Post subject:  clomid?

Hi just wondering if any of you have had to take this or to hear your experience.
I've had no trouble getting pregnant before Jamie. Since then they've found I have low progesterone, I thought they'd give me progeaterone rather than clomiphene (clomid)
Since jamie and the progesterone issue I've had 4 chemical pregnancies.

hmm i dont know alot other than clomid helps you ovulate by increasing your progeserone levels. It is a very commonly used a first step to help with ovulation.
Hope that helps, Yvonne (Satori Star) took Clomid for the same reason and it worked ;) see thread TTC with a vengence

Hi Jamiesmum,

Sorry its taken so long to get onhere and reply.

I to had no problem concieving with my first two pregnancies - averaged about 3mths, however after losing Satori something happened with my progesterone levels, so my OB put me on Clomid to essentially kickstart ovulation. It seemed my progesterone levels were going down every month which was frustrating and even when I started on Clomid the went down further for the first two months :shock: On the third month however, it must have done its job, as we got a BFP, which was worth the wait. :) It took us about 10 mths all up.

Just keeep in mind that it may not happen in the first month, although it can, and you may have some side effects. I had some oochy ovulation pain that I had never had before, and you can experience a bit of nausea and sore B**Bs, which are also pregnancy signs, so that can do your head in a bit :wall: when it turns out that you are not pregnant. I took the clomid at night which can help with the nausea, and I think I took it days 3-6 for the first two months and then days 2-5 on the third month (I just wanted to try something different, in case O was slightly earlier) My OB was OK with me trying this - said it wouldn't hurt!

TTC was a long journey and the only advice I can offer is to try not to get too caught up and obsessed with it, as it can take over. In the end I decided to take on a job, because it wasn't happening, and wouldn't you know, I got pg within a week of starting :lol: They say a change is as good as a holiday :lol:

I also joined a couple of threads on EBB called TTC and Clomiphene Cows which helped because the ladies on there were going through some of the same issues with TTC, and there was some good sharing of information regarding there experiences on clomid.

Anyway sweet, good luck with it, and I am sending you loads of Baby Dust :)

thanks for your reply,

cd 3 today and I'm offically on clomid, yay for me!! I cant help it but after the struggles over the last 10 months I'm hanging out for a strong sticky bfp, a growing belly and a healthy baby at the end. I know I shouldnt pin so many hopes on it but its hard not to.
