This is the first month that I have taken Clomid and used ovulation tests. Is there a best time during the day to use ovulation tests? I have been using them in the morning and so far they've all been negative. I'm on day 13 of my cycle and according to my obgyn I should ovulate day 14 or 15 while on Clomid. So, based on my doc, I should be ovulating tomorrow or Friday, but I haven't had a positive on my opk yet. Thoughts? I apologize to everyone, I'm new to Clomid and ovulation tests and want to make sure I'm not missing anything. Thanks.
Re: ovulation tests, question **signature warning
As far as clomid, that is a whole other can of worms. Just saying OB and clomid in the same sentence raises the hair in the back of my neck.
Do a bump search about clomid and just read.
I wish you well.

Agree with pp, it's good to test more than once a day, and yes also good to read up on the reasons for having cycles monitored while on clomid or seeing an RE to get evaluated. OB's, while great, sometimes have a reputation of taking a bandaid approach with the clomid prescription and not investigating if there are bigger issues - which can lead to wasted time and further problems. I'm not one to lecture anyone, just that I've ben there myself so agree that it's worth reading into.
Just a tip if you ever need to buy more opk's check out the wondfro kind on Amazon, saves a few dollars. (but fingers crossed that it works for you this month and you won't need to buy anymore)
