Ovulate On Your Own But On Clomid Did You Have Multiples

My question is-- Of those that ovulate on your own but still took clomid and conceived, how many of you have singletons or multiples? And what dosage did you take? I took clomid cd 3-7 ( cd 3,4 - 25mg and cd 5,6,7 - 50mg). I'm now 5 weeks pregnant and afraid of triplets or more. I did not take clomid to have multiples but did because I have only one fallopian tube and was told it would be very difficult to become pregnant - now that it has worked, I'm terrified!! Please tell me your stories!

There is only a 10% chance of having multiples on Clomid. There are a few women on here who would know more about it though. Were you being monitored by your doctor? A lot of women on here who are taking Clomid are being monitored and are aware of how many mature eggs are potential to fertilisation. Good Luck to you! Sorry I can't help more!

I always was told the same statistics about twins with clomid. Triplets are even more rare. Did you have u/s to monitor your cycle so you know how many follies you had?

No - I wasn't monitored by u/s. I go Monday for my first appt. I wasn't sure if the chances increased when you are already ovulating normally.

Actually those ladies that ovulate on their own decrease their chances of getting pg if they use clomid because it dries up your cervical fluid and shortens your luteal phase. It will not increase your chances of multiples. See the link http://forums.obgyn.net/pregnancy-birth/P-B.0306/1074.html **RE told me about Clomid and twins. 8% sounds about right however this risk is not equally applied to all women. In fact it is the oposite of what you would think. The highest rate of twins occurs in women who are not ovulating at all but are normal in all other respects. This means that if you get them to ovulate and there is more than one egg released there is a higher chance of twins since everything else is normal. If you are ovulating on your own the clomid is being used to hopefully get more than one egg released thus increasing your chances at a single pregnancy. Since the reason why you were having trouble conceiving is still present the odds of twins is much lower since both eggs would have to overcome whatever the problem is.**

I have PCOS and did two cycles of Clomid. I wasn't regularly ovulating on my own. I didn't get pregnant while on the Clomid cycle. After the 2nd cycle I was mean and moody and decided to stop doing it. I got pregnant on my own ovulation the next month. I had an early u/s that showed the largest two cysts were gone, which I think is due to the Clomid bursting them. Anyway, I had just had one baby in there, my dd :-)

Thanks guys for the rea__surance! Of the other threads that I have read about women who took clomid with normal ovulation, most of them got preg. with only one especially on the lower dose. I'm still scared though. I was thinking - does the clomid make you ovulate from both ovaries or just one? Because even if the clomid makes you O from both(which would increase the chance of multiples) I only have my right fallopian tube, so technically could only get preg. when I O from my right ovary - does that sound right? I'm just wondering and trying to rea__sure myself also. If anyone has anymore stories - please share!

well i would like to say a woman that o on her own and takes clomid to increase twins- yes it does happen everyday i have researched this also women who o reg can skip a month of ovulating if they take clomid on the month thier body skip ovulating then there chances are getting preg with one baby but a women taking clomid and already released an egg on her own the clomid will release one or more so as long as you don't have a problem with your cm drying up all eggs released could be fertile so what i'm saying its like fishing you never know just pray for twins if thats what you want and do everything you can to increase it without hurting yourself of course if you want only one baby pray for one.
