I have taken, to date, 3 cycles of Clomid 50 mg. My first cycle, I had a follicle in each ovary. I wasn’t monitored with an us or bw after this cycle so I don’t know if I ovulated both or any. I am positive I felt the O pain on my right side shortly after getting a + on an opk. I think I o’d the right side at the very least.
My next cycle was going to be an IUI cycle but the timing didn’t work out so we tried naturally again. This cycle, I had only 1 follicle, again in my right. I didn’t feel any O pain this time, even though I had a + opk.
Third cycle did result in an IUI. This time around, still 1 follicle on my right. CD 14 it was 21 mm and if I was planning to trigger, I probably would have at this point. I figured I would get my + opk but I didn’t. However, I felt the O pain again on my right on cd 17. An us on cd 18 showed a corpus luteum so I definitely did O. We did an IUI anyway even though the timing was not ideal whatsoever.
So I guess I want to ask my RE if my Clomid dosage can be raised to 75 or 100 mg to get a better response. I am dealing with a low sperm count with my husband. That is one factor working against us. I am going to be using a trigger more than likely this next cycle, just based on my - opk last cycle. I do respond to the Clomid dosage I am on. But I feel like it keeps getting less responsive each time I take it. Has anyone had any success with a similar situation? Or has your RE been responsive to this change? Any help or support is much appreciated.
