Hi from my understanding of when we had Clomid it can make you ovulate or increase number of eggs or increase quality of eggs depending on the days you take it. I took it cd2-6 and I believe it was for a combo of ovulating and increasing numbers. Good luck.

What's SE? I've been fairly emotional today (day of 4th dose).
Nessaw did clomid work for you?

Se is side effects I think. It didn't work in getting pg but what it did was regulate my cycles. Before it they varied in length between 22-36 days and I could never pinpoint ovulation. On it and after I had 26 day cycles with ov on cd12. So that then did lead to me becoming pg and eventually my rainbow.x

That's interesting nessaw that it regulated your cycles. I was on femara for 5 cycles, it gave me cysts for each cycle I was monitored for, and now I got a larger cyst on a natural cycle :/

Had the scan today - the doctor was really pleased said I had mature follicles on both ovaries (one in each) and has told us to start dtd from Thursday every other day for a week and a half to be on the safe side. I don't know whether having one only on each side is good or bad? I'm just really hoping this works! Fingers crossed please x

I'd say its a good sign! No matter which way those swimmers go there will be an egg waiting for them Good luck!

I'm like 99% sure I didn't ovulate this cycle. I'm on CD 18 and have had spotting for the last 6 days. I'm having some major cramping today so I wouldn't be surprised if AF showed. I think that cyst must have messed up my hormones this cycle.

I hope so. I guess it doubles our chances but I think I was hoping for more with the clomid! I suppose this is only round one though so I should be grateful it's done anything so far!
Sorry you haven't ovulated this month, although I suppose if that has to happen it's good it was in a month you were having a break. Do they know why you're developing cysts?

2 eggs is a pretty good response!

While taking femara or clomid there is an increased risk of cysts forming. So I had assumed it was from that. But then I got this large cyst on a natural cycle, so now I dunno! Might just be bad luck? It's pretty common to form corpus luteum cysts that stick around.
