Thank you! Good luck to you, too. I hope this is your month
Sometimes when af is being stubborn if hubby and I dtd she will show up that night! I think maybe the muscle spasms help move things along when it's so close. Not sure but maybe worth a try!
Oh, maybe! I haven't used opks yet. Am thinking we will just give it a blind try a few monthsnd see what happens. I was on bc for 19 years and have been off now 8 months. I've been using natural progesterone cream to regulate my cycles and I think it has really helped with that and with reducing PMS symptoms and pain from my endometriosis! Hoping it helps with TTC, too.
19yrs? What kind of BC were you on? My sister was on the shot for 5yrs and pills for about 2yrs before that. Her and her (now ex) hubby were trying for two years with no success. I'm not sure how much help her doctor was or how she went about TTC other than opks. I've never been on BC a day of my life I've always used charting, after my daughter was born my cycles were so irregular I started using opks as a back up. Now this month ill be trying to track my temperatures. Hope I don't mess it up
Oops, sorry that was a slight typo...been on bc for 14 years, since I was 18. I've been on different pill forms. I have taken a break here and there 3-6 months at a time and had some cysts on my ovaries so my gyno did some tests and intra-vag ultrasounds and she said I am O'ing (or was when she was doing the tests) so fingers crossed the pill has not messed me up! Good luck with the temping! I may try it just to see if I can figure it out. My body is usually pretty good about telling me when I'm O'ing but wouldn't hurt to have a back up indicator
Any signs of af?
That's good to know that you're still o'ing I've always been really good at listening to my body and could tell when I was o'ing. My daughter turns 20months tomorrow. And ever since having her my cycles have varied from 35-45days. Then they were averaging 35days. Last months cycle was 30 days. Then my body didn't ovulate the first time it should've. I'm nervous my body is too wacky to successfully TTC as quickly and my first two.
No sign of AF yet. We may tonight to try and hurry the witch along, lol.
Yes, I was happy to hear that, too. I don't think I O'd last month because I was working too much and eating & sleeping too little. I never had cm or a raised cp last month and I always do other months. I forgot to use the progesterone cream last month, too. Hoping I don't stress myself out now that we've decided to try! I want to enjoy the time spent bding
That's good that you have kept track of your cycles & know what to expect. I haven't always done that since I've been on bc so long. Not sure what to really watch for with temping but I've read some other posts so I think I get the idea. Temp combined with cm & cp should help me figure it out if I decide to go that route. Still haven't decided if I'm gonna just give it a few months and enjoy trial and error or just get right down to strict business lol My gyno I have now is a rude older man but the only gyn within 40 miles so knows I don't have much choice and is no help to me regarding planning info
Hopefully af arrives soon for you so you can get to the trying part!
