Do you know if you ovulated or not?
No, i'm new to the whole TTC thing and I haven't invested in any thermometers and things yet. But a couple of weeks ago I did feel warmer than I usually do (usually cold aall the time) and I was feeling a tugging sensation in my right lower abdomen, I also had white discharge (tmi I know!!) So i'm thinking I may have done.

I need to invest in a thermometer I think! xx

Definitely get a thermometer - otherwise you'll be forever guessing! At least use OPKs.....

I am PRAYING I will O again naturally and not have it be another 8 months until I do
Hey Miss Angie.....that really sucks! If I happen OV this month (I'll let you know if I actually get a positive OPK and if I dont' get BFP but AF comes at a normal time, then I really really think you should give the Fertil-Aid stuff a try!

Check out these links for customer reviews....what really stood out for me where the ladies that took it to have their cycles regulate from stopping BC (Exactly the same problem all of us are having) Again, I don't know if it is working for me or not, but if I do OV/BFP/AF then I would say it is working and is most likely cheaper than you tests are going to be. The way I looked at it is it couldn't hurt?

-make sure you scroll to the FertilAid for WOMEN review and scroll down to see them all!
http://www.fairhavenhealth.com/testi...s.html#fawomen

this link is from amazon so unbiased reviews...where the one above is from the actual Fertiaid website:
http://www.amazon.com/FertilAid-Wome...owViewpoints=1

It seems to me that it doesn't benefit those who already have normal cycles.

Good Luck darling and we are always here if you need to vent!

thank you all so much! I am feeling better today. I am in the states and have great insurance however not for infertility. I think Im going to hold off on the all the tests and my next appt and see what happens with this cycle.

Finallyready, I am going to go read the reviews right now. I am definitely curious to see what happens with your cycle this time! I have also been reading a lot about soy isoflavones. I might try that.. I dont know yet!

I'm now taking Vitex (which seems to be essentially what Fertilaid is) - started taking it on cd36 and I've eventually ov'd on cd47

I took soy isoflavones this cycle (100mg cd3-7) and it seems to have delayed ovulation by almost 3 weeks I heard a lot of success stories, so it's not the same for everyone but I certainly won't be taking it again!

So....my test date is 4 Feb. We DTD on all the right days so I'm now just waiting for Mother Nature to run her course!

The one thing that I really LOVE about this thread is how happy we get when we get AF! HAHAHA on some of the other threads I'm on it is obviously a major bummer...but at the same time, when you don't see her for many many weeks/months it can get very nerve racking so when she actually does show it is amazing and I'm glad we all can appreciate that.

Cheers to LOTS of this month which will hopefully lead to lots of :BFP: for February

katiekittykat do you know it's normal to have a temperature dip after ovulation?

Have you read "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" by Toni Weschler? It says "some women notice they tend to have a pattern of a temperature drop on Day 2 of their thermal shift, followed by a substantial rise in temperature until their period...For pregnancy achievers you should assume that you ovulated about the day of or day after your peak day, the last day of wet-quality cervical fluid or lubricative vaginal sensation"

Hope this helps!
