Hi ladies! I have a personal question to ask, so feel free to ignore it if you don't want to answer, I would completely understand
I just started taking Clomid this cycle and we are having our first IUI! I do ovulate on my own, but it is erratic, so obviously I am wondering about the chance of multiples, although I know it is low for Clomid users. So did any of you use fertility drugs too and conceive multiples? Part of me is wondering if the low risk (I think it is 7%) of multiples for Clomid users comes mostly from women who don't ovulate at all, and if I should prepare myself I know this isn't very scientific, but I am curious! Thanks!
I used clomid first, but didn't get any results, so in the end used shots to make the eggies grow. I ended up with twins because of the shots not clomid. my doctor had explained that the chances of twins from clomid were te same as if you were on nothing at all, but for me, because of the issue i had, the chance of multiples from the shots were very high. my doctor really hoped clomid would work so we wouldn't have to deal with the shots!
I used Clomid and IUI. We did about 5 IUI cycles (with a m/c on the 2nd one). I was just about to move up to the shots when I got my BFP. We actually didn't do IUI the last time because the doctor missed the cycle, so DH and I just happened to catch it on our own I also have a strong genetic predisposition to twins, so I'm pretty sure both factors combined is what did it for me!
I was on Clomid when we conceived our twins. For you, taking Clomid could release two eggs (which is most likely what happened for me) but the percentage is low. Good luck to you! I'm sure you can handle twins if it happens!
