my doctor gave me clomid to start taking on day 3 of my cycle, however, i'm kinda nervous as to do this. i was ok with it but people have put things in my head that are scaring me. we have been married for 7.5 months and we have been trying since then with nothing. I took an ovulation test and it didn't show anything. what should i do? i'm scared that if i do it and nothing is wrong that it will hurt our chances.

I know when i was pregnant with my first son, i was told that i had cysts on my uterus. my doctor said it could be hard for the second one. i was ok with taking it, then i got scared by some things other women were saying now i'm not sure.



I did buy the book taking charge of your fertility and just by the cervical fluid i could tell something wasn't quite as it should be but i'm not sure as to what to do. my current doctor isn't testing or anything like that which makes me wonder if i should take it or not.

I am on clomid, and I definitely do not have any 'horror' stories like I have heard as well. I had some of the simple side effects, but that's normal. I had the same side effects on metformin. This will be my second month on clomid.

Did your doctor give you clomid without doing any testing first?  Before the age of 35 you aren't considered infertile until you've been trying for a full year.  Yet, if you have a medical condition like PCOS then it doesn't matter (of course).  What do you mean you took an ovulation test and it showed nothing?  Do you mean the doctor did a test or you took OPKs?   Do you know your cycles well?  If your doctor did a test and it was the wrong day for you then it may not be an accurate reflection of what is really going on.  I personally would not take clomid without being monitored.  Now, if you really aren't ovulating then clomid may fix that for you.  You should only take it 6 times in your whole life.  That's what is recommended.  If you haven't been doing OPKs while trying then you may not be trying at the right time.  If you are nervous about taking clomid I just wouldn't take it.  I would really research it.  Find out if it is worth it for you.  Please, if you do take it, insist on being monitored.  You may find it excessive, but it could really make a difference.  Some people decide to go against their doctor's orders and have their cycle cancelled with clomid but go home and have sex anyway.  That is a way to get high order multiples.  Also, you may need to adjust the dosage of it.   Before taking any medication you should research it.  If you feel like you have a condition that is causing you not to get pregnant it may be worth it to you to find out what it is instead of throwing clomid at it.  If you have PCOS, for example, medication and a change in diet may be all you need to help you get pregnant.
