    Default Go for it or wait it out??

    We're TTC with male factor fertility issues, so we usually try to wait until a positive OPK and then DTD (so 'save them up' for a few days beforehand). I ran out of my oracle OPKs and used a spare FR one which I don't like as much. It was negative but I have horrible O pain and heaps of EWCM so I'm worried if we hold off we'll miss it! Should I wait another day? Or should we get busy??

    I would go for it i don't think the tests are always right i never got positives on them at ovulation time and the doctor told me they don't always work.

    Well, we were unsuccessful
    I ended up getting a +OPK 2 days later so probably should have waited. It's hard to know what to do sometimes.

    On to cycle 9, sigh

    Remember sperm can live up to five days inside. So it's not over yet

    AF arrived yesterday so it's definitely over unfortunately!

    I saw my GP today to follow up a back injury and ended up spilling about our TTC troubles so he's referred us to the fertility specialist. Made an appointment and we see the FS in a month.
