    Yes it's best to wean off stuff but you're likely in the process of adjusting now. I'd just stay the course, your body will want to fix stuff and so over time it will. Just that sometimes it takes a cycle or two (especially after having had the IUD for several years, that alone can make for some goofy cycles). Keep me posted and let me know how it's going.

    So I ended up with the flu during O week. My OPK didnít peak until CD22. I didnít get my 21 day blood draw because I was sick. The closest to O that I managed to BD was four days before O. I started spotting at 11 dpo, and I thought I might actually be pregnant, but then my AF came at 13 dpo, which means my luteal phase was shorter than usual. Is this common with Clomid? Or did I miss my peak earlier? My OPK wasnít dark at all before, so i donít see how I could have.

    13 DPO is a normal luteal phase. That is nothing to worry about. Even with spotting starting at 11 DPO, that is no big deal at all

    But YES you absolutely CAN have false negative OPK and so you can miss the peak, only getting a positive later on. You could have had your first peak a day or two sooner, just not had enough concentration of hormone in your urine for the test to register, but in your blood****** it was concentrated enough to trigger ovulation. YOu could have ovulated before you even got a positive on the test. All the tests pick up is hormone at a certain concentration in your urine, NOT whether or not you've ovulated yet.

    Clomid for most people lengthens their LP. A few people, particualrly those who are not eating enough fat, can develop a shorter LP on Cloimd and the solution to that problem is being sure you are eating enough fat (50-60 g) and adding a serving of full fat dairy every day, and 4-6 eggs a week. Some people also add in a serving of salmon or red meat.

    But I don't think you need to do that with a 13 day LP!

    Iíve been eating mostly vegetarian with my fat sources coming from butter, olive oil and cheese mostly. I guess Iím just used to my 15 day LP. My doctor wants me to do another round of Clomid, so Iíll start that today.
