Another Ovulation Question

Ok, here is another question I think I already know the answer too, but I am going to ask so I can feel more confident about it. I will probably ask my dr tomorrow anyway! I ovulated after my m/c on Fri. (or atleast thats when I had fertile cm and cramped and got a bfp on my opk) When can I bd again without the risk of getting pregnant. I was thinking Monday, but would that be risking it? I don't want to get pg since the dr told me she would rather me wait. But I am allergic to latex so condoms are out of the question and I am worried pulling out would be risky as well (sorry tmi!) . Any advice? Thanks!!

You are considered infertile on the 4th night after the cm ends. There are non-latex condoms out there and they are more expensive, but would be an option. We simply wait, usually, instead of using anything. Sometimes the waiting makes it better when we can bd again. And case in point, I am pregnant again right after a m/c w/ no AF between because we didn't wait and used a condom, thinking we would be fine. Apparently not. So if you are serious about following your doctor's orders, it might be best to wait for a few more days. On the other hand, since you are using opks, I'd a__sume (but I'm not sure) that once they are negative again, it would be safe. Somebody else might be able to help you with that.

thanks for the advice. Me and dh really hate using protection anway. We have looked at those non latex condoms but the only ones we found we rather pricey. Anyway I really don't want to have a mc again. So I think we will wait until maybe tuesday, does that sound good?? I dont know maybe wed??

Hi Megan! I used a fertility monitor to get pregnant and it considered you fertile the first day of your LH surge and the 2 days following. But some say even the 3rd day there is still a chance so be careful. You can tell by your body signs though by looking for your cm. I am in the same boat as you. My dh and I are just staying away from each other for a bit. Not easy!!!

It isn't easy. Especially when I have had bleeding and spotting for the past 3 1/2 weeks. So more waiting!! I don't have any o signs at all anymore. I took an opk last night and it only had a control line, not even a faint test line. So I guess if I o on Fri. then we should wait until tue or so. I think I am going to call my dr and ask her! Thanks so much!!

LOL, you ladies crack me up! (I'm not being mean, just remembering how it was once. Out of curiosity, are you married less than five years?) . . .Think about this. . . once you have a baby, you can't have any s_x at all (none!) for SIX weeks! And you won't care because you will be so tired and sore!! Once you get the green light, you won't be able to have any good long sessions because you'll always be wondering if the baby will wake in the middle! LOL!! I'm sometimes amazed we've been able to make two babies since DS's birth with his non-sleeping habits!. . . Anyhow, if you are sure you have ovulated Friday, you can bd Tuesday night; if you aren't sure or don't use an opk, wait 4 days after the cm is gone. Meanwhile, use the waiting time to get the interest going or do something else without genital-to-genital contact. The non-latex condoms are expensive, but if you really can't wait or aren't sure of your ovulation date, they are worth it. Have fun :)

Hi Susan! We have only been married for a year and 4 months. :-) We haven't bd since our conception date of December 18. I was just not up to it (knowing I was going to m/c and everything). Now i am really ready, but just waiting for af to show after my D & C. Also, my dr. told me there was a small chance it was a partial molar pregnancy so we really can't mess up. Then I would be in real trouble if it was a molar pregnancy. We figured the best thing to do is just avoid it. I am so happy for you that you are pregnant again. I know everything will go well. Good luck! You are my inspiration.

we have been married for less than 5 yrs. 1 year and 2 months. Although I hope I desires for eachother never change, they may with time. My DH's parents have been married for 37 years and they always tells us it was 37 pa__sionate years. It is still new to both of us in a way. We waited until marriage to have s_x and have only had s_x with eachother. So it is so special to know you share that with just that one person out of all the people on the planet!! It is a very special gift God gives us. Birth control gave me a REALLY low s_x drive, so the past 4 months I have been off have been nice, but the past month of that has been hard with the mc and now this waiting for o to pa__s. I think the 6 wk wait will definately be worth it, I mean you do get one of the greatest gifts out of it!! Your child!! Thanks for the advice!! : )

We were the same way, didn't sleep with anyone else and waited till marriage. We've been married 13 years now. Pa__sion changes with time, we found, from the crazy in love at first to a deep understanding, which is what has gotten us through a lot of very difficult times over the last 13 years . . . .. And having kids puts a damper on things too, unless that's just my kid! LOL Hope you guys are having some fun (safely for now).

we are having fun! 13 years is a long time. people ask us if the honeymoon period is over, and I really never think we had one. We have just always acted like we have been together forever. It is not so much the s_x I guess just that we are best friends and do everything together. But the s_x is good! (sorry tmi) I think it is just natural to lose some of the pa__sion escpecially after 13 yrs! Good luck with your pregnancy!
