I honestly would not wanted to take it without some sort of monitoring. I think her advise to see an RE first is actually really smart. RE’s work with those drugs all the time and they will have a much better idea of what dosage is right for you.

Good luck!

@StaceyA:  I don’t live in Canada, but I’m going to agree with @elchalten:. I didn’t get monitored during my Clomid cycles and I really wish I had, just to know what was going on. My last cycle on it I had extreme fear of OHSS due to some mad pains I was having in my right ovary. I even emailed my doctor and she didn’t seem the least bit concerned. So, I think it would be good to have it monitored that way you can get another look at those pretty little ovaries you got in there and see what the follicles are doing and confirm O. Good luck. Please check back and let us know how the appt went.

@StaceyA:  I had to see an OB (not a specialist like an RE), but not through my GP. Gp wasn’t knowledgeable enough to know what was going on, but OB was. Turns out I didn’t need it, even though I did get a prescription.

My OB put me on metformin first, and said sometimes that’s enough to get people ovluating. It worked for me. About 1 months after I was on the full dose (1500 mg/day) I started ovulating. I ovulated twice, and caught the egg on the second ovulation. I’m now 11w6d preggers!

I’d suggest that you’d want to see atleaset an ob. If my GP had of given me clomid I wouldn’t have responded to it at all, because my horomones were all messed up and I needed the metformin to get me all back in whack.
