I just wanted to introduce myself after a few months of lurking, because I think that our fertility journey has reached a point where I need to reach our for some help and advice.
Mr B and I got married in August last year, and I honestly thought I'd be pregnant immediately. Ha!
After well over ten years on the Pill, I gave myself a couple of months to let my cycles sort themselves out as I remembered from pre-Pill days that they were long and irregular. Since then my cycles have been 35, 44, 36 and 31 days, and this cycle I am now on CD 42. I started temping in November and know that I have only Od twice since then (using BBT and CM) - and not at all this cycle.
A US on 2 Feb showed a 12mm follicle that the sonographer told me would be ready in a week. That was more than three weeks ago and so far no ewcm, no temp rise, no sore boobs .. and two BFNs.
I know my LP is short - ten days at the most and 8-10 on average (and 6 on one cycle depending on where you start counting my period from). I suspect this is really our problem.
The US confirmed no PCO, and I have had blood tests (no results yet) for hormonal issues. Mr B is off next week to get his part of the testing done *ahem*.
So there we are. I am preparing for Vit B6 and progesterone to help my LP if that's what my doctor recommends, and maybe Clomid. I am not despairing but this is not at all what I had imagined. I am finally writing this post so I can talk with you all (and not continually go on to the small number of IRL friends who might understand this!). I hope I can ask questions of you and maybe offer some support to you in return.
Any advice on short LP, irregular cycles and how to keep sane very welcome!
Looking forward to 'meeting' you all
