I completely understand. We spent over 8 years TTC our son. I think I tried nearly every natural remedy. But in the end our first round of clomid we conceived. To my knowledge it was the first time I had been pregnant. I'm pretty sure I didn't ovulate at all during those years. I also have pcos.
I'm on day 2 of Clomid and this is the first time I've taken anything. I also had a really heart wrenching cp after 7 months of trying naturally. It's been another 6 months since then and I finally went to a specialist. The NHS one said there is nothing wrong and we should be patient. Since I'm approaching 39 now, I decided to go private for a second opinion and the specialist has given me Clomid 50mg.
I've not had any symptoms yet (except my tongue feels odd) and really hopeful I won't get any. I'm already an emotional mess from so many unsuccessful cycles and I have slight hypothyroidism with low bbts so hot flushes would probably just make my temps normal!!!
Elliecain- so sorry to hear about your cp I'm also on 50mg Clomid and on day 2 as well. I don't know if it's all in my mind but I seem a little depressed it started yesterday about 4 hours after I took the Clomid. I will be taking the Clomid tonight before bed instead of during the day to try and rest through the emotional times I'm having right now! I just want to be done with the 5 days of this. I know that sounds horrible, I'm just nervous and excited, it's weird haha.
Krissie- I'm really sorry you were feeling really emotional! Glad you are feeling better today!
Oh, was also wondering... Are either of you ladies using a trigger shot or just Clomid? And was wondering your thoughts on both with and without. I have super long cycles anywhere from 38-55 days, yeah crazy, and I am worried about ovulating late! I hear of women who have mature follicles but they never mature to eggs and release on their own. So I'm worried! And the $ is pricy for the trigger shot. But I also don't want to have another cycle of disappointment. I don't know, I'm conflicted!
Hello Ellie & Jenn. I am just waiting for AF to start my clomid, I made up my mind to take it at night since hearing all the horror stories of symptoms. Jen I know what you mean about feeling nervous excited. I feel the same, like getting on a new rollercoaster ride when you know its a thrill but your kinda afraid of heights. Lol
Robinsmom- Hi there!! yes, exactly like that type of nervous excited!! Yeah, yesterday I took my Clomid at 3pm, today, no no no. I have decided to take it in the PM. Since yesterday was my first day in not to worried about waiting it out a few hours for today. I took it at 9pm, now 11pm. So getting ready for bed now, thank goodness. I know what you mean about the horror stories! I shouldn't have googled lol! Yesterday I was an emotional wreck, maybe just AF getting to me, but I'm usually not like that, so MAYBE Clomid? Not sure, either way, I think PM is a good choice for sure! I also had a headache ALL day, hopefully that stops because I know so many people have that as a side effect. But hey, if I get my sticky bean it is ALL worth it!! Are you using a trigger shot or just Clomid?
I'm just using Clomid as I already ovulate without it. This is more to get a really good egg/more than one to give the sperm the best possible chance. Neither of us have any issues, except I'm slightly hypothyroid and taking thyroxine.
I'm booked in for an us scan on cd12 to check on the eggs and lining. I'll do this for 3 cycles max then look at other options.
So far no symptoms. I take it at about 4 and I feel lucky that I've not have any symptoms. I've read that this may be because I have normal cycles so the hormones aren't actually being changed for me. I hope the rest of you get through it ok.
