clomid 25 or 50

So total Chelle thoughts here. I am suppose to start clomid 25mg today cd 3-7 and take 75 iu bravelle days 4,6, and 8. I just realized from one of my other cycles I actaully have enough clomid to take 50 mg days 3-7. This will be the first time using bravelle. I never had more than one follicle on clomid alone, but again my doctor is concerned about my response to the fsh hence the lower dose of clomid. My antral count was 16. I just want this cycle to be successful. Ughhhh, I should probably just do what my doctor says.

IMO, do what your doctor says. The clomid in a hybrid cycle is not really to grow the follicles - the injections will do that. The clomid in this cycle is to recruit the one or two that are most healthy/ready. Upping that dose won't give you any positive outcome here.

IMO screw the dr :) Clomid is pretty harmless, 25 extra mg probably won't anything at all and it CERTAINLY is not going to cause you to overstim especially if you never had much response to the Clomid before.
