Okay...today is 16 dpo and af has not shown up yet. I have had many days worth of very minimal dark spotting- starting around 10dpo. I have taken like a gazillion cheap HPT's (from the Dollar Tree) and none have shown one little iota of a second line. I also tried an Answer Early pregnancy test and got nothing. So, I am not thinking I am pregnant, especially since today I am felling a bit crampy.

What I'm wondering is do the drugs, clomid and novarel, increase the length of my luteal phase? How about the fact that I have a cold? Any other reasons that af would be delayed?

I will go for a beta tomorrow if af doesn't show by morning.

Your body can react differently to the meds for sure. Go for the beta just to make sure!

Some people never actually see a
 
with an hpt and require a doctor's blood test. Maybe you should get one done just to be SURE.

Well, AF finally started this morning. I did a little internet research and learned that not only is clomid used to increase egg production- it is also used to treat luteal phase defect. That makes sense and now I know why I was several days late with AF.

On to round three...
