150mg Clomid
Hallo Doc,
I have been on 100mg Clomid last month. I did not ovulate and my FS prescribed 150mg clomid for this cycle. I trust my FS, but the 150mg sounds like a very high dosage to me.
I just need your oppinion as well. What do you think?
I have PCO.

Dear Julia

It is well documented that very high doses of Clomid (in excess of 100mg per day) may not be of any benefit in conception, as this may result in adverse effects around the endometrium and therefore impede implantation. In cases where the ovaries are refractory to stimulation, the addition of injectables with lower dose Clomid may be of benefit in enhancing ovulation and follicle development.
