Clomid & The Importance of Fluoride

Today was my last day of Clomid, CD9 (or 10) if you count my stupid cycle starting in the grey zone. Because of this, I am going to start my OPK today.

It is really strange, I had all these ideas of what taking Clomid would be like, that I would feel something happening inside...but other than crying A LOT, there is not much else to report.

I am scheduled for an ultrasound on 12/18 to see what IS happening, unless of course I get an LH surge before that...I am nervous that I am going to miss the surge! What time is best to test...I have heard it all??

AND, yesterday I got the joy of writing my dentist a check for $2,100! You see, I grew up on well water before it was fluorinated and therefor have really f'cked up teeth. They are really straight and really white and REALLY full of cavities! I finally had to bite the bullet and get two ceramic inlays ($$$) and then two minor (new) cavities filled. I also am supposed to start using Rx toothpaste which is ridiculously expensive - between that and my vitamins, and my husbands vitamins (RE has him on Vitamins E & C, a multi and co enzyme Q-10) it adds up FAST!

Hi click..thanks for visiting my blog at http://infertilitysuckssoletsvent.

The clomid never really affected me but it never helped me get pregnant either..
The clomid challenge test did not yield good results for me at all and I am not eligible to do IVF...
so good luck on the clomid to you--perhaps it will work better in your case! --Audrey

Click, where are you in Colorado? I'm in Denver...

yes, we have absolutely NO coverage so be conservative with how many blood draws and tests they do on you--don't let them barrage you with tests or you'll end up broke!

All I had with Clomid was wicked hot flashes! Oh it was horrible. I didn't resond to the Clomid at all...only one follicle.
Hope you have better results.

I'm still hoping Clomid will work for me. My RE says I respond well to it. But responding well and inducing my ovulation doesn't guarantee pregnancy.

Ah yes, clomid-- when I tried that I cried incessantly and nothing made sense. I felt as though I was speaking a foreign language and no one else had the code. I wish you luck on your cycle.

Thank you for all of your comments, it is just so nice to talk to people who have a clue what it feels like to struggle getting pregnant...

I am getting more used to blogging and am trying to keep up with it...I am wishing you all the best and will keep checking in with all of you!
