Hello ladies, this might be a long post but please if you could read and help me out that would be amazing.
My partner and I have been ttc since march (I know its not that long but I'm starting to get worried) I got off BC in Feb since then my cycles have found their pattern but its too long! 44 days on average. Last cycle was 40 days. The waiting feels like years then when AF shows up I'm crushed. I try not to stress too much but the worry is building up. I'm terrified of anaovulary cycles. I'm not overly overweight maybe 5-10kgs but having the long cycles scares me. And AF is usually very heavy on day one (I had been putting this down to having such a long cycle but now I don't know)
We decided that this cycle would be the one that we tried almost anything (by almost I mean I Dont temp. Only because my temps are normally all over the place) so I bought a pack of 40 OPKs online, a maybe baby saliva tester and sperm friendly gel. From the day AF left I started them all. We are BDing every second day no matter what just incase. Every day I've had ferns on the saliva yester so I guess that's not accurate for me. And the cheap OPKs gave me two postives that were way to early. One on 19/08 and one on 22/08 due to long cycles I shouldn't be Oing until early September. So for the last week I've been using a clearblue digital ovulation test. No smiley face yet. We've also been taking conception vitamins, drinking fertility tea and eating loads of fruit and veg.
I'm feeling super lost and a little bit broken. So any positive stories from long cycles or advise please send my way!
