    41 and trying to sway pink for one last time

    Hi there
    I was hoping for for some advise on swaying pink .I知 41 and have 1 daughter aged 8 and 4 sons with the youngest being 10 months
    I have been running 4 days a week , skipping breakfast and eating light with a veggie meal at night
    I知 a moderate drinker love champagne wine etc . I have lost a stone since Xmas .
    This will be my fourth cycle trying to conceive now . I知 also taking clomid , fibre and folate
    I drink coffee
    I have been having one attempt at positive opk but not sure if that is leaving it too late for me to conceive
    Looking forward to some replies

    Have you had your FSH checked?

    Most women over 40 are not given Clomid because it can raise FSH very high and reduce egg quality.

    What is your BMI now?

    It is time to switch to every four day method - have unprotected sex every 72 hours starting after your period ends and continuing on till you are certain you've ovulated, even if it means going all the way thru till next period begins.

    My BMI is 20.9
    With regards to egg quality should I take a supplement or a portion of smoked salmon a week
    I don稚 eat eggs , small amount of diary , no milk in coffee
    Should I reduce my alcohol intake ?
    Thanks so much

    You need to not take Clomid unless you know what your FSH is. It's not something a supplement or some salmon can fix, it has a very strong effect so we need to know what your FSH is to start with.

    No more weight loss. Just hold where you are now.

    ARe you eating at least 1500 cals, 40-50 g protein and fat?

    I would meet the calories some days but then my alcohol drinking would bring me up there
    I am using clomid as a pink sway tactic and possibility of twin girls .
    I know that痴 a dream away but was willing to give it a go
    I have been getting my positives on day 13 or 14
    I知 super healthy never catch a cold etc but would get cold sores time to time

    If I had my way, I'd have you on the atomic fertility diet in this thread (about five from the top) as this will be much better for egg quality than anyting a supplement will do (and we have better results with it for swaying too.)

    I understand why you're doing Clomid, but if it is making your egg quality so poor that you cannot conceive with it then it needs to be dropped. A better choice for you would be Femara/letrozole, which has the benefits of Clomid for your sway and not the drawbacks for egg quality.

    Whether to go to e4d plus Clomid or drop the Clomid is up to you. I can't know from here. Some people seem to tolerate the Clomid with no ill effects but many others really see their egg quality tank dramatically on it. I can't know without testing.

    The first thing that needs to go, though, is abstain. I'm assuming your husband is over 40 too and no men over 35 are meant to be doing abstain anyway. Very very bad for sperm quality and likely prevented conception completely.

    I would have you guys on e4d method - unprotected sex every 72 hours starting after your period ends OR your last dose of Clomid/Femara and carrying on till when you're sure you ovulated, even if that means going all the way through till your next period begins.

    I would stick to no more than 2 drinks max per day.
