I have been trying to Conceive for the last 2 years! I've tried everything, and I've listened to all the doctors! My monthly cycle is beyond out of control! I got sometimes 3 months without one, unless I take the Provera! My doctor prescribed Clomid 50mg (fertility), but I am too scared to take it! I've heard so much negative about it! I got pregnant with my first child, with no problem! I don't understand what is wrong this time! My doctor seems to not be able to find anything wrong, as well!! Does anyone know any way I can try to get pregnant?? Please help!!

Do not be afraid of clomid! It is not bad if you don't over use it, I have my son due to that wonderful drug! I had to actually go through IUI due to not being able to conceive on our own. It is a time con summing process but nothing like IVF. Also, a little trick that my friend told me about was Robitussin! I know sounds crazy, but cough syrup, without a decongestant, thins your cervical mucus to help the "little swimmers" get to their destination! If you want to ask more questions about fertility, let let me know, I will help out in any way! I wish you all the best and can't wait to hear the good news that you are pregnant again!

I went through 4 years of TTC and I tried EVERYTHING...lol. The pills didnt work for me IUI didnt work for me. So finally we did the shots and IUI and it worked like a charm. I know what helped that cycle work so well was acupunctute. It made me respond so good to the shots and the IUI took first time. It doesnt hurt at all and it really helps you relax alot. I recommend it! I am getting ready to try again for baby number 2 and if I cant do it on my own I plan on acupuncture and the shots again. Good luck to you!!!!

If you are afraid to take Clomid, there are other options. I took Femara, my RE liked it because it has fewer side effects and less instances of twins. Don't let my pic fool you, I had twins probably because of the myriad of other medicines I was on. The one cycle I had with just Femara, I probably only produced one egg.
When you do decide to take fertility drugs, remember why you are doing it. Hormone altering medicines aren't fun, but they really do work.

if you're cycle is that abnormal you might have pcos, you should be seeing a reproductive endocrinologist in addition to your ob, especially if your ob hasn't bothered to do any sort of testing to see if you have it yet.

I am having a similar situation. I havent had a period in 6 months after coming of birth control pills. I went to see the doctor and they checked a lot of things because I was and still am lactating. They tested for HCG levels which was negative and prolactin levels, normal. Also things like my thyroid which all cam out fine. They gave me Provera so I would have a period and hopefully begin to ovulate. Well after 7 days of taking those pills I waited and waited and its been a month now with still no period. My dr seems stumped so she ordered and FSH test my levels were 8.1 which is in the normal range. Now I am going to have an ultrasound done in a little over a week, I really dont even know what they are looking for at this point. I did have a pregnancy four years ago that resulted in a miscarriage after 8 weeks. I am so nervous that I am not going to be able to get pregnant and its really taking its toll on me and my marriage. I am lost and need some advice myself!

I concieved 3 times on Clomid. Why are you afraid to take it? Many of my friends got pregnant with it. It's a lot easier than injectables and IUIs which I did twice for my first child and the least evasive. While you had no problem with your first you could have secondary infertility. After I had my 1st child I was able to concieve on my own, did twice (I had frequent miscarriages), then after my 2nd child and 2 miscarriages I had to use Clomid to get pregnant again. Now that I am done having kids my cycles are not only normal but early, figures.



Good luck.

I am in your same shoes now. After having my 2nd son, the pregnancy through my body through a hug loop. I had lots of health issues after, having him. One being, not ovulating. I've been taking provera, for that past 12 months. Last month I took the 5 pills of Clomid. I've had no problems with it. I am now waiting 2 weeks, to see if I get a positive pregnancy test.
I as well have no idea why I can't get pregnant.. Sometimes this just happens, and your body may fix it all on its own. You've just got to be patient and wait! It will happen. I would recommend Clomid. I've had no issues with it! Good luck!!

My husband and i have been trying for 14 years to get pregnant. We still have had no luck. I have had 21 surgeries on my left side for ovarian cysts. Yet they still keep happening and only the left side seems to be working. My OBGYN keeps telling me there is a chance that the right might take over sometime. Well i'm not getting any younger i'm now 32. And the only child i have is now my soon to be 15 year old son. I don't know what else to do and its frustrating as all heck. I have been to so many fertility doctors and they mentioned going IVF but my husband and i can't afford it. But we both want another baby and my son so bad wants a little brother or sister. Can anyone give me any advise on what i can do to have another little miracle. We are starting to lose hope after trying every month for the last 14 years. We did try the vacation relaxation thing that doesn't work. Please any advise is welcome.

Vitex. It helps to balance your hormones (although doesn't give you hormones) - it's an herb (known as Chasteberry). I had 15 years of unexplained infertility and a really wonky period. I started taking Vitex in September 2007 and had a period every 30 days. February 2008 - positive HPT and my daughter is now 2-years old.

Another one to try is Maca Root. Does the same thing as Vitex.

