nowmarriedgirl:  I would definitely give charting a try. opks can be great but they don’t confirm if you ovulated. It really isn’t too bad – you just need to take your temperature with a BBT thermometer every morning around the same time and log it in an app like fertility friend. It will give you a lot more information to work with. If you aren’t ovulating, your doctor can check hormone levels. The charters here are very knowledgable! Good luck and I hope ttc is a quick journey for you!

OPKs tell you when your LH surge is.  This tells you that you should ovulate in the next 12-48 hours.  Now, it is possible for the hormone to surge but your body to not ovulate.  So while your trying to figure things out it would be best to use the OPKs in conjunction with tracking your BBT.  Your temp will confirm ovulation after the fact.  So use the OPKs to give you advance warning to when to BD but your temp can tell you if your body is really ovulating.  ☺

nowmarriedgirl:  I had irregular, long cycles and now I’m pregnant.  I did take clomid the cycle I got pregnant though, and tried for almost a year (but only 8 cycles in that time).

The “slimy mucous” is actually your fertile mucous, so that’s a good thing.  That is the time you are most likely ovulating, though you could get several patches of it, or still not ovulate.

I definitely recommend charting.  It’s not that bad once you get the hang of it, and as PP said, there’s plenty of ladies on here willing to help out!

Something helpful for me was to chart cervical mucous too.  You can see the changes and tell when you’re fertile.  A lot of people recommend reading Taking Charge of your Fertility, but honestly I just googled BBT charting and did a lot of research and learned that way.  Good luck!

My cycles could range anywhere from 28-84 days. I charted and used OPKs. For me, charting was more helpful because it would confirm that I had ovulated. The OPKs would show me when I was having a surge, but my problem was there were some cycles where I would surge twice, only ovulating on the second surge. Charting showed me whether a surge actually meant I had ovulated.

It took us about 4 or 5 cycles to get pregnant. I got pregnant the first cycle we used Conceive Plus lube, fwiw. I’m not sure if that really means anything.

Good luck!! 🙂

I had really long irregular cycles. I got pregnant my 2nd cycle, I ovulated at CD80, so it’s possible.
