No +ve opk yet, but I have a feeling it'll be c.28th July. Assuming my cycle is going to be 26 days like last month, then I could be testing on the 12th, though I will try to hold off until the 14th August. Good luck ladies!
So have you ever researched the shorter cycles? I quit BC in mid march and have been averaging 26.2 according to fertility friend, this is okay right? I have read that as long as your luetal phase is more than 10 days you are ok? Just wanted your opinion. Also, do you tend to ovulate earlier since your cycles are shorter?

Sorry for all the questions, just haven't met anyone in the same boat.
No problem! To be honest I'm doing opk's to get a more definite answer. Since giving up BCP I have had cycles from 23 - 29 days (though I have had spotting for a few days before AF in the longer cycles)

After the first month (23 day cycle) I read up on LP and decided to keep an eye on my EWCM to give me a rough idea of how long my LP would be. (TMI alert!) My EWCM tends to be around 13/14 days before AF so assuming the opks also suggests that OV is happening at this point, then the length of my LP shouldn't be an issue. It's the LP rather than the length of cycle that we need to keep an eye on. There are certain vitamin supplements that I have seen mentioned on the boards which have increased the length of this, but it's probably worth having a chat with a GP in case they have other suggestions, if you think yours are shorter than 10 days.

I consider that I ov earlier, because I always had a 28/29 day cycle before and without observing my cycle I was assuming that I ov'd c.CD14, when in fact last month it would have been c.CD12. Ov seems to be earlier because my LP is staying at 14 days rather than having reduced with the length of my cycle if that makes sense? I'm also taking a day off that 'for luck' as I keep missing the egg!

There are a few ladies in NTNP who are like us so keep your eyes peeled for them too. Good luck xx

So on fertility friend it says that my average OV date is cycle day 13, but I have only remembered getting + on CD 11, so needless to say I am CD 12 and haven't received an LH surge, I will test today, keeping fingers crossed.

Question, can you ovulate a couple cycles after BC and then stop OVing all together? If so, I am afraid this might be the case. My chart on FF is really strange this month.

Hey there girlies! This is my 2nd month trying.

I am on CD12. Just waiting to OV - which is usually either CD13 or CD15. I am guessing CD15 (8/1) this month as I did a OPK this AM and was basically the lightest line known to man. Also, I usually get OV pains and have none yet and have no CM either.

Plan of action this month is BD every other day. Last month we did it everyday for like a week and was exhausting bc I work like 60 hr a week!! And this month we are trying out Pre-Seed.

I totally plan to test on 8/14.

FX for all us mid-august testers!!

Snowflake - I am testing on the 14th as well.

CH - It can happen but I am sure that is not what is happening to you, maybe you just missed your surge are you testing between 12pm and 8pm?

I got my positive at 1:15 today so I used an internet cheapie and then confirm with Clear Blue Digital Smiley!!

I was testing around 4:30 everyday because that is when I was getting home. My chart just looks weird, so I am afraid I am one of those people who gets + OPKs but never actually ovulates, but! Oh well, husband will be happy tonight!

I would love to attach it, but I have no idea how! Also, my chart has not confirmed OV yet, so I am worried that I received a posItive OPK and my BBT is not showing OV.

Let me know how to attached it! Your opinion would be greatly appreciated!

Hey ladies,

So right now I am CD14 and FF has not confirmed OV based on temps but had positive OPK. Also, today I noticed a small speck of blood (TMI) when I wiped. FF said I would probably OV somewhere between CD11 and CD14. I am getting worried I need to go to doctor, help!
