tell me about clomid
I'm going to be 36 in less than a month. I have a 2.5 year old son, and in Feb of this year, we started trying for another. I got preg in May, miscarried in July, preg again in Sept, miscarried in Oct. I had all the tests done (19 vials of blood!), but my OB could find nothing wrong with my hormones, thyroid, blood clotting, chromosomes etc. to point to a reason for the miscarriages. I talked to a reproductive endocrinologist who suggested that I might want to take clomid to ovulate 2 eggs at a time, to speed up the chance of getting pregnant again (given that at my age, my fertility is waning).
Part of me is totally onboard because I want to be pregnant ASAP and my bio clock is ticking like a Big Ben of DOOM. And part of me thinks I could skip it and keep patiently doing what I'm doing (but I'm not very patient).
