Information neede on Fertomid (eg Clomid)!!!


Hi there ladies i have joined today, i need your advice. I had a stilborn baby boy on the 11 June 2007 he was 37 weeks and 2 days. I struggled with my period for about 5 months being on and off of progesterone meds. Doc eventualy put me on BC pills for 2 months just to regulate everything. I am suppose to start with my period this week and as soon as i start i am stopping the BC pills and as perscribed starting Fertomid 50mg from day 5-9.

Im so scared cause my partner and i want to conceive so badly and i think he will be more dissapointed than anything if we don't fall pregnant in 4 months..

Is there anyone that has used Fertomid 50mg and conceived within 4 months. Pls note i don't have a OV problem i am strictly using Fertomid 50mg so that i can acurately detirmine when i O. And i had all my bloods tested and everything is normal, my gyni said 3 months max and we will be pregnant.

Please advice is so needed

Thanks jacky

I'm so sorry for your loss

I hope the other gals can answer you with the Clomid, I've never tried it. Just wanted to give you some for the road!

I am sorry for your loss. I am sorry I don't have a personal success story to share with you, but I am on Clomid 100mg at the moment, and I am on my 4th round, but I do have fertility problems (PCOS) so that could be why it is taking me longer.

I have heard of quite a few people getting pregnant after 2 rounds... two of my friends did and both have healthy children to show for it, so Clomid does work for some poeple, I guess it depends on the individual.

One thing I have learnt whilst on Clomid, it is best to try to relax as much as possible, as it reduces the side effects, and if you stress it can also cause delays in your cycle. I know it is easier said than done.

Best of luck and lots of

Thank you so much, and even more scary, i was pregnant with twins lost the one on 3 months and CJ at 37 weeks 2 days, and doc said chances of twins on Fertomid(clomid) is about 80%.

What i wouldn't give to have both babies in the end!!!!!!

Hi Jacky24,

So sorry to hear of your loss. Life is so cruel sometimes.

I was prescribed Clomid last October for 6 months, 100mg on days 2 to 6, and I fell pregnant on the second cycle. My Gyni told me that if Clomid is going to work, it will happen within the first 3 cycles. Having said that it can still happen on the 5th or 6th cycle but usually it happens within the first 3 cycles. I was put on Clomid as my cycle wa quite irregular, varying from 32 to 45 days but once on Clomid my cycle was bang on 28 days. Unfortunately I suffered a miscarriage just over 2 weeks ago at 10 weeks.

I have great faith in Clomid as it worked so quickly for us but one thing that does concern me is I was told by my Gyni that there is a slight increase of miscarriage associated with Clomid.

By the way, I am a twin and was hoping to conceive twins on Clomid but it didn't happen. I don't think the odds are as high as 80% of conceiving twins on Clomid. It's more like a 10% increase.

I would also be slightly wary of taking Clomid if you are ovulating normally yourself. Clomid is usually prescribed to women who are not ovulating or who have PCOS.

Thanks, i am just at this stage trying everything and anything in my power to fall pregnant now, my period is from 28-45 days aswell that is why i went on to the BC pills, but i told my gyni i will take the BC pills but as soon as my 2 months are over i want to TTC, so that is the reason for the Fertomid(clomid).

I't has become a matter of me and my husband wanting a baby and we are willing to do anythingI am even willing to stand on my head if that is what it takes, and my son CJ would be 8 months now on the 11th so we want to TTC as soon as possible, cause what made it worse was that the doc told us 3 months and i have been on Premele cycle 5, postoval, and ovral in 5 months. It has been a nightmare.

So all we want is just a little BABA

Baby dust to you and all. My New Years Resolution was 2008 is me and my husbands year!!!!!!!

Thank you ANGEL, and i am having such an emotional day today, my SIL is also pregnant and made it very hard for me during my pregnancy and even after the loss of my baby, and we found out yesterday it is a boy, but she hurt my feelings when she said it's my inlaws first boy. It hurt cause my son was stilborn on 37 weeks and 2 days, he is also a grand child.

But may god bless her pregnancy and be with her baby

I am just so happy knowing that i actually have a chance on these pills, thank you for your story now i know that the priest trully blessed me last night cause i get to meet wonderful people like you.
