Clomid buddy needed or just advice?

Jan 25th, 2018, 00:30 AM   #1
 
Hi ladies!

So, I’ve just taken a long year out of TTC after 10 years ttc and no luck ��

My doctor has offered my IVF which I put off by requesting to try 3 rounds of Clomid first. So this cycle I start.

5 years ago I tried 50mg Clomid cd 3-7 I ovulated but no bfp

This time round I’m on 100mg cd 2-6 and with metformin 1000mg for past 6 weeks already

So today is CD 7. I felt nothing.... (is this normal?) whilst taking the pills I feel horrible I felt sick and constantly hungry and thirsty.. Now the only problem I have is gas and lots of it!! Lol sorry tmi!

Anyway I guess I’m expecting to feel O cramps or something even tho it maybe slightly early... I have a 26 day cycle usually so will O this weekend usually.... which is very lucky since hubby is working away for a week from Monday evening till Friday!!!

Is anyone else around the same cd as me and on Clomid?? �� I really need someone to keep me Sain!

I have a scan on CD12 and possibly the trigger shot? Which will be pointless with no hubby next week.... ��


Any happy endings with Clomid to keep me going will be much appreciated xxx

Hi Kay, I have replied to your other message as well but I'm pretty much on the same cycle day as you on my first round of clomid taken days 2-6. Apart from being boiling day and night for the past two days I've had no side effects either! Its almost as if I've taken nothing! Later on in the months if I get o pains or a cyst, I'll probably be wondering why I was worried about not having side effects! Good luck x

It’s worrying isn’t it!
I’ve heard you ovulate 5-9 days after taking the last pill. I’m hoping for earlier rather than later. Fingers crossed this is our lucky month!!! Keep me updated xx

I took clomid days 2-6 for 4 cycles and 3-7 for 3 cycles (depending on how late in the day af arrived), I didn't ovulate on any until cd18-24 so don't panic if it happens later than you expect.

Thanks snowbee, everything seems very quiet so far so I'm wondering if O will be quite late - hopefully it will happen! X

I’m now cd 12 with a stitch feeling on left side... (started a few days ago)

Hubby is working away this week so all weekend we dtd. Hopefully I o today or I don’t think it will work this month for me, as no hubby = no baby ��

I don’t use o tests as I become very obsessed in the past, and ended up more stressed. Fingers crossed!!!

Is it your scan today Kay? I haven't got any scans, so hoping temps and opk are going to show something. Nothing so far although I have had a bit of what I think is ewcm yesterday and today. I've never had o pains so I don't know what to expect there or if I might get them with clomid. Good luck, hope you o today!

My scan was supposed to be today! But the machines were broken??? They said they can rebook for tomorrow, but I am working so can not attend! Which is a bit rubbish and means this cycle I will be unmonitored.

I have no ewcm but heard that’s common with clomid. I have had stitch like feeling all day today, but on Saturday i slipped into the lagoon and hurt my lower back quite badly so I’m not sure if the 2 are related lol don’t ask lol

My nipples are also very tender since yesterday, which NEVER happens so something is happening but not too sure what...

Have you had any signs of o at all? What is happening with the opk?

The next 2 weeks for both of us isn’t going to be the longest 2 weeks of our lives!

Good luck hun!!!

That's not good re the scans! Bit hopeless of the clinic!

Maybe you have o'd already if your nipples are sore?

I've had a some funny cramps today, not sure what's causing that. Have never had o pain before so not sure what to expect. My opk was much darker this morning but still not as dark as the control line - maybe I missed the surge yesterday as I did another one just now and it was lighter again. Its my first time properly using opks so struggling to interpret them at the moment!

Yes the next two weeks are going to be very long...

Keep me posted and good luck! Xx

Cramps is a good sign! But I read that the cramps can happen before during and after o... I had severe cramps which made dtd an experience for sure!

I couldn’t figure out the opk’s either! My test line was NEVER as dark as the control line! I think that’s why I gave up on them!

As long as you’ve been dtd it don’t matter if you missed it on the OPK. If you haven’t then get started girl lol

I think I’m officially 1dpo today!
I got a call from the clinic again today and have an appointment on 16th February to be referred over to IVF clinic. I’ve only done 1 month of clomid and have 2 more month supply! Depending on how long the appointment takes I’m hoping I don’t have to do another round! The bloating has been horrific and so uncomfortable!!

Good luck hun!!!!! Xx

Jumping in here. Desperately looking for others in the same boat. I’m on my last cycle of Clomid 150mg. Day 11 today. I’m not OPKing but I will have day 21 bloods done. I don’t get scan monitoring unfortunately. I suffer horribly with side effects, especially on such a high dose. Lots of pregnancy-like symptoms too, which is very annoying. I’m trying to stay relaxed because it’s the last shot but I’m a mess! X

Welcome aboard mrsablett!
How many rounds have you done previously? 150mg is very high! I can’t imagine the symptoms, they must be awful! Is the clomid working for O previous months?

I’m cd 14 today and roughly 2dpo today. The side effects haven’t been as bad as I thought they would be! Most of my side effects happened during the 5 days taking the tablets, apart from sore nipples and feeling bloated (which is the worst I’ve EVER had) that’s all I have, although the bloated feeling is making me feel absolutely awful! Oh and bding was painful!

When is AF due??

Fingers crossed this is your month! What happens after this cycle if unsuccessful? Do you move on to IVF like I do?

Good luck!!!

Hi Kay and mrsablett, I am now on day two of cramps and a very strange feeling abdomen. It now feels very bloated and I am so windy! I'm pretty sure I'm 1dpo so very similar to you Kay. AF expected on the 12th, my luteal phase is normally 12 days but I've heard clomid can make it longer. Its great that they've got you in for the ivf referral appointment already, one thing I'm not sure of is once Imit has been agreed that ivf is the next step, how long does it then take before you can start? Ive got 4 months of clomid supply from the clinic and then we are looking at ivf at that point, my consultant said. Good luck both, here's to a speedy two week wait! (Hopefully with no AF at the end of it) xx

What pregnancy symptoms do you tend to get in your 2 week wait mrsablett? I feel like I'm a mess as well!

The wind is ridiculous isn’t it! Lol I had that since stopping the pills and it’s still going! It’s very uncomfortable! You have the exact same cycle as me 12 day literal phase and AF due 12th. What mg of clomid are you on?

I was due to start IVF anyway but requested a 3 month try at clomid, to which I’ve done 1 so far whilst I wait for the appointment at the IVF clinic.

I’m already getting very impatient about this 2ww and trying to find symptoms which don’t exist yet!

Are you waiting for AF before testing sarahlou or are you hanging on ?
