First day on Clomid


After a very long 47 day cycle I finally got to take my first clomid tablet today and have booked a scan for the 23rd, my problem is I am not sure what I should be looking for on the scan or what kind of questions to ask,

Any advise at this point will be greatly appreciated..

many thanks

When i went for my scan they looked for follicles in the ovary that are measuring around i think 18mm, these are the ones that are likely to 'pop'. It dpends on what day you are in cycle as to what size. On day 10 mine were 11mm and one 14mm and they also measured womb lining, they put these measurements on to graph and explained that things were heading the right way for a 28 day cycle. If they are happy with the number and sizes then they will advise you to go home and 'do the deed!!' :snigger: Sometimes they may ask you to go back in to re check the sizes or number of follicles. That is just my experience i think each clinic is different. As for questions im sure they will cover most things but be sure to ask to or get your partner if he is there to listen as i was just happy that i had grew some follicles as to what to do next i didnt take it all in. They will probably give you info sheet!!

Hope this helps a bit, my memory is not great!! I really hope this cycle of clomid goes well, and you get the result you want x x x
