TTC - Trying to Conceive TTC - Trying to Conceive

Should I skip this month or give it a shot?

I can start either clomid 100,150 or femara Tom. Hubs had low sperm at his test 6.9 mil. He started fertility blend a few weeks ago. The clomid question is should I just do 100 since I Od twice on that dose? We did 150 before we knew about his sperms. Thanks !

If you O on the dose, raising it can make you hyperstimulate , I believe. My RE says she's seen that one time in her years of practicing. I Oed 4 times in 50mg and got pregnant the first 2 times but miscarried. This month we did 100mg and I should O this weekend. Lol she was weary about raising it but she told me because I was raising my risk of twins and all the other normal clomid risks. I'm rambling sorry. Worked 12 hours straight lol good luck

Would you medicate or let the ovaries rest for a month?

how many times have you done clomid? If it's 6 or more cycles I'd switch to femara. They won't be resting anyways. lol they are always working. These meds just give them a jumpstart. Lol

Yea I would go with what was working!! Although if you can do the femara it has far less risk and side effects!

I agree with doing the lowest possible dose that works for you. Good luck!

I think the 100 would be just fine since you are o'ng from it. Sine I do not take clomid here is a bump for some better advice

good luck fx'd this will be speedy for you and a bfp to come.

If it were me id do another clomid. Because you only have 20% chance of getting pregnant each month. Didn't you get a low sperm count back? I wouldn't switch meds of you're ovulating. I'd try another round or two.
