Still waiting for O on CD14. Question
8
Mon, 03-12-2012 - 11:01am

I am on my second month of clomid. Last month was inconclusive if I O'd. I'm using the OPK, and still no positive results. My cycles have been 28-35 days, but last two cycles have been 28 days (First time ever). When should I expect O. I am noticing some EWCM. Not too much, I will be taking the Mucinex, but wanted to wait for a positive result. Should I take it anyway, and hope I O in the next day or two. I am testing twice a day (I bought a store brand OPK, cheap one). Any input would be great.

Thanks!

Bonnie

Bonnie, if you are seeing EWCM you may be getting close to O. You should take the Mucinex before O. I usually start taking it 5-7 days before I O and take it until I O.

The lines appear to be the same, I actually saw it lighter today than I did yesterday, but they are still a few shades lighter. I started taking the mucinex today, I hope I am not too late. I have my CD21 blood draw on Monday, so we'll see. This whole process can be obsessive!

Thanks Vicki!

Bonnie- taking clomid can delay your ovulation. You should expect to O 5-10 after your last pill. I take mine cd3-7 and when I O while taking it, it is normally cd17. My RE said if I didn't get a pos OPK by CD21 then I wouldn't. O from the clomid, it would be on my own. Do not do the CD21 blood test on Monday if you get a pos Opk after CD14. You want this test to be done 8 days after your first pos Okp or on 7 days past ovulation. OBs just order it cd21 going on the average that every women O's on CD14. If you O later then the test should be done later. If you do not get a pos opk, then go ahead and do it Monday, because any raise in the progesterone will tell you that you Oed and can be useful. I hope this helps. Mel

Thank you ladies!! I started having mild cramps, which I always associate with ovulation. My OPK line was a bit darker, but still a few shades lighter, so I am hoping O is right around the corner.
Thanks for the input!

Hey Dani!!

I am so sorry about you MC. This has been such a roller coaster! I'm glad I "see" someone I know, even though the ladies here have been amazing. I haven't posted in our Aug02 board of this, it's been such a long journey for us, that I am out of posts. I will also be 42 in October, so we are definitely on the same boat. I do not mind posting on the other board :-)
Wishing you a speedy recover and hoping for wonderful sticky news soon :-)
