Latebloomer or anyone using fertility monitor

HI, I am hoping someone can help me. This is my first month of clomid and I took my last pill on Sunday.Doc says I should O about 5 days later. Well on Tuesday (2 days after clomid) and on cycle day 10, my monitor said PEAK . I thought it was way early & so did my doctors office.I went out and bought the sticks and they were negative for O. I bd anyway but am sooooo confused.Can anyone help!

Re: Latebloomer or anyone using fertility monitor

LBP: you just confirmed what the instructions says. Taking Clomid while using monitor will read high and peak because of the amount of estrogen in clomid. Because of your experience, I'm going to ask my Dr what he suggest (TONIGHT IS MY APPOINTMENT ) The instructions recommends you ask your Dr about using monitor with clomid. How frustrating you and I both know the joy of seeing PEAK and it may not be PEAK What does your Dr say?

Re: Latebloomer or anyone using fertility monitor

latebloomer,

The nurse at my doctors office was surprised when I told her I had a peak at day 10. She didn't think the clomid would mess up my monitor but she didn't seem too sure????? She said to bd anyway.I did, but I went out and bought the pee sticks to be sure.Like I said they were negative and still are. It is cycle day 13.I have wet cm but not ewcm. I will bd again tonight just to be safe.Let me know what your doctor says about the clomid & monitor and best of luck to you! Write soon and let me know how it went!! I was be anxious to hear!Thanks for the reply!

Re: Latebloomer or anyone using fertility monitor

HI LBP:

Well, my appointment was a bit deflating. Dr says monitors don't work that good and wants us to have an IUI asap because my DH sperm count is low. He also said we don't have a chance to conceive with normal BDing due to my DH low sperm count. He is starting me on Clomid CD3, Estrogen and Progesterone thereafter. I felt a bit like my "candle was blown out", but I woke up feeling like I'm out of the denial that all these months of TTC on our own would do it. So I'm going to have me FSH test next week and start his regime. I spoke to my accupunturist he agrees with my DH low sperm count an IUI would be the only next step. We've been at this for a number of years and gave up until this past June when my accupuncturist gave us the dream back ! So even though the Dr wasn't all smiles - I woke up grateful to take the next step and get my head out of the sand. He said he would like to try the IUI for 3 months ....say a prayer

BTW - we've been through all of the above with shots and fertility clinic back in 2003 - but this time the drugs are by the mouth and topical. It ain't over 'til its over!

Thanks for your support. Today is cd 26 - I'll be having my FSH test on cd 3 so I'll be in touch.

Re: Latebloomer or anyone using fertility monitor

Latebloomer,
Merry Christmas! I hope it's going well. I was O' ing, according to opt so here's new a Christmas eve baby!LOL With regards to your appointment at least you know where u stand and now can go forward! Your moving on to the next step and I think I will be too if nothing happens this month.We too have been trying for a while and I am ready to try something else. Did you like your doctor?DOes he seem positive because thats important too! Why doesn't he like the monitors???I am curious about that.I won't bother with mine anymore if they don't work. But anyway I think you guys will be blessed in 2006, sending lots of prayers & baby dust to you!Keep your chin up, it will work out!Have a great CHristmas!

Re: Latebloomer or anyone using fertility monitor

LBP!!!

I just heard from my Doctor! He said my FSH test is very good. We're MOVING FORWARD! He wishes my DH sperm count was a bit higher, but he said he would like to do 3 IUIs with Clomid, Estrogen and Progesterone. YIPPEE! We waited for over a week for the blood work results to come back. I'm on CD 12 so this weekend BD is on our own. We start Clomid next cycle CD 3. Wouldn't it be a slice of heaven if we caught the egg this month!!!!

Oh I'm so happy and GRATEFUL I could jump throught this screen. I'm going on vacation to see my Mom and its O time....too funny....at MOM's HOUSE! I have a big smile on my face !

Thanks for being here, wish you all the best while ttc! lets' keep in touch!

Re: Latebloomer or anyone using fertility monitor

Latebloomer & ibp35 i am in the same situation, on clomid and o scope and cm saying o but temp chart saying 'no hope in hell'

Latebloomer - good luck i hope you catch, we hope to catch before 3rd April as that is when my 2nd Fertility specialist check is and thats when they want to schedule ivf, i am so hoping we can do this the natural way as im scared to have an anaesthetic (dont like needles) but im sure it will be worth it.

Ibp35 - how many dpo are you now? Good luck
