    MrsW, I had been BBT charting for few months on the suggestion of my endocrinologist before seeing my FS, so that indicated I wasn't O'ing. FS did order a day21 test which did confirm I wasn't O'ing, but FS had already written a script for clomid. I haven't even tried OPK as I have PCOS and have heard there are false-positives. I have had more day21 tests which confirm I do O, and bbt chart also indicates that. I guess things work different for all of us 

    Also been using pre-seed since TTC.

    It can be very frustrating getting your point across to your FS. But hang in there 

    MrsW...you can anything you want and if we know we will tell you...i think as purpletulip said you should do a bbt chart it gives you a good overview of your cycles. OPK's can be tricky and should be used along with a chart. You can use the fertility friends ones we use by clicking on our links and sign up. It a great site for tracking your cycles.

    AFM...got my progesterone test results today.........57.3......so im pretty happy with this number. Oh and as for you test MrsW...i day over shouldnt matter that much !

    MrsW - charting will give you an idea as to whether OPKs work for you and you can use that info to decide whether it is worthwhile to buy them. Remember also that you should only have 2 days in the month when OPKs are positive, if you get any more than that they aren't working. I love charting, it told me both that I wasn't ovulating, and when I finally started! Oh and I bought preseed as well, except that I bought it on ebay and accidentally had it sent to my workplace! Lucky they didn't examine the packaging too closely . We are happy to answer questions, we've all got a lot from asking each other.

    Wickednails - sounds good!

    AFM: Currently at 4DPO . Waiting is not my thing though!

    Wicked Nails - that's so exciting!!! What a great progesterone level! Hurray!! Fingers crossed for you Hun!!!!

    Well CD 10 here, finished my Clomid yesterday. Didn't really have any side effects this time which was good. I've been keeping temps for the first time. What am I looking for around o time? How much should it rise by?

    Also should I start opk soon? Do I just poas every morning and that's it?

    I've got acne and the dreaded bacne at the moment it really kills my self esteem, I can't find anything that helps it? Surely I must have pcos?

    hi guys im a newbie
    im 24 (nearly 25) was diagnosed with PCOS at 16. moved to aus 2 n half yrs ago. got married n me n my hubby r trying for bubbas,, i went to Dr n pretended i didnt know whats wrong just so i could have all tests done 2 be 100% sure it is what i have. but since my periods are VERY irregular n my sis has the double uterus and cervix i was reffered to a specialist. i had bloods and scans done all of which came back good. nothing wrong i just dont ovulate. so specialist started me on a low dose of clomid (25mg). im on my 1st cycle this is day 25. i took clomid day 3 to 7 with no side effects, prob made me happier...
    had a scan on day 12 which showed 1 follicle approx 10mm but dr said it was prob to early to say whether i had ovulated as i wud prob ovulate on day 17 to 19. i had my blood done yesterday to test progesterone level and should here from dr in next couple of days as to whether i ovulated and when to do the preg test if i did or to up the dose of clomid if i never.
    about day 19 of my cycle i noticed some bleeding but it was just slight, no clots and only when i wiped. as i am a practice nurse i nipped in to speak to dr at work who reassured me it wud b ok and that it was either ovulation or implantation of a fertised egg.. fingers crossed for either really.

    Your OPK's you should pee on them in the afternoon around 2pm is best but anywhere between 10am - 8pm. As for your temps i think it should have a slight drop then a rise above the coverline, you may have to check this with the others though cause im not that good at remembering to take my temp

    CYH - this is my first month of temp charting, but i didn't notice any significant temp increase until after O and it took 2 days to reach it's peak...feel free to stalk my chart

    Elly - good luck with the wait

    Wicked and Tesh - hope this turns into one of the best weeks for you EVA .

    Hi Sfurniss

    AFM - well you can kinda tell from my temp dive over the last 2 days that AF is not too far away. I just hope she comes soon so we can get cracking on this next IUI adventure

    I have never experienced bleeding or spotting mid cycle or O but I believe some people do speak to your FS about it
