Clomid is an ovulatory stimulating drug used to help women who have problems with ovulation. Because Clomid can be prescribed by a gynecologist and doesn't require a fertility specialist, it's also the very first fertility treatment tried for most couples. If a woman has irregular cycles, or anovulatory cycles (menstruation without ovulation), Clomid may be tried first. Clomid is often used in treating polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) related infertility It may also be used in cases of unexplained infertility or when a couple prefers not to use the more expensive and invasive fertility treatments. (However, it's important to remember that the more expensive treatment is sometimes the most appropriate.) When comparing women who took Clomid with women who received either a placebo or no treatment, researchers found that there was no improvement in pregnancy rates, even when Clomid was coupled with IUI treatment. (IUI is insemination.) It’s not unheard of for a woman to lie to her doctor to get Clomid, thinking it will help her conceive faster. Not only will it likely not help her get pregnant faster, but now she’s at risk for experiencing side effects. (Some of those side effects You should follow the directions your doctor gives you. With that said, the most common dosage of Clomid is 50 mg taken for five days, on Days 3 through 7 of your cycle. I am 29 yo and took low dose clomid 25mg for only 1 cycle and got pregnant. I miscarried my baby in March of 2009 and have been ttc ever since. She diagnosed me with pcos and put me on metformin 1500 mg (for PCOS), prenatals and progesterone 200 mg (to start my period). I have had some symptoms i know only cause my hubby says im meaner then ever and then sweet and then angry.. and my tummy seems to buldge out a little more than normal, so he says..(: I have been carefuly pushin on my tummy to see if its just bloated but im thinkin that is not the case.(: Oh and lets not forget the headaches.. And beware coz the clomid plays nasty mind games,well it did with me anyway. i was taking the clomid because i have had recurrent mc's (5). You might have better luck posting your question on one of the pregnancy forums. says it doesn't help to stress but i really can't help it. I'm not sure if i could handle another cycle on clomide..........advice please!!!!!!!!! We had to not try for 3 months so my hormones could regulate and my cycles could regulate too! It didnt really do much for me as i ovulate on my own anyway,but it was meant to help me get bigger follicles coz of my age more than anything. the thought the md had was that my follicles were small so the clomid would increase their size and make a more viable pregnancy. but the clomid did work and if we ever decide to ttc again then i will cosider using it. I am 30 and I used Clomid for 2 cycles on days 5-9 and for one cycle on days 2-6. It didn't help the LPD nor did it get me pregnant. Many of us here on the Fertility Forum are still waiting for our BFP's. Well after about 3 more months of trying still for negative results so I asked to be put on clomid! My cycles are regular 28 days and it was still the same even on clomid. I really don't like it - I am a basket case on it!! I am 26 yrs old and I am currently on my 4th cycle of Clomid. All the best, Gigi I took clomid for one cycle so far - My dr said I definitely ovulated and am waiting to see if we conceived. She kept me on metformin, prenatals and changed my progesterone pills to the progesterone gel that you insert and she added clomid 50 mg! The biggest thing about clomid is that it dries up your CERVICAL MUCUS. First three cycles were 50mg and current cycle is 100mg. I have ovulated every month so the Clomid is working...not pg yet. My dr had me wear an estrogen patch to keep my uterus lining from thinning too much - it worked - every ultrasound should a very healthy uterus Good Luck! I have been diagnosed with Endromitiosis and was recommended by my Dr. After one month of that I got a negative pregnancy test. But if you take robittusin cough syrup that contains the only ingredient (gaufinesin). This month I'm trying an IUI with the Clomid, so we'll see!! I took Clomid for one cycle, but it thinned my uterine lining. So she upped my dose of clomid to 100 mg and I just found out last night I am pregnant and I go for my first appointment Monday!!!! Clomid worked for me and I will take it again when we want another baby if I have to! Take a spoonful morning and night but dont start to take it until youve taken the last clomid pill and stop as soon as you ovulate. You can also drink a glass of grapefuit juice daily alomgside the couch syrup and remember to drink plenty water. We tried for a while on our own and nothing happend so I decided to go see a specialist. I have yet to have my actual menstral for this month. wich all have came back negative..): I had blood work done on 11/19/10 an will find out the results tomorow morning...(: fingers crossed. It gives you a bloated stomach and false pregnancy symptoms.
