Went to the RE today. He suggested I get an u/s to see what's going on with my follicles, and if any are ready, do an HCG shot and then we could even do the IUI this cycle. Sounds great right? I mean, I *am* at CD 20.

They squeezed me in for the u/s [which is NOT covered by my insurance btw], just to find out that I had a bunch of teeny follicles, all measuring under 10mm!!! What the f*&^! I immediately start crying and DBF is holding my hand, trying to comfort me. Not only did I waste this money on the u/s but now the Clomid isn't working!

Meet back up with the RE. Apparently my endometrium is at 20.74mm [which is very thick I guess] and he thinks it would be best to start the Provera again, b/c it looks like it could be another 2 weeks before I ovulate, since my follicles are so freaking teeny. He said the good news is that I seem to be responding SOMEWHAT to the Clomid b/c I have a bunch of signs of increased estrogen- the fertile CM, CP, the thick lining on my uterus... so he thinks I have a very good chance that a higher dose of Clomid will work. I told him I was worried about the Provera not working and he said with a lining that thick, I should have NO trouble at all.

Next cycle, he want to go to 100mg of Clomid- I talked to him about doing it CD 3-7 and he said that there is no studies that prove for sure that doing it earlier = more follies, but he said studies have shown it's been just as effective either way as far as pregnancy rates etc go, so he's fine with me taking it earlier, with the possibility that I could have more follies and more targets for the spermies.

On CD 11, he wants to do another u/s to check follies- I think he could see how frazzled I was and thought that a more monitored cycle would be better. I told him straight up, I said, "I am just so freaking tired- so stressed out about all this." When my follies are ready, I will have a trigger shot [which I have to give myself- yikes!], and then an IUI two days later.

If you got this far, thanks for reading... I guess I am just so upset that this cycle is a bust.

I'm sorry My first Clomid cycle didn't result in ovulation, either, and I was also really frustrated. I hope that the increased dosage does the trick and that next cycle will be MUCH better!

I'm so sorry that this cycle is a bust. But I'm glad that your RE is on top of this now and will be monitoring you better next cycle! Hopefully the higher dosage is just what you need.

PS the trigger shot is pretty easy and painless, so I promise it won't be a big deal when the time comes!

Aww honey I'm sorry it didn't go well. I had almost the same thing happen yesterday. I took my second round of Clomid 50mg this cycle and went for my scan yesterday.....only one 13mm follicle on CD15! Soooo bad

I go back tomorow for another one....I'm thinking this cycle is a bust though. Hopefully 100mg of Clomid will do it for the both of us!
