Good idea with the mucinex! Hopefully it helps

I'm going to say something super unhelpful - basically the month we conceived was after I threw in the towel with TTC, I literally had a minor breakdown the month before and threw away all the OPK's, IC's, Preseed, temping thermometer the whole bit because I was so frustrated. I told DH I didn't want to TTC anymore and he said we can just try and take it easy. Of course a month later we were back at it, even though mentally I was done. So basically I watched the CM, and we only BD'd once every couple days during the fertile window. Other months we always BD'd every day and I'm wondering if DH's sperm count is a little low since it only worked when we cut back. I was also sick, and that kicked my mucous membranes into overdrive (sorry tmi haha), but I had lots of CM.

Basically I had given up so it was more relaxed without the constant stress of TTC, was sick, and we BD'd less frequently.

I know it's not super helpful because it was the month we let everything go - which I always thought was a load, but I think the low stress environment helped.

Sorry for the novel of a response haha

So tonight we BDíd and I bleed a lot. That usually only happens when I am ovulating. So I took another test and still negative. I donít understand what is happening in my body.

If you don’t want to temp and she’ll out ridiculous amounts of money, I suggest getting wondfo packs on amazon. They are super cheap. I’d test 3x a day when I knew I was getting close to O. And I never felt bad because it was like $20 for 29hot and 50 opks or something crazy lol BUT I will say while they did turn blaring positive at the same time as my cvs opk and my cb advanced digital, my cvs opk always detected the beginning of my surge before any other brand

I’m so sorry things are so confusing our bodies like to mess with us when we are ttc. I hope o comes soon and in an obvious way and you catch the egg

Thank you. I got a neg O test this evening. Still spotting a little too. I don’t know what is going on with my cycle. I guess I either missed the surge or didn’t ovulate. But then why the bleeding!? I just had a trans vag ultrasound last month to look for cysts or anything and everything looked normal.

Also I was going to do the prometrium suppositories this month during my luteal phase but feel like it is pointless now. But I don’t know.

KJ no idea hoping you did O. Can you ring your gyn and see what could possibly cause the bleeding midcycle? Hugs
