Hi, im still sorta new to this site....but this is my secong month on clomid since i found out i made pcos....Im 24 yrs old and have been married almost 4 years and have a 22 month old dd.
We didnt think we'd have a a problem trying for our second child....but we were wrong...we've been trying 9months now...and just found out the pcos news...
Last month i took clomid and didnt think i ovulated, i could tell before, when trying w/my daughter..each month i could feel the side pain...so after not being pregnant last month, i went in for my endometrial biopsy (which i posted about-my cervix was closed, so they didnt get a biopsy, worst pain ever!!) so dr. said do clomid again this month, which i did, today is day 16, i went out and got fertility monitor test sticks, b/c i had used it when trying with my daughter...and i wanted to see if i was ovulating....but no "peak" yet and being day 16 i dont think ill see a peak this month....
Should clomid be working if its gonna work?? i feel like im wasting time if its not the right thing for me...im sooo confused and have this feeling that ill never be pregnant again...i dont understand...
I go back to the dr. next week on thursday for another atempt for a biopsy....which im sooooo dreading.....
Is there anything i should ask the dr. or be doing? Please, i need words of encoragement....does clomid need time to work??

Are you taking Metformin? If not, I think that should be one of the things you should ask your doctor about. Most women with PCOS take it even if you dont have the insulin resistance. My doctor told me that it usually takes a few months on the metformin before it can get your body back into "working" order, maybe thats why you arent ovulating on the clomid. I know that for me, the doctor said to give the metformin at least 6 months to work before we could start ttc. Hope this helps

I feel your pain, Ive been on clomid for 5 months and have not had a surge. Its frustrating. Between the Clomid and the horomone treatments I'm on, its been rough. We have been trying for 3 1/2 years and it seems like the medications will never help.

I do not think that if you did get a surge on CD16 you will not O this cycle. How long are your cycles? CD16 is still pretty early. Give yourself a few more days. GL!

Are you being monitored on clomid? Is your doc giving you regular scans & bloods?
If not, get them done. Doctors can be so lazy - give a perscription for clomid & on your way . .
I agree with the others, with PCOS you should be on Metformin ALL the time, ttc or otherwise, as it helps regulate your cycle & those lovely symptoms that come with pcos!!!
All the best xxxxxx*******************
