clomid buddy needed :)


Started my first month of clomid on cd19 now..... going to start testing at cd 30 since my cycles are between 30 and 40 days..... having some hefty side effects ( will be totally worth it if it works ) nothing unbearable but not enjoyable for sure. Anyone going through anything similar?

Ive been trying to conceive for 18 months now and its really getting discouraging. I swear some women can look at a man and get pregnant and Im getting so impatient!!!!! Sorry for the rant.

Finally a Clomid buddy of my own! Every time I make a clomid buddy they eventually drop off! Last night I took my third pill. I am on my second round of Clomid CD 5-9. I luckily ovulated on 50mg at CD 19. After CD 14 rolled around I was so nervous that I would not ovulate! We have been ttc for 14 months. I have PCOS and don't ovulate on my own. I take my clomid at bedtime with two Tylenol PM, I sleep like a rock and don't notice any side effects. Are you doing any monitoring, temping, looking for fertility signs or are you just winging it?

YAY finally someone replied lol Im guessing there aren't a lot of clomid buddies on here and the ones that are are already in groups.....

I took an IB 800 this weekend bc I was finally to the point I could not tolerate the pain anymore and It was a miracle worker, I feel dumb for waiting so long now wont make that mistake next month for sure assuming I don't get my bfp..... Im like in my tww and It feels like its never going to end lol.....

Oh yeah and I actually ovulated for the first time in 18 months (drs do not know why Im not ovulating bc im healthy as a horse) on CD19 how long do your cycles normally go?

also I haven't been temping I have been doing opk tests though. I was going to temp this month but I couldn't find my thermometer.....

I have feel slightly nauseated today although it could be from the clomid, this medicine has made my body go haywire.

My 5 days of Clomid went by with no side effects. I took my last pill 2 nights ago. Last night however I had some CRAZY hot flashes. I am now in full on waiting to ovulate mode. Using OPKs and I also have a saliva microscope.

I was not having any natural ovulation or periods without taking birth control or progesterone. It was really cool to finally have a chart that was complete. I also O'd on CD 19 last cycle. I am concerned that my LP was short, only 9 days. I am going to acupuncture and hopefully that will help. Also, my period was very short and very light. I normally have light cycles, but this was a little abnormal. Some light bleeding one day. Some medium flow for a couple hours then light for one more day. Only three days total. my worry is that this means I have a thin uterine lining which is a side effect from Clomid. My acupuncturist gave me some herbs to help with promoting blood building. I wasn't too disappointed that I had a BFN because I was so thrilled that the Clomid actually worked. Hopefully this cycle will do it for me. When are you going to start testing?

Yeah my side effects didn't happen til I O'ed. Im not sure if this was a side effect or not but I had to go home from work yesterday. I felt really dizzy and weak and my whole body was aching like I had the flu. It was absolutely terrible. I went home and slept from 330 yesterday til like 740 this am. I feel a lot better today but my back and my side is still hurting pretty bad but I don't feel like I have the flu anymore. The only thing that helped was Tylenol.

I think Im going to start testing like the 13th.... My LP is normally pretty long as my cycles normally last anywhere from 30 to 40 days.... That is if this clomid doesn't change my cycles
