Clomiphene citrate

If you don't respond well to other stimulation protocols, a course of clomiphene citrate (to which your doctor may add FSH injections) can stimulate growth of a few follicles. You usually take CC for five consecutive days, starting early in the cycle. When the largest follicle reaches about 16 mm in diameter, your blood is tested daily to check the level of luteinising hormone and ensure that you aren't about to ovulate before the eggs are retrieved. All being well, the level indicates that you aren't about to ovulate and you have a single injection of hCG to trigger maturation of the eggs ready for retrieval two days later. If the level shows that you're getting ready to ovulate, egg retrieval is brought forward accordingly. Sometimes your doctor prescribes you a GnRH antagonist for the last day or two before the hCG trigger injection, to make sure that you don't ovulate before egg collection.

The first trimester is very important for the mother and the baby. For most women it is common to find out about their pregnancy after they have missed their menstrual cycle. Since, not all women note their menstrual cycle and dates of intercourse, it may cause slight confusion about the exact date of conception. That is why most women find out that they are pregnant only after one month of pregnancy.
