I am, I'm going to stick with the cheapy ones from ebay. I've read that you shouldn't use them for 3 days following your last dose of Clomid per cycle as it can affect the result. Not sure how true this is, can someone confirm please?
I have used them through out my clomid months ...
Although I tend to stick to my CBFM .... the 1st month you might need to take the results with a little pinch of salt as your body adjusts, you might get a longer period of 'positive' results due to the hormone increases ....
So also use all the other signs to help pinpoint o .. such as CM, O cramps etc.
i used clomid for 3 months & used opk's, but after a year of being confused by internet cheapies & as my doc wouldn't do bloods or scan i bought digital opks, much more expensive but at least i knew for sure that i o'd.
AF started at around 1am this morning but has been incredibly light all day - do I still count today as CD1? My GP said that as soon as she arrives however light thats CD1 but I always counted the first full day with heavy flow as CD1.
So anyways, due to start first round of Clomid on days 2-6, would you class tomorrow as CD2? Or Monday?
Also it's my first time on Clomid and I don't know why but I'm feeling quite anxious about taking it, did anyone else feel like this? Think I'm worrying about the side effects and whether people will notice anything "different" about me while I'm taking it, I haven't told anyone apart from my 2 best friends about it you see. Thought about telling my dad but then OH will probably want to tell his parents (we haven't told either that we're trying) and his mom can't keep anything to herself!
Sorry rambling now someone just tell me to pull myself together please
Are you having to use a towel or tampon?
If so that's CD1 .. as long as it's 'flow' and is red coloured rather than brown intermittent spotting that is CD1.
I'd take your 1st clomid tablet tomorrow night, just before you go to sleep, with big drink of water .. they taste nasty!
So you'll be taking it tomorrow night, mon night, tues night, wed night and last on thurs night.
You won't notice any really 'bad' or drastic side effects, some girls get flushes .. but taking it late at night minimises this.
Also I had minor headaches .. nothing really bad, just a mild 'rumbling' that lasted a couple of days. You might find your tearful or crabby .. but you can pass that off as PMT! Haha I did!
Don't worry to much honey, I was stressed about it before my 1st cycle but it really is ok
