Your temps are looking great! FX for you. If they stay up to dpo 14 I would test again! But you're not out until AF comes. How many mg of clomid are you on this cycle?

I'm on 100 mg of clomid.
You're right. I just gotta get a little bit of patience.

Thanks for analyzing my chart!

How did you feel on 100mg? My doc wants me to go up on dosage. I haven't committed to that yet. I did two rounds at 50mg and I did get bad headaches and night sweats. Kind of scared to go up.

Funny my doctor put me on 100mg right off the bat! I did get really bad depression and anxiety, along with hot flashes at night!
Last month, I took my pills right before bed, read on a forum somewhere that it helps when your symptoms are crazy! I cried so much back in March everyone thought I was pregnant... which made me even more sad lol what a disaster!

Hi!

I've had a look at your chart. And I filled your data in on my spreadsheet I designed to help me understand my patterns with better accuracy than an app when I was trying.

FF says you ovulated on CD15, but if you calculate this manually, you actually ovulated on CD16. That's why you've got EWCM - it's the day before ovulation. (I could never understand my ovulation day from apps until I calculated it manually).

Since you BD'ed the right days before O, FX that it works for you this month. And good on ya for BD after ovulation too, it helps with implantation.

Also it will help if you track your CM EVERYDAY after your period.

With my manual chart I designed and used when I was charting, I also identified your fertile period for next month (if this month doesn't work) - CDs 14 to 18. The start is based on your CM, if you've had creamy mucus earlier, your fertile period would start earlier.

May I ask you a few things from your chart?

Why is your temp so low on CD13? Did you take your temp at a different time?

Hi! :)

My temps drop insanely low every month around that time. The same happened last month. It is weird, on another forum this girl basically told me I was a liar. I mean my alarm is on every morning at 6.30am even on weekends, I really wouldn't lie. lol

That is so cool that you created a chart!! Thanks for your input on my fertile days next month. You really are awesome. All of my tests are negative, and my temps are slowly dropping.

What do you think? Should I prep for AF?

It's too soon to tell. Although I can't understand why this month wouldn't work since your timing was right.

I guess it just takes time.

I took the supplement COQ10 the month I had success. What are you taking besides clomid?

FX

Nothing actually, this whole TTC thing is very new to me. My doctor first put me on clomid because I wasn't ovulating at all. Now that it seems to have been fixed, on my appointment next week I could bring it up to him. What do you suggest I talk to him about? I really appreciate all your help!
