    So after a year of NTNP, followed by 7 cycles active TTC naturally, followed by 4 more months of TTC with all the poking and prodding that comes along just to get some freakin' clomid, I Finally get the "infertility" diagnosis checked off in my chart and the green light to start treatment. I started my first cycle in April. Cycle 1 (50mg) it was "borderline" whether I ovulated. So in May Cycle 2 I went up to 100 mg & I had confirmed ovulation with the blood work on CD23, and there were 2 follies present on CD 12 when I went for that sonogram. Unfortunately we didn't catch the egg(s). I've been spotting since Sunday, but the witch is officially here today... I call the doctor to get an appointment for my sonogram to start of the new clomid cycle and they are "booked solid", can't even squeeze me in if I sit there and wait all day, and thus they told me to SKIP THIS CYCLE. ummmm... WHAT? I called, begged, pleaded, etc. There is no way to fit me in, I asked and my doctor won't just write me another prescription without doing a sonogram, and basically there is nothing I can do but wait until next month.

    BUT! When I started Clomid back in April, I got 3 refills for 50mg. I refilled it in May before we started that cycle, but then they upped me to 100mg so I had to get a whole new prescription filled. That 50mg is sitting in my medicine cabinet at home. I know I have another 50mg at the pharmacy waiting to be refilled, and because my insurance doesn't cover it, I'm pretty sure I can just ask for the refill and walk out with the clomid no problem without doctor verification or anything like that. That would give me 100mg. Should I go through this cycle by myself? What would you do?

    sorry this is soooooo long. I know to some this might sound :wacko:, but I really just want to start our family.

    Like you I have clomid sitting at the pharmacy waiting to be picked up if I want it but for 5 months I only got one follicle so I'm not filling it and I am waiting for injectables in August after my laproscopy.

    I would too. Plenty of ppl take clomid without monitoring and get sent away with a 6m prescription. you dont know if theyll be able to get you in next cycle so they rly are being complete twats. fingers crossed for this cycle. next cycle maybe book a preemptive scan in, and if its the wrong day/af never arrives then you can move it or cancel.

    GL :)

    Good Luck...just wondering if you are going to a specialist or OBGYN? I live in NJ and go to a wonderful specialist. I can't believe they would turn you away!! I may look into another office. I love my DR and his staff. They have great walk in monitoring hours daily and really early. And people are really sensitive to the fact that this is an emotional experience.
