Hi ladies, this month oh and I are trying the every other day method. I'm due to ovulate thurs/fri and dtd last night. A lot of it fell out when I moved and I'm most upset cos I do my best to stay in bed with legs in the air! Do you think enough of the little would have been left in?
Hey nat, let's buddy up and see if we can get that , maybe we'll bring each other some luck! I certainly need it, onto 19th cycle ttc. How about you? I always try to pee beforehand so I don't have to get up! Hopefully the ladies are right and they got where they needed to go before it came out.
I did pee beforehand but ended up needing to again
We're on our 7th month actively ttc but we did have about a year of NTNP before that. I admit we have varied in our 'efforts' each month really but have tried to DTD at least one or twice in fertile time each month. I'm on my third month this month of using the CBFM. Last month I wasn't very hopeful anyway as both myself and OH had bad colds one after the other so didn't DTD enough. The month prior to that we did the 'every other day' method from about CD13 (my first 'high' on the monitor, Ov'd CD19). Ended up getting to 16dpo before AF showed (usually 14 day LP) and when she did arrive, was a bit different to usual and also had some different symptoms in the few days before and felt a bit different. So reckon I could have had a very early loss but I never tested so will never know.
I was planning a break from ttc this month but ovaries going mad signalling Ov around the corner (and 'high' on CBFM last few days) so finding it hard to ignore! Hopefully this is body's way of telling me to get to it as this could be the month
I wouldnt worry hun, most sperms that 'fall out' will be dead anyway and the live ones that will be swimming towards that egg as we speak will have entered your cervix within minutes of ejaculation if you have suitably fertile CM.
Softcups are a good idea, Ive not used them yet but I've heard good things from other ladies about them.
