    Clomid Poll... When do you take it?

    I am doing my own study on when clomid is usually prescribed and who is prescribing it that way.
    So I will start....
    Days 5-9 by ob/gyn But I am trying it on days 1-5 this cycle
    Thanks a bunch for your help!

    My RE prescribed 5 days of Clomid starting on day 3, then a blood test at day 12 with follicle scan if E2 over 3000.

    Hope this helps

    I use it days 3-7, but was prescribed days 4-8 by my ob/gyn, she told me it really doesn't matter which days you use it.

    You Guys are great Thank you for your responses. Keep them coming please.
    I wanted to share something I found on the net. I think It is worth passing along if it is true. I will paste a part of the article here as well as leave the link for you to see for yourself.
    "Clomid is available in 50-mg tablets that are taken on days 5-9 of your cycle or, less typically, on days 4-8 or 3-7. There is some preliminary research that indicates that an earlier start date may result in more pregnancies, but most gynecologists continue to prescribe it for days 5-9. One recent study actually tried prescribing Clomid on cycle days 1-5. While none of the participants in their day 5-9 groups resulted in pregnancy, 24 percent of the women who took Clomid on days 1-5 were able to conceive."

    OB/GYN just upped my dose to 100 mg a day, CD 3-9. One in the morning, and one at night for 7 days, not 5 like normal. He said that this strategy is more natural then both at the same time. Hope he's right. Does anybody else think this is true?
