i got married on 4th December 2015, well my OB prescribed it for and am not being monitored for the first cycle am just using opk. if this cycle does not work then i will be monitored in the next cycle. what they will do (as per my OB) is after 10 days they will check my ovaries if they have eggs that are ready to be released.
about side effect...i haven't noticed any since am taking them when i sleep so i will sleep through them but one thing that i noticed when i was using them was few pimples in one area and they dried up after finishing five days

I don't know a lot about Clomid, most of what I have learned is from reading posts on this board. How are you being monitored while you are on it? Is your OB prescribing it or are you going to an RE? Do you have any noticeable side effects? I am curious because I am not ovulating and I wonder if that will be a step I have to take eventually...

MrsRose- you said your labs were below 5, what does that mean exactly????
HCG below 5 means that you've completed the MC and you're back to normal essentially. Basically, your cycle should start up again. I think I should O in the next 7-10 days if my cycle is anything like it was last month.

I was just curious because you had said you started right when you got married and most women on this board report not being prescribed clomid until after trying a year. Did your doctor do this because you have PCOS? I am just curious what their rational is. I have an OBGYN apt in a week and a half and I want to go prepared with questions. Please keep us updated on this process, I am very interested to read how it goes.

I made a mistake and my OBGYN apt is actually in 8 days! I have never been so excited for someone to potentially look up my crotch with a speculum!

How are you gals doing? Any news?

Yay! Even I'm anxious for you to have your doctor appointment! Feels like you've been waiting forever.

I actually have a followup with my OBGYN tomorrow morning to discuss next steps, what testing we should have done, etc. I'm curious her thoughts on the causes of my CPs...though I doubt she'll have much insight since we didn't get any tissue tested.

I'm pretty excited because EWCM started yesterday and I got a flashing smiley on my Advanced Digital. We BD'd this morning and will hopefully do it again tomorrow AM before DH goes out of town. Unfortunately he'll be gone until Wednesday, so I'm hoping my solid smiley holds off until he gets back.

sorry for late reply this weekend we had our dad's memorial so i was somehow occupied......
yes my doctor prescribed that due to my history i had ovarian cyst which was not so big to cause damage so i went into meds and it just disappeared and now with pcos he thought i should take 50mg clomid for two cycle only and see if it can boost my chances. been married in december but have been trying for four month. that doesn't sound like a long time but can really mess you up especially with that kinda of history.

MrsRose, how did your appointment go? Hopefully your timing will be right this month!

Miracleworker- good luck with the clomid, keep us posted on how it works for you.

As for me....my OBGYN appointment got moved up to this Wednesday! I am very excited, any ideas on questions I should ask or tests I should ask to have performed?

Hi there! Here's a recap of my dr appoinment. Maybe some of it will be helpful for your appt tomorrow.

-She doesn't think low progesterone is what caused the MCs because they happened so early. She thinks they were more likely due to a chromosomal abnormality or clotting issue. Another possibility is a polyp or some type of obstruction preventing implantation.

-She thinks the issue is most likely with me, not DH, since I've been able to conceive. She said we can have another sperm analysis done if we want but doesn't think it's necessary at this point.

-My cycles have ranged from 25-39 days so she may have me try Clomid at some point to help regulate cycles, have stronger ovulation, etc. Iím not so sure I want to do that since Iím ovulating on my own. Iíve read some horror stories about how it messes up some peopleís cycles and does other kinds of damage. I plan to research it more.

-I told her Iíd had some mild cramp-like pains in my pelvic area since the latest MC and asked if it could be retained tissue. She said there shouldnít be any tissue to retain since I MCíd so early. But that seemed a bit contradictory for her reasoning on why I should wait a cycle before TTC. She said my body needs to rebuild the uterine lining and regulate itself. However if there wasnít much tissue in the first place, then I would think that I would shed about the same amount of lining as with AF. Plus, many people donít even know they had a CP and continue with their TTC journey. Obviously Iím not a doctor, but I just found that a bit odd.

-Must wait 6 weeks after MC to have genetic testing and blood clotting testing done. DH will also have the genetic testing done.

-Between Cycle Days 4-6, I should have ultrasound done to check for polyps or anything unusual.

Now I'm back to worrying that this isn't a progesterone issue after all. We've already started trying again this month so if I get pregnant, I guess we'll just have to wait and see if the progesterone and baby aspirin help. If I MC again, we'll have to wait another 6 weeks to have all the bloodwork done. I guess it wouldn't be so bad if I didn't get a BFP this month so we could have the testing done.

I'm now debating whether or not to BD when DH gets home tomorrow, as FF thinks I'll O then. So far we just BD'd once on Sun during my "high" fertility window and my peak will probably be tomorrow. Any thoughts or advice?

Heey Mrs Rose...i really am glad you made it with your doctor because it somehow oens you up to new possibilities. I have seen people getting kids with clomid so you never know it could be helpful..but hey no pressure am sure you know what is best for you...
I have been meaning to ask you,do you take folic acid? They say when you are ttc you should take folic acid atleast three months before to strengthen your womb.

Yes, I take folic acid, a prenatal, maca and bee pollen. I should be around the 3 month mark for folic acid now, so hopefully that will help!

I guess I'm concerned about Clomid since I ovulate on my own already. I've heard that it has stopped ovulation in some people and that is obviously the LAST thing I want! I ordered a natural fertility supplement last night that I'll start taking if I get a BFN this cycle. It's supposed to help do some of the things that Clomid does without the negative side effects.
