hi ladies,
i had my progesterone test done april 1st (cd 21) and the doc called me yesterday saying i didn't ovulate. I am taking 100mg clomid on days 3-7. I know in my gut that i ovulated on march 30/31, so it was a bit heart breaking to know the test failed me on april 1st. i'm thinking that the doc may have had me test my progesterone too early. anyone else on the same boat or have prior experience like this?

Well ladies, it happened...my cyst twisted my ovary, causing the worst pain ever. Yesterday I had surgery to remove the cyst and my right ovary and fallopian tube. The cyst ended up being 20cm, by 12 cm. Baby is fine and seems to be doing well!

Cup, I'm sorry you had to experience that pain, but I'm glad everything is fine now!! I can't believe you're 15 weeks already!!

Harv, you totally could have ovulated and they tested too early. I have a friend who just got her bfp just over a week ago, They tested her progesterone on cd 21, and it came back negative for ovulation, but she was absolutely right that she ovulated a couple days before!! That's why they wait until cd21 assuming ovulation around cd14. But as we all know, these drugs often delay ovulation, so they get it wrong! Hopefully you did ovulate, and you'll get your bfp soon!!

SO MANY NEW FACES! Welcome to all of you!
Harv, Andrea (TUA) is right. it could easily be too early if you o'ed later

Cup, SO glad you have this pregnancy and I pray everything continues to go well for you and the baby. cyst GONE.

Emilia, no offense taken. It's the outsiders that haven't been through this that frustrate me. It definitely could be IB you're seeing. When do you plan on testing?

Tinley, I hope the vitex works for you this cycle! I told someone on another board that if I could get pregnant just by a good lookin' chart, I'd be there!

Betsy, I hope this specialist works wonders for you. (actually, I hope you dont' NEED the specialist because you'll get your bfp ASAP!)

Is there anyone in the states that can tell me if their insurance paid for the RE? I have blue cross blue shield and I just wonder!

Emilia- the helicopter came to take her to the hospital, I'm sure my daughter will have some news today when she comes home. No offense taken, I only get annoyed when people who aren't trying and have never had to try say it. The girl that said it to me recently was pregnant and wasn't trying. As far as the spotting you saw, I had that last month. I spotted for 3 days then it went away and then AF was 5 days late after that, I was sure I was going to get a BFP but I didn't, AF came the day after I got my BFN (6 days late, how rude or AF)

Betsyloo- If the Clomid doesn't work for me, I will be sent to a specialist. Maybe you will be able to share with me what happens after you go so I know what to expect. Good luck with everything.

Tinley- Good luck with your next cycle, I wonder if I have to go up to 100mg if she will give me progesterone as well, but who knows. I hate waiting!!

Emilia - It took four days after I stopped progesterone support to show up. Making my luteal phase 16 days long! It's usually 11 days. But because the trigger caused me to O so early in my cycle AF came right on schedule as if I hadn't done a clomid cycle.

And I totally understand all the trying! It's exhausting but you can't NOT try. Even without doing medication this cycle I'll still be tracking and timing intercourse, I can't let a month go to waste!

I'd love nothing more than to get a BFP this month without having to medicate. Hopefully this was enough to kick things in the right direction.

Emilia ~ I am trying to stay hopeful today too :) Technically I should get AF today, CD28, 15DPO, but Clomid has extended my cycles ranging from 30-32 days. So I expect she will arrive this weekend sometime. She tricked me this morning thinking she was here, and now nothing! But I am staying hopeful, maybe this is my BFP and yours :) Yep I ovulate normally myself, never missed a period except when I was pregnant years ago when I was a teenager. 28 day cycles like clockwork! But after a year of trying we started to worry, that's when we started some of the testing, and then the Clomid. Side note I love you typed BetsyBoo cause that's what my Mom called me when I was young :) Dad calls me BetsyLoo LOL!

Thanks Lisa, I hope so too :) I have BCBS of TX....sorry, don't know all the lingo, what's RE? My insurance will pay for certain stuff depending on how the Dr codes it. It covered some tests my OB/GYN did, but things specifically labeled 'infertility' it won't cover at all like the Clomid RX, Hubs' SA....but it covers my office visits, and an ultrasound they did to check for cysts and fibroids. But I know once I go to the fertility specialists, it won't cover anything :(

Ayt ~ I will definitely share what happens if I go. I am trying to do what my Hubs says, and remain positive until AF arrives, so I'm still saying it's possible she won't show up!! IF she does, I will def be going to the FS. Good luck to you as well, and thanks!

Ladies, the bleeding has stopped. It only showed when I wiped. I'm sure it's AF. But now my qst is, when do I start my next round of clomid? Do I wait for full flow? What if full flow doesn't come? What if this month I spot now for a few days and that's my AF? I'm so confused, or should I wait a few days for the full flow to appear?

Sorry betsyloo stupid spellcheck. Goodluck. Hoping for a bfp for u.

Lisa, I think it could be AF. So don't think I'll test. Waiting for full flow so i can just get on with it and start clomid again.

Ayt0412- oh I misunderstood I thought she was abducted by someone with a helicopter lol duhhh thought that was a little odd. Hope this girl is ok. PLS keep us posted. Wow AF was 6 days late. I hope it just comes already for me hate the waiting game I just wana get on with it.

Ladies, is there anything I can take to make sure clomid doesn't affect my lining? I've heard it can make it tnin. Does anyone know what can be taken so that k can make it thicker?

Emillia wait for full AF to show then count that as day 1 if full flow doesn't show count as day one the day your spotting was a little heavier.Clomid does affect the lining in some cases,only an ultrasound can show that,if ur doc think ur lining is not great he will prescribe progesteron,my doc told me that the lining after O to be considered great has to be around 18mm!cd 28 ultrasound for me showed 15mm lining,my doc was worried about my lining 2cycles ago,it was 12mm and he gave me progesteron!
