What could happen if I miss a dose of clomiphene?

What could happen if I miss a dose of clomiphene?

Likely nothing...: Clomid (clomiphene) has a relatively long half-life, meaning its metabolites last a fairly long time in the blood to give the desired effect. If you miss a dose, it likely won't matter as long as most of the pills were taken as directed. Be sure to let your doc know, though. Good luck! ...Read more

Clomid (clomiphene) days 3-7. Today is day 5. When should I o? And when do I start testing to not miss it. Test 2ce a day? N sex everyday or skip in between?

Pace yourself: Best to ask your doc to be sure for your specific situation; however, usually ovulation testing is started on day 12. You don't need to test twice a day.

Its best not to have intercourse every day because this decrease his sperm count. However, when the ovulation prediction test is Positive, you can have intercourse that night and the next. Good Luck! ...Read more

I finished my last 50mg of Clomid (clomiphene) july 12 & today when I tested for a LH surge it was neg, does this mean I missed my window or didn't ovulate?

Not sure: Lh testing on Clomid (clomiphene) should start around day 10-11 of your cycle and continue until you test positive or until cd 20. If no surge by cd 20 you need to call your physician. Unfortunately I am not sure what today means as there is no date. ...Read more

Is it possible to miss menses after ovulating? My last periods was on mar 7th, n I ovulated on clomid, (clomiphene) till nw no menses, n ovulation fr dis month started

Is it possible to miss menses after ovulating? My last periods was on mar 7th, n I ovulated on clomid, (clomiphene) till nw no menses, n ovulation fr dis month started

No: The simple answer is no. If you truly ovulated then your menses should begin 14 days after this. Sometimes ovulation testing and Progesterone can be incorrect in documenting ovulation. Either you are pregnant, which would be great or the ovulation testing you did was what we call a "false positive" test and you did not ovulate despite the results the testing showed. ...Read more

Clomiphene: The negative pregnancy test combined with the brown discharge could signal a pregnancy failure. Your doctor will want to advise you to probably keep trying, but a second failure, should it occur, is a sign to work you up for possible antibodies - such as anti-platelet antibodies - which can cause multiple pregnancy failures. ...Read more

How long after finishing a dose of Clomid (clomiphene) does ovulation happen?

How long after finishing a dose of Clomid (clomiphene) does ovulation happen?

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. ...Read more

How many days after your last dose of Clomid (clomiphene) should you ovulate?

How many days after your last dose of Clomid (clomiphene) should you ovulate?

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. ...Read more

Hi if I stop testesterone and to help my body make own testesterone what dose of clomid (clomiphene) I can take? And for haw long

Start and check: 25 mg once a day for males is the starting dose, but it is important to check testosterone levels to see if it is working or not. Also if your levels are on the high side, 25 mg once every other day maybe indicated instead. ...Read more

I'm on 25 mg Clomid (clomiphene) days 3-5! is this dosage too low? Does Clomid (clomiphene) improve egg quality? This is 3rd month on it, should I ask for higher dose?

Depends: The dosage and duration depends on your response. It does appear that your 25 mg for only three days might be somewhat low. Ask your physician what your Progesterone level is and how many follicles developed during your cycle. Usual starting dose is 50 mg on days 3-7. Clomid (clomiphene) regulates ovulation and increases the number of follicles, but it doesn't usually improve egg quality. ...Read more

Why would my Clomid (clomiphene) dosage be uped (from 25mg to 50mg) if the lower dose succeeded at ovulation? Will I ovulate earlier in my cycle?

Why would my Clomid (clomiphene) dosage be uped (from 25mg to 50mg) if the lower dose succeeded at ovulation? Will I ovulate earlier in my cycle?

Just guessing: Usually you do not up CC dose if reliable ovulations happen; on the other hand 25 mg is below the usual starting dose of 50. Some docs will up CC dose after a first cycle "just because" - you need to ask your doctor what the reason was. ...Read more

100mg Clomid (clomiphene) cd5-9. Last dose yesterday. Positive OPK today on cd10. Normal ov on cd13/14. Can Clomid (clomiphene) cause false + opk? Also had very stressful week.

Depends: Clomid (clomiphene) does not cause a false OPK but there could be some underlying conditions such as pcos that can cause a false positive opk. The best will be to see your obgyn or fertility specialist today or tomorrow and have a sonogram done to see if you have a dominant follicle. Very unlikely that you are about to ovulate so early in the cycle. ...Read more

Cycle day 22: We expect ovulation to occur about cycle day 14 to 16 on a Clomid (clomiphene) cycle. Frequently ovulation occurs later, often as late as cycle day 18, 20 or 22. If ovulation has not occurred by cycle day 22, it is not likely for that cycle. ...Read more

If im using axiron 60 mg can clomid (clomiphene) at low dose be added for low sperme count And keep testicle working??

Probably not: I know of no studies on this question. Clomiphene may be used alone to raise testosterone and possibly promote spermatogenesis. Conventional wisdom is that exogenous testosterone suppresses spermatogenesis. Normally there is no concern about sperm count in males beyond the usual reproductive years, but when fertility is of concern exogenous testosterone should be avoided. ...Read more
