I've been lurking here for, oh, probably the last 5 or 6 months. It feels weird to just now be "coming out" and asking questions. I have a quick Clomid question, but I'll give you a brief background after (because it's kind of long, so feel free to just read the question and skip the rest if that's not your thing!)
My period ended on CD3 like usual. CD4 was my 2nd pill on my first Clomid round and DH and I had sex. Afertwards, I stared spotting/light flow that was bright red - like blood that you'd see if you cut yourself, not period blood. I double checked and it was definitely internal. Anyone else experience this or know if it's a normal side effect? I plan on calling my RE in the morning, but thought I'd ask your opinions.
We started "not preventing" right after our wedding in October 2008. I was, of course, sure we'd have no problem getting pregnant because I'm healthy and take care of myself ('cause that's how it works, right? Riiiight.) We weren't in a hurry to get pregnant, but it would be a happy surprise if it worked out.
Fast forward to summer of 2010 and we both started getting baby fever BAD. Especially after a couple of longer cycles in which I was SURE that we had success. Once we realized how crushed we both were with the BFN's is when we really started trying.
So, Aug/Sept 2010 I started lurking TTGP and bought TCOYF, a BBT, OPK's and signed up for fertility friend. October 2010 was our first month pulling out all the stops - BBT, OPK's, monitoring CM & CP, preseed, etc.
We got pregnant in January on a cycle where I was sure we were out, but it ended up being an ectopic and I lost my right tube in surgery (all the dates/stats are in my sig.) We were instructed to take a cycle off before trying again. My ob/gyn did an HSG on my left tube and it looked clear & healthy, so she was confident we'd quickly get pregnant again. We didn't, and she wanted us to try "her way" of not temping and just doing OPK's for 4 more months. Sooo, I got in with an RE in September. Love her.
My HSG, blood work and u/s all look good. DH's sperm count was "good." 297 million, 80% motility, but 0% morph. She wasn't as concerned with it because the count & motility were good and she said that their lab grades morph very strict. Also, he was able to get me pregnant once, so, she wasn't too worried about it.
Dx is that I don't ovulate from my left ovary. Ever. I got pregnant on my right side and lost that tube, so that explains the issue with not get pregnant since. We started 50mg Clomid CD 3-7 + Ovidrel. Today's day 3 of clomid and, so far, not bad. Hot flashes, mild headaches and emotional are what I'm dealing with. I'll take it.
Thanks for all that you ladies post here - I've learned so much in the past several months of lurking! Hoping I can give back more than I take.
