OPK after Clomid

This might be a silly question, especially since I have read a lot about Clomid, but I am on day 3 of my first cycle (100 mg on CD 5-9).  When should DH and I start BD?  And do I need to wait to take an OPK?  I usually start my OPK on CD 10, but I've read that Clomid can cause a false positive if taken too early... any advice?

As long as you wait a few days after taking the last pill, your OPKs should be fine. I think they suggest waiting 2-3 days or so, which would take you to CD11 or 12. Most women ovulate within 10 days of taking their last pill; and for those who ovulate on their own, it seems like clomid often delays ovulation by a day or two. Best of luck this month!
