Hello all, I'm new to this group. I began taking Clomid a few months ago because I was having 11-15 day cycles due to not ovulating. I started out taking one 50 mg pill/day on days 3-7. After 2 cycles of still no ovulation, (my follicles were only approx 9-10cm) they've increased my dosage to two 50 mg pills/day on days 3-12. Is this normal? I'm just started to get frustrated and worried this will not work... any suggestions or information would be great. Thanks!
My heart goes out to you because I have infertility issues as well and it's very hard on us. I started on clomid several years ago and it didn't help me much at all. I have recently started IVF drugs and Bravelle will help get your follicles ready in no time, but it's a small shot in stomach every day. I'm terrified of giving myself a shot and it took me an hour to do the first because I was scared,lol. After that one it was no problem because it didn't hurt at all but my trick was to place needle to skin then not look and stick! While on Bravelle they do ultrasounds around every two days to measure follicles and I was ready in 5 days! One was 20cm and some were 16-18cm, however as you might have got from that comment it does cause lots of follicles. Good luck and I hope this helps. We are starting our second month of IVF drugs and hopefully this is our last:) praying this is the month!!!
