3rd round of Clomid & Progesterone


#1

[SIZE=“4”][FONT=“Comic Sans MS”]Hello Ladies,

This is my first time here in this website and hope to meet great people that can help me with this stressful adventure. This is my 3rd round with medications and so far i haven’t got lucky; well I’m waiting for my results from my 3rd round. Next week i should know if I’m or not. :pray:

I’m 36 years old and been trying for 3 years (naturally) to get pregnant and no luck so this February i started the meds. The side effects haven’t been very nice to me; I gain 10lbs!!! in 3 months :grr: I’m very sleepy when I take the meds and also very extra lazy lol i suffer from nausea’s confusing me so bad wondering if I’m or not pregnant! and last my period went from 28 to 30-35 days.

Me and my husband are fine so far with all the test we took…if i don’t get pregnant this month the next step is Artificial Insemination.

Are you on your 3rd round? how is the meds treating you?

Thanks for reading this and taking your time to reply.

Hi Kitty,

I’m on my third round of medication too. My clomid dose is at 100mg,
and the side effects were not so kind this round. I was having hot flashes one minute and extreme chills the next. Was extremely hungry all the time and sleepy too. The nausea didn’t start until this week.

I’ve got one week left of my tww. :cross: I really don’t want tosee :af: hoping this is our round. If not we’re trying one more round of clomid & trigger with TI, then moving on to iui.

GL to you
:babydust:

:welcome:

I will start clomid 50mg tonight (CD3). I also get trigger injections thus far both cycles on CD11. Both rounds I have been tired, a little moody and REALLY hungry. The 1st cycle though I had pretty severe cramping (not so much this last go-round.

:pray: for :bfp: for everyone this month.

This 3rd round i feel more nausea then the other two months. I normally feel nausea when I’m about to receive AF and last only for one or two days. But this month i been having nausea for 5-6 days. I don’t get excited as Progesterone gives pregnancy symptoms.

I go every month to get my ultra sound to check my ovulation/eggs; but this month i ovulated early! even the Dr. was surprise. I went on the 15th and i though he would say have sex and more sex by the weekend lol and find out i was ovulating the next day! all i can do now is :pray:

I’m glad we can share our experiences :clap:

I will update you guys with any new symptoms so far no cramping and my period is due this Friday the 3rd.

and ladies sending some baby dust. :babydust:

Will use this thread as my updates till i get the big :bfp:

wishing you ladies lots of lucks for this round :bsv:

Hi Ladies,

Just updating since my af was due yesterday and still no signs and BFN. Also had my hcg levels checked at CD 28. I’m so stressed out since it’s at a 5.9. RE said its very low and can be residual from the trigger, so I have to go back in tomorrow to get it checked again. Guess we’ll wait and see what the levels are and if AF shows up.

Thank you Mariloc

I just started my clomid today and i have my ultra sound on 15th of May (making it my 13th day) just to check how mature are my eggs and for my Dr. to have an idea when I will ovulate.

Hope everything is going well with you and once again sending lots of :babydust: :babydust:


#10

Well my second hcg came back below 5, dr said its a definite.:bfn: and that its residual from the trigger, but still have go back in for another check just to make sure it’s completely gone. I’m still wondering where my af is? Hopefully she shows up so we can decide our next step. Might have to sit May out since our next RE visit won’t be til mid May. Maybe we’ll try a natural cycle just to give m body a little break…

I’m sorry to hear that mariloc,

I totally understand you and feel you. This month for some reason hit me harder not getting pregnant. My husband don’t want to do insemination this month either :frowning: so we are just doing meds again only. I’m putting my body in so much craziness; gaining so much weight, sleepy every day after work, laziness. People at work at looking at me now funny on why im getting so fat lol and sad to say i don’t have control of that is all because of the meds.

Please keep in touch and sending lots of :babydust: ur way for this month…

Hi ladies! I found taking the meds at night helped me sleep so I wasn’t droggy during the day. Also, you should do clomid more than twice ESP not the same dose. Are you seeing a RE. My obgyn kept me on clomid for a while and the RE freaked. I can’t remember why bit ask lots of questions. Knowledge is power! :babydust: to all.

Not sure I’ve seen anyone given 6 pills. Usually its 5 pills 50 mg each for 5 day and 10 pills twice a day for 100 mg dose. I’m guessi it’s a mistake, but I’d ask your doctor just to be sure. With clomid it doesn’t increase the odds of ovulating, it just helps the follicles mature and increase the odds of you actually producing an egg. If ovulation is your trouble area like me, yoi should ask your dr about getting trigger shot. That wil most likely make you ovulate. Hopes this helps!

Hello mothersoon,

I’m given 10 by my Dr. never less or more. hope you found out if they give you 6 by mistake?


#16

I went to to see my Dr. on Wed for an ultra sound to check out my eggs :slight_smile: and he found 3 mature eggs! yay! he said this cycle is one of the best ones I had so far. So he decided to give me also an HCG trigger shot! (i took the shot today Friday) Is my first time using this shot. My ovulation is due this Saturday and Sunday night i start taking my progesterone pills.

Let see what this cycle brings… :pray:

3rd round of clomid, need estrogen and progesterone as well as a heaping dose of supp

I’m new to this site and was hoping to find others who are going through a similar situation. DH and I have been trying to conceive for almost 2 years now. I have irregular cycles, always did. Went on BC for 6 years and when i went off BC to get pregnant I could not get a cycle to come around on its own. we tried to get pregnant on our own for a year and half before I went to the Dr. Dr then put me on provera. Did 2 cycles of 50mg clomid and nothing. Hoping that 100 mg along with added estrogen and progestrone will do the trick!


#18

^did you ovulate on clomid? are you being monitored with bloodwork and ultrasounds?


#19

Have no idea…

I am currently just seeing my OBGYN. We don’t have the money for a specialist right now which is why things aren’t really being “monitored” or triggered per say. I had blood work done and HCG tested a year ago and all came back normal (even then I had good levels of HCG) which is why they said to keep trying there’s signs I ovulated. Also had an ultra sound to check for cysts or anything abnormal internally and they couldn’t find a thing wrong. I went to a new OBGYN this year and he did tests that revealed I had lo pregesterone and a lack of estrogen. I just went for a hcg test this past friday to test if I have a good level now or not. I have not had a HSG done but DR says that after this month that will be the next step. I know I should have had the HSG done last year but have had major anxiety over it and just a bad feeling in general about doing it. So that’s why i’ve been putting it off for so long. praying I will get a :bfp: before it comes to that!!

Hi Ladies,

I just wanted to update you on what’s going on; as i explain on my last comment my Dr. found 3 follicles, two in one side and one in another side…very mature and he even gave me a trigger shot. On what should of been my implantation I got sick, started with a sore throat and then became like a flu and a cough and last fever!! i had to take meds as i felt so sick. I wonder if all those meds affected my implantation? I’m in the waiting game now to see if I’m :preg: or not…:pray:

will keep posted.
