Clomid (clomiphene) days 5-9. Ultrasound day 10, follicle size 11mm. Is this ok? Will they still grow?

Follicle size: In clomid (clomiphene) cycles ovulation occurs about day 13-14. Get a test for ovulation (any pharmacy has them) and if positive, have intercourse 24 hours later. Wait for two weeks and obtain a serum HCG test, which is very accurate. ...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?

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

I am on Clomid (clomiphene) went into hospital this morn day 9 and I have 1 mature folicle they said which is 15mm will this grow in 2 days to get triggered?

Can't promise: But it sounds like it should. Normal follicle growth is between 1.5-3 mm per day, so you "should" have a 20+ mm follicle in 2-3 days. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

How much more effective is 100mg of Clomid (clomiphene) instead of 50mg in achieving a mature follicle?

Dosage of Clomid (clomiphene): The lowest dose that achieves is the dose to use. I recommend that patients start at 50 mg/day for 5 days beginning on cycle day 3 or 5 depending upon whether they have a 28 or 30 days cycle. If they don't ovulate on the 50 mg dose I increase it to 100 mg. ...Read more

During a timed intercouse cycle with clomid, (clomiphene) what size should follicles be before triggering?

Ovulatory size.: Clomid (clomiphene) will produce many follicles in a single cycle of use, and you want a follicle to enlarge enough to produce a viable egg. The dimensions of the follicle (style) are not as important as the content (substance). ...Read more

Can my follicles pick up growing from where they where if I stopped then started back taking clomid (clomiphene)?

Depends: If you just skipped one day of the Clomid (clomiphene) then the growth would continue. If it was longer than that then the growth of the follicle or multiple follicles will have been compromised. ...Read more

I read that taking Clomid (clomiphene) on days 3-5 produces a lot of follicles but not so strong but taking it on days 5-9 will produce few but strong. How true?

Neither: The earlier you start Clomid (clomiphene) the more likely you will make make more than one egg. And also it makes for a more regularly timed cycle. But as far as overall effect it does not make any difference. The eggs are the same. ...Read more

Have taken provera/clomid from 25mg-150mg. Not producing big enough follicles. What should be my next step?

Have taken provera/clomid from 25mg-150mg. Not producing big enough follicles. What should be my next step?

Need a diagnosis: The first "next" thing is to have a firm diagnosis or diagnoses. If you are missing any elements of a basic fertility eval you need to complete it. Sounds like you are saying you don't get a dominant follicle on CC? Or don't ovulate? Depending on your diagnosis you might boost the CC with metformin or dexamethasone, or may be a candidate for gonadotropin treatment. Good wishes. ...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

Not yet: Those follicles are way too small for ovulation, but d11 is early for most women. They may very well become large enough in the next week or so. What day did you ovulate in your first Clomid (clomiphene) cycle? Good luck! ...Read more
