ok i know ive said im going to take a break for the next 2 months because i was starting to go a little batty after 5 months plus i dont want to have an august baby (just a preference) but heres the thing. when i first started using fertility friend, i used opks. they showed positive a bit earlier than the 'projected' dates. for 4 months though, i have not used opks again, i just went by the chart on fertility friend. i am not taking my temp but have been doing the every other day thing. heres my question...even though im on a break i still wanted to continue charting so i used opks this month, (i have a 26 day cycle) on CD9 (my first anticipated fertile day) i got the weakest line on the opk, the next day it was still faint but ever so slightly darker than the day before, on CD11 which should have been the surge...completely negative....what is going on? am i not ovulating every month? could that be our problem? ty for the input.

i forgot to mention that the other times i used an opk i got definite positives, test line was much much darker than the control line. in addition, my physician asked me how long we are going to try before getting tested, i told him a year, is that too long? ok thats it for the questions lol

it all depends on your age cause as we age the harder it can be to fall pregnant............... your best to test at about 2pm as long as you can hold your pee for awhile b4 just like you should do with a preg test............ its upto you and your partner if you think your ready for a fertility specialist ...... im 34 now and and i now wish i went to a specialist along time ago ..... hubby and i are considering ivf for early next year if im not prego b4 then been trying for 8 years now long story but anyway ....hope ive been helpful and not too confusing :)

ty bell, im sorry it has been so difficult for you and dh. i personally would not do ivf, im one of those if its meant to be it will be people, im not going to put my body through all sorts of treatments to try and force the issue. but i will test to see where the problem is and if it is something simple like dh is 'clogged' or high v____al pH then ok we can fix that.
