So I had an ultrasound tuesday, CD 11. It showed an 11 size Follie, and a few smaller.

Yesterday I took an OPK and got what I THINK was a positive, but I may have been more dehydrated so it could have been more concentrated like FMU (though it wasn't) and maybe not entirely accurate because of that.

Today (CD 14) I had a repeat ultrasound. It showed a 16 size Follie, and an 11. So, they said to trigger tomorrow night. I had a negative OPK this afternoon.

But look at these! Isn't that confusing?!

I was also on 100mg of clomid this month.

So question: Should be worried that if it WAS a positive OPK that the trigger is too late to help?

I guess this is why they tell you not to mess with OPKS when on clomid!

After years of trying, 2 years of fertility meds, multiple surgeries, blood draws and needle sticks, some awful pre-IVF complications, and endometriosis and PCOS,
We are done TTC. Praying for peace as we accept this...
Hoping for some comfort after our most recent (and 3rd) surgery and starting Lupron!

I never took OPKs with Clomid...I figured we were already spending enough money for the meds/ultrasounds that I didn't want to spend more on OPKs I have read that Clomid can make OPKs inaccurate, so maybe that is what happened? I'm sorry I'm not much help, but I hope this is your cycle!!

Melissa is right, the clomid sure could mess up those OPK's. If you are going in for u/s monitoring then they surely won't miss your O-time!

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