"My boyfriend and I tried to get pregnant for a year. I charted every day. According to the charts, I was fine. I was on depo for 10 years after having my first child. So I'm sure that affected my ovulation. I took clomid once at the beginning of May 06 and had a positive pregnancy result on June 1st. I don't think I needed it but it happened. I have 2 healthy (born at 26 weeks) twins."

"I'm 25 years and I have been trying for a baby for two years. My doctor put me on clomid and I started today, being my second day of menstrual flow. I'm hopeful because of the comments so far. I pray I carry my baby soon. I wish us all success in the journey."
"Hy guys I recently turned 28 and been trying to conceive for six months with irregular periods decided to see OB/GYN and diagnosed me with PCOS. He put me on clomid 50mg I ovulated and got my period then the second month he increased the dose to 100mg had sex on fertile days then got pregnant. Thanks to the positive stories that gave me hope in this group"
"My husband and I tried getting pregnant for well over a year before we had any testing done. I had blood work that determined I was not ovulating. I took one cycle of Clomid and got pregnant, and we now have a beautiful little boy. I encourage women to get checked sooner rather than later. It may be such an easy fix!"
"I just turned 40 in November and have been married for almost 20 years and this is the first real chance a doctor has given me and my husband to get pregnant. I have PCOS and I don't get cycles or ovulate on my own. My gyn has me on 100 mg of Clomid and I took my second round of pills last night and so far no weird side effects. This is my first round and I'm praying that it works since I'm older. Good luck ladies!"
"Hello all, I just completed my first 5-day cycle of Clomid. My story is a little different then most I’ve read, I have pretty regular periods and I do ovulate, but I keep having miscarriages, and now since my last one in January I am now having trouble getting pregnant. My doctor prescribed I take starting it on day 5 of my menstrual cycle. No bad side effects, I did have a headache and a little fatigue. Now I go back to my doctor on Friday for an ultrasound, not really sure what to expect. I’m so intrigued. I’m really hoping we get pregnant. Praying for everyone success with Clomid and healthy happy babies. Thanks for listening."
"Trying to conceive (TTC) 8 years....I have PCOS at 28 yrs old, took the depo shot for about 2 years would not recommend DEPO to anybody. I bought Clomid at an online pharmacy after seeing a fertility specialist. I wasn't ovulating on my own. Clomid 100 mg first cycle I ovulated but not pregnant, second cycle got pregnant miscarried at 8 weeks, skipped a month, 3rd cycle got Big fat positive test (BFP) so pregnant with Dear Daughter (DD) happy healthy 10 month old now. Definitely works. Now I'm on my first cycle after DD hoping for another BFP."
"Hi girls! Thank you all for sharing your stories! You are very brave!! I'm actually going through this at the time. I'm 31 yrs old and on my second clomid cycle at 100mg. I have PCOS and have been trying to conceive for the past 6 months (I have no children yet). First cycle of clomid failed, my DR put me on this med to induce ovulation since PCOS does not allow me to ovulate regularly. I'm praying this time around God blesses me with a miracle that me and my husband want so much. I'm very optimistic about this and I know it will happen, as I know it will happen for all of you ladies as well! Have faith and I'll be praying for you all!"
"As I told you I took it for just one cycle I missed my period, I had ultrasound at 6 weeks and been told that am having twins, and now I gave birth successfully to twin baby girls at October they are now getting to 3months, thank you Clomid you've done a great job"
"Been trying to get pregnant for the past 10 months, so in March of 2020 my doctor requested for me to do a HSG test to see if my tubes were blocked, but luckily they weren't. So he decided to put me on clomid 100mg, first time trying. Keeping my fingers cross"
"I took clomid last January from day 1-5 of on period to induce ovulation because I have pcos therefore my periods are irregular and don't think I ovulate normally. I got pregnant the next month, unfortunely I lost my baby in May of 2016, I was about 18 weeks. So in June I got a period but kind of long one, not too sure if it was a normal period anyway, after 36 days I had another period which was on june, in July I had my period on the 25th which seems to me like a period so I took clomid again I the first day through the 29th so five day starting from day one of my period, not like day 2-3 like some do. I follow the calendar and it predicted that I will be ovulate around the 3-8th of August, I had intercouse on those day, I'm pregnant 16th"
"On my 3rd month of clomid. (Last one) I am REALLY hoping this would be the month. I only noticed 2 significant side effects from 2 months taking it: I get so bloated for like 3-4 days around ovulation time plus very emotional. I cried a lot. Good luck to us!! Hope we all have success stories to tell."
"Hey guys. I have been reading all of the comments on here. Some have a positive outcome and some not so good. I started my first round of clomid yesterday. I am 38 years old and have one child already age 5. My husband and I have been TTC for the past 1.5 years with no luck. I went to see a fertility dr and he started me on clomid. He stated that my egg count was low. So hopefully this will give me the boost I need."
