If you doubt the odk, either try another kit and/or switch to basal body temperature charts. ...Read more

Anovulation: If you do not have a period and have a negative pregnancy test then the most likely reason is that you just did not ovulate in this particular cycle. It would be appropriate to consider repeating the clomid for a new cycle. Good luck. ...Read more

If you began bleeding shortly after a positive ovulation test, it can mean you are having ovulation related bleeding. This isn't a full blown period usually just some spotting. If it was a full blown period, then you had a short cycle. ...Read more
