I think I'll be testing on Wed 22nd Sept, Day 28.

Haven't had a regular cycle so not really sure when to test.  If I get a neg will test again end of Sept and then start Clomid cycle again.

Hi Laine and girls.

Am cd 25 today and think I will test on Friday 11th. Not long to go now and scared as hell of doing the test (even though i am mad to do one!) TTC really messes up your head eh?!

GOOD LUCK TO ALL OF YOU,  LOVE JOHANNA

Bit confused about when I will test.  Docs told me to come in for a blood test tomorrow on day 25 (14 days after HSG jab) but I don't want to.  Therefore, I was told that I could do my own test a week after that on day 32  - which seems a long time to wait!).  I'm going to see if I can hold out which will mean testing on 17th if the  ^witch^ doesn't get me first.

good luck everyone.

Hi Johanna,

Just read your reply on the thread you started yesterday asking where all the 2ww clomid girls were.  See above for where I am - sounds like we are testing around the same time if we can both hold out that long.  Just wanted to say hang on in there.  It was uncanny to read your post cos it is like I had written it about myself.  I'm terrified of how the bfn makes me feel so I think we should both try to hold out as long as possible before we test!

Hi there Rachel.

I think you are right about holding out for a few extra days. I am ringing for my progesterone results tomorrow and if it is bad I dont think I will bother even doing a hpt.

Can i ask you about the Hsgjab you had this month? How lmng are you on it, what does it involve, is it given in conjunction with clomid??? Also how long will a person be on it if nothing happens? Sorry for  questions it is just that I will be having the same if nothing happens in this month or next.

All the best Johanna xx

Hi everyone - I haven't been on the site for a few days so am catching up.  Well, the  ^witch^ got me again.  AF arrived yesterday so was back at the hospital this morning for a blood test and scan and will be taking the horrible clomid again this evening. I threw a right wobbly yesterday about it all.  I'm a very impatient person and I just got so angry about it all.  If the clomid hasn't worked in four times, why will it work in 6?  I wonder whether i'm wasting my time??

Johanna - I know how you feel hon.  The time before last when I tested I just was so devastated that I didn't test this month and wouldn't go to the hospital for a test either!  I saw your post about the jab.  I'm not sure why some people take it and others don't - I was given the choice on the first cycle and thereafter told to take it.  However, I am always told that I won't necessarily need to take it - it depends on my blood results.  They can tell a lot from the blood test - like whether the egg is good quality even.  I have pcos so I guess my problem is that I don't release my eggs properly and they just get stuck to the ovary, forming the classic pearl necklace appearance of lots of little unreleased eggs around the ovary.  This might explain why opk's always said I was ovulating prior to me starting treatment.

The jab is really simple - it is sub-cutaneous (?) which I think means under the skin.  You just have to inject into a bit of flesh - I grab a bit of thigh but one time a friend got me in the top of my bum  ;D

You could get your dh /dp to do it but mine is useless with stuff like that - he has a real fear of needles  ::)

the jab costs about £8 and you only need it once.  you are told when to do it and it is usually when the doc decides the egg is big enough.  THe jab causes the egg to be released I think about 12 hours after you take it.  you take it in the evening - it is sometimes referred to as the late night injection.  hope that helps but feel free to IM me if you want to know anything else.  Good luck to you and everyone

Aww no nicky.  Flippin witch.

Well in answer to your question I was put on 50mgs clomid in I think april 2001 after trying for over a yr.  I was on it 6mth and gyny upped it to 100mgs, was on that for 6mth too.  Then I was taken off it when I moved back up North as obviously I had to change hospitals.  I was lucky enough to be referred to the Fertility clinic at the centre for life in Newcastle they did there own tests to verify my records and here I am on the 150mgs and if the witch arrives this month I will be starting my 7th course.  I am allowed 12 mths because I had a break basically.

So there you go.  Good luck this cycle hun am thinking of you.

To all those waiting to test good luck hope you get your  ^reiki^.

Love Helen

Hi girls

Sorry to hear about the negative results.

Well, today is CD26 and I've just got the faintest ever positive result using a First Response test!!!!  OMG, I had really bad stomach cramps day 14 & 15 and lots of vaginal dryness (TMI sorry).

I just hope the test is correct, I will be doing at least two more over the coming days!

I am now focused on the fact that it could be wrong and af could arrive at any minute!

Oh well, wish I could sleep until Thursday and do another test then!

Good luck to all.

Pauline
