Clomid/Tamoxifen/Metformin/Injectables- O inducing meds.. 7 BFP's 5 more to come


After 2 rounds of clomid 50mg and 100mg I am now on a break until my laparoscopy...
I'm looking for girls who are taking a break also so we can see how our natural cycles go... And see if any of us manage to get a bfp on a natural cycle as clomid didn't seem to be a miracle drug for me straight away!

So if it's natural for a month or from now on- however long then please join!
Xx

Thanks Alicia I'll still be over in my clomid thread too

Beanhunter good luck! Let's hope we can prove the doctors wrong and get our bfp's without clomid

YAY!!!!! I am in:-) Can't wait to see some natural BFPs on this thread!!
Today is cd11 for me also:-) and I am using cbfm and frdo. I used preseed last cycle because clomid dried me up. But this cycle I seem to be extra fine in that department lol! I will have an ultrasound next week to see if my cyst has shrunk any and hopefully will tell if I am going to ovulate naturally on my own. If I am, then I will definitely be put on progesterone in the 2ww. But other than that, all natural this cycle!

Scerena- I still can't believe we are on the same exact cycle again! We must be meant to be buddies:-)
Beanhunter- are you feeling better?? I hope so! When do u go for another ultrasound to see if the new cyst has gone away?

Yep we are definately meant to be buddies! It's so good! Have you been using opks...? I started 2 days a go lol! No positive just yet it's too early lol!

I also noticed I haven't dried up this month either but I mite use conceive plus when ovulation happens (if it happens) as it's meant to help the sperm get where it needs to be...
Goodluck to us Girlies!

I haven't been using the IC opks (I do have a bunch of them) but I have been using the cbfm and the new first response digital ovulation tests (FRDO).. I just started yesterday. I have a picture, I will post it.
The FRDO are newer and they don't have a control line! Only the LH line, so I am not sure how I will be able to read them exactly yet... You are suppose to put them in the digital reader, and then it will give you a +yes or -no for your surge. But once you get a +yes, the reader shuts off and you can't use it anymore! Stupid if you ask me! So I am trying to just see if I can read the lines for now Even though your not suppose too
I will probably use preseed around ovulation (if I get there) just for extra help too! But it is nice not to have to need it

ok... So if I remember correctly you are not familiar with these brands, correct??
The blue dye one is cbfm and it measures estrogen and LH.. the darker line is the estrogen and the lighter line is the LH.. So when you get close to ovulation the estrogen line will go lighter and the LH line darker. I think you would like these. You put them in a monitor that that gives you a low, high and peak reading. High readings your suppose to bd every other day and peak (LH surge) you are suppose to bd 3 days in a row.
The pink one is the FRDO and it only has an LH line, so I am not sure what to compare it to yet.. I am just going to experiment with them this cycle

Yea that is true.. If you are getting scans then they are just a waste of money.. I used it the first 4 months of TTC while I was not on clomid.. I never ovulated the first 3 months so it didn't work and was a waste LOL But the 4th month it worked (I was taking soy) and that was when I had my 1st chemical. When I was taking clomid last cycle, it didn't work again.. I guess it messes it up because clomid decreases your estrogen..
Where do you by your ICs from? What brand are they?
