I’m currently in my TWW of my 4th OI/TI cycle with 50 mg Clomid. I’ve produced one follicle each cycle but obviously have not become pregnant. This morning we had a consult with my RE about moving on and she suggested bumping up the Clomid to 100 mg to produce 2-3 follicles and IUI. My husband and I would prefer a singleton but appreciate the increased success that multiple follicles bring. My RE did say I could choose to stay on 50 mg, but as with most infertility decisions comes the “what if?”. I know that the twin rate is only about 7% but it’s still freaking me out. If your IUI was successful and had multiple follicles, could you tell me how many follicles you had and how many babies you ended up with?

Many women use Colmid but aren’t monitored, so they don’t know how many follicles they produced. It also depends on your age. I used Clomid/IUI 5 times and had 2-3 follicles and they were all BFN. But I was also in my early 40’s.
Another friend who already had a child naturally 5 years earlier. She used clomid when she was 39 or 40 (unmonitored) and had a singleton.
If you are unwilling to have twins or selectively reduce if you have more than twins, Clomid may not be the best route for you. You may want to go directly to IVF

I had 3 monitored clomid + IUI cycles, the 2 cycles i had 2 mature follies (100mg of Clomid) were BFNs and the cycle that I had 1 follie (150 mg of Clomid) I got a BFP with a singleton.
