I am getting married in a month and we are planning to TTC straight away. I have come off the pill and am charting. First month I ovulated day 12, last month, day 15 and havent had confirmation of ovulation yet this month.
Yesterday morning (day 11) i got a negative OPK but line was dark so i tested again at 3pm and it was definitely positive. This morning I had a slight temperature rise and a very dark line on my OPK. No EWCM today. The condom split this afternoon and I am now worried I could get pregnant. What do you ladies think? Do I need to be concerned?
I don’t want to take the morning after pill as I don’t want to mess up my cycle so close to ttc.
Thanks for any opinions.

Since you so close to TTC you’re not willing to take Plan B, why worry? Yes, it’s possible but only time will tell.

I’m a bit clueless about charting, so sorry if I’m missing the point. If you’re planning on TTC in a month, why worry about taking the morning after pill? I don’t think you’d be showing at your wedding even if you were pregnant now.

I’m not an expert, but the temperature rise usually happens a day or two AFTER you ovulate, so if your temperature rose already, you should be fine…
I’ve never used OPK’s so I can’t help you there, but I would think based on temps you should be fine.
That said, your getting married in a month, if you were planning on TTC right away anyway, I don’t see what the big deal is. If your a drinker just get sparkling juice instead of champagne for the wedding and noone will be the wiser.

It wouldn’t be the end of the world, but wouldn’t be able to drink on our honeymoon or do lots of the planned activities! Also worried then about feeling tired/sick/miscarrying around the wedding or honeymoon. Lots of miscarriage history in my family. I know there isn’t much I can do, but seeing as my temp has risen wondering if I should be ok anyway?

@Hemnes: The fact that you haven’t had EWCM yet is a pretty good sign. Have you been checking your cervix or had a + OPK? Honestly, even if you have sex in the fertile window doesn’t necessarily mean you will get pregnant. Some ladies hit every single day, have no other fertility problems and it still takes months.
On the other hand, you could get pregnant. The possibility is there. You’ll just have to wait and see.

@MrsRugbee: Yes, had +opk yesterday and today, EWCM ended on thursday. I ultimately would be happy to be pregnant, but we do want to have the wedding and honeymoon first. I know it could take us ages as it hasn’t been an easy ride for my sister or a number of friends which is why we decided I should stop taking the pill before the wedding and start charting to see it if was ovulating.

I’d try to relax if I were you, and focus on the wedding. Usually, you ovulate on the last day of low temperature. And even if you get timing, and everything else perfect, there’s still only around a 20% chance that you’ll be pregnant.
As you were planning on trying in a month anyway, I don’t see how it’s such a big deal. If you are pregnant, you won’t be showing, and you can find other fun activities to do on honeymoon.
