I have had the same thing on the OPKs!! I feel like I just want to throw them out the window!! I got a + the first month I used it, but i have not gotten one yet. My cycle in June was 43 days long. It was rough. I also had cramps the whole time, and I kept thinking AF would come! I told myself that I would call the doctor after 2 weeks if AF didn't come, and then it came 13 days late. Did you doctor say there is any chance you are pg and tested too soon? Or did he say you just need to wait for AF? My cycles are not usually normal. They have been around 28-32 days with that one 43 day cycle. I have a doctors appt on Oct. 12th to see if there is something going on that is preventing me from getting pg because she told me to come back after 6 months, so we will see how that goes! I am currently waiting for those stupid OPKs to be positive Smile

I hope something happens for you soon, so you can figure out what is going on. If it helps at all my cycle after the 43 day one was very normal...28 days (and I got my first +OPK!), so maybe that gives you hope for the next cycle?

Hey everyone....glad to see this forum revived. Us 20's gotta stick together. lol! I am 28 and ttcing for my second child. I have also been ttcing since March of this year so we must all be kindred spirits. As far as the late aF goes, your ovulation depicts when you will have af. If you expect to O on cd (cycle day) 17 but instead O on cd 21 then AF will be 4 days late and so on and so forth. So....your cycle could not be late, it could be on time b/c O was late.I am not sure if you still get af if you dont O. I will research that and tell you what I find out.

Where is everyone at in their cycles. I am on cd 9, and expecting ovulation on cd 17 of this month. I have been taking the ferilaid, three times a day for this month....someting new I added for this month. I let my prenatal vitamin go for this month to see if I get different results with the fertilaid. I am also drinking the fertile tea this month, starting today. I have been forgettng to drink it so I am starting late but better late than never. Hope to talk with you guys more thru this journey.

I love that we all started TTC about the same time, how fun that we can all talk eachother through this! I just had a quant taken on Monday and it was only 0.4, so the Dr told me there wasnt really a chance I was pregnant. So I have been trying to figure this one out, I've done so much research on it (even asked the dr) and have gotten different answers. So since I am late with my AF does that mean I am not going to O until I get it? Its just so confusing, I have decided I am going to start charting my BBT this month, I havent done it before but its worth a try. I have a Dr appt next Thurday if I still havent started and they might put me on provera? I think thats what it is, hopefully thats not the case, I am crossing my fingers it comes soon!
Yes the OPK are so annoying sometimes! I bought the one the have here on the website to try this month, I was using the answer brand and couldnt EVER get a clear answer, so I was reading up alittle bit and read that alot of people had the same issues with that brand so maybe this month I will have better luck, what kind are you guys using?
Well so far I am 9 days late, so I am just so lost on where I am at with my cycle lol.
Should I wait to use my OPK until my AF comes or just act like this is any other month and continue them?

Just researched and found an article that said no ovulation means no af. u should keep using opks bc u could either be ovulating now or in the near future. I use the opks from this site and they have worked good for me thus far. Use opks and keep bding until u see af. This is the website I found...http://www.thelaboroflove.com/articles/having-your-period-when-ovulation-has-not-occurred/. Hope this answers your questions a bit.

Hi, Ladies!

My name is Liz and DH have been TTC since July. I went off my BCP in April and we ditched the "alternative methods" in June for birthday. July was really the first month we actually BD'ed. Smile Anyway... I'm 29 and DH is 28. I have been tracking my BBT since I went off the pill in April. I had regular cycles right off the bat, my shortest being 26 days (once) and the rest generally being 27 or 28. I'm waiting for my FertiliAid to arrive to start that this month. I've been worried that luteal phase isn't long enough so I want to extend my cycle which will hopefully thereby extend my LP. So FX!

Good luck this month everyone!!

So this morning I started back up with my OPK and go a faint line, waited until tonight and the are exactly the same! I can never ever get a clear answer from these tests! I will see a line for a few days, never darker then the other and then it goes away within a few days, I just dont know If i take that as a yes or no! Ugh just so frustrated!

Welcome to this forum Ivi, I have spoken with you in other forums as well. Nice to see that you came over and joined us. baby dust your way for this month. Hopefully the fertilaid will give you a boost.

Natasha-Are you following the directions properly? Not to sound like I am questioning you, just giving advice. The tests have to be done after 11:00 a.m., with the best readings at aroun 3 p.m. or so. I get faint test lines like that when I test before or after O, but two to three days before i expect to O the test line gets extemely dark where without a doubt I know its time. I can take pictures of my positives this mont and post them for you to see so that you can see what a positive and negative looks like. This will give you somthing to go by when judging....if you like. Stay strong...use other indicators like your cm and bbt charting. This works for a lot of women as well.

I would love if you could! I have never got one that I just new were positive! But I could have been testing wrong, I have been using them every month since March but I was testing at like 8. So today I did test at 12 and then again at 6. Since I didnt AF this month I just started testing about the time I would have if I did, so maybe the faint line is leading up to O and maybe testing at the right time might give me a positive one!! I just started charting bbt this month, didnt think I was going to need to so I didnt start it right after I stopped bc, which I am regreting now!

Dont worry, it is never too late to start the process. Also, I expect to O around Tuesday of next week so when I get my positive I will take a pic of it and then a few days later I will take a pic of my negative and show you that as well.
