Ladies, I need your advice. I am currently in my 18th cycle of TTC. My cycle is 30-31 days, today is CD12. According to several calendar apps I would ovulate around the 29th or 30th. However I got a peak on the CBEFM today. The monitor usually gives me a peak several days earlier then the calendar. I tend to want to believe the monitor as it is testing my hormone level but obviously things haven’t been going so well as we are still not KU!
DH and I have very opposite schedules and have a difficult time getting BD in around O time. So my question is which dates should I focus on? CBEFM or Calendar? Obviously would love to do both and will try but our schedules are too opposite.
I should mention I never have noticible physical signs of O therefore kind of shot in the dark…

By “calendar” its nothing to do with charting/tempting right? Just an app based on cycle length? If thats the case CBEFM all the way! Do you examine the back of the sticks? I found the CBEFM to be very accurate and so have everyone I know who has used it.
If you want to post a picture of the back of your sticks I dont mind taking a look.
Good luck, I hope this is your cycle!!

@Sea_bass: Thank you! I just checked the back of the sticks (I had thrown them away ) but pretty sure I found todays and the lines were pretty much equal. I don’t temp due to working shift work, so loving the CBEFM (have been using it since June 2012) just frustrated with not getting a BFP yet, thought maybe something was wrong with my monitor. Trying not to get my hopes up but I have felt for awhile that cycle 18 was going to be it for us so I just want to make sure we get everything we can control “right”.
After all you have been through, I hope you get your sticky baby soon! FX

@lonsk: Oh I wasn’t a charter either. There was no way I could with my sleeping patterns. I loved the CBEFM so much. I have wonky cycles and it really showed me how I was O’ing on completely different CDs! If your lines are even then go at it I say! Now and the next few days if your schedule permits.
I so hope this is your cycle, 18 cycles, I can’t even imagine how hard it must be for you.
BIG HUGS & BABY DUST YOUR WAY!
