We ve bn ttc for 10 mon without sucss. Doc told I am NT ovulating and prescribed clomid (clomiphene).I am depressed, all dried up. Hw to overcome stress?

Understandable. Consider that if you had been trying for 10 months without success because you were not ovulating, and now the problem has been identified, then there is great hope that you will become pregnant. Clomid (clomiphene) should be combined with ovulation predictor kits. Also, talk to your doctor about the vaginal dryness as this may be a side effect of the clomid (clomiphene). Read more...

U/s shows my endo lining is 7mm. Doc said take provera (medroxyprogesterone) to induce AF then take Clomid starting from day 2 of AF. Isn't the lining too thin to get preg?

Variety of protocols. Infertility treatments vary and different doctors have various criteria for determining which treatment is best according to certain criteria. It would be best to discuss your very specific situation with your doctor. Clomid (clomiphene) can cause a thinning of the lining and in those cases other medications can be used. Read more...

Will a doctor consider prescribing Clomid after coming off of Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone) 9 months ago and I am not ovulating? Or will they want me to wait longer?

Worth considering. While the Depo-Provera (medroxyprogesterone) shot should have worn off by now, it is still possible that your cycle irregularity and an ovulation is related to the Depo-Provera (medroxyprogesterone) shot. First, i would make sure that you are not pregnant now, and also ask you doctor about testing for thyroid and prolactin levels. You may then need Provera (medroxyprogesterone) to induce a period and Clomid to induce ovulation. Read more...

Was put on clomid (clomiphene) 50mg due to no ovulation cycle day 21 had progesterone done 7.5 Doc wants another round of 50mg shouldn't he make the dosage higher?

Probably. Sometimes the OB/Gyn doctors are hesitant to go higher than the 50mg dose out of fear of twins and triplets. Given the fact that your P4 level was on the low side, I would recommend increasing the dose to 100mg. If you're being monitored with sonograms then they could always cancel the cycle if it looks like you're over-stimulated (too many follicles). It may be time for you to see a specialist.

Hi doc, took Clomid (clomiphene) 2-6.Tday cd17 OPK shws positive. Do I ovulate so late? Though I tooj Clomid (clomiphene) frm cd2.Can u explain how LH surge on clomid (clomiphene)?

Complicated. Clomid (clomiphene) blocks estrogen in your brain and pituitary gland which allows the hormones that stimulate your eggs to go up. When those eggs get bigger they produce more estrogen, and that estrogen makes your pituitary release more lh which leads to ovulation. The lh surge does not happen until your estrogen is high enough and that can be variable. Read more...
Depends. First of all ovulation kits are not always perfect and they work less for women who do not ovulate. Even if Clomid (clomiphene) works, it still does not guarantee how fast the egg grows and so sometimes a later ovulation can occur. Read more...
