Hi,
I just wanted to share my Clomid story so far. I ended up going to a gynotologits for my ovarian cysts and had told her that I had been ttc for almost 2 years. I also had been using a digital ovulation predictor for the past 3 months and even with a positive smile, your ovulating. No pregnancy.
She told me I had a pulp in uterus, set me up for an MRI and put in a referral to a fertility clinic.
It was the best decisions. They set my husband and I up for testing right away. I had my MRI, Sonohysterogram and hysterosalpingogram done. Turns out that aside from the pulp in my uterus and a cyst....both of my tubes were blocked. One let the fluid in but nothing out and the other was blocked from the start. Most likely from the surgical removal of the appendix I had done in high school. The doc had thought it was unhealthy and I had to sign consent for removal.
So I had my operation to have everything done at once. I was so happy read a note in the recovery room that they removed the pulp and they were able to successful unlock both fallopian tubes. I did find out I have sever endometriosis.
After my recovery I went back to the fertility clinic to discuss options. Even though I do ovulate on my own each month the doc wanted to take an aggressive approach. Since I had been trying for so long she immediately went over the treatment option.
I'm on Clomid 50 starting on day 3 of my cycle. I have the cycle monitoring. I strongly recommended it because with the ultrasounds and blood tests you are really prepared. If your not doing IUI they will instruct you to begin having daily intercourse and when needed give you the medication that will cause you to release your egg in a timely manner.
I got the ok to start Clomid on day 3 of my cycle. I went for my monitoring on day 10 and the nurse was in shock. She said I had alot of follicles and wanted me to wait to speak to the doc after saying we don't want you to have 5 babies!
Turns out my body is very sensitive to Clomid. So much that they want me to take half the dose so 25. I had 4 on my right side and 1 on the left. She said they wanted me to come in the next morning for another ultrasound and blood work. They wanted to see if the 5th would mature like the others and warned me if it did, they would tell me to skip the cycle and not continue with the timed intercourse.
I went a day later and found out that not only had the 4 grown in 24hrs but the side that had 4 now have 5 mature and the other side with the one had stayed the same.
My normal doc had told me yesterday, it is not encouraged but would be my decision if I wanted to still continue with natural intercourse. She warned me that the doc I would see today would tell me to cancel that plan if I had 5 mature the next day.
She told me I would ovulate today or tomorrow and not to have intercourse. Since I already had she told me not to stress out and that if I had a positive test at the end of the month she would Schedule and early ultrasound.
I don't know if anyone has had similar experience?.
I did struggle with the decision of whether to continue with intercourse or skip this cycle. I am a twin myself and my husband has twins on his side also. I know all about the increased risk of multiples, but decided to contiue with the cycle.
This Journey has been a long and at times a hard one but I know it will all be worth it in the end.
I am Very Fortunate to have 0 side effects from the Clomid. I have read some people have not so great reactions to it.
Fortunately it wont be a long wait to see how this cycle does turn out. It is out of my hands but I will continue to hope and pray.
To everyone still trying on Clomid don't give up and if you can try cycle monitoring through a fertility clinic. I strongly recommended it.

saswati- Are you doing clomid with IUI or intercource?.
Clomid causes twin pregnancies about 10% of the time, with less than 1% of Clomid pregnancies leading to triplets or higher order pregnancies.Clomid does increase your chances of having twins, but not as much as you might think. You have about an 8 percent chance of conceiving twins while taking Clomid.
Wait to see how many follicles you makes. You never know you might just end up with twins. I've read alot of post on fertility sites with others who have.
Good luck :)

Hi, I was on clomid on cd3-cd7. On cd11, I did an u/s and it showed 2 19mm follicle on my right ovary & my lining were ard 12mm.
Dr adv to bd on cd11 till cd12. He prescribed utrogestan100 to be taken on cd13 2x a day for a period of 5 days.
I would love to find out the possibility that both follicle ruptured and release eggs during ovulation.
And btw, aft I finished my cd7 on clomid, I took robitussin, epo soft gel & bb asprin. Folic were taken orally from cd1.I also use preseed prior to bd.
I'm currently experiencing cramps ard my right ovary area (on cd13).
Any advise would be great!
