle on clomid. What dosage are they starting you on? I was on 50mg my first cycle, and I didn't have side effects from that dosage. However, this cycle I was on 100 mg and I was noticeably more moody on the 5th day of taking it and just a few days afterwards.

My first cycle I still didn't have a strong enough O, but this time around, my progesterone level was 28.5, so it definitely worked! It was very exciting to know that something finally went right! However, I still have not gotten my BFP and will be starting my 3rd round of clomid early next week.

I know there is a slight risk of multiples, but I feel it's definitely worth that risk to have a family. So good luck, and I hope it works for you!

I am also starting out on 50mg, hopefully that will do the trick!  That is so exciting that your progesterone level was that high!  Mine was super low last time I got my blood work done.  Good luck on your third cycle, hopefully third time is the charm!
