I failed to respond to my first round. Doctor has upped my dose and I'll start 100mg on CD3-7. Currently on the third day of Provera to bring on AF.

Also, I've read Ovadrel corrects leutal phase defects so I wouldn't worry about progesterone levels either.
My doctor said Ovidrel makes you ovulate in 12-48 hours within receiving the shot. Who knows. Lots of info out there...

Good luck on your next cycle Sarah! Hopefully next one will be the one!
I am wondering if weeds have anything to do with this cycle...because before my fertile window DH just came back from business trip from Amsterdam...and I read that weeds can reduce male fertility....anyways just feeling kind of down to see bfn again...used a first response this morning
I guess onto next cycle!

Hi Carrie! Clomid staring on cd3 tends to make more eggs for more chances and clomid starting in cd5 tends to make less eggs but of better quality. I'm 34 and even though all testing was normal egg quality might be the issue given my age so I'm guessing that's why I was told to start on day 5. I think it just depends on what your OBGYN thinks will be more beneficial for your situation.. It might have to do with your cycle length as well.

Hi Babydust, clomid made my temps jump! I had side effects, headache, neck/backache, and hot flashes.. They started the very first day and lasted a few days after I stopped too. The backache I got was the worst for me.

2much, my hubby had a hard time too and it was sooo frustrating! It made him feel pressured and then things just wouldn't work. I ended up telling him that I'm just naturally more in the mood during my fertile window and I'd want to do him then anyways and for some reason that worked and it hasn't been an issue since. Sometimes it's easy to overlook how sensitive men really are.

Rawan, I think it almost always does. As in ovadrel not making you ovulate is extremely rare. I didn't have painful ovulation from it either and as I was kind of expecting that I was waiting for it. Maybe it happened while we were sleeping? I also kind of have sore ovaries after ovulation and this month I don't.. It crossed my mind that what if all these other months my ovaries didn't release the egg and that's why they were sore, from the follicles. Ahh, so much to speculate on. Just trust the trigger!

Sarah, what a bummer. I think if I don't get a bfp this month I'll be even more upset than usual. :: I hope you get AF soon and that the increased dosage your next cycle does the trick for you.

Good point Weebles, thanks for the advice! I know I had mentioned to him that I'm naturally more in the mood during the window, but I guess now that there is more invested (ugh lol) he probably feels pressured. Poor guy. I am trying not to overshare with him. Glad I have you ladies.

P.s. I got my way this morning, after all, haha. I know it is a "waste" because my trigger shot is 10/18, but I still want to have fun this cycle (mostly for his sake, lol).

Weebles-hopefully like you said, I should trust the trigger
maybe it's my af almost coming, I am extra emotional tonight. Sometimes I feel this bfp is never going to happen...everyone around me is getting pregnant...maybe i am one of those unexplained infertility...
I really feel like crying....
Btw, for temping, is one decimal point accurate enough? Anyone temp orally? Thanks!

Hope the 100mg does it for you, Sarah!

Weebles - I am thinking that may be my issue too...that it just takes longer to get a good egg the older you get. Both of my grandmothers had children at 40 so I'm hoping I got those good genetics!

Rawan - I temp orally. A basal thermometer that measures two decimal points is best from what I've gathered.

Thanks ladies. I hope 100mg does it too. It seems even harder when you're on fertility treatment but still don't ovulate. I get it when I wasn't taking anything. My doctor was so confident that at 50mg we'd be pregnant in no time. I just hope this makes me ovulate so we at least get a chance to try.

Well, egg whites isn't really first choice, haha but after a long Google search it seemed to be the best bet for us (actually found some old forum threads about it!) . But today I'm travelling out to the ONLY pharmacy in Thailand who currently stock conceive plus.. A rather bad decision seems like, with lots of traffic due to the passing of the King yesterday here in Thailand.. Next time I'll order online and hope it makes it in the mail!


Oh.. And didn't I get a big nice positive opk today since husband is away in China?! Hopefully we won't miss the window when he is back tomorrow night. I get so annoyed at his job sometimes, no point in me taking clomid if he won't be around anyway.. :/

Ps: I'm not followed up at all. I went to the Dr in June and ended up doing an u/s. Then my husband went to check his products, then I went back end of September where he asked me for how many months I wanted clomid (stupid me said 2 months) and I had to start the very same day (cd2).

Sarah- it's only a matter of your dr figuring out what is going to work for you.. And that's going to happen.

I'm hoping for those good genes too Ask! My mom had both my brother and I in her late 30's.

I'm currently 8 days post trigger and still have a faint line still on the first signal 88c Walmart tests. I thought it would be gone for sure by now.
