Well I thought I'd get the ball rolling and start up the October bus, there's plenty of cake and wine on board and extra comfy seats for relaxing into those BFP's

Can I join? I'm 32, DH 34.

TTC #1, cycle number 2.

AF not very regular since finishing the pill in June and I am out of the country for 7 days at the end of the month without DH, so I bet that's when I ovulate.

englishteacher78 Tue 10-Sep-13 19:35:24

Really, really hope I get pregnant in October - not sure I can take many more non-pill controlled periods I was nearly crying at work I was in so much pain confused

Btw, I broached the subject of a/d's and effects over the phone with OH, suggested googling it. He took it surprisingly well and said that at least we had an excuse to visit the dr. to discuss things.

Kemie Tue 10-Sep-13 19:44:55

english I have to arm myself with many ibuprofen plus pills during AF, sleeping with hotwater bottle (well microwaveable equivalent) hope the pain passes quickly for you

englishteacher78 Tue 10-Sep-13 19:51:13

I'm at the tag teaming stage: ibuprofen then two hours later paracetamol then two hours later ibuprofen etc. ridiculous .
Fortunately DH was able to pick me up from work.

funkymonk Tue 10-Sep-13 21:20:29

Oops, I got mixed up. I'm cycle 11 not 12. Not that it feels much better!

I envy those of you with pms! At least you know you have raging hormones! I have absolutely zero af symtoms. After all my research I think I have low progesterone (pre-period spotting, shortish luteal phase, ridiculously light periods) and started taking B6 last cycle (50mg throughout). This made one day less spotting and 1 day longer luteal phase!

Hi funky, I also get spotting, was on 50 B6 which did nothing, then last cycle upped it to 100, the only difference I noticed was really sore boobs for a week and a half (not good with symptom spotting) have gone back to 50 now and if it doesn't make a difference by time I've finished the pot I'll not be bothering with any more, hope you get more success with it.

flame40s Wed 11-Sep-13 00:02:30

Hi all, welcome aboard to the new October crew... lets make Octobe bus a right positive bus... destination BFP!!! smile

flame40s Wed 11-Sep-13 00:57:29

Hi kemie so glad you talked about it and even more so that he was so willing to tackle it. My oh hates anything medical especially our gp!!! Cant blame him really... Long story.

We have set a personal target that if we havent conceived after 6 months we will seek tests from a clinic if poss...given our ages.

Did you find anything via google?

flame40s Wed 11-Sep-13 01:11:42

Hi wineandchoccy love the name btw smile

Given you only came off the pill in June see these last 2 months as body and organ preparation for conception. How long was your cycle before the pill... can you even remember?

I take a daily pregnacare pill now as a supplement and just look at it as prep for a healthy pregnancy. Im trying not to be too desperate about it even though all around me I see babies and pregnant mums to be.

I dont even know if I actually ovulate every cycle!! So I am resigned to expect things to happen later rather than sooner.

Got to stay positive and keep looking after my body so im in great health before pregnancy smile

WifeofGru Wed 11-Sep-13 01:41:26

Evening all, can I join? Details are TTC#3 cycle 1 BFP due 13 Oct

Hi flame, there are some concerns reported by Dr Google, there was a report which suggests they can reduce count by 50% and affect morphology and motility. I hope it's not the case but I think OH would be more at ease with spermies being rubbish for reasons other than just him. Who knows but we'll talk properly at the weekend when I'm back home.

Hi kemie, I think its def worth him talking to a doctor and seeing if he can be weaned off the meds. Hopefully its not causing a problem but if it is then at least you know. Is he in a position that he could try stopping them?
How long is your luteal phase? This cycle I'm going to try 50mg b6 up to ov and then 100mg after. Did you try for more than 1 cycle? I believe some women need to try it for a few cycles to see the difference.

Kemie Wed 11-Sep-13 19:46:23

Funky, I only tried it for one cycle but was on 50 for about three months prior. If they were the cause of extra sore boobs for almost entire 2ww then I'd rather keep at 50. I have a regular 28 day cycle give or take a day every now and then with spotting a couple of days before, haven't temped or used opk's as OH prefers I didn't (to much science and pressure on him), so I just use my days app and guess really. Going for reflexology on Friday, although last time I went she said I was very healthy and everything is doing what it should, and not to worry about the spotting.
Re OH, he'd like to come off a/d if he can, only on a low dose at mo but at least we can go to GP and discuss it more/maybe get some tests to see what's going on.

SaltySeaBird Wed 11-Sep-13 21:04:36

Stopped BF mid August, it's been almost a month and just no sign of my body doing anything but we are doing "it" every other day so I'll sign up to this thread but not feeling too positive!

Took a while before, just hope it will be faster this time, I'm impossibly broody!

SaltySeaBird Wed 11-Sep-13 21:05:40

Oh and ttc#2 cycle MIA, BFP due ASAP please
