Can someone still take Clomid when they are ovulating and releasing an egg? and does anyone know if there is a blood test to see if a women is actually releasing an egg each month?

I think they are impossible to see, so I don't think they can tell if one has actually released, they can see the sacs in the u/s but not the actual eggs?? I think they can predict that if they are going to release it will happen in the time that they give you the hsg shot??? but I am not sure let me know if you hear otherwise, thanks Cheryl

Hi Marymo! There is a blood test (sometimes called the day 21 test) that checks progesterone levels after ovulation. That result tells drs with some degree of certainty if the woman did indeed O that cycle. Drs usually look for a value of 10 or above to signal O, though lab values vary. HTH!!! Good luck!

yes you can still take it if you are ovulating and releasing an egg. i don't think if you are ovulating normally you should, but like mine i ovulated most of the time but it was way late in my cycle like day 26 and then my second phase would only be 11 days. but i had a couple months when i did not ovulate so i was put on clomid. and i agree with Mega on the progesterone, but when you are on clomid i think it shoud be above 20....
are you on clomid or going to be?

Yeah that's right tk, on drugs like Clomid
dr's do prefer it to be above 10. My clinic
prefered 15 & above but on clomid mine
was mainly around 10 to 12 I believe & my dr wasn't worried, he thought I was
still responding pretty well to the Clomid.
