Hi, I am TTC baby#1 from a year. I have been diagnosed with PCOS and insulin resistance. I am taking 2500 mg of Metformin daily (but I dont feel any side affects) and am on my first round of clomid. The problem I am facing is that on 50 mg of Clomid, my doctor ordered blood tests and ultrasound on CD11 and CD13. Each visit costed me $551. I really want a baby, but this is very expensive for a single income family. The stress of the money is not going to help me ovulate. So now my doctor has increased the dosage to 100mg for the next 5 days and again wants me to come in for bw and us. But I am wondering if just bloodwork would be enough to tell if I am responding to Clomid? Please help if anyone has the same circumstances...View Thread
Yes, I am on my second dosage too! I did not respond well to 50 mg at all, I had no follicles close to 10. I think my body is not responding to Clomid at all. I have to go on Sunday, but since the ultrasounds are so expensive, I am asking my doctor if she can just take the blood test and check my estradiol levels to see if I am even responding to it. Use an OPK to check if you are ovulating. All the best.View Thread
