Hi Krissie,

I am taking 50mg Clomid days 1 through 5. The first month I ovulated around my normal of 19 days. I am trying the 50 mg for one more month since I am already into the cycle now, but I was just told that it will increase for our third cycle to 100mg.

I guess I have been very fortunate with the side effects of all the medications. The metformin causes some slight dizziness once in a while. However, I dislike waking up in the middle of the night drenched in sweat with a BBT of 97.1. Go figure. DH says I'm just weird. lol

Krissie, I hope AF passes you by and you get your BFP!

dog mommy: I haven't been diagnosed with endometriosis but I know what it is. Have you been diagnosed with it? Has af showed up for you yet so you can start?

Krissie: By the looks of your signature you have good news? Waiting for an official update!

AFM: Increasing my metformin seemed to be a good idea. I've had spotting 2 days of the past 4...I should hear by the end of this week about getting a gynaecologist appointment and if nothing happens by then, clomid!

Sending hope to everyone

Hope you guys don't mind if I join, I've been TTC since Nov 2013 no fertility issues long time contraceptive pill user I'm 32 and had a natural BFP in Aug 2015 but MC at 6wks and BFN since started Clomid first time in Jan CD 2-6 had neg on Opks since I'm in CD21 now I normally O around CD 14 but nothing. Been for bloods today so got to phone for results tomorrow and if AF starts this month then they will start follicle tracking next month. I'm currently on 50 mg and took at night before bed didn't have any side effects apart from a couple of little hot flushes and a little moody if you listen to my husband ��. Was wondering how everyone is getting on qith Clomid and if it also caused late O I'm hoping I had a short O and missed it on OPK as I only tested once a day in the morning I don't temp either too much hassle

Ursaula yeah when Dr did an u/s to see why we weren't conceiving they found two endometriomas on my ovaries :/ but I got those removed I'm still waiting on AF... getting really annoying I thought I had started but just spotting. I found out my progesterone is low so that is probably causing the spotting. What does metformin do?

Hi Angela! I'm so sorry to hear about your loss
I haven't started clomid yet. Still waiting on AF and another u/s to mAke sure I don't have cysts again.

Hopefully you get some info tomorrow on whats going on!

And good luck with your tests I'll keep my fingers crossed for you that everything is fine and you can start on clomid, have you ever taken it before I'm a first timer and these threads have taught me alot so far and helped me get the right advice from my RE

Well got some exciting news about my bloods today they said that I'm ovulating yeeyyyy so happy. They said anything over 30 is a good sign and mine are 96 which is extremely good. They can't explain why I've had no positive on the OPK but said the bloods are more accurate and precise and everything is showing as good news I'm so relieved plenty of BDing for me or I could already be in my 2ww who knows I will keep you all posted cross your fingers for me girls.

That's great news Angela! That's really a nice number. Maybe the opks missed it. I think this cycle I'm going to try one opk in morning and one at night bc I'm nervous about missing it! I haven't tried clomid yet but I'm so excited! I've heard about the side effects but they don't worry me

Thanks hun, I know I was so shocked when she told me the number as because I've no positive on Opks and I'm now CD22 I really thought I hadn't Od and thought I was out of the running so I'm going to keep going with Opk just incase I haven't already, I'm wondering whether my cycle is regulating again which means I won't O till 14th of the month or I could already be in the 2ww who knows but Im feeling so much more positive now. How are you getting on what CD you up too x

Angela I'm going on CD 34 which is very rare for me but I guess the lap "stressed" my body so im still waiting for AF so I can start the new cycle with clomid. What was it that they checked on you? Progesterone?

Well I hope your AF comes soon hun so you can begin your journey, I tested again and still neg on OPK I'm also how to put it quite dry but I know that can be a side effect. Yes it's was my progesterone level they checked they said I'm definitely ovulating with results like that. I didn't really have any side effects but I took it at night so probably slept through them. I'm going to keep Opk each day but will stop I think after another 5 days as I know then that I must have missed it on OPK x
