Hi ladies . My name is Alessia I've been married to my husband for 5 months and we have been TTC for 3 months . My cycles are short and irregular . Anywhere from 20-23 days. I started taking vitex to regulate my periods and lengthen my LP. My LMP was 7/13 . I ordered wondfo ovulation tests and received them on Sunday . I have tested 2-3 times a day since Sunday and im very confused about the results . I'm on CD17 . I also don't have EWCM . I have creamy CM all through my cycles .Should I take fertile CM if i don't get my BFP this cycle . I apologize if there are many misspellings I'm on my phone and its messing up . But any and all advice is welcome (:

I think you missed your OV window honestly. You said you started testing on Sunday which is July 26.

Based on a 23 day cycle and an LMP of 07/13 your "fertile period" was Sunday, July 19, 2015 to Friday, July 24, 2015.

Based on a 20 day cycle and an LMP of 07/13 your "fertile period" was Thursday, July 16, 2015 to Tuesday, July 21, 2015.

Your luteal phase (LP aka time from ovulation to next menstrual period) should be around 14 days as "the norm". Mine is 11 days which is on the short side. So even if you did OV around the 26th (CD13), that would be only 7-10 days until your next period, which is too short.

Incidentally, 3 days variation isn't abnormal. A 20 day cycle though does seem a bit short (and sucky too!)

Hope that helps!
