Hi all, I am new to the site! My DH and I have been TTC since August 2012. I am 32 DH is 35. I have had an HSG, FSH and progesterone levels done. FSH was great, HSG was great, progesterone on cd16 was 5.8 and on cd21 was 1.2. Are these levels normal? I have tried using the ovulation sticks and some work better than others, but have not really got the "dark" line. I do believe I ovulate, however it is difficult for me to know exactly when because my cycles are 22, 24, 26 or 28 days long. Most being between 22-25 days. Also, when is the time to actually "do the deed"? When the stick has a "dark" line making the ovulation stick positive or before this happens? I am trying to learn about TTC as much as possible! Please share with me any advice, I will be so grateful!! Thank so much!

Kate - I used to have heavy periods and bad cramping, but I thought it was normal!! Ironically the past few years, my periods have gotten lighter, but then I started getting random pelvic pains (not associated with periods) - I thought I was just having stomach aches. Then in early 2011, the pain got really bad until I started getting it every day. I finally had an intravaginal ultrasound, where they saw endometriomas on my ovaries. I then had a laparoscopy to diagnose endo - a lap is really the only way to formally diagnose it because it's hard to tell otherwise apparently. Maybe go speak to your GP if you're worried - but please remember that some people just take longer to conceive so don't panic yet, and some people have painful periods and don't have endo! good luck to you

Hi Marti - I'm not sure what units you've been given for your progesterone (for example, the UK and the US use completely different units of measurement for this!) so it's hard to say. To check if you've ovulated, it's important that they check progesterone about 7 days after you ovulate, so CD16 and CD21 might not be the right times? I'd recommend charting your basal temperature (google it for more info). When your ovulation stick test is as dark or darker than the control line, then you MIGHT ovulate the next day or 2, so that's the best time to BD (as well as the few days before that happens plus the next 2 days for good luck

Morning Girls!

Galaxy yay for Slimming World for you then – my friend is doing it and has already lost over a stone! I think being allowed the naughty things occasionally defo makes a difference. Hope all goes well for you on Monday!

Marti what Goldfish has said is exactly what I was going to say!! For your prog level to be measured right your blood test needs to be done a week before your period and I’d defo suggest temping and also charting your CM – when you start to see EWCM, that’s a good sign to be DTD Fertility Friend is a great way to chart both temps and CM and they email you lessons explaining it all so that it makes sense. Also it’s cheaper than OPKs as all you need to buy is a basal thermometer. Hope that helps

Goldfish really hope all goes well on Monday for you! Am keeping everything crossed that things really start moving and happening for you after your apt

Well it’s Friday again WOO HOO so hope everyone has lovely weekends!

xxx

I actually asked my dr about this yesterday as I was worried because I get painful periods. Her answer was painful periods does not mean something is wrong. She asked if I was doubled up in pain that I couldnt do anything or if I was being sick because of the pain my answer to both no. She also said the pain shouldnt last any longer than 2 days which for me it doesnt. So I certainly came away feeling reassured I am 'normal' lol. I guess I will just have to keep an eye on myself and If I discover any changes to contact GP :shurg: ?

Also saw the Dr yesterday and she has told me Im not allowed to track anything from my next cycle and just DTD as and when I can through the summer and if im not pregnant by then to go back and she will run some tests So I am certainly feeling much more positive!

Scarlett - nice to hear from you, hope you and bub are well.

I got bad news at my ivf appt on Monday...found out I have low AMH levels so probably have low ovarian reserve. The dr was nice enough to fast track things for me so instead of waiting till the next cycle, I can start downregulating in this cycle when I reach CD21, which happens to be next week! So the odds are not in my favour but I will give it a go as its unlikely I will conceive naturally between my crap egg reserve, endo and blocked tube!

Good news was that I have put on 2.5 kg!!! Something positive at least, it's been a huge effort to put this weight on and I intend to put on a couple more kg!

Galaxy - well done on your weight loss!!

I'm not sure how active I will be on this thread now, just feel a bit overwhelmed at the thought of doing IVF. I will be updating my journal if anyone is interested in following though!

Hellooooooooooooo!

And sorry for the delay, been rather hectic as I've just moved home

GG: WOW congrats to you that's brilliant news...all round what with what the Dr said to. I hope that you have an update on your hip by now. And of course that BFP ASAP!!

Goldfish: I'm so sorry about your news, but I'm so pleased to hear that things are finally happening for you! I hope you're not feeling too poorly on the drugs and that your BFP is just around the corner. Would defo follow your journey as I've got everything crossed for you!! Where is it?

Lots and lots of dust: to you both

xxxx
