I have heard other women say that they do, but I would get the OPK's and start taking them on day 4 through until you get a positive result. My Dr. gave me dip sticks but I was having a heck of a time reading the lines, there was always 2 with one fainter & it was too hard for me. I got the Clearblue that has a smiley face when it's positive and a blank circle when it's not. Then you will know for sure when you are ovulating and you can make sure you are having sex when you need to. Hope it happens soon for you!View Thread
I had this same question since we have been ttc for over 4 years. I think it's natural as a women to worry that maybe we are causing it in some way. My Dr. told me not to worry, that there are women out there all the time who drink and smoke (and sadly even worse) for months before they realize they are pregnant. I found this article, hopefully it will be helpful! http://www.babycentre.co.uk/a7170/how-to-get-your-body-ready-for-a-babyView Thread
I totally know where you are coming from, it is SO frustrating! We were TTC for almost 3 years and the Dr.'s kept telling us that they didn't know why. My tests were normal, his count was great, we don't smoke or drink, we live a healthy lifestyle. Then about a year ago I switched to a different OB and on the first visit he diagnosed me with PCOS. I guess I'm not the textbook PCOS patient. I luckily don't have a lot of the symptoms on the outside. We have now been on clomid & doing IUI's for the last year. We are going to take a break as well in September and start again in January. Have you looked into getting a fresh perspective from a different Dr?View Thread
