Clomid Check, Check

Passed my clomid check with flying colors. So we're on to Try #6 again. Follicle scan next Tuesday and I start my 100mg of clomid tomorrow. While I was getting everything in order today I realized that because of these past few months of forced breaks and annovulatory cycles we haven't even gotten a chance to use our new donor yet. Hopefully, this time we can give it a go.

It's hard to believe that we are still on Try #6, we've been on Try #6 since March. We've now hit 1 year of TTC with nothing but tears and heartache to show for it. It's amazing to read back how bright eyed and excited we were 12 months ago and how much more hardened we've come to this whole experience. It sometimes feels more like a second job where I'm only being given night shifts and working minimum wage. I just have to keep hoping that this past year has been for something. I can honestly say that doing this has been one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. I hope it's over soon.

I'm so sorry it's been so hard. I admire you for going back at it. And I'm hopeful for you this month!

Good luck to you both. I know it is a hard and tough road to travel, but I promise, one day when you have your little baby with you, it will have all been worth it. Here's thinking positive thoughts for you both!

Hey you two! We're on a really similar schedule this month. I start clomid tonight, my follicle scan is next Wednesday.

I haven't yet hit the one-year mark, but I'm getting close (September will be 10 months since try 1). This is try 7 for us. I thought I was prepared for it to be hard--but it was still way harder than even what I thought I was braced for.

I hear ya. Love to you both. It is so hard to have hope, so hard to keep trying, so hard to be brave.

Melissa- glad to see you back ttc. It is a hard journey. We are going on month 17. I wish it got easier. I just keep on thinking it has to happen at some point. Keep your head up and good luck this cycle.

Clomid Side Effects said...

My name is Helen Page and i would like to show you my personal experience with Clomid.

I am 30 years old. I have taken for 3 months. My progesterone level after my first dose of Clomid was 65 so I knew that I had ovulated. Couldn't try the second cycle on it because my husband went out-of-town while I was O'ing, go figure. Hoping it worked this month!!

I have experienced some of these side effects-
Mood swings, increased appetite, hot flashes, increased pain during ovulation, abdominal pain, mild but infrequent headaches. Also, I used to be on a consistent 28 day cycle, but I think Clomid might have lengthened it as I'm now on a 31-32 day cycle.

I hope this information will be useful to others,
Helen Page
