    My husband and I have been trying for a year now we then went to an infertility specialist here locally, he is great, the first round of clomid 50 mg helped my eggs mature but didnt ovulate so the doctor gave me ather shot to help me ovulate,I did! And we did an IUI but yesterday we found out i am not pregnant. went through all the emotions angry,sad,crying. Today i am little depressed thinking maybe this will never happen for us. I know i juststarted the journey of infertility but its heart breaking, would love to hear some success stories and encouraging words.

    Hang in there!! Hopefully it will happen! I know how frustrating it can be. We've been trying for a year, too. However, I do have a daughter who is now 3.5 years, which helps, but it's still painful. This last march, and this last june, I was so sure I was pregnant, but I wasn't. I was sssoo angry and disappointed So I know what you mean. It such a good sign you are Ovulating! If thats your only issue, it's only a matter of timing and then it will happen for you! I got pregnant on my second round of Clomid, sadly I m/c, but it is the only time I've been pregnant in the last year, so the Clomid did it's job, even though it didn't work out. I'm starting 100 mg in September.. maybe we'll both get our BFP!! Hang in there and keep your chin up! This is so hard, but when we do get our bundles of joy, we will appreciate them more than anyone else.
    Me(26)DH(28)DD(3) TTC 2nd- 1yr, 1st round of clomid 50mg - BFN, 2nd - MC, 3rd- BFN. Been trying naturally 6mos, waiting for AF in Sep to start 100mg of Clomid!

    I know i keep telling people apprciate you got preggo no problem! so you dont have to ride the infertility roller coaster. I went in to the doc today to start my next cycle of clomid but there was a cyst in my right ovary so he said i have to wait for that to burst to start my next cycle, i am only on my 5th day of my cycle so i have to wait another 40ish days. i was a little disappointed but i know its will all work out eventually my body reactived well to the medication the first time. Thank you and i hope it works out for you next time!

    I know it seems like it will never happen but hang in there. I have been trying for two years and finally did pregant sadly suffered a mc at 5 weeks . I still am really sad but doctor told me I would never get pregant. They put me on clomid 50 mg to sstart just to see for two months. Soon as went to 100 mg for some reason fell pregant right away. I have been through all those emotions. I keep a little faith knowing the doctor's are wrong and anything is possible. It will happen for you and when it does you will all this was worth it . That is how i get through this journey...
