  • When I took clomid I would have good months and bad months. What signs are you looking for when you ovulate. You should be looking for egg white consistency discharge.

  • Well I've been taking my temp since I got my period but I was sick with a cold so my temps were high so I don't know if I should even go by that, I thought I would have some sort of cramping by now

  • Assuming you took it days 5-9, you'll probably ovulate late, most (not all) usually do. If you haven't ovulated by day 19/20 by your temps or progesterone test, I'd tell the doc and have them give you provera or prometrium to bring on a period and start a new cycle. You could also ask for an ultrasound to see if you have any follicles growing in there, if you have at least one good size follicle, then you could get an hCG injection to trigger the follicles to release :)

    Good luck!

  • Oh and discard the temps from when you were sick but continue to temp now. You should have a baseline idea and if it goes above your "normal" baseline temps then you know you ovulated. At least you were sick at the beginning of the cycle and not the middle! If you were sick around the middle then there would be no way to pinpoint O, unless you can feel it happening.

    For example, even if I didn't temp before O and thought I O'ed and temped one time, I would know by that one temp because I know my baseline....usually around 97.7

  • I took chlomid when i got preg with my dd on days 5-9 and then i went to the drs on day 17 and i still had no viable eggs so i went back a few days later on day 22 and had 1 good egg. So id have to agree with all4mymarine you might ovulate late. GL!
