    define normal… theres no such thing

    evrything techincally works on me 90% of the time ive been trying (I did stop ovulating for a bit but clomid kick started than and every so often have a random long cycle which is ‘normal’) but im classed as infertile I tried 3 years for my first, 3 and a bit years for my second pregnancy that ended in a loss and im at 2 years again

    I have no known conditions like PCOS or endemitriosis, no blocked or damaged tubes, no progesterone failure, no ovulation failure (apart from the time I mentioned), no immune system issues, no STDS or scarring, no killer cells, no fluid issues and still cant get pregnant

    I have a very normal cycle, though it is short. 23-25 days and I have a 13 day luteal phase. We are on our 4th cycle with pretty perfect timing and nothing yet!

    I have “fairly” normal cycles… 28-32 day cycles.. ovulation between cd 12-18… identified with opk and temp spike. We are currently on our 9th cycle

    I selected 6-7 since our first pregnany took 8 cycles, and our 2nd was 4 cycles ttc.

    For our second pregnancy it took 8 cycles, and then I miscarried 🙁 but the third pregnancy managed to conceive within a month.

    cmtttc1717 :  Currently 11 weeks with my first. Happened on our 4th month. Temped, used OPK’s and had great timing each month. Had 28-29 day cycles. Month we conceived we used Preseed and I added a B6 vitamin. Not sure if those contributed or if it was just our time.

    I am CLOSE to normal (27-31 days), and it took us seven months. Ironically, the month we got pregnant we were NTNP (for reasons irrelevant to this thread).

    It took me one month first pregnancy. 

    I am on cycle 11 of no protection.. 5 of “trying” and cycle 3 of using OPKs. 

    My cycles are short (25/26). I get a super positive on day 12 every cycle so far.

     This month I’m have progesterone tested 7 dpo.

    We started TTC for baby #1 after our honeymoon and we got pregnant on our 2nd cycle of trying. I had 28-31 day cycles and usually ovulated on CD 14-CD 16. The cycle I got my BFP, the only difference was that we BD’d every other day instead of every day like the cycle previously.

    Now that DS is going on a year old, we’re planning on started to TTC soon. Right now, we’re on the first cycle of NTNP. I’m currently waiting to see if anything happened this cycle – I thought we timed it so there wasn’t a good chance, but I may have miscalculated. My cycles have been a little more varied since they came back after I gave birth (26-32 days).

    Newly pregnant here! It took me 5 years of real ntnp to conceive.  No temping tracking nothing.  So if you’re temping should be much sooner but you never know.  Some people are perfectly healthy and cant concieve. Also doctors cleared me of fertility problems so no explanation as to why it happened 5 years later.

    We were NTNP for 2 years, no pregnancy. We’ve been actively TTC for 9 months, no pregnancy. I’ve charted since the day I came off BC (so close to 3 years now). The entire two years we were NTNP my cycles were 28 days like clockwork. Since ative TTC they’re anywhere from 28-31 days. All bloodwork and DH’s SA have come back normal.
