The trials and tribulations of our journey to make a baby.

I would die for that.

1/2 a pill of Clomid

So, when I went into the RE for my CD3 stuff today, I had to meet with one of the other doctors.

She was surpised that I was doing Clomid since she knew I was really scared to do it.

She said that she has had some nice results using only a half a pill of Clomid. (She even has seen nice results using 1/2 a pill over 3 days rather than 5 days.).

She recommends this for some of her patients who are scared of multiples.

She said if I try it and only produce one follie, well then I still have one follie for this IUI and next month I can try the whole pill. She said that the two of the three female doctors are trying 1/2 a pill on a lot of patients and my doctor is not. I have no idea why.

So, I talked to Stephen and he really wants me to try the 1/2 of a pill.

So, that's what we are doing, for 5 days.

Hopefully it works. She said I might see 2-3 follies rather than 3-4 follies.

What do you think? Am I being stupid?

Tricia, I say do what you feel is best for you and DH. If you are worried about multiples, then only take the 1/2 pill. You'll see how your body reacts to clomid and if you stimulate well on only 1/2 a pill then so be it. If you need more of a kick next cycle (which hopefully you won't cos this one will work) then you can up the ante then...

Take care!

I don't think you're being stupid. See how you do on 1/2 a pill. You never know how your body will react. It didn't really do much for me. I only had 1 dominant follicle and a frw small ones everytime I used clomid. If it makes you feel any better I'm scared of multples too which is why we went from IUI w/Clomid to IVF.

I was taking 3/4 of a clomid the cycle I got pregnant!

My doctor just recommended taking 25mg of clomid for just 3 days, starting on cycle day 3. I would love to hear more about your journey this cycle, and from anyone else who may have used clomid for only 3 days.
