Where are all of the TTC buddies? ?(

Well i have 8 days until testing but won't be doing a test.

We have hardly had any bdin at all. Had so much stress over the last month we havent had time for anything which is annoying :sadface:

But theres always next month. DP has got to go for sperm count test, and me for 21 day bloods. Not sure what use this will be considering my cycles are anything from 32 - 49 days? ?(

Shells,

This needs sorting out. TTC naturally with cyclces as long as that is not going to be very re-productive. Aside from the problem of knowing when ovulation has happened and when your period is due (and most importantly, overdue), you are having too few ovulations per year to give you a good chance, plus cycle lengths greater than 35 days are likely to be either non-ovulatory or poorly so.

You need to get some help to deal with this. The odds are not nil by any means, but they are certainly reduced by your cycle lengths.

Good luck

Thanks Paul...

Where do you think i need to go to get this help? My doctor just rambled on about putting me back on the pill which obviously isnt a good idea because i'm TTC!! He said it's the only way to regulate my cycles. ?(

I have tried to change doctors but my application was refused because i already have a doctor in the area.... but they are rubbish!!

Hi Shell!

I am here, another few days till I OV, that's usually when I start posting here! Due to OV on the 10th (tues) this is my fav time of my cycle cos there's still hope and I get very excited, only to have my hopes dashed on the arrival of Af :sadface: oh dear shouldn't be so negative :rolleyes:

Silly doc for sayin you should go on the pill! 21 day bloods are taken on the 21st day of your cycle after Af arrives, they check your hormone levels to see if you can sustain a preg and check whether you have ovulated! Do you know what day you normally ovulate on? You use OPK's dont you Shell? xxx

Think positive hun...

Well my cycles are irregular so i never know when i am going to ovulate...
I have only ever had one positive OPK...

I dont think 21 day bloods will bring anything up anyway because my cycles are longer than 28 days xx

His Shells,

You are not far from one of the best fertility clinics in the country, Midland Fertility Services, in Aldridge, West Midlands. Can you get yourself a consultation there? You will probably have to pay, and get your GP to do you a letter - but hopefully he will do this to get you off his back!

If you have a consultation with this unit, they will then be able to discuss options with you which will then put a pressure on your GP to take you seriously. Try not to get involved with booking in for hi-tech treatment, stick to a consultation for advice and guidance.

This would be easier than my explaining what should be done for you. This information won't help you if your GP continues to be reluctant to listen to you.

Sorry Shell.

I'll be going to that clinic too, if I ever hear anything from them! Had my Gynae apt a month ago now and still heard nothin, think the hospital must be waiting for DF's sperm before referring us, so looks like he will have to do it again, even tho there's results at his docs :rolleyes:

I've been reading up on the internet about angus cactus and it says you stop taking it when you are due to ovulate..

This has confused me a bit because i don't know when i ovulate because of my cycles differing every month..

Hi Mad_Shell,

You can check when you are approaching ovulation by observing changes in your CM and cervix position and confirm when it's happened by checking your BBT every day. It's not completely fool proof as ovulation can be delayed by stress/illness etc but I've always found it fairly reliable. There's a great book I would thoroughly recommend that explains all about it called Taking Charge of your Fertility by Toni Weschler which I found very useful. It explains all those things that no one ever told you about your fertility and cycle that you really really wish they had!

HI Shell,

if you're worried about when to stop taking the agnus castus then you could always stop on cd 12. I know your cycles are irregular and you're not even sure if you're ovulating every month but you are probably not ovulating before cd12.

What's happening with the GP and your tests???

Agnus Castus - a tincture of the 'chaste' tree as it is called, is a homeopathic preparation supposed to improved pituitary function.

In general I have a high regard for homeopathy and equally in general, it does seem to work. I was not aware about restrictions on its use and don't how important these really are - as it is recommended for fertility in general. I can't see it having any nasty effects however, as it is meant to 'balance' pituitary hormones. Ovulation is the result of the two weeks or more of ovarian preparation so if agnus castus is going to affect ovulation it will have already have doen so by the time you ovulate.

I will try to find out more and let you know.

Hi Shell,

The only warning I had on the stuff I used was that you shouldn't take it when Pregnant or when using other drugs which influence your hormones (such as the pill). Do you chart your BBT? if you did then you could work out how long your luteal phase is so you could work out when to stop taking it. I took it from the start of my cycle until 7 days post ovulation then waited until the start of my next cycle. Charting is really useful and in my case it highlighted that I'd developed a luteal phase defect as it was not a consistent length, after taking Agnus Castus for 2 months it went back to normal. If you have a good GP then they should be interested in your charts, someone I knew took hers to her GP when she had trouble and he sent her straight to a fertility specialist as 3 months of charts showed no ovulation.

