How is it going Foxy and Kiwilove?!

Still no ovulation here, CD16, so keeping my fingers crossed! But I'm feeling something happening down there I think!

Welcome to the group bridgmela! Were you ovulating before taking the Clomid?

Yay for both of you!!

Still no O here but I am hopeful! I feel like I might be close but the OPKs say no.

Jess due to my pcos I never had any luck with opk so I don't use them. Can you ask your doctor for an ultrasound to check for maturing follicles or a cd21 blood test to check your progesterone levels to check for ovulation?

Well in her words, the clomid probably won't work the first two cycles, so I won't be monitored till the third. But OPK's have worked for me in the past, so I don't know?

Without the clomid, my metformin only cycles have been about 60-70 days long. Before when I used to have normal cycles they would be 35 days long. So I suppose I may not ovulate till CD21 anyway? Or later because I heard late ovulation on Clomid is normal. I just also heard that if you don't ovulate by CD21 on Clomid you probably don't have viable eggs.

I've been looking at charts on fertility friend and there have been girls who O'ed later than CD21 and got pregnant but not very many

Hey Jess, what time do you usually take your opks.
I took mine mid day and then in the evening, I always did two a day. My opks dont usually get gradually darker.

I remember reading that they don't get gradually darker because LH spikes instead of rises. But then there was a thread on the OPK chart page that showed a gradual darkening, I'll link to it.

Here is my newest one and I think last night's is darker a little..or basically I'm driving myself crazy lol

I usually test in the evening and then when I get closer I used second morning bathroom break and evening to make sure to catch it. Plus I temp.
