Those of you who were on Clomid & Conceived Multiples...


Hi there ladies,

My DH and I are having problems conceiving our first child and my RE has put me on Clomid next cycle, starting on the weekend when my dreaded AF is due.

I'm starting on 50mg and my doctor has directed me to take the dose from days 2-6. I've read online that taking Clomid early in the cycle can increase the chances of multiples and I was just interested to know if what I have read online regarding this is accurate from a point of view of your experiences.

Also, did you find the side effects all that bad? I've read taking it at night is helpful in relieving some of the known side effects.

We are hoping we conceive soon so that I don't have to take the drug for too long.

Congratulations on your pregnancy/families and hopefully I'll be joining you in motherhood very soon with either one or more babies. God willing.

Best wishes to you all and thanks so much for reading my post.

Jonesbaby

xx

The doctor gave me Letrozole and told me the chance for multiples was VERY small and not to worry about it. (I'm thinking mine may be identical though which would mean it didn't have anything to do with it.) I took it days 3-7. I didn't have an U/S until 8 weeks and at that point they only found one cyst they were pretty sure was a CL. I had a couple other cysts, but they didn't see the jagged edges they would expect from a CL. The first cycle I didn't get it until CD4 for took it days 4-8, but didn't conceive. I did get hot flashes from the Letrozole, but from what I'm told Letrozole is much more mild than Clomid and leaves your system quicker.

Thanks so much for replying amjon.

What does CL mean? I'm not totally up to speed on the lingo.

Thanks so much again!

I took clomid 100mg days 5-9 and it created 2 follicles which we triggered (pregnyl trigger) CD16 and both follicles took. I think I had fairly sensitive ovaries bc I had ovarian drilling just 2 months prior. good luck!

I took 50mg Clomid starting on day 4 (day 5 is the latest my RE would start it) and I ended up with twins. I don't think it ha much to do with what day you start but rather how many mature follicles you have. Maybe taking it earlier gives a chance for more follicles to grow? I'm not sure. As for side effects, I learned the hard way that it's best to take it at night. The first day I took it in the afternoon and had such bad hot flashes tht I literally stuck my head on the freezer as the a/c did nothing to help. After that, I still had the hot flashes but not nearly as bad because I slept through the worst of it. That is really the only side effect I remember. I know I had more but they weren't bad enough that I remember what they were.

Hopefully you get your BFP soon. Sending lots of

I took clomid CD 3-7 @ 50 mg. I had three ripe follicles. It was my first time on clomid. It made me depressed but it also could have been depression from ttc for so long. I can't remember if I took it at night.

Good luck and hope you get your bfp soon!

Awww....

Thanks so much ladies for responding. I know it's not a forgone conclusion that I'll conceive with Clomid alone but I'm keep the faith that it will hopefully bring us one step closer to being parents.

My doctor has suggested that we time intercourse this month with an Ovidrel trigger once we know how many follicles we have. I've read that some people get super intense cramping with it when ovulating - did anybody experience this? I'm a big chicken!

Thanks again xx

Everything felt fine and normal for me and when I got my bfp I was in disbelief. I felt no different!
