Pregnant now, but I TTC for a total of a year and I ovulated the same day, same time, every single month and it still took that long.

Hang in there, you’ll get your BFP!

Peffy:  We are in our 11th cycle ttc and I ovulate every cycle between CD13-15 like clockwork (however,we have MFI issues).  Hang in there and know you aren’t alone in your struggles.

Me!  I’m about to start cycle 10.  I usually O on CD 20 (plus or minus a day).  I had a BFP cycle 5, but it turned out to be a chemical.  I’m going to my ob to hopefully start blood work testing this cycle.  Fingers crossed for all of us!

Peffy:  We have been TTC since September, so that makes it about 7 months (although only 6 cycles because my cycles are a bit longer). My cycles are irregular but I always O (as shown by OPKs, CM, and temp shifts). I have also had ovulation confirmed through cycle monitoring by my RE. Although I ovulate, I do have PCOS, so I am guessing that has something to do with our struggles. We just saw our RE the other week and he said that it’s up to us – we can keep trying naturally, or we can move on to injectible fertility drugs. We are going to try one or two more cycles naturally, and then we might decide to try fertility medication. I am torn though … as frustrated as I am with seeing BFNs, I am also scared of multiples (which is a very real possibility with injectibles!) Ugh, whoever thought trying to have a baby would be so complicated and difficult?!

Peffy:  yes, my progesterone levels were fine.  i got the bloodwork done to confirm that i ovulate.  then i did OPKs to determine when.  i’m not temping, i asked gyn if i should and she said no. 

if we don’t get pregnant this cycle, Darling Husband is going for SA but we will have to look into what our next steps will be. if my LP is too short, gyn mentioned progesterone cream or orally or clomid.

we will see.

I ovulate regularly, yet we are into our 8th cycle of trying. Sucks. I did notice this time that I o’ed way later than my cheapie period tracker indicated I would. So I’m wondering if I have too shor a LP phase. I go to the doctor next week and will discuss it with her. I hope she can give me some hope. It’s really annoying to THINK your body is working right but you can’t get pregnant! Good luck to you all!

Hey, Peffy. In the 10 cycles that I tried to conceive, I ovulated each time, according to LH tests (and temps for my last two cycles). I usually ovulated between CDs 15 – 17. Based on blowing his (admittedly, at home) sperm count tests and his God-awful diet, I fully believe that our subfertility was male factor. About 6 weeks before I got pregnant, he started on a multivitamin and I would pack him tons of nutritious foods to take to work. It may have upped his count enough that I finally got pregnant.

Looking at these forums, I remember desperately looking at my charts to see if there was something wrong with -me-, just because it seemed so often that women here have PCOS/they ovulate at very irregular times/etc. After a while, I started thinking, “Maybe it’s not me…but it CAN’T be  husband, he’s so healthy!”

Thank God we happened to be taking a nutrition course together that required us to track our food and nutrients. His diet was devoid of just about…everything.

Peffy:  I know what you mean! I’m beginnging to think two-lines don’t exist. My eyes so want to see it. I have to stare at the sticks for several minutes before I come to my senses and realize it’s stark white. ๐Ÿ˜‰ It’s hard. But think good thoughts! I have to remind myself that stress only makes it worse.

Peffy:  I fit in this category. On cycle 6 of TTC. The first 4 months I O’ed on CD16, with 28-32 day cycles, so a fairly decent LP. The past two months I had a very stressful time at work and was traveling, and I didn’t O until CD 21 and still got AF right on time around CD31. I got positive opk’s this month at CD21, and I have been temping and charting CM the whole 6 months. I haven’t been to my doctor yet, because we are still within the year mark. I have my fingers crossed for this month…only a few more days and I should know. I am at 9DPO today. Trying not to test until AF is late. I am glad to see there are others like you and me out there. Let’s keep hoping for our BFP!

This was totally me. I ovulated regularly every month like clockwork. No problems on DH’s end either. Took us 8 months to conceive but I’m 32 weeks pregnant this week. It can be perfectly normal to just take longer than others! Keep hope!

Peffy:  “all of the one time wam-bam-thank-you-ma’ams on here”<br /><br />LOL! This made me laugh, but I also feel exactly the same as you. As much as I know that it is “normal” to take 6+ months to conceive, it really does make you feel like a big ole pile of crap to see these Bees who try once (or not really at all) and get their BFP

Thanks for starting this thread! It really helps. I know I am ovulating (have a clear temp shift) but still, 8 months on, and NADA. The factor for us is that Darling Husband is away for work A LOT so it hinders our schedule, but on the cycles where he’s been home during the FW and we still come up bupkiss it has been hard to take.
