Just got back from the doctor..we have 5 folicles

Hello All!! My nerves are calming down a bit after going to the doc this morning. He said the Clomid worked and I have a total of 5 folicles. The left ovary has 1 that is 16-17mm and the right one has 4 smaller folicles. My doc told me that the left one looks great and I should ovulate in a couple of days (Friday). He said that I should use an ovulation kit to make sure when I do O and I'm supposed to call him on Mon to confirm one way or another. For those of you that have used Clomid and had an u/s before O, I don't have a high risk of Multiples do I? I'm assuming that the one big folicle will take over and that will be it. I was afraid to ask the doc because I would hate for him to think I'm being picky now! But twins......NO.. Don't think that would be very easy for me. Just curious what your thoughts are.

Thanks! -J

Take whatever comes your way and being on fertility drugs can (not always), but can increase your chances, especially with it also being hereditary.

I took 50mg of chlomid, then we did IUI. I had 2 folicles and they said that 1 was small and probably wouldn't take, but the other would hopefully take....Now here I am 14wks pregnant w/twins!!! I didn't take a big dosage of chlomid, and twins do run in my family so who knows. Good luck....I hope this works for you rather it be 1 or 5 babies.

Best Wishes to All!!
