Am TTC, have been for 8 mths now and since having dd1 15 yrs ago have always fallen easily so am getting a little fed up now.

I'm 43 in couple weeks
Regular 26 day periods, (was 28 days up to Xmas)

stopped bf 8 wks ago

getting pos on OPK's so assumed was ovulating but someone told me a surge doesn't always mean ov takes place.

So... I have 2 fsh mid stream tests, and am wondering when to use them, Is is day 3?

thanks if anyone can help.

err, what's TTC & fsh? Excuse my ignorance but genuinely interested as age 47 and begun to think about menopause.

TTC is trying to conceive

fsh is follicle stimulating hormone

Apparantly, the fsh test can tell you if you are nearing perimenopause

yes its day 3

why dont you start temping, as then it would show if you ovulate as well xx
