hey nightnurse,,i'm a night shift nurse as well..i have unexplained infertility..with first dd..and took 7 years before i got pregnant again with second dd..got pregnant again with twins in 2010 had a mmc, and another mc in oct of 2010..and nada since then except the loss of my left ovary and tube due to large dermoid cyst
i have been on and off clomid for the last year..took a break over summer...but mostly i get forced breaks because they find follicular cysts..
i finally got the go ahead this month to resume clomid..100 mg ( my progesterone levels were too low on the 50mg) and i do a trigger shot and do timed intercourse..
i will take the last dose today..cd 4-8...i go for an u/s on the 29th to check maturity of eggs..if they are a certain size then i take my trigger shot..my lp is short so i only have to wait about 10-11 days before i find out if i'm pregnat after i ovulate..
the side effects i suffer from the most is hot flashes, moody, acne, bloating and headaches..but i'll live with it if it helps us with conceivin numb 3, which we have been ttc now for 4 years..since 09..
good luck to you hope this helps
Days 4-8 (instead of 3-7, I got my prescription late!)
50mg...I actually ovulate on my own so the clomid is to hopefully make my ovulation stronger and produce more eggs. I've been trying for 9 years now...secondary unexplained infertility.
