Question on lines of OPK/CM and Clomid
Thu, 04-10-2003 - 1:24pm
I have had 2 m/c over the a 6 mo time. The last one was in Jan. I went back on the pill to get things regulated. This month I am off of the pill and we began trying. I am not taking my BBT this time. We are using the OPK's. I started CD 10, usually have 28 days cycles. No surge line - just reference. Same thing on CD 11, 12, 13, and VERY faint on CD 14. CD 15 had a line - much darker and faster, but not quite as dark as ref line. CD 16 line was lighter and today CD 17 even lighter.

Does the line lighten after O has occurred?

Also had think mucus on CD 15 and 16 - not sure about that - almost a cloudy type.

I had twinge pains all day yesterday in my lower ab region.

Can anyone help? I thought that I was getting to be good at all of my signs, and now they have changed!!

Thank you

I would say sometime around cycle day 15 to a 36 hour time frame. Remember OPK just tell you about your surge and that O is coming or is here for a 12-36 hour time frame. I have used the sticks after the + and still had light +'s. Clomid can also decrease your CM (side effect) but does not change O, so I would say you O'd and GL I hope you caught that egg.
