Last month on the Clomid I O'd on CD 19, and then AF came 14 days later. I wasn't going to use my OPK's this month, so I didn't start testing on CD 10 like I had the previous month. I got curious and started the OPK's on CD 16, and never got a positive. (I stopped testing a couple of days ago.)

I am having very tender breasts, like I did last month after I O'd, so, for now, I am assuming that I did O, but I'm really not sure. If I did, chances are I O'd before CD 16, when I started testing. If I continue to have a 14 day LP, then I should get AF on CD 29 (tomorrow.) (My OPK's started out darker on CD 16 and faded to stark white a few days later. That's what they did last month after I O'd.)

So, my questions are: When do you think I should test if AF doesn't show? I really don't have any intention of testing until AF is due, but since I'm not sure when I O'd, I don't know when to test. I don't want to just wait for days and days, when there is a slim chance I could be pregnant, KWIM? I'm not that patient.

Also, I am supposed to call my doctor if AF doesn't show (to make sure the Clomid is working). The 50mg worked the first month easily, so I have high hopes that it did work this month. But, in case it didn't, how long do you think I should wait before I call my doctor if AF doesn't show?

I know I might be jumping the gun here, but I just wanted everyone's opinion.

Thanks ladies!

Their is a good chance you o'ed before cd16 so that means you could be 13 or 14dpo
and if AF is due tomorrow, I would test wednesday

Are you having any symptoms?

About calling the Dr. I have no idea because I'm not sure how the clomid works sorry

The only thing I've got is very tender breasts, which I had last time several days before AF started. I also started today having AF like pains. Well, honestly, they aren't really pains. It's just an odd feeling in my uterus, I suppose, that I sometimes get before AF, KWIM? Sort of a fluttering feeling, kind of.

If you feel like you Oed before CD16 I would use CD15 as O day and go from there to guess when AF is due.

I might wait an extra 3-4 days past when you think AF is due to call the Dr just in case, depending on how that falls with the weekend.
