Clomid days 2-6

I am new at taking Clomid this is my first cycle. I was just wondering If anyone else has taken it from cycle days 2-6? I read 3-7 or 5-9 but not 2-6? Also I am using the Instead cups my doctor recomended them to me. Has anyone else tried the instead cups? It is sopossed to trap the sperm inside and you can leave it in for 12 hours!

Well crud. What do I do? TOday is cd 2...do I start today or wait till tomorrow? Either way I am thinking of taking it at midnight when I get home from work, which would technically be cd 3, but really lIKE cd 2. I'll admit I'm doing this without my doc knowing...but I've had a pelvic u/s to clear me, and have had a script before.

I'll also admit I 'd love twins. Having a tubal ligation after the next one, so uhm yeah would love to get 2 out of it.

I tried 2-6 last month and have not gotten my period and my hcg - so I dont think its working out like this for us! The Dr said 2-6 is sopossed to make you spit out more eggs! I didnt ovulate this month according to my dr and I did when I took it cycle days 3-7! I am gonna try it one more time 2-6 then make him switch me to 3-7...

Baby Dust to all! Stace

MM~

I had cut and pasted the same info and put it on this site. I was wondering if anyone had tried it. My doc really doesn't have a preference. He says all women are different and cycles are different. I will try 2-6 or 3-7 next cycle and definately let dr know but he is ok with it. My doc is very laid back.

I saw one study of taking it cd 1-5. No joke. Said I think 25% of the participants got preggo too.

I recently was told (by a parenting community admin) that cd 3-7 tends to make more eggs, while cd 5-9 focuses on a stronger (usually single) egg? Not sure if it is true or not. I'm thinking of tkaing it 4-8? I'm weird. Next cycle is going to be my 1st on clomid...my DH finally agreed.

Yeah, they are on the top shelf (at my store) with the tampons. It is a cup like thing you "insert" to use in place of tampons.

You know I saw those cups at Target today and I was tempted to buy them but didn't. I think it sounds like a logical idea.
