First round of Clomid - One Follicle — The Bump
Trouble TTC

First round of Clomid - One Follicle

Hello all!

I am new to this site and I figured I needed some more support through TTC.  I am glad that there are others I can reach out to, but definitely not glad we all have trouble with it :(

I recently did my first round of Clomid, only 50mg for 5 days, which gave me one follicle.  I took the Ovidrel shot and my lady bits are a vessel of progesterone & estrogen pills!  (Estrace blue is my least favorite color).

I am during my 2ww now, and was wondering if anyone had any success either with the first round of clomid or with one follicle.  I know it only takes one, and I don't want to get my hopes up, but hey it might happen.  Anyone's stories and tries are welcome as I wanted to broaden my knowledge of this whole process. Thanks!

07/08/2013 - Start of Clomid 50mg for 5 days
07/23/2013 - 1 Follicle found
07/24/2013 - Start of Estrace
07/25/2013 - Ovidrel shot
07/27/2013 - Progesterone & 2ww
**08/12/2013 - pregnancy test!  Fingers crossed, but ready for neg.
 ** results are in........BFP!!!!

Re: First round of Clomid - One Follicle

  • A lot of the ladies here take clomid (I haven't yet), but normally I read about anything from 1-4 follies growing when on it.  I just learned last weekend that an old HS friend of mine got pregnant on her first round of clomid, so it can happen.  But if you're looking for more success stories, most of us on here are still trying for baby #1.  You may hear more positive stories on the Success After IF board.

    Sorry you have to be here!  But hopefully, it's a short stay. 



    Me 33, DH 37 -- TTC since Jan'12 -- Low AMH (0.78) & endo, SA w/ low motility
    IUI's 1-3 = BFN, IVF converted to IUI 4/13 = BFN
    IVF 1.2: 8R 6M 4F -- 2 blastocysts frozen, FET 8/15 = BFP!!
    Beta #s = 445;1,098; 9,545  -- EDD 5/2 -- Team Pink!
    Camila Josephine arrived 4/30 :)
  • I fail at figuring out the right board, ha-ha.  I get overexcited and post!  But I might take a gander over there and see if anyone has.  I think I am a little giddy that I actually stimulated something, as I am sure is a normal reaction.

  • Not a lot of success stories here.  FWIW I ovulate on my own and did 3 rounds of 50mg of clomid.  Twice I had 1 follie and once I had 2.  I think 1-2 follies is a pretty typical response.

    PAIF/SAIF Welcome!

  • I'm a very recent success story from my second round of Clomid 50 mg. We had one follie the first time and two this time. Still very, very early so I'm still lingering here. But yup, check out PAIF for more successes. Good luck!

     
  • I have not been on Clomid, but I have taken Femara days 3 - 7 twice now and both time only had one follicle.  My RE said that he just wants an ovulatory cycle.  I do not ovulate on my own without help, so he looks at is as a win.  Good luck!!!

    March 2013: First TTC trip to RE, On 1500 mg Metformin, April 2013:  PCOS and Endometriosis, May 2013:  DH Low volume; Femara 7.5 mg + IUI #1 = BFN, July 2013: Femara 7.5 mg + IUI #2 = BFN, August 2013:  Femara 7.5 mg (X5) + Bravelle (X7) + Ovidrel + IUI #3 + Endometrin = BFP  MC at 5w3d,

  • Hello and welcome

    I am also on my first round of Clomid and any day now I should get my LH surge and go in to see how many follicles I get. I ovulate on my own and I have gotten 3 BFPs, but my cycle is short (24 days) so the RE is hoping that the clomid will make me ovulate a few days later in my cycle (which it has, I would have ovulated by no later than today without it) and that will make my lining better. Extra follicles are just extra chances, but I am happy as long as I get one!!

    My SIL got a BFP on her second round of clomid. The first round she didn't get any follicles, so it is very possible that you can get your BFP! FX and GL to you!

  • @PPoppy2010, it looks like we're on the same timeline, maybe a day off...my signature won't input, another fail.  I only produced one folli, obviously, probably due to not ovulating on my own.  But good luck to you and @1983lindsey.

    This 2ww is agony!

  • I an extremely new to this site and while looking through comments and posts etc i feel like I'm missing out on some code to be able to read them haha. I had surgery in June to remove a mass they found in Fallopian tube and the mass cause me to stop ovulating (my ob thinks) so I just took progesterone for 10 days and 5 day clomid. Have done the bloodwork and go next week to find the results. What is a beta , what ate follies? Sorry for the questions just feeling lost.
