Hey ladies I conceived my 2 year old June baby completely natural. Well now we've been ttc #2 for a year with no success. not myself, but 2 of my co-workers, who had been TTC for 3-5 years respectively. I was put on letrozole and conceived my June baby first time on that. I was just prescribed clomid 50 mg and 1000 mg metformin. Actually, it was my husband that gave me the reference to the Clomid, and I told my co-workers about it, so they got themselves prescriptions for it, the Clomid that is. Also, I have PCOS and metformin is often prescribed to women who have it. Even tho I am not diabetic it's supposed to help regulate my hormones some way. (among other things) and he tells that the Metformin have a nasty habit of (some technical stuff that I don't really understand) 'Retaining' so that it is contra-productive as far as 'loosing weight' is concerned. Tried that same med when going for a second child and got pregnant the first month. and less than 3 months later BOTH were Pregnant, and today have some beautiful 5yr pre-schoolers. I too am depressed I wanted our children to be no more than two years apart but at this rate if we are even successful they'll be 3-4 or more years apart. Which will then trigger ovulation because I don't ovulatethe Metformin is the de-facto Rx of choice when it comes to PCOS treatment. i myself had that condition, and was prescribed the very say (Metformin) advice to reduce my weight. That kiddo is now 7 months:) make sure your doctor follows up wth testing to make sure clomid is doing what it is supposed to because it doesn't always work I took Clomid once to conceive my June baby after trying for a year naturally. Myself, Clomid didn't do the trick (most likely because DH was Stationed overseas at the time), but once he was back, I got pregnant in my 2nd cycle, (NO Medical Assistance) with my today 25M old Danny.metformin is an other story, i thought it was 'Restrictive' usage in Hormone regulatory, but if that is what the MD prescribed, I would assume that it is what suits your circumstances best. Turns out I have pcos that no one caught because my periods appear to be regular. Tried for 9 months naturally but just knew it wouldn't happen (many things were just off). i tried naturally for 10 years to get pregnant and never did I got married and we tried Clomid to my surprise I got pregnant within 2 months on 50 mg first month then 100 mg second month and we had a little boy.. Started metformin, vitex, and progesterone suppositories last October and got pregnant in December. Now we have been trying for a year since he was 1 , on and off of clomid and no luck , I'm super depressed cause I wanted them back to back or a year apart , but any how this month is the first time I boosted my does to 150 mg so let's see fingers crossed that this month it happens. Metformin helps to reduce your testosterone and is great to take with Clomid. I Had to keep taking metformin until I was 12 wks to reduce risk of miscarriage. Clomid is the brand name of clomifene citrate, a commonly used drug used to treat female fertility problems. Clomid blocks the effects of oestrogen on the body, which then causes your body to increase the production of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinising hormone (LH). FSH prepares the eggs in your ovaries for release, and LH triggers the release of one or more mature eggs from your ovaries. Clomid stimulates egg release in around 70% of users. It is thought that up to 20% of pregnancies conceived with the help of Clomid end in miscarriage, but this is a similar rate to those conceived with no help. Clomid is taken orally for five days early in your menstrual cycle. Most women start by taking a low dose of 50mg, this may then be increased in the future. You can take Clomid for up to six menstrual cycles at a time.
Clomid is an ovulatory stimulating drug used to help women who have problems with ovulation. Because Clomid can be prescribed by a gynecologist and doesn't require a fertility specialist, it's also the very first fertility treatment tried for most couples. If a woman has irregular cycles, or anovulatory cycles (menstruation without ovulation), Clomid may be tried first. Clomid is often used in treating polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) related infertility It may also be used in cases of unexplained infertility or when a couple prefers not to use the more expensive and invasive fertility treatments. (However, it's important to remember that the more expensive treatment is sometimes the most appropriate.) When comparing women who took Clomid with women who received either a placebo or no treatment, researchers found that there was no improvement in pregnancy rates, even when Clomid was coupled with IUI treatment. (IUI is insemination.) It’s not unheard of for a woman to lie to her doctor to get Clomid, thinking it will help her conceive faster. Not only will it likely not help her get pregnant faster, but now she’s at risk for experiencing side effects. (Some of those side effects You should follow the directions your doctor gives you. With that said, the most common dosage of Clomid is 50 mg taken for five days, on Days 3 through 7 of your cycle. Clomid's primary purpose is to induce ovulation in women who are either not ovulating or ovulating irregularly. Between 70 and 80 percent of women taking Clomid will ovulate during their first treatment cycle. Your chances of getting pregnant over several cycles is approximately 35 percent. If you don't conceive after six months, it's time to move onto another treatment. Depending on which research studies you reference, the odds of conceiving during any one Clomid treatment cycle are between seven and 30 percent. The effectiveness of Clomid varies depending on the cause of infertility. Another study, this one from Scottland, looked at success rates for couples diagnosed with unexplained infertility. Couples were randomly assigned to one of three groups: "expectant management," treatment with just Clomid, or Clomid with IUI.
My Gyno wants me to try Metformin 2000mg and clomid 150mg next wanted to know if clomid 150mg worked for you after failed. I am taking 150 mg clomid starting on Dec. 23 as that is when my cycle should start. otherwise I will have to wait until it does again. Anyway, I.
