I only temped the 1 month (because I got a BFP) but I really liked it. Coming off the pill it reassured me I was ovulating.
Also because my cycles were 49 then 31 days I had no idea when it would all happen. On the 3rd month it said i ovulated on day 22, which also confirmed my other symptom of really sensitive nipples around that time of month which was the give away as well.
I will def be temping again 😊 plus it's easier to do than opks they are so ambiguous I found.
Thanks Gemima, its really nice to have some were so supportive. Its really hard to talk to hubby has i dont think he really understands how much this effects us. I do have a fairly high stress job... I think i will give it a little longer as I think AF might finally be on her way i have been pmsing like crazy. Insane moods swings, atm which was always a classic sign for me but if notjing in another two weeks I think i will go. I actually have found a really lovely dr who seems to know what shes talking about so I think she will help. I will keep you posted.
Its such a cruel joke of nature when a woman body doesn't do the one thing its supposed to do.
@twentysomething it can be really stressful when our bodies don't do what we want them to and the time when we are waiting for it to happen can feel so long!
How many cycles have you been off the pill for now and if this isn't your first one how long have they been?
If your family has a history I would go to the doc and explain your situation and say that you would like to rule these out sooner rather than later, it is your right to ask this. You will probably find that your doctor is really great
Update on me at the moment - still waiting for the miscarriage to flush out of my system. I had a blood test last night so will get my levels back and see what they are, hopefully low! The bleeding seems to have subsided which is good but I have heard it can come back? I only bled for 6 days, seems short but maybe not, hopefully not!
When I get my blood results will ask when we can start ttc again, I am think I will have to wait for at least 1 cycle - that feels like forever away!!! 😢
So just realised I may have been testing with the OPK too early in the day?? Thought I was meant to do it with first urine of the day but have now read otherwise. Just
wondering when you test if you use them? Thanks girls xx
P.s don't have instructions as they were given to me from a girl from work who used them for one month and fell pregnant so had a heap left over - they are still in date.
This is my first cycle, well attempted cycle of the pill i stopped taking it on March 20 had my with draw bleed and have had nothing since then, so now at 48 days. which I know not totally terrible since I did just stop contraception but a little disheartening I have done two preg next to be sure and so far Bfn. I thought I might wait till the end of this month and see what happens.
I have been feeling very bloated and crampy the last few days so hoping this might be a good sign. as bloating is usually a sign for me. I have been VERY weepy burst into tear yesterday at work! VERy unlike me lol so I am hoping this is my body trying to sort it's self out and I just need to remain patient which I am desperately trying to!
However with my history of irregular periods and my sisters pcos and I am quietly a little worried and sad. As I guess like every one here I was hoping a one month try and OH LOOk i'm pregnant never mind. good things come to those that wait. But I dont wont to jump to conclusions just yet.
I hope you get back to normal soon and can start TTC again!
Much love xo
