Today is my last day of clomid. I was wondering when I should start using opk's.. I was thinking I read somewhere that you should start using them 3 days after your last pill. Then bd every other day.. Is this correct? This is my first cycle of clomid and want to make sure I'm doing things right...Thanks ladies in advance for any help!

 I believe the bd'ing every other day is the sperm meets egg plan and IMO it sounds like a good one, unless your dh has low sperm count. In which case I'd only bd every 2 days: sex, off, off, sex pattern... And then once you get fertile cm bd every other day, and then every day once you get pos OPK until ovulation is confirmed with temping! That's just my remedy but bd'ing every other day works for many women as well! GL

Ok thanks I believe I'll bd every other day and then when I get fertile cm bd every day. Thanks for your opinion!  So should I start opk's 3 days after the last clomid pill?

 Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't even answer your question! I would personally start using the OPK's once my cm started to be more fertile, but I know 100% I do get fertile cm. I don't know if you do or not, unfortunately some women don't, so if I were you, I would start testing at least once a day as soon as you feel comfortable. You don't want to miss your surge. 3 days after last pill sounds like a good start! Or you could start sooner, but I def wouldn't start later! Good luck for a big fat egg and baby dust!!
