I drank a beer..... — The Bump
Trouble TTC

I drank a beer.....

but...now I feel guilty! Should I??? Tonight will be my first dose of clomid and I always drink a few on New Years. I had a bad day today and just wanted to come home and relax...hang out with DH and our furbabies and drink a few...but now I am second guessing the drinking. Thoughts?
Me:25 DH:30

My DX:PCOS,ENDO and Uterine Fibroids

DH:SA Normal

6/08 started Metformin 2000mg.

2/09 50 mg clomid: BFN

3/09 Lap & Hysteroscopy to remove polyp, repair left tube, remove endo tissue.

4/09-8/09 clomid cycles (50mg up to 200mg) w/ trigger All BFFN!!!

9/09-9/11 mental and physical break (but still TTC on Metformin) to lose weight and get myself back together...AND I got a new dr.

10/11 HSG: DX Right tube blocked

11/11 100mg clomid + trigger + TI: follie on right side so it's a no go.

12/11 100mg clomid + trigger + Progesterone+ TI= BFFN!


1/12 100mg clomid + trigger + Progesterone + IUI= Cancelled due to cyst
3/12 Lap = Lasered off endo and turns out my tubes are all clear!!!!!
4/12 2.5mg Femara + TI + Progesterone = BBFN!!

  • You are fine to indulge. There is nothing out there saying alcohol and clomid aren't okay. Enjoy yourself with your fur babies, DH, and ring in the new year. I KNOW it will be better than the last one!!! Cheers!!!

  • Don't feel guilty! Enjoy! And, FWIW, my RE would tell you to relax and have a drink or two as well. (I asked her about it when my birthday fell on a trigger day, and she said to have one for her, too!)

    Happy New Year!

  • There's no medical reason why you can't have a beer. For sanity's sake, have a couple every now and then Wink
