42 and just starting clomid - anyone else over 40 and does clomid work?
I am 42 years old and after 2 years of not getting pregnant - being told I had one tube blocked and was not ovulating I managed to get pregnant in January 2007 but sadly miscarried in February 2007 at 5 weeks. I was devastated but at least I had proved I could get pregnant.
I don't know anyone who understands how I feel, and have been trying to have a bay for 4 years. I am now off work, depressed and nearly able to get myself out of bed in the mornings.
I feel selfish as I have a wonderful 5 yr old daughter who is the light of my life. I want to enjoy her and be there to enjoy her childhood, but after being diagnosed with PCOS 4 years ago and spending a fortune on pregnancy tests, I can't help but feel my family is incomplete.
I work with the health visitors for under 5year olds so see new horns everyday. Parents who don't love their baby's, or are drug addicts etc. it just seems so unfair.
I hope to be able to chat to people who understand how I feel.
I am 31, and my husband is almost 38. We have been TTC for 5years. I was diagnosed with PCOS in February of 2011. We have tried Clomid, Femara, injections and 2 IUI's all with little luck, so i saw online about a spiritual healer name ashra and i just had the mind set that there was not such thing as spiritual healer and pregnancy spell and cleanse , but i was out of options and i tried this online spell caster and requested for this spiritual healing and pregnancy spell and to my greatest surprise within the 2month i became pregnant and the doctor said it is a miracle they could not find anything as pcos or infertility in me, to clear the doubts of others out there who had the mind set of mine that there was no such thing as spiritual healing and pregnancy spell should think again, am a living testimony of the miracle and blessing of ashra spells , there is never any harm in trying , for those going through similar situation as i was can contact ashra on email : email@example.com, i pray baby dust on you all
i have been trying to get pregnant for many years but it doesn't seems to work , i and my hubby has done all the test and the doctor steel could not get the reason why am not getting pregnant , until i was researching online how to get pregnant fast and natural ,it was then i saw so many comments and testimonies of different women and families from different parts of the world testifying how ashra has help them with the powerful witch craft destroyer powder and protection powder, that destroys any form of witch craft and making the impossible possible .then i decided to contact ashra and ask about the substance and the powder , i did request for it and it was sent to me via delivery agency and within 3days the powder and substance was delivered to me , with the instruction for various situation and how to use it , i did follow the instruction and before i had intercourse with my hubby i blew the powder into the air and around my house that very night , some few months later i fell ill and went to do test and my doctor confirmed it that i am pregnant , i really appreciate ashra for the good work and joy you brought into my family, just like i saw other peoples comment and i was encourage so am also putting mine out so that it will encourage some one other there crying , you can contact ashra and request for your own witch craft destroyer powder and wonder powder okay on email : firstname.lastname@example.org or call +2348058176311

Hi I read your post about being 45 and clomid working for you...I'm 45 and started my first round of clomid after my cycle which was 9/13/13, my doctor had me on the 5-9 day of clomid, and so I took the clomid during this time, and I'm now waiting to see if it worked...my period was due on 10/4/13, nothing as of yet, but don't want to get my hopes up high as I've read on other forums..periods can come late...but can you tell me what you did and your positive results? thanks so much..Rasela my email is email@example.com
Hi my name is Rasela and I too am 45 yrs old and started clomid last week and waiting to see if I will ovulate...I did the 5-9 cycle per my doctor, did you get pregnant after your first try with clomid? thanks
I know this is a while since you did the clomid course, can you say how many cycles did you do? was there any side effects?
Thanks in advance
Hi, I turn 49 on Monday and only been trying to conceive for a few mths. I am eager to try Clomid and have a specialist appt next mth. Do you think I am too old to be trying Clomid?? I hope the specialst will advise me to take it or something similar.
I just want to know if I've left it go too long I am truly in love for the first time in my life, my partner and I both have a child from previous relationships but the children don't live with us. We just want to have a child together.
I just need someone to talk to.
I am 48 we have one son. After my son was born I was not able to conceive anymore, I have spent years back and forth to my GP looking for answers. She has never referred me for help. I eventually went to a private doctor who told me I will have to use donor eggs.
