Im confused. Im new to this & I dont know when I should begin calculating my cd days. AF came 10/16-10/18 19 w/spotting so I dont count the 19th. I began Clomid 10/20. Total Clomid dys 10/20-10/24.  When is my CD1? Should I count dy 19 w/spotting?

yes I have had success with clomid just one that made it all the way through I have had severa m/c's but the furthest I got was 24 weeks then preterm labor and my son passed after 26 days that was alomost 4 years ago....I just had another m/c in August at 8weeks 3 days as it was deterimined the baby had Turners Syndrome which resulted in a D and C...as far as the cd 1 that wil be the first day of full flow no spotting as far as the end of your cycle you count each day until its gone. and by the way no if I concieve again it will be baby #8 (read my profile) :-(

Keep me posted and good luck~!

up at 3am not feeling well at all this cold is really coming down on me...stuffy nose, sore throat and I woke up this morning in a cold sweat. On top of that I am having all bfn sighs (chills, cold hands, nose, feet) if you know my history those are all bfn signs for me but again we were not expecting too much this time since I think I o'd from the left and I have no tube there..... Sending prayers, baby dust and sticky vibes to everyone!!!

Have you had the big O yet? I took my second Clomid yesterday... What time of day did you take your Clomid? I've been taking mine around 4 in the afternoon.

One more question...How soon after your last Clomid do you start using OPK? And what time of day do you test? Thanks!! Prayers and Baby Blessings to All

depending on how long your cycles are...if you are a 28 day person about cd 14 I do the basal temp charts so I know when my temps start to rise its not long after that...normally in the morning because your urine is more concentrated at the point. Good luck!

I believe I have. Reason Im on Clomid is I dont ovulate naturally which explains why I never get AF symptoms (cramps) I always thought I was one of the fortunate ones lol. Past few days I been getting miner sharp cramps below my abdominal & inner waist-Im keeping my fingers crossed, thinking positive & hoping they are cramps & its me ovulating :D. I dont keep track of OPK Im leaving it up to faith the least stress I bring to myself is better for my health. I have really bad stress that effects my entire body w/hair loss-least is better for me especially w/all this running in my head. I took my pill every morning about 8:30am.

I've been on Metformin for a while to negate my symptoms of PCOS. I cramp horribly every month but I can go 50 odd days between periods. Stress is definetly the one thing we don't need. No negative jibes here! I've been taking my clomid late in the afternoon b/c I wasn't sure what it would do to me on an empty stomach. I thought with a full belly, I might be able to handle it better if I had any side effects. I'll be saying extra baby prayers for you! I pray all your dreams (and mine!) come true!! :D

Hi,

I am on 2nd month of clomid now, I am on cd 30. The first month didn't show it worked. This month the day 21 test showed nothing again but today I got my day 28 result back and it showed 63 which is really high!! I am so pleased, I think I must have O around day 21 so estimate I will prob be due day 35, I really hope we have conceived! Does anyone know if 63 is a good sign I could be pregnant?

Xx

went to re's office today and have 2 follies 1 on my left (no tube) is a 18 on the right I have a 19 (tube there) e2 is 81 and lh is 2.8 not sure what all those numbers mean even though I have been going through this for 10 years now also my lining is up from 4.7 after d and c to 11 so I will be triggering tomorrow and covering our bases every other day as much as possible if you ask me...so here we go!

PS I thought the follies were small but I was told they continue to grow 1-2 mm per day and at 20 they are considered mature so about time I actually ovulate they could be between 20 and 23...i will have my progesterone drawn on the 21st
Please pray for us that this works and that this one sticks for 40 weeks!

This was my first month on Clomid. I never got a positive OPK but my CD21 progesterone test level was 178.6!! I am on prometrium CD16 - 25 to initiate my period. When the dr called and gave me my results she said... "your progesterone level is through the roof! The dr thinks you may be preg, so take a HPT on CD28." I am on CD26 and could not wait so I took a HPT and got a BFN. I called the nurse to ask more questions since I saw by doing research that a 178.6 is extremely high, and she said she has never seen a progesterone level this high and the woman not be preg!?!?! I am so confused and anxious!! Since taking prometrium to initiate my periods, I usually have a 23 - 24 day cycle. Today is CD26 and I havent had any cramps or spotting. Has anyone been in a similar situation or have advice? Thanks!

Im not sure but I know I have never heard of a number that high...now my re gives me prometrium when my progesterone was low and that does boost it up and if I get the bfn then I stop the prometrium until af arrives so I am totally confused now I will be looking for another post so I can gain some knowledge too

WIERD. I think you should wait few more days til your cd 28 as dr suggested to take another prego test. Wait a week, still no AF have your blood work done to confirm.

i wont be doing the official test for another week or so 8 days to be exact but because I have access to the lab I had some blood drawn today and it came in at a 7 which anything over 5 is considered a + but I do keep in mind that I am only 1 week past taking the trigger shot which can still be in my system...I just have been having really bad cramps the last few days on and off and again  the same thing happened with my last bfp 1 week after trigger I checked it was a 3 and climbed from there so praying that is a good sign...since Im working in the lab today I just wanted to see where it was...I also had my progesterone drawn and due to it being the weekend I probably wont get those results til Monday.

progesterone came in at 14.5. Not sure what that means besides I did ovulate. I thought I read at least 10 on non-medicated and 20 on medicated but my re's office said anything above 10 on a medicated?? Anywho I am still having a stomach ache not even in the lower abdomen just feels like a kid that ate too much junk...it was so bothersome that it woke me up outta bed at 3am :-( Other then that temp is still on the rise but othere then that no bb's tenderness or anything. Im 5dpo today so not looking to feel much anyway I will be testing in a week if no af....wish me luck..

I believe I have read that the temp dips on implantation day, so maybe your are implanting today?  Keep positive, its all we can do.

I didn't get my progesterone tested this time, they said it was good last month (20) so should be good this month.  Of course now I am wishing I knew what it was.  Oh well, find out for sure Friday with beta test.

Good Luck!

I am new to this forum, I have an average of 39 day cycles. I had my first round of Clomid (50mg) last cycle and did not ovulate. My Progesterone was a 5.6 and I was disappointed :( I am on the 2nd round of Clomid (100mg), our BD days are 14, 16, 18, 20 and then blood test on the 22nd. I am hopeful it will work , I am starting an OPK today (day 10) for the first time because I am not convinced I ovulate anywhere near the 14th day, if at all. I want to test m even if it for 20 days to see exactly when I have an LH surge. Its a shame that this has turned into a fricken science project.

I am new to clomid. My husband and I just finished with 150mg. The lab screwed up and didn't run the proper ovulation tests. Any help is appreciated. We are thinking of doing 200mg on this cycle and do insemination. It is expensive but at least it is cheaper than IVF Any ideas?
