First cycle - 6 Follicles!

This is my first cycle on clomid. Hubby and I have been trying to conceive for 5 years with no luck. I went in for my follicle scan two days ago and I had 6! that was CD 14.
Took an opk today which was positive.

Have you had a large amount of follicles which either all implanted, or just a few, or just one?
Or know of anyone else?

I'm just wondering if with that many follicles, is there a high high chance for multiples are will just one 'beat out' the others?

How big are the follies? I've had several cycles where I had between 6-5 follies. Some continue to grow others do not. Good luck

At my scan one was 20 and the rest were 15-17.

Those are good sizes. I hope you catch it. Are you doing IUI or timed BDing

I had 4 great follicles the cycle that I got successfully pregnant. I only conceived one baby. And that was with injectables and iui. I would say its definitely possible but not super likely. Typically high order multiples (like the gosslins) are from injectables and iui.

I can't wait to see how it goes for you!! I hope you catch an eggie!! What did your Dr day?

Ya I'm not expecting high multiples because like you said we didn't use iui or injectables or anything. Lol but my Dr must have told us like 3 times before we left the office that there was an increased chance for twins. Lol. I'm 5 dpo now and having a lot of cramping. I'm going to test next week.

*pg ment*

My very first symptom where I knew I was pregnant was cramping and soreness where my ovaries are. I always develop a corpus luteum cyst (helps support the pregnancy in the early stages) and when I could feel it at around 7 DPO I knew I must be pregnant. When will you be testing?? Fingers crosses that this cycle gives you a sticky BFP!! I hope those cramps are a good sign! I'll be stalking Wink

I'm 10 dpo today and I've been having more cramps! On 8 dpo I had bad cramps and a backache, thought for sure AF was coming early, but that is way early for it to come, so I'm hoping this is a good thing. I'm going to be testing tomorrow. . . It'll only be 11dpo so even if it is negative I won't be too bummed because it's still early.. . but I would love to know sooner rather than later if I am! Smile

Sorry about the BFN!! Fingers crossed it was just too early. How many DPO are you? Do you have a blood test scheduled?

I have my follicle scan the 26th....this is my 4th round of clomid,, the 1st round seen I started seeing my RE that's actually doing IUI the end of the month for me....My 1st 3 rounds of Clomid were pretty much a waste, my GYN did it and there were no follicle scans or anything....Hope it works for you
