Had finally received a second opinion from a new Gyno and got the same results. There is nothing wrong with me. Although I do have a very uncommon case of a "sensitive ovary". I constantly have sharp pains on my right side and it hurt really bad when they did an ultrasound to look at my right ovary. There was nothing there that they could see that should cause this pain and I already had a laprascopic surgery last year, which they found nothing was wrong. Anyone have a problem similar to this?

Anyways, they want to do another sperm count for DH, but we have to wait a week since this week I should be ovulating. Guess we'll see what the upcoming months will bring.

This month I have been temping and will be using OPKs. My estimate is that I will O on the 21st this month so I will test on Feb. 4th. If I get a positive then or soon after I hope I can wait till the 14th to tell my hubby as a Valentines Day surprise

Today is CD 8 and I will start poas for my OPKs on tomorrow!!! I have never used them before, any suggestions???

What type of OPK are you using?

I ask because I used the IC's last cycle and I've read just about everywhere not to use FMU with them and I tested ~1 pm and about ~10 pm every day and never got a true positive - ever for the entire cycle - even though temps showed I ovulated about CD 20. Got Target generic OPKs this cycle, which are virtually identical and their instructions say to use with FMU. I'm now using those with FMU (since CD 2) and think by tomorrow, I'll start using them twice a day - the second one being about 12 hours after the test with the FMU. Starting tomorrow with the second test, even though it will only be CD 11 for me, because I have brief, mid-cycle spotting about a week pre-o and it showed up last night. I test for the whole cycle, because this is only my second with the OPKs and I'm trying to get as much data on my cycles as possible, to help speed this ttc adventure along!

I got the Kroger generic ones. Which I probably won't do again, they are too expensive even for a generic. $15 for 7 tests. Where can I get some accurate cheap ones? I will use these up then get them from somewhere else. I prefer to get them in person and not online.

I started yesterday afternoon testing, it was clearly negative. I am going to use your suggestion and use them twice a day, but only up until I get a positive then I'm going to stop. Hope I can more accurately find out when I O this cycle.

I will be doing 1 test after work around 3 and then another in the evening before bed around 10. Mine say not to use FMU, also how strict do I have to be about the 4 hours of holding it before poas? That is a long time for me!

Ovulation Chart


This is my first month temping, any tips out there? Does my chart look ok so far? It seems to be bouncing around a bit... I take my temp at about the same time every morning 5:30 when my alarm for work goes off. I keep the thermometer on my nightstand so I don't have to move much to get to it and take my temp laying down still in bed. I however do get up almost every morning between 3:30-4:30 to pee. I know this may change my temp a little but I figured since it is pretty consistent that my temps wouldn't be too affected. Do you think that will affect my temps a lot?

Thanks!!

FX that we get our 's this month!!!

Dhbh- what time do you go to bed? If you wake up consistently to pee, maybe set your alarm for 330 and take your temp then, also this month I'm temping vaginally, because orally my chart looked like a yoyo! What a difference vaginally makes! I only have a .4 degree spread, compared to almost 1 degree jumps! It is a pain to do it vaginally at first, but my chart looks so much prettier.

And for those lady's waiting until o to bd, just makes sure you don't go too long without "emptying the tank", I've read it's not good for the sperm quality if they sit too long. I think it was after five days (without ejaculation) they start to die. I was told by my dr. It's best to bd every other day. But I know, sometimes that's difficult to do! She also told me every day is too much, but I've read conflicting arguments for that, but this month we're dtd eod and I'm not going to stress about it!

Thanks for the help!! I'm such a newbie to all this

Usually go to bed around 10-11... I have thought of just temping when I wake up naturally to pee...but that varies sometimes. I may take the advice to set an alarm around 3 then...Is that okay if I am only asleep for about 4-5 hours before temping? If I were to start taking it vaginally should I wait for a new cycle since that would change my temp results? I don't want to mess up my chart too much.
