I don't chart. I have what's called an OV Watch.
Holy smokes that thing is expensive! I thought I was splurging on my $10 thermometer!

Yeah but my husband is willing to try things. Plus we can use it when we ttc #2. It doesn't go bad. I'm just wondering when I start my clomid treatment, if I should use it since they'll be inducing ovulation? What if I ovulate before they induce??

it is a food in capsule or powder form, i believe tincture too. it grows in the andies, look over on the Maca forms, there has been a lot of success with it shortening cycles, and everything. i have been taking it for a cycle and a half and my last cycle, (took it since cd1) was only 33 days!! and my af visit itself was not painful or clotty and she stayed only 5 days (usually have 50+ day cycles, and visits from 5-14 days)

Is that something you RE suggested? Would it interfere with my clomid, and ovidrel treatment?? I was going to also try acupressure.

umm... if you are on clomid you are going to ovulate only once (if it all). You won't ovulate and then take clomid and ovulate again without having a period. They will start your clomid immedietly after an induced or natural period which will mean you will ovulate about 5-9 days after your last dose of Clomid.

Wow awesome! Hoping it does the same for me! I've been taking it for a week and a half and so far I've only noticed that I'm a little crampy...but I really can't tell if it's from my ovaries or gassiness (I've heard it can upset the GI in some )

I know. They'll induce ovulation with ovidrel once follies are 18 -19 mm. and I believe suppositories of progesterone after ovulation.

OK- I get what you are saying now. I think your watch should still work in that case. If not though, do you temp?

I'll probably post one of today's test later today.
Congrats!!!!!!!! :

hey ladies, i'm back. what's been going on since I left?
post #78 of 682
Tomorrow is going to be chaotic for me, so I'm checking in now:

Name: Heather Nicole
Date: February 1st
Where are you at in your cycle: CD4, TTC MONTH 3
Appointments: n/a..need to make one with the RE to check in.
Symptoms if they apply: AF showing her ugly head
Testing: Started using the First Response Ovulation Monitor (300$...oy!) this month, so we shall see how it goes. I'm also BBT & OPK testing.
Thoughts: February is going to be awesome. DH and I were really disappointed that things didn't work out, but we are roaring and ready to try again this month!

I have an OV watch. It is but it's worth it. I can't tell with my cm when I ovulate. Plus charting was so comfusiing and the watch does all the work 4 you.
