I completely understand what you are going through. We have been trying for 6 months and each month when I have to tell my hubby that we aren't pregnant, it breaks my heart. I have had several months where my period was crazy late and I really thought I was pregnant. It's like my body is playing tricks on me because every little thing that could be a symptom makes me suspicious. I'm currently in my two week wait and dying to test. I'm on CD28 of a 31-32 day cycle. I feel like I might be pregnant, but I'm pretty sure that means I'm not. Good luck and keep us posted on what happens next month.View Thread
Did the Clomid work for you??? I used Clomid with my first child because I wasn't ovulating. It worked in the first month! Now we are TTC again and I'm thinking of going back to Clomid. We've been TTC for 6 months and I am not getting a positive OPK. I'm thinking I'm probably not ovulating, but I was hoping it would just happen this time...View Thread
I am in the same boat! I also had a surprise pregnancy in '09 so I though TTC the next one would be a piece of cake. I've been using the OPKs and I feel like they are making life more confusing and making me obsess more. I've been trying for 6 months now and no luck. My cycles range from 28-35 days, so I just BD from day 10-24 as much as possible because I never know what the cycle will be.
Good luck! Keep me posted on whether the vitex supplements help you regulate. I'd be willing to try that.View Thread
I was touched by your story and you are right, we cannot lose hope. I have tried the sticks and I don't seem to ever get a positive one. I've been using the expensive clear blue ones, but maybe need to try the dollar ones. I often find that stuff at the dollar store is better than the expensive anyways! Thanks for the tip!
Hi all! Me and my DH have been TTC for 6 months now. I ve been charting my bbt, but decided to try an OPK. Last month, I tested 20 times (used the whole box of clear blue easy sticks!!) and even though my BBT showed what I thought was a spike at ovulation, I never got a positive on the OPK! These are supposed to be super sensitive, so now I'm worried that I have been trying all this time and not ovulating after all! I used the OPK at all different times of the day because I know that can have an effect on the test. I decided to chalk it up to a fluke and try the OPK again this month. Still no positives! Is it possible that I don't have enough LH? Do these just not work for some people? I'm wondering if anyone else has had this happen? If I don't get any positives again this month, I'm going to schedule a check up at the doctor, but any answers in the meantime would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!View Thread
