hi everyone, my husband and I have been ttc for 1.5 yrs now, however I have no cycle and havent O'd in 14 yrs. I am on my first month of 100mg clomid, and I wasnt expecting it to work...but yesturday I have lots of CM, and today my OPK was borderline positive (the lines were the same darkness). However, we havent BD'd for 3-4 days as my husband has been away!!! he is back tonight but im scared its too late. IS IT???? aaargh, feel really hopeful but don't want to get too excited. I have a second follicle tracking scan tomorrow AM, the first one showed one follicle maturing, 17mm at CD13. today is CD17.
Can anyone share advice/likelihood I have O'd, experience?....
Hopefully the clomid is working for you; its main job is to make the ovaries work harder.
Using OPKs when taking clomid is not a good idea at all as clomid can increase hormone levels markedly. These kits measure LH and the kit may well be just reading this increased hormone level instead. I would not rely on an OPK at all.
It will likely make no difference to any overall outcome that your H has been away for these few days tbh. If you both want sex tonight then go for it!.
I wish you the best of luck with your second tracking scan tomorrow; the optimal size for such follicles I think is about 20mm.
