Clomid mid-cycle scan results

So I had my ultrasound this morning to check the size of my follicles. This is what happened.


  1. Side effects are a little bit deceiving. On the 50mg I had intense hot flashes, my ovaries felt enormous and painful and I had serious Clomid rage. Ironically, the dose had NO effect. Single egg, ovulated CD19, shakey spotty luteal phase, borderline progesterone. On 100mg I still had hot flashes and the swollen ovary feeling but it was nowhere near as intense. On 100mg I still ovulated at C16-18 but my progesterone was brilliant and luteal phase was also great....and the second time on 100mg we also conceived. Ummm, not sure about the first but the cycle we conceived I had three follicles. In terms of your question regarding whether you'd not just ovulate if the follicles are mature... not always. Some women get a condition called LUFS. Type of PCOS where egg matures, follicle grows but then it doesn't rupture and instead shrivels and forms a cyst. A HCG shot or something similar will force that process to happen.

    Anyway, hopefully, the big ones you have will mature nicely and give you a few to play with, without having to worry about trigger shots. :-)

  2. Thank you for sharing, I'm remaining hopeful even though I have not had a +OPK yet
