Well it looks like Clomid has completely failed me. My LP has been 9 days long for the past few months, but its looking more and more like this month I only had a 6 day LP since I am convinced that today is CD1. I find this incredibly depressing. I was taking Clomid in hopes that it would lengthen my LP.

Sourire: have you tried progesterone creams? Or perhaps you can suggest to your Dr that you need progesterone. It can lengthen your LP. :( Sorry your feeling frustrated. This TTC thing can be no fun.
Just wanted to come by and say HELLO! Me and DH are TTC#3.I havent had a period in 2 months which is not normal for me but after being on BC for so long I guess that could happen. I started Clomid today in hopes it would force SOMETHING to happen. My Dr suggested this instead of other drugs becasue it may kill two birds with one stone (make me ovulate and cause an end to this ridiculously looong cycle. So hopefully this works.
Just a little history, DH and I have been together for almost 7 years. We have 2 DD's, 2 and 4 years old. We experienced 2 miscarriages before DD1 came. I had short LP and just could not get pregnant after the second miscarriage. I got on the pill and then abruptly discontinued it and WHAM prego with DD1, same situation with DD2, missed a pill and got pg. So it looks like for some reason that worked for me then, but not this time.
Anyway, nice to be here and have some people who understand.
I have a friend who is taking an increased dose of Clomid (I think this is her second month of taking Clomid, but I am not sure). She is having bilateral pain that she thinks is in her ovaries (she pointed about four inches out horizontally from her belly button, or something like that). She said it is bad enough that she has trouble lifting small kiddies or even being touched in that area. She is not on MDC yet, so I thought I'd ask for her. Any ideas, folks? Thanks!
Will do...is a higher dose related to cysts bursting somehow? Thanks for your response!
Kaydove - I have seen you over on the May thread and I just couldn't not post and offer my congratulations to you!!! Sending you lots of sticky/healthy vibes!!! What a great gift as your other due date approaches!!! That tree will really even have more meaning now w/ a little celebration for new life in more than one way!!!! Good luck!!
Kaydove! YAY! not that I have been here long but AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!! Sticky baby dust to you... H&H 38-42 weeks. :)
Sourire- yeah that is scary to be alone with the clomid yuckies. Hope your resting comfortably.
So AF showed. Very lightly for 2 ish days. Today I had very light orangey spotting with EWCMand 3 inch stretch, I was pretty shocked since it is technically CD 3, took an OPK and it was darjer than last night but still lighter than the control. So it finally started, never been so happy to see the hag. So I stopped the Clomid and restarted today on day 3. We are most likely going to be attempting the Shettles method since we want a boy BADLY. DH and I ordered IC's OPK's and HPT's today. Im going to keep taking the OPK's since I have no idea when i'll O. I am temping too. So I think we should get a pretty clear picture of what is going on. Im just hoping I actually O.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend!
nan- hmmmm orange af huh?! never heard of it but i hope i dont have a chance to look out for it. ;) glad you coudl start a new cycle though.
try ingender.com as well for some gender selection tips. :)
sourire- make sure you have a phone number for someone close by when you go on your trip, even if its just the front desk in case the symptoms get worse...i remember how scary they were for you last time on 50 mg. hope you body has adjusted and you wont have to worry about it this time.
afm- i have been charting and taking opk's for a combined 2 years (2 kids and this little adventure im on now) and i have never seen an opk as dark as the one i took yesterday.....guess i got a good LH surge! haha!!!
Congrats on the LH surge vivica!
I have taken 2 doses of Clomid 100mg so far and... no side effects at all! Maybe my body is already used to it... I remember that my side effects were much milder the last 2 days I was taking Clomid last month. I just hope my "no side effects" run this month includes me not becoming a psycho a few days after I finish the treatments.
Congrats on the Clomid success stories!!!
Can I join the bunch?! I won't actually be starting Clomid for a few weeks, but I'm trying to learn as much as I can as the next cycle approaches. I ovulate, but I have very short LPs and some crazy cycles--25 days, 35 days...
Is anyone here concerned at all about conceiving multiples from this experience? Where I already ovulate I wonder if I'm at higher "risk?"
Really looking forward to sharing in this experience with all of you!!
beccabus- i was ovulating anywhere from cd18-cd30 and my second round of clomid i ovulated cd 16!!! its so...normal! haha
i ovulate regularly but am tyaking the clomid do move up my ovulation date and lengthen my LP. it worked for the former, not the latter. ;)
good luck to you!
afm-hers the chart....im super sad, but not suprised *sigh* http://www.fertilityfriend.com/ttc/homepage_module.php super light positive followed by a neg this morning. 8 dpo..ill test again if af doesnt show but thursday. ( regular 10 day lp)
