i was prescribed 100mg clomid and a HCG 10,000 injection at my fertity appointment friday and told i take clomid days 2-5 then on cycle day 12 i need an ultra scan then have the injection. i went to book an appointment for the scan and the nurse told me the women who does the scans is away until the beginning of november so i cant start clomid this month ( was due to start taking it saturday just gone) will have to wait til next month now till i can take it but she also said she knows the women is really busy next month so i may not even get an appointment until december. For a start i havent yet seen any women on here mentioning they have to have a scan then an injection when they are on clomid.
Is there any women that has to have a scan and injection??? i'm tempted next month (as im now out because of them this month) to just start taking the clomid tablets as i dont want to miss another month because of them. But wanted to see if anyone else just takes the tablets or if everyone has to have this scan and injection
This last cycle i had 100mg of clomid followed by a HCG shot, i had a scan done that day, they had to make sure that the clomid worked, and have to make sure your eggs are the right size, if they arent grown fully or not even there then no need for the HCG shot. i then had to go back the next day just to make sure i OV, hope this helps you! good luck!!!
have you always had to have the HCG shot?? it so frustrating as they told me i cant start my clomid unless they have an appointment if they dont have any then i cant start it and have to wait till the following month each time! i always hear of women taking clomid but never having to have injections or scans.
Surely there must be other people on here who have had the injection or not with clomid???????????????
that was my first time, and it was my choice to have it, i didnt have to, but i am impatient and just wanted to be sure of when i would Ov, i will get it again this time though aswell. i dont know any others that have taken it myself. as for the scans, im happy to have them, i know the clomid is working, and the shot is as well, its a pain in the butt but good in the end.
On all my rounds of clomid I had a scan so see when to have the injection, I normally needed the injection on cd16 as that is when my follies were the right size. If I had not gone for the scan and had the injection earlier in my cycle my follies wouldn't of been big enough and therefore wasted cycle. Could you maybe price up a private scan instead?
In the Uk you will only get 6 clomid cycles (in Germany we get 9) so you really need to make them count and it may be best to delay for a couple of months to ensure the injection is done at the right time because timing really is everything xxx
I think your question may have already been answered, but I'll add my experience in case it's a help.
I just finished my second cycle of injections - Follistim and Ovidrel. However, my follicles develop very quickly with the Follistim and last month I o'd on day 9. This month it was closer to day 12. I'm concerned that everything happens too quickly....that my lining doesn't have time to get to a good thickness, etc. So, if I do not get a BFP this month, next month they will put me on Clomid in addition to the injections.
I think I'll go in for a baseline scan around Day 3, then do Clomid days 3-7, then Follistim days 7-9, then a scan, and if I'm ready, Ovidrel. I haven't heard of many people at all going this route, but was told that the Clomid will help lengthen my cycle. Then the Ovidrel finishes up the maturation process and causes ovulation.
