Anyone using Clomid??

Postby vicky77 » Tue Aug 14, 2007 3:56 pm

Hi, I have done 3 IVF's, the first one was BFP but m/c, the other 2 were negative. I am now on an "IVF Break" and my RE is giving me Clomid to help boost my "natural chances" of getting pg.
Is anyone using it, or have used it and can share your experiences??

Thank you!!
Vicky

hi vicky
I'm taking clomid and having iui.
I have very irregular cycles and only ovulate some months so it was supposed to shorten my cycle and help the follies mature.
Ist cycle I took 50mg on days 2 to 9 but had a 9 week cycle!!!!
Increased to 100mg next time and this worked like a dream for 2 cycles with 2 matures follies each time at around day 14.
This cycle I took 100mg and it didn't work so well - I finally had 1 mature follie at day 25, had iui day 26 and am due to test next wed.

I was quite scared about taking clomid after reading the info (I'm a pharmacy technician so have access to all the technical info too) but I didn't find the side-effects a problem. Just get hot flushes from after the third dose until after I ovulate

Let me know if you've any other questions - happy to help
Hope you get on ok with it
38,single.ttc with iuid
3 cycles 100mg clomid-BFN
2 cycles menopur-BFN
Nov 07 menopur-BFP!!

Hi Squeezan!, thank you for answering!!. I haven't had any side effects either fortunately!!.
I was on 100mg from day 3-7, now I am waiting to ovulate.
Good luck with your test!!!!!!!!!!
