    Im on my 5th cycle with clomid with the trigger now. If this cycle fails we will most likely be moving onto IVF. The only side effects I had was hot flushes and dry cm so preseed is very helpful. I think testing could be different for everyone but I tested the trigger out of my system my first cycle and at 8dpt I stopped getting positives. When i first started clomid my nurse said that I should get my bfp by the 3 cycle on clomid. We continued with a few more rounds of clomid because i wasnt ready to do IVF but i didnt want to stop trying altogether. Im ovulating and dh is all good so that leaves IVF or IUI.

    I’ve had two failed cycles of Clomid and trigger, one with ti and the other with iui.  I had two cycles before that with just Clomid, no trigger too..  No side effects at all and never tested until 14 dpo.    my re says that statistically, Clomid and femera have the same results, but onman individual by individual case, she has seen where femera worked where Clomid did not.  In trying 2 more iui before possibly ivf since iuis are just a copay for me.

    I luckily fell pregnant my first round of clomid + metformin + trigger + IUI.  I did take clomid prior without trigger and it never helped me to ovulate until I added the met and trigger. I didn’t have side effects with clomid and I got my BFP at 12dpiui which was 14 dp trigger.  It was confirmed with a blood test at 14dpiui (16 dp trigger).  Best of luck, I hope it works!!

    Should I expect very bad moods? — > I didn’t have any changes in my mood

    Did you find it dried up you cm? I don’t remember if it did, but used preseed just in case anyways. 

    At what point can you test without getting a false positive? Do you have some cheapy PG tests? You can start testing after you get the trigger and watch the + fade gradually as days go on. Once you see no + test after the trigger, you can be pretty certain a postive after 2 weeks is the real deal!

    We didn’t get the trigger (didn’t end up needing it), but we got pregnant first cycle of Clomid and our little guy is almost 6 months old now… had a perfect pregnancy to boot! Good luck, try not to stress (it won’t help 🙂 ) and keep us posted!!!

    phoebephoebo:  Yup, I was on the 1+ boards for a little bit.  Metformin is sometimes also called glucophage – it’s a drug used primarily for diabetes but in some with PCOS it’s been shown to help with insulin resistance which can sometimes be a cause for wonky cycles for those with PCOS.  

    Where are you in your cycle now?  Have you started the clomid?
