I have PCOS and I have been mostly NTNP for around 3-4 years. The only thing we changed about ourselves was to stop using contraception. I knew my cycles were wonky (especially after coming off of BCP, which had me bleeding all month at first). This was in 2014. I hadn't changed anything else: was still cycling between healthy eating, fad diets, and unhealthy eating periods; didn't track my cycle or temps; and I didn't try to heal my body.

I wish that it was more simple for me. I looked around at all the people who accidentally got pregnant and I realized just how jealous I was. All of my aunts and my mother were very fertile, each having about 5 kids, and I have multiple twin sets in my family. I would see pregnant women in stores and babies in stores, and always looked in awe, thinking "When will that be me?" It never happened; not even one pregnancy this whole time.

I finally had enough at the beginning of this cycle. I am not the most keen on medical intervention, but I set a deadline for myself. If I'm not pregnant by the end of 2018, then I would go see a fertility specialist. So, I am forcing myself to finally make the change to eat raw and organic, to cut out any offending foods, and to switch my routine to one using as little chemicals as possible. I am starting a slow, balanced exercise regimen and drinking a daily tea and smoothie. There is much more to what I am starting than that, but those are the biggest changes.

To me, this has become a pretty big time and money commitment. I had both, but I never put in the effort. Maybe it's the push I needed to get it on track, but I can't help but look at all those who conceive much easier or on accident and think, "Why can't it be that easy for me?" I know it sounds selfish, and I should be grateful at what I DO have, but sometimes it is hard and I have to vent. I have been mostly positive this cycle, but after 2 attempts to gear up to ovulation this cycle, I'm a little down.

Wishing all the best to you ladies, I hope you get what you are after.

Hi all,

I'm new on here and have tons of questions since i'm TTC #1. This forum is super cool & helpful hearing you ladies speak out and providing me with answers that I was also curious about.

My story is...I'm irregular with 31 days cycle, I think (this is the common days this past year). This month, I ovd twice,is that normal?? yesterday & today is my second ovulation days. This is the first time that has ever happened to me getting EWCM twice in a MS and it's heavier than my first ovulation days and I'm super wet feeling (sorry!! TMI..).

Today is my CD23, my AF should be next week. no symptoms yet except that I feel sluggish, light headed and can't think straight at work but only noticed it today. I take iron pins (Metformin I think) so I'm not sure what else can it be.

Anyone going or gone through what I'm going thru??

Thanks..

Hi guys Im New to this and I have nobody to talk to because I havenít really got any friends but I was wondering is it too late for me or do I still have chance to be pregnant? my af is due tomorrow but at 10 dpo (2 days ago) I had a false positive (I think) because ever since that positive Iíve been getting negatives I have very regular cycles (35) and I have so many symptoms I just feel pregnant its weird but my instinct is telling me I am. But the negatives are just making me feel so anxious and depressed considering I had a false positive the other day it was a sainsburys test so I heard theyíre not reliable Xx

Hello to all, I am new and following. I'm currently TTC #2 and having a hard time. I have not tried using OPK's or Temping at all. My first just happened we weren't planning or anything. Our son is 5 years old and ready for our second. Any suggestions as far as tips to get accurate O days?
Im on CD 35 today and my cycles vary from 35-40 days. Im afraid Im already out this cycle.

hiya ladies,

Hope ya don't mind me joining, i've been a user for years now but had a few years break as I had friends come and go over and over again and here I still am. I'm 27 have pco, but I'm petite. my hormones are all normal other than anaemia is 0.1 higher then normal rage and white blood cells 0.1 lower then normal range, doctor said no concern. Ive been LTTTC 7+ Years for #2. I'm also having a hard time. several positive hpts before af due date then few days later id came on full force, Since having my DD in 2010. i've tried clomid, for 2 cycles but really delayed ov and I didn't conceive on either of these months while taking clomid. I also spent fortunes on things like Clearblue monitors and opk kits, sperm friendly lubes (although I have no dramas with cervical mucus), soft cups, vitamins and so much more. I want to conceive naturally so I don't intend on having iui or ivf. I'm now using maca root! for the first cycle ever, started cd4 due to blood tests that day and maca balences hormones so started after that as I wanted the results not to be affected, I'm now dpo10 and still taking the maca. i'll keep all updated and Good luck to all. xxx

marie I use fertility friend? there good for charting and temping! I temp vaginally as it is more accurate then oral but I no some can be squeamish about things like that and I also use a 2.decimal thermometer is more accurate too. I temp every morning same time if possible and also use opks (ovulation tests) occasionally, as FF (fertility friend) pretty much will confirm ov (ovulation) most cycles as long as I temp daily leading up to ov and 3-4 days after. xx
