See i never reall got a regular period, so i was put on Provera to induce AF, then clomid 5-9 then bd 14-16, then if BFN by cd 30 then i start my next cycle. So while ttc#1 i didnt use opks, or guifinsen ( i spelled it wrong, mucinex lol) i didnt use anything special, just did what Dr told me. I did get blood work dont right before getting my BFP to tell me that i was ovulating, then the week after i got my BFP. And i didnt have many symptoms, other than nausia for one day and thats about it, my typical preg symptoms didnt come on til after i found out, and i got my bfp on 14dpo...im saying ovulation b.c. i am just going off of the days cd14-16 not sure exaclty what day i Od.
This round ttc#2, i am going to take mucinex, i bought the max strenght with pure guifisen in it. I read to take last day of clomid (cd 9) up to O day, so i am probably going to take through til cd16 (last day of bd). See when i finally got preg. my af came on its own and i didnt need to induce af with provera, and that has happened this round so far, so i am praying it is a sign that my body is indeed doing what its suppose to so i have a postive feeling about this round.
I dont know if i am going to use opks this round i didnt last because the month before i did and it just made me crazy. So im not sure yet, but just relax, and it will happen, clomid is great stuff!
My sister in law, has pcos and got preg her 1st round on 50mg clomid so everyone is different. You can try using the guifisen, i am giving it a try it cant hurt!

Hi CRC25!

I have now done a total of 5 cycles of clomid. Two at 50mg, two at 100 mg and one at 150 mg. I have yet to get a BFP but I have produced a mature follicle and ovulated every month on it. I took it cycle days 5 to 9 like you and found that if I took it at night before bed the side effects were less. On the 50 mg I had virtually no side effects, other than the occasional hot flash. The first month I did 100 mg I took it in the morning so I did notice some headaches and hot flashes so when I did the second 100 mg and the 150 mg I went back to at night. Every woman reacts differently to clomid so if you experience a lot of side effects you are not alone.

With respect to how clomid actually works - it is an estrogen inhibitor. Essentially your pituitary gland tells your ovary to make follicles via the hormone FSH. Once the ovary starts to develop the follicle a message is sent back from the ovary to the pituitary in the form of estrogen which stops the FSH production. By blocking the estrogen feedback the drugs like clomid, femara, tamoxifen should in theory have your pituitary sending more FSH to develop more follicles. Some of the drawbacks of clomid are uterine lining thining as well as drying up your CM. My husband and I use pre-seed to help with the dryness and if you are being monitored through your cycle with u/s ask them about your lining thickness as they can put you on progesterone if its too thin

I was only ever able to develop one follicle on clomid, which is why when I chose to do my next cycle with drugs it will be with an injectable which provides your body with more FSH.

Any other questions ask away!

I have done 2 cycles of 50 mg of clomid w/IUI, and got pregnant on the 2nd one. I had absolutely no side effects from the clomid, and I took it in the evening after dinner. With the 1st cycle, I took it cd 5-9, and on the 2nd one I took it cd 3-7.

Fingers crossed for you!

Hi there

I'm on my 3rd cycle of clomid 100mg. I produced 4 mature follies the first cycle, and 3 on the 2nd. I take it CD3-7. My biggest (and most annoying) side effect is the mood swings! I really feel out of my mind by the time I get to the last dose of the cycle. But, it's only temporary

Good luck!!
