Clomid challenge test?

Postby AndiA108 » Wed Oct 12, 2016 11:34 am

Has anyone gone through the "clomid challenge test"? About to start this cycle. Wondering is there are any success stories or what to expect. Been on 50mg of clomid. Bumping up to 100mg day 5-9, testing bloodwork on day 3 and 10.

Hi girls,

What is the Clomid Challenge Test?

I just started my first round of Clomid after 17 months TTC with no luck. I'm really hopeful that this will do the trick, but I'm trying not to let my mind get carried away thinking this will be my miracle drug. If my progesterone isn't "excellent" on day 21 and I don't get pregnant, my doctor is going to up it next cycle. *fingers crossed* that we don't have to worry about that!

Good luck to you!

Hi Roxy_girl,

I'm not sure what the Clomid Challenge Test is. I just wanted to say that I'm in almost the same position as you! I'm on cd15 of my first round of Clomid after 16 months TTC. My doctor said that if my progesterone isn't over 34 on cd21 then I'll go onto 100mg next cycle.

Good luck!

Good luck to you too! You must be just starting the TWW! I know it's early, but maybe you will get some good news at your day 21 appointment! *fingers crossed* I'm only on CD 5 right now... it's going to be a long month!

I'm still waiting on a positive opk. Haven't ovulated yet :( I tend to o around day 18/19 but thought Clomid might bring it forward. I had a follicle tracking scan on cd12 which showed I wasn't ready to o for a little while yet. She guessed it would probably be around my normal ovulation time. I had lots of follicles but they were all under 10mm. Are you having any scans this cycle? Which days are you taking Clomid?

Hi Ladies! So the clomid challenge test is where you get blood work on CD 3 and 10. They compare your FSH levels. It will tell the doctor if you have a good chance of the clomid working, if you need to go up, or if having a baby with your own eggs is virtually impossible. Luckily for me they said everything looked great!

I'm on my 5th round of clomid, second round of 100mg this cycle. I'm having trouble with O this cycle too Bluebell!

I usually O around CD 14, but I haven't even gotten a positive OPK or "feeL' like I'm about to O. Ugh.

Oh p.s. I'm also getting progesterone checked on CD 21 this time for the first time! Weirdly excited because I keep reading about other girls having this checked and I finally asked why my doc hasn't done it and now she is!

I didn't know about the Clomid Challenge, so thanks for the info. I'm having the 21 day testing, but if that doesn't go well and we up it to 100, I may ask about that. I would be curious to know how the drug is affecting my levels and if it is likely to help. I take my last dose of the 50 tonight! My fingers are crossed that it does the trick!

Hey Roxy, did you ever get your 21 day testing. How are things going? Got my 21 day tested yesterday and waiting to hear the results.

Other than that I think I'm in the tww, but not quite sure when I O'd yet because I missed a few temps.

Well looks like after 6 rounds of clomid, the second round of 100 mg worked!! Yesterday morning I got a faint postivie then I tested again this AM and got a little darker line, still light but darker than yesterday so I'll take it! FX that this bean stays healthy and happy in there and doesnt end in an early MC.

I wanted to share with you all! I hope clomid works for you all as well!

Hello, So FF is saying I'm 9 dpo, but my temps were screwy from travelling and waking up at dif. times so I honestly think I Ovulated on CD 16 which would put me at 11 dpo. Making the first faint positive test at 10 dpo ( but I also didn't test prior to dpo 10).

I haven't gotten my progesterone levels from CD 21 back yet but I'm calling tomorrow to check with doctor and to ask for more bloodwork to double check my levels.

I was on my 5th round of clomid ( made a mistake earlier by saying 6).
