Follicle growth rate on clomid

Postby LeahsMom » Sun Apr 24, 2016 11:17 am

Hi Ladies!

So I'm on my second round of Clomid. First time it was 50mg and all seemed normal, I ovulated by day 16 and had 5 follicles and one mature egg. This cycle I'm on 75mg and today is day 15. My opk is very very negative. On day 12 I had two follies both 12mm on either side. Went back on day 14 (yesterday) and my right had grown to almost 16mm. My left had 13mm and a new follie at 12mm I believe.

However when I went in today they said my right follie shrunk to 14.4mm and my left follies were now at 13mm and 23mm!!!!! Is that even possible???!! I am freaking out and was really hoping to O from my right this cycle. I am praying it is just the difference in techs!

Anyone else experience such rapid growth?? I am also not ovulating yet but with a 23mm follicle you'd think I would be.

HELP!!!

HAHA Leilani - :hb: Thank you!

I'll update in case anyone is ever in the same predicament.

My right follicle did either shrink or stay the same on my scan on CD 14 because when I went back on CD 15, it had grown back to 16mm. Today, CD16, it is at 17mm and mature. My left follicle which was measured at 23mm (grown an astounding 10mm in 23 hours!) was measured at just 21mm the following day, CD15. So obviously it must've been a measuring error with the tech. Still, a huge growth rate for that follie! It is at 22mm today, Day 16 and is also mature.

I was triggered today with Ovidrel, so both eggs should be released in 36 hours! AAAAAHHHHH!
