I'm a little disappointed.  On round 2 of clomid 100 mg (last month used clomid 50 mg, ovidrel, and still did not ovulate) and i only have 2 immature follies in my right ovary, nothing in the left.  I don't understand, the last 2 ultrasounds i had, showed a few mature and loads of immature ones.  How could I raise my medication dosage and do worse?  The RE started to give me prescriptions to change to femara for next month, told me not to take the ovidrel, not to come back for progesterone.  I guess my look of complete disappointment made her change her mind.   Then she said that it's possible it may grow, so to come back in 2 days for another u/s. It was at 11 mm. 


I wasn't expecting to get pregnant this month, however didn't even consider that it may be because lack of foll. growth.  So, guess I'm going back on Thursday to see if it reaches 15 mm by then and maybe we'll have one shot.  If not, it's on to femara next month.

((((HUGS)))) I completely understand how disappointing it can be. My first round of Clomid I had 3 follies and my second round I had nothing. I am on to injections this month as soon as AF arrives. I just hold on to the faith that God eventually someday, somehow will bless my family with another child.

Boo! But I don't think 2 sounds all that bad really, heck I did a ton of meds for ivf and only got 3! Keep your chin up and I h&p that you have growth by Thurs. What cd are you?

Hi Kelly,

I'm cd 12. Had E2 bloodwork which i'm assuming came back predictable because they never called me. I'm assuming i'll have more bloodwork done again on thursday when they do the other ultrasound. i'm more bummed because i seemed to ovulate on my own (although never the same time of month) prior to treatment, however once i started treatment everything seems messed up. last month needed provera, this month only 2 immature follies? so confused. i'm so used to planning everything and being black and white answers, and i'm trying to learn that IF is a very grey area!!!! patience is not one of my strong points. :)

Thanks faith! I think that the not knowing why is the biggest issue. I'm a very "why" person. :)

Hey Jez,


Ask your doc about Femara. We didn't have good luck with Clomid but Femara worked for us month 1. It helped me with better follie growth for me, thin PCOS'er that doesn't O or get AF on my own. Ask about it. Many respond to it and not Clomid. My RE starts with Femara over clomid!!!


Best wishes!
