I decided to give this a try as well. What do I have to loose. Worst case senario I get some extra vitamin C. I went and got a bottle of Grapefruit juice and I drinking about 8 oz every night before bed. and Taking a Mucinex (I had those on hand and figure I would use that up since I have it) when I do the grapefruit juice. I will prob add some more juice in the morning. But I am not usually too swift in the morning and often forget.

I've been drinking the grapefruit juice with my breakfast in the morning and then again another glass with dinner. I also take 2tsp of the Robitussin once a day (sometimes 2x if we are BD'ing).

just about to start my clomid cycle tomorrow =)
read to take grapefruit juice and robitussin as well...but if you are on clomid they say you should take it (robitussin) 2 days after your last pill, so that's when i'm gonna start with that, but i'm gonna drink grapefruit juice morning and night through my whole cycle.
good luck on getting your BFP's ladies!!!

Good luck girl! I think I'm gonna be getting on clomid...it seems I'm not ovulating and plus I was diagnosed with PCOS so hopefully my doctor will put me on clomid when I go next week! I'm still taking the robitussim and grapefruit juice... I've seen a HUGE difference in my fluid!

Good luck on clomid!!

i have PCOS too. I'm also taking Soy Isoflavones (days before starting clomid) and Maca (everyday)

gonna start my grapefruit juice tonight and then use the robitussin after i finish my clomid as it was recommended. Good luck with getting on the clomid. If you have PCOS and don't seem to be ovulating, the doctors are usually really helpful and understanding of your situation...although it took me 3 months to get the prescription cuz i had to have bloodwork and the dh had to have a sperm count....just to rule out other problems.

best of luck and i'm always here to chat =)

btw if the doctor won't get you on clomid right away, go get yourself some soy isoflavones and you can use them like clomid...

Thanks!!! I guess we do have alot in common! Been looking for someone that has the same issues! Yeah the clomid helped me ovulate whenever I was one it 2 years ago. So hopefully when he prescribes me it, I won't be far from the ! LOL! The grapefruit juice and robitussin works for me now so once I start ovulating on clomid that won't be far! ! Did the doctor tell you that you wasn't ovulating either?

yeah i was off my BCP (which i was taking to get a period since i was 17 when i was diagnosed with PCOS) and i hadn't been getting a period....hence...no ovulation. but by taking the Maca (for only a month at the time) I had started to get a reddish brown discharge every month (sorry tmi) but the doc wanted to get me on clomid so that i could ovulate and have a better chance at conception....he is confident, as am i, that it will work well for me....so i start taking it tomorrow night for 5 days and i'm so excited to be getting ever closer to the day where i can get that BFP...i feel it...like God has really helped me to be so calm and relaxed and at peace with it all, cuz I used to be so frustrated and down on myself like i'd never have a baby....God has really helped me this year...it's been life-changing...and i feel like something really good is coming my way....and i think it's a BFP =)
hopefully! hope the doctor gives you that prescription....otherwise like i said, start the soy isoflavones, i've seen tonnez of ladies say they have done the trick "natures clomid"...but best of luck! we do have a lot in commone. hopefully we can be Bump Buddies! lol

Aww! I know what you mean!!! I can feel it too! Getting professional help has made me realize I can get that now! I've had PCOS so that's the reason I NEVER could get pregnant and I didn't even know I had it until I got a new doctor! So now I'm hoping this doctor will try everything possible to help us have a child! We've been together for 4 years but been married for 2 years... so we're sooooooo ready for child! Everybody in our families has kids except for us! Yeah, I added you so we can become buddies! Talking about clomid.. grapefruit juice! Heck we have so much in common we maybe on the same cycle day! Hahaha!
