Anybody get extended cycles while on Clomid?

Postby Rach61414 » Wed Apr 08, 2015 12:52 pm

This is the end of my 2nd cycle taking Clomid. The first month I ovulated on cycle day 18 then started my period on cycle day 32. I also had a tremendous amount of pressure all month on the first cycle, especially around ovulation time.
This month (2nd cycle) I have felt little to no pressure, I got positive opk's on cycle days 18 & 19 and its now cycle day 33 with no sign of af. Any one else have similar experiences?

Hi Rach61414,I did!
This was my first cycle on 50mg and I eas freaking out that my AF hadn't started and I thought clomid stopped my AF. I was 2 days late but have read others being later. I'm usually a 26day cycle so I was really worried when it had not come and HPT was negative.
I've read clomid extends Lp hence extending cycle. If you're not preg it will come. Hang in there.

Thanks hun! I haven't tested this cycle yet because I'm tired of the let downs. If I don't start by this weekend I'll test!

What are your cycles normally like? More than 28 days? Maybe you're pregnant??

On a normal cycle its usually right around cycle day 30 but I tend to have spotting a few days prior to af... Not this month, at least not yet! I just hate seeing bfn after bfn so that's why I'm hesitant! Hubby says I have to test Saturday if I don't start before then, Ill keep you posted!

I know what u mean about the bfn I feel exactly same way. I would wait too, bc clomid is notouriius for extending cycles but fingers crossed this is your month, sending baby dust your way. Keep me posted :)

I had the same thing! I ovulated CD18 and the Clomid made my af 2 days late. I'm currently on round 2 of Clomid right now, so I'm hoping this is the cycle for me! Good luck to you all!

I think clomid can have that effect, esp for those of us taking it who O on their own anyways. I have always O'd btwn cd13-cd15 in the past and my first cycle on 50mg clomid i O'd on cd18 & on my last cycle (second on 50mg) i didn't O until cd20! It was driving me batty!

First round of clomid (100mg). I'm 16dpo today and just started spotting tonight. My usual LP is 13-14 days. I've tested twice and got bfns. Guessing that AF will visit me tomorrow which will make me 3-4 days late. What was everyone's outcomes? Any bfps on this thread?
