Hi there, I took Clomid two months and didn’t have that problem with ovulation so I can’t help you there. Don’t think you messed up your body, though! I’m sure it will adjust itself and if not, there are meds to help with that. What I’d like to know though, is have you had any other tests done? Generally, after one year of trying you switch to an RE. An OB is not really the best at helping women get pregnant. RE’s jobs are just that…to help figure out what the problem is and get you pregnant. I highly recommend making an appt. with an RE and getting the appropriate tests done. Also, I am one of many who don’t recommend Clomid being used under the guidance of an OB since an RE will actually do ultrasound monitoring and bloodwork during the CLomid cycle to make sure everything else is goiing well and most importantly to be sure you don’t have too many follicles so you don’t end up with triplets or more! The HSG will be a good step. Will that be with an RE? I have tubal issues so I am familiar with that. Wish you all the best and please don’t think your body is messed up! Hopefully your cycle will be back to normal soon and like I said if not, they can give meds to balance it out. 🙂

Oh no, big hugs to you!! I’ve been there and I know how tough it is! Unfortunately, I did have tubal issues discovered later (after doing Clomid and an IUI) so I had no choice but IVF. We did that and it worked! But please know that most women don’t have tubal issues and it could be something else, perhaps hormonal? I know many women just need progesterone or something else to help them get pregnant. Maybe that is all it is? I hope so! I’m glad you are seeing an RE. That will make you feel better, I’m sure. Ours made us feel that he would do anything to help us get pregnant and in the end it worked so the entire hard road was worth it! Please don’t feel like you’ve lost hope. I feel like now you will finally get answers and be on the road to success!! 🙂 Let me know if you ever want to chat. I truly know how hard and painful it can be but please try to stay positive. 🙂

Hi there. I’ve done seven (ouch) rounds of Clomid. Four rounds with a GYN and three with an RE. I also ovulate on my own, however the GYN and even my RE felt that the Clomid would give my ovaries an extra “push” for stronger ovulation. I never experienced any wonky cycles after taking it the Clomid, so unfortunately I cannot help you there. I would give it another week and if you still haven’t ovulated, try asking for provera to start a new cycle. I’m sorry that you’re going through this, those of us who have or are trying for 1+ years know how extremely aggrivating this whole process is.

Are your cycles normally regular (do you O on the same date each cycle)?

Please feel free to join us on the 1+ TTC board. Good luck to you!

FutureMrs.Wood:  That’s great you did ovulate!! My tubal issues were caused by fibroids. I had a dozen fibroids removed (found after a miscarriage in 2010) and my RE had to remove one of my tubes in the process since it was damaged from a fibroid. The following year we found out my remaining tube was and still is filled with fluid. So IVF was our only option. But many women with tubal issues sometimes can have the fluid drained or if you have one blocked tube, at least you can still have success with the remaning tube. Don’t worry that you have tubal problems, yet. It’s not very common so hopefully it isn’t that. Good luck with all the tests and I hope you have a gameplan soon!
