Ladies I have an awkward question to ask.
Does having sex before doing opk can impact test result ? I mean does semen in urine after sex or pre-seed can impact opk result ?

I am 99.99% sure that having sex before taking an opk won't affect the results, I probably peed on 700 opks for the past 18 months and it really only turned positive when I actually had the lh surge.

I guess if there is too much semen in the cup and not enough urine, the test line won't be showing as it should.

Is your opk positive today? If so this is awesome, Clomid seems to be working wonders!.. I hope it works for me too, cd 5 today...

Thank you joy
Then little pre-seed there won't affect the opk result right along with semen ?

No, I haven't got +opk yet. I will test today in the afternoon.
Day before yesterday there was an extremely faint test line (barely there) on opk and I had no cm. Then yesterday I started to get ewcm and test line on opk was clearly visible. May be one shade lighter than the control line.

I think today it will be close to positive and tomorrow it will be positive. Let's see.

I hope clomid work for all of us.
How are you doing ?

Yay for positive OPK!!!! I always thought every day from the positive OPK but my doc has advised us that every other day is best so that is what we are sticking to. Or trying to, we got a little carried away this morning

Happy 4th all! If you are American buddies

I am thinking about throwing my chart to the wind. It is so weird and with the trigger I know I already O'ed

Happy July 4th ladies!

todmommy you were triggered on cd12. You must have already ovulated. Don't know what's up with your chart though

Did you feel any pain around the time you expected to ovulate ? I don't feel anything major so far. I have heard ladies say they get to feel ovulation when on clomid. I am worried whether clomid is working it's magic or not!

Hi Ladies!!!

I took clomid from cd2-6 & have been experiencing cramps over the last 4 days. Well, today I got the solid smiley face on the OPK so my IUI will happen tomorrow morning!

Alright Ladies!! Question - since this is my first month with Clomid I'm curious what you all think...

I was given the following schedule:
CD 1-4 nothing
CD 5 - 9 Clomid
CD 10 - 14 Nothing
CD 15 - 25 BD every other day
CD 26 - 33 Progesterone ....

SO! I took my OPK this morning CD 13 and I got a smiley face which is earlier than predicted by my Dr... I am going to start BD today... but do I move the Progesterone up to CD 23 instead? I have a VM into my Dr but was curious what you ladies think...

Fairyy I had ovulation pain. That is normal for me though even when not on clomid so I wasn't too surprised, I did use a heating pad this month though and usually it is not severe enough to warrant any interventions. It only lasts a couple hours, you can do it! How have things been going?

Joy how are things for you?

Welcome piper! That is so exciting!!

I got my temp rise today finally! I did a manual override on my chart though and put my O day on cd14 since I had O pains the evening of cd13 I thought that seemed to be the most accurate. I know someone else who had confirmed ovulation by ultrasound and didn't get a temp rise until 4 days later so definitely possible. I am glad I got my rise though so now I don't feel like we have to keep BD'ing haha. I have been testing out my trigger and it is getting pretty light. I am going to do a test with FMU tomorrow to see where it's at and then planning to do my first "real" test on Saturday morning
