Starting clomid for baby #2... buddies?


Hi! I am starting clomid tomorrow for baby #2. Baby #1 was also a clomid baby. We were hoping after the first, we would be able to conceive naturally but PCOS has reared its ugly head and we have had no success. Was hoping others taking clomid would join me on this journey! I will be taking 50mg days 5-9 to start. baby dust to all!

Hi Clapper, welcome back to the world of TTC!

I'm currently TTC #1, and just reached the one year mark. In January I was diagnosed with PCOS and in April we started our first Clomid cycle 50mg CD2-6. Didn't ovulate so in May we did 100mg CD2-6. My body still didn't respond at all (although I had enough bloomin' side effects!). Currently waiting until July 3rd when we go back to the fertility doctor to see what he wants me to do now. I also don't get AF without Norethisterone, so have to take that every time too.

How long did it take you to conceive #1?

Hi mind if I join in? I have a 4 year old son conceived naturally but took 11 months with 2 mcs along the way. Been TTC #2 since January 2016. Currently on my 3rd round of Clomid

Good luck to you both

Hi! I'm sorry you too have been diagnosed with PCOS, its no fun! I hope the fertility specialist can get you to ovulate with either a higher dose or another drug!

It took us about a year to conceive #1 once we started getting help from a fertility specialist. I started with metformin to balance my hormones and then added in clomid about 6 months later. I luckily ovulated on the lowest dose and the third month I conceived. Don't give up, its such a frustrating journey lots of baby dust!

Hi I'm on 100mg. I didn't ovulate the first month but was only on 50mg. Last month I ovulated and this month I've been told il ovulate. I've been for my 2nd tracker scan today and got 3 follicles. One at 17mm and two at 13mm and I'm predicted to ovulate at the weekend some time. All this TTC lark is so stressful!

I'm only on CD12 today so it's a while before I can poas. What CD are you both on?

glad the 100mg has worked to get you to ovulate! I did the tracker scans last time and ended up finding out I was actually ovulating a couple days later than they were predicting. guess my eggs were comfy! haha

I am on CD 5 and starting 50mg tonight CD5-9. Excited and nervous!

Sorry Clapper, I completely didn't see your post when I replied to Bella!

Thanks for your positivity, I'm finding the whole thing extremely frustrating and I kind of dread knowing that I still might have months more of this.

Good luck with the Clomid tonight, fingers crossed for no side effects!

I don't have a clue what day I ovulated last month. I have decided to do ovulation tests this month but I've never done them before. The nurse today told me to throw them away because they aren't worth doing and to just dtd every other day for the next week.

Aww fingers crossed the Clomid works for you! Has your consultant said how long you can take it for? I've been told I can only have 6 months on it so if this cycle fails I'll have 3 more
