Can I have some help please? Day 21 test showed I didn't ovulate

(62 Posts)

Ok got my results today. Everything normal apart from progesterone which indicated I didn't ovulate. Thyroid fine. All the other hormones fine. I normally get what I believe is ovulation pain and I must admit I didn't last month so I'm hoping its just an abnormal month for me. Obviously she wants me to repeat the day 21 tests this month and next month to check.
If it happens that I'm not ovulating then what could it be? She doesn't suspect pcos as the other hormones were fine and I don't have any symptoms of that anyway.
Dh gotta give a sample next but might take a couple of months for appointment to come through. So bit in limbo at the mo for a bit now. Still dtd. Trying to keep calm and keep shagging smile feeling a bit blue though.

Sounds perfectly normal hun, just the little one burrowing in and getting comfy!

Pm sounds great x

Aw shoot! At least you know you ovulated and fingers crossed next month is your month. I had some slight spotting and very mild period type pain today which panicked me a bit but seems to have gone now. Think it can happen and its if it gets heavy or really painful that you need to worry. So fingers crossed it is a sticky bean. Keep in touch, maybe pm would be easier? Xx

Hi Ninja - I am not pregnant - AF arrived with a bang today!

I am trying to remain postive - I ovulated this month which is great news and my cycles seem to have evened out at 38-43 days so even though they are long at least they are regular (ish).

Hope you are doing okay and your little bean is a sticky one!! xx

Well I'm keeping my fingers crossed that everything is a bit weird cos you're pregnant. Keep me updated x

I am not 100% sure when I would be due on as my cycles are so irregular and this is the frist since the miscarraige however they are generally around 45 days and since I got a postive OPK on 15th March I estimated that I might be due on at the weekend (that would be day 44). I dont normally have spotting before my period - what normally happens is a few days before I am a horrible hormonal mess (snappy etc) and I have lower tummy ache and then AF shows up bright red and heavy from the get go with really bad pains (I take mefenamic acid from the Drs just so I can function and go to work etc). I thought it might be a slightly different AF this time but this is the complete opposite to normal x

I don't want to get your hopes up but that's what I had sun and mon. Except I had what felt like period pain too. coulda done without that literally just light brown blood when I wiped. Never got heavier and didn't get any on the pad at all. It's gone completely now. Really hope it stays that way for you too. When are you due on? Do you normally get spotting beforehand?

Thanks ninja - I am feeling a bit better since this morning - AF is very strange - very light and only a bit of brown blood when I wipe. I still have backache but no other symtoms of AF that I normally get (stomach cramp, headache, rubbish skin) so not sure what is going on???

Oh mummy. I'm so sorry. She's a wicked witch isn't she? I really hope April is your month. Fx for you.

My AF arrived this morning hmm

[Grin] Not yet. Thought I'd wait til I'm due on before doing anything. Cramps are on and off but spotting very very slight. My back is really hurting though. I hope it's normal. Just hope its a sticky bean.
Weird thing is a few days after ovulation ds said to me 'mummy got baby in her tummy' confused think ill hire him out as a psychic and make my fortune grin

Oh my days!!!!!!!! That is absolutely fantastic - congratulations!!! It could be implanting bleeding / pain - it's very common - have you called your drs? Xx

Hey mummy. Got a very faint bfp today. 11dpo. Got period type cramps and slight spotting when I wipe though so am now terrified.

Keeping my fingers crossed for you too. It's not over till the biatch arrives as we know. Keep me updated x

Ah ninja sorry to hear that hun - get yourself a glass of something lovely and a big bar of chocolate!! I really hope your results give you an idea of what's going on - please let me know.

I'm 8dpo still having back ache so think its a matter of time before the dreaded period arrives - I'm keeping my fingers crossed though x

Hi mummy. Ill find out thurs I think. The nurse said to call in a week. I've had backache for several days and I've now got slight spotting and period type pain so I'm out. Not due on till thurs so starting earlier which is fab hmm
This is pants! Absolute pants.

Hi ninja - when do you get your bloods back - hope they don't keep you waiting too long.

I have a horrible feeling I'm out for this cycle hmm I have had back ache for the past 2 days. I'm getting worried about my luteal (not sure of spelling) phase as I'm only 7dpo - I don't need lengthen that on top of trying to regulate my cycles!! Xx

Oh god we conceived ds within 3 months too so its that much harder now its taking so bloody long. Hope your cycles have settled down a bit. I know what you mean about the positive test. I just want that too. Fx for us both xx

Hey ninja - we have such similar situations - my DS is 4 in April and I never wanted such a huge age gap - at this rate it looks like he will be 5 before another baby comes along.

I'm not too bad - I'm worried about getting AF too early too - one month it came 8 days after a positive OPK and I know that anything shorter than 10 isn't viable to sustain a pregnancy - that was a crazy cycle though (65 days and very hormonal) so hoping its a one off. I just want to get a positive pregnancy test (although a new set of worrying will start then!). Sometime I get frustrated as we fell within 3 months of ttc DS and I was so much more relaxed.

Keep me posted on how the bloods go xx

Thanks mummy. I've been getting one sided pains like I do before af comes so either I'm gonna come on really early or something's going wrong. So fed up with this all. If I get pregnant this month ds will be 4 when the baby's born. I don't want the gap bigger than that, I never wanted it as big as this anyway. I hate this.
Sorry for doom and gloom but that's how af has started the last few months with pain on one side and then moves to the middle when I start spotting/bleeding so feeling a bit miserable again
How's the tww going for you?

Good luck with the bloods today ninja x

No definitely don't wait a year that's madness! Insist on a referral. They can't make you wait another year, they just can't. Fingers crossed for you.

I've read that DTD the day before positive opk, day you got the positive and day after all stand you a good chance so sounds like you have covered the bases!!

Good luck with the bloods - let me know. I'm giving it a couple of cycles and then going back to the drs - I'm not waiting another year!! X

Weekend ok. Dh ill though so only dtd weds,thurs and fri nothing since then so I really hope I ovulated quickly after getting the positive opk. Got my next day 21 blood test on Thursday to check I did actually ovulate. Fingers crossed for you.

Hey ninja - how was your weekend?

We managed to DTD, thurs, fri, sat and tonight - fingers crossed!! X

I've text DH and told him what to expect this weekend wink
