    how long is your cycle normally? Yes it is the best way to look at it tbh. How many cycles you been trying ?

    My cycle has been a bit wonky since my chemical in October.

    I came off the pill in June, first cycle was July (but that was just a withdrawal bleed from the pill) we used the withdrawal method in July and August, then in September and October we kind of used withdrawal method but also forgot a few times, resulting in a pregnancy in October which was a chemical. We started properly trying in October. Then, my cycles from November -February were all over the place. My normal is 28 days but they have been from 10-35 days. I only had one normal cycle in that time. This cycle looks like it’s going to be normal too, since I know I ovulated on cd14. Af due on Monday.
    So really, this is my fourth cycle, but it feels far longer because I came off the pill in June.
    So basically got pregnant the third cycle we were using withdrawal, then I started prenatals, ovulation tests and so on, and had 4 cycles of nothing.

    See I did go back to normal before the chemical. That’s why I’m confused!
    Yes, I have got a telephone consultation on the 18th.
    We won’t be lucky this month. Probably won’tdtd because df is working 12 hour shifts in my fertile week and he’s always too tired. It sucks, but at the same time, I don’t really fancy a mid December baby so I’m okay with this month being about getting healthy.
    Going to look into Maca and CoQ10 or whatever it is.
    What about you?

    Thank you! I’m sure it will just be the general “eat healthy take vitamins wait til 1 year” but I’m hoping they might do something sooner than 1 year because of my history. It seems cruel to have trouble getting pregnant AND trouble staying pregnant.

    I think the next step is a laparoscopy which I guess they could put me on the waiting list for, my sister waited ages for hers pre covid and hers was to manage her severe endometriosis, so medically necessary. I can see it being a year out. And I don’t think there is anything structurally wrong except maybe my right tube being blocked, and if that is the case I should still be okay on the left. I don’t see how it would have got blocked if it was fine when I conceived dd.
    They might check for thyroid and clotting things again but those were all clear last time.

    Thanks!
    It’s possibly nothing but it’s just strange how everything was fine until I had my chemical. We have always got pregnant really easily.

    would you say dtd everyday for the 3 days leading up to ovulation and including ov day is better than every other day ?

    I don’t really know. We just do it when we feel like it, roughly every 2/3 days.

    It depends on your cycle length, it tells you on the instructions what day to start.

    13dpo today.
    Going to do another test just to confirm I’m out. I do have slightly sore boobs and I feel a bit sick but it’s probably nothing.