"I’m 39 and a mother to a 2 yr old healthy boy; thanks to Clomid. I was 22 when I began to try to conceive the natural way. Had 2 early miscarriages; in 2005 and in 2008 from previous partner. Met my husband in 2016 and Started to show signs of anovluation. My MD prescribed clomid at 100 mg. Boom ! Pregnant on 2nd try. I feel having waited this long, my age has made it more difficult to conceive due to low AMH, endometriosis, one blocked tube and pre-diabetic. But I wouldn’t change it for the world. Here I am at 39, trying for baby # 2. Six months of clomid and no luck. Fertility specialist switched to Fermora for first cycle with IUI and still no luck. Took 1 month break due to cyst on right ovary so was prescribed birth control. Now I’m on 2nd IUI but this time giving clomid another try; with our faith in God we pray that I am pregnant ! Reason I’m giving clomid rating of 8 is because the severe pain that I endured during ovulation - even though it is so worth it in the end."
"Hey guys I have PCOS, fibroids took clomid first 50 mg did not get pregnant. Took 100 mg on 2nd. Cycle got pregnant, but miscarried exactly 6 months.. Trying again hoping to have a positive test soon."
"I used to have irregular periods and I really wanted to be a mum so went to a gynecologist and I was prescribed clomid to use on day 3 of my period for 5 days, and to have intercourse days after finishing. I'm happy to say it worked. I got 3 positive pregnancy test and confirmed by the doctor on my 1st prenatal visit. I'm so happy. Baby dust to everyone who is on the journey that I was on."
"Hi Girls. My finance and I have been trying since January with irregular periods and month after month of negative pregnancy tests. I have had every blood test and scan under the sun done and today, FINALLY, I have found out it’s unexplained infertility and I have my course for 100mg Clomid for 3 months. We want our baby so bad I am praying I have success like a lot the stories I am reading on here. Please wish us luck!! x"
"I took Clomid for the first time days 5-9 and the side effects are the worst! I already have heart problems so I thought that's what was going on. I went to the ER for severe chest pain and all tests were negative. After researching I realize it's bad indigestion. I also have Fibro and am used to back pain but Clomid gave me the worst back pain I've ever felt along with nausea and migraines. I have to lay down or walk hunched over so relieve some pain. I've also been extremely fatigued.I had to nap 3 times a day for a few hours and still feel exhausted. My uterus feels so sore and heavy. I'm on cycle day 15 and still showing a flashing (OPK) Ovulation Predictor Kit. Hopefully tomorrow is peak day so I can get pregnant already!"
"I want to review Clomid and Metformin because other people's reviews gave me hope and I want to pay it back. About me: I am 32, UK based, TTC for nearly 3 years,1 miscarriage during that time, PCOS, and high AMH levels. I began taking 50g Clomid (with 1000g Metformin) in September 2021 to induce ovulation and it worked for me first time. I did not get pregnant that month but blood tests confirmed that for the first time in a long time, I had ovulated. I took the same dose in October 2021 and I am currently 5 weeks pregnant!! For me, Clomid has been a true blessing. I took it on days 2-6 of my cycle (starting on the second day of my period) and always just before bed to try and avoid the worst of the side-effects. I did get some hot flushes and vaginal dryness, and the second month I was exceptionally emotional/irritable, but TBH I think that was more about the stress of trying to conceive than the actual medication! Good luck to everyone on this journey xxx"
"I took clomid for the first time they told me to start intercourse since I had started to ovulate ..and take a pregnancy test in two weeks I received my period so I guess it didn't work will try again though. I have PCOS"
"I’m on my 3rd cycle ,due for my period in 5 days I’m hoping it has worked this time, been trying for baby for 10 years had test done it’s unexplained what’s wrong, I know it’s me cos my partner sperm is fine he already had 2 kids, I’m 34 just really want to have a baby, fingers crossed for me"

"I conceived my 1st baby unexpectedly when I was 17 but once it came time to try for baby number 2 we had trouble. I had developed PCOS and didn't have a menstrual cycle for 8 months straight (due to anovulation) so my doctor prescribed Clomid after 18m of no luck. I took 50mg on cycle days 2-6 and conceived my baby boy on cycle day 14(April 2009). He was born at 37 weeks 110% healthy. When we wanted to try for #3 my wonderful OBGYN prescribed Clomid again right away, allowing us to avoid the unnecessary stress of trying with no luck again. So we used 50mg on cycle days 1-5 this time and I conceived my beautiful baby girl on cycle day 21, first cycle again (Sept 2010). She was born at 39 weeks, 10 lbs of perfectness. Clomid was my miracle."
