I didn’t ovulate at all on Clomid and I found the side effects to be pretty awful! My doctor switched me to Femara instead, which worked but I ovulater late even with dose increases. We are probably going to start injectables and iui next cycle if this one didn’t work! Good luck!

Lizetta20:  I have a similar story.  Went off BC in August and started trying right away.  We weren’t going to try seriously until March of this year, but my doctor told us it was essentially now or never (I have PCOS and endometriosis and my doctor didn’t think I’d be able to concieve if we didn’t act soon).  My cycles aren’t three months long (only 42 days), but still longer than my doctor wants.  So, she put me on Clomid.  This is my first cycle on it.  I ovulated later than she wanted (she was hoping for CD15-17, but I think it will be CD21) but I ovulated, so that’s all I really care about. I read somewhere that it can take 3 cycles to get your body to regulate on Clomid, but I could be wrong on that.  I hope it works for you this cycle!

I’m pretty much in the same boat OP, we also started TTC in August with a if it happens it happens view on it. But I’ve had really long cycles too, my current cycle is going on 4 months! UGH My doctor also gave me provera and clomid, I just finished the provera yesterday and I start the clomid on cycle day 3. So this I haven’t gone through it yet but I just wanted to let you know your not alone! Hopefully the next round you at least ovulate and hopefully get you BFP! and I’m right there with you on everyone asking at family gathering when were going to have kids… like were trying people stop asking!!.. except I dont tell them were trying lol 🙂

Lizetta20:  My story was similar. Irregular/non-existent periods, a couple rounds of clomid with no ovulation, etc.  I ended up taking metformin plus clomid which finally helped me to ovulate and then after 15 months of ttc finally conceived with clomid, metformin, hcg trigger and IUI.   Best of luck to you!
