Quick question ....

I'm on clomid days 2-6, 50mg

My first cycle was 28 days, then 25 days and today is day29, poas this am BFN!!

just wondering what other people's experiences were/are whilst taking clomid!
I thought that clomid was meant to stabilise cycles and promote ovulation,

all your help is much appreciated (might stop me going mad, was convinced this was the month)

I've only had one full cycle on clomid so far (100mg 2-6) but it was 29 days if thats any help x

Clomid's main job is to make the ovaries work harder.

Would ensure that you are monitored whilst on it (preferably with both blood tests and ultrasounds to see if an egg is actually leaving an ovary) as no monitoring is a complete no-no. Its quite powerful stuff and it can affect hormone levels markedly.

Its really bothering me that I haven't been offered an ultrasound as everyone else seems to be having them!

I had an ultrasound and blood test done for the first cycle, it seemed to show that it was working,

I was thinking whether I should call my GP and ask for a day 21 bloods as I dont think that the conception clinic would do it again ( I called them to ask)

My cycles varied from month to month on clomid, normal cycle length was 32 days and mine were anywhere between 29 and 36 days. They tended to be longer on the months blood tests showed I had ovulated. I was never offered scans but had day 21 bloods every month.

I had a 23 day blood test, does that sound right?

Day 23 should be fine it will still show ovulation. Have you had your results yet?
