Hey everyone me and my husband have been trying for a year. My last depo shot 13 months ago! I got regular periods a month after i got off the shot and I haven't gotten pregnant yet the doctor says I'm not ovulating and I'm on 50mg of clomid I'm on day one and I'm wondering what to expect?
Anyone gotten pregnant off of it? Does it work? I'm really hoping we get it the first try! Any advice is greatly appreciated

Hi and welcome.

We've been TTC for about 14 months...and been on Clomid for 4 months.
For 2 of those 4 months we tried IUI.

Still no BFP.

Clomid does help alot of ladies ovulate, and I've heard so many success stories!

Wishing you all the best!

Hi Armywife201,

If you google IUI, you'l find a ton of information describing the process.

Basically, it puts the sperm right at the top of the uterus just before or after ovulation (normally timed with a trigger if the cyfcle is medicated)

This technique is inexpensive when compared to IVF, and is supposed to help with some mild MF issues, and CM issues...

Hi, I'm Nicholle, just passed my 1 yr mark and started clomid last cycle. 50mg didn't do the trick. I'm hoping that the 100mg that I'm taking this cycle will help. Current side effects: hot flashes, moodiness/emotional, sore bbs during first cycle, none this cycle, slight headaches. That's it. I hope clomid works for you!

**Lurking**

Hi, my name is Raina.... and I was on the depo shot for almost 3 years when I came off of it. I never had a regular period after. It would vary between 60 days, 30 days, then I had 3 different 13 days..... it was a headache to say the least.

In Jan my DH and I had been TTC for 14 months.... and my dr finally put me on Clomid. I didnt know what to expect either. I had several different side effects from the clomid, but for me even with the worst side effects the outcome made it worth it.

I had severe migraines.... I would get sick to my stomach... I was EXTREMELY moody.... I had major hot flashes, and breast tenderness. It seemed like every possible side effect you can have with Clomid, well I got them.... I knew in my heart that my body needed the clomid in order to conceive. I was very hopeful and thought that I would conceive on my first cycle. But I didn't. I did however start my cycle like normal on Feb 29th.... and I began my second round of Clomid.

On my second round of Clomid I had the same side effects... but this time it seemed worse..... I tested at 9 DPO, 10 DPO, and 11 DPO and got negatives.... so I was not hopeful at all.... but I decided to test one more time on 12DPO... and to my beautiful surprise it was a BFP!!! I am now expecting a little girl on Dec 7th.

I want to encourage you to lean on these ladies... and let them help you... express your vents, joys, and concerns.... and remember that as much as you are here for these ladies to lean on, they are here for you as well. If you need or want to you can always PM me as well... Hang in there.

I pray that you get your BFP real soon!!!!

Baby Dust to everyone!!!!!

My DH and I have been ttc for 4 years. We tried clomid for 6 months in 2010. Every two months my doctor increased dosage until I finally reached 150mg. I did ovulate on it, but never got pg. The worse effect was the horrible headaches and I was extremely moody. It did regulate my period when I was on it, also.

Just started my 6th round of Clomid. Going to time this with IUI.

Yet to be a BFP, but ever hopeful!
