Ah, Clomid... I had such mixed emotions about you... I whined on thenest that I was sooo disappointed that my doctor had prescribed Clomid for me. I felt like there it was - I was an infertile, not capable of naturally producing my own offspring. The gals over on thenest were so supportive & it was then that I realized I was being a baby; that this was actually an opportunity for me & my dh, and instead of being mad at my body, I was actually excited. Woo hoo for Clomid!
Oh, here's the complete text of the e-mail my dr sent me prescribing Clomid:
Your labs indicate that you likely did not ovulate this cycle, and you most likely have polycystic ovarian syndrome. You are taking Metformin twice per day now. Let's have you increase it to three times per day. I'll also prescribe Clomid 50mg. You take one tablet a day on days #5-9 of each cycle. It's very simple. I'm leaving for vacation and will return on March 26. If you have any further questions, I can answer them when I return.
