Hi ladies! I was wondering if anyone else is moving onto clomid and IUI? I have had success with clomid several times but this will be first time using it after 40 yrs old.

I used clomid for only 2 mths a while back .those two mths were not good for me. I had hoped I'd full pregnant like it was a magic pill lol . And didn't ! My dh said I was either moody or angry or crying . But saying all that .at this point in time I'm saving like mad to go to the doc to maybe give it another try after having the dye in my tubes first . I'm kind of feeling that fulling pregnant ourselfs isn't gonna happen . I'm 40 in june so a little help may be needed .

I did 3 months of 50 mg of clomid with the first month doing an IUI. Obviously I am still here so I had no luck with it. I don't think I had any major issues taking it, husband may say otherwise. I did notice that on months 2 and 3 I did have headaches on the last 2 days of each round.

Ughh yes the side effects hit me hard...I get SEVER O pains so bad I can barley bd and the moosd swings or pretty bad for me. I will taking 100mg next cycle and bd natural and if no pg we move to clomid and IUI. MY dr says there is not much evidence that shows clomid is beneficial after 40. I had done IUI before and clomid...just not together and not after 40.

good luck hun , i hope it works out for you , i didnt know that about clomid when over 40 !! great just when my dh was coming around to the idea of mw taking it again , kind of had a chat with him last night about it , he said he will think about it in a few mths time ,prob may time .my only problem is that i may have to get it of the internet again and take a chance ,as the cost here in the uk is so high for any kind of ivf treatment .

We could never afford IVF here it is about $10,000 . IF the clomid/IUI does not work that will be all for us. We would just try natural again.

its so bad the price in uk and other there ,its hard enough as it is with out the mega costs put on top !! same as us hun there is only a little bit of money once that is gone ,then thats it ,altho buying of the net is big risk with the clomid after paying 350 for the dye in my tube i wont have money left for any more treatment ,so a left with not many choices , we all do what we got to do . iv said i will drop this weight im carrying first tho ,so will be a few more mths yet before i take those steps again, never know i may full by myself before then ,stranger things have happened ,

I am down about 10 pnds since Christmas and want to lose another 30/40 at least but I am not dieting just watching how much and what I eat plus Roller skating 2 hours a day 3x a week. I have lost about 35 pounds in the last year and kept it off
