Just make sure you temp at the same time each morning within the hour, and don't get out of bed before you temp. Digital thermometer works well.
Harv- I hope you don't even have to temp! Come on BFP!

Thanks for the new thread Tinley! Keeping fingers crossed for BFPs this cycle

For those ladies who were asking on the last thread about clomid days 2-6 vs 3-7. My understanding is that as long as it makes you ovulate then that's enough - it's worked and done it's job. so doesn't matter which schedule your doc tells you to follow as long as it's inducing ovulation
Husband and I both 35
TTC #1 for 4 years
7 cycles of Clomid 100mg on days 2-6 cycle - BFN
Losing weight to have IVF - over 2.5 stone lost so far
Back on clomid for final 3 cycle attempts

I have never used clomid and I can't say wich day is best but the first cycle with injectables i started on cd7-12,but my doc told me if that doesn't work next time we start on cd4,I think it doesn't really matter when you start is bcs either way the point is to make you ovulate!I had my ultrasound today:)my follies are looking good,tomorrow im starting GonalF so yeah:)

my doc asked me, "did we do cd3-7 or 5-9?" I said 5-9 (which is what we decided...but I go ahead and do 4-8..don't tell!). I asked him, "why not 2-6 or 4-8?" He said, "no reason...they just weren't included in the research studies"
I read something about 3-7 had more eggs and 5-9 had fewer, but larger eggs. I decided I liked both of those, so 4-8 was my final decision. haha.

I'm so scared to test again.

Good Afternoon ladies, hope everyone is well today. Has anyone taking Clomid experienced some intense cramping a little sooner than normal? I've been having some pretty intense cramps today and I'm not sure if it's regular AF cramps or if it's associated with Clomid/Ovulation.

I can understand Lisa!ayt depends where your cycle you are!When I'm about to O my ovaries hurt but I don't get AF like cramps!!I won't test this cycle before AF,only if my period is late,my temp always drops on 11-12dpo and I know im getting period,so no testing needed:)

danaa, when you say that it makes me wonder if there is a progesterone problem there. My temp was dropping around 10 or 11dpo every time...so that made us think there might be a luteal phase defect and my corpus luteum stops producing progesterone too soon which results in a bad place for the egg to be parked. I know you have been doing tests out the wazoo...but have you considered that?


AYT, I don't have any side effects from the clomid (or the progesterone). I'm one of those rare breeds, I guess.
