    Hi Ladies

    I have my FS first appointment soon and im getting curious :thumbup:

    My last period was in september 2010 would they give me something to enduce my period? If so what is it?

    If they give me clomide, when do I start doing the O tests? I want to make sure I have enough. Also do I only do one OPK a day or two?


    Thanks :hugs:

    they may give you provera to induce af, i have to take 10mg for 7 days and then af should arrive within 10 days of finishing them though doc said it often arrives within 3-5 days x

    Once AF started, I took Clomid CD5-9... then Ovulated on CD14 and had the insemination that day. Once I got a Pos+ OPK I just called and they scheduled me the next morning.

    I started using the OPKs on CD10. The day after I stopped taking the Clomid... as I wasn't sure how it would affect my overall cycle, I figured best to start a bit early. Also, not sure it was due to the Clomid or not, but my Luteal phase was pushed out 1 day. Instead of AF arriving at 14 dpo, she arrived at 15dpo (which is pretty late for me as she usually arrives between 12-14 dpo, with 13 dpo being the most common).

    Best of luck to you hun!!!!

    Thanks Ladies this is really helpful :)

    Im starting to get a bit nervous now as I have PCOS and DH hasnt had any SA yet, they are going to scedule it once we are there for a second appointment.

    Im also trying hard to lose some weight as I know that some doctors refuse fertility treatment if your BMI is too high. Mine is 33 and really dont want it to affect anything.

    Hello Ladies I am on my first round of clomid. I have to be on it due to pcos. If the doc sees good follicles he is going to give me a hcg trigger shot. Is this normal on the first cycle of clomid? he says i should ovulate within 12-36 hours of the shot so i shouldnt have to use opk does this sound right? any thoughts would be great. thanks

    Usually it takes about 36 hours to ovulate after a trigger shot, but I guess if you follicles look set to go, it's possible you can ovulate within that time. I guess the sperm takes it's time to get to the meeting point, so BDing throughout that time is a good idea (unless you are doing IUI)

    Thanks im getting so nervous now, keep going over questions in my head! Ive advised my manager I will need some follow up appointment as I know this will be needed.

    But I just hope he gives me something straight away so I get AF, 5months is a long time and I seriously need AF x
