My name is Melissa, I am new here, and fairly new to this adventure! I had breast cancer in Jan 2009 and finally got the clearance to start trying in March. We have been trying since then with no luck yet.
I have only had 2 periods naturally since May so the doctor put me on provera to make me get a period and then on Clomid for CD 5-9. Well - I don’t think it worked. I do chart my temps and they have stayed the same with no spike at all. I am so sick of not ovulating! I got a blood test yesterday to see if I ovulated at all and I told the doc about my temps and he also is now expecting the test to show I did not ovulate. So, he will likely up my dosage to 100 of Clomid from 50 for next month.
I am already so sick of this - my friends are no help. “Don’t stress out - it will happen for you!” uh - maybe it won’t dude! I am so glad to find this site where I can talk to people who understand my crazy!
In your opinion, is it worth it to take OPK’s next round of clomid? I have taken them before and they did indicate a LH surge, even though I clearly didn’t ovulate (no temp raise, no period) so I have chalked them up to be unreliable. But - if any of you used them and they were accurate I may try it again. Any advice on how to make my crazy less, well, crazy would be great!
