Arrow Clomid/Metformin/Provera

Hello everybody. I was diagnosed with PCOS about 3 years ago. I recently went to a fertility specialist and he put me on Clomid. I currently already take metformin everyday, and then Provera the last 10 days of the month to start my period. My first day of Clomid was August 11th and the last day was August 15. On the 12th (19th) and 13th(20th) day I took ovulation tests and it's showing that I'm not ovulating. I was told to take the ovulation tests between the 12th and 16th day (from the beginning of my period). I guess I could be getting ahead of myself because technically I have about 3 more days to see if I ovulate. But it was a real let down to see on those 2 tests I wasn't ovulating. As I am sure alot of you can relate. But I was wondering, has anyone not ovulated at all on Clomid? I would just like to hear some stories like mine so I don't get too in the dumps over this!!!! Thanks everyone!

Oh by the way... while I am on clomid, my side effects were major hot flashes, I didn't feel to great, and I believe it caused me to have some diarrhea.
*** I also forgot to ask. if I am on Provera should i take it the last 10 days of the month as I always do, even though we will be waiting to see if I'm pregnant? That way it wont delay the process if I'm not and I can continue having my period, etc?!?!?!?

Re: Clomid/Metformin/Provera

Hi,

I have had PCOS symptoms since i was 19 and i am now 32. I was only diagnosed about 7 years ago. I have been taking metfomin 500mg 3xs daily for the past 2 years. I also take clomid and provera(10 each month-but not every month). The first month on clomid , i did not ovulate. I have ovulated the next three months though. I was on 50 mg of clomid for three months and this month i was upped to 100 mg. I would definitely ask your doctor about waiting on the provera. I didnt take mine until i was sure that i didnt ovulate. I didnt ask my doctor but i just decided not to chance it. Good luck and i look forward to hearing from you.

HELLO! Thank you for replying, I almost gave up on this website.
I also should be taking the metformin twice a day on a daily basis. But when I started taking the 500mg twice daily it was making me feel really crappy. I had diarrhea and just felt sick. I know those are the side effects of that but I just could handle it. I was going to the bathroom like 4-5 a day. So I stopped taking it =/ After my first month of Clomid and seeing that I wasn't ovulating I gave up on that too. My husbands insurance doesn't cover anything to help me get pregnant so I figured bag this whole pregnancy thing until we are SUPER baby hungry.
I did go to this new doctor and she told me not to take the provera again until day 15 or whatever and I know I am NOT pregnant. But seems as though (like with everything else) that the Dr.'s and Nurses usually say something different than all the others.
But I was wondering, if you did ovulate 3 months after the first month, how come the Dr upped your dosage to 100mg from 50mg????
Anywho, thanx for replying!!!!!

Re: Clomid/Metformin/Provera

Well here is my strory.

I have been ttc for 2 years and my problem was that I did not ovulate, I was put on clomid 50mg and I ovulated the first time round, the Dr told me it takes about three cycles to get pg. I took clomid for three cycles and ovulted all three times with no pg. I then ha to take a break for two months and start clomid again. The 4 round I got my BFP but sadly it ended with a blighted ovum. I then took another round of clomid and did not react at all, no ovulation. I went to a RE three weeks ago and was diagnosed with PCOS. My insulin levels were at 15 day 3 of my cycle, my RE did some ovarian drilling last week to break down some of the androgen levels, I am hoping that it has worked....only time will tell . My Re has put me on glucophage and BCP for this month and when AF shows I will starts with Gonal-F injections. I am really hoping that I will get my BFP by the end of November.

I also suffered from severe hot flushes, weight gain and nausea. I am so glad that I do not have to take it again. The thing with clomid is you cannot take it for longer than 6 cycles or so I have heard.


I hope this helps

Charlene
