Okay so I am on Clomid (total of 6 rounds) and currently on 100 mg with chance of upping to 150 mg next month. But I am concerned because I keep hearing everyone else say their doctors do ultrasounds both for the follicles and for cysts and my doctor has only done one ultrasound and told me the cysts were normal due to ovulation (and I have PCOS). He has never checked the follicles and only wants to call if I either get pregnant or on day 1 so they know I am starting a new cycle of drugs. Anyone think this strange or is just me??? Please help!!!

Well in my situation my dr does a u/s very often she does one every month to measure my lining and my follicles if noting good then I wait for AF....So I think that it is weired you are not regularly getting a u/s

I am pretty sure that I never had an u/s while on clomid.

I know i"m kinda late for a reply but I thought I'd add my thoughts.

I have an u/s on day 1 or 2 of my cycle. If I have cysts on my ovaries over 9mm then I have to wait and not start clomid for that month. If they are smaller than that then I start cd 3-9 of clomid. I do a second u/s on cd 10-11 to check the size of the follies. Then if they aren't ready for the trigger I go in again for a third and final u/s a couple of days later depending on how the second one looked. Then after the third u/s I usually trigger.

Sorry it's late but I hope it helps!

Mine is a bit late as well, sorry. This is my first cycle on Clomid and my OB isn't planning to do any bloodwork or scans at this point. She just wants to see if it moves up my O date first and then go from there.

I have U/S CD 1-3 do the Clomid CD 3-7 then on CD 12 I go back for a second US and then told when to do my HCG shot. My RE does this to make sure not cysts from and to check the folical size.
