Hi~ I had a m/c at 4 months in Aug. We are still not pregnant. I do not think I am ovulating. I had used the ovulation stick since Sept with no luck. I am trying to get all the info on this stuff. I got pg the first month with my son and the first month with the baby I m/c. Now it seems I am just not ovulating. Anyone have an opinion or a similar situation? I could really use so advice. my Dr appt is March 6

First of all, I'm so sorry for your loss. I can relate as I've also suffered a m/c. We concieved our twins right after our m/c. In my opinion, I think it's great that you have used the Ovulation sticks. That will make you better prepared when asking him. He may put you through a battery of tests before putting you on Clomid or any other a__sitance in concieving, but I do want to remind you that most Dr.'s say to try for 1 year unprotected and that in that time 80% of couples will concieve. So, don't be discouraged if he asks you to keep trying for a bit longer. I have PCOS and I don't ovulate on my own - never have, so I know how frustrating it is when trying to have a child and it's not happening. Good luck with your Dr. appt.

Hi Amyx. I'm so sorry to hear about your m/c. It is never an easy thing to deal with, & nI'm not preaching here. I've had may loses & I still think about every one of those children. However the jump to clomid may not always be the answer. So many factors can effect you not being about to conceive again right now. Ov sticks/kits are notoriously wrong. There are many woman on this site who have been unsuccessful with them. Besides they only let you know that you are or have ovulated & that can be too late. You & you partner may also be putting presure on yourselves to conceive again & we all know that the more strain we're under the less our bodies respond. If you really feel that you're not ovulating, speak to your doctor about testing first. Sometimes a simple & quick blood test can uncover so much. Please don't feel like I'm attacking your choice to ask for clomid. I just hope you don't need it & all will turn out well for you. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. Good luck.

You know, I don't even know how well those sticks even work. They never showed anything for me. I knew that I was around the time I should be ovulating even though the stick said no (I was having a ton of CM). We BD anyway and I got pregnant with twins. I wonder how accurate they are.


MelissaSLP - February 27

I agree that the sticks are not always accurate. We had a lot of months that we were told I was ovulating the whole month or that I didn't ovulate at all. Again, talk to your Dr. and see if he feels additional testing is needed. I agree with Corona in that the stress may be part of it. Good luck and keep us posted.
