It's just a drug that brings on ovulation (like Clomid, but less harsh on your system).
If OI doesn't work for us after these next few cycles, then we'll be heading down the IVF path as well. Asked my FS if it would be worth doing IUI and he said in my case it wouldn't help.

How is everyone travelling?
I'm now CD7 and will be taking round 4 of tablets tonight. Not going to use OPKs or HPTs this month and just go by BT results. Feels quite liberating to not be PIAC each morning!! Going to try and BD every two days from tonight now that AF seems to be completely gone (yay! No more spotting!). If this OI cycle is a bust, I will then use OPKs for the next two OI cycles to help me pinpoint O.
Apart from being gassy (TMI), I'm doing well. A couple of sharp side pains, but that's it. Too early for O, so no idea what it's from - maybe follies forming? Hope it's first time lucky! (technically it will be fourth time lucky!)

Oh that sounds promising, @Shrillian .
I'm hoping you catch that eggy this month.
Afm; tonnes of ewcm 7th day of stim.
Not sure what to expect lol.
Had a blood test this morning so, just waiting to hear the results from that. Hoping everything is going to plan.

Good luck Shrillian and Jen, I hope this is your month!
I'm using OPKs for the first time and have no idea what is going on with them. I was getting faint lines (even when I tested at the start of my cycle out of curiosity) and now that I'm close to approaching O the lines have completely disappeared. Have also started charting my temperature as well and it is literally all over the place whith jumps of about .2 to .3 up and down every day for the last few days. Now I'm beginning to wonder if it's possible that I don't even O at all...

My acupuncturist/chines herb practitioner wasn't happy with my cake being so long, so once AF comes we're going to try and regulate it again! At least for now I've stopped getting so stressed and have taken a much more 'wait and see' approach. If things still don't seem right by my Birthday at the end of July I'll get some testing done to see if all is infact working as it should be
And fx for you Shrillian and Jen!

Good to hear I'm not the only one that has had issues with OPKs, I was wondering if they were maybe dodgy - I bought the cheap ones on the internet.

If it's not hitting positive a few times, you should be fine (as in, not having false surges). Some people just get lines throughout their cycle and they have textbook cycles! Don't be freaked out!
Some PCOS symptoms include excess weight around the mid section, excess hair growth, acne... My FS said usually if you tick off two or more, it's a good indication.
However, I technically don't have it (without doing the full on US scans) as my bloods showed I was in "normal" ranges, which is why I was always diagnosed as "Unexplained Infertility". FS wants me to do a full proper US with a proper imaging place as, evidently, their "general" US machines can't detect with such precision. Don't have to do a HyCoSy, thankfully. As yet, anyway.
