    I would love for the OPK to be picking up hcg but I am not sure if that is the case because I tested the day before and it was Negative
    I have made a doctors appointment for next Monday, hopefully I wont get the 'wait 12 months' - probably will though
    Hi, how long have u ben trying or now? im taking a stab in the dark here & saying this is ur 1stbabyur trying for? is ur cycle around the same time or is it hit & miss some months? I got referred around 9mths of trying as I only had maybe 2-3 AF's in that time & I had very painful AF's. If u can see a GP that listens to u & not their wallet then u might be able to see a specialist sooner than 12mths.



    AFM: I had a + OPK on cd29 with a smiley face (clearblue brand) but the next day no smiley...is this normal?? I cant remember

    @larazie This is our first, we have not been trying long - only 4 months - it's the length of my cycles that has me worried, and now the OPK results (did not think it was possible to ovulate twice in a cycle???? - more than a week apart) I did finish the pill not long ago either (March) which I know could be the reason why.
    When AF comes it is painful enough that I have to take the day or 2 off work (back/belly pain as well a numb legs) in saying that they only last 4 days too.

    @vague sorry to jump in here - I just happened to read this thread. I'd suggest going to your GP and asking for a referral to a specialist once you've had some fairly standard blood tests/ultrasounds.

    Your cycle length sounds really long to me and regardless of how long you've been trying your GP should listen to you even if it's just asking for an investigation into your wacky cycles.

    I had a wacky cycle last year (66days) after always being like clockwork. I got it investigated and I'm really glad I did otherwise I'd be so much further behind where I am now (IVF) - which isn't meant to scare you, but I do think that women are told to wait much longer than is necessary.

    The statistics of "most women fall pregnant within a year of trying" are based on women randomly trying - not the ones really paying attention and cycle tracking and using OPKs.

    There's a great ebook I loved when I was TTC called the Impatient Woman's Guide to a Getting Pregnant - really good clear info in there.

    And if your GP doesn't play ball, get a new GP. You can probably get a recommendation from someone in your area who understands fertility issues.

    Best of luck.

    Thanks so much @ScubaGal . I was scared to open up on this forum in case people thought I was being precious and a bit crazy about it!

    unfortunately for me as I live in a remote area there is not such thing as a specialist, and a routine ultrasound is a 6 hour round trip - I think that is why most GP's here have a 'wait and see' attitude - I will travel to another town though if the doctors here aren't interested

    No worries @vague
    This is the book i mentioned: http://www.impatientwoman.com

    It will arm you with some real statistics about how long women generally take to conceive, and its an all round helpful and rather funny book.

    I don't think you're being precious about it, and I don't think any of us are being precious. It's a fact that for women with endometriosis (what I have) the average time between onset and diagnosis is ten years - because women often aren't taken seriously with their concerns about their own bodies. Again - I'm not trying to come across as scaremongering, but I do think there is a difference between randomly not using contraception for a year and being fairly clueless about timing, and cycle tracking + OPKs.

    I'll PM you with some other ideas too - definitely try to approach your GP about it as a 'cycle health concern' so you don't get palmed off with the 'wait a year' response.

    Best of luck to all the TTC'ers on this thread.
