    I'm new too. I am 34 and my OH is 37. This is our first cycle TTC. Also I use Fertility Friend - actually I've become addicted to it!

    Does anyone want to be buddies with me?

    I'd love to buddy up with you SugarSweet :hi:. We're close in age....but I've been ttc for longer though (18 cycles :(). Waiting for my next period, so I can start another round of clomid, or whatever my doctor thinks is best.

    Ladies, been MIA from here for a while. How's everyone? :flower:

    Cool Isa Buttercup.

    I am on CD5 now, don't know for sure when/if I ovulate, so going to use OPK's this month. OH is not in great form - so no BD'ing tonight for us!

    What does Clomid do - is that to stimulate ovulation or to prolong luteal phase? Sorry I don't know.:flower:

    Hi SugarSweet.....it actually does both. I don't have any problems with my luteal phase....but as I only have one good tube, it helps to stimulate ovulation from both tubes.

    Using OPKs sounds like a good idea....the more sensitive, the better. You could also do bloodwork on your CD21, to make sure you ovulated. Are you doing the Sperm Meets Egg plan? I hope to trick my DH into doing it next cycle (he hates anything regimented :haha:).

    Lovely to buddy up with you :friends:. I pray we get only good news this cycle!!!

    Thanks for the info Isa B about the Clomid :wave:

    If my OPK does not pick up a BFP - I will get the bloodwork done - thank you so much for the information.

    I've kinda heard of the sperm meets the egg plan and I reckon I will also be trying this next month if no luck. I have to read more about it but I'm guessing it involves BD from around CD7 every other day and on the day of ovulation (using OPK/temps) to detect it.

    Been taking supplements too B-complex, folic acid (separate), omega 3, magnesium, calcium & vit D. Have OH on zinc.

    I guess the only other thing I am missing off is the CM - but 'I think' that is ok but not sure. I've heard that some women use raw egg whites to help at OD. I guess that is the same as pre-seed? xx

    Yep, it's the same as Preseed. I normally have "okay" CM, but the clomid does tend to dry it out, which is why I've started with the Preseed.

    The supplements sound fab!! I take Pregnacare Conception, as well as Omega 3 and zinc. Nothing beats getting your body in fighting form :winkwink:

    Really hoping you get that :bfp: this cycle! I'm sooo looking forward to starting my next cycle though. I can't wait to try again!!!

    Hi I am 42 years of age and OH is 34 and I am trying for our first child (I have children from previous) we are now into the 2nd cycle of trying but think we may be TTC for a while due to my age and we have put a year limit on it so my fingers are crossed for the next 11 mths x.
