I also found out that I have PCOS. I was on Clomid for 3 months and got pregnant on the third round! My son is now 8 months old. I was also put on a couple of hormone pills at the same time...most important part...keep up the cycle they give you...everything on the right days. Good Luck!

Same here, and we were on round two now we have a beautiful 8 mo old boy, and guess what already preggo AGAIN. It seems to work well, they will want to monitor closely due to the fact of possible multiples our little guy was almost a quintuplet, but the other eggs never dropped

My husband & I tried for 3 years, and after our first round w/ Clomid 50mg (& IUI) we got pregnant... briefly. Round 2 (50mg): "dud." The follicle was empty/ there wasn't a mature egg. Round 3 (100mg): TWINS!!! We're due Christmas Eve!
Good luck/Congratulations to everyone... and how great to have a "place" where everyone understands the pain/frustration/heartbreak/emotions that come with infertility.

I was on fertility meds for almost 2 years when I finally got pregnant with my baby girl. I tried Clomid 50mg, 100mg, 150mg, then Femara. After this I went to a fertility specialist. I lost 20 lbs then went on Clomid 250mg for 5 days (prescribed by the fertility specialist) and used the ovidrel injection. I took this for 2 rounds and ended up pregnant right before Christmas last year!!! Finding out I was pregnant on Dec.22 was the best Christmas present ever! My daughter was born August 17, 2009. Hang in there, it does work.

I was on the Clomid and got pregnant, unfortunately I miscarried at 8 weeks (undiagnosed thyroid problem). After the D&C I went back on Clomid and built up a resistance to it. My husband and I had to use Follistim shots to get pregnant. Keep your head up!

I was put on one round of Clomid which didn't work. I then decided to go directly to IUI which worked. I just gave birth to a beautiful girl on August 29th. the stress of the whole procudure of trying to concieve was well worth it in the end. Stay positive!
I used it when I started fertility treatments. My doctor was not hopeful due to other circumstances but our insurance required it be tried first before IVF. It was rough on my stomach and I lost a few pounds each month I was on it. Needless to say we had to do IVF anyway (remember I had more health obstacles that would not allow the sperm to work). Good Luck

CLomid did not work for me, but I know women that it has helped. In my case, I was put on 50 mg of the Clomid (with the Estrogen and Prgesterone), after one cycle, my doc bumped it up to 100 mg. After that, we tried Letrozole. It took 4 cycles, and then it worked. The difference between Letrozole and Clomid is that 1) with Letrozole, you don't take the extra hormones and 2.) Letrozole doesn't dry up your cervical fluid.
I was put on it for three cycles. My doctor figured it wouldn't work for me but I had to try it at least 3 times in order for the insurance company to pay for IVF. The great part was I lost my appetit while on it and lost a ton of weight! Good Luck.
It didn't work for me at all -- if you are not happy with your result and would like another option before moving on to the next level of infertility treatment options check with your doctor about Femarra. It could be another option for you. Best of luck!

I also have PCOS and have gone through the process of Clomid. The first time I took it, it didn't work. After that my OBGYN sent me to a infertility specialist. She made sure that I was having a regular cycle and started me on Clomid along with other medications. After several months (4) of the Clomid not working she sent me for a procedure to make sure that my fallopian tubes were open. Unfortunately I had one that was not working like it was suppose to. We decided for me to have exploratory surgery the next month. I ended up with a polyp on the end of my tube (which they removed) and endometrosis (sp.) (which they removed also). After that we decided to go back to square one and I got back on Clomid and the other meds. Two months later we were pregnant. Just hang in there. It can be a long road but it is so worth it!
