I'm a MDC regular (with a new username for privacy from IRL friends that know me on MDC - people are so judgmental! and I'm entering a new phase in ttc.
I'm 22y/o with a long history of 30 day cycles and clear ovulation signs. DH and I are working on #1 after losing our first at 8 weeks gestation 4 months ago. I had a D&C in December and didn't get a period for 12 weeks until I induced with Prometrium. I'm 6 weeks into the new cycle (since the induced period) and anovulatory and no sign of AF coming any time soon. For a variety of reasons, I'm in a hurry to conceive. Mainly, next fall I'll be starting a rigorous doctoral program that is unforgiving for time off and I want to have as much time at home with our baby as possible.
My doctor offered to induce another period and also offered me Clomid pending TSH results, since I'm not ovulating on my own. The Rx states 50mg for 5 days starting CD3. I'll be starting the prometrium this Tuesday and should get my period ~13 days later. (grrr, another delay!!)
So, according to my research, being <30y/o, post miscarriage, starting clomid CD3, and (normally) spontaneously ovulating all increase my risk of twins. Is this true? My husband is thrilled. Before we went in for the u/s that showed our first baby was gone, my husband was betting me money we'd find twins (poor guy, only one and it was gone...) so needless to say the word "Clomid" got him really excited. I haven't mentioned the other risk factors to him (I don't want to get his hopes up...). I'd be thrilled (albeit a little overwhelmed, I'd delay the start of grad school with twins, for sure) but I'm just wondering how "prepared" I should be.
Anyone else in my shoes? Everything I find for clomid is for people with PCOS and/or age 35+, and I'm neither, so I'm feeling a bit lonely.
Any general clomid (esp post miscarriage stuff) advice is very very welcome. Is there a "Clomid Thread?"
