Hello I got my bloods results back this morning..and to be ovulating they needed to be 30 and mine were 29. So just under. Has anyone else conceived with under the ovulation mark? He's going to repeat the test, im on cd4 and af is here. Should I get them done today?

Mine was 10 fell pregnant that month. Turns out they done my on day 21, and with a 35 day cycle, they were never going to be much better!

Don't pin your hopes OR worries on it, they are only an indication.

Can I ask what and how you get bloods done? I have noticed a lot of people talking about them but not sure what tests they do and when you can have them done. I've been TTC for 10 months, had 2 mc's and didn't think they would do any tests as I'm getting pregnant (although I feel like I'm getting nowhere) and would have to wait until I've had 3 mc's for tests. But is there anything else I can ask for in the mean time?

21 days bloods test progestogen or however you spell it lol if you've had two mis carriages I would definitely get them done and just say to your doctor you've been trying a year, he's not going to know really

Just go to the docs and ask, if you've had two previous MC's they may prescribe you some progestrone.

Thanks broody and three...

I think I might try to go tomorrow. I'm on 9 dpo and holding out on a hope that I could be pregnant. Was wondering if I should wait until I know for sure but not feeling confident and spose the sooner I get the ball rolling with tests, the better.

I had my test repeated 3 times. It went from 3 to 11 to 30! As long as you're confident that they tested 7 days before your period then it's an accurate result.

One thing tho- I was also tested for Vit D deficiency at the same time as my GP used to work in a fertility clinic and said low levels of both are often inter-linked. My 30 prog level was after a 3 month mega dose course of Vit D3 and Calcium.

Spacey boo, can you buy vit d3?

Not at the dose I was taking (2 ampules of 20,000 iu each). I was deficient tho too by a very large amount so GP thought it would help. If you know you aren't deficient then try Barrets they have some D3 with calcium and magnesium that's very good.
