A 36-year-old member asked:
Is 100mg clomid (clomiphene) likely to make follicle big?

Possibly: Clomid (clomiphene) generally is used in women that do not ovulate on a regular basis. And yes, it should cause a follicle to grow in size and should cause spontaneous ovulation, or the release of an egg, when the follicle gets to 22+mm in size. If it is much bigger than that, Clomid (clomiphene) may have caused a simple cyst to develop and not an egg follicle. Hope this helps.
