Only reason is OPKs. I never used them before, so relied on my blood tests to tell me when to DTD. Would prefer to have a couple of cycles where I monitor myself. Having had one (chem) BFP showed me my body can do it.
Just need to quit all my vices and give my body a fighting chance. That's what this month will be about. No more smoking. No more drinking (after AF finishes) and more healthy eating. Here's hoping.
I really hope we can get out happy endings without IVF... Fx!!!

Around two years. First 4 months was "let's see how we go", after that it was actively trying and then May last year we saw the FS.
FS involved Metformin for 2-3 months, then Ovulation Induction for three months (Sept = BFP chem, Oct = BFN, Dec = BFN). (November skipped as i had to have surgery to get rid of a cyst near my tailbone).
Now acupuncture in an attempt prior to heading back for OI and IVF.

Keep in mind quitting smoking can be a huge jolt to your body and may impact ttc negatively short term, first. Amazing choice to make, and your body will thank you for it. Just important to know it can get worse before it gets better xx

@Bellefire - I'm still up in the air as to whether I want to go down the IVF path. Obviously, a big part of me wants to be selfish and have the chance of growing, and bringing a child into this world that's a part of me and DH, myself... but another part of me is wondering if it's worth putting my body through all of it.
Money (as capitalist as it may sound) is not a factor. We're very lucky to be in the situation we are right now, with the mortgage paid off and no major debts and both of us being in decent paying jobs. DH has always said, if necessary, we can get loans for whatever we need to, so very sweet of him. It's more a case of me being ready for that next step.
We've discussed if things don't work out (ie. IVF, surrogacy, adoption) and have decided that we would be happy just being him and me... But a large part of me feels so guilty not being able to give him something that should just come "naturally" to me as a woman. I feel like nature has let him, and consequently me, down.
But that said, I'll keep trying what I *can* control and leave the rest up to nature and science.
I may end up down the IVF path, but if we do, I need to ensure DH understands what my body will be put through before we go down that path. Through OI I didn't feel as emotionally supported as I should have, so don't want to go down the rabbit hole of IVF without ensuring he'll be there to help me out emotionally.
I'm sorry you're in a place you can't seek further assistance. I can't imagine how that must be for you. Is your GP able to assist with non-FS treatment?
