Shay Good luck girl! When you say your temps are not above cover line, how do you know where coverline is before you confirm O? Sorry if my Q is stupid but in my app (FF) I have crosshairs and a cover line only after my
O is confirmed. I hope you just missed your pick on opks and that you caught that egg!
Pandorica I don’t know if you said it before and if so, I’m sorry for asking again but have you tried progesterone cream for spotting? I recently found out what it is and by doing a mini research just to see if it was something that could help me, I read that it helps with spotting before AF. Maybe it will help!
Glad that you’re seeking for some answers in a private company! Hopefully you’ll get some results that will give you an answer! Of course the ideal will be for you to get pregnant before summer
AFM 10dpo today and at this point I’m not optimistic at all. I did one stupid thing... I wanted desperately to pee on something and I only have opks.. so I took one and there’s not a hint of second line.. not ever the lowest LH which we are supposed to have in our systems at all times lol so yea if there’s no LH to trigger the dye I bet there’s no HCG too... I know that many ppl will say not to use Opks as hpts but I’m pretty sure it is an accurate way to see if something is going on. I’ve seen it so many times on early pregnancy by women who took an opk and it turned positive. So yea.. I’m a bit disappointed and that ladies and gentlemen is the reason I didn’t want to test lol But now I’m so mad. Even tho my temps are still staying high, I don’t have the slightest hope.. I think I’m going to order the vitamins for my hubby today. No reason to wait. I’m not pregnant! AGAIN....

Alex don’t give up just yet! You still have time!! 10dpo is still early for some.
AFM: the reason I say my temps haven’t gotten higher than my cover line is because how close they all have been. I know on FF they give a cover line after O is detected, but I can make a pretty good guess of my cover line too.
Well I am on cd25 and my temp just made a huge drop. Like it went down .5 degrees! That is Fahrenheit by the way. Not sure if that is good and showing O or if I am just going to be anovulatory this cycle. This isn’t the lowest temp I have had all cycle. Just want to see my body do it’s job this cycle and not have to worry about needing medication again. I am hopeful with this dip that it was O though! Here is what it is looking like so far and compared to last cycle.

Shay I don’t want to keep any hope just for AF to come in 4 days. I’m not naive.. I may O on my good side but my hubbys sperm motility is low and I’m 36 years old which is an issue by itself. At this point idek if the supplements will do anything in our case. Sorry for the self pity party but I’m so tired of all of this.....
Based on what I see on your chart I believe that you might be Oing these days. Your BDing is also good so I wouldn’t worry if I caught the egg! I know it can be frustrating though not to know if you Oed for sure!! I hope you’ll have a pos opk tonight!!

@Alex - I have tried it a few cycles, but not more than 2 cycles in a row. Didn't help with my spotting at all. But I'm still going to try it again this cycle. Only thing that stopped my spottings were when a friend sent me progesterone suppositorys. Then the spotting was completely gone. I'm also taking borage oil from today and up to ovulation.

@Shay Your Chart does look like you might be ovulating but then again I am right there with you with high temps and even a smile but again you can have a LH surge without ovulation and that is what is happening to me. It seriously sucks especially when Drs always think that they now better. I had told them that I wanted to try with Clomid again this cycle but of course they asked me to wait. I hope that it is not the case for you though.
@Alex i completely feel you 100%. Can you ask Dr. To give you clomid or other fertility meds. Can you afford iui or ivf? Keep fighting.
@Pandorica The spotting definitely is annoying. But im glad that you are taking things in your own hands. Bravo
AFM just trying to finish my semester with good grades. My baby and I have the beginning of a cold symptoms. Will Frer again on Thursday then geting my Provera on Friday.

Pandorica oh I didn’t knew it is usually prescribed. Maybe a private doctor could write you the prescription? I don’t know how things work there sorry...
AFM I’m having all signs that AF is around the corner. My cramping became more prominent, my boobs hurt a lot more and my temp drop .2 degrees (Celsius) this morning I’m very grumpy and I wish I could fast forward time a bit where my hubbys supplements will kick in, so his little fellas could swim a bit faster to meet my egg!! Of course I cannot even be sure about that so yea.. it’s such a pleasure to know that I’m almost 40 YO without even knowing if I ever will have a child of my own...

@Alex - Don't worry, it's not easy knowing how other contries work. Hell, I don't even know how my own country works sometimes. Private doctors are not common, especially not ones that aids with fertility issues. And before they help you, they almost always wants you to do a fertility check first.That's why I'm planning on ordering some bloodwork myself, because if I already have a low number on paper, it'll probably be a lot easier to get something prescribed.
