I came on this board months and months ago when I first started TTC...well 14 months later here I am again!!

I recently started doing the ovulation tests again, I bought the ones off amazon. Does anyone use them? I guess I am confused with the lines. The past few days my line has been somewhat similar to the test line....

I will also be starting Clomid on day 5 of my next cycle. Does anyone have any stories for me regarding clomid?

Hi Jill, welcome back! I don't personally have any expierience with the Amazon oculation kits, sorry. Af for Clomid, I took that for 5 months earlier this year. I took the 50 mg dose for 5 days a month for four of the 5 cycles and didn't have any issues, I did the 100 mg dose one month and it nearly killed me with migraines. Obviously, Clomid wasn't the "cure" for us, because I'm still here, but I have a friend that got preggers on her second month of clomid!

Hi Jill! I have never taken Clomid, but one of my good friends took it after 2 years of TTC, and got PG right away. I know it isn't the answer for everyone, but it definitely does work for some! Good luck!

Welcome! I have experience with both. I love my Wandfos from Amazon b/c I can use 10 a day & not be in the poor house, lol. They don't work for everyone however. There were a few times I had a hard time telling so I just cut the strip in 2 between the lines & once I overlapped them it was easier to compare. Now Clomid I did 4mths worth & it didn't work for me but we suspect I have some thyroid issues preventing a pg so I can't really judge how accurate it was for me. I will say for me I thought it created what I call Clomid induced bi-polar. Your hormones are so much stronger & make you so emotional. Therefore if you feel crazy just tell SO it's the drugs :) GL & FX it works the 1st time!!
