Thread: Questions about Clomid

    Hi Ladies

    Sorry for the lengthy time between posts, I know pretty slack considering I have only just joined this forum a few months ago. Since my last post I have been on holidays, got engaged! woo hoo and it now appears that my TTC journy may be at an end according to the HPT I took this morning - actually I did all three of them as I couldn't believe my eyes! Maybe that holiday was just the thing we needed? Still needing to get to the Dr to confirm via blood test but I don't think 3 HPT could be wrong.

    I can't believe it has happend so quickly after only one course of clomid I was sure I was going to be in this for the loooong haul. Can't get into GP for another two weeks as I now have to travel for the next week for work, so no doubt it will be the longest two weeks of my life. I'm not sure I am really going to believe it until I hear it from the Dr.

    I can't stop shaking and crying - happy tears though! I honestly thought this was never going to happen.

    Well fingers crossed we get a good result from the blood test. Will let you all know how it goes as soon as I know.



    Baby dust to you all!

    Hi there,

    I am very new to this site, we have been TTC for about 12 months and still nothing. I have never had any problems with my periods but since having the implant removed I now have a 35 day cycle. We know my husband is fertile as he already has a child.

    Just looking into heading to the dr to get some answers and possibly some clomid if necessary, does anyone know if I will need to see a gyno or just a GP? and if I have to see a gyno will I need a referral.

    Thanks for your help

    I think a gp can start you on clomid .If you want/need to see a specialist I think you'll need a referral,I 've always needed one.Good luck

    Hi NellyM
    You do need a referral from your GP to go to a specialist, otherwise you get nothing back from medicare apparently. Sorry to hear that you've been TTC for so long. I too am on a long journey (14 months), but we have one miracle after 2 years of trying, so I'm hoping that wanting another isn't too greedy!
    There are some great fertility specialists around, and from my experience you are best to go with one of those becasue they will check everything before prescribing clomid or any other drug. I'm not sure where you are based but DR Gronow or any of the doctors at Melbourne IVF clinic in Fitzroy are excellent from what I've heard. You can ask your GP to refer you to whom ever you wish.

    AFM: Scan No 1 today. It's Day 15 and no mature follies yet. Another scan on Friday (DS's 3rd birthday...how the time flies!)to see whats happening.

    Hope everyone is well!

    Hi girls!
    Does anyone else have a billion scans per cycle of clomid to check for follies? I've have 3 this round already and possibly another on wednesday. What does your doc do?

    Hi Everyone,

    I am new to all this bloging - just found i need the support as my husband and i are trying to have a baby.

    I have PCOS and the doctor put me on Provera to bring on a period and then on my sec day of the period i start Clomid.

    I am worried - i never thought i would need to help have a baby.

    I had a miscarry in Sept 2007 - after then we didn't try - untill the last few months!

    Could anyone tell me what i am in for????

    I feel so alone - even though my husband is wonderful - he can never understand what it is like - i feel that i let he down.

    Mel

    Hi Bunnymel,
    Welcome to our forum. I have found this forum (and this site) to be a constant source of support. I have recenty been diagnosed at PCOS, ironically after I started clomid, during one of the scans. I was a bit shocked but hey there are much worse things I suppose!

    Firstly I would say definately take the clomid at night before you go to bed. Most of the girls on here have found it to be much better at night. There is a chance you will get hot flushes, be tired, maybe feel sick and if you in the unlucky 1% you might get migraine like head aches (I'm hoping I was the 1% for all of us!). After the first round, usually the symptoms are not as severe, well at least thats been my experience.

    Your doc may either schedule scans to check for follies, or a blood test on about day 21 to see if you've ovulated. As Matthew's mum said, ask for scans if you find things aren't going as planned. I know, for example, that I often don't ovulate untill day 25, so a blood test at day 21 isn't going to tell me much!

    Lastly, we all here hope your journey is short but sweet. I have one beautiful miracle clomid baby, and hopefully all will go smoothly for yourself and everyone else here!

    Good luck!

    I am very excited!
    I have just had a scan and I have a 26mm (the biggest follie I've ever had) and my blood test showed I'm surging so I'm going to ovulate on my own without the trigger shot!

    YAHHHH!
    Two Week Wait here I come!
