      thanks alot for the reply. atleast SOMEBODY replied! lol. anyway, yeah, so shes super excited when i told her that this is gud. but sad thing is she didnt have sex yesterday when she got to know the eggs ruptured. so i advised her not to lose heart and do the deed today. now, how do u know WHEN the eggs ruptured is the qs. she got to know yesterday but maybe it ruptured before??? u said "the egg survives for 12-24 hours"..do u mean the egg that got out of the follicle must have died by now?? i hate to say tis, but why do i feel she just lost the chance????

      Once an egg ruptures, it does live for 12 to 24 hours. Sperm live up to 3 days. Thats why they say best to do the deed just prior to egg release. Its worth a try. I had 3 cycles on clomid and up to 4 ruptured eggs but never acheived pregnancy. I needed to move on to the injectibles. So you dont necessarily get twins with 2 eggs. If it doesnt work this time, she's right to move on to the next step - most docs will not do more than 6 cycles of clomid.

      Anyway, fingers crossed and good luck to your friend!

      thx for the reply. the thing is, when she went to doc on day 15 of her period she said the follicles are way too big but she asked to have sex for 2 days. but yesterday the doc didnt advise her to have sex which was a bit weird and i told her she shud have asked on her own.

      MO3 what do u mean by injectibles as in pregnyl and others, but i think they are used for rupturing only. what injectibles are u talkin abt?

      there is no way she is gonna b on clomid next cycle... she said however she has been asked by doc to continue glucophage(metformin) 850 mg x 3 times per day. sometimes ppl get preg with glucophage itself.

      please pray for her every1. her family, her in laws all of them are. and there is nothin in the world that wud make me happy as much as her news wud.

      You're a good friend mall, the gal is lucky to have a friend like you!

      For now, its just that interminable wait. Theres a chance that she will have good news, dont give up yet!

      The injectibles I used were called Follistim I think. that was from day 1 to day 10. Then a "trigger shot" (I think it was HcG) to get the follicles to rupture. These are much more powerful than clomid. Anyway, for now, just fiingers crossed and sending prayers her way!

      The follistim is very powerful. You have a daily injection on days 1 thru 10 and during this time have to go for daily ultrasound to make sure that there isnt an over-abundance of follicles developing. They also take measurements of all follicles and when they reach a certain size, the trigger shot is given to release the eggs, patient is then either told to come in the next day for articifial insemination or directed to do the deed that night (depending on the particulars of the case).

      hmmm...its been such a long time so I dont know if I'm recalling correctly but I seem to remember that sometimes, the egg matures but does not rupture and it keeps growing and becomes more of a cyst than a functional egg. A healthy ripe egg is of a certain size and once it gets too far beyond that, it really isnt a functional follicle anymore. Please forgive if I'm wrong about that, its been 8 years since I've dealt with it all so I may not be remembering it completely correctly.

      hey MO3 & PP, thanks for the replies, its really comforting to read ur replies yes she has pcos as far as i know. that is her biggest prb. she has no idea when it ruptured. i asked her if she felt any pain but she said the only time she felt some discomfort was day 15 of her period (when she checked{by ultrasound} and her sizes were too big). that time doc had said she experienced this becus of the size of this thing. at that time she also feared that this mite become a cyst cus its too big but doc assured if it dusnt rupture, it will disappear in the next cycle. but things changed on day 22 when she went for another scan and they had ruptured.

      Also PP you had said,
      so if she's had intercourse within that time beore ovulation, fertilization is possible.

      she said she had sex on days 15 and 16 only that was the time her follicles were big. she also had sex before that but i m not sure what days.

      i have advised her to have sex today. she still has 9 days to go before she tests... just like u PP!!!!! i hope both of u give the gud news together... AMEEEN!!!!

      Sometimes nature needs a bit of assistance Icon...

      The "on-demand" channel is for fun and enjoyment, one of those channels that cost extra lol but the "parent" channel is included in the contract, you gotta subscribe to it whether you like the programs or not

      iconoclast, that is an interesting question. i believe it is natural but you can do things to help get you in the mood.
      sorry... but i didnt get it. m totally nil in this :P so u mean to say her eggs ruptured cus there WAS sum sperm around? i didnt understand in what context you were sayin that.

      and iconoclast, it can b difficult but the couple is really wantin a baby badly so the hubs is obviously supportive. its not like they are doin it for fun or timepass u know, they want a baby and for that they have to do the needful. its all abt priorities... nothin rocket science abt it.

      well thats what i am saying, doing it for sake of doing it, takes teh spontaniuty out of it, that cud act as a turn off
