Liz- I will be taking 150mg on cd5-9 when af arrives. It's setting on my kitchen table waiting for me. I'm hoping and praying this dosage will make me ovulate. My doc started me at 50, then 100 but neither one has made me ovulate. I am nervous I'm not going to ovulate.

I am also nervous that I will not ovulate, but I know that there are other medications that can help if clomid doesn't work. Have you tried anything different like FSG shots or femara? I will also take 150 mg after af starts, but mine is prescribed on cd 3-7. Do you know why it is different?
Liz

Oh, and I have been tracking my cm...it's so weird because I have had major ewcm around the middle of my cycle yet I'm not ovulating! Weird...Im having the most cm I've ever had. I actually got excited b/c I thought I was for sure ovulating b/c of it. But nope...I had very low progesterone levels when they did my blooddraws.

I haven't been prescribed anything but the clomid and provera but I think injectibles will be in my future if this cycle doesn't produce ovulation.

I have read that cd3-7 you are more likely to produce more follicles and therefore more likely to get multiples. And cd5-9 you are more likely to get less follicles but they are better developed. This is another ??? I would love to ask my doctor.

That is interesting to know about the different days of clomid. I would love to have twins....we have been trying for so long, I'd love if I had two all at once, they I wouldn't have to worry about it again!

I have not noticed any EWCM since I started on clomid, but I also haven't been ovulating. I would like to try injectables after this cycle of clomid. I have new insurance starting July 1, and more fertility treatments are covered in that policy. Now I only can get certain ones.

TMI alert: I actually check my cervical position and that's how I check cm...Gross...I know.

Im not sure what my insurance covers. It has covered my clomid and provera though. My clomid is really cheap. When I took it several years back it was around $50 a cycle (which is cheap compared to what I have heard injectables cost). This time around I got 5 days worth of 150mg for $5!!!!!! Awesome!!

How long have you been ttc? Do you have any children?

I have been having dreams about twins and babies in general. I hope it's a sign. I love being a mommy and I have always dreamed of having 3 or 4 kids. I feel lucky to have one...but I still have a strong desire for more.

I cried while I got dressed, I cried while I drove to work!! I was so happy. I even put the cap on the test and stuck it in the box and put it in my purse. I would check it ever so often to make sure I hadn't been seeing things. One if the best days ever for me. I not feeling optimistic either at this point but I wanted to let you know little miracles do happen when we least expect them. I need to remind myself sometimes too.
well i did a couple of ovulation tests and they where all negative awww i think that will be my reaction x

I'm pretty similar. I have PCOS and insulin resistance. Metformin didn't bring a period. I'm on Provera to start a period. 50 of clomid did nothing, 100 has made me ovulate 1 egg twice, but still not pregnant, so we're thinking about upping the clomid or going to injectables since I'm fairly resistant to it. Ultrasounds will show follicle growth. Good luck..I know how much it sucks..just got my period today
