OPK confusion / Clomid


I took Clomid CD3-7. I started testing on CD10 and all my OPKs until CD13 were really dark, but on CD13 it was OBVIOUS positive. Like no denying.

Well CD15 u/s showed only 1 follicile at 10mm and thin lining, 2mm. A bust cycle basically... RE didn't see any signs of past O.

I've been taking OPKs still since I thought I got a positive on CD13, and today, CD16 - they are still super duper dark.

What is going on???!

Do you have a pic of the opk? Was it definitely positive? I think all you can do is keep testing, it might just be that you ovulate late x

With both my boys I O'd on CD13, but I guess anything is possible!

I've attached two pics of CD13s tests.

They're cesinly really dark, maybe a smidge off positive though? So hard to tell as I know for some people this is as dark as their positive gets. Fingers crossed that you do ovulate this cycle x

You CANT use FMU!!

Pick a different time of day, then start testing at that time every day and youll see the difference. I have FMu, 3pm and 7pm. My FMu specifically asks for FMU though, yours does NOT.

If they're still really dark then I think that means ovulation is still pending! Try drinking some raspberry leaf tea to get that lining to thicken up and some Vit C to help bring on ovulation! Do you have any more tests/scan scheduled?

I tested FMU and 12:30 also again around 5pm. I usually don't test FMU but did that day since I have ovulated in the past on CD13.

Well def. try some red raspberry leaf tea and Vit C! I also bought some soymilk to try. I have another u/s Friday morning!

FMu will give a false +, thats why you shouldnt test then... i would trust the 5pm one though
