Thread: LTTTC & Taking Clomid/Metformin ~ July 2008 until 2009

    Default Finally on track

    Hi everyone,

    After a long wait my doc prescribed provera to bring on AF so that I could start taking clomid. After 9 days it finally started (light). Now it seems to have stopped.
    I was told to take it days 1-5 but Af seems to have stopped after only two days of very light flow. Can anyone tell me if this is normal and if I should continue taking the clomid. AF normally lasts much longer than this and is heavier. I'm really not sure what to do.

    Good luck to everyone I hope the side effects aren't getting to you. I have been taking the clomid at night but am finding myself very teary...embarrassing as I am staying with my sister in QLD on Hols.

    Hi everyone,

    Thanks for your reply Wantbaby#2, LSK & BEE!

    I did a HPT this morning and got another BFN, Today is CD 28, and since about an hour ago I have been getting AF type pains, so i think its safe to say we wont be having a bubba this year on the bright side there is always next month!

    I was going to try taking clomid at night this time and since you have all recommended it I def will. My side effects are horrible, I am as vauge as hell, coming out with some doozies of sayings and doing really weird things and i get light headed and feel preety flat so if i could sleep through the worst of that i would be happy.

    Thanks again I really appreciate it - Avonlea

    Hey Girls - wow I have missed a lot over the weekend with the posting!

    Well AF arrived on Friday evening - I knew it must have been coming because I was feeling ready to k... someone in the afternoon!!

    Anyway, so starting my next #5th attempt at clomid tomorrow, my FS cannot understand why I am not BFP yet, as I have been Oing every month BD when supposed and extra! and releasing at least 2 eggs each time. They have a feeling my tubes could be blocked or have endemetri (can't spell it!)...... So I have this attempt and if I am not by a certain date I have another appointment with my FS and he will do the dye blast and schedule me in for exploratory surgery - laprocomy or whatever. Anyone had one of these? How full on are they?

    Welcome to the new girls. Good luck to everyone this month!!

    Hi Girls,Referring to Bec asking about the dye blast known as Hycosy (for short) i had one done and it kinda hurt! They usually give you some pain killers before hand.It showed up on me that one tube was clear and the other had a slight delay (time of when the dye flows out the other end of the tube but nevertheless they told me thay were both clear.......NOT correct. 2 years later i had my Laparoscopy (last August) and was found to have had BOTH tubes blocked and Ashermans syndrome (scarring in the uterus and adhesions caused by sons caesarean 12 years earlier).Lap wasnt too bad...bit uncomfortable from all the gas they put in your abdomen but felt ok 4 days later.( i react to anaesthetic)
    Anyhow i am upto day 19 and think i ovulated 4 days ago.Had tender nipples for 2 days but now nothing except a bit of tearfullness which hubby is annoyed with.
    Well at least the sickness,headaches and sharp twinges at ov have stopped.Now it is the long ttw.

    Default good news for once yay

    Rang up the gyno today and clomid payed off- ovulation score of 105 so I may even have more than one egg- not sure how they test but the nurse said the sore was really high. So HPT next week and I should know for sure if it really really worked. Fingers and toes crossed

    Afternoon ladies,

    First up I'd like to thank everyone for the advice about taking clomid at night..... I'm on day 4 ( cycle day 6) of taking it and have maybe had 1 hot flush, that's it. To be quite honest the whole clomid thing has been a complete non event!

    Ellianna- fingerscrossed for a bfp!

    Tammara- good luck for Thursday let us know how you go.

    Wantbaby#2- thanks fir thatbit of info will keep that in mind when I have hsg.


    Arm- waiting for hsg on Friday afternoon and am looking forward to all the bd'ing that has to begin next week, haha whatever gets me closer to a bfp!!!

    Default my score

    Can a score of 105 in a blood test on day 21 for progesterone mean I could have twins? or at least have released more than one egg? Would be cool if i am just really curious. So tempted to do a HPT in case- but two docs have said I should wait a week.

    Hey girls

    im on my 4th day of the clomid and have had no side effect as discussed by other girls, until tonight. I have been sitting here chatting with an old friend listening to music and just got realy teary - dont know if it was the song that reminded me of my cousins death anniversary or the clomid but other than that things have been good. I appreciate the advice for taking it at night.

