    Because you can only take it 6 months (if that long, many docs will only allow 3/4) in a row before you have to stop using it. This is because if you take it many months in a row you will end up temporarily infertile. So taking it and not trying is wasting a month of time you could have been trying to conceive and gets you one month closer to the time when you can no longer use it. It's like burning up $100 hoping that you may get $125 the next month.

    I prefer 50 mg but some people have taken 25. Totally up to you.

I take mine before bed and have never had any side effects with 50 mg. The smaller the dose, the less side effects. Other side effects for your fertility include reduced cervical mucus (I still had plenty), and thinning your uterus lining (which is bad for conception, but you would not notice this unless you do ultrasounds). The thinning of your uterine lining is one of the reasons that you should not take Clomid for more than 4 - 6 months in a row. If your lining gets too thin, you can't get pregnant. Another side effect is that Clomid usually lengthens your luteal phase, which is good for getting pregnant, but can lead to hard disappointment if your period is late but you're not pregnant it's just because the Clomid made your lp longer, so keep that in mind.
    there are also some rarer but serious side effects like cysts, allergic reactions, vision changes, and so on. Those things would mean you couldn't take Clomid any more.

    I'm pretty sure I O'd!! I had another high bbt this morning, and I was a bit suspicious of it, because I had spontaneously woken up about twenty minutes before I was supposed to get up, so i temped after laying in bed awake for twenty minutes, but I'm feeling pretty confident now because on my way to work I had a fit of "progesterage" -- the tendency to anger I get when my progesterone is high. It's pretty ridiculous. Nothing bad or annoying happened to me today, I was just recalling past incidences of when people "did me wrong" and getting myself all worked up and cussing out the offenders in my head.

    So I think I have about a 1/5 chance of being pregnant now.

    Progesterage haha yes I'm very familiar with that. I try and try to explain to my husband "no I get PMS for about a week after I ovulate, has nothing to do with my period, if anything getting my period is a relief!" But men think "eh she's on the rag" or whatever. :/

    Uninteresting update: I'm 9 DPO. My gut feeling is that I'm not pregnant this cycle, but if I have at least a 10 day luteal phase I'll be happy. Last time I only had an 8 day luteal phase. If I don't see AF by 13 DPO which is Monday, I'll POAS.

    12 DPO and no AF yet!!

    Pre-pregnancy I'd always get AF 12 DPO, sometimes morning, sometimes evening.

    I'm trying not to let myself get too excited because AF isn't "late" until tomorrow morning. Also, the Clomid I took could have just made my luteal phase longer, since I don't know how Clomid affects my luteal phase since the two other times I used it I either got pregnant or had an 8 day luteal phase (when used shortly post partum).

    Intuitively, I do not feel pregnant at all. When I was this far along the time I was pregnant, I already had felt implantation, was having itchiness, light headedness, and uterine cramping after orgasm. I have none of that now, and feel great and clear headed.
