I ovulated every cycle, although when I O’d veried greatly. I got pregnant on cycle 8 and am now 19+weeks pregnant. 

What do you mean a shortish LP? That was my issue; mine were as short as 7 days, normally 9-10 days, but never longer than 11 days. My OB put me on progesterone and I got pregnant that cycle.

Peffy:  I’m almost certain I O each month. I ttc for  8 months before bfp Then MCd at 10 weeks. I’m now on cycle 3 or cycle 11, whatever way you want to look at it. Not sure why it’s taking so long but have done some testing.

I’m sure that I’m ovulating every month as well. Got pregnant cycle 2 the first time, but miscarried around 8wks. This time, I’m going on cycle 8 and still no luck.

Peffy:  yep I O every month. It varies on which day I’ve been as early as 11 and as late as 21 – I get clear temp changes, clear signs on the OPKs or saliva microscope (I’ve used various things with temping all along) AND my cycles are always around the 27-32 in length. Still no baby after 14 cycles :'( 

Have you found that your body has started doing strange ass things the longer you try too? I randomly get spotting early some months, I’ve had a super early AF (23 day cycle?? O’d at CD15 that month) I.just.dont.get.it! Unfortunately there are a couple of us on the 1+ (I can’t say 6+ too because I haven’t been there in a while) that are “unexplained” at the moment which means everything looks good cycle and O wise and so far testing appears to be normal so there’s currently no explanation to why it just isn’t working 🙁

Peffy:  I O’d regularly, usually CD12-14, 27-29 day cycles like clockwork and it took us 11 cycles (dealt with MFI issues though), has your DH been tested?

I fall into this category. It’s been 7 months for us, 8 since I stopped BC, and still nothing. I temp and ovulation is confirmed that way. Really regular 25-26 day cycle, O basically either CD12 or CD13 (with a random CD11 thrown in there) and still nothing. Haven’t been to the doctor for any testing as I’m just 30 years old and we’ve not been trying for a year, but we’ll see what happens. I wish there was a way to know why it wasn’t happening right now.

Peffy:  Oh yep random symptoms here too. haha I got excited one month because I had NO symptoms at all and I thought maybe a THAT was a symptom hehehe the things we think. I swear in the 18 or so months I have been off BC no month has been the same. So annoying! 

Currently I’m dealing with another variation of the super sore stabbing boobs, AF is here (after an annoying start) but again I never have had pain quite like this… It’s enough to drive me crazy! I have to wonder if AF would be this annoying if we weren’t ttc but have come to the conclusion it probably is which is why I barely went more than 6 months with breaks for BC (I usually took breaks when I was single and went back on BC for a few months before trips or as soon as I got into a serious relationship) – my mantra currently is “I hate being the girl” hehe, if only our DH had to put up with this crap every month too…

debinoxford:  could you lie about how long it has been? Our Dr didn’t question it at all. DH accidentally said we’d been trying 16 months (it had been 12 at the time, 13 cycles). If I knew he wouldn’t have batted an eye at sending me for testing I would’ve done so earlier (but truthfully I was scared too, DH pushed me because he manned up and got the referral for a SA so I thought I better get started too). I would assume the process in NZ is the same as here (Aus) so the first tests are PCOS/hormone anyway and is all covered by Medicare (ummm do you guys have Medicare? I just realised that even thou we are fairly similar countries that maybe we don’t have the same health system hehe)

Sorry for thread jacking Peffy 🙂

I ovulate like clockwork every month. Perfectly regular cycle, slightly short LP, great temps. It wasn’t until we hit 12 cycles and started bloodwork that we found out that we have problems. I have diminished ovarian reserve, so even though I’m ovulating on my own, I’m running out of eggs. We also found out that DH has a genetic defect and 0 sperm, so we got hit from both sides 🙁 6 months is “normal”, but if you’re worried I’d go in and ask your OB to run some tests.  Mine was perfectly happy to start the lab work even though she didn’t think there was anything wrong.

DH and I tried for twelve months before getting our BFP and neither of us has any known health or fertility issues. In that twelve months we did two cycles of NTNP, four cycles of TTC and I was charting for the remainder of the cycles. My cycles averaged out at around 30-32 days and I usually ovulated on CD19-21 with a 12 day LP.

I honestly believe that it just takes a little longer for some couples so don’t panic just yet 🙂

Peffy:  Still waiting on ovarian reserve but bloods, hsg and SA all normal. Although, DHs morphology was 87% but we were told <96% was normal. Not sure about the difference between yours and ours. We’re waiting to talk to our OBGYN too. Unless there’s a problem with ovarian reserve or our OBGYN has other plans, we’ve decided to TTC for another 6 months without worry or stressing before moving to the next step. With a 30% chance of conceiving each month with perfectly timed BD, I think 16 months of TTC is enough time to give it before moving on to IUI/IVF. 

What cycle are you on? It’s good that you’re getting everything tested early on. We’re just at that stage now. I always think that it’s good to Check these things out and avoid heartache of TTC for 1+ years and then discover that there’s something could have been sorted ages ago!
