    Default Question about timing with Clomid...

    I was told last time I took clomid to BD days 10-20 every other day and I did and then I ovulated on day 25... we didn't go past day 20 cuz we were so tired LOL. So I was thinking of just BD after I get an LH surge from my OPK test? Is that a good plan? I don't want to ov late and miss it again but I don't want to risk missing the surge either from the LH test.... what to do?

    I tried that..we were worn out and totally not into it the closer I got to O. Lol. Thankfully when I was on Clomid I had terrible O pains so I knew for sure what day I O'd. I stopped doing OPKs and just went by that. The month I got pregnant, I was being monitored and the doc told me to expect to O on CD15-16. I felt the pains again and O'd on the CD16 and we DTD the day of O, the day before, and I think two days before that and I got pregnant. I think just get it as close to O as possible and you'll be okay. We had finally given up that month on the trying from day 10-20 or so...that was just way too exhausting and most of it was pointless in terms of TTC anyway. Good luck sweetie! Hope this is your cycle!

    oh i'm so glad to hear you say that! I'll just use the opk's and go by that... I just feel like we are spinning our wheels and I don't want to miss it again but I don't want to miss this cycle either. I wish I could freeze his sperm and just inject it everyday like we do with pre-seed or something like that. it would be much easier LOL

    When I took Femara, I used opks and temps the same way I tracked other cycles. You shouldn't miss LH surge if you test twice a day. Better to make sure you have the energy to BD closer to o than wear yourselves out bd'ing every other day for a couple of weeks! Good luck!

    Is this your first cycle on Clomid?
    I took it for 3 cycles, and the O pains are unmistakable! I also O'd around cd 25-28. They told me to BD CD 10-20 also, but I went with my gut, and BD later. I was also temping, charting, checking my CP and CM, and checking my saliva ferning. Month 1 got me a chemical pregnancy, month 2 - nada...and month 3 ....well you can see how that turned out by looking in my siggy :P

    Clomid is a gnarly little drug that takes a crazy toll on your mind and body, but I have forgotten about all of the bad, because in the end, I hit the freakin lottery!

    Best of luck!

    wow that's awesome! I would love to have twins!!!! What mg were you on do you remember? I had 50mg the 1st cycle and I didn't feel any O pain. I wonder if I didn't O with it the 1st time. Last cycle I didn't take it and I O'd on my own and this cycle I'm taking 50mg again so it's my 2nd cycle on it. I've been feeling twinges and got lots of EWCM tonight so I think it might be coming

    Oh yeah I forgot about the painful O. Not sure how because it's pretty memorable now. Lol. Yeah when I was on Clomid I didn't even bother with OPKs because the O pains were so obvious. It wasn't too painful to DTD but there was no doubt when something was going on. So if I started to feel something we usually tried to fit it in another time or two just to be sure. I hope it works for you quickly.

    I was only on 50mg, and I swore up and down it wouldnt do anything because thats the lowest dose they have. I was bummed they wouldnt give me a higher dose because of my age (23 at the time) and family history of multiples. They didnt want such a young thing getting twins *insert eye roll* , and didnt want to over stimulate my ovaries. I was being monitored via transvag u/s to check my follicles, too. They had me go on cd 14 or 15 to check them, and there was nothing. I balled my eyes out thinking nothing would ever work for me. The u/s tech knew me for a few years, and knew I tend to O late, and begged the dr to let me come back cd 25...and there were 3 big, ripe follies, and 2 of em turned into my babies a few weeks later! I bought the tech flowers as a thank you for giving me my babies.

    The pains were CRAZY. I remember telling my friends it felt like a pineapple covered with razors was stuck in my uterus. BD *was* painful for me, but I knew it had to be perfect time.

    Oh, I also used that cup. I forget what its called...its used for periods, but can also be used to sperm collection. I brought out the big guns for cycle 3, and like I said, hit the lottery!
