beevincent18 :  I don’t have PCOS. I’m quite regular and read that the myo-inositol in the drink mix can actually throw off a regular cycle or cause annovulation, which I didn’t want to risk. I used the cleanse months after going off the pill mainly to see if it would help with my post-pill acne and to see if I noticed stronger ovulation. It did cause earlier ovulation and a longer luteal phase for me, but no baby. I think I’m going to just stick with Mucinex and PreSeed because the good sperm won’t really need the help of a Softcup, so it feels like a waste. Although hopefully we’ll be lucky and I won’t need to use them for a while ๐Ÿ™‚

And I agree I don’t really feel like the soft cup does anything either

I thought I’d jump back in now that I’m in a ttc cycle! I am hoping you guys may be able to help.. this is my first month really using OPKs. I got positive tests yesterday (!!) and woke up with strong right sided cramps which I assumed were from ovulation. I tested again and it’s still very close to being positive. Is it possible to get this strong of OPK while actually ovulating? Adding a picture from the test this morning.

MissB15 :  Mine kind of did the same thing this month, I’m still not sure what to make of it. 

Mine was dye-stealing positive on CD14, and the next morning one CD15it looked like the one you posted. ALMOST postive but not 100%. My temps were also kind of wonky due to restless sleeps so now I’m not sure if I would have Od on CD14 or if CD15s-almost-positive-opk was still actually positive.

In the beginning of my 4th cycle TDW (10-day wait as my LP is 10 days according to my calculations, not confirmed by a dr.). By the time I’m ready to take an HPT I get my AF. It is so frustrating, but it is never a question and then I get to start trying again sooner. I’ve been reading that having a short LP *less than 9 days* can be a bad sign, so I’m trying not to think too much about it.

My Ava showed a biphasic temperature pattern, but it is still having my ovulation on the 5th whereas I got a peak OPK on 11/6 and then a smiley face Clearblue on the 8th. We BD on the 5th and 8th and today, the 12th, just to be sure. 

Still going to test on the 17th. Which will either be day 12 or day 9? Or who knows… AF will arrive on the 18th if it is coming.
