It's normal to O 5-10 days after taking your last pill. I've been right in the middle with about 7-8 days after. Glad you tolerated the Clomid well. :)

That's great the Clomid's been okay for you. I have no idea what's going on w/me this cycle..cd25 and still no positive opk...I'm hoping it will be positive later today, but who knows anymore! So, who knows, maybe i'll ovulate this weekend. I just want to ovulate and get on with it already.

Thank you for the help Lex, I will take all the help I can get with this new medicated cycle thing :). Definitely new for me! I was thinking it would be 5 days after taking the last pill so good to know it could be up to 10 days. So that would put me at early-mid next week if it takes 10 days. Did your Dr. give you any guideline on when to start the BD fest? Mine just told me to start taking OPK at CD 12 and go from there based on when I get a pos opk. But I don't want to wait too long either :)

Sydney, I completely know that feeling of having no idea what is going on with your cycle :). That has always been my problem, and having crazy cycles all over the place. Do the OPKs normally work good for you? I struggled with the 2 line opk tests b/c I could never tell what was positive for me. So this time I ordered the CBE smiley face one and hopefully I can get a positive on that one :). Sorry for your late O this cycle, but I am happy to have a potential cycle buddy!

Thanks. The 2 line opk's were working fine for me until the last 2 cycles (I even backed up the 2 line ones with the cbe smiley just for fun). But last cycle I never got a positive on the 2 line opk, but I did get a smiley face one morning. This cycle neither are positive..Hmm.

Did you know if you were ovulating even though you didn't get positives on the opk's? I

Yeah my doc said do not use any OPKs or monitors until 3 days after last pill. He said try to BD every other day until positive OPK then BD every day. First cycle I tried BDing every other day because my OPKs were messing with me... then wound up missing my fertile day because DB and I were away on a trip with his dad! Second and third cycle I actually listened to my doctor (and bought the monitor to take the guess work out of OPKs) and BD'ed how he said lol. But no BFPs cause my body is crap lol.

Hey Sydney, yes I was temping too so I know I O'd each month that I have been using the OPKs. I had a hard time telling if the test lines were darker, or only half the line was darker or something. I never got a solid test line that was darker than the control, but I did have lines that were progressively getting darker over the days I though I was O'ing and then it was confirmed by temps. So that's why I decided to try the digital/smiley face one this time to see if that works for me :)

So, any signs of O yet? I STILL don't know what's going on on my front...CD27 here and still no pos opk, although my opk's have been pretty dark this week, so who knows, maybe it's still to come or maybe my body's broken. Even if O is still to come I think DH is sick of feeling like we need to BD on any certain days. I've tried to just bd eod b/c I know he doesn't like feeling like we "have" to do it, but apparently eod is too much for him...he says it's not relaxing, haha. I know he's tired. Hell, i'm tired. Yeah, we kinda got in an argument last night about ttc sex, so not fun conversation. I think I'm hoping I already did ovulate b/c if I do get a pos in the next few days I'm going to have a lot of convincing to do. AHHHHHHHHHHHH....
