i had my trans v-ultrasoud last May 9 and found out that i have two mature follicle. does it mean that there is a posibility for me to get pregnant?

Hi. I have pcos too. i am on 150mg clomid. going to do the ultrasound on 19th May. Yeah marie. IF you have mature follicle which means you will have ovulation. Good Luck!

Hi ladies, I started my first round of Clomid 100mg on the 5th, three days after my period started, to the 9th. I also started Metformin the same day; 500mg twice daily for a week then 500mg three times a day for a week, then 800mg twice a day for good. Is this a normal dosage for either? I am starting to get pains in my lower left side, and down my left leg. So many questions, so few answers! :)


Cherlyn - May 19

Today went for the ultrasound. A little bit disappointed with the result. I still no ovulation. The cyst still not grow much. The 150mg clomid seems does not work on me. My Gynae said maximum can go for 200mg clomid. What can i do if clomid does helps?


Cherlyn - May 19

Sorry, typo error. Should be what can i do if Clomid does not helps?


Drew - May 19

I was told that in my situation-I also have pcos, that if the Clomid and Metformin doesnt work then I can try something called Pergonal. Any one know anything about this?


Monique - July 4

I am about to start my first round of clomid. I have been taking 500 mg of metformin 3 times daily for a little while. I am also taking pre-natal viatamens. Anyone know of anything that will help this situation? Home remedies possibly?

Jackie - September 13

I have pcos and am on 1500 metformin and 100 clomid I have been pg 2 times in 8 months but have misscarried mostly due to low pogesteron I have been triing for 3 years. You really need to be your own advocate. Go to a specialist they moneter you alot closer than your obgyn! Good luck.i am new to this forum and it is conforting to know Im not alone!

Hi girls, I used to post here, and got pg on round 3 of Clomid 100mg and month 3 of Metformin 1700mg. I just want to say do not give up hope, it can happen. I am exactly nine weeks today. ~~~Baby Dust~~~


To Clomid Graduate - September 14

Are you still taking the Metformin...if so how much and how long are you planning on taking it? Any info will help!


Clomid graduate - September 15

Yes, I'm still taking it though I'm down to half what I was 850mg 1/day. All the research I found supported staying on Clomid to help maintain a pregnancy at least for the first trimester. Otherwise those with insulin resistance are more prone to m/c. If you are pregnant I would talk to your doctor about whats best for you. Good luck!
