I have PCOS - started clomid on 2/6/2012

Came in for CD12 scan - had a few follicles 10mm and 1 follicle 12mm

I have to come back tomorrow for another scan.

But I am really anxious and nervous.. Are these follicle size normal?

What Should I expect tomorrow?

The goal for ovulation induction is one dominant follicle to emerge, and it sounds like you are on track.  Sometimes it can take longer for patients with PCOS so hang in there, and good luck with tomorrow's scan.

Hello and welcome to Fertile Grounds.  These follicle sizes are most certainly normal early in a Clomid cycle.  It sounds like you just need some more time for us to see how your ovaries are responding to the medication, particularly if you don't ovulate on your own without Clomid.  When you are monitored tomorrow, the doctor will assess your ovaries again to see if the follicles have grown.  You will likely also have your blood drawn for us to see if your hormones are changing as a result of the Clomid.  Hang in there and good luck!

"MindyK, Congratulations! I hope you have an easy pregnancy. I am staying positive and hoping that the second round takes. My take away from the last cycle is that the letrozole worked and that I am one step closer to pregnancy. Karen"

It finally happened! We are pregnant!

I posted my first entry on this site sometime around October or November of 2014, and I want to share my experience with everyone in hopes to offer some encouragement.My husband and I came to DF after three years trying to conceive. I have PCOS and was told by my GYN that I would either never have children or it would be incredibly difficult to get pregnant. We saw Dr. Payson for the initial consult in October, and after the initial testing, we came back for a follow-up on 11/6/14. Everything…See More

When to try for second Ivf baby

I conceived a child through ncivf at dominion and am interested in when would be a good amount of time before trying for a second one. We know we will need to do IVF again and I'm unsure how that affects timing- does it? I also had a c-section- does that affect when to do another Ivf cycle? Also is breastfeeding a problem? I got my cycle back after two months and my baby is now twelve months old. Is it okay to do Ivf while breastfeeding? What about only minimal breastfeeding when the baby is…See More
