What day do you start clomid?

Postby Amanda27 » Fri May 16, 2008 11:46 am

What day's do you all start clomid? My doctor uses days 3-7 but I wanted to see what your doctor prefers.

I have used clomid (including ttc last time) on 2-6, 3-7, 4-8 and 5-9. Right now my doctor has me using it from 2-6, his reason, I will produce more follies and it has less of an effect on my endometrial lining. I am also on 150mg with trigger then dual IUI's. I am 2dpoiui. If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks everyone! I was thinking starting day 1 or 2 to see if I can ovulate earlier. When I was first on clomid I did days 3-7 but didnt ovulate until day 21! So I was just seeing if anyone started earlier or not.
I read that starting on day 1 can be the most successful.
I'll call my doctor monday and see what he says.

Thank you!

3-7 or 5-9!

Postby Goodgolly » Mon May 19, 2008 6:40 am

My fert doc said days 3-7 produce a higher chance of multiples, where as 5-9 is more for making sure you ovulate the one egg!

I'm doing mine 4-8. If not successful this month, I might try 5-9. I was Oing early on my own, so dr wanted to do it later to push O back some. I did do the 3-7 last month to see what would happen, and I O'd on cd13. On cd4-8 I O on cd16.

I guess I should have been more specific...my fert doc put me on 100mg on days 5-9 last cycle. That is my first cycle on clomid. All tested fine and I O'd on cd16. She said that is the perfect day for a 31 day cycle. Sooo, I should be able to test in about 3 more days!! baby dust and all that!!

Goodgolly I never knew that taking it later means only one egg, but I guess that makes sense once I think about it!

I'm days 5-9, last month I didn't ovulate til about cd33. This month I've doubled my dose and should O tomorrow which is cd19.
