    Thank you so much Hollye, it's nice to know people wish you luck! Yep doing it on day 21 which is Thursday this week so im keeping my fingers crossed & if I don't "o" then ill they will test on day 28 to see if by some chance it happened later. Did you have obvious symptoms that you ovulated because im a bit worried I haven't "o" because i've had no noticeable symptoms? Also did you ever take your basal body temperature when you were trying?

    nope! i tried nothing. I was soooo certain i didnt "o". When he told me i was like "are u sure?". the only time i took my temp was when my period was due and i noticed it was a little up!!! ahhh how exciting! everything is crossed for u!

    Thanks Hollye, I think im going to stop bothering to take my temp as it's really doing my head in trying to analyse it etc, I mentioned it to my doc & she said she wouldn't put too much emphasis on it as unless you really know what you are looking for then it can be more misleading & some peoples temp only change by 0.1 or 0.2 so it's hard to tell. Well im glad you didn't have any sign of ovulation as now im not quite as worried!

    Hi there
    Just after a bit of information on clomid. Last friday I went to specialist and he has given me prescription for Clomid. I have read the info but I am unsureas to when I should take it (morning or night). I noticed a couple of posts recently that a couple are currently taking it and was wondering how it was going.

You'll be fine, im sure of it & the doctor is obviously very confident of it & they wouldn't say that if he didn't believe it so try & think positive & relax & ill think good thoughts for you too By the way do you ever monitor your body basal temperature? I've been doing it but it's doing my head in so I think ill stop as im analysing it too much.
    Wow Kell, Even when I was on the pill I started to spot a little. Yes I have been taking my basal temperature its kind of annoying and yes I keep analysing it too. Its making an interesting pattern but not exactly what the doctor said it should do, but then again its not what he said the opposite would be like. Im so confused. I guess when I call him in a couple of weeks time he will explain. Hopefully

    Hi Christine, so what has your temperature been reading, mine doesn't seem to deviate much from day to day which is why im a bit worried about whether the clomid is working or not? I think I should probably stop doing it as I think it's making me more anxious as im analysing it too much, the only deviation i've had has been yesterday morning my temp was 35.90 & today it was 36 & it's usually between approximately 36.30 - 36.45?

    Hi Nellyann,
    Welcome! Both the chemist & my specialist told me that there isn't a specific time to take clomid, only that you should try & take it at the same time of the day every day so that you don't forget a dose so I guess it's just when it's easiest for you? They also recommend you take it along with food or after food but I will say that I took mine after dinner every night because I had quite a few side effects from it & found that if I took it earlier in the day they affected me too much where as at night I went to bed so a lot of the side effects didn't bother me as much, hope that helps but I can't speak for Christine & Hollye! Not sure how the clomid is going so far but i have my first blood test tomorrow to see if i've "o" so ill post my results next week!

    Hi Nellyann
    I have just finished my 1st dose of Clomid saturaday just gone. I was told to take it each morning but I dont think it reaslly matters when you take it. The first day I took it I was fine but then after the second day I got really tired and felt ill. Occassionally I ached all over but it wasnt anything too stressful. I just dont like feeling sick.
    It will be great to hear about another persons journey.

    Kell. My temp has been weird. It is 36.4 one day then the next its high, then low etc.. like: 36.4, 36.5, 36.4, 36.6, 36.4, 36.7, 36.75, 36.4. On the graph it looks funny but im starting to analyise it and its not looking fantastic. I dont know though, its just me. When I look at the temp I dont really understand why there is so much change in mine.

    Thankyou very much for the replies. Very helpful and great to actually hear from people that have an idea as I dont know anyone personally that is having to do this. So big thanks. I will keep an eye out on what is happening. I will see how my first lot goes and how it effects me. I will be starting next week. Yeah!!

    Default Just Starting

    Hi

    Just starting on Clomid tomorrow, this is my second time on it the last time was 4 years ago to no avail. They over stimulated me last time and I landed in hospital bleeding badly. This time have regular periods thanks to metformin & menstracare(from natropath) feeling very apprehensive but hoping it works this time

    Worried!
