It's the latter causing ovulation. And the rest is history. God bless you! http://www.Ovulation-calculator.Com/clomid.Htm. ...Read more

Sonogram (Definition)

An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more

Clomid (clomiphene) is an estro receptor.Brain needs estrogen surge to release lh.Which means ppl on Clomid (clomiphene) don't have LH surge?How egg burst out?

Got confused?: You are getting yourself confused. Clomid (clomiphene) is not an 'estro receptor' at all; it is mainly an estrogen receptor antagonist, but it has pro-estrogenic actions in some tissues and anti-estrogenic actions in others. Women on Clomiphene do mostly have an lh surge; not surging means the Clomiphene dose was likely too low. ...Read more

No big difference: Studies show pregnancy rates are identical starting cc on cd 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5. The main difference is starting later its less likely to have a persistent cyst from the past cycle. For patients not monitored by ultrasound cd 5 may be a better choice, with monitoring it makes little-to- no difference. ...Read more

Depends: First of all ovulation kits are not always perfect and they work less for women who do not ovulate. Even if Clomid (clomiphene) works, it still does not guarantee how fast the egg grows and so sometimes a later ovulation can occur. ...Read more

Clomid (clomiphene) help to increase FSH and LH to trigger ovulation, FSH and LH produce estrogen for lining , but why some drs say Clomid (clomiphene) will thin lining?

Antiestrogen: Clomid (clomiphene) works by blocking estrogen in your brain and pituitary gland. This makes the hormones rise which stimulate your eggs to grow. Unfortunately, it also blocks estrogen at the cervix and at your uterine lining. This can harm cervical mucus and make your uterus less receptive. ...Read more

On 1st round 50mg clomid (clomiphene). No dom. follicle day 18 ultrasound but +OPK for 2 days CD 19&20. Can follicle grow and I ovulate later in cycle?

Yes, possible: Yes that is possible. Do you have delayed menses when not taking any fertility meds? I would recommend having intercourse. OPKs do not work for all women however. There are some women with naturally high LH levels (such as PCOS patients) and their OPKs show + for many days of the cycle (inaccurate). Did you have a follicle that was at least above 14mm in size on sonogram? ...Read more

Can I ovulate with Clomid (clomiphene) without a trigger shot? Follicle 19x17. Dr said I should have sexual intercourse every 2 days.

Ovulation ? trigger: Most women will ovulate between 6-8 days after the last pil without a trigger shot. The follicle size of 19X17mm, although normal for a non Clomid (clomiphene) cycle, is a little short of the usual size in a Clomid (clomiphene) cycle. I suspect that you will ovulate within the next two days. Check you mucus because it's common using Clomid (clomiphene) to have decreased mucus prior to ovulation, and an IUI may be needed. ...Read more

Irregular period ( 32 to 41 days )..This month i took Clomid (clomiphene) in day 5 of my cycl..Day 15 i had two grown follicle..When is ovulation ?

3 - 8 days after: Ovulation is variable among different women using means of ovulation induction, Clomid (clomiphene) being the most commonly use. Ovulation, if it does occur, can occur anywhere from day 2-3 after taking the final dose up to a week. It appears you are under care of a physician who is watching you closely and could probably give you a more precise answer specific to your case. ...Read more

Is it normal to have a 12mm follicle on day 10, but still not ovulate until day 19. Took 250mg of Clomid (clomiphene) this cycle as well.?

Is it normal to have a 12mm follicle on day 10, but still not ovulate until day 19.  Took 250mg of Clomid (clomiphene) this cycle as well.?

50mg a day x 5 days?: I am guessing you took 50 mg a day x 5 days not 250 mg a day? Ovulating on day 19 is a little later than average but can still result in pregnancy. Increasing your dose to 100 mg a day for 5 days next cycle is a possibility - your dr will look at the number of follicles you made and the thickness of the endometrium (lining of your uterus). Discuss intrauterine inseminations (iui) with your md too. ...Read more

I been on Clomid (clomiphene) for 3 months on day 7 took my last pills of 150mg On day 8 i had 2 follicles one 10mm and 11mm what are my chances to ovulate?

Follicles: Those two follicles are a tad smaller then what we would like to see. A good follicle is usually more the 20mm in size. You should be checking ovulation prediction kits to see if ovulating though. It helps time coitus and your doc can always get an US the day of or after ovulation to look for collapse of a follicle and free fluid. ...Read more

Is there a connection between Clomid (clomiphene) and high progestrone level ? Does having 2 grown follicle around ovulation douples progestrone levels ?(30 ng/ml)

Yes: The point of taking Clomid (clomiphene) is to increase your chances of ovulation. When you are ovulating, then your Progesterone levels are higher during the luteal phase of your cycle. Do not get to fixated on the numbers. Th question is, are you ovulating? This is better determined using an ovulation predictor kit rather than getting your blood drawn every month! ...Read more

2nd 50mg Clomid (clomiphene). On the 17th day the follicle size is 14mm. Today is the 31st day, not yet ovulated, no period. My doctor is on holiday. Help please!

Didn't work : first check a pregnancy test. If negative then this round of Clomid (clomiphene) was not successful. Typically the dose would be increased to 100 mg and blood ovulation testing would be done on day 21 to determine if ovulation is occurring.
