Is it necessary to take Clomid (clomiphene) the 2nd time since I didn't get pregnant the 1st time I took it?

Is it necessary to take Clomid (clomiphene) the 2nd time since I didn't get pregnant the 1st time I took it?

Clomid (clomiphene): Keep in mind that pregnancy may not happen on the first attempt with clomid, (clomiphene) as some cycles may not be fertile cycles. Therefore, it may be necessary to sometimes go through several Clomid (clomiphene) cycles before moving on to something else. Do bring up your concerns to your doctor.

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date.

Since I've been on shots for 8 years and I just got off I decided to take 100mg Clomid (clomiphene) to get pregnant how do you recommend me to take it?

Bad idea: It's a prescription drug in the us for good reasons. If you don't now how/when to start and monitor it you can get into complications much more important than side effects.

We are currently trying to get pregnant with the assistance of clomid (clomiphene). I take it on days 3-7. What day should I expect to ovulate?

We are currently trying to get pregnant with the assistance of clomid (clomiphene). I take it on days 3-7. What day should I expect to ovulate?

Varies: Most patients ovulate between days 12-16. Clomid (clomiphene) rarely changes that. What Clomid (clomiphene) does it increases the hormones that promote ovulation (fsh). You should be either monitored by a doctor for ideal ovulation time, or at the least do ovulation predictor kits at home. If neither are available then have intercourse days 12, 14, 16.

Would it hurt my ovaries to take 100mg Clomid (clomiphene) w/ my estrogen level @ 213? Also will that level hurt my chance 2 get pregnant?

Would it hurt my ovaries to take 100mg Clomid (clomiphene) w/ my estrogen level @ 213? Also will that level hurt my chance 2 get pregnant?

High estrogen level: Did you also have a sonogram? A cyst on one or both of your ovaries could cause your Estradiol level to be 213, if the blood test was on day 2, 3 or 4 of your cycle. Estradiol levels are also high later in your cycle when a follicle is developing. Clomid (clomiphene) won't work to help you ovulate this month if your estrogen level is this high, but it won't hurt your ovaries. Talk to your dr about your options.

I have pcos and I do not have a period at all. We are trying to get pregnant would Clomid (clomiphene) be okay to take? Or something else?

May help: Talk w/your doctor. Metformin may also help to regularize menses and even restore fertility. Diet, exercise and weight loss can help a lot. Other rx is available if testosterone is elevated.

I have pcos do I need to take Clomid (clomiphene) to get pregnant or I should first try without taking any medication?

I have pcos do I need to take Clomid (clomiphene) to get pregnant or I should first try without taking any medication?

Need Treatment: Unless your cycles are exactly 28 days and have always been regular, I would suggest you seek treatment. We prefer Letrozole over Clomid (clomiphene) due to success and side effects. The fact that cycles are irregular even if they are only off a little (30 - 32d), the risk of miscarriage is high. This would be the reason I would recommend treatment. In addition the time to pregnancy will be shorter.

If I take 50mg of Clomid (clomiphene) and don't have a ovulation problem will I still concieve and could I get pregnant with twins?

Sure: If used and monitored properly Clomid (clomiphene) will not interfere with your normal fertility. The chance of twins on Clomid (clomiphene) is 4-6%.

Had stillbirth first pregnancy on 150mg of Clomid (clomiphene) will it take same amount of Clomid (clomiphene) to make me ovulate this time and get pre. Currently taking 100mg.

No way to know: There is no way to know what dose of Clomid (clomiphene) you will require, but a dose that was successful in the past is usually a good place to start.

My fertility doctor prescribed me glumetza and Clomid (clomiphene) cause I wasn't ovulating and my b.S. Is high. I was wondering if I get pregnant will I still take?

You will stop: Once you are pregnant, you will have no need for the clomid (clomiphene). Medication for you blood sugars will depend on if they think that you have diabetes, in which case, you would need to be on medication. If you do not have diabetes now, ask about early screening for diabetes during preganncy.

I have PCOS How long does it take to get pregnant if I take Clomid (clomiphene) and metformin?

Impossible to say: Clomiphene and metformin are effective but it is not possible to know if and when you will conceive. About 80-90% of women will ovulate half of them will conceive. Most conceptions will happen within 3-4 months.

Can I take other fertility helpers with my metformin and Clomid (clomiphene) to help get pregnant with pcos?

Can I take other fertility helpers with my metformin and Clomid (clomiphene) to help get pregnant with pcos?

Maybe: Fertility helpers can be: fertility tests not done, surgery for other problems, adding IUI in some cases. If the clomid/metformin are causing you to ovulate then time may work. Later try coh/iui or ivf. Other otc supplements may be helpful full or harmful. Recently, coq-10 and dhea have been popular but all these should be used with doc management. Best wishes.

I am 36 and am on my 3rd round of IUI (we did 2 vials this month) but my doctor won't allow me to take Clomid or any other medecine until after 6 failed attempts. Is that normal? I am gay so it's not like I was trying to get pregnant before this and fail

Hmmmm: You should trust your doctor of course, but multiple IUI with unstimulated cycles (no medicine) is an 'unusual' treatment plan. If you are having trouble communicating with this doctor, a second opinion could be in order.