I agree that telling someone to "relax" is the worst thing to say - I heard that so many times and it just ticked me off even more!!! Good intentions by it or not. Goes with "go on vacation".

Good luck to you!!!

sorry, but that is the worst possible thing you can say to someone who is dealing with infertility. infertility is usually due to a condition, endometriosis, pcos, male factor, etc, "relaxing" doesn't treat any of these conditions.

I've taken the clomid before, it didn't work for me, but it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be. Just remember people respond differently, and try to think positive. Also remind your man that it can make you a little off- if you and those around you expect it, its not as bad. I just felt like I was PMSing really bad. One of my co-workers said something to me, after I bit her head off for no reason, she was like- oh, your on the clomid right? Then I stopped and appologized.... people will give you some space if they know what your going through. Good luck hun!

Hi first take a deep breathe i am sorry that it has been a struggle but I completely understand how you are feeling... I have PCOS (polyositic ovarian syndrome) I went a whole year without my menstrual cycle and actually started to go through metapause and I am only 21 years old....do not be scared of clomid.. anything and everything you take are always going to come with warnings it's a part of meds but I went on clomid and had to go up to 100 mg and I am now currently expecting July 3rd..... Give it a try because before I went on it my husband and i were told that children were probably going to be impossible and we would have to do Invitro but to try the clomid first even though they did not think it would work but it did!! I had no side effects and it was good... I hope this helps...also you may want to see an endocrinologist ( hormone specialist) because you may have some type of hormone problem that is effecting you getting pregnant that's how i found out about my PCOS and i also have a thyroid problem...good luck

I say give the Clomid a try...I understand it's kinda scary to start on a new medicine that you're unsure about (That's how I was when my OB/GYN prescribed Femara). I have had several friends on Clomid and luckily all of them have had successful pregnancies as a result of it:) The worst side effect that they had from taking it was a mild headache. Best wishes to you!! :)

I did three rounds of Clomid. Most people that atke it have PCoS or endometriosis, and this medicine can cause those conditions ot flare up and become really painful. I say give it a whirl. I didn't get pregnant on Clomid, but I have endo. If you haven't found anything really "worng", you may want to give it a whirl. You may be a little nauseaus and you may get headaches, but you can manage those with other meds or chiropractic care. When I finally concieved after three years of infertility, it was right after I took a vacation AWAY from the hubby to see my sisters new baby. I must have drank a lot of her water, cause I concieved the night I came back with no help at all. So do something to let yourself relax. I was also taking prenatal vitamins, so really start taking them regularly. And exercise...tone your body, you'll feel better, have less stress, and your body will be more ready for pregnancy. These things were my magic...good luck!!!

Be glad that you have Clomid to try. I tried for almost 14 years to get pregnant with no help or luck. The doctors couldn't tell me why I wasn't getting pregnant and I couldn't afford to do anything to help. I heard someone mention starting pre-natal vitamins while trying to conceive. I started taking the vitamins and after 6 months found out that I was pregnant. I'm not saying that the vitamins did it but, I had all but given up and it seemed like something worth trying. It was during my c-section that my doctor discovered the reason that it took me so long to get pregnant. Not only is my uterus tilted but, it is also not shaped right.

My SIL was the same way. She has PCOS and had to take Provera. She was trying for her first and the doc gave her Clomid. She concieved in her 3 cycle.

I took Clomid as well. The worst that happened was hot flashes (which DH loved, because I let him turn the AC down more). Oh, and sometimes there isn't anything wrong to be found. I have unexplained infertility.....

Good luck!

Hi, I had clomid after 2 years of trying and concieved straightaway, then when my daughter was 2 years old, I started taking vitamins to regulate my cycle which was all over the place at the time (i took a combination of B vitamins, flaxseed oil, and selenium) I fell pregnant 6 weeks after starting them. (which was a bit surprising!)

Bree, my hubby and I tried concieving for 3 years. In that 3 years, we concieved naturally and miscarried...a very painful experience. I have to admit, I was very scared and skeptical. After all, my miscarriage... and after infertility testing...we were told that pregnancy was a "fluke" thing because hubby and I are unable to have children.
My family doctor said, loose 20 lbs and I will make sure u will see a certain doc in the infertility clinic. I took clomid and progesterone and I got pregnant that month! I have a baby girl---healthy as can be. Second child, same infertility drugs and I have a healthy baby boy. So...I am GRATEFUL for clomid as it has worked for me. I am a mother as I have always wanted to be. :) I was scared too, but take the leap, take the chance---you will never know if u do not try.

Have you seen a reproductive endocrinologist? They will monitor you while you are taking Clomid. I took it. It wasn't exactly Disneyland but it is way better than not being pregnant.

The doctor can't find anything wrong? The fact that your cycles are irregular is the problem as you are probably not ovulating each month. That is what Clomid is for. I got pregnant after trying to conceive for 7 years via IVF so that`s an option...an expensive option. I`d try the Clomid first.
