Is intercourse the day of ovulation spotting too late to conceive. Actively trying?

Is intercourse the day of ovulation spotting too late to conceive. Actively trying?

Trying to conceive: Hmmm . . . Not sure i understand your phrasing. Ovulation occurs 2wks prior to menses. So in actuality, you shouldn't "spot" when ovulating. Otoh you can "spot" when your egg implants. Sperm lasts a few days inside you. Egg obviously does, too. That's why there's a window of time from a few days before to a few days after ovulation for you to get pregnant from sex. Just try to have fun, not work. ...Read more

2nd cycle on Clomid (clomiphene) + timed intercourse. Ovulation detected w/ OPKs and blood tests. Can I ask RE for u/s monitored cycles in future to ease my mind?

2nd cycle on Clomid (clomiphene) + timed intercourse. Ovulation detected w/ OPKs and blood tests. Can I ask RE for u/s monitored cycles in future to ease my mind?

Yes: Many RE specialists will have you get a mid cycle ultrasound to look at follicle size and number. Obviously that's a more expensive way of doing things and probably doesn't need to be started until you've had 3 or so successful OPKs on the clomid, (clomiphene) but you certainly can request it. ...Read more

Does ovaluation kit helps in determining ovaluation day when on clomid (clomiphene)?

Yes: Yes - you can use an ovulation predictor kit (opk) - test between 10 am and noon, starting on day 10 of your cycle. The first morning urine is not accurate.

If cycles are still irregular with Clomid (clomiphene) see a rei specialist. ...Read more
