I am looking at POAS June 9th or 10th. REALLY keeping my fingers crossed as my DH goes to second shift after that and we won't have many BD opportunities!!!

I am trying evening primrose oil this month. My BCP worked 2 ways, both in inhibiting egg release and messing up CM, so I am trying to reverse that effect. Also, I have had a cone biopsy and THAT can also effect CM production, so let's hope! I am also doing the Mucinex thing close to O. If this all doesn't work this month, I'll start tracking BBT as well to make sure I am aware of WHEN AND IF I O, but want to start that from CD1.

Good luck and to ALL!!!

Not due for AF until about 6/17 or so....but I have irregular cycles that have been getting longer each cycle since being off BC. We are waiting to hear back from the doc to find out if they will see me since we have only been TTC since Dec 2011. In the meantime, we are going to do the at home male fertility test and we're going to use softcups this cycle too.

I want to try that male fertility test, as well. We have been trying since October and I have pretty dead on cycles so I think we might have to look at him

@ mommawannabe : It will be in this Thursday but I'm not sure what the directions say so we are either going to test him thursday or friday as long as it makes it to the house on time. My cycles aren't dead on so it could be me, him or both of us together. He had pediatric cancer, brain cancer at 2 years old and was treated with chemo, radiation, bone marrow transplants and surgery. All of which can cause fertility problems later in life. I just pray that it didn't make him sterile. With children who have cancer most parents aren't thinking about future fertility when faced with a dying child so his parents never thought to ask the docs. He's my angel so we will deal with whatever comes our way. Insurance doesn't want to do anything for us at the moment cause we haven't been trying for a full year. I will let you know how the test goes!!!

So how do you girls deal with the news of people close getting pregnant. This month we are not using any of the fertility meds since we can't afford to this month and I was sure I was last month had lots of symptoms .. Then of course AF showed on Mothers Day. Last night my brother called that his wife was pregnant.. (they were not trying, actually were "done" having kids) I hung up the phone and broke down. It is so frustrating after trying so long and all the money we have spent....... I am numb....

It's heartbreaking to think of all the negative things that are making it hard to TTC so even though I get crushed each month when I get AF I try to stay positive. We eat cake and ice cream for a day and I drink a little wine that day! I just try to stay positive knowing that as much as we want a baby, at least I already have the best man in the world in my life and maybe it's selfish to ask for anything more...then we focus on the next cycle. I don't want to put any pressure on my fiancé because if he is having fertility issues, it's from all the different treatments he had as a child for pediatric brain cancer. As for everyone around me getting pregnant. We don't have too many people we socialize with but the day I told my BF we were finally really trying, she said she didn't think she had gotten AF yet and I told her to take a test. OF COURSE the next day, she told me it was positive.....and it was an OOPS BABY. They were just never responsible about birth control. I am jealous but I am so happy for her too. She wanted to have kids and I'm her "go to girl" when she has a question because of all the TTC, pregnancy, birthing and baby books that I read. I'm the baby's godmother and she is even using the name same name me and my fiancé picked out for OUR second son. Lol...anyways, I'm grateful she has included me in so much...I have gone to apps with her, ultrasounds....and I'm going to be with her when she gives birth too!!! Just stay positive or it will impede your fertility and eat u up inside. I don't know if this helps at all...but I hope so. Each month, I think THIS IS OUR MONTH...and I hope thins month is....for all of us!!!

So...my OBGYN doesn't want to see me until we have been TTC for a full year. However, my psychiatrist has told me to have my fiance's sperm checked....a few times already. I didn't really want to bring it up with him because I didn't want to make him feel bad but I know there are numerous reasons why his sperm count might be low because of prior cancer treatments. I talked to him about it after I got AF this last time. He doesn't have a doc and would rather not go to see one so I suggested using one of these home tests to see if it can give us any clues. We ordered 2 kits, the "spermcheck fertility test for men" and "micra check home fertility check for men" the first is just like a cassette PT that shows you one thing, if the sperm count is normal or less than normal. The Micra test is a little micrascope thing that gives instructions to test sperm volume, motility and count. For the motility, you look at the sample undiluted to see how many are swimming normally and shaped normal. Then for the sperm count you dilute it way down (1 ml sperm to 10 ml of dilution that comes with the test) and count how many you see swimming in this little grid of 16 squares. 8 sperm or more in the 16 squares is normal. Well...needless to say, there should be tons of sperm swimming in the undiluted sample. I couldn't find ANY. I checked 6 different slides. None, not a single little swimmer. The cassette one said negative as well and there was no point in diluting the sample. I am crushed and have nobody to talk to about it. We ordered some fertility vitamins for him...fertilaid and countboost and I pray that they help. We also ordered a better microscope because he still doesn't want to go to the doc just yet. We abstained for 2 days for this test but we are going to wait a full 5 days for the next test. I am hoping we can perform the next test this friday as we should have all the supplies in by then...and I will let you all know. Hopefully something helps us or I may never be a mommy.

Aw man that's terrible. But the bright side is at least you know so you can be more proactive about it. Shame on the doc but I think having him take vitamins could make all the difference. Let me know what happens on Friday. Fingers crossed

I think I might have ovulated earlier than I usually do. It is possible to ovulate around cycle day 6???

It is possible to ovulate that early as the next batch of eggs start getting primed up when you start AF. Your luteal phase is what is regular in a cycle so keep an eye on it. How long are your cycles normally and when do you normally O?

My cycle have been 28 days long for as long as I can remember.even when I got off birth control over a year ago they stayed consistent. I just started using opks about 4 months ago. Its usually around 15th cycle day that I ovulated. This month I started having lower back pain last Friday but didn't think much of it. But when I stared taking the opks. This time they aren't getting darker but lighter as the days go.it makes me think that I ovulated already.

@ momma wannabe...it could b that you ovulated early, it could also have just been a fluke and I would keep using OPKs...it could ALSO be that you are preggers because OPKs can show positive when ur pregnant too. You might want to use a PT to,or row morning to check. It isn't unheard of for you to bleed like you had a period and actually be pregnant. Good luck!

As for me...we did a second home test and it was the same outcome. He is trying to come to terms with it right now. He doesn't want to have to see a doc but it's going to be our only hope. I just have to wait and be there for him...I love him so much and I can't bear to not have another little person that takes after him in the world.

@sugar i understand and I think that he is more in shock than anything. It is probably going to take a little time before he comes to terms with everything and then be ready to be proactive. You know how stubborn men can be. Its going to take some extreme patience and I am defiantly praying for you. Dont give up just yet :>
