    Question Clomid + IUI = BFN but no AF?!

    Hi ladies! I could use some advice!

    Here's my background...

    I've done 4 rounds of Clomid. The 1st round was 50mgs and no O. The 2nd and 3rd rounds I O'd, but got BFN's! So... my OBGYN sent DH for a SA and I had an HSG test done. DH had a very high count, but some slow swimmers and my HSG was all clear!

    This cycle was our 4th round of Clomid, but we also added our first IUI. It appeared we timed the IUI perfectly and my doctor said the wash looked very promising. Well, now I'm 17dpo.... I poas on 11dpo, 14dpo and 15dpo - all BFN! I had some twinges and slight cramping for a few days, but no sign of AF! In all my previous Clomid cycles I got AF by 13dpo, so I'm really stumped about what's going on with my body!

    Any advice or input would be greatly appreciated!

    AF showed up for me today - 16 DPO. This was our first shot at TTC so I don't have much experience to lend.

    Have you talked to your dr? I would say, judging by your history with AF showing up at 13DPO, that this is a little strange. Wonder if the IUI has any impact on AF showing up on time? That seems to be the only variable between your last cycles...

    Did you take Prometrium after your IUI? I know for me when I had my first IUI I received a BFN and still no AF. Turns out the progeterone can cause your period to be delayed. I continueed my premetrium because no one told me when to stop. If I had stopped sooner, AF would have arrived sooner.

    I didn't take Prometrium, so I can rule that out. It's been 3 days since I've tested so I'll poas one more time tonight. If I still get a BFN (which I'm sure I will) then I'll wait to see if AF shows up by tomorrow. If that doesn't happen then I'll call my Dr to find out what to do next. I still feel twinges down there on and off... it seems so strange to me!

    Did you take an opks to verify you actually ovulated? I took Clomid, but my body wasn't releasing the mature follicles, so we had to use trigger shots along with the Clomid. The one time I didn't, I never got my period and they had to give me Provera.

    Sounds like we are in the exact same position! We did IUI on the fourth round of clomid last cycle and it took forever to get AF- I called and made an appt. with my Dr. to figure out what was going on 'cause I had taken dozens of tests(all negative). Then of course an hour later- I got AF!!! But it was 18 DPO that it came so that was quite a while. But hopefully yours is a BFP!!! But if you still don't get one or the other by tomorrow or tonite, I would call your Dr. so you can figure out what is up!

    I tested again this morning BFN! So I'll be calling my doctor today. I used digital opk's and charted on Fertility Friend to confirm O. Both confirmed O, but my temps were wacky... they never got super high and stayed pretty close to the coverline. In previous cycles my temps were much higher post O. I'm wondering if the egg just didn't release and now I have a cyst (that I can't feel) that may be delaying my period.

    I'm 7 days past my last Provera pill and still no period! I've never gone this long after Provera with no period. It always come 3-5 days after my last pill. UGH! I don't know what's going on with my body lately!!! So frustrating! I'm wondering if stress is to blame. We're in the process of building a house not to mention the stress of TTC.

    Hi, Hopeful. I've fallen off the site a bit because of the problems connecting but I was just wondering how you made out. I would hope by now AF has arrived??
