Just thinking.....

It's funny since we made the choice to do clomid with IUI for 4 cycles how many people have come out of the woodwork to say clomid did not work for me......

Anyone out there that clomid has worked for?

Anyone think we should just push forward to IVF?

I need advice.

Um...well, let me join in on the "clomid didn't work for me" club. It also make me crazy.

I actually found it kind of a relief to finally give in and start IVF. IVF was our worst-case scenario (now we have new worst-case scenarios), and it wasn't nearly as scary as I thought it would be.

But yeah, you usually have to take out a big fat loan.

39 years ago, my mother was waiting to give birth to me (I was born May 5) and, if it wasn't for clomid, I probably wouldn't be here!

Clomid worked for my best friend, too!

I would also say that, before jumping to IVF, you can consider doing IUI's with injectables if clomid doesn't work.

Sorry to chime in with the same story...but we did 4 months of clomid only and 2 months of clomid, injectibles, and the IUI. None of it worked...

Then we got into a progesterone study, that I can't begin b/c of the clomid! The clomid must be out of my system for 3 months to begin the study. I'll start taking BCP in 2 weeks and then begin the nightmare of traveling 50 miles for monitoring all to save $10K. But that seems worth it to me.

GOOD LUCK TO YOU!
