About 2 1/2 weeks ago I had a natural miscarriage. I was 6 weeks along. I bled/spotted for about a week and then things seemed to be back to normal. My hcg levels were very low to start with and I took a pregnancy test which came out negative.
My husband and I decided we wanted to try again without having a period first. I started to use opk’s to track when I would be ovulating as I used them in the past and they worked out well for me. I guess I’m kind of confused if I actually ovulated.
The line started to get darker but never as dark as the control line. For about a week I had ewcm, with the last day very wet (tmi) down there and clear ewcm. The next day I have seemed to dry up. But I never got a dark line on the opk.
So I’m wondering if I missed my surge or if I never ovulated. I was testing at 2pm and 9pm the last few days.
I’m just confused….

Sorry to hear about your loss.
It’s hard to tell if you ovulated, it’s possible that you did and had short surge and missed it. I always had short surges and the month of my BFP I missed the positive test (only caught the almost positive).
FX for you!

Sorry for your loss. I don’t use OPKs but my cycles shifted quite a bit after each of my natural miscarrages. I had two. My ovulation day changed from CD 12 to CD 18. So, expect things to be a bit different and maybe confusing going forward. Good luck!

@Kim4995: I’m quite curious too as Im in a similar position (except mine was a D&C). I keep getting a positive on my OPKs. I’m assuming that means my hormones are out of whack. I would say you’re experiencing something similar. I’d dd every other day and hope for the best. My friend was in the same position and she managed to get her BFP right away. Hopefully the same will happen you 🙂

I’ve actually been wondering this as well. I had a chemical last cycle, and this cycle has been very weird so far. I always ovulate between CD 10 and 14, but usually on 11 or 12, and so far, I have tried to O twice and no luck. My stupid temps won’t stay up. I got an almost positive OPK on CD 10 which was great, but missed my surge, temp went up for two days then dropped. Then around 8 days later, I got another positive OPK and EWCM and thought thatws it for sure, got a temp raise, and then it’s back down today. I’m only 4 days away from what was a normal full cycle length for me, and I’m wondering if I’ll ever ovulate again 🙁 It makes me sad thinking that we are doing all this great timing of BD, and then it’s all for nothing. Sigh.
