Sorry if this is long but I’m wondering what I should do!
Last month was my first on Clomid (50mg), I was scanned on CD12 and my doc said she could see very slight activity on my left ovary but that there hadn’t been a great response. She said I should forget about this cycle, wait until I got my next natural period and then double the dose.
I normally have 8 week cycles (ovulate every other month) so wasn’t expecting another period until next month. Today, I’ve started spotting and so I think I’ve ovulated late and this is my period (would make it a 37 day cycle). I did have quite a bit of pain around CD 23 and in retrospect think it was ovulation.
So, my question is, should I take double the Clomid dose or keep taking the 50mg seeing as I did actually ovulate on it? I can’t speak to the doc until Monday and I need to take it CD 1-5 which starts tomorrow!
My first month on clomid I was told exactly the same thing at the scan, but I ended up ovulating late on day 25. Sometimes it can happen a little late the first cycle. I had two separate progesterone tests to confirm ovulation, so you should really have this to make sure you haven't responded. Much better to be on the lowest dose possible with clomid.
