1st cycle of clomid, got a bfn on CD28. normal cycle is 28d, but has been a bit over the place recently, however, rarely more than 2d out. now CD31 and no signs of my period. no backache, had cramps a week ago that have amounted to precisely zilch. no spotting. dont even have that heavy full feeling in my abdomen that i normally get before period.

i know that its probably the clomid. my cycle will obviously be affected. on CD10 i had 5 lovely big eggs (3 on tubeless side, 2 on tubed) and nurse said that it looked like i would ov within the next few days, had ov pains from CD13-CD17.

tell me its the clomid (or fan the fires of my hope)

Waves at Lissie from the Clomid thread.

I think today would be a reasonable day to do a test. You could well be pregnant and at least then you'll know...

thanks, i know i will have to retest. its odd, i was desperate to test a week ago, but now that its come to it im a big yellow bellied chicken wink

lottie, that would make sense. do have a lot of pg symptoms, but also painfully aware that pg/period symptoms are pretty much the same.

think the reason im freaking out a bit is because with my ep i got a bfn on CD26 and faint bfp on CD28. then bled, then clear bfp on CD33ish. ignorance is bliss (even when it isnt)

Lissie - I echo what LL said. Also you could leave it a couple more days if you would feel happier with that, couldn't you? But perhaps testing today would help settle your mind a bit? It is a tough one. Just want to say, thinking of you in your dilemma time.

thanks lottie and red. got 3 more months til we see cons, then we'll see what happens. will not be able to afford ivf, so unless the PCT will allow us a cycle as compensation for ds's birth. would happily consider egg donation, tbh have reached the stage where i would try anything. im so scared that this is never going to happen.

have spoken to Fertility Unit and they said that i need a blood test. apparently clomid can delay bfp's (varying progesterone etc) but if CD10 scan showed 5 mature eggs then i should have had something by now. because of my history i need a test asap. so apparently it really aint over til the red witch sings. just waiting for gp to call me back.

Just saw this. OMG fingers very tightly crossed for you!

OracleInaCoracle Fri 19-Jun-09 17:52:45

thank you! same here x

OracleInaCoracle Fri 19-Jun-09 18:42:07

ok, gp has arranged a wee test for me 1st thing monday and whatever the result i need a blood test on monday too. she was lovely and said she was hoping desperately that it was a bfp.

i can hardly dare to hope!
