Question about clomid frequency

I just started af after my 2nd round of clomid with hcg trigger did not work.  My question is, how many cycles have you been on it, what else are you doing with it, and are you taking breaks in between cycles?  It's eventually and physically draining, and also financially, so I thinking of takinmethods cycle off.  Also I will be out of town for work on cd12 when they normally want to do the ultrasound and hcg shot...decisions decisions.  Any advice is appreciated!!

I've been on it for two cycles before and have taken a break before trying it again. I'm not doing a trigger shot yet, but something my doctor has mentioned.  I think you should take a break, especially since you won't be available for the trigger shot.  It sounds like you might need to change the dosage on your meds.

We decided to do a non monitored cycle and no trigger shot this month. I am taking 100mg on cd 4-8. I will be back on cd12 in the evening, so we will have to utilize that night..lol. Hopefully I don't ovulate until cd 13 or 14. What dose are you taking? We decided next month will be our break, and my husband will get an analysis done.
