Provera/Clomid Cycle Day 12 Follicles

Postby Morgan25 » Fri Oct 31, 2014 11:25 am

Hi everyone!

This past cycle I took Provera to start my period and I took Clomid on days 5-9. I had to go get my Day 12 ultrasound to measure my follicles today. I had one on my left ovary and three on my right. The one on my left is small but all three on the right are 12mm. Is that a good size for day 12? My doctor thinks I'm going to ovulate maybe day 15 or 16 if I do. I really hope they grow big enough to ovulate. This is my first cycle on Clomid so if I don't ovulate this cycle she said she would up me to 100mg Clomid. I'm kind of new to this so does anyone else have slow growing follicles out there??

Me! First round I did 50mg Clomid, but between CD9 and 11 I had a 12mm follie that didn't grow at all. That cycle ended annovulatory. This cycle I did 100mg Clomid. I had a scan at CD11, which showed two follies, one was 12.3mm, the other 13.4mm. I went in for a repeat scan the next morning on CD12, and the smaller had grown to 13mm, and the larger one was now 14.7mm. So basically one only grew 0.7mm in 24 hours, and the other grew 1.3mm. They say follicles should be growing 2mm a day. My GYN said I have slow growing follicles so she cancelled my trigger. I still ovulated on CD16. Currently in TWW.

I think your doctor is saying you could ovulate CD15 based on follicles growing 2mm a day. So CD13 it should be 14mm, CD14 should be 16mm, then CD15 would be 18mm - which is the minimum they like to see for a mature egg. I'm surprised they didn't do a repeat scan to see how the follicles are growing. Anyhow, just look out for all your fertile signs, take OPK's etc, so you can time BD correctly. It's quite common for people to be ovulating around CD18-20ish on Clomid, from what I've seen. So don't worry.

Thanks so much Calz! She didn't want to do a follow up because its my first round of Clomid and I live pretty far away. She said to make sure I start using the opks starting Sunday. I've been using them since like day 10 of my cycle though this time around. Back when I was having a regular period I ovulated on day 16 so I won't be too worried until I get to day 21 of my cycle. I do hope the follicles get big enough so I do ovulate this cycle! Good luck to you!!! It makes me feel better there are others out there.

Just an update! I am ovulating today on CD 18! And it really hurts on both sides so I'm pretty sure more than one egg released. I'm so excited!

This really provided me with a bunch of info! I'm currently on day 8 of 10 days of Provera, then going in on CD 3 for blood and day 13 for ultrasound. Clomid was brought up and may be next step and your post gives me hope!