I am about to try IVF but I keep thinking I am too old.
I am 47 and has been ttc for eight years. I know it will happen and will be trying clomid for the first time, any advice from anyone?
Please post back to me!
Hi! I am about to turn 48 so I know how you feel! Personally I think we all are on different journeys, like you I only recently found real love and just got married at 41 and miscarried around 42! I think we definetly still have a chance! I recently tried Maca and it did help for a while but I lost my mom in January so I dropped everything and depression set in. I also started teaching a very rough group of middle school kids. Now that summer is here I really want to start ttc again! I was so close before! Now I too am wondering about Clomid! I had researched it awhile back and I was worried about side effects at my age! Before mom passed I felt like the Maca and praying was really working! I am at a lost now. Are you spiritual? I don't want to say the wrong thing. I am quite spiritual, but I am not perfect I don't go to church regularly. Please write me, I really need a support buddy and I think we could help each other!

hello, I am 45 and about to try clomid for the first time, I am very scared but I feel this will be worth it if it works ... I know how you feel being this age... been trying to conceive for 8 years ... fertility doctor told me there is nothing wrong with me or hubby ... said no reason I am not pregnant. ! sounds crazy .... I finally realized that if it's not in Gods plan, then I have to accept it. * I am a believer ( dont know if you are) it is still hard though, I have wanted to be a mother since I was a teen. I guess I am looking at it like this, maybe this will be the time it was meant to be, if it doesnt work, I will accept it. only a higher authority knows. at this point, it cant hurt to try the clomid. if it works I would love it, instant family and I have always wanted identical twins, I would be extremely happy to have twins .... it would definately be a blessing !! but cant say I am not scared ... I am, have to admit that. but it can only work or not work right ? I hope to hear from you, maybe we can be inspiration for eachother. I pray for you that it works or that you are already pregnant. I will be starting the clomid when my next cycle hits which is anyday ... a little spiratic now at my age. take care for now. Judy
My name is Kathleen. Congratulations on finding love.
From a very young age, (no real reason, just a gut feeling and fear) I did not believe I would be able to have children. I married at 23. I was on birth control the first 6 months of our marriage, and it took us some time to conceive. I had my first son at 29. It retrospect, what a blessing....I was more patient and ready to be a parent. That was 1994. I had another son in 1996 and another son in 2000.
Sadly, I miscarried in July 2002. I was devestated. I remember driving home thinking it was a girl because I wasn't feeling sick like I did with the other pregnancies. I miscarried at 7 weeks. So....I remind (gently), those women who are struggling in their first trimester to be grateful for the nausea....it's a gift of reassurance from God that everything is developing as it should be.
One thing I did not realize...the physical loss comes first, but hte emotional sadness and loss did not impact me until about 6 months later.
Since I lost that baby, my husband and I have not used any form of birth control. I feel like I am missing a child and although I just turned 46, I do not feel ready to close that door. I heard someone mentioning clomid the other day and i wonder if it is a possibility for me. What have your learned?
This is the first chat room I have participated in. Your message touched my heart.
I'm on my 3rd round now, started with 50 mg. days 5-9,
2nd was 100 mg.
this time im doing 100 mg.days 3-7
what did you take, when and for long??
Hi I'm 45 yrs old too...just started my first round of clomid this month after my period, days 5-9 and now just waiting to see what happens..my husband and I are so ready to be parents and pray that all will be fine...as with you and everybody on this forum...I was having regular periods...only irregular factor was that it would come at the beginning or end of each month...but I had them (periods) every month...I hope clomid works for us...good luck!
I have two children from my first marriage. Both children are grown and absolutely wonderful. I never thought I'd marry again, but my husband is 35 and just retired from the Army. He has no children and wants nothing more than to have a baby of our own. So after a year with no resulting pregnancy, I'm trying Clomid and really hope it works. I had a abdominal scan when I had my kidney stones about a year ago and the physician said it looks like one of my ovaries is starting to shrivel up - how can that be?? Forty-two is very YOUNG and a perfect age to have a child. I hope the clomid will boost my egg release so my husband and I can bring new life into this world to share our love. Has anyone else had any luck on Clomid after 40?
