Hi, my little sugar bears! Back from a break. Hope everyone is doing well and chasing down their baby dreams with vigor and grace.
I'm about to start my very last months of TTC naturally before moving on to DE or adoption. My RE, whom I like quite a bit (K.eefe at NYU) suggested that if I want to consider it, he'd guide me through a few Clomid-assisted cycles as an economical, last-ditch effort at trying with my own eggs. (I can't consider OE IVF or a fully medicated TI cycle since I don't have any insurance coverage for such procedures, and I need to save $$ for DE/adoption)
We'd start a Clomid cycle, then do an ultrasound right before ovulation to see if the medication is actually helping me to develop more follies. If not, we won't bother doing more than one cycle, I'd just go back to TTC naturally, with no meds whatsoever.
I know the prevailing theory is that Clomid isn't ideal for 40+ since it might thin the uterine lining, but I don't know that that fazes me much. Since I'd have a few months--at least--between TTC naturally w/Clomid and a DE attempt, I figure I'd have time to thicken up my uterine lining again. And since I'm looking at doing DE, I"m not worried about how Clomid might affect my FSH, either.
But have any of you tried Clomid after 40? Or, heck, even before 40? Ever? Mostly I'm curious to hear about side-effects, mood swings, changes in your menstrual cycle, any weird bleeding, etc.
