Consistent or varying ovulation day on Clomid??

Postby MrsGrn » Wed Oct 12, 2016 10:50 am

Background info: Mom to one 6yo DS with very irregular cycles and history of 2 mc prior to my DS. TTC for second baby since May 2016. Chemical pregnancy in July 2016. Started 1st round Clomid Sept 2016. Second round of 50mg Clomid October 2016.

Hello all,
1st round of Clomid 50mg cd 5-9 with a cd 21 serum progesterone was 35. I believe I ovulated cd 14 (positive opk). I temp also, but had a cold with a fever around ovulation, so I believe my temps were mostly inaccurate for ovulation this cycle. Prior to ovulation I had what seemed to be ovulatory pains and after ovulation I had a lot of bloating.

I started testing at 10dpo and had a few BFN. My Af arrived on what would have been cd 28, putting my cycle length on Clomid at 27 days. Normally my cycles lengths range from 40-90+ days. I did opk testing prior to clomid and ovulation time was usually in the range of cd 21 to cd 35 (though not sure of this info since my LH surge would sometimes go on for 2-5 days.

Currently on second round of 50 mg Clomid cd 5-9. I started opk testing early this cycle, on cd 7 (based on the length of my previous cycle). Today is cd 17 and I have still yet to have a positive opk. I have been temping, but this is only my 3rd month on temping, so not really sure how to interpret results. I have had an increase in CM for a few days now. I have not had in ovulation pains this month.

I am wondering if other's ovulation day varied widely while on Clomid? Or was it more consistent? Since I ovulated on cd 14 last cycle, I assumed it would be somewhere around there again, but wondering how long I should continue to test?

Regardless of opk results, we have been BD'ing daily since cd 12 and plan to continue +2days after positive opk. However, my husband has to leave OOT for work on cd 21, so hoping I don't ovulate before then!

Hi! I took clomid 3 months and this is how my O dates varied.... Month 1. 50mg day 3-7 and I O'd Cd 14. Month 2. 50mg days 2-6 and I O'd cd13. Month 3. 50mg days 2-6 and I O'd cd 16.

So it really varies every month. I would definitely keep using opk's. If you can start temping, that's a great tool too. Good luck!

I'm on my 4th round of clomid but my first three. Round 1, CD 16 : Round 2, CD 15 : Round 3, CD 16. So mine stayed pretty consistent but that doesn't mean much because we are all different! I agree with Leilani, I would suggest temping! Then you know when you ovulated and keep using the OPKs!

Thank you for the feedback ladies! I do temp, but this is only my 3rd cycle temping. I did get a temp rise following ovulation last month. I had a positive opk the afternoon of 10/13, a positive 10/14 morning, and still no temp rise...

I'll attach my chart and tell me what you think.

Thanks again!

I feel like you'll ovulate either today or tomorrow! Keep temping!

I just wanted to give an update....

I ended up finally getting my flashing smiley "peak" LH day on cd 18 and a temp shift on cd21. I estimate my O day was cd 20, I also had SHOW that day. Today is cd30 and 10dpo and I just got a BFP!

I will add... I did a few experiments with different HPT brands because I am a POAS addict and I love science ;)
My line was darkest on the Amazon $0.50 apiece Easy@Home Brand (20 pack), next darkest was Walmart's $0.88 first signal brand (single test), the LEAST darkest was the (supposed most sensitive and the MOST expensive) $4.33 apiece (3pk) first response early result. So there's my 2 cents on HPT. Hope it helps you ladies save some money and get an early BFP!!!!
