    Hi Bonnie, it's likely that charting your cycle with an App like fertility friend and combining basal temps with OPK's and cervical mucous will give you a much more accurate picture of ovulating and your cycle. Perhaps do this for say 4months and if no luck that would make 12 months of TTC and a trip to the GP or fertility specialist might be warranted. Good luck!

    So you're not getting a positive? How frequently are you testing?
    We just conceived and that month I thought I ovulated earlier cd 13/14 ( opt were negative but body was showing other signs) anyway a week later I did an opt and it was positive.
    Dates match to the later date

    Remember opks will only predict ovulation may occur in the next 12-36hrs after a positive. They do not confirm if ovulation has happened or not. Temping bbt is a good way to confirm ovulation has occured.

    And to add to everything everyone has said, maybe think of getting your partners sperm tested

    Your GP will probably refer you to an OBGYN fertility specialist if you ask. There are other things to consider first you jump to worst case problems. Your age, your medical history, lifestyle, current health and your partners details as well. Your GP can help you work though that with tests etc if you have that relationship. Or else go to an OBGYN. If it's stressing you out, I say do something about it. Good luck!

    Go straight to your gp! They may,send you for an internal ultrasound to check if u have pcos which is a cause of no ovulation. I had this done and was told I did so I went on clomid which makes u ovulate. U can still get ur period and not actually o or very weakly o. I was getting o pains and all but o wasn't actually doing anything!
