Trouble TTC

Go Go Gadget Clomid!

Just wanted to thank this board for telling me about your Clomid experiences at the beginning of this week.  I'm the kind of person who doesn't even take Tylenol when I have a headache.  I decided to go ahead and start 100mg last night, then 100mg tonight, and 50mg after that (as directed).  Your comments, tips, and stories made me feel 100% better about taking it and knowing what to expect.

I go to the RE for a check up in a week. FX!

  • MissMusic,

     Can you post a link to that thread?  I tried to find it, but could not.  I am in the same boat at the moment.  Metformin isn't helping me Ovulate.  I also don't take tylenol for ANYTHING, I get my cavities filled with no medication, etc.  I'm hesitant to go further, but so ready for a child.  Thanks! 

     I hope your journey ends in a BFP soon!

    Thanks!  Yeah the last time I went in, the nurse said I was looking A-OK, but then the RE called and said that in actuality, I had 1 follicle and it was on the small side.  Hopefully I'll have at least 1 viable follicle!  I actually feel very upbeat so FX.

    I havent been on TB in a while, but I saw your post and wanted to give you my thoughts on Clomid. I took two cycles of 50mg, a cycle of 100mg and then went to an RE and took two days of 200mg. I had a really bad reaction to the clomid. I had double vision REALLY bad! It felt like everything around me was tracking in fives, especailly in the dark. Not to say that you'll get it, but just be aware its possible, especially at a higher dose. I did get the vision problems with the 100mg, but didnt think anything of it and at the 200mg, it was scary. SO, if you get any kind of vison change, stop taking it and call your Dr. immediately. Best of luck with everything and I hope you get your BFP!!!

  • I"m taking 100mg right now and have had no side effects at all, except for a heavier period and cramps. I'm also pretty hesitant to move forward with medications, but I felt like we have been trying on our own for long enough and it's time to move forward. GL and keep us updated on your progress!
