Just wondered if anyone is in the same position as me. I have a regular cycle 26-27 days, get a positive opk cd14-15, have been trying for 8 cycles but nothing! Anyone been in same position and found out why or had a happy ending?

Thanks ladies!

No but i would just say 25% of issues are related to men and another 25% and both partners. So you could be fine and it be your partner.
(Im sure there nothing wrong but just so you know)
Have you been for any investigations?

Hi naty1 thanks for replying. Bf has been tested and swimmers are normal. I'm about to have a thyroid blood test and the 21 day progesterone test. All the ladies I've spoken to who are older either tend to have a few cycle complications or conceive relatively easily but sadly suffer m/c's. I don't fit in to either group. All these tests are so frigging expensive.

Are you in uk? Why is it not free

I am, but I have to pay for both as they're fertility related and my surgery won't cover tem under NHS.

Thats a bit odd? Do you already have kids?

No, I live in Surrey which apparently is the capital for women delaying motherhood so waiting lists for IVF etc are really long and my GP immediately pushes to go private. I think they make the mistake of assuming you can afford it because of your postcode, not the case.

Yeah i can see about the waiting. Even with no waiting list it was months from referral to meeting at clinic and then months between appointments
We didnt have to pay for investigations - blood tests, or sperm analysis.
But i never had amh measured etc not sure if that is due to age or nhs. I only had a scan when i got to the clinic.
Its worth looking at the success rates on hfea website as can vary a lot with age (or did when the figures are from 2011 i think)'
Are you also having fsh and lh measured , cd3 approx?
You still have a good chance naturally as 8months isnt that long but always worth looking into.
