I did really find temp taking revealing. It gave me a clearer picture of when I ovulated and I knew if I was getting my period. So, you take it every single morning before you even get out of bed. I just had a cheap digital under the tongue thermometer. I would jot down the temp on a chart. And a clear patter emerges. Your temp should raise a full degree when you ovulate. It stays that full degree higher until you get your next period. So, I would know my period was about to start as my temp would drop back down. The only two times it didn't was when I had successfully gotten pregnant! It just gives a better idea of your cycle which is helpful in timing sex. My doctor also recommends that you track your cycle. First day of period is cycle day 1. Then count from there. On day 10 of your cycle, begin having sex EVERY OTHER day for the next 10 days (longer if you have a longer than average cycle). This normally gives you a good chance of catching the egg.
Oh, thanks for the additional details. Helpful. So, in all seriousness, don't wait long. First time babies at 44 are trickier to have. You will want to switch to a fertility specialist pretty quickly. Especially with an issue of hormonal imbalance. And coming off mirena and progesterone. Clomid is something that stimulates egg release. The issue with our age is that we have fewer eggs as we get older any way. So, they'd probably want to check that. It takes the average couple with no issues to conceive about a year to do so. But I would not wait that long. Give yourself six months of trying on your own and then hit the fertility doctor. And maybe even consider ramping it up to artificial insemination at that time.
This is not to worry you! It's just a bit of a time crunch as you know. Sure fun trying but I want you to be successful!!
Hi there. So, I'm trying to understand where you are at with trying to conceive and with usage of provera. Do you get a period without it normally? What day of your cycle does your doctor normally have you start it on and do you take it for 10 days? Are you working with your doctor? This is not your first baby that you are trying to have? Sorry for all the questions. lol Just trying to get a feel for things with you. Are you also using clomid?
Here's an older thread with a lot of women talking about this. https://www.medhelp.org/posts/Womens-Health/prescribed-Provera-while-trying-to-get-pregnant/show/29098
