Well, maybe not but I have to get all your attention somehow!!!!!!!
Can someone put my mind at rest??
I have not ov this month!! I'm gutted.
I have never known this happen.
My 2nd m/c was in August and my cycles were always 24/25 days. Last month I ov day 21, this month nothing. I have felt small twinges as if it was building up to it and then.... nothing.
Has anyone had this happen in a month? Or do you think my cycles sound like they were dwindling anyway? Is this the 'change' already!!!!

however Sept saw a massive surge. had reflexology & hey presto preg.

maybe you body is havein a rest this month to prepare itself better for next month.

quackers, like Bogwoppit I'm sure I don't ov every month. Often I get ov pain - but some months no pain and very little mucus. After m/c I ov while still bleeding and then not again (as far as I could tell) for 3 cycles. Then the 4th cycle I had a big ov pain and hey presto conceived ds. Sometimes it just seems to take time.

HTH and good luck.

Gosh gingernut that's amazing, thanks for that. You just get despondent don't you that if the equipment isn't working then you haven't got a chance! Hope fully like both of you it;s just a glitch and because I have monitored since m/c I would know. There could have been months where I haven't before but didn't know! Ignorance is bliss!

quackers, I'm sure I've read that not all women ovulate every month. I think it's quite normal.

Well must have ov'd got a huge temp rise today. Clearblue - you're history. I felt ov and got temp rise so must have missed LH and opportunity for BD!!! Bugger!!!
Jane101, just read your other post. Hope that you will get success soon. LOLXXXXXXXX

you are right Jane101. Not all women ovulate monthly. I only ovulate about 4 times a year according to doctor. I have few periods (4 since ds born November 2002) and when I do have them, I bleed for ages! Grrrrrrrrr. Makes it v. difficult to figure out when I am ovulating as I am still bleeding 14 days after the first day of my period and it does not follow in my case that ovulation will occur 14 days before the end of my cycle as it is also irregular. Am currently trying for baby and have been advised by Gynae consultant to have sex at least 3 times a week all the time I am not actually having a period. Bloody exhausting! Got pregnant with ds quite by chance. Just lucky. Much harder second time round.

Antea - I have been offered Clomid too if no pg by end of Jan 2004. I know that I can conceive - 12 month old ds! but because my chance only comes around every 3 or 4 months, it is a question of how long we wait if it doesn.t happen naturally. Am nervous about Clomid but also know that it works. Don't have to look far on this website to read all about it! It certainly seems to be fantastic answer for a lot of women.
