When to BD?! - Am I doing this right?!

Cd4 for me today , 3rd round of clomid 50mg. 2 BFN's and a niggling question of "When is it the right time to BD - and am I hitting the right days...am I doing this right?"
Before I started on Clomid I never had regular cycles, I can't pinpoint the exact day I ovulate and I just want to make sure I'm doing all that I can..

So, back to basics here, my first round with taking clomid 50mg cycle was 28 days... BD'd cd 10, 12 , 14 and 15. BFN
2nd round was 31 days...BD'd every day from cd 8 to 16. BFN

Some people say to 'go at it like rabbits'... others say 'the boys need time to rest'...so every other day...

My consultant at clinic never told me .. and I know this might sound very dim of me to a lot of you, sorry.

I've never been pg before and just wanting the niggling question to be a little less niggly :P

Any comments more than welcome :yes:

Definitely every other day, not every day - but are you not being tracked? Your consultant will give you a much clearer idea of ovulation time, so you maximise your chances. Have you had your day 21 results back from your first two cycles?

I agree - ever other day during the week or so around ovulation. If you're not sure when this is then I'd go for around day 8 to day 18 to cover all bases. There isn't a 'magic' day so don't worry about that. Like Eeyore says you really need to know though whether the clomid is helping you ovulate. If you're not then the timings become irrelevant.

ttc since July 06. 8 cycles of clomid. BFP on cycle 5 (Dec 07) ended in m/c at 9.5 weeks. Second BFP on cycle 8 (May 08)

Thankyou, much appreciated!

Eeyore - I was only tracked for my first round at 50mg - I 'appeared to have ovulated' between cd 13 and 16 (transvaginal ultrsound on cd 13 (follies ready to go) and cd 16 (follies no longer)) and my cd21 progesterone came back at 70. I had a cd24 progesterone too which came back at 60.

Bubble - I was told that I responded well to the doseage given, so to carry on at the same dose .. given 2 more lots of tablets .. and a follow up appt was given for 30/12/09. I think I'm going to use your 8 - 18 every other day method for this round. :D

By the 30th Dec it will be too early to know if i'm lucky enough to be pg "3rd time lucky" but I will be asking her the same question.
There was no mention of being tracked for any of the following months based on the outcome of the 1st month.

Hiya,

I'm with bubble on the 8 - 18. I bd'd as soon as AF stopped until it reappeared again, every other day!
