Hello new here!!!

My name is Frankie and I have been trying to conceive for about 6 months naturally. I have a conditions that doesn't allow me to ovulate. I am on a drug now to induce my cycle then I start a five day run on a fertilty drug called Serophene. I have seen alot of post that mention Clomid, not sure if i am taking the same thing?

The reason for posting this is to get info on this drugs and I want to hear from people who have used serophene or any other clomiphene citrate drug? Possitive and negative affects. I want to know my chances of concieving and what my body is about to go through.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Frankie

Hi Frankie. I don't know if I will be able to help you out much, but I have been on clomid for the past 4 cycles. My dh and I are both 26 and have been ttc#1 for almost 2 years. I took 50mg of clomid, cd 5-9. I o'd on my own before I started taking clomid, but it was a really weak o. While I took the clomid, I experienced hot flashes, moodiness and my cm became really dry. My doctor then put me on guafenisen to help my ewcm quality. Guafenisen is the prescription form of Robitussin. We found out a few weeks ago through a post-coital test that my body is killing the sperm before they can make it through my cervix. I am going this week to talk to a specialist and will most likely undergo IUI in order to conceive. I'm not for sure at this point if they will want me to stay on clomid or any other fertility drugs or to try IUI on a non-medicated cycle.

I wish I could help you out more. I have known of a lot of women who have gotten pg on clomid. My dh's aunt got pg on her 3rd clomid cycle and a friend of mine got pg on her 2nd clomid cycle. You might check out the clomid/ovulation induction board for more help or to find more people who have had experience with these kind of drugs.

I wish you lots of luck and hope that this drug does the trick for you.
