DTD or not?

Hi all,

I have two girls aged 6 and 9. It's a miracle really as I have PCOS and almost never have periods (about 2 per year) totally irregular, no pattern whatsoever and have had recurrent miscarriages before and since they were born. I was on the implant several times in the past and both times I conceived my girls the month the implant was removed. Im guessing its got something to do with a massive surge of hormones that comes once the implant is removed?? Either way I've been very lucky.

I remarried last year and my husband and I would like to have a child. We miscarried last year (my 8th miscarriage -over the course of 10 years.) I've lost loads of weight since then, about 4 stone so feel in a better and healthier position to TTC. Anyway I had my implant taken out on 4th April, came onto a period on Saturday 16th, it was very light, not like a real period, but I've bought some ovulation predictor kits and tested yesterday (Monday) just to see what's going on inside as my periods are never regular so presumably neither is my ovulation. Yesterday I got a faint line, I tested again today with the OPK and got a darker line. Should me and my husband DTD tonight? Or wait a couple more days for that line to get even darker? I just dont want to 'miss the boat' as I reckon this month is my best chance given my history.

Any advice greatly appreciated!

Hi, your opk isn't positive yet but sperm can live inside the womb for approx 3 days. You can dtd every other day until your positive so you have as much sperm as possible sat ready and waiting for egg release. Keep going until a couple days after your positive opk ( the egg can take upto 36 hours to release after the positive).
It's also best to do an opk late morning and another late afternoon as your lh surge may only last a couple hours and you can miss it if only testing once a day smile

Good luck! grin
