I used to think clomid was my miracle drug but now I have pretty much lost faith in it.

What cd are you? Will you be testing soon? I'm on cd20.

Welcome to our group Kayley! Sometimes it is just nice to know we are not alone in this. It has really helped me to talk to all of you on here!

So I had my first ultrasound today (day 14). I had one good follicle!! That is good, but I haven't had a positive OPK yet. Should I continue to test? My doctor says we should start our timed intercourse today, because of the follicle. I think I will continue with the OPK and see if I get a positive test. I will have my progesterone test on day 21 to confirm ovulation.

If it was affordable I would test. I did this cycle to try and keep me sane.

Thanks for the advice, Mommyagain. Today I am on day 16, and I have been doing OPK since day 12. I haven't had a positive one yet, even though I had a follicle in my ultrasound. Does anyone know what OPK actually test? Is it if the egg has been released from the ovary or if the egg is mature?

OPKs test for a surge of luteinising hormone, which happens when the follicle has matured. The LH surge triggers ovulation, so it's not telling you that an egg has already been released. It also triggers the conversion of the remaining follicle into the corpus luteum, once the egg has been released.

OPKs are not really much help in telling you whether you ovulate or not. They can actually make you miss ovulation if you stop testing after the first LH surge, as sometimes you won't ovulate until after a second (or even third) surge, though that's more common if you have PCOS.

I think no LH surge probably just means that your follicle isn't mature yet. Fingers crossed it'll come along soon!
