Does anyone know any tips or helpful hints for growing healthy follicles? I start clomid tomorrow
(3rd try) and go for my follie check on New Years Eve. I'm really hoping for good news so I can trigger and IUI, so any tips you girls have come across will be helpful.
I don't have much to add. I've read royal jelly (for months) and nutritional factors (Vit D., L arginine and so forth) can help but they take months. I've taken them for months and months with so far little results, but maybe it's something else

When I was on Follistim last cycle, I was reading many things about how to increase follie size and growth. I kept reading about drinking LOTS of water, so I did that. Another thing I heard (and pls take all with a grain of salt! ) was to lie on the floor with your feet/legs straight up against the wall. *Supposedly* this increases blood flow to your pelvic region and reproductive organs. I also read that heat does the same thing, so keeping a hot water bottle against your lower abdomen for 15 mins or so is a good idea.
I tried the first two things, but didn't do the heat thing.
You never know! Good luck!
Married with two awesome 7 year olds, we're TTC with unexplained infertility.
Thank you sophiasmomma for my beautiful siggy!

My RE felt very strongly that DHA would help with follie quality, he put me on a prescription prenatal to make sure I had enough of it. You can buy it OTC from Naturemade too, it is usually paired with folic acid.
