Starting clomid...Any advice?


To begin with, I am SUCH an over planner. I plan for everything.. With that being said, I've been researching EVERYTHING I can about clomid, and am somehow not satisfied with the advice I've found on the internet.

I have an ultrasound scheduled for January 11th, just to make sure everything is alright. I then will start progesterone to trigger AF, and clomid on days 5-9. Is there any advice, helpful hints, or things that worked for you? (Even a !!YOU CAN DO THIS!! will work hahah)

I've only been TTC #1 for about 5 months, so I was surprised my Doctor was so quick to prescribe Clomid. Anyways, I think I just needed to vent a little bit.

Following.

I’m on day 3 of Clomid. There’s a lot of mixed messages on the Internet. My prescription says to take it days 3-7 of my cycle, but he gave me 6 pills??? The pharmacist was confused, so I’ll call the doctor tomorrow to check if he wants me to take it for 6 days or not. My cycle is usually around 32 days, and I read that sometimes if the woman has a longer cycle, you take it for 6 days. But then some people say never for 6 days. I guess we will see.

I took Clomid 5 years ago with no luck. I did have horrible symptoms, but not this time (so far). I do ovulate on my own, but I’m hoping for a boost. Im almost 35, but doctor said my ovaries are more like a 40 year old.

Good luck to us!!!

hi mrsharper...how did you make out? I just finished clomid days 5-9, I triggered last night and I have my IUI scheduled for tomorrow. Side effects were minimal...hot flashes and a few headaches. I have 3 mature follicles to work with this cycle...praying one sticks!

hi momwithbabies... how are you making out this cycle??

I actually had to take provera to trigger AF, which just happened today! So I’ll take the clomid days 5-9! FX for you and I’ll post again when something more happens!

Hope: Things are good but a little confusing. I got a solid smiley face (peak) on my Clearblue Advanced, but I’m still getting negatives on the cheapies. My temp hasn’t gone up yet, but I’m hoping they do very soon.

I have read about taking black cohosh in combination w Clomid can greatly increase success rates, but I'm not sure about the dosage or time frame. May be worth a Google!

I will have to google black cohosh ..never heard of it, but thank you for the tip!

@momwithbabies ....I always use the pink dye tests, not sure why but I heard they are more accurate! Hopefully you get your BFP!
