New to Clomid, what doage?

Postby TTCnumber2at42 » Wed Apr 17, 2013 4:49 am

Hi, I have been taking Femara for so many cycles now I lost count. I am going to doctor tomorrow (for a different issue but...) I want to ask for a RX for Clomid and try that for 3-6 cycles. What dosage are you on and what CD days do you take it? Please note I have have numerous failed IUIs, ART treatments and am over 40 so I am thinking perhaps a higher doage may be required .....

my opinion....start with 50mg, and see if that works.. my Dr told me if you go to high it can delay O ALOT by up to 2 weeks... I asked about moving to 100mg and she said she was concerned about very late ovulation and also developing cysts from to much stimulation... it might be best to add the ultrasound into it this cycle with the 50mg to see if it is produing the right size eggs for you..

I take it from CD5-9, she says the later you take it the bigger the eggs, the sooner you take it the more eggs produced but potentially to small to fertilize...

March 2013 started taking DHEA 25mg 3 times a day FSH is now 8.5... down from 17.8 from 3 months earlier. They want it well below 10.

June, 2013- AMH level .016 (low) they want it over 1.

June 2013- Antral Follicle Ct- 6 (low) they want it over 10.

one more note TTC, my Dr did tell me that clomid can increase your FSH even higher, but the hope was that even with that that I would still get a good egg from it and catch a cycle where the level was not as elevated..
