There’s so many threads on here that I don’t know where to start or follow. I’ve been TTC...more so if it happens it’ll happen angle, for 2years after being on contraception since the age of 13. So 17years....I’ve had no luck yet. I’m beginning to notice more changes each month with AF, and even ovulation. I only notice the fertile discharge like one this the day I ovulate? Or is it the following days. I haven’t used ovulation sticks in the last year as I became to obsessed each month. I’ve had blood test which are all clear. I’m just at a cross roads in where to go next.

I’m in a similar position. I’m 24 and my partner is 28. This is our 12 months of ttc. It is becoming extremely disheartening. For around 10 months we regularly dtd around what we thought was the fertile window. I’ve had blood tests which show I am ovulating. For the last two months I identified my peak opk result which has made it harder when AF showed up. Partner is finding it really difficult that it’s not happening too as it’s something we both really want. With the current situation we can’t go forward in getting any tests for him. We are both on conception vitamins both healthy weights, physically active and I would say have reasonably good diets. I am loosing hope as each month goes on. You never imagine it’s going to be this hard. 😔

I get where you’re coming from, it’s so hard and disheartening each month. I try to ignore when AF is due, then I’m so disappointed when she does. Me and my partner have very much been it’ll happen when it,l happen, but after two years, we wondering what we’re doing wrong. (I’m 32, he’s 30) I couldn’t expect him to have a fertility test himself, as I don’t want to add stress on top to TTC. We don’t want to stress ourselves out by making it become a routine every month, because I feel that would make me even more disheartened in this process. Even when we do the deed, I can’t help but think I’m probably not pregnant.

I’m trying to look at in the sense that the sooner he gets tested too the sooner we can move forward and help the situation if you get what I mean. I must admit, every month I think I don’t feel pregnant so there’s no way I can be. 11dpo today and period pains started tonight so AF will be here by the morning. Just heart breaking 💔

Hi everyone. Im ttc at the moment. Started last month and got my period today. Knew it hadnt worked by gut feeling straight away. Have been pregnant twice and miscarried both one at 12 weeks one at 4 so feel disheartened and stressed but ready to try again. I think i usually ovulate about a week after my period ends. Im currently drinking grapefruit juice as this helps cm.

It’s so heartbreaking when AF shows. Every month I just tell myself I’m not pregnant then it’s not a let down for me when she does month it’ll be a BFP for us! it has to happen one day

@RyanBergarasTeeth I’ve never been pregnant, so don’t know the signs if I was early pregnancy. my ovulation seems to be about the same as yours, usually a week. I don’t want to get hooked on ovulation sticks as I know I’m likely to become ocd in using them.
I’m sorry to hear about your miscarriages too [heart]

Thank you mellymooki. Hopefully this month is the one for us all.

emmajayden971 Sat 16-May-20 22:21:48

I feel like it’s another massive worry that I’ve never been pregnant I’m worried that it means we can’t. On paper we should be fine but you just know it doesn’t work like that does it 💔 my periods range between 30-36 day. I did an LH test today and it seems to be rising again but I’m on cycle day 30 and already had my peak and hopefully ovulation. Took a test and negative as I’ve heard that sometimes LH indicates pregnancy. Could it be possible I’m going to ovulate again this late in my cycle? 🤞🏼

@emmajayden971 it never works the way we want it to sad I’m currently 11dpo....I have spots which to me is always a sign of AF, as I always get an outbreak before. So not feeling hopeful again this month 💔 my periods seem to be 28/29 days although the last cycle was 30. I often wonder if I log AF wrong on the apps I use

Im coming to the end of my period so its been a sucky month. How are you feeling.

Lmac2018 Mon 18-May-20 13:56:32

Hi ladies can I join?? I have 3 days before my period comes and the last 2 days I've had a very very dry mouth and it stopped yesterday but I am still drinking absolutely loads of water and peeing for the whole nation! If I don't drink water for like a hour the dry mouth starts to come back. Never ever experienced anything like this and I spoke to a nurse who said diabetes is rare for my age and that I would have alot more symptoms... can anyone help me out xx

Lmac2018 Mon 18-May-20 13:58:32

Been to the toilet and a little bit of brown when I wipe think I'm out

Lmac2018 Mon 18-May-20 15:50:33

It was only there for 1 wipe and then I've put a pad on and aboluslty nothing. Had a few cramps but they've gone now not as bad as usual

Mellymooki Sat 23-May-20 12:04:48

Top test is an opk I did one before my bleeding started and it was negative and then I did one yesterday while I was still on and off spotting and it's come up with two line (obviously that's negative as well) and then today I tried again. Bottom one is a pregnancy test

Mellymooki Sat 23-May-20 13:02:13

@Lmac2018 I got to dependant on this tests last year, I had to stop. Because I was becoming too obesssive using them and working out my ovulation window. Wish it was an easy road