Charting does really help you to work out what's going on. Don't be disheartened on your first month if it doesn't make sense it took me a couple of months to work out what the hell I was looking at, mainly because I kept forgetting to take my temperature when I first woke up, initially it's not the first thing you think of when you get up at 6am :D

morning ladies!
Quick introduction, my name is Kate, I have been lurking around the IVF forums as I have had my fair share of them, latest BFN being the beginning of March. My reason for IVF is blocked tubes - 'What is she doing here?' - I hear you ask? Well I am hoping for a miracle!!! Miracles can happen, I believe that, but I think I need to help out too....so, am thinking to get myself one of these ovulation monitors. I went into my local pharmacy the other day (btw, I live in italy), asking for a basal thermometer, and the pharmacist said that I would be better off getting this 'persona' machine. From what I can understand, according to the hormones in my pee, it tells me good days for BD'ing. TBH since i have decided to help my miracle along, my dh has been a bit pooped!!! Apparently he is just not used to so much attention!!! (can't believe he is complaining but never mind about that!!!). So to give dh a bit of a break and to get a better idea what is going on, I thought one of these machines might be a good idea. What I am wanting to know is, does anyone recommend any particular machine? My cycles have always been pretty regular from 27 - 29 days. Also, this may be a silly question, but do these machines really know when you are ovulating? Can your hormones go alter correctly, yet no egg pop out? I know you girls are all experts on this stuff, horrid when we have to be experts in subject we don't want to be right.

I wish all you lovely people lots and lots of babydust and may we all get our BFP that we deserve. Thanks in advance for any info you can give me.

Hi K

I don't know much about fertility monitors but I do think charting will be good for you in that you will find out exactly what day you ovulate on and will tell you about your luteal phase too. Just means taking your temp each morning before getting up around the same time each day.
Of course for the first month it will not help you indicate when ovulation will take place but you could get the ovulation sticks and use these also.

Good luck

Hi Kate,

I will try to answer your questions as briefly as I can - although I don't do 'brief' very well.

"I have been lurking around the IVF forums... My reason for IVF is blocked tubes ..Well I am hoping for a miracle!!! Miracles can happen" - Yes they do occasionally, even women who are sterilised and bits cut out of their tubes and taken away, still (very occasionally ) get pregnant. But it is also good to feel that you are doing something for yourself.

"one of these ovulation monitors...this 'persona' machine." This is just a way of recording information about your cycle instead of writing it out on a graph or piece of paper. It keeps a record of your results and indicates when the hormone changes say you SHOULD be ovulating.

"according to the hormones in my pee, it tells me good days for BD'ing." - Yes exactly - just that, no magic measurements, just the same ones that everyone else does but the machine corellates these for you.

"my dh has been a bit pooped!!!" - but don't try too often as his semen volume will go down with too frequent ejaculation (more than 3 or 4 times in a week perhaps), and the volume will become too small for ideal performance in your vagina and cervix.

"What I am wanting to know is, does anyone recommend any particular machine?" - I don't think there is much difference between these.

"My cycles have always been pretty regular from 27 - 29 days. Also, this may be a silly question, but do these machines really know when you are ovulating?" - No they don't, they can only work out approximately when your LH surge says you MIGHT be ovulating, and therefore when you should be putting in sperm. - And I can work that one out even though you are in Italy and I am in Liverpool. On a 27-29 day cycle and assuming that you have a standard luteal phase of around 13-15 days, making love three times between days 12 and 17 will ensure that you have sperm around the whole time that an egg is likely to appear. You also make love 2-3 times early in the cycle and similarly later in the cycle as this helps to improve hormones and blood flow for good ovulation and good implantation.

"Can your hormones go alter correctly, yet no egg pop out?" - Yes, if your LH surge does not go high enough for your ovaries to be adequately stimulated then they will not ovulate despite your seeing a surge. So you need some independent proof that you DO ovulate. Seeing mucus change from abruptly from EWCM to cloudy, and being aware that your cervix has closed again, is encouraging. Getting a progesterone over 30 nmol/L a week after your LH surge is even better.

Good luck

I am due to ovulate in a week.

It seems so strange because this is my shortest cycle. I'm used to 40+ day cycles.

This Angus Cactus is doing some good by the looks of things. Just hope i get a BFP soon x

Totally agree Erkani, too much bad news lately

Have given up testing and analysing symptoms so thought (wrongly) that I would be rewarded and get a lovely BFP!

It will come sweetie...and as the wise one's always say..it will come when you least expect it. I love the way people always say, stop thinking about it..... Yeah Right! easier said than done....They clearly haven't suffered like us have they! When it is the first thing and last thing you think about daily...just how exactly should we stop thinking about it? I reckon I will even go through menapause, come out the other end and STILL expect that one day it will happen!!!!!!!!! Arrrgghhh!!!!!

My good preg friend really peed me off last month (she's due in July) when I txt to tell her another BFN, she said have you tried doing it every other day? I was gobsmacked! What does she think we've been doing? :cross: oh dear should I put this in the rant corner? he he :snigger:

She has also been know to tell me (that old chestnut) to forget about it! I give up! Just cos it only took her 6 months to get preg!

Yeah I still hope even when Af comes, I think of all those stories where girls had Af and were preg! :rolleyes:

Some people can really say the wrong thing at the wrong time. The 4 out of 5 couples that don't experience our kind of problems will never know how it feels, and therefore will never know the right thing to say. Which is simply...'sorry'. People think they have to give advice to make us feel better....they don't.

Hi guys,

I know the feeling of needing a stern talking to. EVERY month i have been convinced i'm pregnant becuase i get the signs, read on the internet and think myself as a bloody doctor, although it's always been BFN

As for people saying the wrong thing, i know all about that too. And everyone aroound me seems to be pregnant.

Got a horrible situation at work at the moment. One of the girls thinks she is pregnant because she is 3 weeks late, and the other girl in the office is trying for a baby too. So soon there will be 2 of them pregnant and me still not. :sadface:

The one girl who's trying is irritating me something rotten. Always talking to me about it saying she can't get pregnant although she has only been trying 2 months
