Secondary Infertility - Aged 35.

View Full Post

<-- These are the faces I make each time I get a and each time ugly AF shows up. I watch people come and go, getting their BFP's, yet I am still waiting. It's been 29 long cycles, I am now on my 30th cycle. My partner is desperate for his own baby and I feel like every month I am letting him down.
I am a YouTuber, and in one of our live pregnancy test videos, he literally cried so hard. I hate seeing what this is doing to him, I hate not being able to do the only thing my body could do - only a few years ago.

I am going to be using this as a journal to blog my emotions, my symptoms and god willing, my very own

Thank you for reading. Looking for cycle buddies!

Welllll.....no need to wait for the PG test....AF reared her ugly head this afternoon, so mystery solved. I was at 13 DPO. Now I’m just at CD 1

MissPug try not to get discouraged! I was using Ava for a fertility tracker, but now I'm just using an app on my phone (Ovia) to help with timing. I'm thinking about trying a tracker again. I'll have to look at Fertility Friend.

angyls19, Ugh! Sorry to hear AF's got you. :(

I'm CD15, BBT has dipped. I woke up to ovulation like pains and got my 4th 'high' as per my CBAFM. OPK's seem to be getting a little darker, so here's hoping ovulation is soon. The last 2 cycles I've ovulated on CD15, and the one before that CD14. I'll upload my BBT as a photo, the temp dip got me all hopeful... I definitely think we'll be trying a letrozole cycle.

Here's what my CBAFM sticks look like. I always write on them to know which result they progressed into. These new tests appear to suffer with a lot of dye run. Is that normal? I've never noticed before to be honest.

Just a few of my OPK's progression. Ignore the dog hair - I have a lovely 8 year old border collie called Noodles, he's absolutely crazy. It's not a pube.

I've heard from others who use them that dye run can be normal, especially with certain brands. It definitely looks like it's getting darker. I was always told that if it's not as dark or darker than the test line that there could be problems with ovulation. Again, I've never had much success (or patience) with OPKs. I think that if I'm not pregnant by the New Year, I was looking at a wearable fertility monitor again, such as Ava.

After reporting yesterday that the dye run on the test I suspect had something to do with my 'high' result. I cheated the system. I re-tested using yesterdays' test. Can you guess what I got? I goy my PEAK.

If I had used this morning's urine, I can bet i'd have gotten another high. I simply inserted yesterdays' test back into the holder this morning. The dye cleared significantly overnight - enough that the monitor could read it as a peak.

Interestingly though, my BBT has dipped.

This is after yesterdays' test. You can see just how bad the dye run was and why the machine wasn't able to return a PEAK result.

PEAK!

Look at how much that test had cleared over night.

I'm not going to lie that yesterday I felt so defeated that me and the DF had a cry together that night. I hadn't got a positive on an OPK or this monitor. I was worried that without a positive I was not ovulating. I'm still not 100% sure but this peak made me feel a lot better.

I asked on a few FB groups if you could ovulate without getting a LH surge - the answer came back no.

But on the same page, an anovulatory cycle I know the period is late or absent altogether (I own my own FB group so I have good knowledge). I am regular - extremely regular. I just don't know if you can be regular and just not ovulate.

I know that about 6 months ago, I'd have severe O pains, test and get my blaring +. I haven't had those pains for a few months BUT on Saturday night I had those pains back! I did OPK's and by that time they'd already faded from 2pm when they were most darkest. That's why I knew the Sunday morning CBAFM was wrong to not give me a peak. Hopefully I am ovulating on my own. I don't know. I'm hoping my BBT will confirm but it's hard as it's dipped as I am or rather should be 1DPO.

Way to go! Woohoo!! I really hope that you achieve your this cycle! That would be amazing!

I have never have really tracked BBT as I would ALWAYS forget to take it at the same time each day I believe I had an anovulatory cycle about 3 cycles ago since my period came less that 21 days after my other one (I'm pretty sure my OBGYN said that a very short cycle can fall under that criteria, too). I've always assumed that regular cycles mean that you are ovulating on your own pretty regularly, but I'm no expert! But like you, I'm usually right on target every cycle - around 30 days (give or take a day or two). Let me know how it goes as you progress into your TWW - I always hate this timeframe!
