calling all the clomid pros out there....

Okay, so this is my third cycle with clomid, 50mg days 3-7. In a non-clomid cycle, I always ovulate around cd 14. This month, tho, I got a positive opk cd 13, 14, 15 and 16 (today). I can usually tell when I'm about to O because of the nice egg white cm, but not so much with clomid. So I guess my question is, do you ovulate later than usual while on clomid? I sorta feel like I O'd yesterday because my boobs are sore today, and any of the egg white cm I had over the weekend is gone, gone, gone.

Next month I'm temping again (even though I hate temping! hate, hate, hate it!). Unless, of course, I end up knocked up this month.

Yeah, right. I'll be trying to get pregnant until menopause, I'm sure.


  1. I don't know the answer, but I'm very interested to see what people say.

  2. From what I understand, you ovulate on the last day of the positive opk (i.e. 15-16 for you). The cervical mucus is present early to assist the sperm to exist for more than the usual few minutes, and travel 'north' to the egg:-) Ideally, the sperm would already be present before the egg makes it out of the fallopian tube.

    Hopeing, hopeing, hopeing, for you!!!

  3. When I was on the Clomid, I ovulated a little later than normal for me (although before the Clomid I tended to ovulate a little early, like day 12), usually around day 15 or 16. And I had a lot less cervical mucus than normal too. And it made my PMS symptoms far worse than normal too. Which, of course, made me think I was pregnant, but I wasn't.

  4. I don't know because I never O'd without it! But I'm so dry that I never have cm, so I can't help you with that either...geez, I'm worthless, lol! Good Luck...may the 2ww end with a BFP that sticks!


  5. I ovulated about 2 or 3 days later on my only cycle of Clomid. Here's to wishing you a quick 2ww with good, sticky news at the end!
