    Cocoon – my fertility issues are different from yours, but from what I understand about IVF, it can often take several attempts in order to find a protocol that works best for you and achieve a pregna more »

    Congrats, tc!! And I'll tentatively add to the good news... it looks like my latest clomid/IUI worked. First beta was yesterday, and I was a bit taken aback when the nurse described me as "very pregna more »

    Jennifyr - I second fra's comment about your right to privacy. I work in a very small office and have been taking a lot of time for infertility treatments, so I totally understand how hard it is to fl more »

    Oh wow, CookieM, sounds like life has taken you on a wild ride!  So sorry to hear about the cancer, but glad that the prognosis for a full recovery is good. And congratulations on the BFP! The timing more »

    I'm almost in the 2ww... Just had my first ever IUI to make the most of this last clomid cycle. My RE said there's about a 12% chance that it'll work, though, so we're gearing up for injects/IUI in De more »

    My current RE considers me "unexplained" – 16 months active TTC with excellent timing, clear HSG, normal CD3 blood, normal SA. I've never been pregnant, so no m/c or anything like that.  I'm on my 3rd more »

    Crap. I'm so sorry, C&B. I'm not sure if this will help, but I went to the Bay State RESOLVE conference this past weekend, and attended a really good session on "Why Infertility Shouldn't be Unexplain more »

    Thanks, Alf and kar. Yeah, it felt like an intense ocular migrane (I've had minor ones before), and that's how I described it to the nurse. She said to keep an eye on things, and to let them know if i more »

    Bumping the Clomid thread to ask about side effects. Anyone else get acne? My skin looks horrible - back, neck and chest look like a total war zone. How about visual side effects? I've noticed that on more »

    I haven't looked into any Resolve events, but I've visited a counselor at the Domar Center (Boston IVF) and was really happy with that experience. If things don't work out in the next couple of months more »

    Kar - I've recently learned that some people very close to me were conceived with the help of Clomid, so singletons do happen. Either way, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it'll work for me. Thank more »

    As I deal with my own fertility issues, I find that success stories of people who've had successful pregnancies after dealing with infertility are really inspiring.  I looked around and didn't see a t more »

    I just started Clomid this cycle and am only on CD8, but my RE told me to expect a later ovulation and a longer cycle. I'd call your RE's office and ask one of the nurses. Also, it can't hurt to poas more »

    (Possibly dumb) question for those of you who have had CD3 bloodwork done... Does it need to be exactly on CD3? Looks like AF will arrive for me in the next day or so, just as I am leaving to spend a more »

    Hi guys! Soxgirl – The late period fake outs totally stink! I feel your pain... Scorpio – Hope that your wait isn't too much longer, and that your cycles even out. Novembride - IMO, I'd ditch the pill more »
