It's not reccommned to use for more than 4 mths in a row.

We finally tried IVF which worked the 1st time! I also have 8 embryos frozen.
I highly reccomend IVF.
if any of you have questions about IVF, I'd be happy to chat about it.

Oh I guess I should say that I was on Clomid for DD. I did 2 cycles. I didn't notice any side effects. Though hubby was jumped for about a week.

Hi Dagny I added you to Hopefully your visit goes well with your RE!!! I would talk to them to see if they can move you to anything else while you are TTC/PG you never know till you ask Also see if there is a ammount of time you have to wait to TTC....I always forget to ask questions like that when I go to the RE so I just end up harassing the nurse with phone calls afterwards

So I am on CD50 & AF is not here I really mean it when I say I might breakdown if I dont get AF tomorrow. I just want this stupid cycle to end. I am scared on some levels to start Clomid but I am not even worried about that at this moment getting over this STUPID cycle is worrying me the most I KNOW it will come because of the Provera & I know I am probably like this cause it is my 1st time with Provera but I am so sick & tried of the "cramping" & then NOTHING & we arent talking little cramps either!!!

So lame lame lame. I am right there with ya Mama, maybe we should have a pity party with just ourselves... But, I am sure it will pass, I feel like I am a veteram with stupid cycles and clomid and provera and "stuff" Gah, it's so lame, I TTC'd for DS for 5 years....and that was WITH help, so..... (I HOPE it doesn't take that long this time)
The lamest one I had was one AF LONG ago, I bled heavily for 15 days straight, I was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO done by the time I was done......that was the worst, I Promise...

My AF is still twinking around too, I am bout to spazz......do you think it would be bad to take the provera even though I have already started to bleed a little, though be it a little bit, just enough for a liner, and it's mostly brown by the time I see it anyway..

Re: ***Clomid Club***

Clomid at 50 mg will not give you horrible side effects. If it does, you NEED to call your OB/RE to switch you to another med. It says it right on the sheet the pharmacist gives you.
I am usually a VERY moody person and talked at length with my OB about the risk of extra moodiness. My DH told him that if my moods got any worse, we weren't going to do Clomid. OB agreed and said to try it for one month. I was afraid of crying all day long. I've actually felt better and I've only had one crying spell (I was yelling at my ds). BUT he said if I started getting moody or raging, to call him immediately and he would switch to something else.

Now, your periods will be heavier. That's because it's WORKING. Clomid encourages the buildup of the uterine lining. I had a friend who was on CLomid and didn't get heavier AF. It didnt work for her and she had to try something else.


Anyway, took my last pill yesterday and now I'm just waiting to O.

Re: ***Clomid Club***

Marlene~ I think you could. What you described is just old blood anyway. Do you have cysts? I do that when a cyst pops and then a week later I'll start AF. Did your RE give your cycles a time limit? Mine told me that he didnt want me to go over 35 days( I could wait for months before she'll show up). Brown discharge doesn't count as AF. Then on day 36 I was to start Provera.

I know brown discharge doesn't count as AF, but it was playing tricks, like one time, it would be bright red, then a few hours it would be brown, then a few hours there would be nothing, then maybe some brown, then bright red again....gag , it was confusing.
