TTC For Almost A Year Officially-This Cycle Started provera To Induce Period And Clomid Days 5-9 To Induce Ovulation. I'm Just Looking Specifically For Answers OR Thoughts Or Advice related To My Specific Questions And concerns. My Husband And I BD On CD 12, 14, 16 And 17 But He Had To Go Out Of Town Suddenly And We Couldn't Anymore. The Thing Is, I Got A peak Fertility Ovulation Reading On Clearblue advanced Digital Ovulation Test On CD 17 (Which We Did BD on) But I Could "Feel" OvulatOry symptoms Late CD 18 And CD 19 like Increased Libido And fertile cervical Mucous But We Were Unable To Have Sex. So My Question Is, Can You Get Pregnant Only Having Sex The Week Before Ovulation and Not Exactly During Ovulation? Is This Month completely Wasted Because I ovulated Late And We Couldn't Have Sex During Exact Ovulation? what Are My Chances Of Getting Pregnant This Cycle? Please Help!

i had the mirena iud for 4 1/2 years and it was taken out july 24, 2013 and we have been trying since then.  This July will make exactly a year and I have not gotten pregnant yet.  My doctor done blood work on me feb 28th and it came back that i am ovulating so i guess its going to take time.  I have a little boy that will be 6 in september but i am ready for another one.  i have downloaded a period tracker on my cell phone to keep up with my ovulation days but that has not worked yet even though i make sure i have intercourse ever other day that it is says i am ovulating.  I will keep my fingers crossed for both of us and I hope that I do not see my cycle on june 1st.  That is when i am suppose to start again.  My period during the month of may was very very light and lasted 2 days.  BABY DUST TO ALL OF US!!!

When would be a good day to do blood work to test if we even ovulating?


I got a positive on the opk on May 11th and did blood work on May 16th to see if I even ovulated, but the results said I did not ovulate. Did I tested too early?

What day In Your Cycle Did You Get Tested? Most Doctors Have You Tested Between Days 21-25. Like I Said In A Previous Comment, My Ovulation Was Confirmed By BloodWork I Had Taken On day 21

My period was April 21-29 and on May 11th I got positive on the ovulation kit then blood work on May 16th.  I don't know how many cycles I have.  It's May 30th now and I still don't have a period.  

I had a misscarriage in Feb.

Cycle Days Not Cycles. April 21 Would Be Cycle Day One.

You Were Tested On Day 21 Of Your Cycle Which Is Accurate And Not Too Early. If The Dr Said No Ovulation Then You Didn't Ovulate Which Is Why Your Period Is Late. He May Offer To Put You On A Medicine That Will "Jump Start" Your Period If you Don't Want To Wait around For One To Show Up Naturally. Since You Didn't Ovulate, You Won't Be Pregnant And Your Period Will Be Late And May Only Show Up Lightly If At All. I Struggled With This Until My Dr Put Me On Provera To Start My Period And Clomid To Induce Ovulation.

i Always Update, No one Helps. It's Very Frustrating. And Not Knowing What Is Going On With My Body Is Even More Frustrating! Almost cycle Day 33 And 15 Days After Confirmed Ovulation And No Period. If I'm Not Pregnant Like The 29 Negative Pregnancy Tests Suggest, Then What Is Going On??

Two Days Late. CD 34, confirmed Ovulation For Day18 So 16 Dpo. 30 Negative Pregnancy Tests. Yes, 30. I Am Supposed To Wait Two Weeks After Missed Period And No Positive test Before confirming With Blood Tests. I Don't Understand Why My Period Is Late If I'm Not Pregnant Because I Have Confirmed Ovulation!

i just ordered Fertilaid for Women from Walgreens offline and it should be here on Thursday.  You are suppose to take them 3 times a day and everything that I have read about it says that women have gotten pregnant between 1-2 months of taking them so I am going to start taking them as soon as I get them on Thursday.  I will let you know how it goes.  My period only ended up lasting about 24 hrs and I dont understand that at all.  VERY CONFUSING!!!!

I Tried Something Similar Called UConceive but when I finally Received It And Looked At The ingredients, It Wasn't Anything I Wasn't Already Getting From My Multi vitamins. And The Research I've Done from Accredited Books say They Don't Work And It'S A Waste Of Money

My Doctor Wants Me To Wait Another Week so I'd Be Almost Two Weeks Late. I KNOW I'm Not Pregnant And No Explanation Why I Have No Period With Confirmed Ovulation. And Even Though I've Only Had One Round Of Clomid He Wants To Switch Me To Femara Because It "Works better" But I Can't Find any Incidences Where It's Given To A Woman Without Pcos. Anyone? Also Her Says I Can Start It Without A Period. What?! Someone Help.
