Question for Clomid Experts - 1st Round Ultrasound!

Postby hero7 » Wed May 20, 2015 4:56 pm

Hey there!

I started Clomid 50mg CD3-7 last week. Today I had my CD13 ultrasound. The Doc said there was one follicle on the left ovary measuring 14 (is it mm??). He said it's usually 18-20 before the egg is mature. So he wasn't sure if the egg had already been released or it was still maturing and would be released this weekend. He seemed more unsure when I told him I had gotten +OPKs on Monday night & Tues morning (CD11-12).

He suggested we BD on Friday & Sunday this week.

Earlier today I had a bunch of EWCM which I noticed when wiping (doesn't usually happen, I usually have to check for it!).

Because of the EWCM & the +OPKs I am thinking we should BD TODAY too (we already BD'd Sun & Mon) What if the egg was just released and the follie shrunk back down to 14 already?

What do you all think?

Yes the follies are measured in mm,14mm is very small to be considered mature,wasn't ur doctor worried?And how in Gods name he doesn't know the difference between corpus luteum and a follie?I don't believe the follie gets smaller after you O,I had the chance to watch my corpus luteum 72h after the follie breaked,it was the same size but the doc told me I already O in the last 72h,he explained but I don't remember,it was a bit different but in the same place and size!!Do you have a follow up ultrasound?When in doubt just BD!!But at 14mm there a chance that follie isn't mature enough for an egg!!!I did read the clomid can give false +opk's!!
