I know of several people who have conceived just on clomid.

How long are you cycle days normally?  Depending on that - I would start testing with OPK's around CD 10.  If you have a longer cycle, like 31 days, then start testing on CD 13 or 14.

150 mg can be rough. I felt like a crazy beast on that dosage. Isn't even make it through that dosage to be honest. I'll tell you what my dr told me when I was on that dosage. Be sure to try days 10-20 every other day. My new doc says that you can try every day & not necessarily eod.  My new dr has also taught me how to tell when I'm close to ovulating. I always had little punchy cramps round days 12-15 & thought it was cysts. He's not seen any since starting with him october & said that it was indicative of ovulation. He told me to try every day on the days that I felt those pinches. Just my personal experience. We're back on clomid 50 & IUI (11 do iui now) hope it all works out for you!

Yes, I think that would work.  I usually ovulate later on clomid than without it.  So, I typically ovulate on CD 17 - but with clomid I've been ovulating on CD 20 or 21.  If the clomid makes you ovulate - on 150 mil you are more than likely going to know it is going on!  I mean - back aches, cramps...you should have it all.  If this is your first month your EWCM should still be good (after a few months it can dry it out).  I would start testing on CD 10, just to be safe.  You might have to buy 2 boxes this cycle.  I usually do, cause I don't want to miss it.  Once my cycle is over...I feel silly that I bought them because I knew when it was happening!

Good luck!

I just did a round of clomid.  it was only 50 but still.  the Dr told me that we should be trying to concieve at a mimium of every other day from CD12-21  

Then I had to do a BT on CD24-26.   that BT showed my progestrone levels which were at 42... I went on thursday and got a possitive pregancy BT!  And since it was a fertility clinic they did another BT this morning to make sure everything was progressing well.   So I just wanted to let you know that it is possible.  

Good luck!
