Whats the next step when clomid doesnt work?

After taking 100mg clomid and no ov my consultant wants to review my treatment and try something else. Iov on first month of clomid(ov'd first month of 50mg clomid and got preg sadly mc'd) then 2 months of 50mg nothing. Upped to 100mg ov'd first month then nothing. I had to have a few months off due to an op. 100mg this month and nothing.
I'm waiting for an appointment to go back to sort it oout. I'm worried about the costs of drugs etc Can anyone help please

Hi maliah09,



Sorry I can't answer your question, I had 6 months of clomid 50mg, then eventually went on to have IVF/ICSI (didn't get pregnant).



I just wanted to wish you luck with your journey. I'm sure someone will be along soon who can give you an answer.



Take care, love, macD xx

Hi Maliah

I think probably the next steps aren't the same for everyone. Personally I went from clomid to IVF but other ladies go to hormone injections or IUI or maybe ovarian drilling as an option. Best bet is to have a chat with your consultant and see what s/he advises.

Good luck.

PS - Have just noticed you have 2 little ones - you should maybe also ring your PCT to see what treatment you might be entitled to - my PCT didn't even fund clomid as we already had a DD but it varies and if you're not having to have clomid privately, you may also be eligible for other treatment.

Hiya,

We weren't eligible for IVF as my DH already had children but I did get clomid and ovarian drilling on the NHS.

I would give them a call and find out what you're entitled too like Pootle suggested.
