How many follies did you ladies have on Clomid? What was your dose?

Another thread had me wondering if I should be producing more follicles. I was on 50 mg last month and had one big beautiful follie. I am on 100 mg this month and definitely had one good one-and the RE *thought* she saw another. My doctor has always seemed happy with just one follie...should I be concerned that I'm not producing more?

I took 100 mg of Clomid last month and had 1 follicle on my left ovary. I don't know about my right--my RE doesn't tell me about those b/c it's a moot point.

This month, I took 150 mg of Clomid and again had 1 mature follie. I also had two TINY ones but the RE said they wouldn't mature enough to release an egg.

I know my RE was a little disappointed that I didn't produce more follies on Clomid.

But 1 really is all you need!

It only take one beautiful one and it depends on why the doctor is giving the clomid. For me, I had unexplained infertility, so I ovulated on my own but they wanted more targets. I produced 2-3 on 50 mg clomid and I still did not get a BFP, while others had 1 and got BFP's:-(

1st cycle - 50mg, two nice follies, one on each ovary

2nd cycle - BCP... huge cyst

3rd cycle - 50mg, one nice follie, left ovary

4th cycle - 50mg, two nice follies, one on each ovary.

It totally has varied for me and my Dr's only really want me to have one because they don't want to increase the risk of multiples.

Yet another wonderful siggy by HeatherW.... thank you so much!!!

1st cycle on Clomid 50MG = had 5 follicles, 3 that were completely mature by the time I triggered (the other 2 probably were as well as my last follicle check was a few days before I triggered)

2nd cycle on Clomid 50MG = had 3 mature follicles

Thank You Jaidynsmum for my gorgeous siggie!
