    Default Clomid Babies - how many Clomid cycles before pg?

    Hi All

    I am interested in finding out how many of you have/are having a Clomid baby or babies (any with twins?), and after how many cycles of Clomid it happened & how long you had been off the pill before starting Clomid?

    Have heard of a few that fell after only 2 cycles. I've been off the pill for 17mths now, this is my 13mth TTC (had to wait 4 mths due to low B6 levels & Rubella live vaccine) & 2nd cycle of Clomid, fingers crossed.

    Hey Shell,

    I'm currently pg with a Clomid baby. I went off the pill in Jan 03, had 2 m/c, and started Clomid in Sep 04 (I think). Got pg on that very first cycle!

    Good luck! I hope this is the cycle that it happens for you!

    Hi Shell

    I was on the pill for 13 years and then went off it in Jan 04. I didn't get a period until April (first cycle of clomid) and then I did another one and then decided not to continue with the clomid as I had to take provera as well.....I had 1 period on my own and then we feel pregnant in Sept 04 (around the same time as Angel!)

    I really didn't like taking provera and clomid - but would do it again in a heart beat as I think that it really helped our chances of getting pregnant. What I found really distressing (and I hope that this hasn't happened to you) was that I wasn't getting a period at all so we didn't even have a chance I had given up by October - and by the time I found out I was already 5 weeks pregnant and had no idea!

    All the very best with TTC!

    Hey Shell

    I fell pregnant on my second cycle of clomid 50mg.I can't remember how long I was off the pill for before I went on clomid though, if I had to guess I'd say it was about 2 years.My sister fell pregnant on clomid 50mg also and fell pregnant on her first cycle!My sister is 23 and I'm 27, but I also was diagnosed with PCOS meaning I don't ovulate at all so it was quite a surprise that I fell pregnant second time round!

    Goodluck.....I am [-o< for you............

    Does anyone mind me asking how much clomid costs? and what is it used for?

    I fell pg on my second cycle of clomid (first cycle was 50mg, second was 100mg) with DS.

    This time I've been taking 100mg clomid for 5 cycles (about to start 6th) and no luck yet. Hmm!

    I had been off the pill for 8 months and not had a single AF before starting clomid the first time. Never had AF or used contraception since giving birth.

    Babymuddle, clomid is used to make you ovulate. Usually you have to take a course of provera (progesterone) first to bring on AF, and then you take clomid for 4 or 5 days depending on your FS. I take it CD5-9.

    The brand Clomid is around $33 I think, and the generic brands are a bit cheaper (around $27 from memory).

    We're having a clomid baby too!

    We were TTC for 35 months since going off the pill. We had unexplained infertility. I had a history of fibroids, but these weren't seen to be a problem...

    Tried 1 cycle of clomid (50mg) at 35 months TTC and got my first BFP ever!!! I'm now 14 weeks!

    I just wish I had tried it earlier. I only thought it was for girls who weren't ovulating. I was, so didn't think it would help. I heard later that it acts a bit like a "hormone turbo booster"...which I think helped me. I suspect that I had a few very very early pregnancies that never made it implantation stage...maybe due to lack of hormonal support.

    Along with my first cycle of clomid, I was also charting, using pre-seed, BD-ing more than ever (my Dh even went on a form of viagra to keep up!!!) and had just had a HSG (tube scan/unblocking) in the previous few weeks. I think it was a combination of all those things that helped!

    Wishing you all the best!
