My friend took it. She has PCOS. I believe she did either two or three rounds of it. On the last round, she ended up pregnant. She is due to give birth next month to a girl.

I’m currently 12w pregnant after my first round of Clomid. I was out on 100mg my first round. I was ovulating but after 15mo of trying and normal hsg, hormone levels and SA for my DH, my dr decided it was our next step. Have you had any testing done? hsg, hormone checks, SA for FH? If you haven’t had these types of tests done, I woule strongly recommend it to make sure clomid is right for you. Good luck!

@mrsedwardslpn:  As I recall from your previous threads you have never charted & have never considered it despite the advice of many bees. Without doing this, no reputable doctor would prescribe you clomid! You could be ovulating fine & your dysfunctional uterine bleeding is probably preventing implantation.

I think you need to get to the bottom of why your body is not conceiving before looking for an “easy fix”. Clomid will not get you pregnant if your problem isn’t ovulation related.

My friend used two rounds of Clomid and an HCG shot to get her beautiful baby boy.

But a doctor (a good one) will do lots of tests on you before perscribing Clomid… because if you don’t know what the problem is, Clomid might not be needed. If that’s the case, you could actually cause ovarian hyperstimulation (which is bad).

We tried for 12 cycles. I had blood work, charted, HSG, SA for DH, and then we were prescribed Clomid 50 mg. First cycle I took it days 5-9, BFN. Second cycle I took it 3-7, BFP. I will be 6 weeks tomorrow.

I have a friend that is 35 weeks pregnant with triplets that were conceived on Clomid. Be aware that Clomid increases your chances of multiples.

I have low estrogen, which causes low progesterone and lazy ovulation. Not sure why it was said that you MUST chart to start Clomid, …you don’t HAVE to. Most doctors don’t even take a look at charts if you bring them. I didn’t chart until I started Clomid. I too ovulate, but it’s irregular and just not strong enough. So to answer your question, yes, I’ve tried 4 rounds of Clomid, none of them were successful. We’re moving on to IUI w/injectable meds (FSH, possibly LH),Clomid, and a trigger shot, along with progesterone suppositories next cycle. It sounds as if your doctor has done all the necessary tests. Next step I’d look into is getting an HSG. Good luck to you!

I didn’t but my mom took it to have me, she had 2 prior miscarriages and PCOS. I think she took it for a couple of months and then she got pregnant with me. It can increase your chance of having multiples though, although I was just a singleton pregnancy.

I’m on my second cycle of clomid right now so I can’t speak to success.  I can answer your question about side effects, though.  I tend to have mood swings the days I am taking the pill and I had hot flashes that lasted for a week or so after I was done taking the pills.

I unfortunately did not have any luck with Clomid.  I did the maximum life-time allowance of clomid, which is 10 rounds, at all different doses and had no success.  We also did 2 IUIs with no success.  Right now I am 27 weeks pregnant with our little miracle babe (conceived totally naturally).  

When my first doctor put me on Clomid, he did not even look at the months worth of charts I brought.  And when I finally went to the fertility clinic, they also did not ask for charts or anything like that, and all of those doctors were reputable.  My fertility specialist actually told me to stop charting because it was causing anxiety and unecessary stress.  So don’t feel pressured to chart because so many other women do it.  You do what’s right for.

Got pregnant on my second round of Clomid of 100mg. I didn’t have any side effects on 50mg or 100mg. Do beware about the increased chances of multiples. My doc ran tests and was pretty convinced I dropped multiple eggs.
