    Default TTC for 3 years, excited to meet people in the same boat!

    Hi all!
    I am in a same sex relationship and I have been trying to conceive via AI for about 3 years with no such luck. I have PCOS which makes tracking things a bit hard, and in the process of getting some natural energy healing and taking up mediatation and yoga.
    I am using the maybe baby saliva test and I have found that it starts to fern on cycle day 11 onwards, but having an average 35 day cycle I shouldnt be ovulating until day 16-21 apparently. IM SO CONFUSED. Has anyone else had random positive tests a week before actual ovulation? Im trying to ignore it and just do an insemination on the days i "should' be ovulating to see if we have any luck. I dont feel bloated or crampy like I usually do, so could this just be a random hormone surge or something? any suggestions? xxx

    Hey there @GoldDustWoman. Similar situation here... same sex relationship, PCOS, long cycles etc. Anyway we are doing IVF but have had no luck yet. When i tried using maybe baby, i frequently had ferns, and at random times as well, so we decided that was not going to work for us.

    Hey Kazzy, Im so glad to chat to someone in a similar situation, but sorry you have had a rough journey too Ive tried the ov test strips as well as the saliva test, and also the basal thermometer, NOTHING seems to work? very frustrating. I guess its time to just go by 'gut' feeling when I know I am ovulating.
    Would love to chat more, and I'd love to join the same sex parenting forum- perfect!
