I am inexperienced with clomid but was under the impression that you should be closely monitored when on it. It doesn’t seem like a good idea to attempt to order it online and roll the dice with what happens next.
I’m very sorry that you had a miscarriage. It sounds very traumatic, and I’m so sorry for your loss. It doesn’t seem like there’s a way to safely handle this with an insurance lapse coming. Have you looked into COBRA or some kind of continuing coverage? I’m wondering what happens if you were to get pregnant and then did not have coverage during the early parts of your pregnancy.
I am truly wishing you the best. If you are dissatisfied with your current doctor, I would take steps to find a new one. If you have fertility concerns, and you’re clearly concerned that age is playing a part in all of this, maybe you should see if an RE would fit the bill instead of an OBGYN.
I would definitely not order clomid off the internet. You should be closely monitored while on clomid. Coupled with your PCOS chances of multiples while on Clomid are really high. Also--ditto Patsy Baloney, getting pregnant while not having insurance sounds like a terrible idea.
A close friend recently confided in me that she started clomid without be monitored. It did work, but she's now pregnant with twins. If your OB says they don't want you to be pregnant after 40 then I would guess they also wouldn't want you pregnant with multiples.
Also--testing progesterone is not standard for a naturally conceived baby. There's really no way to know whether it was your progesterone levels or not.
