    I just joined the Clomid Club.

    Thusfar, I have had the most severe, lingering headache ever since I took the second tablet on CD3. Its been gradually getting worse as well.

    Not sure about ovulation yet. Am on CD12 now and I have been getting positive OPKs forever.

    I'm starting clomid when AF comes. IF AF comes :happydance: I'm taking it on days 2-6. I've got stupidly long cycles sometimes... best I've had is 5-6 weeks.

    Good luck everyone!

    What is clomid? Would it help me? I have hydrosalpinx. Swollen fallopian tubes so hard for the egg and sperm to travel through. Think clomid may help as I'm sure it makes you ovulate more, is that right?

    donna,

    Clomid is a drug used to stimulate ovulation (taken on specific days of your cycle). If you are already ovulating and have regular cycles, with swollen tubes it may not be that helpful. I would have thought that IVF treatment would be of more benefit to you? What has your gyno suggested? (will go and read your other thread in a mo) ;)

    I am awaiting clomid on my next gyno appointment in October.

    Hi girls,
    Can i join the Clomid club?! I'm on my first cycle of 50. Took it from CD2-6 and am now on CD8. Had the worse hot flushes and head aches.
    I've not been asked to have scans or injections is this right?

    We are having HCG injections to make sure we definatly ovulate. It also gives a certain window of opportunity. I asked about this as I hadn't come across people having clomid and the jab and the fertility nurses told me that I would probably ovulate myself with just the clomid but there would be no guarantees when so they give the injection which is meant to guarantee ovulation within 12-36 hours or something like that!

    Folliclies should be above 18mm to have a mature egg I think

    when my GP prescribed it she presecribed 50mg days 2-6 for the first cycle and then 100mg day 2-6 for the second if i got there.
    but then my gynea decided that he didn't want my gp to do it after all and just prescribed me with 50mg day 2-6 for 3 cycles. i'm a little confused as to why the different doseages

    Honey, I'm in Stockton - a few miles from Middlesbrough :)

    With me, and with alot of people I've spoken to, they give you 50mg a day for the first cycle, see if you ovulate, and if not they the dose to 100mg. If you still don't ovulate, they put it up to 150mg. They don't give you a high dose to start with because of the risk of over stimulation.
