  • I took my first round of clomid in October and my husband and I BD before during and after AF. During it, we just done it in the shower! :D

  • You may be surprised this month with how long your period lasts, the clomid may make your period lighter since it's an anti estrogen. Actually I wouldn't recommend ttc in the shower, because obviously you've been trying for awhile! Having sex in water could totally ruin any chances of conception. I don't even take baths around my O time.

    And FYI, with Clomid, you can sometimes ovulate later, like as late as day 20. Chart your temps to be sure of your O date and insist on the progesterone test 7 days after the date *you* know you O'd! I wouldn't do more than 4 rounds of Clomid....if you don't know why, just do a little google research on it :)

    Oh and if you are on your period, especially around day 14, I would have sex anyway...I know it's not ideal but some women do ovulate while they are still having their period and conceive!
