I would imagine it should make you O earlier. It's speeding up the ripening of the follicle so you'd imagine it'd be released earlier. But it's probably no guarantee. What CD do you ladies usually O?
I'm not sure if I O naturally or not. I've been charting my cycles for the past 6 cycles. In each of those cycles I have had a temp rise, generally fertile CM around the same time but never a positive OPK. I usually get the temp rise around CD22-23 and AF arrives 12-15 days later. But I've had blood tests to check my progesterone level in three of those cycles, the blood tests were all done after my temp rise and none of them showed ovulation. My ovaries were also full of follicles/cysts which the fertility specialist said meant a dominant follicle wasn't being released to kill the smaller follicles off. He said based on that, I'm not ovulating and I have PCOS.
Ive Googled a lot and haven't found much about getting a temp rise but still not ovulating. So who knows what's going on for me.
Hopefully we all just make some super eggs on clomid and all get BFPs this cycle!
I didn't get one of those either mod and I'm taking Clomid for anovulation/PCOS. I'm not being monitored apart from the CD21 test.
When do you take your first Clomid ask? What days and what dose?
Anyone else feeling overly optimistic about it? After months of feeling pretty negative all of a sudden I've almost convinced myself we will get a BFP this cycle. I know it'll probably end up with disappointment and we'll be onto the next cycle.
I'm taking 50mg days 5-9...but I threw myself a curveball and may have to wait one more cycle to try. I work at a health foods store and my supervisor suggested I use progesterone creamy, so I did but misunderstood the days I was supposed to use it (oops!). I used it days 1-14 instead of the 14 days prior to the start of my period. And today I had brown spotting. Then when I went to the bathroom after dtd there was light bleeding, like the start of my period, but I'm only on cd17 with no ovulation yet...hopefully I didn't screw things up too much where it takes a few cycles to get back on track. I'll see what the bleeding looks like tomorrow to get a better idea of what's going on.
I asked the fertility clinic about how clomid will affect the ovluation date, but they told me each woman responds differently, so we have to wait and see. My next ultrasound is day 8. Anyone heard of trigger shot before? I heard that some women on clomid use trigger shot to release the egg. I also read that clomid can dry up cm, anyone has any suggestion for that? EPO? Preseed? Hope we all get our bfp soon!
Hi ladies! I'm so glad you made a thread Ask. This is my first cycle on Clomid too, 50mg on days 5-9 so I won't start until Tuesday. I go in for an ultrasound on the 14th of October and have to decide at that point if I want to trigger or not with Ovadrel. I think I'm going to just go for it! I'm not going to stress this month at all and let someone else be in control.
Maybe you'll just have a short but strong surge! I'm looking forward to BD when the dr says, not having to think or worry anymore. Did your dr recommend opk's? Mine just wants me to come in for an ultrasound.
I hope so! The dog woke me up early so I didn't temp this morning. I don't usually get positive OPKs so I don't know if they'll actually work for me on clomid. I tried to check my CM last night and I think it was watery but there's not that much of it.
No the doctor was strictly against me tracking my cycle at all. He said no temping, OPKs and CM checking. He said just BD and CD21 test to check if I ovulated. I can't help myself though so I'm doing all of those things haha.
Sarah I know for a fact that I ovulated on cd 16 with dd. I had a positive opk that morning but by the time I went to the dr the eggs must have already released because they said there were no follicles and didn't look like I had ovulated.. well I ovulated all right!
We are getting plenty of BDing in so even if I miss my surge on the OPKs I'll be covered. I'm feeling nothing in my ovaries though. The one cycle I know that I definitely O'd on my own, I got ovulation pains.
I've read of others Oing as late as CD 20 on Clomid so I know I still have time. I was just hoping it'd be early in my cycle.
