Welcome, Weebles! My doc didn't say anything about a trigger shot...wondering if I should ask when I go in on CD13?

Took pill #2 today (taking CD4-CD8). So far no side effects that I've noticed.

That's good to hear Joy. I didn't have any side effects except a slight headache on day 4 of taking it.

I'm CD 15 today and still no O. Temps dropped and OPK was ever so slightly darker. My CM has definitely dried up so I might try and get some muccinex and grapefruit juice today and keep using preseed.

I ended up taking clomid on CD4-8 because I had a really light bleed after provera and checked in with the specialist. By the time I got blood test results and the go ahead to start I was on CD4 not CD3 like I was prescribed. I've seen lots of people taking it 3-7 or 5-9 but no one really on 4-8. Initially I assumed 1 day would be no big deal but I hope I didn't ruin my chances.

Ask, TBH I was feeling really hesitant about the trigger shot and almost turned it down.. In the end I decided to trust my dr and if he suggests something I will do it and if he doesn't I will not. It feels good to just leave it all up to someone else!

Sarah, when do you normally ovulate? Is this late for you?

Definitely go for it if it increases your chances.

Well I'm not sure if I do O. My blood tests and ultrasound suggest that I don't ovulate but I get a rise in my chart anywhere between CD 20-27. The specialist said I would ovulate between CD11-18 on Clomid.

My CM has gone back to creamy. I wish I was being monitored so I knew if there was something happening.

I don't know why my doc prescribed cd4-8...but I've read other posts where women said it worked for them!

Oh Joy that makes me feel relieved! I couldn't find much about Clomid CD4-8. I read that 3-7 increases the chance of multiples of 5-9 increases the chance of a good quality egg. They also did a study of CD1-5 and found women who'd failed 5-9 had a good chance on 1-5.

I showed DH my OPKs and he agreed they're getting darker.

Joy, why did the doctor start you on Clomid?

Also, I took my last dose 7 days ago and the past 3-4 nights I've been really hot when I sleep and today and yesterday I've been having hot flushes.

I was really hot last night too, Sarah. Headache today and felt more emotional yesterday. Not sure if its just me or side-effects. Anyone else need to pee a lot more?

I start tomorrow and I'm curious about what side effects I might have. I'll update if I notice anything.. It'll almost be like symptom spotting during the tww. I'm more excited about this than I should be, lol.

I had a little bit of a headache on day 4 but I didn't need to take anything for it. No increased weeing that I noticed. I know it can make you emotional and give you mood swings. DH told me I wasn't allowed to turn into a 'Clom-a-monster'. I only started getting the hot flushes 4-5 after finishing my last tablet.

I'm CD 16 and no ovulation. My left ovary feels a little bruised though
