Hi Bees, I’ve come to this board for advice, we’ve been trying since August 2012 and I’m 36 now. When I was 18 they thought I had PCOS following a month long period but when I was 21 they said no didn’t have it. After trying for 12 months we sought medical help and were prescribed metaformin, at one point during an internal ultra sound they thought they could see a sac but no . I’ve just been prescribed clomid and was due to start any day now but I’m now 6 days late! I don’t want to get my hopes up as it could just be my body holding off to delay clomid start as I was excited to start. And I’ve had really irregular periods for two years now ranging from 47 to 20 Cycles. But recently had stablished at 33 for past 3 cycles! Just had prog levels checked on day 29 and they were 43. My OB had said come back if prog levels were under 30 following taking clomid as it’s 5omg to start with so was suprised so high. I googled levels and some said high as 43 means pregancy any similar experiences? I’m off to buy test but think it will just show negative as too early!

I am 36. I’ll be 37 in Sept. We have been trying since Feb. Dr sees no reason to worry but June marks 4 months, this week. She wants me to wait the official six months. Frustrating. It’s my body. Sometimes I worry something is wrong with me and I don’t know it. We have done the deed at least twice during my fertile time and so far…nothing. This time, I’m trying right after my period ends, but before my supposed fertile period. I keep reading that’s when a lot of women conceived. Why not??
I keep trying to “chill out” and focus on other things but at times it’s hard. Especially when AF comes.
If you want a friend, PM me. Would love to have support and hear your results! XO

Coral99: thanks it’s good to have other people in same situation to chat to, I forgot to say I work up this morning with really bad acid feeling like bile that has only literally just gone away, it’s 3 in afternoon now! I know how you feel about your own body our OB changed after first appointment and it was like going back to square one. Never heard about straight after period I though fertile time was in the middle! I’ve tried lying with legs in air for half hour afterwards lol

Mojito77: The app I use tells me it’s in the middle so to speak but I have 2 days until my fertile time starts. Since sperm can live up to 24-48 (?) hours, I thought I would try this just in case I’m ovulating sooner than I think. It also doesn’t hurt to have sex with Darling Husband. 🙂 And then we will keep on schedule using the app. But I swear every time I read about the best time I keep reading women conceiving right after or close after their period.
A gf swears by leaving legs up. Both she and 2 of her friends did that and all got pregnant the time they did it. I did it last month. Didn’t work. I’ll let ya know. Hahahah.
I’ve been taking prenatals, too. I’m ready.
