I don't get a true pos on OPK's without vitex. Not sure if I'm ovulating without it, the bloods this month on CD21 will tell me. Unfortunately I have to wait for 9 April to find out from the gyno bc I have so many tests and procedures sighs

Thanks delirium. I have never heard of it. Might have to do some research to see if it will help with the clomid.
Most people that are close to us know we are ttc. This one particular friend seems to think it is ok to openly lecture me and say that we should be doing a,b and c. Like she is an expert and my fs knows nothing
Honestly don't know why i even listen and then on top of that let it get to me.
It can't be taken with Clomid, partly I think bc they do exactly the same thing. Vitex makes the pituritary gland produce LH in mid cycle then progesterone in the tww.
Delirium.... I noticed that you mentioned about using Vitex to lengthen your LP, and realised I now need to start to look into things like that.
This is my 3rd IVF cycle but unfortunately I think I'm bust. Yesterday (Sat) I had one spot of blood, today (Sun) another bigger spot, but that's it. It's like AF is teasing me - if you're going to come, just come and get it over and done with. What I'm so annoyed with is though I told my FS that my usual cycle is 28/29 days, I also told him that AF came early in both my previous IVF cycles (22 + 24 days), obviously due to all those drugs. This means that if yesterdays blood was the start of AF, then my beautiful embie may have implanted, but hadn't yet had any chance to send messages (hormones or whatever it sends) to keep AF away and will have been washed away now. DH is even more furious than I am, as he remembers me telling the FS this, and obviously the FS hasn't factored early periods during IVF cycles into the equation. Has anyone else experienced this? (ie. normal cycles, but early ones following IVF rounds). If so, what have FSs decided to do?
I have told pretty much everyone we are ttc, my dad got all excited when we told him and told all his friends. My mother is the only one that really says anything hurtful always asking why I want kids and what I'm gonna do with them and saying how annoying having kids is, thanks mum.
