Clomid round 3 anyone else?


Hello ladies!

Today I started my 3rd round of Clomid 50mg days 5-9. I have been TTC for over 20 months and am starting to get seriously impatient.

First round of Clomid ended with a BFN. We did 50mg days 3-7. My cycle was 29 days long (usually have a 30/31 day cycle). The only side effects I had were extreme hotflashes. I also started at 8dpo (I've never spotted before). I had two positive OPKS 5 days apart... One on cycle day 14 and one on cycle day 19. So I have no clue when/if I ovulated that cycle.

Second round of Clomid was very strange! I took Clomid 50mg days 5-9. No hotflashes or any other type of symptoms. On cycle day 14 AF showed up!!! I could not believe it. That has never happened to me before and I've never even heard of that happening. So it was a complete waste because I did not have enough time to ovulate or anything

3rd round of Clomid starts today and I am praying for a normal full length cycle!!! Hopefully ending with a BFP :-) We will have to wait and see but they do always say that the third time is the charm!

Well anyone else who is currently taking Clomid and wants to wait out the cycle with me pls join in :-) I like having cycle buddies to talk to!

I just did my third cycle of clomid 300mg this month. All times before that on lower dosages never worked to make me ovulate (have done 7 cycles in total). I am CD16 today and last 2 cycles I ovulated on CD18... so playing the waiting game... hoping 3rd time actually is the charm

Yay! I will keep my fingers crossed for you :-) I'm only on CD 6 so I have a long ways to go lol. Do you do any kind of monitoring? Ultrasounds and etc? I'm on my 3rd round of Clomid and my doctor still has not done any kind of monitoring... Not even to see if I actually ovulate or if Clomid 50mg works! I'm so frustrated. I had to call her and ask if we could do a progesterone day 21 blood work to confirm ovulation. I need a new doctor asap! Oh and yesterday she "forgot" to order my prescription with the pharmacy for my Clomid. I didn't get a hold of her until the clinic was almost closed. Lol sorry need to vent apparently. Anyways good luck! What kind of OPKs do you use?

I'm 7dpo on my 3rd round (details in my signature). I got AF at 9dpo last cycle so really want the next couple of days to go quickly so I can know if it's worked!
I haven't had any monitoring either, plus my GP just prescribed me 3 more cycles whilst I wait for our fertility clinic referral to go through.

Only monitoring I get is CD23 bloods to check for ovulation and then see my OBGYN after for results... we are taking it one month at a time. You can go to a GP and ask for a blood test to check for ovulation - my OBGYN does mine for me, but one time I needed a GP to authorise one because by OBGYN was away.

I didn't use OPKs the past cycles at all - this time I am using just the ovuplan ovulation dip strips. They haven't detected my LH surge yet, but I test each afternoon at the same time, so this arve I am hoping to get a positive on it seeming my temp has dipped today just like it has the last 2 cycles. FX...

Big fat smiley on my digital OPK last night and on the test line darker than control line on my cheapy OPK strip too! If I am this happy about ovulation, cannot imagine how excited I will be when we get a very low awaited positive pregnancy test haha.

Hey Glad to hear you get no side effects on the clomid. I am on 300mg and get this weird sensation that my body is bouncing when I sit or lie down.

Hope this round of clomid works for you too

Morning all, I'm just wondering if the side effects will start now as im on 5th day after taking it, last time I had 3 rounds of 50mg from gp with no monitoring while waiting to see fs, I had the worst ovary pain but had a 50 day cycle and then 2 34 day cycles, I think I had more side effects on 50mg!
I'm getting scared for Monday that the scan isn't going to show anything, really trying to stay positive without getting my hopes up too much ,I hate the disappointment if it doesnt work!
How is everyone else feeling today? Xx
