Hello, : Hello, here are just some basics. Some may be easier that others with irregular periods. When you are not ovulating, you might not notice any cervical mucous or if noted it might be scant and creamy. As your ovulation approaches it will become more watery and there will be more of it. You may find that your sex drive increase within a day or two of your ovulation. Some women note tenderness of their breasts before or after ovulation. May women track their basal body temperature when they want to become pregnant. Right after the egg is released the temperature can rise by a few tenths of a degree. You can down load ovulation charts from the internet that will help you with tracking this. A very simple approach would be an ovulation predictor kit which your would use once a day for the week before you anticipate ovulating. Good luck.

Dr : Dr fowler gave a good list of symptoms. Some women get cramping around the time of ovulation, especially as you may release more than one egg with clomid (clomiphene), (clomiphene) and bloating after youovulate is fairly common. The Clomid (clomiphene) should make you more regular (or pregnant), so if you use an ovulation predictor kit (opk) it is best to start on day 10, test every day between 10 am and noon - it's not so accurate if you test first thing in the morning. Day 1 is the first day of your period. If you are not getting a positive test by day 18 talk to the dr's office that is prescribing you clomid (clomiphene). Basal body temperatures (bbt) work but are a lot of effort - BBT needs to be checked first thing in the morning before you move or get out of bed, and you need a thermometer sensitive to 0.1 degrees f. If you haven't been tested for why your cycles are irregular, or if you're under 35 and don't get pregnant in the first 3 - 4 months of clomid (clomiphene), (clomiphene) see a fertility specialist (reproductive endocrinology/ infertility md). If you're still irregular on clomid (clomiphene), (clomiphene) or 35 or over with irregular cycles see a specialist sooner. Best wishes.
