1st clomid cycle - CD10 OPK




I am on my 1st (and hopefully only) clomid cycle, 50mg CD3-7. Took my first OPK today (CD10) at 4:00pm. OPK is looking pretty dark! CM is also feeling wet, but not EWCM.

Should I continue once a day around same time, or twice a day?

Even lighter today CD12 @ 7pm. Right side O pains started last night, feel a lot stronger when I lay on my side. CM is creamy but turning wet/watery. Fx

*I'll be updating daily with OPK/symptoms although it seems the OPK board is pretty inactive

CD13 - because I to torture myself, I dipped 2 sticks in today's urine and was very upset when they gave me different results when read at the 5 min mark (as instructed by packaging). However, when they completely dried about 20min later they looked the same AND they look even lighter than the previous 3 days...it's been 6 days since my last clomid pill and I feel pretty significant pain on my left side...hoping it's working!!!!

CD14 @ 1:00pm (had to test early due to meetings later in day, but plan to retest tonight) - barely there line... was kind of hoping it would be getting stronger today.

CD14 @ 9:00pm also attached (darker, but nowhere near + yet)

I'd keep testing until you get a true positive

I think I read somewhere that Clomid can mess with your OPK's and give you false positives. It might be that the darker line you saw on CD11 was due to leftover Clomid in your urine that is slowly fading away.

How's today's test looking?

I have also heard about the false positives with Clomid. But I think it's only for a couple days after your last pill. I would keep testing for a least a week. You could ovulate later than you think. I got strong + OPKs CD 19-23 this month.

Thanks! I'm thinking of switching to testing twice a day, but not sure if that will just drive me crazier. Here's today's test I feel it's a bit darker than yesterdays pm test and I've been having some intense right ovary pressure so I hope it's good news!

Here's CD15 @5pm

I agree, it does look a bit darker.

If you have a couple, I would totally test twice a day. The last two cycles I tested once a day from CD 10-14 or so, and tested twice when I started noticing more CM. I test with second morning urine and then again in the late afternoon/evening. Last Saturday I had a negative test in the morning and a positive test in the evening. The test was still positive the next day, but still glad I tested twice!

CD16 @ 5:15pm - lighter again! I feel so frustrated and I'm super "crampy" in my ovaries today. Will retest later tonight again.
