I typically surge on cd 16 but I’m on cd 16 with no definite positive. I went in 2 days ago & my follicles were 13&14! I didn’t test that day or test morning but have tested 3x since you yesterday afternoon & the test are lighter then the day before my scan. I go in tomorrow & am so nervous that he will tell me I ovulated
I have been on clomid for 4 cycles now and it has delayed my O every cycle. I O on my own but LP was short and I was started on clomid. I normally O cd 14. This was my first month doing IUI. Cd13 I had 1 follicles 13 and 14. Cd 15 u/s showed 2 follicles both 17.5. I triggered the next morning and had IUI the next afternoon (yesterday). I guess I said all that to say that yes clomid can delay O. Sorry for being long-winded. Good luck and :babydust:
My RE says that Clomid usually makes you ovulate earlier, but I’ve heard plenty of stories of people ovulating later on it.
My experience is less than helpful - my cycles have been erratic lately. I took Clomid last cycle, and my cycle was longer than the previous two had been - but the previous two were way too short (as was that one - 19 days). (And we likely missed ovulation, because my doc wasn’t having me test early enough for a 19 day cycle - they used to be 30-32!)
This cycle, no clomid, but o’d EARLY (with trigger) - perhaps due to clomid sticking around.
Given that you had 13/14 on the day you last scanned, I doubt you had a surge that day. Frequently, follicles get BIGGER on Clomid as well, when you’re not triggering. I wouldn’t worry too much about tomorrow…
If it helps, I suspect that I still had clomid in my system this cycle (we cancelled it when I had a 14mm follicle on day 4 and hadn’t started clomid yet) and my follies grew like crazy - I ended up triggering when my LH was in the 7’s, not yet a full surge, and I had a 22, 25, and 31!! So, really, I bet the 13/14 just had to grow a bit more… hang in there!
Thx for responding ladies. I’m just so nervous. Fertility treatments suck I’m just all is good tomorrow and we trigger !!
Deep breaths. You’re monitored for a reason. I REALLY doubt he’s going to tell you you o’d. Particularly if you haven’t seen a surge!
IUI #1 - 100mg clomid CD3-7, +opk and Trigger CD14 and IUI CD16
Cycle #1 of just clomid - 50mg clomid 3-7, +opk CD12, ovulated CD14. Which is basically my normal cycle.
Cycle #2 of just clomid - 50mg clomid CD3-7, +opk CD18, ovulated CD19
IUI #2 - 100mg clomid CD3-7, body wasn’t responding so my RE added follistim (injections) CD 13-18, +opk CD17, Triggered CD18, IUI CD 19. (this cycle was so off)
After that, i was only on injections.
Thx. Wanted to update in case anyone else has this question. Had 1 20+ follie and a smaller one that he didn’t even bother to measure. I didn’t see a surge but he felt I’d ovulate by tonight? We did iui & did a trigger just in case. I’ll do another iui tomorrow.
Was waiting to hear, md - glad you’ve triggered and that your fears about having already o’d were laid to rest. Good luck, and welcome to the 2ww!
