Hello Ladies, Hope everyone is well. Congrats to the ones that's recently gotten BFP's- that's just wonderful news! I have a question that I hope you all don't think is silly, but I don't know who else to ask about it *rolls eyes* DF & I have been TTC since July, I started out taking my temp each morning as well as doing the at home OPK's but have recently stopped using the OPK's because they were just getting too expensive and my cycles were 100% regular, so I knew when I was ovulating. However- this past cycle (for Oct) I have still not ovulated, and I'm on cycle day 33. I used to O around CD 14-15, with AF showing up around CD 28-29 at the latest. I've been charting my temps & other signs on Fertility Friend, but it has yet to say I've ovulated. Normally I know when I O, due to bad cramping (I know my body that well, LOL) and until last Thursday I haven't had any cramping. My AF was due last Tuesday, so I'm now 5 days late, and I've taken two PG tests, with both being BFN's. I'm almost certain I haven't O'd yet, even though I had bad cramping a few days ago.... My question is: Are you all aware of anything I can do that can jump-start my ovulation? My body is in hormonal over-drive, and I just want to either O and get KU or get AF so I can feel better and move on to the next cycle!!!!! This is the first cycle since July I haven't O'd and it's driving me nuts!!! Thanks for any advice or info you may be able to give me; hope this wasn't too silly! LOL ~WhitneyView Thread
Thank you for your information. Right now, I don't really think there's a problem, because my previous cycles have been very regular. I'm thinking maybe I didn't O due to more stress than usual (just moved within the past month). I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced the same thing. I'm now on CD 35 and about to go nuts! My body feels like I'm going to start AF (cramping, irritability, sore breasts) but so far- nothing. Grrr--- being a woman can be so frustrating sometimes! I wish you luck and thanks again!View Thread
Hi there, I found your post really interesting because like you, my DF and I have also been TTC since July of this year, but no luck yet. We're to the point now that we're starting to get discouraged but trying to not get to the point that we're "giving up". As far as the lube question goes- I honestly have NO idea, but I wish you tons of luck. It seems we're in the same boat View Thread
