OK, Clomid users, I am hoping to get some advice from you!! I start 50mg tomorrow (CD3-7). I have read that the OPK's can be misleading while taking this. So, my question is, do I use the OPK's while using the climid, or wait until after I am done? Also, is it better to take the meeds in the morning or at night? I know it affects everyone differently, but wanted to see how others have experienced it in the past.

Thanks so much ladies!!! I am anxious/nervous to get this show on the road!

And can I just say, this is not going to help with my POAS problem. While I have told myself previously I would wait longer to test, I pretty much have to start testing 10DPO so that I can make sure to start my aspirin as the OB "prescribed". I was going to try and be less obsessed this time around. guess not!

I didn't take Clomid, but I took Femara. I would recommend taking any drug at night, so that you can sleep through some of the side effects. I haven't heard that Clomid effects OPK's. If you are only taking it CD 3-7 and don't start OPK's til CD 10 or whatever, I'm betting it would be fine, but I don't know for sure.

Why are you taking the aspirin? My OB just told me to start taking it as well and I'm wondering why.

Wishing you a BFP soon!

Ive had major issues with OPK's while taking clomid. I was getting a + and a - in the same day for FIVE days.

Best of luck!

Tiffany&co - that's what I've heard, to take at night. So I'm going to try it! And my OB wants me on aspirin because with the d&c from my last loss she said I had a lot of blood clots which resulted in alot of tests that all came back negative. She thought it has to do with blood clots because I've lost 2 after HB is established. So this is the next atep. Clomid, progesterone and aspirin. Hope it works! Thanks for the advice and kind words

I think I remember you saying that before. I will definitely watch carefully. I thought about temping but my sleep schedule is NEVER the same and I've heard that makes the temps less accurate. Plus I share the bed with hubby and fur babies :/ I figure that might affect my temps negatively. I don't know I just hope it works because I am going to make sure to DTD at the right times and often so we don't miss it

Thanks for the kind words, I appreciate it

So what your saying is we should just DTD every other day for the entire cycle hahaha

my cycles are kind of already that long anyways. I normally ovulate around cd21. So maybe this will make me ovulate earlier with a longer LP?

I appreciate you sharing your experience. I know everyone is different. Just wanted to see what to kind of expect. I will start OPKs twice a day probably beginning cd10 just so I have it covered.

Temping is something I want to try but don't think it will work because my sleep times are COMPLETELY erratic. Plus our dogs (big dogs) sleep in bed with us so I'm afraid that would skew the temps. Maybe it'll be worth a shot?

Thanks so much for sharing!

Also I guess I should getting pregnant doeant really seem to be my issue. It is the STAYING pregnant I haven't gotten the hang of yet :/ so hopefully this does the trick!!!

How are you doing with the clomid? I'm a day ahead of you with the same dose. So far the only side effect I'm noticing is fatigue!
