No O...What else is new

I went in for my Clomid check today and my Dr said it looks like I did not O this cycle. She did a pelvic exam and felt my ovaries and said they felt good. So here is our plan for this cycle

*I have to wait a week and take one more HPT "just in case".
*Start Provera again.
*Take 100mg Clomid CD3-7 (instead of the 50mg we did this cycle)
*CD10 go in for an ultrasound to check on follicular growth (hopefully I'll have some nice size follies)
*If I have good sized follies we get to do a Trigger Shot!! (Let's hope this happens)Which Mike will have to give me in the ass. (note to self, try not to piss off Mike)
*Do another progesterone blood draw on CD21 to confirm ovulation.
*Clomid/cycle check on CD25.

I will be busy this cycle!

She said she will only go up to either 150mg or 200mg Clomid (which I think is a normal cutoff anyways) And if the Clomid + Trigger still doesn't get me to O, She will refer me to an RE (which is right down the hall from her) So that way we can do injectibles to hopefully O. If I do O from the Clomid + Trigger or Clomid alone, we'll try a few cycles of that and then move on to IUI which she will do.

I feel like we are moving in the right direction. Today was kinda bittersweet. I was bummed the Clomid didn't get me to O this cycle and we could have had a Thanksgiving/Christmas baby announcement...but I'm also happy we're just moving right along in the process.

Aww, I was hoping to see good results. My round of clomid didn't work either: progesteron was 8.3 which is lower than it was without it, lol.

Here's to next cycle with 100mg! I'm taking them on days 5-9 though, I wonder what the difference in the days is???

I am also taking it on days 5-9. My progesterone after last cycle was only 1.15 so I def didn't O. Now I am back on the provera to try again. Hopefully the clomid + the trigger will work for you. I wish my dr would do as much as yours. I just do the progesterone check on CD24 and that is it, no other monitoring.
