I am on my 1st round of clomid and been having daily u/s to check follicles and eggs....
I went on monday and there was a follicle that measured 20mm, went back this morning and it has gone, I have been told to go for a blood test to check the hormone levels and to see if I released a egg.
I have been doing OPKs and have had a +, so my question is would I have got a + OKP if I didnt release an egg, or can I get a + OPK from the clomid and because I had a follicle???
TIA for any advice, we have been TTC this baby for nearly 3.5 years with 2 M/C and we need a break!!
Very proud mummy to 2 earthly and 5 heavenly babies.
Yeah it sounds like you ovulated to me! They will be able to tell by getting your progesterone levels. The good thing about doing it this way is if you did O but your levels are low they can get you on some supplements. Low progesterone can cause miscarriage so we really don't want that!
However it is possible to get a +OPK and not ovulate. Sometimes the body tries to O and thus you get fertile CM and an LH surge but for some reason can't. Here's a chart of someone who had that happen to them. If she had ovulated her temps would have went up and she would have gotten cross-hairs (a vertical line through the day of O and a horizontal cover line).
Thanks Bokkechick for my wonderful siggy! TTC Blog
