Thanks Angela! Still waiting for AF. Thinking about calling dr and see if we can jump start it bc I'm 100% not pg bc of the lap. How long are your cycles usually? Are you having any symptoms?

Hi everyone, I am new to this sight and wanted to join the family.
To sum everything up I had a few rounds of letrozole and gonal f and got my that ended in a MC at 10 wks. This would have been my first everything at 34
That was two years ago, during that time I was trying naturally with no luck. So I decided to try clomid on my own since I wouldn't be able to make the doctor trip every other day to get monitored with the injectibles.
I was put on 2000mg metformin and 100 mg clomid which I started days 3-7 of my cycle. Today I am on CD8 and according to FF I'm suppose to ovulate next weekend. I hope that is the case because I have been reading that Clomid make us ovulate late that night be the only time I get to see dh since he works out of town and only comes home on the weekends.
I only use temp and opk for ovulation, cm has always been impossible for me so Preseed is my best friend. Fx to every one catching an egg this month and lots of baby dust.

I would hun see if they will put you on something to kick start the AF. My CD is normally around 30 days I do AF every month but I'm a long time contraceptive pill user from the age of 16-30 wen I came off it Ttc in Nov 2013, so my AF is all over the place I can never predict when it will happen each month and don't suffer from period pains. My AF did regulate last year for around 4 months and in this time I did BFP but Mc at 6wks and now the past 2months they have irregulate again. I wasn't hopeful this month that Clomid would work for me but now I am since my bloods. I do hope this works and me and my husband get our perfect family that we crave.

do you suffer from anything like PCOs have they put you on anything else alongside Clomid to help begin your cycle x

Welcome it's always nice to hear someone's story good luck hun. Well I've heard it can cause late O too I'm CD23 neg on OPK still but my bloods came back that I am ovulating so I think I may have missed it on OPK as I only test once a day in the morning only x are you being monitored by a doctor

Angela I was I long time a BCP user too about 13 years I believe. I actually should have known I had endometriosis when I was 15 bc my dr put me on BCP to deal with my horrendous periods. But oh well! My cycles were always 29-32 days apart but know I'm going on CD 35! I'm just really worried something's wrong. I'm itching to start Clomid and bding but AF won't show. At this point when she does show I hope its not painful. The dr mentioned PCOS so I don't believe so. If you're already CD 23 out of maybe 30 you could be really close to a BFP!

Hi mocha! I'm sorry for your loss. Thanks for sharing. How is temping? Have you had any clomid side effects?

Here's hoping guys I think I am in my 2ww I really hope it works I know my bloods where good but that's no guarantee that I am pregnant just that I ovulated which is good news. I've heard others on these threads that you can get drugs from your doctor that can help bring on AF and regulate it. I've decided though that Im not going to test till 1st March if AF doesn't show wish me luck.

Got some news today from a friend who moved to Australia she's just had a baby girl didn't even know she was pregnant went hospital with severe abdominal pain and found out she was actually in labour, I'm absolutely made up for her but also feel envious and upset as everyone around me is finding it so easy to conceive why is it so difficult for me. Finding these forums has helped speaking to people in the same boat as me and understand what I'm going through xx

Angela for sure!! I know the feeling every time one of my friends tells me she's pregnant I feel like I've been punched in the stomach. I'm always so excited for them but there's also the feeling why not me?! And the constant reminder from everyone and I feel like I don't personally know anyone else that has had to go through all this just to get pregnant. I'm so lucky to have all you ladies to vent to! Bc all the waiting drives me crazy! I'm still waiting for AF.... going to call the re office in a couple hours to see what I can do.

I have my fingers toes and everything crossed for you Angela!!

Keep me posted what they say hun it must be really frustrating waiting that long to AF it would drive me crazy,

I know exactly how you feel hun everyone around me is having or had children and all talk about how easy it was for them. When I tell them about my MC they reply 'it was just not meant to be' and when I tell them about my struggle they say 'it'll happen when it will happen' they mean well but them phrases annoy me and make me feel like screaming at them. Also people who don't know how hard it is and because your married they say things like 'no kids yet' or so 'no news of any pitter patter of tiny feet, when can we expect kid's' I wish I could tell them but I can't. It doesn't help that my husband is an only child aswell and his parents are desperate for grandchildren.

Here's hoping we all get our Clomid babies we all dream of I am feeling more positive about things since my blood results and hoping I get my BFP and you do too.

Hello again gals!

Metformin is normally used for sugars with people who suffer from diabetes. It has been known more recently for helping to regulate cycles and such so I'm keeping my fingers crossed! Metformin paired with Clomid works wonders (so I've heard from doctors). However, I've been on metformin since November (was increased about 1.5 weeks ago) and still nothing, no af, no bfp, nothing. I'm on cd250 (since I started tracking that is) but haven't had af in about 6 years. URGH!! I'm hoping this new dose will get things working again...

Oh god Ursela I really hope you get your AF with the help your getting keep me posted how you get on, I've been TTC since Nov 2013 in that time had one MC at 6 wks, done all fertility tests and RE put it down to unexplained fertility. I started Clomid in Jan 2016 50mg and went for my CD21 bloods which showed I was ovulating, anything over 30 is a good signing I got 96. I'm on CD23 not temping but do OPK each day and still negative today. I am now assuming due to my blood results that I have already Od and just missed it on OPK as only do once a day. I'm hoping that I'm already in my TWW as husband and I have just come down with flu so haven't been able to do any BDing the last two days and looks like we won't be able to for another few days either so wish me luck.

AF should show around 22nd so I'm guessing the countdown begins xx
