hi i have PCOS i've been on metformin and clomid for a while now maybe 4 or 5 months or even more my period did come on its own this month without provera thank God. My question is i want to maximize the chance of getting pregnant this month when and how i calculate ovulation of i do not ovulate every month? Should i buy a ovulation kit? and which ones are good? sorry if to many questions.
I'm not sure how the clomid will affect this but this is what I do.
Start charting your basal temperture. If your cycles are somewhat regular, at the end of your cycle, count back 13 to 14 days. That should be where you see the thermal shift. So if you have a 30 day cycle you should have ovulated at/around cd 16-17.
OPKs are also a good indicator, but that can get expensive after a while. Especially if you have longer cycles. I've had good luck with the cheapies and then you can test as often as you like. Good luck to you.
you can try the ovulation kit, but don't spend money on the ovulation monitor - i have it and it is not worth it. Being on clomid messes up your LH level and the ovulation monitor is no longer accurate. Also try this site: http://www.babyhopes.com/ovulation-calendar/
