5 failed clomid cycles,on to femara, 11 days of flash smiley

Postby ann53015 » Mon Aug 21, 2017 7:09 am

So I did 5 cycles of clomid 50mg CD5-9. I did ovulate on that but did not get a BFP. So my RE switched me to Femara. I bought the Advanced Clear Blue Digital. I took the Femara CD 5-9. Started OPK testing on CD10, which was solid circle. CD11- solid circle, then CD12-CD21(which is today) I have gotten flashing smileys but no peak yet. Is this normal with Femara? What days do you all ovulate on Femara? I am going crazy here....

I have never used the digital opks so I can't say,try using a regular one and see what that shows.
Maybe the femara has an affect on them?!
Sorry I can't be more of help.

The first time I used those they did NOT work for me. The smiley will continue to flash. Did you go to the doctor for blood work?

My doctor basically said that she only wants to see the LH rise and that the basic OPKs are better to use. I was on Clomid this cycle for my IUI and used the cheapies every morning. They worked for me.

Dana I was wondering that also.

Sunshine I did have blood work that showed I did ovulate. My RE also suggested trying the regular ones next month if I am not pregnant. You would think that the more expensive and more information would be better but clearly it's not. So frustrating. Anyways, when can you test for pg?

Really hoping I won't have to worry about OPK's anymore because I am pregnant....Trying to be positive.

Oh and also I have no idea how many DPO I am because I don't know when I ovulated. That in itself is very frustrating. No idea when to test for pg and no idea when AF will show. So basically I am kinda in the dark here.
