Ok, so I just picked up my second round of clomid at the pharmacy and it says to take it CD 5-9. Last month I took it CD 3-7 and when I spoke to my OB/GYN on the phone a couple days ago she said CD 3-7 again. Does anyone know if taking it on different CD's makes a difference? I don't know why my DR. would change the days on me like that?!
Taking Clomid 3-7 is suppose to produce more follicles and taking it 5-9 is suppose to create a more mature dominant follicle as well as help your progesterone level if you are having low readings (longer Luteul phase). My Dr told me to take it 3-7 but pharmacy couldnt get the script done till day 5 - he said it was ok and I ovulated and had great progesterone level so I'm glad I took it then.
My label always says take as directed. I think if your doctor said CD 3-7 then I would follow that. CD 5-9 is probably the most commonly prescribed (a lot of OB/GYN's follow it), so I am going to guess that maybe the pharmacy made a typo and it wasn't a switch from your doctor. If in doubt, call the doctor.
