I'm in the midst of my first run on clomid, and could really use some advice and perspective from those of you who have already been through it all. If there any success stories out there, by the way, please do tell, because I really need to buoy my spirits at the moment.
DH and I have been TTC since December. My cycles have been horrendously irregular since coming off of the pill, and I suffered an early miscarriage in mid-August (just at about 5 weeks). Had to do a 10-day run of provera to draw down AF a few weeks ago because I hadn't had a period since the miscarriage, and I am now CD 17 and I have not yet ovulated. I took clomid (50mg) from Days 5-9, and my doctor seemed rather convinced I'd ovulated on CD 14 (even though I've historically had 6 week cycles -- when I was regular, of course).
I've been temping, and there has been no temp spike the past several days. My cervix (sorry for the TMI), however, is now high and open (has been that way since yesterday).
What I'm wondering is whether or not any of this sounds normal, and whether or not the cervix position is a reliable gauge of a looming ovulation while on clomid? I know that looking for EWCM is unwise b/c clomid messes with its production, but I'm trying to look for reliable signs so that DH and I don't miss our window. OPK's drive me absolutely insane, so I'm avoiding them for my own sake at this point. Did any of you ovulate past CD 14 while on clomid and if so, what tipped you off that you were about to O?
Also (and sorry for all the questions), when do you think I should call my doctor if I don't O?
I just feel so lost and uncertain about everything right now. It's making it hard to think about anything else :(
Thanks in advance for you help!
