My OB/GYN would give me Clomid if I want it but... I don't know. I'm not sure it feels right yet. At the same time, I keep hoping and hoping to just ovulate on my own! It's happened before, why not now? Sigh. CD30+ and nothing.
We are not going to do any treatments that involve the baby not being conceived the old-fashioned way. No matter how much we would like more kids, that is just not something we will do. So, you see, our situations here are very different. What we have in common is that the baby we would like is not here. And that we are bitter and often sad. (And, I think many of us are also very tired of trying.)
I did not even realize how far in the cycle I am. Then again, having been sick over a week early in the cycle, I think I may ovulate late, anyway. I have not temped and don't think I will. Not sure about OPK's either, as they don't work well for me.
BTW, does anyone know if never having a truly positive OPK can be a clue of any particular fertility issue? I ovulate regularly, based on temps and other symptoms. However, my OPK's, no matter how many times per day I test, are never truly positive. I only get faint lines for a day and nothing at all the rest of the cycle. My LH was tested early in the cycle and came back normal.
Maybe I should head back to the gyno. The problem is, though, that last time she had no interest in my charts, which annoyed me. She liked OPKs as the modern option.. However, as I have said a million times, those don't even show whether you actually ovulated, unlike temps. Besides, this lady wants a lot of blood work (functioning of different organs), which we cannot afford.
