Hi Ladies,

I TTC twins about 5 1/2 years ago, I managed to purchase some clomid online and on second clomid only cycle I got pregnant - singleton little girl. Although on the scan they did indicate a lot of follicles, but only one released?

I been looking in on the site on and off over the years. It has gotten much more difficult to purchase the fertility drugs, and most companies wanting you to transfer via money transfers etc, which makes me very suspicious and caused me to by pass until I found a trustworthy company, which still hasn't happened. Being in the UK they have changed the rules on what can be posted now too.

Anyways I am 36 live in England, had no problems ovulating or getting pregnant although Summer 2013 I had a three week period and erratic cycles since that I went to docs. My Mother had an early menopause at 32 and I figured I as heading the same way. They ran blood tests etc, but didn't think menopause was a factor and sent me for a scan. I was told that I had PCOS and that getting pregnant could be difficult etc. I do wonder if this may have been due to the Clomid I took ???

Anyways having watched irish lass and others obtain twins over the past few years It appears the key thing I didn't have was injectibles etc. I have managed to source Clomid again and this time 3 injections of Pregnyl. Looking for some advice / thoughts / guidance - I see that progesterone is used by some throughout cycles, but unsure if I am able to obtain this in the UK?

Any advice and info greatly appreciated :)

Great! Especially if you had multiple follicles. Usually, in a natural cycle (or even clomid) only the most mature one will release. The Ovidrel will force them to all release. Have you see the page on when to trigger?

Hi 1901,

Thanks for the info on trigger. I know I naturally ovulate it appears on CD17 however I am wondering if I take Clomid on days 33-7 if I would then trigger two days before CD14?? I am sure I read somewhere that it makes you ovulate 5-7 days later?

I have also seen that people do another trigger after the ovulation trigger, and am not sure why this is done?

The trigger after ovulation is to increase progesterone levels. It's usually about 2000 ius and you wouldn't need a cream or oil if you did that.
