Seriously this clomid is not working. I have used it over 6 cycles and it is NOT doing the trick.
We are going to be starting month 21 and I am dangerously close to giving up.
I am tired of spending all this money on treatments that do not work.

So.................what are some other treatment options you ladies are using and what is the monthly cost???

I was a Clomid Chick. I felt the same way about Clomid not working at first. I tried to get my doctor to put me on something else but he wouldn't. We are currently taking a break until the first of the year because when I did get preggo on Clomid we had a m/c. I felt like I kept spending and spending with no results. I hope someone here can answer your questions because ttc can get expensive and very frustrating. How many mg.'s of Clomid are you on?

I do follistim injections. 225IU for 7days and then a trigger of 10,000IU of novarel. I have one more shot at this before my RE wants to move on to IVF. I have cried all morning cause I just don't have $6200. My insurance pays for the shots, so I only pay $65. out of pocket for that. A 3 month supply of follistim without insurance is $5600.

i know its frustrating and painful at times...but we have to hang in here hun...or else we'll lose..and after coming sooo far i definitely dont want to lose this battle..i'll be pregnant some how...!!!

sorry that u too have to go through all this...i too feel sometimes that clomid alone is not helping me..but dr says i get good follicles that sure means im getting good eggies...i have to tolerate in this regard coz of dhs semen prob...

good luck hun..
