i'm curious, have any of you tried the FAM detector in FF, instead of Advanced? i'm currently on Advanced, and it puts my ovulation at cd12 when i changed to FAM, it put my O at cd15! if that's the case, then we completely missed my O.

i tended to believe the Advanced setting because of EWCM. but i only used opks on cds 9-13 as well, all negative. so if i indeed ovulated on cd15, i'm guessing the positive opk would've been on cd14.

BellaRosa - congrats on your + OPK! I hope you catch your egg!

Moonstar - It's been years since I used FF as I stopped temping etc after my second MC. I remember their automatic setting always worked best for me.

The SMEP plan does state that if you do not get a + OPK you should continue to BD every other day until AF. This is to cover your bases. Also keep in mind that every year, just like the tides, we have a longest cycle and shortest cycle. This means that ovulation can vary by almost an entire week which you will notice the longer you track your cycles. Before my DD my shortest cycle gave me a +OPK on CD 11 and the longest was CD 17.

However, even if you did ovulate on CD 15, you still BD'd the day before so you should be covered. Sperm can live for 3 days.

AFM - I believe I ovulated Sat. We BD Wed, then I got my +OPK Thurs morning so we BD Thurs, Fri, Sat and rested yesterday. I don't know that we will have time today as my DH leaves for work as soon as I get home and I expect him to have a long night. Either way I am not worried about missing today.

I will probably just wait for AF which will come on the 10th or 11th but if I test early I'll let you know.

I did last month. Even though I was convinced I O'd on CD12, FF didn't give me my crosshairs until around CD 17 or so. I was kinda freaking about it and played with FAM to see if it would give me crosshairs (it didn't). I finally put in CD 12 manually as my O date, but a few days later switched back to advanced. Lo & behild - crosshairs in CD 12.

So, for now, I'm sticking with advanced. Not sure if that helped, but that's my only experience with it!

Thank you! Hope you caught yours! That last "one more try" day is probably the least important try, so I wouldn't worry too much about it. GL to you!!!

AFM, no O yet according to my chart. We will see! Hope my temp goes up tomorrow! Not sure yet when I'm testing... Either around 10 DPO or I'll just wait til AF is due (July 15). Never can decide whether to wait the full time or not. Not sure I'd want to know if I had a chemical. But I did get my BFP at 10 DPO with my DD. oh well. I have at least 10 days til testing

Sooooo I still don't have a raise in temperature. Really down & anxious about it! I don't want to be out before I even make it to the 2ww!

I looked back on my FF for previous years. Interestingly, even though my cycles are anywhere from 27-29 days long normally, last July, I had a random 32 day cycle! I wasn't chatting my BBT, but FF estimates that month I would have O'd around CD 17. Maybe July is a crazy month for me?!?

Either way, I plan to continue BDing every other day til I get my temperature rise.

How is everyone else??

Thank you to those who replied re Advanced & FAM. I'm sticking to Advanced for now.

9dpo today & feeling out. Was very dry after O & just had creamy CM at 8dpo. That's what happened to me last month before af. Not to mention my temps went down.

Can I join you ladies?

My OH and I have been TTC for 7 months and I have wanted to try the SMEP for a while, but we haven't really stuck to it. So this month I'm determined to do it and hopefully get a bfp!

I have irregular cycles, so I'm not sure when I'm going to ovulate yet, but I'll be starting OPKs on cd10 (currently on cd8). Hoping to be able to test at the end of the month as long as my body cooperates.

hi aidensxmomma! are you considering trying temping? i didn't get a single positive with opks this cycle, so i only relied on my temps for pinpointing ovulation.

bellarosa, i know it's too early, i don't know why i've been feeling so down since yesterday. i hate killjoys, and now i'm being one! how's your charting going? i can see that there's no confirmed ovulation yet. is it regular for you to ovulate a bit late?
