Clomid is not working for me


Hi ladies,

I am on my 3rd cycle of clomid of 150mg. The first 2 cycles I didn't ovulate. The doctor has given me two options if again i don't ovulate this cycle. Continue on clomid on a stronger dose. To be referred to a fertily specialist to maybe start injectables. I am wondering if there are any ladies here who experienced clomid starting help with ovulation after a couple cycles. I used to ovulate by myself although not every month. I would have longer cycles (40-60 days). Now when I take clomid nothing for 2 cycles.

I am on my first cycle of Clomid now but I do know that my doctor says that after a few months and especially after 6 months, Clomid starts to lose its effect so I am not sure!

Good luck though! I really hope this is your month!

A friend of mine did 3 cycles of Clomid and the last cycle was 150mg. Didn't work for her at all and she's just done her first round of injections and had a scan yesterday that is showing one follicle. She's thrilled! So don't worry of you have to do the injections, they do work and apparently not difficult to do at all.

Thank you for the support. I took my last pill for the cycle and I have my fingers crossed.

Well I conceived on my 3rd round of Clomid and Ihad irregular cycles before. Like you hun I did ovulate but not every cycle so I had some cycles were 30-70 days. I knew the first 2 months of Clomid didnt work coz my cycles were really long. The maximum recommended safe dose is 250mg a day so there is a way for you to go and they won't go past 6 months coz like some else said it does lose it's effectiveness.

Good luck to you hun xxx

I just wanted to stop in and say good luck to you! I took 100 then 150 of Clomid, and it did not work for me, but I have never ovulated on my own, so my situation is a little different than yours. My Dr. just recently started me on injections.

i'd like to say good luck to you all, i got preg on my 4th month on clomid after not ovulating and my cycle being 100 days sometimes, but there is light at th end of the tunnel and i am proof it can work as i went for my early scan today to check for multiples and i am 7 weeks approx they saw one little heartbeat fluttering away. so i'm chuffed, it makes the road long never ending and windy when taking fertility drugs.
i just wanted to share a bit of luck with everyone trying as it is possible.
xxx baby dust to all xxx
