I'm a little puzzled.

So I took clomid (150mg) days 8-12. I saw the doctor again and he asked me to come in on Day 18 for my sonogram. This sounds too late to me in terms of then taking the ovidrel shot. I asked 3 times if this was correct information- two on the spot, and called back once again to have this confirmed. All three times he said, yes, come back on day 18.

I have no reason not to trust the dr, and accept that me must have a reason. And yet I don't want to lose another month.

Strange, did he have a reason? I've only ever heard of Clomid days 2--6 or 3--7.

To answer the question you left on SQ, you can take it for 9 cycles, but it isn't recommended because it thins uterine lining and dries mucous. Is there a reason why 9 cycles was thrown out as a number?

Sorry, and 5--9. Some people start Clomid later.

someone had earlier in the comment thread mentioned having taken it for 9 cycles hence my question... I'll check with the dr. I finished my 3rd cycle, and hate to think my clomid days are limited. As I guess that means accepting more invasive forms of treatment.
