I'm 24 years old, healthy weight and in shape. I have been trying to get pregnant for 2 in a half years. I got pregnant once and it ended in miscarriage. I did have a D&C. Now almost 2 years away from that, and nothing. I finally got my OBGYN to send me to a reproductive specialist, he also prescribed me Clomid 100mg. I found out last month I am ovulating just fine. So today I went in for an HSG and guess what? THAT'S FINE TOO. What is going on? I do have irregular periods, so my doctor said I could be one of those people who don't ovulate all the time, but still have periods. So I've been taking the Clomid since day 5, but now I'm a little scared of getting pregnant with twins or more. I'm okay with twins, but I would DIE if I had more. My doctor says the odds are incredibly low for any multiples at all, but what I'm reading online makes me not so sure. I mean, that's if I even get pregnant at all!! Nothing is working for me!!
I'm just looking for some reassurance, some sort of support. My husband and I haven't told anyone we are trying, and he doesn't want to talk about it all the time. Any information would be great, any stories.. anything.

I was on Clomid 50mg for 5 months and only had 2 follies once, other times I only had one. And I've ben on Femara 5mg now and this is the first month on it that I have 2 follies. Never had more. I don't think you have anything to worry about. Here in Quebec, they cancel IUIs if you have more than 2 follies, unless your case is a special one.
I've also had an HSG, nothing was wrong. I've done 5 IUIs so far, but they failed (I O too early and my IUIs are too late). I had my 6th one yesterday, which seemed to be right on time this time around!
We still have no idea what is wrong with me, so sometimes it's a real mystery...
Has your DH been tested?
TTC since August 2008
6 IUIs: IVF #1 (september 2012): 11 eggs, none fertilized, no transfer IVF ICSI #1 (may 2013), 1 blastocyst: (m/c 7 weeks ) FET #1 (october 2013), 1 blastocyst: IVF ICSI #2 (april 2014): 5 eggs, 4 fertilized, 2 bad quality embryos, no transfer IVF ICSI #2.1 (coming soon)
I really hope it works out for you this time. i can't imagine that. DH has been tested, but we don't get the results until next week. My Doctor wouldn't do the HSG without a semen sample. I just hope this month is our month, and yours too!!
I'm sorry it's taking so long! It's so frusterating especially with nothing being wrong. Maybe your DH has a low count? I hope you can find some answers with those results. I've been trying for over a year and nothing. I have a 5 year old daughter so this is very frusterating. I haven't been to the dr yet, but I really need to go.
I was on Chlomid 100mg for 3 months. I have VERY irregular periods. One every 3 or 4 months and they last anywhere from 4-13 days..... Dr is right, your chances of multiples is low. Chlomid is more directed at ovulation, unlike IVF which is geared toward implating more than one so you have more chances. I only ovulated once in the 3 months on chlomid and that's when we conceived.
Hi there. Sorry its taking you so long to get PG. Its hard. I did 4 cycles of 100mg of Clomid with IUI. I was unable to conceive. I too, am healthy, at the right weight with nothing wrong that they can find other than two tiny spots of endo (both removed) and a stenotic cervix (which was corrected at the time the endo was removed) and we have still been unable to conceive. DH's semen analysis (both of them) were awful. His swimmers do not swim and the ones that do are funny shaped so they can't penetrate an egg. So maybe the semen analysis will hold all the answers for you. Since we still cannot conceive, we have decided to adopt. I know its not the same...I won't be able to experience the joys (and the not so joys!) of pregnancy and that was really hard for me to cope with at first but just remember, there are plenty of ways for you to become a mother and grow your family without actually conceiving should it come to that. Try to relax while you wait for results. Relaxing is key when trying to conceive. Easier said that done, I know! Sending you baby dust and lots of positive thoughts!
