Has anyone here taken it cd1-5?
I'm doing it cd2-6 because last time I did it 5-9 and no pg. I was going to do 3-7 but wanted an extra day because dh is going out of town and hoping I can cover O.
BTW, when I have taken it before I O'd 8 days after the last pill.
Interesting study. Most people I know who used clomid took it cd 5-9, and got pg.

I'm on my first cycle of Clomid. I did days 3-7, but I took it at night so it is close to 4-8. I think if I go again, I might try nights 2-6. I also might go right to IUI to cut out the cf problems. Anyway, I don't have a confirmed O yet and am really curious as to when it will happen (or maybe it is happening right now?).
By my next pregnancy (3 years later--she is now 10) they were telling me to take it days 1-5. I balked at that, as 5-9 had worked before, but the doctor said that they were showing more success with clomid taking it earlier in the cycle. As far as I know, there have been several studies showing that taking it earlier is a bit more effective.
I was treated at California Pacific Hospital in San Francisco for my infertility.

When I was on Clomid I did it 5-9 and Oed CD21, then I did 3-7 and Oed earlier, I think CD17, but it was a while ago, I can't remember.
1st round CD 1-5 at 100mg, O day 18, pregnancy, m/c.
2nd round CD 3-7 at 100mg, O day 20, nothing.
3rd round CD 2-6 at 100mg, O day 17, nothing.
4th round CD 2-6 at 100mg, O day 18, nothing.
5th round CD 2-6 at 100mg, gonal-f injections days 7, 9, & 12 (double dose) with trigger day 14, O on day 15, and nothing.
This cycle was without meds, and with out charting. Good luck to you.
