    Hi Guys,

    Sorry I've not been around lately but as I work Shift it can get quite hectic!!!!!
    I did my first cycle of Clomid last month and everything worked beautifully - although I had a long cycle (36 days) I did actually O on CD20.
    No pregnancy unfortunately but hey!!!
    I'm now day 18 of my 2nd cycle and my levels are 270 - extremely low compared to last month. I have another blood test on Wednesday but if my levels have not come up they will stop this cycle.
    This is sooooooo frustrating. How can it work one month and not the next????
    Has anyone else had this happen??? And does anyone have any explanation they can offer - I just dont get it.
    Trying to stay positive and get on with it - but disappointed at the same time. Sorry about the long post - and I hope all is well with the rest of you,
    let me know how you guys are getting on.
    :bdust: dust: to you all.......

    Hi Lexie,

    I didn't end up using Clomid (fell pg on the metformin), but the OB explained it to me that you start on a very low dose (to avoid multiples!) and from there up the dose each month until you ovulate and then remain on that dose. He did say tho, that it's not uncommon for a certain dose to work one month and not the next. If you don't O this cycle, my guess is your dr will up the dose again for next cycle.

    Good luck with it all.

    Hi Lexie
    I did 4 cycles of clomid the 1st with 50mg it worked 29 day cycle O'd CD14, the 2nd 50mg again didn't work didn't O at all, 3rd 100mg worked 29day cycle O'd CD14, 4th cycle 100mg didn't work didn't O. So yes unfortunately it can happen. The 4 cycles took me 7 months in all so I asked to not do anymore and am now on my 3rd cycle of AIH.
    Good luck, I hope it works!!!

    Hey Guys,

    Thanks for your replies....I guess I was jumping the gun a little bit!!!!!!

    Shezabelle - Sounds like you went through exactly the same thing - So sorry it did not end up working for you....hope all goes well with AIH - keep me posted - I have my fingers crossed for you.

    Ivana_baby - Good to know that if Clomid doesnt work I have another option - how long did it take before you fell pregnant on Metformin? Thank you for your supportive info.

    Melissa - thank you so much for your kind words.

    Cheers Lexie xox

    My first month on Clomid I was on 50mg ... no O.

    2nd month dr put me up to 100mg and I did O, but he said my levels were really low and so this month I'm supposed to go up to 150mg!

    Mind you ... CD42 today and still no AF. Had major sore nipples last week and some cramping ... took a PG test just in case but BFN ... actually since I've started taking clomid I now get PMS ... very weird!

    Hope it all works for you this month!

    Lexie - hows this month going for you?

    I hope things are going well.

    I am also taking Clomid.. well about to go back on it as well as taking Metformin...

    my specialist prescribed 50mg of Clomid for me from day 2 - day 6 and I ovulated on day 11 and became pregnant. If Clomid works successfully you should ovulate anywhere from 5 - 9 days after the last Clomid pill for that cycle...

    I asked my specialist why he wants me to start taking Metformin with my Clomid.. he said that it helps the Clomid to work more efficiently and lower my insulin levels and helps prevent miscarriage.

    Anyways I hope you are well and everything is going to plan for you...

    Sorry Lexie! I'm a bit hopeless keeping track of where I post (I don't like the notification thing... but perhaps I should use it )

    I had AF after 6 weeks on Metformin, then I O'd around day 20 on that following cycle (but DH was overseas!) but I fell pg on the 2nd cycle (O'd on day 13). Metformin gave me a beautiful textbook cycle. I printed the chart out for the OB, and even he was impressed. hehe.

    Hope everything's going ok with you!

    Hey Girls,

    Well - Day 21 of my 3rd cycle on clomid and my eostrogen levels are only at 150!! So they have cancelled this cycle and upped my clomid intake to 2 tablets. So hopefully something will happen there.
    My last cycle was also cancelled on day 21 only to find out that I did end up O on CD31 - Go figure!!!!
    So now I just wait for AF and go it all again #-o
    How are all the rest of you going?? Any good news yet - please keep me informed
    Much love and baby dust to all
