Did Clomid move up your ovulation date?

Postby thirdnerd » Wed Mar 08, 2017 3:02 pm

I'm wondering if increasing my Clomid dose will move up my ovulation date at all? Has anyone experienced this with a higher level of Clomid? Last cycle I was on 50 mg CD 5-9 and didn't O until CD 26. This time I am on 100mg CD 3-7 and am hoping to O a lot sooner. I was told that any ovulation past CD 20 is typically of "poor quality" and can lead to early miscarriages because the egg is overly mature. That is why drs want to see ovulation prior to CD 20. I'm just wondering if I keep O'ing late on Clomid if maybe I should try Femera the next round. I'm 40 years old and time is of the essence, lol!

Clomid can move up ur O date.
I believe you ovulated late your last cycle bcs of the days you took the clomid,I have no experience with clomid but in my buddy group there is one lady who had a late O after taking 5-9 I think but the next cycle she took it 3-7 or something like that and she O early and she is now pregnant,maybe she will read this message and will give you more details.
Good luck!

Just wanted to add that I usually ovulate between day 20-25 and I had a healthy pregnancy and baby. Lots of people have longer cycles than the standard 28 days and when you have a longer cycle you have a later ovulation. I'm sure your doctor is correct but I just don't want you to worry extra if you become pregnant but it's after day 20. Good luck!

Thanks guys. It's frustrating to not have any idea when I will O and to have to test and BD weeks before it happens! Besides the wait, the worst part of Clomid is the total lack of CM... I am going to have to look into options for that, lol!

I took 50 mg clomid on day 5-9 and didn't o till cd 27 or something like that. I talked to my dr about switching my days to 3-7 with 100mg and she agreed it would help me o sooner. I did and it worked. I od like cd 16 and got pregnant that cycle! Good luck

Thirdnerd,

I'm taking Femara and have no CM since taking it. This is my 3rd cycle and I used preseed last cycle and it helped. I know some women use Mucinex or Robitussin to help with CM but I'm sensitive to those kinds of meds so I can't use them.

Also, before Femara I was Oing around CD 18. Last cycle I believe I O'd around CD 15 I take it on CD 3-7. I know it works a little different than Clomid, but I thought I'd throw my 2 cents in. LOL

Good luck!

So I am no on CD 21 and I thought maybe I ovulated last night. I had two days of positive OPKs and I had a temp rise this morning. But, I just took another OPK and it is still strongly positive. Does the LH surge generally stick around immediately after O, or does it seem like maybe I haven't O'ed yet?

I heard clomid can cause false + OPKs. I stop testing after I get my first super positive OPK so I'm not sure if I would've seen another positive on CD 14.

I'd say you O'd given your temp rise but I would BD until FF confirms O. I got my crosshairs the day after my temp rise. So you'll probably see them tomorrow. Sorry I'm not much help, this is my first time charting in ages!! FX'd for you!

I think you had a CD20 ovulation. You generally O 12-24 hours after first positive opk. Your timing looks good and I think if you have another higher temp tomorrow you will get your CH's. Good luck, your timing looks perfect.

Thanks guys. I am tired of BD'ing and our son has the flu and I am literally been cleaning up after him, so the last thing my husband and I want to have to do tonight is have sex. Haha! So I think I''ll assume that I O'ed yesterday/today and call it good for this cycle.

I hope your son feels better soon!

Like PP said, your timing looks good and I'm sure you'll see CH's tomorrow. FX'd for you!
