How Many Follicles Does Clomid Typically Produce
If you produce more than one mature follicle on clomid, (clomiphene) will your body typically release all of them, or does that only happen with an HCG trigger?
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

Good: You only need one to reach maturity. ...Read more
