Clomid Monitoring

How often did your RE monitor you during a clomid cycle?  From what I can tell, I think I will get an u/s on day 3 and day 14 (earlier if I get a +opk before day 14) and my progesterone will be checked 3 days after the second night of TI.  I also get a lot of other b/w done on cd3.  Does this sound typical?  I just want to make sure the RE is doing everything right.  He comes highly recommended, but you never can be too careful!

Re: Clomid Monitoring

  • That sounds about right to me. My RE will do the u/s CD 12 but not the earlier one. I will schedule the trigger based on that u/s. I know I am Oing so no bloodwork right now.

  • After the first few cycles, you shouldn't need b/w anymore. It's probably to test your levels to make sure everything is functioning correctly. I've been on Clomid for a while and now I just get the 2 u/s, one at beginning to check for cysts and then around day 14 to check for ovulation.

  • It sounds about right - I was on CD3, 11 and depending on my follicle size day 13. I was also on injects.
