I'm going to agree with every single thing Lauren said. I did my first clomid cycle in December 2007. Yeah, that was going to be IT. The magic cycle for us. And here we sit, 6 years later, still with empty arms, spending thousands of dollars on treatments and enduring numerous miscarriages and plenty of doctors telling me that THIS would fix all our issues. I'd love to give you a success story. I'd love to tell you that your OB will be able to get you pregnant no problem. But without at least doing bloodwork to know where you start, starting blindly is just a recipe for possible future heartache.

I'm so sorry for all y'alls losses. But right now, we can't afford those specialists. The closest one is a hour and a half away, and my doctor is a hour away. I live in a town with not a lot of choices to be picky about a doctor. A thought OBGYNs specialized in pregnancy and women problems

They specialize in in pregnancy and female issues but NOT infertility. Some have experience with infertility but most just touch the basics like prescribing basic meds and ordering a test or two. If it gets to complicated they will refer you out to an RE instead.

We are not trying to discourage you we are trying to help you. You are young and have time on your hands which is a good thing. I truly hope these meds work for you and you get pregnant and a take home baby out of it. We'd love to be wrong !!!!! We all wish no one had to go through and see the stuff we've seen TTCMA. We were just trying to figure out the route your OB was going towards and to let you know medications can also mess things up specially without being monitored to see if they are working or not.

Just to throw this out there too.... your Dr gets kick backs on prescribing medication. Therefore he is trying to prescribe you expensive Crinone progesterone @ $500.00 instead of vaginal suppositories progesterone that cost about $15.00

Wouldn't it be better to start with the less expensive version of progesterone if that is even what you need?

If you Google "success with Crinone" you will literally get 108,000 results and tons of stories like you are looking for.

While we love sharing success stories and things that worked for us, our board is also about empowering women with knowledge so they get the best possible medical care. Doctors can be lazy and take advantage of patients who haven't done their own research. I agree with the other ladies...it is irresponsible (at best) for your doc to prescribe meds without any bloodwork or testing.

Your OB/GYN should do CD3 bloodwork and 7DPO bloodwork at a minimum...I would demand it and wait for results before proceeding.

Good luck...I hope that your doc listens to you and gives you the care you deserve!

I called my doc back today and they said for 1 mg they don't need a blood test. Cause its only for 4 days. But another part I left out is that since June, I've been bleeding every other week and I've looked up that clomid can help with that...

That's kind of a huge deal to leave out. You should be doing a round of provera to hopefully stop the cyclical bleeding and establish a baseline. Then you should have cd3 labs run before starting clomid or estrogen. You need to have your LH, FSH, e2, p4, and thyroid levels checked to see if they can determine a cause to the bleeding. If your doctor isn't trying to establish a cause to existing issues before trying to get you pregnant, then they cannot know what is the best course of treatment.

Hypothetical situation...let's say you take your car to a mechanic. You tell him that it is making funny noise sometimes when you drive. Without lifting the hood of your car, he tells you what new parts you need. Wouldn't it strike you as strange that he was wanting to "fix" things on your car without even looking at it? Wouldn't you think he was just out to make money?

This is what your doctor is doing.
