Clomid Round 1- buddies...anyone??


After 12 months, 14 cycles of ttc with no luck... I had an appointment with my OB today, and he prescribed Clomid. Since I am cd5 today I will start taking it this evening. I'm nervous and excited. I have been charting most of the last 14 cycles and I have always ovulated, but still no BFP... hoping for the best on this new chapter of our journey.

Anyone else in the same boat, with just starting Clomid?

Im on my second round of clomid trying for baby #2 but its been about three months since my last lot of clomid. You take clomid at night? My doctor said to take it in the morning as it works better. But I have PCOS so I need it to work the best that it can. Best of luck for your first round of clomid. How much are you on?

Clomid round 1 for me as well, im taking my last pill tonight.

I took 50mg CD4-8 because when doc gave me the pills i was already CD4. Next cycle he would like me to take CD2-6 tho. Lets hope there will be no next cycle

So far, i got achy boobs, acne and ewcm. Im bit confused about ewcm since i always hear how clomid dry cm up.

Doctors normally only say to take it at night if you get side effects, so you sleep through them. I get hot flushes and become moody on clomid.

I am also on 50 mg, I started on cd5 and taking until cd9.

I was told to take the pills at the same time everyday and that time of day didn't really matter, so the evening works best for me.

I haven't had any symptoms as of yet, and I started opk'ing today. Faint line as it should be for day 8... I usually O around cd12... so we will see what happens. I am so excited.

I got pretty noticeable faint line on my opks too but I read that we shouldn't start opks until 48 hrs after the last pill.

You didn't get any cramps? My cramps started after 4 tablets of clomid. Who is ur cm?

I got cramps pretty much straight after the last pill. I'm taking my clomid CD 2 to CD 7 so I should ovulate fairly early.

I just noticed I typed "who is ur cm" instead of how is ur cm lol

so cramps are normal, I'm thinking that I will ovulate cd14 but in getting pretty noticeable faint line on my opks so far
