Hello Ladies, I’m hoping someone can help me, I was supposed to get my period yesterday (June 20th) as of now I haven’t gotten it. I have been ttc for over a year but on Clomid for the past 2 months. This past month I started Clomid a day late I was to start Clomid on day three on my cycle but I didn’t make it to the pharmacy so I started it on day 4. Could this be why my period is late?? Any comments would be helpful….Thanks a bunch!!

Hi Heather, maybe because you took it a day late, your cycle is delayed by a day? I don't know for sure...its just an idea. Hopefully I'm wrong and you are pg! Good luck!!

Are you charting your basal body temps? If so, are they still up, or have they dropped? If they are still up that is a good sign, although it still may be nothing. I really hope you are pg and you may very well be, but try not to get your hopes up so high you are crushed if you are not. I have switched to Femara after two cycles of Clomid, but last month on Femara I was two days late, which I NEVER am, and I really got my hopes up. The second day I tested and was convinced the test was wrong when it was negative as I knew that I was never that late. The next day my temperatures dropped and af came.

Drew---that's what I’m thinking---------ktl---I have been charting my bbt and it is so out of whack, I'm charting it because my obgyn is making me, but I don't trust it! everyday is different, one day it's way up and the next day it's right back low again there is no pattern and I hate taking it I feel that it is such a waste of time. Thursday I have a follow up apt with my fertility doctor and if I haven't gotten my period by then, then I will obviously ask for a blood test. I'm scared to take a hpt, because if it’s negative I don't know if I’ll believe it, and I’ll want to test again and again, so I think I should wait to see the doctor.
I wonder what else could be causing my period to be late, it's after 9pm (my time) and still no's almost 2 days late, and I’m going crazy! Any other comments would be helpful.

I'm now 2 days late, could this still be because I started clomid 1 day late? Has this happened to anyone else?


Drew - June 22

Hi Heather, are your periods usually on time? From the research I've done you should have a period about 3 weeks after you took the last pill. If it is 2days late you should be able to do a hpt by now. :)

Hi Drew, No my periods are not regular, by that I mean extremely irregular, last year I had 2 periods in the whole year. I've been on Clomid for 2 cycles and before that I was on Provera and while on these medication by period has been bang-on. So I’m thinking I should take a hpt?? Any other suggestions or ideas who be most appreciated. Thanks again Drew.

I'm late 3 days now...I took a hpt this morning and it was negative (I’m convinced that they don't work (LOL)). Should I still be hopeful?? I should be getting a positive reading by now.... shouldn’t I?? PLEASE HELP!!!

Heather, when I was pg with my daughter hpt's never showed up till late in the third month. If you really feel that you are request a blood test. I too am convinced those things never work...its a consipracy.... lol! Any way, good luck!!
