    So happy to say I am finally getting somewhere with TTC. We are on our 16th month of trying and 3rd month on clomid. I've been going in for daily bloodwork and ultrasounds and the tech seen that although the clomid was helping me to produce mature follicles, they were not releasing an egg so today I got the hcg trigger shot that forces my body to release that egg in 36hours. I'm so excited and finally feel I may just get pregnant in the next few months. Has anyone had experience with the trigger shot with clomid. Should I expect any bad side effects?

    Just wanted to say that this section is for the ladies who have been TTC for years. There is a general TTC section too you can post in. You may get more support from that section then from here.

    Good luck.

    I'm assuming you mean Ovidrel (sp), I've given it to myself lots of time (hasnt works for me personally) BUT no side effects.

    I would post there although many have only been trying for maybe a few months and haven't seeked infertilty treatment so they would not have the answers to my questions since I am currently on two different treatments. I know almost everything there is about ttc since i've been trying for almost a year and half...dont mean to sound rude. Just want some personal experience from those who are taking fertility drugs because they have been trying for years....


    Thanks you everyone for the support. Its a waiting game now at 5dpo.

    Well onto month 17. Trigger shot and clomid did not work. Now onto femara with clomid with daily bloodwork and ultrasounds and see if I need the trigger shot again. Feel like I'm in the standstill with ttc while everyone around me is pregnant by accident or got it on their first month. what can ya do......

    I had that happen as well when we were going through fertility treatments. We were fortunate to have them work out in our favour. I wish you all of the best.

    did you have many side effects. With the clomid I got bad hot flashes and headaches. The doctor said thats why its probably best to keep me at 50mg of clomid and just add the femara. My lining is also not the greatest...heard that may help. How long were you on the combined treatments?
