What days does everyone take their Clomid

Postby ann53015 » Mon Apr 03, 2017 8:14 am

What days is everyone taking their Clomid? I am taking it 5-9 and not ovulating until day 19 which is late.

This is my 1st cycle on clomid. I'm taking it days 5-9 also. But I don't know how it affects the timing of my ovulation since this is the 1st cycle. And I'm doing an IUI so they will give me the trigger shot to make me ovulate.

Ok. We opted not to do IUI yet, just personal choice at this point. We may consider if this round of CLomid does not work this cycle. I would be interested in knowing how it works for you. Fingers crossed.

I'll find out Thursday when I go in for my follicle scan. I'll let you know.

I'm 36 so we didn't want to waste any more time. Plus my RE would still have required me to come in for the monitoring and that is more expensive than the IUI itself.

My first cycle of clomid 50 mg I took days 5-9 and didn't get a positive opk until cd 26. Bfn

Second cycle I went to 100mg and changed my days to 3-7 and I got a positive opk cd 15. I got pregnant that cycle.

Went to RE yesterday. Had an US to check for cysts from the Clomid, there were none thank goodness. Start next round of Clomid tomorrow day 5 again. This time however we are going to do a trigger shot since I am not ovulating til CD19. They want it around CD15. Nervous about a trigger shot. But trying to keep my eye on the prize!!

I had my CD12 follicle scan this morning. There were 2 decent size follicles on the left (11 & 15) along with a few smaller ones and about 10 smaller ones on the right. I think the plan right now is to let them grow a few more days. So, I'll probably trigger on Monday and have the IUI Tuesday. I've never had a mid cycle scan without clomid so I can't really say if this is an improvement from a non medicated cycle or not.

Thanks for the update mbt. I am super excited/nervous to hear about my follicles next Saturday. Your results seem pretty good to me but again I have never done this before. But of course I have researched and researched since my US Tuesday to get more info lol. I have never had a midcycle US so I have nothing to compare it to either. I am just hoping and praying this trigger shot works the first time (a little crazy I know). I did read the trigger shot will give you positive pregnancy tests for the first 10 days or so after. DId you RE tell you that? I am assuming they will give me more info next Saturday about everything.

I am on my second round go clomid which I'm taking cd 3-7. I have one more day left of clomid but this morning I woke up to ewcm, is this normal? Wouldn't it be too early for ovulation?

Normally they say you ovulate 5-9 days after your last pill and if you take opks too soon you can get a false positive Opk. Maybe that is what is happening.

I haven't used an opk yet, I'll probably wait on that. I was just wondering about the ewcm because I also felt something similar to ovulation pain on the left and right side, which could be follicle growth I guess.

I'm currently on my first round of Clomid, and really hopeful that it's all I'll need.

I took 100mg on CD days 1-6, and have since had a very strong ovulation. Right now im on DPO 5 or 6 and have my hopes up (but trying to remain realistic)
