No ovulation this month :-(


I am usually blessed with a really regular cycle of ovulating day 13 or 14 and AF day 28 or 29. I am using a CBFM and I'm really suprised and worried that there is no sign of ovulating this month (I'm on day 19). I'm gutted that this may mean the start of problems and making it even more difficult to conceive.

Even though we haven't conceived yet I always took heart that at least my cycle was good. Now I don't even have that. I'm about to turn 38, so time isn't on our side either.

Sorry for the moan. I just feel all at sea at the moment.

why do you think you have not ovulated this cycle? do you temp? CBFM cant tell you whether you have ovulated, it can only detect your LH surge by giving you peak. if you have not got peak it does not necessarily mean you did not have LH surge, it's just CBFM did not manage to detect it (this happens a lot! and people get pregnant without getting peaks). if you are worried you can ask for progesterone blood test to confirm ovulation.

Thanks Briss. I didn't know that about CBFM and to be honest I'm still not sure I entirely understand what you mean. Is it that the monitor could have missed the LH surge because it happened during the day, not when I do the test in the morning?

I do not really know why this happens, it happened to me twice, i kept getting HIGHs from CD6 onwards and no PEAK but FF still managed to detect ovulation based on temp shift. It is possible that LH surge is too short or may be it is below the level CBFM is used to, really hard to say I just know it happens. Also a few ladies called CBFM helpline and were told that the problem is with them not their CBFM, but I do not think this is true as I do know a few ladies on B&B who never got peak but got their BFPs

Yes i have read of lots of women getting pregnant on a cycle they didnt get a 'peak' on their monitor, only high readings.
