Have I done a correct cycle while on Clomid?

First round taking Clomid (50mg) days 3-7. Started my period on the 31st=cycle day 1, took the Clomid on the 2nd - the 6th= cycle days 3-7. Researched about ovulation, results said to take ovulation predictor kits 7-10 days AFTER the last pill. So I took the first ovulation test on the 13th= cycle day 14. It was negative. Continued testing daily and got a postive ovulation test on the 17th= cycle day 18. Had sex every other day the whole week I took the ovulation tests. Doctor wanted blood drawn to check progesterone levels on the 20th= cycle day 21. Now, however, I've read some conflicting research on this and I'm confused and worried. So my question is... did I complete my first Clomid cycle the correct way or did I mess up somewhere???
