Clomid twice in one cycle

I'm trying for my second child.  I took clomid on days 5-9 and have follicles but the sizes aren't increasing.  My RE prescribed another 5 days of clomid.  I'm just curious if anyone has had luck with 2 rounds of clomid in one cycle.

I've never heard of that, but I also don't have a lot of experience with Clomid. It sounds very interesting though, did he up your dosage to see if that would work better this time?I've never heard of that, but I also don't have a lot of experience with Clomid.

No he didn't increase the dosage.  I took 100 the first time and started 100 mgs last night.  I can't imagine that this is going to help but we'll see.  It's cutting it really close to the end of my cycle so I'm a little worried.

Do you think the second round of Clomid worked?

It did. I went in for an ultrasound after taking the second round and I had two follicles...one of them was ready. The other was smaller but bigger than before the second round.
