RyEmsMum - Welcome! You poor thing look at the cycle you are having! Are you doing OPKs? Your temps stay up for a good 18+ days!
FutureMa - Arrrghh! Where are you?? Have you Peed???? LMAO
AFM - Well looks like I had a 2.5 day AF *sigh* come on witchy get your act together. Well now the guessing game begins. When will I O this month??? Last month was CD11/12 and the month before was CD22. Crazyness! OK, I'm still seeing a Long cycle/Short Cycle/Long/Short pattern & so would be on the long cycle this time. So I am predicting O to be between CD16-22 , hoping for CD16

I've just checked out your chart and it appear that you O late AND you have a short LP (luteal phase).
I had this too!! And it can mean that you have low progesterone and may mean your body can't hold onto a BFP even if you do conceive.
This month, I started taking Vitex and a B Complex vitamin which contains 50mg B6. The Vitex is supposed to help your body to produce a stronger O and help your progesterone levels. The B Complex helps with lengthening your luteal phase so the bubba can stick. I take one Vitex capsule 1000mg first thing in the morning before breakfast and I take the B Complex with my other vitamins at lunch time with food.
So far, I have O'd 6 days earlier (CD18) and I'm currently on 9 DPO with no spotting
Maybe this something to give a go before you go down the clomid route??

I was a bit gutted this week, my bf and I were due for af the same time (before my body started playing up) and she got a bfp, and I was all excited because obviously my af didn't show up either, so happy for her, but sad for me as I been trying longer than her.
Sorry to hear about the bfn's ladies, ssbd to you all!

I know how you feel. I am supporting my bestie through an abortion at the moment. So devastating for me (because I am Pro-Life) but I have to support her because she has no one else. I always think to myself that all of these knocks are somehow preparing me for parenthood!

Future, What did you pee on though - remember, a lot of the "internet cheapies" actually have a much higher sensitivity than more expensive ones. For example, the internet ones I use will show a +ve at 10miu HcG and FRER quoted level is 25miu - which would mean you could get a +ve 2-3 days earlier on the internet stick. If I was you I'd use another internet one and see if it's darker... and wait a few days for the "better" test.
It is always possible to have a "chemie" too - but even then, a chemie (god knows why it's called that, neither my OB nor my doc use that term as they think it's misleading) still indicates that fertilisation has occurred and that implantation has at least started as there is no other way for HcG to be present in your blood****** (not quite true, but under these circumstances I don't think uterine or other cancers are an issue...)
If the line came up within time, chances are it was a true positive. If it appeared afterwards (and Crystal Clear are notorious for evaps, even quite quickly so that's not just a problem with the others (and with the paper dip ones it seems to be less common))
So anyway, chin up and poas on a cheapie as well

Catkin - Thanks for that info - am too scared to POAS today so I am waiting now until tomorrow or Sunday. I will definitely try another internet cheapie as per your advice before an FRER.
HopefulMaiden - Welcome!! I stopped the pill in February so I can totally relate to the "rollercoaster" feeling. This month is the first month where my chart actually resembles a normal cycle.
I've just checked out your chart and notice you have a lot of open circles in your luteal phase. Are you taking your temp at the same time every morning? It's hard to interpret otherwise. However, your high temp today does look promising but a single temp shouldn't be analysed by itself. Your chart should be analysed as a whole pattern to gain a true understanding of what's going on.
AFM - My chart went triphasic today!! YIPPEEEE!! Got the notification from FF so am pretty excited. I am really praying that this is a positive sign for me.