    How sweet would twins be Ellianna i have my fingers crossed for you

    I have told hubby next time (positive thinking) i get pregnent i will be doing nothing so i dont lose it

    HI ellieanna,
    Congrats on the test result.
    I asked my FS yesterday about the score levels and twins etc... as I released two eggs but he said that even if I released two or more catching them all is harder and the odds are relatively lowish. I am hoping we caught one at least so i am on the TWW now with you....


    please lets us have caught at least one.......

    MRZbaBy~ I am on the ttw with you too.Im at day 21.Had a tiny bit of cramping last night.Not sure what to think of that as i ovulated on day 14/15.Not sure if implantation might cause a bit of cramping??? Did anyone have cramping 5-7 days after ovulation???
    I am starting to get paranoid now,checking every symptom i get.I know that all symtoms of pms and pregnancy are the same but not sure about the light cramps.Any help would be great.
    Good luck girls.

    Hi girls!!
    this two week wait is horrible- although I've been given one week- still annoying. I caved last night and used my last HPT (even though fiance told me to wait) so now i have to buy more as (and as predicted) I got a negative result. Twins would be great- and I just got told the score of 105 not how many eggs I released so it may still be one (the nurse was quite short with me on the phone, I didn't get time to process it and ask questions). Whole idea of this was to at least have one child as well as to ovulate at least once. I'm glad clomid made my bit work properly- does feel a bit unnatural and a bit like cheating but when I think about it all clomid did was make my body do what other people's bodies do without help so its not too bad. I had horrible side effects- cramping and bloating were horrible. On top of it all I have sinusitus right now so I feel incredibly sore and stuffed up in the head (hopefully that doesn't ruin any possible chance of pregnancy- gosh I'm paranoid!).

    Fingers crossed for you all- I hope at least one of us get a possitive result as it will make the rest of us more hopeful- this thread has help me so much, so thank you to all who have contributed.

    A pile of baby dust to you all! xoxoxox

    Fistly Becc, I had the dye test done real early one when they were testing me and my dh to see if there were any major probs, my FS warned me that this test can be very uncomfortable and cause quite a bit of discomfort so advised me to take nurofen plus before hand, which i did and then didnt feel anything while the test was being done except for a little tingle when you could feel the stick like thing being put there.. Good luck!.
    Wantbaby:- Yes i had light cramps about 4-5 days after O, it was pretty painful but i am told that this is quite common!....Mine would come and go for a few days to..

    Ok so im up to day 32 now ( After 1st Chlomid round) I had light bleeding ( Kinda just brown blood) on day 27.I have been waiting for a call from my FS for the past week as i was unsure whether to start my chlomid based on light bleeding for 1/2 day. As i still have not heard i thought i should hold off. I called this morning and spoke to his secretary and she told me my day 21 levels were def 45 and asked if i had done a hp test i did one on day 24 ( i no way to early ) and said that i did one yesterday ( i forced myself to go to the toilet coz i was a bit to excited and wanting to see if i was p right away) i explained this to her and said that i was unsure if it worked properly as the purple surge that comes over the result window tool about 30 sec before it slowly went over ( usually covers straight away), she said that my fs would def call me today and thinks he will make me do a blood test .
    i ran out of Metformin tab's about 1 week ago and only got more yesterday im wondering if this would have an effect on getting my AF.?? I have no idea what to think anymore. I havent had any sight effect's but for he past week and half have been getting really hot flush's. So confused right now

    Ellianna - that is a pretty high score - could mean that you released more than one egg - I have been up around the 70 mark and those times I have released 2 eggs - so maybe you released 3!!

    Frustrated, i don't know why my specialist wanted me on chlomid for 4 months and then do the dye - but that is the way he wants. I have to do a blood test the day before i am due for the dye - it will be day 27 so should show some kind of results. I just wish it was now that I could do it. hate waiting for appointments!

    Good luck this month.

    Very excited for you Tammara that AF came - I must be pretty insinc with you now - I am now on day 6 of the cycle.

    Baby dust to all

    Don't start your clomid if you have not had a real period start, remember it could be implantation bleeding and starting clomid if you are pregnant is a no-no...Remember that the clomid gives the same side effects as being preg so just wait it out and take another test or get tested at the doctor's office, but don't start clomid until you're sure it didn't work. I thought clomid didn't work for me either and was waiting forever for a period so I could start the next round...turns out I O'ed late and got pregnant...so be careful not to take clomid unless AF arrives.

    I've got my fingers crossed for you!!!

    Hi Girls! Sending all the baby dust in the world over to you all!
