    Hi Debbie,
    That is awesome news....congrats!! Good luck with the move.

    HOw is everyone else doing?

    As for me....My FS told me to start Clomid 150mg even though I hadnt got AF and then two days later AF started! so not sure what is going on. I had really bad side effects with this cycle of Clomid...extreme nausea, hot flushes and even crazy lines in my vision. I didn't even take the last day's tablets.

    I started acupuncture this week too So hopefully that will help to kick start something too.



    Hope everyone is well.

    Morning Ladies,

    Hayseed - It sure sounds like Nick is a great FS, although I hope we don't need to get to that stage, it sounds as though we will be in good hands.
    Can you tell me if the offer IUI at Monash? I think I would like to explore this option before a full stim cycle.
    How are things going with you?

    Debbie - Congrats on your BFP - It's nice to hear that Clomid can still help after the period of taking it. Good luck with the move and all the best with whatever comes next.

    Anna - Congratulations on your BFP! All the best for a happy and healthy pregnancy.

    Sam - Good luck with your appointment this arvo, I hope that you get some answers to your questions!
    Have you seen him since you got AF half way through your cycle of Clomid?

    Well I am CD14 today, have had some EWCM so have been making the most of it IYKWIM
    Hoping that this cycle is the one.
    I am also having hormone monitoring done this cycle, so hopefully that may shed some light. My acupuncturist has also given me some herbs to take, so I am fairly sure I have covered all the bases.
    Hope everyone is well and coping with the stresses of TTC.
    Have a lovely day!

    Hey ATT!
    Fingers crossed this is the cycle for yoU!!

    Nope I haven't seen the Dr since getting AF half through my Clomid cycle. I am so nervous he is going to tell me that it is a bust because of what happened.
    Mind you, I am not expecting it to have worked anyway because it hasn't before.

    Hi Kellrobryan,

    You definitely could just be ovulating late. I have heard of a lot of women on Clomid that O late in their cycles.

    And you may have ovulated by the time of your BT...but it takes 7 days to show up in a BT that you have ovulated. So maybe another BT??

    Have you been charting your temps?

    Hey Penny!
    That is excellent news about the positive OPK....sending you lots of baby dust.

    Update for me....when I saw the Dr the other day and told him about my AF starting after I had started the Clomid he wasn't very optimistic He did a scan anyway and there was a 10mm follicle on my left ovary. He said that it might be growing?? ANd said to give it 3 weeks and if I hadn't got AF to do a HPT and if it was a BFN then I would have a laparoscopy and hysterscopy done and then start injections and IUI.
    I have started acupuncture too so hopefully that will help this little follicle grow so I don't have to have the lap and hyst and then the injections and IUI.

    Hope everyone is having a good day.

    Hey Kristie, I hope the 100mg works for you

    How is everyone else doing? We have been quiet in this thread lately!

    As for me....Clomid is a bust for me I just booked in to have a laparoscopy and hysteroscopy on 12th July. Then I will move into injections and IUI.
    I will keep having my acupuncture in the mean time too.

    Hope everyone is well.

    Hey Sammy,

    We have been a bit quiet!

    Clomid was a bust for us also. We are having our preliminary tests at Monash in June and will then decide the best way forward.

    Good luck with your Lap and then the IUI

    How are you finding the acupuncture?

    Hey ATT,
    I am enjoying the acupuncture. It is very relaxing. And I really like the lady I go too. I have my fingers crossed that it will kick start something!

    Hi everyone. Took my first clomid tablet today, so it seems a good time to introduce myself. I was about to start on it earlier this year when I discovered I had managed to fall pregnant - unfortunately that one didn't work out. My sister is pregnant after a couple of years of TTC - she was on clomid for a few months and it did the trick, which gives me hope. My FS says i should do IUI next cycle due to DH's lowish sperm count (confusing, because the brochure she gave me said it's not useful in cases of low sperm count).

    I've been lurking in the Long Term TTC forums for a bit and I notice people seem to have their cycles monitored when taking Clomid. My FS isn't doing this (except, I guess, when we do IUI). How do you guys know if/when you ovulate? I do temping but I imagine clomid might mess with this a bit.

    Here's hoping for very sticky BFPs for all of us.

    Welcome, mgm. I'm very sorry to hear about the miscarriage.

    When it comes to clomid - your temperature chart will still show when you ovulate, and OPKs will still show when you're about to. Your temperatures may go a little bit crazy while you are on the clomid tablets, but afterwards everything should still work as normal. Good luck with it! Clomid didn't work for me, but I'm using a drug - letrozole - that works in a similar way, my temperatures are much higher overall, and take a bit of time to come down after I finish taking it, but I still get a nice, clear thermal shift. I'm being monitored this time with blood tests, but I'm having a FET cycle with IVF so they need to.

    You'll find that IUI is ok when sperm count is a little low, but not when it is severely low.

    Once again, welcome and good luck!

    Hi mgm,
    Welcome!

    Sorry to hear about your miscarriage

    When I was taking Clomid my FS sent me for BT to see if I had ovulated. ANd I also asked to have scans to check if any follicles were growing. So if you wanted to have some scans or a BT or both, you could just ask your Dr.

    I really hope that Clomid does the trick for you.

    Afternoon Ladies,

    Sammy - Glad to hear that you are enjoying acupuncture, I have been having it for a couple of months now and I really enjoy it.

    Hayseed - Thanks for your well wishes - I will keep you posted. How have things been with you, you have been fairly quiet of late, hope you are ok.

    MGM - A big welcome, sorry to hear about your loss.
    Unfortunately this board is particularly quiet at the moment, some of us have graduated to the pregnancy forums, and others like Sammy and I have had no success with Clomid and are now seeking alternate routes.
    The only monitoring I had during my cycles on Clomid were day 21 tests, and in hindsight I wish I had requested more monitoring.
    Best of luck with the Clomid, I hope your BFP is right around the corner


    Have a nice night
