    Warning this may be (tmi) ok so today I used just a tad bit of preseed externally and the hubby said it was still way to gushy on the inside....I have been taking epo and was wondering if that may be working....This is my first time on both and I am so confused. also does O make you tired... That is the only symptom that I am having... any help would be nice ladies.. hope everyone else is taking it easy and preparing to catch those eggies.

    I thought I'd be dry inside too especially since I'm on Clomid but I'm not. maybe you can try being intimate first and then add the preseed if necessary. also I usually check my cervix position and cm before dtd just so that I know exactly what's going on.

    as for being tired-that can be a side effect of progesterone after ovulation. fingers crossed!

    My day #1 for my first round of clomid was on Feb 19. I ovulated on my own (with metformin), but always late in the cycle and with luteal phase defect. My RE started me out at 100mg, thankfully I didn't seem to have many side effects from it. We have the issue of male factor infertility too, so my hubby's been on clomid to for the last month or so. Got my opk+ yesterday (yay!), and going in for first IUI today. We're just doing home OPKs this month, my RE wanted us to do full monitoring with ultrasounds but we've been out of the country for the last week. So I'm not even sure the timing for the IUI is great. I'm a bit nervous (ok, really nervous), and trying to not get my hopes up too much this cycle.
    Good luck to everyone this month!

    Thanks Promise.... I think you are right bc I did get a dark opk it wasn't +, but I missed a day and tested the day after and it was very light... so I think I O Feb28 and I was extremely tired Mar1. We dtd Mar1 so I hope I caught the lil eggie.

    Silverlining that sounds very promising... plus u O on your own that is great. I have a question how does the clomid work for men...this is the second time I heard of a man taking it I am curious.

    Tamel sorry I cant help you much, as this is my first time on Clomid.

    Today I went for an Ultrasound, at CD16 I have a 10mm follicle all others are smaller
    my lining is 6mm..

    Iam bummed and disapointed, she asked me if i O i told her not as far as i know. Then they took some blood and they told me they will let me know whats the next step. Iam so bummed i was kind of expecting to get a trigger shot today, and a bunch of follicles............but just one thats 10mm.....sounds like my kind of luck!

    I have also heard of taking Clomid after the first one didn't work, without a period, it is called a "stair-step" method and supposedly it works.
    But is it sure that you are out for this cycle without it? Couldn't you O later?

    As for me, CD18 and still no positive OPK...

    Koi and ticktock I am one day behind you ladies and not much going on here either. But I will remain positive as clomid does make us O later in our cycles... so its just a waiting game...just keep waiting....waiting waiting. I stoped taking the epo and also didn't try to induce this cycle... I think I will take a month off if I don't get my bfp this round. It sucks bc I tired to cover all the bases...but some things are out of our control...

    afm cd17 and Saturday is my p4 blood test. think positive.....
