Pandorica, Have you got a new testing date in mind? That baby suit is gorgeous, I gave up sewing a long time ago but that is lovely.

Pcoswarriormommyegas, I’ll add you down as testing 6th November. Good luck!

Nasake, Thank you lovely. Best of luck lovely, I’m keeping everything crossed for you. HSG is good - as you say a lot of women conceive after theirs.

LadyMae, Hello, welcome along lovely. Interesting to know about the HSG!

Here is my FSH test, completed on CD3. This is a negative result. Just thought I'd share.

Hi misspug, I tested today at 7dpo and it was negative, I think I need to give it more time. Will try again on 26th. I don’t have any convincing symptoms so not much hopeful either

MissPug - I just had to check my app. I think my testing date will be anywhere from november 11-14th depending on when I ovulate. I usually ovulate around cd 14, but last month I ov on cd 17. And I know I won't be able to resist testing later than 8 dpo. Hence a span between 11-14. I'll know for sure when I get my peak.

anubhola, Sorry to hear that. Although 7DPO is very, very early! FX your cycle ends in BFP.

Pandorica, I'll add you down as the 14th, but obviously if that changes, do let me know. Fingers crossed for us this cycle! :)

Does anyone else here use a cup for their AF? Just wondering if anyone measures their AF output? I've always bled very heavily, a few years ago I measured 80ml (for the whole cycle) which is on the cusp of the high average. Now, per cycle I'm bleeding around 120ml per cycle, which is over what is considered normal.

Just thought I'd ask that question...

MissPug - I would like to use a cup but have yet to find one that I can wear without it causing pain/discomfort. It didn't help when I cut the end a bit, it still hurt. So I'm sticking to pads.

@Pandorica that's so cool that you conceived right after HSG and gives me hope!

@MissPug I use cup and first 2 days it's usually over 100ml a day (24hrs), then it get's better but still it's a LOT. I'm having super hard time to manage my iron levels because of that. But if you want to conceive they don't have any "solution" for it anyway. I read that you actually take pretty big % of it off, because it's not all pure blood. Few studies have found that around 36% of it is blood and 64% other elements: tissue, uterine lining, mucus and blood clots. So 120ml is considered normal actually, ofc if it's not the measurement where you already did the math.

I'm trying really hard not to get my hopes up. But my temp dipped today, at 6 DPO, and apparently that sometimes happens when implantation is occurring, according to my research when that happened. But this is my first month temping, so I don't know enough about my patterns yet. Then, I noticed acne on my chin. I have a clear complexion, never get acne. Except for when I'm pregnant. Course, I think it's too early for that to be because of pregnancy, but it's definitely messing with my mind!
