I then had to take a month off because I had to have hand surgery. The next Cycle day three i started taking my Clomid, I went in on Day 12 and I had a small 13mm follicle on my left ovary and a large 28mm. The doc said that the larger one indicates it is probably left over from the previous cycle and should go away for the next cycle. I said ok and he canceled me after taking the Clomid. Day three of my next cycle, last week, I went in to check for cysts and there was the same round figure on my left ovary, approx 28mm and the doctor, who was a substitute that day, said it could either be a cyst or a left over follicle. I think a lot of readers can benefit from the discussion of this topic. What happens on the cycle day 3 if that follicle/cyst is still there? How do you make a follicle/cyst absorb, without taking BCP. I was just curious because I saw your discussion on here about cysts and follicles. I’m going to address the reply to everyone in general, but there should be some food for thought in this discussion that you can toss around with your own RE. Just a reminder for those of you who have decided to see RE’s — You are already getting the ultimate in specialist care, so take advantage of the chance to ask them questions, especially when something unexpected, like a cyst, occurs. With the suspension of Cincinnati Reds pitcher Edinson Volquez for performance enhancing drug use and a swirl of rumors that the agent involved was clomiphene (also known as Clomid,) I thought it timely to write about how clomiphene works and how it’s used. From what I read on the internets, there is an enormous amount of misinformation floating around out there. To understand how clomiphene works, you need to know how the pituitary controls the making of testosterone in the testis. Testosterone is made by Leydig cells in the testis, which I explained in my last post. The pituitary releases a hormone called luteinizing hormone (“LH”) that stimulates the Leydig cells to make testosterone. Testosterone is converted to the female hormone estrogen, (which I also explained in my last post,) and estrogen tells the pituitary to stop making more LH. This kind of negative feedback system is common when it comes to how hormones work. As the room gets warmer, the thermostat sends less electricity to the heater.
I was wondering the same thing as I am on CD 11 of my first clomid cycle. I went to another bulletin board and found a link to this helpful ovulation calculator. You enter the date you started taking Clomid and it will tell you the window that you most likely will ovulate in. But be careful I have. Do you have questions about PCOS?
