Best Days to take Clomid Results*tabulated from clomid board

Postby holleigh » Tue Jul 15, 2008 10:59 am

OK so I did not realize I could find this info elsewhere! Thank you for pointing that out to me.

I went through all the posts and tabulated the results for anyone interested, I figured I would post it in this thread.

Here is the breakdown of which dose and day combo resulted in a BFP:

50mg 2-6 resulted in 4 BFP
50mg 3-7 resulted in 19 BFP
50mg 4-8 resulted in 5 BFP
50mg 5-9 resulted in 21 BFP

100mg 1-5 resulted in 1 BFP
100mg 2-6 resulted in 3 BFP
100mg 3-7 resulted in 12 BFP
100mg 4-8 resulted in 2 BFP
100mg 5-9 resulted in 15 BFP

150mg 3-7 resulted in 5 BFP
150mg 5-9 resulted in 2 BFP

Hi Guys!
I posted this on the clomid board too, but so far no replies either place.

I am hoping this info will help those of us new to clomid to increase our odds of actually getting some BFP's!!

Please let us know!
Thanks...

Well I took clomid CD5-9 and got pregnant on round 3. Unfortunately m/c at 5w2d but that was more than likely due to thin lining issues (or just random chromosomes or something) than because I took it CD5-9. I really don`t think it matters when you take it. You should just take it when your doc suggests.

Thanks Eren. I am sorry about your m/c. I have suffered 5 myself, so I totally understand.

This month I am taking 81mg baby asprin to help keep my lining thicker. I have read a lot of findings that suggest it does actually matter (in terms of conception) which days you take the clomid. I understand that generally speaking OB's will prescribe days 5-9 because this is the 'old school' or 'medical school' typical way of thinking.

But some recent studies suggest taking it earlier is more beneficial. Also it seems that RE's are more apt to prescribe it earlier as well.

I was just seeking some realistic feedback from women who have had success on clomid. I appreciate your response and wish you luck getting pg again with a sticky bun!!

Thanks,
Holleigh

Have you looked through the clomid bfps page? I think they had a question on what CDs you took the clomid?
