Thread: Questions about Clomid

  1. #91

    Default

    Hello everyone!



    So took the first Clomid Pill last thurs night - all good. Now keeping in mind I havent had a period since nov last year AND the fact that the gyno did a hundred blood tests on me and all said i was not ovulating etc etc imagine my surprise when i awoke sun morning with MY PERIOD! WTF?! So thank God i had a brainwave and managed to get a call back from my gyno on a sunday who was on a golf course ha ha he said to stop taking the clomid wait til day 5 then start. (id already taken 3 tabs by this point)
    So starting again this thursday! Can anyone explain why I got my period all of a sudden?!
    It seems when I get on the road to getting it fixed i.e with the clomid something happens

    Hi Kell

    i was adv by my doc to start taking Clomid the 1st day my period finishes do you think that this could be correct or should i be taking it while i am having my period????

    Default Feeling alittle lost

    Hey Guys

    I was dignosed with POS about a year ago and am now my husband and i are wanting a baby (been trying natualy for about 6 mths). My Dr has recommended Clomid. I have done some searching on the web about it and i am now more confused then ever. Does any one have any info or maybe just enlighten me on your experiances. I have also been seeing a nathropath to help reglulate my periods. I am just feeling a little lost at the moment and am longing for a baby. It is so hard to watch all your friends around you have babies. I havent started clomid yet but will be soon, any tips ????

    Hi NIcole

    I have just finished my 2nd dose of clomid trying to fall pregnant, i am on 50mg a day i find the best time to take it is right before you go to sleep. that way any side effects towards it you will sleep through it....I find Clomid really good it gives you the inspiration that you need to have a little bundle of joy.

    what mg will you be taking?

    ok i got my period on the 19th Feb so i am up to day 10 ( if i am right). i havent tried charting my temprature but i think i might start doing that but then i dont want to seem like i am trying too hard
    Hey Coops, I know what you mean about the whole temperature thing, it's a win/lose situation I think, on the one hand it's great for pin pointing if the clomid is working & also a good gauge of whether you are pregnant or not & also can pin point your date of ovulation but on the other not so nice hand it does have a tendancy to make you over analyse it all & probably worry a little more! The accupuncture wasn't too bad, I think the first session was about $90 so not cheap but after that it was only about $60, if you have private health insurance you can claim some money back as well & it's well worth it as long as you research someone that specialises in fertility issues.

    Im not sure about that to tell you the truth, my specialist told me to take it day 2 of my period through to day 6 of my period & my friend was on it from day 5 of her period for 5 days but I must say i've never heard of taking it after a period so maybe you should ask that question when you see the doc next because there may be a good reason why you need to take it after? Sorry that wasn't much help was it?

    Hi Nicole, I agree with coops about taking the clomid at night, it definately lessened the symptoms for me as well. I know how you feel though as it's all very overwhelming at first but trust me when I say it's all worth it in the end. I have a lot of friends who have had to clomid & it's actually worked on all of them so it has a fantastic track record especially with pcos. I was diagnosed with pcos about 12 months ago as well & I felt like it was all a bit hopeless, at that stage we had been trying for 6 months only to find out I wasn't ovulating at all. All up it's been 18 months & i've had 4 rounds of clomid, each a bigger ammount than the last & just when I thought it wasn't going to work on the last round it did & I fell pregnant so it can definately turn out just as great for you as I have a bad case too. Im now 9 weeks pregnant on Sunday so fingers crossed, but talking to people in this thread with similar circumstances definately helped me get through it so I hope that you feel a little better? By the way I think the naturopath is a great idea, I was saying to coops last week that I also saw a naturopath & accupuncturist that specialise in fertility issues & I think that had a lot to do with the clomid working.

    Hi Nicole

    I am sure everything will go well for you its a very daunting experience to start but once you have started on clomid you will feel a little bit more relaxed to let the medication do what is meant to do.

    I wish you all the best with it.also by seeing a natropath you are also helping the process along i havent been to see a natropath yet but as Kell advised me that it would be a good thing to do.

    Nicole i know how you feel with having all these friends around with babies i have to keep apologising for sometimes being selfish with them lol just that the cluckiness gets to me sometimes lol.
    But the more you inundate yourself with the bubbas is the more experience with them that you will receive that way you are fully experinced when your own little bundle of joy comes along. thats how i look at it.

    Thanks Coops and kell77,

    I know things will work out for me in the end . It is just the waiting and not knowing that is getting to me . I got my blood test results back today and it turns out that i am not "o" which i thought i was stupid me thought because u get a period ur "o" turns out i was wrong. So now i feel like i have wasted 6mths with my natropath and am not sure what to do now , do i stay or do i give him the flick (the natropath that is ). Any way i have to go for an ultrasound on thursday been having pain the past few days stupid PCOS, hopefully the cysts arent to big and my dr can start me on clomid if they are i have to go in and get them drained so fingers crossed.

    Thanks so much for your words of wisdom and encouragement

    I will keep u informed oxoxo nicole

    Yes it's all very confusing at times isn't it, I assumed I was "o" too 7 don't know if I had for years, I think when you are on the pill too it masks so many problems & you have no idea of any issues until you come off! I will be definately keeping my fingers & toes crossed for you for Thursday & I hope all goes well & you get to start the clomid. I think once you are able to start the clomid it will be a little bit of a relief as you feel like you are doing something towards the problem, well that's how I felt about it, plus there are so many success stories about woman with pcos having healthy babies so try to keep that in your mind. Wishing you the best of luck & let us know how you go Thursday?

    Hi Kell77

    no news as yet i am due round the 20th so we will just wait and see.

    How are you going?

    That's the hardest bit about this whole process isn't it, all the waiting around, it feels like we always have to wait for something? I thought that would ease up a little once I actually fell pregnant but I can tell you that's not true, now im anxious as I really want to get past this first trimester hurdle, but if im honest I doubt it will ease up then either! Im doing ok, I really don't have many symptoms at all so I guess that's good, now im just counting down the days until I have my 12 week ultrasound which is on the 30th March so im 9 weeks 2 days today. I'll have everything crossed for you for the 20th then & let me know how you go?

    the waiting is the hardest thing to go through its like life is teaching us to have patients, and sometimes the days feels like its going so slow but then other days feels like they are going really quick which is always a good thing. I hope the 12 week ultrasound goes well for you, just think soon enough you will be hearing that little heartbeat.
    Thats fantastic that your not getting morning sickness or anything like that, thats the only part of the pregnancy i am not looking forward to is the sickness.but i have done some research and found there are some natural remedies for that.
    Thanks mate we are just waiting to see what comes of the 20th as i said to my husband if its not this month we will keep going i am not giving up.... i will definately let you know how i go though.

    Hi Nicole

    I am so sorry to hear about you ending up in hospital last night the pain for you must be excruiating.
    Our fingers are crossed for you as well and also our toes, it must be so frustrating for you to go through the waiting process.
    Nicole that is what we are here for to chat and cry and just talk about what is going on and how we are dealing with the emotional rollercoaster.
    I had a dream last night that was so real i woke up and had to check i dreamt that i gave birth to a 2 month old baby girl in my bathroom, then when i had to go to hospital they wouldnt let me take her with me. and kept her at a seperate hospital..... i am hoping that isnt a sign for anything.
