My friend tried Ovusense. She now has a baby. She bores everyone to death tells anyone who'll listen about how wonderful it is. grin Apparently it's a lot more accurate than the store bought tests or temperature charts.

I can't recommend it personally ( I had IVF after 8 years of infertility ) but I do know that I would have used it if it had been invented when I was TTC. It turned out that my friend was not ovulating until really late in her cycle - she found out exactly when to "try" and it worked!

Good luck!

I'd try charting your BBT as well. Apparently the only way to tell if you are ovulating... although when you see your temp rise it's too late for that month. Also, if you are getting regular periods the chances are that you are ovulating every month. I used OPKS and never received a 'true' positive even though I tested twice a day. I am now 4 weeks pregnant so I guess I must have ovulated after all smile

You can get an app on your phone called 'flo' it will tell you when it is likeli. Or buy some ovulation pee sticks from Amazon. Much cheaper than pharmacy

I used these after I miscarried and have to say they didn't work for me. I think I became obsessed with it and it was too stressful for us both. Saying 'it's a smiley face hubby, let's get on it' isn't romantic or sexy!
I got pregnant when I had stopped with the strips, I had stopped taking my temp, stopped eating weird fertility foods and decided to just dtd every few days and have massages to relax. I roughly aimed to dtd more around day 8 to 16 I think (tho it was a while ago).
Tmi I know but, I know when I ovulate now as I can see the change in my mucus and got pregnant with dc2 guided by that.worked first time.
I know when I miscarried I felt it was never going to happen and it was one of the most stressful and upsetting times. I had made the decision to give it a rest and give myself time when I fell pregnant with dc1. I found babycentre trying after miscarriage boards really helped.
