Hello. I am a 31 year old trying to conceive for the first time.
Here is a little background: My husband and I have been trying to conceive since the end of June. I got off birth control after being on it for 15 years the end of May. By the time October came around, I still hadn't had a period. I called my OB and he did an transvaginal ultrasound and gave me a prescription for Clomid 50mg.
I started taking on October 28th as directed by him. After completing the medication the beginning of this month, his office wanted me to come back in for a follicle study. I had another transvaginal ultrasound and he determined that I should be releasing an egg shortly in the following days. He instructed my husband and I to have times intercourse every other day for 10 days starting on November 7th. He stated that if I don't get pregnant, I will have a period in a couple of weeks.
We did as instructed up until today, which should have been our 5th day trying, because I starting bleeding this morning.
I'm completely new to this. I started bleeding and I don't know if it's implantation bleeding or if it's a period. My doctor said my period would start in a couple of weeks if I didn't get pregnant, so I don't know if this is just a normal occurrence for someone who is taking Clomid or not.
Symptoms: Slight cramping, heavy bleeding, blood is brown-tinged. I had no symptoms before this morning when I started bleeding.
I've read about implantation bleeding, but I don't think this is it. I talked to my mom and she said she had the same thing happen to her when she was pregnant with me.
So, I guess my main question is: Is it normal to start your period immediately after ovulation after taking Clomid?
