Hi Ladies....

So AF came on the 23rd, I'd say early evening....maybe around 6:00. Not just spotting, she was fully here by about 8:00. So I was counting the 24th as CD1, which would put me at tomorrow (monday) taking the first clomid pill. Should I wait until tomorrow morning or should I take it tonight before bed since technically the 5th day after AF would be tonight??

thanks for any input...

I have heard different things.. I have heard if your flow starts after 5... count the next day as day one.... I called my Dr.. and he said no matter what time it starts.. if you start before "bed" count that as day one, as long as you had a flow.. not just spotting. So I started late Monday... the 21 around 5pm... so I started the pills on the 25th.

Thank you GraysMama For my BEAUTIFUL Siggy!!!

I always count CD as the first day of flow (not just spotting), before bed time. The I always took clomid CD 3-7, some take it 5-9, and I took mine at night. Got to avoid some of the s/e that way.

Good luck!

Yet another wonderful siggy by HeatherW.... thank you so much!!!

My RE said anything that started after 12noon would be the next day. So I would have counted Dec 24 as CD1. I also was told to take it at night to lessen the side effects.

I did take it last night...right around 10pm, so even if I was going to take it in the morning, it would have only been about an 8 hour difference. I wanted to take them at night this cycle, so I thought it made sense to take it 8 hours earlier, rather than 20 hours later.
I guess we'll see....maybe I'll get lucky and those extra 8 hours are just what I need!!
