Unexplained IF used Clomid w #1, now TTC #2

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

We were unable to conceive for two years with unexplained infertility.  I spent a lot of time trying remedies: started eating meat, thyroid medications, all the herbs (maca, vitex, etc), acupuncture and finally conceived on our first round of using Clomid.  Now our daughter is 1.5, and I am about to turn 35 and we just started TTC again.  I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions about if we should wait and try naturally for six months or so first, or just go straight to the Clomid since I am older now and that is what worked last time.  TIA.  Wishing everyone a BFP this fall!

Hi- congrats on your first! I have a friend w/ PCOS that struggled for a long time and finally needed Clomid for first pregnancy...then a year later by surprise she turned up pregnant naturally. She is a Pediatrician, and she said there is something about your body doing it once that kind of resets itself and you can sometimes conceive naturally afterward. I just wanted to share that with you.

But if I were you and just had the one baby, at 35...I might give it a year naturally but I wouldn't waste much time. I think I might just go back to the Clomid since it worked. Especially if you really want a sibling for your baby.

Take care! GL!
