I'm on my first round of Clomid 5-9. I'm hoping to ovulate in the next few days if the Clomid actually works. My fertile days are supposed to be February 6-11. Today I noticed a lot more cm than usual so I hope ovulation is near. Although I'm not officially in the tww I'll wait with you since I'm only a few days behind! Good luck :)

Thanks! I hope you get your positive ovulation test soon!!! How long have you been trying? Any diagnosis or just unexplained infertility?

We've been trying since September of 2013 and we were ntnp for a year before that with nothing. No official diagnosis I just have very long cycles (60+ days). I don't have any signs of pcos and my doctor has pretty much ruled it out but I'm still not certain. I also have a bicornuate uterus and a blood clotting disorder which could be preventing me from conceiving as well. I'm not really sure. How about you?

Danaa good luck with Clomid! I didn't have any side effects at all and I still feel pretty good a week after my last pill.

I have one good tube and one "minimally open" tube. I likely have endometriosis. They aren't sure if there is toxic fluids leaking from the tube preventing me from conceiving but the only way to rule that out is to remove it which my doc doesn't want to do yet since I can still technically get pregnant from that side. We've been trying since August 2013 with a few months break in the middle from my husbands deployment

Oh wow. That sounds scary. Well I'm rooting for clomid to work for you! Has it been confirmed youve ovulated with ultrasound/bloodwork or have you been using opks and temping to determine? I can't tell if my cramping and cm means I will ovulate or if it's just follicles gearing up to release but they won't. The only time I've conceived I had very bad cramps all over. I felt them in my lower back all the way around my stomach and was so bad I laid in bed for a few hours. I'm not sure if it was ovulation or implantation because I miscarried before I found out how far along I was and my periods are so irregular. Im really hoping that the cramping im having will be ovulation but you never know.

No I had an ultrasound cd 11 to check follicles and blood work but since we opted no iui this month since they were on my bad side (and we are paying out of pocket) they told me if I get my period to start clomid again and we will try again next month :) I've been using opks. I normally get a stabbing knife pain from ovulation on the day but with clomid this month I've had on and off cramping (mostly on) since cd 10! No changes since the positive opk.

I've had on and off cramping as well. I'm wondering if it's just a side effect of clomid or if it means ovulation is coming soon. Are you taking prenatal vitamins or baby aspirin or anything?

I think both. I've never had cramping on and off prior to ovulation before the clomid, only during. So it has to be connected id think! And I'm taking prenatal vitamins and vitamin d what about you?

I hope it's clomid doing its job! I've never had it either. I've had twinges on my left side but nothing more. I've been taking baby aspirin and I'm gonna start prenatals today. I wasn't even thinking about prenatals because I was taking provera, metformin, clomid and baby aspirin and it was so many pills. I took evening primrose oil for maybe two weeks but It got so tricky to keep up with what I took when that I gave that up.

That's good you know when you're about to ovulate. I have ewcm right now and I'm not sure if that means I'll ovulate in the next few days or wbat. I'm just hoping I actually ovulate within a reasonable amount of time. My cycles are anywhere from 60-100 days and it makes it impossible to track ovulation.
