I did one cycle of clomid then showed a :) on CD18 on my LH surge tracker. Took my first digital test on PO day 5 and it was negative. Now CD 29, PO day 8 and I'm having ALL the symptoms of PMS. Any chance I could still be pregnant? I won't test again until PO day 11 to make sure I get an accurate result. Thanks for your help :) this would be so wonderful!

I heard with clomid you can get false positives on OPKs, test again on 12-14 DPO or on the day of your scheduled AF to increase your chances of an accurate result.


good luck!

Welcome to MDC!!  wave.gif


Clomid can cause symptoms itself.  I would just wait out your LP to test.  12-14dpo will increase your likelihood of accurate results.  There is a clomid thread you can jump into for more support called "Taking the Scenic Route to a BFP."  Good luck!
