    clomid challenge results - what's good?


    hey guys,

    so i just finished a 7 day clomid test @25mg/day and got about a 30% jump in TT. still have my appt. coming up but trying to decipher if this is a good sign of secondary. i have seen people upwards of 50% but this was at 50mg-plus and 3-4 weeks of treatment. what do you guys think?

    thanks!

    Dr needs to be reschooled on proper clomid challenge. 50 mgs would give a better indication, but a 30% jump was suitable.

    I had a 220% jump at 25mg. That's pretty good, right?

    I took it for 7 days. I went from about 200 to 750 ng/dl.

    It is. My doctor actually prefers it because it preserves the pulsatile nature of LH release whereas gels and injections hammer your androgen receptors non-stop throughout the day.

    long term adminstration is not advisable due to potential side effects

    Other stuff as well... Article Eric wrote on clomid and nolva, pretty good read. Definitely not suggested for long-term use.
