I must recommend the book "taking charge of your fertility" for helpful info. If you've read the book, follow its tips, and continue to experience infertility after another year, see a reproductive endocrinologist. Your public profile says you're 22 (male?) which gives you plenty of time to figure it all out.

Around day 7 start tracking your BBTs (this tracks whether you actually ovulate) and day 10 start using OPKs - the one with the digital smiley face (this measures the pre-ovulation hormones).  I found that I didn't ovulate until day 16, and here we were trying much earlier at days 12-14. That book mentioned in my earlier post is golden!

I know alot of terms for ttc but I am not familure with BBT, or OPK? I have been using clear blue ovulatoin tests and they are great but how do I test for pre ovulation?

BBT is basal body temperature. BBTs will show a pattern of low temps leading through ovulation and high temps once you've ovulated. OPK is ovulation predictor kit. OPKs only detect a rise in a certain hormone, but don't actually prove you've ovulated. That's why it's important to do both. BBTs are also incredibly helpful to know if you're pregnant, expecting AF, or if something isn't quite functioning as it should - all based on these temps. Good luck with whatever method you use! Baby dust to you!!
