Questions and Answers

While taking clomid, can a cyst develop and you be pregnant?

My ultrasound on cd 12 detected that I had already ovulated after my cd 5-9 days on clomid. The doc found a large cyst on my right ovary. She said that I should continue having sex but why if she claims I already ovulated? Why would I ovulate so early if my normal cycles are 30 days?

Ovulating that early on Clomid is very common. Clomid supercharges those follicles and when they mature faster… they’ll ovulate faster in some women. If you’re on Clomid, don’t even bother paying attention to your normal cycle numbers. Your taking medication that affects your whole reproductive system – which includes your menstrual cycle. It’s perfectly normal for the cycle to be off when you are taking additional medication.

If you’ve already ovulated then you need to have sex! The egg is sitting there waiting for some sperm. I’m sorry about your cyst. That is the big downside to Clomid. I hated that stuff even when I was on only 25mg.

Advice on taking Clomid?

I started taking Clomid last Friday on the 6th to the 10th Feb, We have had sex every day so far cause I don’t want to miss my chance of concieving, also while taking Clomid I am wanting sex every day, is that normal? Does anybody body know what would be the most fertile day be? plus is it ok to have sex evry day. can anybody help and more advice would be greatful. Also the other thing I wanted to know is when should you do a pregnancy test to see if you are or not?

Iam in the same boat. first round cycle day 7-11
your most fertile day will be 5 and 12 days after your LAST dose of clomid, so between yesterday the 10 and the 17th which is next week. Your going to ov sometime in there. If your hubby has a good count, then its okay to baby dance everyday.
thats what were doing.Your should do a preg test on the 35th day of your cycle.
Keep a lookout for eggwhite consistency cervical mucus. It should actually look just like eggwhites and be very stretchy. Some women dont get that though.
I suggest you try using OPKs
keep up the bd’ing everyday and you wont miss your ov.
Make sure your drinking lots and lots of water, bc it will help keep your cm more hospitable to sperm, which will help it live longer and go farther

Is there anybody out there that is just as confused about taking Clomid?

Is it ok for you and your parnter to have sex everyday, as he has antibodys in his sperm even though they are good? Is there anythink that can help improve your chances of getting pregnant while on the Clomid ? Even though you talk and get advice from Doctors, its nice to also hear from other people in the same boat. How long does it take for them to work if you are on 50mg. Do you Ovolate straight away or a few days later or what. any advice greatfully received.

you start them on about the fifth day of your period and you ovulate around the 12-18th day. take mucinex with it and your cervical mucus wont be so think, clomid normally makes you CM very think.. don’t get disappointed if it doesn’t work the first time it make take a couple of times..

I really messed up please help?

I’m on clomid day 3 and me and my husband had sex please tell me what can happen and if clomid is going to work for me this cycle.and why cant you have sex while taking clomid?

relax, don’t stress yourself out too much. you didn’t mess up! what’s important is that you don’t miss out on the days that you’re actually fertile ok?

but you better reserve your energies for your most fertile days. =) so try to delay your gratification a little bit for the best part. =)

good luck in ttc!!!

Advice on clomid and What they do?

Me and my husband have been trying for 3 years for a baby andwe finally got Clomid to try, is it ok for you to have sex every day if your Husand has good sperm count but antibodys? When do you ovolate on Clomid for example stright away or a few days late. When or do you do a pregnancy test to see if you are pregnany? What can my Husband do? How soon can you tell if you were or are pregnant while taking Clomid and how soon do they work. Can anybody give me advice. Please.

surely you did not just order this off the internet?!? if not then ask your dr these questions.

if you are not seeing a dr. and getting scanned before every clomid cycle you can develop a cyst that can cause you to lose an ovary if it entangles in your ovary.

Clomid clomid clomid?? please help?

i have pcos and im really considering clomid to help me conceive. how does the dr prescribe it (like give you all the pills you need for a month or 2?) do you have to go in for routine gyno check ups while taking clomid( to check if its working)? side effects? cost? (im pretty sure my insurance will cover $0) how can you tell clomid is working for you? will clomid make you mensturate? are you supposed to have sex on a certain time and day while on clomid? any info at all on clomid or other meds for pcos is really helpful and appreciated!! thanks sooo much! 🙂

Have you tried Metformin? It is a drug they often try first with PCOS women to see if that helps you ovulate on your own.

If you have…and you decide to go down the clomid road, my doctor prescribed clomid and asked me to chart my BBT’s and use OPK’s to see if I ovulated. Once I ovulated, I came in 7 days later and they checked my progesterone levels. That told them whether I ovulated and if it was a “good” ovulation (strong egg, I guess).

Side effects: bad pain in the ovary areas (both sides) as the eggs developed and as I released an egg. SUPREME b*tchiness!!! for a few days (think PMS on steroids) Delayed ovulation (about 7 days later than I normally ovulated)

Cost: don’t remember, but I don’t think it was all that much

When you use OPK’s, it’ll tell you when you are fertile, and that is when you are suppose to have sex. Any time during the day, but some will tell you to stay in that position for 20 minutes while you wait for the sperm to make it past your cervix, others will tell you that’s not necessary.

I did clomid for 4 months, and I ovulated the first three, but not the last. They told me I became “immune” to the clomid, and switched me to Femara. That worked for me, twice. I don’t have PCOS, but I was not always ovulating on my own.

Good luck!

What about clomid? should i try it?

When I was prescribed Clomid, I was given one month’s worth with two refills – so it was really 3 months worth, but only one month at a time.

The protocol will depend on the doctor, but when I first was prescribed Clomid, it was by my OB/GYN who did a cycle day 21 progesterone test on my first cycle to see if I ovulated on Clomid. The other two cycles were unmonitored. When I was subsequently referred to a reproductive endocrinologist, he did ultrasounds and bloodwork to monitor my follicles, the LH surge, and to see how thick my lining was.

I was diagnosed with unexplained infertility and all the monitoring was covered (in Canada). The Clomid was covered by my drug plan but it is very cheap – about $20 a cycle (on the lowest dose).

You know that Clomid is working by doing a cycle day 21 progesterone test to confirm ovulation. Alternatively, you can confirm ovulation if you chart your basal temperature (you will see a 0.5 – 1.0 deg F rise in temp after ovulation and no rise if there is no ovulation).

If you ovulate with Clomid, chances are you will see AF approx. 2 weeks after ovulation (if you have not conceived successfully).

Your most fertile time is the days leading up to and including the day of ovulation. Depending on when you take the Clomid, you should expect to ovulate approx. 5-10 days after your last pill. The instructions that came with my prescription said to have “relations” every other day starting on cycle day 10 right through cycle day 20. I temped during all my years of ttc and when on Clomid, I always ovulated on cycle day 16-18 with 33-35 day cycles.

The most prominent side effects of Clomid are mood swings (can be severe), headaches and hot flashes. Successive cycles of Clomid can result in a thinning uterine lining and drying up of the fertile cervical mucus, so after about 3 cycles, you really should be monitored closely because these things will actually inhibit successful conception.

Once you see your doctor, should he prescribe Clomid for you, he will explain everything to you in detail.

Good luck!
