Hello,

I have PCOS and responded very well to clomid - almost too well. My doctor started me on 100mg of clomid due to my chronic anovulation. That cycle had to be cancelled as I produced 10 large follicles. Even on 50mg I always produced 3-4 mature follicles (I had to drop down to 25mg).

I will be doing IVF soon and was wondering if this put me at greater risk for OHSS? I know because of PCOS I will be monitored closely.

Me: 33

DH: 35

 

TTC since Sept. 2011

 

Aug. 2012 - DX with PCOS (started metformin)

Aug. 2012 - Oct 2012 - clomid + trigger , timed X2 - BFN

Oct 2012-Jan 2013 - clomid + trigger IUI X3 - BFN

 

Took a break until the spring to begin IVF -

 

June 1 - Started BCPs

June 24 - Start stimming....75iu meopur, 75iu puregon

June 27- (moved up to 100iu of puregon)

June 29 (moved up to 150 iu of puregon)

July 1 - scan...6-10 follicles expected on ER day

July 3 - last day of stimming, HCG trigger

July 5 - ER.....8 Retrived, 5 mature, 5 fertilized

July 7 - 5 embryos

July 8 - ET (2, grade 1 embryos transferred), 3 embryos to be frozen (1 - grade 1, 2 - grade 2)

 

July 22 - BFP!!! 

July 24 - Beta repeated - numbers doubling....fingers crossed for a healthy pregnancy!!

I respond well to clomid too, but not as much as you do.  I make usually 3-4 mature follicles on 100mg.  My RE said that we will do low dose injectables to ensure that I don't over stimulate.  Good Luck to you!


TTC #2 since the birth of our DD in 2006
10 IUI's done from 2011-2013

Three BFP's turned into one ectopic and two chemicals

 

IVF treatment had been officially offered and accepted...but...

Instead of CD1 to start stims, I got a miracle, natural th_abfp.gif  biggrin.png

Due May 12, 2014 - Due date changed to May 8th based on ultrasound

Stick, miracle baby, stick!
