Clomid Success Stories Please !!!

Hi everyone ! I hope it's ok to post here. I am about to start 100mg Clomid as soon as AF shows, CD 3 to 7, for 4 months. I am 31 and DH 33. We have had all the tests done, DH SA is fine. I had HSG, tubes open and clear. Bloodwork good but not great. Had an interal U/S to check follies and only had 1 and it was much smaller then it should have been. We have been ttc for 14 lonnnnggggg years now, managed to FINALLY get a BFP on our own after 12 years but ended in miscarriage at 8 weeks. I'm just looking for some hope from the ladies on here who have had success with Clomid ! What dosage were you on, how long have you been trying before your BFP and how many rounds you had to take before you got your BFP ? Thank you in advance for any and all Clomid stories !

Re: Clomid Success Stories Please !!!

  • My son is a Clomid baby!

    First round, 50 mg, cd 5-9 with timed intercourse. Before that, we tried on our own for a year. 

    TTC#1=Feb 2009: 50 mg Clomid+Ovidrel shot+Metformin+Dexamethasone+TI=BFP!

    TTC#2=July 2011: Surprise BFP: Chemical Pregnancy
  • My son is also a clomid baby.

    1st rd: 50 mg - no O

    2nd rd: 100 mg - no O

    3rd rd: 150mg and 2mg dexamethasone - O- BFP - m/c at 5 weeks

    4th rd: 150 mg and 2mg dex, trigger - O - BFP - m/c at  8 weeks

    6th rd: 200 mg and 2mg dex - O - BFP = Matthew born 7.27.10!

    Plus I took baby aspirin, metformin, and prometrium after O.  All in all - we tried for almost a year before seeking help.  Then those 6 rounds took a year to get through because each cycle would take at least 2 months, plus after the m/c's I would take a month of BCP to give myself a break.  Then after the 3rd m/c we did the HSG, genetic testing, etc so that took a couple of months. 

    We are thinking of TTC 2 this summer so I think I'm gonna try Femara this time. 

    Clomid obviously works - just gotta find the right "cocktail" for your body!!  Good luck!!

  • Thank you ladies for your stories ! It really gives me hope !!!!!!!!!

    Please keep the stories coming, i absolutely love reading them, each and every one gives me more and more hope and that's what i desperately need right now !!!!

    I forgot to mention, as well as taking the 100mg of Clomid, i'm also going to use Preseed and a baby aspirin daily. I'm also going to get DH to take a Pro Mens vitamin, 1 tablespoon of honey and 1 cinnamon capsule daily as well. I hope with all this stuff it will lead me to a quick, sticky BFP !

    Baby dust to everyone who is still trying !

  • Not me, but my best friend...she had 2 chemical pregnancies/miscarriages on her own. She took clomid and on first round she got PG and is now 22 weeks.

     Another very good friend, tried for a year, nothing happened, did 2 rounds of clomid and got pregnant on round 2. Good luck to you!

  • Hi Mellissa,

    Good Luck! My son was clomid and 3rd round IUI. We got PG on Clomid before without IUI on 50mg also however that resulted in a loss. Good Luck!!!

  • Both DD and my current pregnancy are the result of using 100mg Clomid.  DH is fine, but I have stage II endo and DOR.  Before DD I had one ectopic pregnancy and one early m/c (both were conceived using only acupuncture and herbs, no meds).

    I conceived DD on our fourth round of 100mg Clomid, days 2-6 with TI (no trigger).  At that point we had been TTC for almost four years.

    For #2 I did 100mg again, this time days 3-7 and we did IUI (again, no trigger).  We were TTC for six months total, and finally got pregnant on our third cycle of meds.

    Best of luck to you!

  • I'm sorry, I am not trying to be snarky, but you started TTC at 17??  Just wondering...

  • My DD was from 100mg Clomid + Metformin.  I also got pregnant one other time with the same combo but that ended up being ectopic.  Also, I was a clomid baby for my mom.

  • hi!
    i just got a bfp after my 2nd clomid/iui cycle (got the bfp 14dpiui)

    i don't ovulate regularly and my cycles are oh so very irregular....and dh has low motility...we were trying on our own for about a year, then we went to an re last may...turns out i had an underactive thyroid, so about feb this year it was finally at the right level, and our finances were settled, so we decided to start treatments...

    i was on 100mg of clomid cd 5-9 with an ovridrel shot....on cd11 i had to go in for them to check the size of my follicles...first time around they weren't big enough, so probably on cd18 i had the ovridrel shot and then iui the next day....for our 2nd iui cycle...i had the same clomid same days, but i had the ovridrel shot on cd 15 with the iui the next day

     good luck!

  • DS is a clomid baby.    We had unexplained IF, tried for 2 years with no luck.  The 2nd round of clomid worked for us. I think it was 50mg on days 3 to 7.

  • DS is a result of clomid and timed intercourse. We tried for about 2 years on our own first. DS was conceived on our 4th round of clomid 150mg days 3-7. Good luck!

  • Clomid worked wonders for us. We had been TTC since 11/09 with only 1 pregnancy that ended in miscarriage before we even knew we were pregnant in January of 2011. We had two rounds of Clomid in 2012, one at 50mg, and one at 100mg...then surgery to remove endo, check tubes, and proceeded with a third round of a Clomid at 150mg (this time we had a 10 day round of Provera before the Clomid) and got pregnant that month, May of 2012! We now have a happy, healthy, 1 year old DD! GL and baby dust to you!
