OK ladies, figured this was the best thread to get this kind of help with....
My FS hasn't been monitoring me during my time with clomid. At all. I thought this was normal but it seems it is not? I know for certain that I ovulated the month after my surgery (without clomid) as I had a bt, and my last instructions from FS were to take clomid from 2nd day of my period etc. No future appt, no blood test, although he seemed pretty keen for IVF but said I could try for a few months.
So my first cycle with clomid, I got AF on day 32 and I felt what I thought was O pain earlier in the cycle, and it looks like my temps went up. However, I didn't get the symptoms I had when I first ovulated, which was very sore boobs, I got absolutely nothing. I've since been told by someone who was on clomid that they had the same, ovulated the first time but next 2 rounds of clomid didn't work, but still got AF. I myself have just started my second round with clomid.
So now I am scared that I am not only wasting clomid cycles, but wasting time. This is more than just impatience as I have recently had severe endometriosis removed and have been told I can't try for too long before it all comes back. I'm a bit upset because I have no idea whether I should be going up a dose (still on 50) or not as I have not had it confirmed it is making me ovulate. And I have not had an ultrasound to check for the risk of multiples.
So my questions are these:
Can your temps go up after you think you may have ovulated and stay up until just before AF, but you haven't actually ovulated?
What days during your clomid cycle do you get bts to check for ovulation?
Would I need to give a GP info about what tests I need if they are not a FS, or will they immediately know what tests I am after? What info would I need to give them?
I am a bit upset today because everyone else's FS seems to be checking their progress and making sure things are working for them and I feel like mine was just humoring me until he can start IVF and either hasn't put much faith in the possibility of me getting preg while on clomid, or is just more interested in IVF. I've pretty much been left to my own devices for the next few months (timeframe was unclear) and it has added to my stress levels, it seems to have caught up with me particularly today! So I am going to see a GP and ask for a bt, even if they don't want to do it under medicare I would pay for it as a private patient if I can!
Thanks in advance to anyone who can help out

my FS is the same. we might share same FS. This is my 1st cycle of clomid and he told me to start clomid again from 3rd day of cycle if i have my periods before seeing him. i have read that you can only have 6 to 8 round of clomid so i am gonna ask him to do the ultrasound and monitor my ovulation next cycle , rather than only relying on bbt.

My FS is the same - I was starting to get a little freaked out. (I have been reading this forum for a few weeks.) I have been on Clomid for 3 cycles now, and the only test I have had was the day 21 to see if I ovulated. FS said levels low, but did indicate ovulation, but since upped my dose to 50 mg. But she never suggested ultrasounds.
Still not BFP, but here's hoping. Currently at CD22 (of a usual 29 day cycle)...

Purpletulip, he's not even doing that for me! I wouldn't be as freaked out if he was doing at least some form of monitoring, but he's not doing any!

Girlies most doctors dont give a rats as long as they get paid....you have to ask...demand these tests as it is about you not them. If your not getting what you expect and pay for then you need to speak up asap. I dont mean to sound harsh ive just spent to much tome and money on doctors passing me off etc etc and i wont do it anymore....Some dr heads are so far up there.
Anyhoo, that turned into a bit of a vent. sorry. Im currently 6DPO, with sore boobies and horrible mood swings. My baby girl has a bad virus with a really high temp poor thing, when she gets to hot she breaks out in hives (daddys fault, came form his side) so to add to her misery she is mighty itchy.
I have app with my fs in two weeks and have been referred to the woman clinic for a second opinion on ttc and lupus, so should be interesting i have to wait till 6th june though.
Hope you all had a nice weekend.

Thanks wickednails. Ellymoe, when I see my FS next I'm going to speak with her about the ultrasounds. Just wish there was some consistency among FS.
Have a nice week.

Wickednails, just left a message for FS asking for blood test to make sure clomid working and U/S to make sure lining of uterus is all good. Should hear back tomorrow according to admin. Presumably if he says no, he will have to tell me why not! Will let you know how I go and thanks for the advice, I need to get my pushy b*tch on

CD30 12dpo omg this last 48 hours is going toooooooo slow! If no AF by Friday I may get excited.... So far holding off testing not sure how I am restraining myself!

nat278-Ive got 3 pregnancy tests sitting here looking at me...Im quite tempted to test tomorrow morning but still undecided because Im not sure what my cycles are really like! Is this tww driving you nuts too??Let us know how you go..would be good to see some bfp's!
Ellymoe-My specialist doesnt monitor me either...only does the cd21 progesterone test and talks to me over the phone. If this cycle isnt successful I will be making an appointment even if he doesnt think its neccessary,after all it is our body and they get paid lots of $$$ to do stuff all.....
Wickednails-hows the mood swings etc going? Hope your feeling ok
