Terminology: Ovulation refers to the release of an oocyte (egg, ) usually around the mid-cycle, from a woman's ovary. Anovulation simply means the absence of ovulation, or not ovulating.

I am always having very wet and watery mucus around ovulation time, but this month was very dry and no mucus , is it anovulation cycle?
I've done blood test and it shows that I have anovulation. I was prescribed with Clomid (clomiphene) to help me ovulate for 3 cycles. Is Clomid (clomiphene) safe for long term?
Yes but with limits: Clomid (clomiphene) is not a medication you will be taking long term. You only take it for 5 days during a month typically. Having said that, it has been around a long time and there is no data to suggest it is not safe. There are no definite long term risks. There is no absolute number but if it hasn't worked for you after 6-8 cycles then it's time to move on to a different treatment. ...Read more

My fsh/lh hormone is anovulation.. and my doctor is putting me on progesterone... is that a good thing to get me OVULATING???
Won't help ovulation: Progesterone can be used to make you have 'withdrawal bleeding' so that you shed the lining of your uterus, to prevent a thick lining or pre-cancerous changes in the lining. Progesterone won't help you to ovulate (release an egg) - if you're trying to conceive with irregular periods or no periods, see a fertility specialist for help. ...Read more

See details: You say you have never been late. Make sure your menses are regular i.e. first day to first day is the same each cycle. If you are, it would require testing to determine why. Check with your doctor to see if he performed any tests other than checking for ovulation. By the way, what was your lack of ovulation based on? A mid-luteal progesterone? ...Read more
Spotting day 10/11, + OPK day 17/18, spotting day 19/20/21, BBT temp still not risen. Ovulated yet? What's happening? Not experienced annovulation
Maybe: Best test for ovulation is a blood Progesterone level of > 3 ng/ml. Other than pregnancy (which is proof positive) the other tests are less specific. I think that bbts are kinda cruel so rarely suggest that my patients do them. Opks have been shown to only increase patient anxiety and not improve chance of pregnancy. So for patients with regular cycles i suggest sex on cyclec days 10/12/14/16. ...Read more
