I'm currently on my third round of Clomid and looking for some hope. I'm just wondering if anyone in this forum was successful on Clomid. If so, how many cycles did it take and were you undergoing any other treatments or on any other meds in addition to the Clomid? Any stories are greatly appreciated!!!!

I conceived my second child with clomid. I had 3 failed rounds, then took a couple of months off and saw a new doc. The 4th round was successful. I have pcos and was also taking metformin. My successful clomid round came after a big increase in my met dosage.

I hope you find success with this round!

Mayflowers, I hope you get that +. My first baby was conceived during my first round of clomid. I have a luteal phase defect and possibly some endometriosis as well (never had a exploratory lap done), so I did have to to take progesterone in the first tri too. Weirdly enough baby #2 was concieved easily w/o clomid (but I still needed progesterone). Now I am pg with baby #3, no clomid AND no progesterone (boy was I surprised). My ob said that for some women, after they get some, "help" getting pg with baby #1, things tend to work themselves out for later pregnancies. I hope that this third round is IT for you.

I used clomid for baby #3 and it worked on the 2nd round on 50mg. I just got a BFP on my 1st cycle TTC without the use of any meds! I think clomid got things going or something. GL!!! I hope you get a BFP very soon.

I have pcos. I conceived on my first round of clomid (50mg). I had been taking metformin for a year & had also lost 70lbs, which was helping bring my cycles around. I had a trigger shot with the clomid.

Surviving sleep deprivation one day at a time with dd (Oct '11) & ds (Oct '08).

I conceived on my first round of clomid (100mg) with no other meds. My first RE prescribed I think 6 medications and wanted to do an IUI, but I switched to a more low intervention dr. I ovulated on cd30 after an ultrasound showed it was a failed cycle. I actually had a temp shift the exact day I was supposed to start progesterone for a new cycle. The dr didn't believe me.

An acquaintance of mine conceived two of her three children on Clomid (first time both times). I conceived this baby on my fourth round of Femara, which is a different drug that induces ovulation. I was also having IUI's though I'm not sure that was necessary.

I conceived DD on Clomid. I can't remember how many rounds we did. It didn't take long though. Maybe conception was on round 3.

Normal is just a setting on your dryer.

I went through several rounds of clomid many years ago and got nothing. This time around I'm in a much better place hormonally. I also have PCOS and after taking metformin and synthroid for a few years I started having regular cycles for the first time in my life. My DH has some issues too so on my 4th round of clomid and my third IUI it worked. I'm almost 8 weeks along. Good luck!

I was conceived the month after my parents stopped their 18 months of Clomid... I guess back in the 70s it wasn't uncommon to be on Clomid for years at a time.
