Load of baby dust to all of us TTC multiples!! Welcome Active Popular Browse. You take clomiphene for 5 days usually cycle days but you can start taking clomiphene as early as cycle day 2. If you think you have a medical emergency, call your doctor or emergency services immediately. I figured I might as well give it a shot. As you've gotten pregnant easily both times, you likely won't and if after 6 months or so you feel like you do need some help, at least you know it's always there. If you take Clomid and your menstrual period has not come when you expected, then do a pregnancy test.
Posted Monday 30 January You should go and see your GP - and a counsellor. It is a dangerous drug that u need to b monitored on very closely. Just because u have had 2 c-sections in the past doesn't mean that u only have 1 more chance. TTC is patients, just because u once use to fall easy doesn't mean that very time is going to b like that, other factors may get in the way such as stress, hormone imbalance ect ect.
It is impossible to release a life time of eggs in my cycle, nd the pains u r experience is o[left]ver stimulation nd is a clear reason y u dnt unprescribed drugs. Taking any drug unprescribed is a very risky thing to do. You wouldn't take unprescribed heart medication or liver medication, would you? Taking something you don't need can have serious long term effects on your body. I also had 2 miscarriages last year, and yes, it was extremely difficult to go through, but I never considered taking fertility drugs that were not prescribed to me!
I just kept on trying and after 11 months, I am now pregnant with a healthy little bub. You definitely need to go to see your doctor as soon as possible and confess what you have done. Be prepared for your doctor to be extremely unimpressed with you. I hope he is able to help you. Many many women on here have suffered MC's, I for 1 have. How about counting ur blessing that u already have to healthy girls.
I realise the desire for another but let nature do its thing considering u dnt have problems with fertility. There is other things that u can take that r NATURAL to help TTC nd if u have been on this forum then u would have seen my vitamin combo but also other things that ladies have suggested. It really makes me cross that ppl take unprescribed clomid not only for the dangers of it, but also they have no idea the heart nd pain that someone with "real" fertility problems have to go through nd the 1st step is clomid, do u think they want to b on it with all the side effects ect, so u think they dnt want to b able to have a baby the natural way so-to-speak, yet ppl like u take it cause they dnt have the patients to let it happen natural nd they want to increase there chances to have twins, oh please really U c the ladies that take clomid or any other fertility drug for that matter r hoping just to conceive 1 little miracle nd to b blessed there certainly not taking the drug for more.
If u have resorted to these kind of measures then I think u really need to take a long hard look at ur TTC journey nd c how much it is effecting ur life, ur mental nd emotional state nd re access ur situation. I have used clomid and yes I had twins BUT I had mOnths of struggling to fall pregnant and after doctors visits and ultrasounds and blood tests and traveling a fair distance to a fertility specialist I was prescribed it as I did not ovulate on my own.
The goal of treatment with Clomid is to normalize or induce ovulation by taking a 50 mg dose per day on days 3 through 7 of the menstrual cycle. Eighty percent of women taking Clomid will successfully ovulate and 10 to 12 percent will conceive per cycle. There is no evidence that shows increasing the dosage of Clomid will result in an increase in pregnancy rates. Increased dosages of Clomid may actually worsen the side effects. Another factor that limits the success of Clomid is that many people have other unknown infertility factors.
A previous study showed that 87 percent of women who ovulated but failed to conceive with Clomid had an additional cause of infertility such as pelvic lesions, tubal disease, endometriosis, male factor infertility, or a combination of these factors. Diagnostic testing such as a hysterosalpingogram HSG , semen analysis, and ultrasound should be performed prior to Clomid treatment to rule out other fertility factors. Your physician may recommend you combine Clomid with intrauterine insemination IUI if Clomid alone does not result in a pregnancy.
There are several factors that may influence how many cycles of Clomid you should attempt before moving on to a more advanced line of treatment under the care of a reproductive endocrinologist. Patients with polycystic ovary syndrome PCOS , anovulation, or irregular periods taking Clomid without ultrasound monitoring:. We take a stepped-approach to treatment, starting with the simplest, most affordable treatment options first and move up to more advanced treatments only if needed.
When thinking about moving on to another form of treatment, it is important to consider how many cycles you have attempted, your age, and the guidance from your physician based on data-driven decisions. In addition to evaluating the medical recommendations, we understand the emotional and financial aspects of infertility can weigh heavily on the decision to begin treatment or move to a new level of care.

I have irregular periods, took 10mg of provera and on the 3rd got my period.
I started on clomid on cycle day 3. How long must I wait to see if clomid worked? Clomid worked for me. I had no complications with my pregnancy. It can throw your body into hypothalamic amenorrhea which is not an easy thing to treat. But I have read some doctors suggest to take them between the days 3 to 7 of period cycle. I hope this is helpful. Shady Grove keeps their BMI requirements super low so they publish better results.
