BellaBoo- ovulation tests can not be clear, especially for women with PCOS but worth a shot!6 months seems to be the standard for how long you can take it but I have heard of other women being able to do 6 months of ferma after (similar results).

How are you guys feeling? What CD is everyone on?

AFM: Today is CD9, last day of clomid YAY! the side effects have been pretty rough. The hot flashes have been intense. This is the first month I have not gained weight on it (actually lost!) but I think that is mostly just because I upped my Metformin to 1500mg from 1000mg.

I'm on CD16 today and pretty sure I'm ovulating as I've been getting pretty bad cramps for the past couple of hours. I've been out all day though so not had chance to do an OPK. Dtd last night and held my legs in the air for a good 20 mins so fingers crossed that has done the trick lol!

How are you feeling?

I've lost some weight this cycle too but it's probably because I'm eating less because of the heat x

Hey girls! I went on holiday and have had lots of social events since so don't worry, I've put on weight for all three of us 😂

Fingers crossed for O and a successful legs in air Bella!

Clapper I feel your pain, I hated those hot flashes. Where in the world are you? We're in the middle of a pretty intense heatwave at the moment so I'm glad I'm not currently taking Clomid. Do you get low mood on them? Last cycle, I was horrendous, just felt so, so low. And I'm usually a very happy, laughy person.

AFM, CD 44. Prettt convinced I didn't ovulate. Counting down the days until I go back to the fertility doctor...

Thank you Steph

I'm in the UK and we are in the middle of a heat wave too. I'm fair skinned so not very good in heat

I felt really low on Clomid this time round. I even felt suicidal which was terryfying! Thankfully my low mood only lasted a couple of days.

When are you back at the fertility doctor Steph?

I don't have to go back for at least three months now. I've just been told to do 3 more cycles of Clomid then not sure what happens. I can go for tracker scans if I want to but the nurse said I don't have to because they have confirmed Clomid is making me O.

Oh I'm in Hertfordshire! Where abouts are you?

Oh Bella, you poor thing, that must have been terrible. I didn't get that bad thankfully but am dreading having to take it again if that's what he thinks I should do. Especially since he would probably up it to 150mg. I go back on 3rd July.

What Clomid dose are you on?

I'm on 100mg.

I live close to Manchester

How many times have you been on Clomid if you don't mind me asking?

I just did an OPK and it looks promising. I'll try and upload a pic x

Photo taken at 3 mins but dried even darker. Never done OPKs before so I'm hoping this is a good one

I'm no OPK expert but I'd say that it's almost as dark as the control so if it's got darker since I reckon you're well in there- you best starting getting down to it!

It hit 34 down here today, no fun when you're not by a pool with an ice cream is it?

We've only been on Clomid twice so far (but my word it feels like longer). Blood tests were shocking both times, not even close to O'ing. Which I think is why he's said not to take any more until we've seen him. Not sure what in store next, could be 150mg or I guess it could be something different altogether.

I really don't know if me and OH have the energy tonight but I'm going to try! This heat really isn't helping matters

Flippin eck 34 degrees! It's been hot here too but not sure of the temperature.

My first dose of 50mg Clomid gave me shocking blood test results. Maybe if you go up to 150mg it will work. Fingers crossed for you it's all so stressful isn't it x
