We are on our 5th cycle with fertility medications. My cycles have been running between 35-40 days. Before that we weren’t trying but we also weren’t preventing for almost 3 years. I used an OPK this month and got my positive yesterday! So now we are in the TWW…

Currently in the TWW of cycle 5.  Not overly sunshiney and rainbowy of that other post.  I know a lot of people have a longer wait than I will/do but those one month-ers are a little annoying.

@Miss Sapphire: yeah – I’m shocked by the results of that poll right now! I always tell people ‘it ain’t that easy’. (at least for most people) If the 2-4 mo has the most I could believe it but I know WAY too many people who TTC’d for 6 mo to a year or longer and many folks using fertility meds. Interestingly the TTC time frame can be vastly different for different pregnancies as well. My bro connected on the 2 mo with kid 1 and it took much longer for kid 2.

Best of luck to you all in 2011!

I’m on cycle #11. Went off bcp in Feb and started charting right away.

My ovulation date moved further out every month from day 14 out into the 20s.  By Oct I didn’t O until day 25, and my GP blew me off about it, so I decided to see a naturopath/acupuncturist.  So I’m on my 3rd month working with her to get my cycle back into a more optimal pattern. 

I started on new chinese herbs this month, and I’m really optimistic that they will help.  Just got a first postive opk today, which is day 15 (instead of 19 or 20) – hooray for progress! 🙂

Good juju to all of us in 2011!

I went off of depo-provera (missed my shot) at the end of July, I have only had one very light period at the beginning of December, so hoping we can get things rolling soon. I might invest in an ovacue monitor in the next few months if things don’t start happening faster.

@ms sweets:   I did not get a smiley face until later in my cycle than I thought should happen. Just realized this month that we should be trying the day of and for 36 hours afterward, LOL!

11 calendar months, but about 6 cycles (due to long or chemically altered cycles!)  I have a good feeling about this coming month though!

@firegirl: that’s good to know because the directions say to start using them days before Day 14 so I did and I had a feeling I wouldn’t get a smiley face for later in the cycle, I was wondering if I was doing it correctly, thanks 🙂

this is my third cycle although trying not to take things too seriously. sort of somewhere between TTC and NTNT but not really admitting it. i went off BCPs in october. i use the clearblue OPKs too but never got a positive for oct/nov. did get my first smiley last month, but nothing. just got my 2nd smiley on monday, so now we wait. if it doesn’t happen, it will sad because i’ll have to take the next two months off as my sister is getting married in october. i’ll be 32 next week so i’m a little stressed about it all but trying not to be.

what is TWW? two week wait?

In the 2WW of our 10 mth (10th cycle) and first round of Clomid. I have 30 day cycles, Endometriosis, 1 ovary and fallopian tube and found out in November after months of testing, I do not ovulate at all. Good luck everyone! It isn’t as easy for some; health issues or not. And for those that it does take awhile, it can be a long, emotional, heartbreaking process. I have a friend with my same time frame but no health issues. Hubs and I are trying to not get our hopes up too much right now bc we have had some *signs* but we are eager for our little miracle, so its hard!

We’re on our 2nd cycle of TTC. I have 50ish day cycles…so it’s been a total of 3 months.
