Just a quick question - didnt the doctor who prescribed this medication to you describe how it all works?

When I was on Clomid (only one month because it thinned my lining) my RE had me come in to monitor my progress through ultrasound.  We were advised to BD every second day from day 10 to day 16.  I normally monitor my O thru OPK's (you can buy them very cheaply online) and through charting my BBT's.  

This month I'm leaving it all to my RE - HE can figure out when I'm Oing on femara and time our IUI accordingly.  That's why he makes the big bucks!

While working in tandem with your fertility specialist, you can also log onto http://babymed.com/tools/fertility/clomid/Default.aspx to find out the approximate dates you should ovulate and do the baby dance with your partner.  Use OPK's is something your fertility doc should have recommended.  Good luck!
