@elchalten:  unfortunately, GPs are pretty hard to come by in my town. I’m a new patient of her’s, and the waiting lists for other doc’s are SO long that I’d be done having kids before I got a new one. So I’ll stick it out and just keep charting for myself.

I have a feeling my OB is going to be the same way unfortunately, but there’s nothign I can do about that. I’m using the OPKs as per his nurse’s request (she’s my aunt) and not getting anything ,so hopefully that, and the lenght/spotting, and my age (almost 30) will convince them to atleast draw some blook to check things out. Even THEY have to agree that 40+ day cycles aren’t normal!

@anotherbee:  I’m sorry  your dr made you feel that way about charting.  I definitely don’t agree.  If you are doing it correctly, it can absolutely indicate O, or other potential problems. Hand in there and keep on temping 🙂

@anotherbee:  I encourage you to stick with the charting too!  If it’s done well, it can tell a whole story about you and is definitely an indicator of O.  Not all doctors, especially family doctors, have faith in it, but I believe that’s because they are uneducated or limited in knowledge about it.

@MrsFarmer:  

Thanks for the support ladies. I have complete trust in charting. The one time that I did o, I got my thermal shift, and have the o pains, EWCM and OPK to all go with it. So I trust that it’s showing me what it shoudl be. I’ll just have to play nice with the docs. They can’t really argue against the OPKs though!

Also – random question. Does anyone get o pain when they don’t o? I get it sporatically, and ofcourse, I don’t o. But I’m wondering if this is common? For example, the last couple of days I’ve had it, but it’s all gone now. I’ve had it a few times this cycle though, and it never lead to anything.

@anotherbee:  I do! I get twinges/cramps that feel just like O pain for a whole week or so before I actually O. But its never certain; could be for a few days, might just be for an hour.

I *think* my naturopath’s recommendations are working. I’ve had 2 days of watery CM, which in itself is unusual for me, but also, its only CD14!! Could mean I’m set for an early O! (As opposed to CD27ish).

@anotherbee:  I don’t usually get any kind of O twinges or pain.  If you’re having pain and you’re not O’ing it makes me wonder (but I don’t want to worry you!) if you have a cyst that could be causing the pain and that could be preventing O from occurring.  I’m not a doctor though and I don’t want to freak you out.

@redsmarties:  Woooo!  That’s awesome if your Naturopath’s recommendations are already working!  Sweet!

@MrsFarmer:  Thanks. I’m trying to avoid thoughts of pcos and cysts for now, otherwise I’ll go nuts! Its not really ‘pain’, as in it doesn’t huthat just that I can fel it, like I’m getting poked by a Popsicle stick. It’s been like that today, and I’m crampy now. Who knows! I try not to read into anything, cause it usually just goesaway with nothing in my chart changing!

 

What sort of recos is your naturopath making? My cousin is a naturopath(but isn’t currently licensed). She’s the nurses’s daughter. The nurse (my aunt) hinted that the naturopath should be able to help me out, but keeps referencing tht she’s not in practice now

@anotherbee:  I wouldn’t worry too much about PCOS and Endo for now.  Especially since you’re Oing on your own.  What do your charts look like?  Are you pretty regular?

@septcabride:  it’s not really pain. It dones’ hurt at all. it just feels like i’m being poked in the ovary with a popscicle stick. It’s not sharpe, or anything, it’s just kinda there for a while. I can feel it, but it just feels weird. The lsat couple of days it’s been accompanied with some light cramping, like I felt in Feb when I actually DID o, but again, nothing hurts.

It’s not really regular, and I get it when I’m not oing, obviously. It’s not at a specific time each cycle. You can see it in my charts posted above.

I’m really not concerned about it at all. It’s most often on my right ovary, but sometimes it’s on my left.
