Tamoxifen - any experiences?

Hi everyone

I'm just about to start a cycle with tamoxifen (40mg) and was wondering if anyone had any experiences of this drug?

I had 2 x cycles of clomid (50mg, 100mg) but didn't ovulate and hated the side effects so am trying tamoxifen for one cycle (before doing injectables). I have PCOS...

Would love to hear from you!

Hello
I have used tamoxifen in the past. It was a few years back but if I remember correctly it had similar side effects to clomid. I used tamoxifen for a different reason other than fertility but I lived to tell the tale!!!

Good luck!

:hi: there...



It's so nice to see someone else in the same boat as me for a change...

I too was put on Clomid, and didn't react, so I've just had a cycle on Tamoxifen...



It hasn't worked with me, and I haven't produced any follies again :-( (I have tracking scans - do you?) Cos I too have PCOS!!

I questioned what's next, and they too said, injectibles... How am I gunna inject myself? ?(



Anyways hun, we should stay in touch if that would be okay cos we're on the same path it seems :happy:

Hey Amy

Sorry only just seen your message. Thats weird - I went for my day 10 tracking scan today and no follicles bigger than 8mm - gutted!!

So yes, injectibles next .... seeing consultant on Monday to hopefully get the prescription... am going to try and talk him into going straight for IVF but don't fancy my chances!

Def let me know how you're getting on! Its nice to know I'm not the only one wth stubbon ovaries and seemingly resistant to fertility drugs!

Keep in touch 88) Abi x
