    Leaning on Faith & Clomid
    luswart13 posted:
    Hello ladies,
    First off, it is so encouraging to see how many other women there are like me out there. I have never had a natural period. I am 25 and my husband and I are trying to start a family. My gyno has ruled out a number of possible causes for my lack of cycle and ovulation. I am starting my third round of Clomid this month. I was supposed to have started my period yesterday but haven't, so if nothing happens by day 34 i will take a preg test and then they'll start me on provera to force start a period. Then they are bumping me up to 150mg of clomid. I started at 50mg... Lord help my poor husband. Any encouragement on success you've had on it? My progestorene levels were only at a 10.6 this last month when they should be at least at a 15. holding out hope, and trying to remind myself how worth it all this will be eventually. Thanks Ladies!

    Buttons13 thanks so much for your sweet encouragement! I am mostly struggling with the hot flashes, my word...night time is crazy, hot cold, hot cold. I didn't see the crazy side effects i was worried about being on 150mg this month, yet i am still in this cycle so it could take a turn

    Today is day 15 for me and i am taking ovulation tests, so far nothing but i am staying positive! Who knows.. this could be the month!! thanks again, hope you have luck with clomid baby #2! p.s i love that nick name

    Thanks so much for your sweet words, can't tell you how much it helps seeing other women out there like me. Your side effects sound awful, i hope you are able to take a break from it all and let your body recoop. Hope all is well.

    At 25 years old I was diagnosed with PCOS, and immediately doctors told me it would be very hard to conceive. earing tat news was very upsetting. But to make a long story short I was began taking 1000mg of metformin along with clomid. I recently conceived on my third cycle of clomid, and I am now 12 weeks pregnant and heard my baby's heartbeat for the first time. The funny thing is my gyn thought I would not conceive that month because I never got a positive reading on the opt. Bottom line is follow your doctors orders and continue to have faith. You will get your happy ending
