    I took clomid and metformin together. That coupled with cycle monitoring (internal ultrasounds), I got pregnant! It turned out that I ovulated way later than you generally do on that drug so the first month they decided to do the internal ultrasound I got pregnant.

    I also took metformin paired with Clomid. I took Clomid days 5-9 and conceived the first time. They did internal ultrasounds around 'expected' ovulation time to see if I would release an egg, as I normally do not ovulate. Metformin paired with Clomid has less chance of miscarraige.

    Metformin is also used to help women with PCOS conceive. It is used to help regulate cycles and paired with Clomid has better successes.

    I have PCOS as well. It is a drug typically used for diabetes but also works for people with PCOS as well.

    I've taken clomid days 3-7 I've had it in all three doses and I've had it paired with Femara as well. It hasn't worked for me yet but it produces A LOT of follicles for me

    Both of mine are clomid babies. For me it took several cycles each time - increasing the dose each time (days 3-7) and my 2nd child was clomid + femara.

    I took clomid on days 3-7 paired with femara day 3 and had difficulty producing one mature folicle and when I did produce one I would need an hcg trigger shot to push the egg out. I'm on femara day 3-7 now and still only produced one follicle but ovulated on my own. Some people have better responses with clomid and others with femara..after 9 months of clomid I'm figuring this out lol...hopefully clomid is the right one for you! Good luck!

    Also like to add that a side ffect of clomid is it can dry up your cervical mucus. I noticed it more when I went on 100mg. So to help get it back to help keep those swimmers alive for longer is taking evening primrose capsules 1500-3000 mgs (usually only need 1500). You take it starting cd1 and stop at ovulation. Or robitussin helps but I dont know the dosage...i think you only start taking that a couple days before ovulation.
