Patient :I was prescribed Clomid (for 5 days) and Decan (for 14 days) to be taken everynight starting Day 2 of my menstrual cycle. I also have an appointment for an ultrasound exactly 14 days from the prescribed date. However I missed my 2nd dose of both last night (the first time I took both at 10pm). What should I do now?
Thanks for the query to ATD for an opinion,
The protocol used is fine and used for clomifene resistant cases to increase sensitivity to the drug with concomitant use of dexamethasone tabs.
If you have accidentally missed your first dosage for both drugs on day 2 of menses then there is no real need of worry, you may start from today or day 3 and continue till day 7 ( 5 days- both drugs) and then dean to be continued for 14 days and then you can easily go ahead with your scheduled scan on day 14 for checking follicle size and possible ovulation and need for HCG trigger.
So please don't panic, you are still very much in the cycle and start the first dose from today.
I hope I have answered your query,
Wishing you a successful cycle,
