Clomid Ovulation Calculator
May be normal: Ovulation likely happens about 5-7 days after your last Clomid (clomiphene) pill. If the pain is more than moderate, see your doctor right away. There's a small chance a cyst or bleeding can develop on the ovaries after using clomid (clomiphene). Some mild to moderate pain that lasts a day or two is probably normal.
"clomid" : ovulation: Clomiphene citrate is given usually from day five through day 9 of a woman's cycle. Ovulation will occur usually between day 12-14 of a clomid (clomiphene) cycle. You can get a termometer at a drugstore which is calibrated in tenths of a degree, and a temperature rise indicates ovulation if you wish to know more precisely.
Fullness is common: Clomiphene citrate (clomid) is a synthetic medication that causes the pituitary gland to secrete more follicle stimulating hormone (fsh) and luteinizing hormone (lh). Fsh in particular stimulates ovaries to mature many follicles (cysts that contain eggs). Since normally a woman grows only 1 follicle every cycle, the multiple follicular development that occurs with Clomid (clomiphene) can cause fullness.
Variable: First, Clomid (clomiphene) is usually taken in a 5 or so day range. Second, Clomid (clomiphene) does not always result in ovulation success. Third, the timing of ovulation after Clomid (clomiphene) varies so you should use an u=ovulation predictor kit to help identify if and when you ovulate.
No: Not faster, no. There should be no important difference if you have a reliable ovulation on 50 mg. If you did not ovulate reliably on 50 mg, then 100 mg would be more likely to make it happen. The best cc dose is the lowest dose that produces reliable consistent ovulations.See 1 more doctor answer
Around day 14: Ovulation with Clomid (clomiphene) is usually day 13-15 for most women, though it's possible to ovulate several days later. If you have intercourse every other day starting day 11 you will have sex during your fertile time. You can also use an ovulation predictor starting day 11. When it turns positive you will ovulate in 12-36 hours.
Ovulation variable: Clomiphene normalizes ovulatory function in those women who can respond to it. In studies of effects on ovulation timing, clompphene delays ovulation in those who ovulate early and with poor follicle formation, while advancing ovulation time in those who ovulate late with poor luteal phases. For those women who are completely anovulatory, average day of ovulation was 16, with range 14-19.See 1 more doctor answer
HCG: We always trigger ovulation on Clomid (clomiphene) cycles using HCG injections at 5000-10000 units. This injection triggers ovulation by simulating the lh (leutinizing hormone) surge in the middle of the cycle. Very effective & predictable. Ovulation occurs 24-36 hours after HCG injection. On a spontaneous (no HCG injection) cycle, ovulation is unpredictable.See 1 more doctor answer
