This my second cycle on clomid. I have been charting my temps this month but I haven't seen any ovulation yet. I took my last pill on sat aug 27. I heard that you should ovulate around day 5-10 after your last pill. Well I haven't seen any temp changes. I'm on day 10 and nothing. I'm taking 50mg, should i take maybe 100mg next time? My Dr told me also to take them on day 5-7 only 3 pills does that sound right? I've read a lot of woman take them for more days like days 4-8 or even 3-7. ANYONE USING CLOMID RIGHT NOW THAT COULD GIVE ME SOME ADVISE I WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATED.

I finished my 1st round of 50mg days 3-7. I've been charting my temps too and don't think I ovulated either. I went for a blood test today to see if I did, probably find out in a few days. But if I didn't I'm supposed to go thru another cycle of the same. I would like to move to 100mg also, but don't think my dr. will let me... He made it sound like I'd have to go thru 3 cycles like this... Have you asked your dr. yet if you can switch?

Hi Jenny, I'm currently taking 100mg of Clomid and from my temps and OPK it looks like I did ovulate this month. I've never heard of taking 3 pills per cycle. I take 5 pills on days 2-6. I never ovulated on 50mg so hopefully 100mg will do the trick. Also my doc said sometimes it might take a cycle or two of clomid for your body to get adjusted to it. Good luck

Hi Julie, you see my Dr didn't even wanted to prescribe it to me. He wanted me to go to an infertility specialist. I told him let me just try it for a couple of months since we already know that the problem is that I'm not ovulating. So he agreed, but I don't think he's going to change it he will probably will tell me to go to the specialist. I really ttc without doing that since it's so expensive and my insurance will not cover any infertility treatments. So I think that I'm going to try 100mg next cycle. Maybe that would do it. I purchase some clomid online thy where so much cheaper. And your right Sara I heard of 5 pills but never of 3. I think he was scared to prescribe me more that. He keep saying to me "you may have multiple pregnancy" I said to him I am aware of the side effects, let me just try it for a couple of months, if it doesn't work then I'll go to the specialist. So here we go I'm going to try one last time. Thanks a lot guys you really helped a lot! Baby Dust to all!!

I took Clomid for the first time this month--days 3-7(never heard of only 3 days) and today is day 25 and no temp change yet to confirm ovulation--next month I will try 100mg. Right now we are going to a specialist but he'd not doing anything different than what my OB would do so it's not costing us any more money to see him than to see my OB---hope this helps and Baby Dust to you!

i did 2 rounds of clomid 100mg, days 5-9. 1st time i od on cd21, and 2nd time i od on cd28. this is my 3rd cycle, i am taking 150mg, on days 3-7. i am now waiting for o. looks like clomid may sometimes make u o even late, like my case. 100 mg didnt give me much side effects, but this time, ive been very moody i guess..

I have taken clomid in the past. I began taking in Jan. of 2004. In Jan. I took 50mg with mo success. My doc. had me take 100mg beginning in Feb. I did that until May 2004. No pregnancy and only ovulated 1 - 2 months out of the 5 months. I took a break and June got preg. on our own but m/c in July. In Sept. of 2004, we began again at 100mg. In Jan, of 2005, we paired clomid with IUI twice, nothing. Took another break until July of 2005. When I went to the fertility doc in July, they explained that clomid dries cervical mucus (which is very important) and some people it is just not a good thing. I was upset with all the time spent in clomid (along with all the moodiness). In August, we decided to try follistim + IUI and I am happy to report, so far, we are preg ( I am spotting so they are monitoring for another m/c) and go back on Friday for blood check. My advice, really talk with your doc. and get good answers and do not settle for less. I wish I would have asked and researched more so I did not let 13 months go by. Good Luck to you!

I forgot, I took my clomid from 3 - 7 but when we went to fertility doctor, he had me take it 3-9
